Decision ’08: Can u control yo hoe?

“I went to your house; your girl came in and started cussing you out. You should have slapped her in her face, I wanted to tell you, but it wasn’t my place.” – Snoop Dogg

It seems obvious enough to me: If a man can’t run his own household, how the hell can he expect to run an entire country? As such, in a presidential election, you’d think the media would spend more time focusing on the candidates’ family life rather than such frivolous issues as, say, John Edwards haircut. But of course they don’t.

I attempted to rectify this situation in the ’04 election with a series of posts on the candidates’ spouses. For example, the fact that John Kerry’s wife considered herself “cheeky and sexy” and didn’t see any issue with talking about how she still enjoys to fuck at the ripe old age of 65 let me know he lacked leadership qualities.

Even more disturbing was John Edwards’ wife’s issues with her weight, which I took to have more so to do with a woman’s ego than anything else. Here John Edwards is, running for the second highest office in the land, and she can’t even be bothered to hop on a treadmill. Keep in mind, this was before I was aware that she’s been battling cancer for some time, but still. I thought cancer was supposed to make you lose weight.

*lights up a square*

Well the ’08 election cycle has begun, and fortunately for us all, John Kerry is off in Massachusetts wind surfing, or whatever it is he does. John Edwards is back, running for the big prize, but this time his wife is sick with cancer, which pretty much absolves her of any personal criticism. And if Hillary Clinton wins, Bill Clinton would be this country’s first First Gentlemen, which is just wrong on so many levels.

Which brings us to Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, whom, if you notice, has been in the news a lot lately. Recently, she quit her job as the quota hire-in-chief (right?) for the University of Chicago Hospital to spend more time focusing on her husband’s campaign, and already I notice she’s been doing a lot more press. I wonder if this is the best idea in the world.

Of course, being a black woman with a high-paying job and a stern, Condoleezza Rice-style visage, Michelle Obama is going to run the risk of being characterized by the media as castrating and unlovable, if not an outright lesbian. But I think we all know that stereotypes, which I prefer to call truisms, aren’t just invented out of whole cloth like the news at AllHipHop.com, and indeed Michelle Obama hasn’t been doing herself any favors with her behavior on the campaign trail thus far.

First, there was that dumbass interview on 60 Minutes, in which she suggested that Barack could get shot going to the gas station, as if he was that kid in Boyz in the Hood. I remember watching that shit (the interview), and right when she says that, a look comes over his face, as if to suggest, “How in the world did I ever get myself into this?” Clearly she wasn’t going off the notes her handlers, if not Barack himself, gave her before the interview.

Also there have been problems with her talking shit about him to the media, questioning his intelligence as well as his manliness, as if that could possibly help him get elected. I mean, it’s bad enough he’s going into this as the candidate with the least experience, not to mention being the first black candidate with a real chance at being elected, without his wife yapping to the press about him being incapable of doing the laundry and inexplicably referring to him as “the brother.”

Michelle’s excuse:

“This is who we are. I’ve got a loud mouth. I tease my husband. He is incredibly smart, and he is very able to deal with a strong woman, which is one of the reasons why he can be president, because he can deal with me.”

Which brings me to my point: Since when did tearing your own husband down for the media constitute showing your strength as a woman? If Michelle Obama really wants to show how strong she is, she’ll learn how to do what it takes to make herself more palatable to the American people, who Barack will be counting on to elect him to office. If that means learning how to shut the fuck up and act like a woman every once in a while, then so be it.

  • these posts are racist

    “Wasn’t her job as a “Diversity Coordinator” or some shit? I’m just saying…”

    So anything having to do with “diversity” is equivalent to a “quota hire”?

    In any event, she was Vice President for Community and External Affairs for the University of Chicago Hospitals.

    “Following law school, she was an associate at the Chicago branch of the law firm Sidley Austin. [Sidley is one of the most prestigious law firms in the world.] Subsequently, she held public sector positions in the Chicago city government as an Assistant to the Mayor and Assistant Commissioner of Planning and Development. In 1993 she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit organization encouraging young people to work on social issues in nonprofit groups and government agencies.

    Mrs. Obama served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago since 1996 where she developed the University’s Community Service Center. She then worked for the University of Chicago Hospitals beginning in 2002, first as executive director for community affairs and, beginning May, 2005, as Vice President for Community and External Affairs at the University of Chicago Hospitals.”

    And self Hating BOL summarizes her as a “quota hire”. You couldn’t get hired to clean the floors at Harvard Law.

  • these posts are racist

    Michelle Obama majored in sociology at Princeton University, graduating cum laude in 1985, and obtained her Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School in 1988.

    So having a degree from Harvard precludes a person from being a quota hire?

    Think about it. What does a Vice President of Community Affairs even do, other than exist just in case the U of Chicago Hospitals need to produce a high profile black executive? And why would someone with a background in law end up an executive at a hospital?

    Of course having a law degree from harvard does not preclude some from being a “quota hire” but you produce no evidence that’s is the case here…I offer her educational bio to show that she is clearly accomplished.

