Disappearing act

>

“Di Tzeitung”, the newspaper that made Hilary Clinton disappear. I recommend this write-up on the matter, from Dr. Science over at Obsidian Wings:

After the ensuing firestorm, the publisher apologized, and explained: “The readership of the Tzeitung believes that women should be appreciated for who they are and what they do, not for what they look like, and the Jewish laws of modesty are an expression of respect for women, not the opposite.”
I call that bupkis. If Secretary Clinton’s and National Security Council member Tomason’s faces had been pixelated into blurs — as with the classified document sitting in front of Clinton — that would have supported the allegation that the paper was showing respect for their modesty. But it is flat-out impossible to “appreciate women for what they do” while refusing to acknowledge their deeds, or that they did them, or that they exist.

    Hear hear! I thought the same thing when I read this. I appreciate the sentiment, but I don’t buy it. Love the new platform btw, and love that you used the word bupkis, one of my favorites!

    Thanks! I am still getting used to it but it does have a more professional look.

    The credit for bupkis goes to Frau Dr. Science, who I merely quoted.
