    I don't really need to watch The Daily show's clip to recognize sexism & misogyny when I see it. Clinton was beat to a pulp by the media, especially CNN & NBC. Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Donna Brazil, and the rest of their ignornant news team was a 24/7 Obama advertisement and attacked Clinton brutally. It was clear from the type of stories they reported and the phrases they used that most of the pathetic "best political team" has some major mommy issues. What I found really surprising was they number of female reporters they dragged off the street corners who were gleeful of the opportunity to attack a female candidate.

    I think the Daily Show handled this very well.

    Humorous but definitely to the point.

    So, men are afraid of losing their testicles because a man is strong? Men are afraid of having a woman in charge? Really? Noooo......

    Good onya, Daily Show, for pointing out what was allowed to come out into America with NO filtering whatsoever!!

    Let's see the country try something like that on Obama, and you'd have heard the outcry around the world!!

    That was really funny. Thanks!!!!!!

    I think that of all the candidates, Hillary was the most mysogynistic because I knew a relief worker that went to talk to Hillary Clinton about the starving children of Iraq in the 90's and she did the Madeline Albright routine. SATANIST.

    Hillary Clinton's feminist promoted the bombing of Afghanistan that has led to 12 million people dead. Now, tens of thousands of homeless orphans in Kabul alone are eating garbage in the streets because their parents are DEAD. Thanks Hillary. I know how much you respect women.

    Iraqi women getting C sections without anesthesia because YOUR HUSBAND didn't think they needed painkillers in Iraq. You didn't even think Iraqi schools were worthy of PENCILS.

    I don't have to watch it. I saw it on TV and read it in the newspapers. The media was all over Hillary, but gave Obama a free ride. It disgusted me.

    They talked about her clothes, her shoes,her cleavage and aging in office. I don't recall hearing anything remotely similar being said concerning the male candidates.

    No, but I will when I tell you to stop whining. Dude she lost, she ran an inadequate campaign. Nobody stole anything from her but her own lack of JUDGEMENT on DAY 1 of her campaign.
