    What if this had happened at a Republican gathering? What if one of the right wingers said "the bitch Hillary"? The left would be all up in arms. If the Republican didn't condemn their calling her that, they would be reamed too. But this wasn't something I found on the front page or the political page. I had to catch it as a sub-article on a very little read site.

    The press is so clearly slanted.

    It did, and it has. Hillary clinton was called a "bitch" at a McCain rally, and I McCain "smiled".

    Bush's Mom has called Hillary a bitch. Republicans routinely call her a bitch.

    Why is it that I can find video of McCain but can't find them of Hillary and this? In the McCain video his smile isn't one of pleasure. It's a very uneasy smile. He chuckles about it and in the end says he has respect for her. Do you think Clinton did the same? Did she in the end say she respects at least that he's our current pres? I doubt it.

    I think he should of taken it a step farther and said something along the lines of "I understand your passion for this election cycle but language like that doesn't belong in the discussion." He might not of gone that far but at least showed respect to Hillary in his comments.

    And as I remember the McCain "bitch" situation..there were many people who came on the news commentary shows to complain that he should have come straight forward and stated that the person who made the comment shouldn't be calling names.

    Come on. Even us Democrats know that Hillary is a b*tch. That is what makes her tough!

    Face it! If you were a woman married to Bill, you'd be a b*tch also!

    haha, you're an idiot. Hillary was called a bitch and McCain just laughed along. So much for your liberal media typical bullshit that you guys love to spoon feed each other.