  • jeff

    Great fucking post! These ‘quota-filling’ ass women really need to shut the fuck up. No we not boycotting buses in Alabama anymore, but the same reason why a black person gets hired for a job is the same reason a black person may not get hired for a job…that black skin. A qualified black person will get a job to help avoid the company from being too anglo and being taken to the media by al and jesse, but a qualified black person may not get hired simply because he is black. It’s shameful I guess, but it’s a sad truth. Blacks need to stop fighting for equality and just fight for freedom because ain’t no white person gonna look at you as anything other than inferior. Does that mean that you are?…HELL NO, but a degree from Harvard and a million dollar salary won’t make him change his mind. A redneck truck driver thinks he’s better than a black doctor simply because deep down, he believes in his heart that he is still a nigger. These black women who wanna go and run they fucking mouth like they are really just running shit need to tone it way the hell down. Running your mouth too much puts you in the spotlight and you better hope to God that some guy you fucked way back doesn’t have you on video tape being a slore and snorting powder while you were in college. A broad will get her a job for 50 grand a year, buy her a little cheap ass house, a car, and a louis vutton bag and think all of a sudden she is dynamic and shit. It’s like she automatically thinks she has testicles and can stand toe to toe with a man. Chicks know goddamn well that they get scared when they see an ant running across the kitchen floor and they want their strong hubby to exterminate it for them. These chicks need to know their role and feed the kids, do the dishes, the laundry and dish out them blow jobs and be content with that shit. Let the man pay the bills and cut the grass and all will be dandy. Michelle Obama needs to really shut her ass up before she puts her foot in her mouth and then fucks up Barack’s shit even more. If Barack loses the election, she will be filling out applications again.

Michelle Obama doesn’t have to cowtow to anyone. She got her own shit together unlike some of y’all. She is a Harvard grad, that means something to the outside world. That means more than having a hot car while staying at mom’s. And all of you that say Obama does not have a chance, he won’t cause niggas like y’all sat on your asses instead of voting.

    and crimson: what does republican or democrat have to do with anything? quite frankly, i think 99% of the readership here, regardless of political affiliation, would be diametrically opposed to the bush regime.

    now, understanding that, following the bush years, america has drifted first toward relative conservatism and later toward a more moderate (yet still not “liberal” by any means) stance, wouldn’t it make sense that a blabber-mouth woman talking shit about her husband (who happens to be running for president and all) would be a crutch, and not an asset, to mr. obama?

    harvard grad, hospital exec, whatever. we can argue about her laurels all day long. fact remains: she’s a thorn in motherfucking barack’s side and needs to shut the fuck up.

But that is the reason why a black dude just shouldn’t marry a career lady black chick. They run off at the mouth crazy trying to steal the show instead of providing support for their man.

    Bill Clinton cheated on his wife and Bush was a alcoholic, but their wives knew better than to talk shit about them. They made sure they got the right chick for the right job, which a major shorty with gwop that can shut the fuck up. Obama really fucked himself up for getting with that broad.

    this is at least ridiculous and at most worth reading.

  • Harold Crick

    If Obama loses (and chances are he will), it won’t be because America refuses to elect a black guy. Most of America doesn’t really care enough about race to not vote for a guy for that reason alone. Some obviously still do, but those people probably don’t vote, and if they do they’re still not a large enough group to make much of a difference.

    People talking about how no black man can be elected president are completely out of touch with the majority of Americans.

  • Nancy Irving

    I don’t think you have a very good idea of what will be “palatable” to “the American people.”

    Your own horizon is limited to a very, very small percentage of the electorate, namely, sexually-insecure black men. (Probably about 1/2% of the electorate, I would estimate.)

    If that means learning how to shut the fuck up and act like a woman every once in a while, then so be it.

    ^^Act like a woman? And who better to tell a woman how to be one than a man….

    Negro please. If you want to say she needs to learn how to be a supportive mate and not talk so much…that’s fine. A lot of men & women talk too much. I’m sure Bill has said one or two things Hillary hasn’t appreciated (then again, who knows…the Clinton train is a well-oiled machine), but no one will be speaking against him.

    Acknowledge that a relationship is a partnership. Sure, men and women have their roles, but making sexist comments like that^^^ set us back so much farther.

    I saw that interview and was shocked that his wife was that candid. Did that mean she should “know her place” and just be quiet? Hell no. It means that she shouldn’t say stupid things that have the possibility of drawing negative attention.

    Having such an accomplished woman by his side as his partner and mother to his daughters is a huge benefit. I don’t know why some men can’t see that (that’s to all of you speaking so nonchalantly about her successful career in the university and hospital systems).
    The difference between her and Hillary during Bill’s time running and in office is that Hillary was ready for the political life; she censors herself.

    But please believe Bill Clinton was/is happy to have a smart woman to bounce ideas off of.

    All Michelle has to do is watch the foolish lines.

    Shame on you Bol for using one woman’s snafu as a reason to imply woman are best kept quiet and on the sidelines.

    Most of y’all agreeing were probably raised by single mothers. Where would you be if they didn’t have backbones and kept quiet?
