[VIDEO] Fiorina Responds to The View: ‘I Am Tired of Being Insulted by Liberal Feminists’ 

“There is nothing more threatening to the liberal media in general, and Hillary Clinton in particular, than a conservative woman. So of course there’s a double standard.” 

Carly Fiorina responded to being mocked by the hosts of The View on Fox News Sunday this morning by saying conservative women are a big threat to liberals.

“And conservative women from Sarah Palin to Michele Bachmann to Carly Fiorina are long used to this. It will not stop me. It will not scare me and maybe, the ladies of ‘The View,’ if I come back on again, let’s see if they have the guts to say that to my face.”

unrock

At least five who appeared in the PSA — “Girls” actress Lena Dunham, comedian Whoopi Goldberg, “Orange is the New Black” actress Natasha Lyonne, “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” star E.J. Johnson, and actor Darren Criss — did not vote in the last midterm, records from Los Angeles County and New York City show.

Rock The Vote released a public service announcement last month with a parody of Lil Jon‘s “Turn Down For What” that featured public figures who explained why they planned to vote in the midterm elections, but according to public records, a number of them didn’t vote in the last midterm election.

Is ‘Black Friday’ Racist?

Fearing punishment and social alienation, a nervous liberal ponders, "Is it racist to say 'Black Friday?''

Fearing punishment and social alienation, a nervous liberal ponders, “Am I a racist? Is it okay to say ‘Black Friday?”

There’s nothing like tuning into an episode of “The View” for a little exploration of social sensitivities in the modern American culture.

In keeping with that tradition, on Black Friday, a term used to describe the Friday following Thanksgiving, which is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season, the use of the word “black” to mark this occasion was a topic of discussion on “The View” for its potential “racist” implications.

Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, who has her own primetime HLN cable show, debated the use of “black” on the Nov. 27 pre-recorded broadcast. Goldberg, a black woman, took the meaning to be a positive and that there was nothing wrong with it used that way. Behar, however, was trouble with the word “black” used in conjunction with Friday, taking the meaning as a negative (emphasis added):

GOLDBERG: Oh, hello and welcome to ‘The View.’ Today is Black Friday, all day long,” Goldberg said.  “And I’m going to stay black all day because of it.
BEHAR: Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?
GOLDBERG: Well, I would have called it African American Friday, but that’s taking something away from it.
BEHAR:  But there’s a negative connotation to it? Or does it mean something else?
GOLDBERG: No, it’s like when you make all the money – you’re in the black.
BEHAR:  So it’s positive?
GOLDBERG: Yeah. It’s in the black, so it’s a huge great thing.
BEHAR: A lot of times, like blackmail is negative, black sheep.
GOLDBERG: Black people.
BEHAR: No, not black people.
GOLDBERG: But it used to be, it used to be.

Coulter Derangement Syndrome

Good item by Kathy Shaidle 

Mugged and Ann Coulter Derangement Syndrome, Part 2:

Arguing with Coulter-haters is futile because their reaction to her is visceral, not logical

Last week, I talked about Ann Coulter’s new book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama .

Like all her books, this one is difficult to write about in a thousand words or less.

They’re always packed with quotable quotes, shocking discoveries from MSM archives, little-known historical nuggets — and infuriating stylistic tics like speed-bumping serious arguments with sarcastic, and sometimes obtuse, jokes.

So I’m back with more about Mugged, along with an investigation into what I call Coulter Derangement Syndrome, or CDS.

You know what I mean:Ann Coulter’s very existence sets millions of folks off.

Some of those people even call themselves conservative.

What’s that about?

And how does CDS impact the reception for, and potential impact of, Mugged?
