Does This Show Bias?
Does this show bias?
From CNN's Dana Bash: "A moment to savor -- Nancy Pelosi seized the gavel and,
with it, power for the Democrats, an ambitious agenda, but, today, history, the first female Speaker, second in line to be president."
How about "a moment to dread" or "a moment to turn one's stomach"?
I'm a woman, and I do not savor the passing of the gavel to Nancy Pelosi. I'm not going to rejoice that she is the first woman Speaker of the House. I'm not going to fawn all over her because of her gender any more than the media or the liberals did over Condoleeza Rice becoming the first woman Secretary of State.
Why do the Democratic party and the media keep pushing for the glorification of individuals because they are women or because they are minorities but then only celebrate them if they are liberals?
So spare me the hoopla and the biased infinitives.

UPDATE: A commenter pointed out that I typed in error that Condi Rice was the "first woman Secretary of State". Madeleine Albright was, of course. What I should have said was that Condi was the "first 'African-American' woman Secretary of State". That is what comes from blogging while literally sick and tired--actually, exhausted. Of course, my goof had nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that I didn't particularly like Madeleine Albright. I'm sure it didn't.
