Sandberg is an ally of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. […]
But why focus the campaign on the word “bossy”?
The answer to that may have something to do with Clinton being called “bossy” during the 2008 campaign by Australian feminist Germaine Greer. Bossy is also more tame than some of the other words Clinton has been called.
Two years ago, Democrats launched a campaign to brand Republicans as engaging in a ”war on women,” a campaign with a lasting impact that will no doubt stretch into the 2016 elections if Clinton runs.
Now the Ban Bossy campaign gives Democrats another weapon to use against those who disagree with Clinton’s policy ideas.
This way, anyone who criticizes Mrs. Clinton for her notoriously imperious, overbearing, domineering, difficult personality can be automatically attacked as “Anti-Woman;” much as all criticism of President Obama is attributed to “racism.” [But rest assured, calling Sarah Palin any crude, insulting name you want will still mark you as one of the Tolerant Enlightened.]
BTW, my good friend Stoaty Weasel has created a very… compelling… poster for Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 campaign. It’s a bit… uncivil… to reproduce it here; but here’s a link if you are feeling uncivil toward Mrs. Clinton.
