Somebody on a cable news channel suggested that the Clintons were "pimping out" their daughter Chelsea because the 27 year old McKenzie consultant was making calls to voters on behalf of her mother. I thought it was funny.
Well, Hill and Bill got really ticked off by the insinuation [Of what exactly? That Chelsea is having sex for money? I don't think so]. So they wrote letters and made some phone calls and the guy who made the statement has been suspended from duty for two weeks. Way to sling your weight around you two. I may have voted for the Hillmeister in the primary, but I sure think there was no need for this overkill. "Pimping out" was an amusing turn of phrase to make a point. BFD. And don't say that Obama's family would have made a federal case out of it -- you're comparing apples [underage children] and oranges [an adult who made her own choice to campaign].
Whatever happened to free freaking speech? [I had to say "freaking" because AOL doesn't allow free speech in this space, since some (*#&$* people get upset by it].
If you don't like what the guy said -- and it wasn't slanderous, only creative, you can 1) go on the air and refute the statement or, 2) ignore it. But no-o-o-o, Hilary is beating it to death.
Here's an idea -- let Chelsea handle it. Step away from the microphone Hill. Chelsea is an adult. She has a job, making obscene amounts of money because she's a member of a former first family -- oh, sorry, I meant to say because she is deserving and she earned it. The Stanford and Oxford University grad is old enough to fend for herself, Mom.
Plus, if you look up the definition of "pimp" it includes using someone else for your own personal gain. And letting the Chelsea girl make phone calls for her mom so Hilary can win the Democratic nomination for prez sure seems to fit that description.
It's not like Chelsea is a virgin or anything. I think.
