Reach for the stars, bimbos

President Obama recently delivered a commencement speech at Barnard College in Manhattan. He told the graduating class of all females to “Fight for a seat at the head of the table,” and, “Don’t be content to just sit back and watch.”
 
This from the same president who accepted a $1 million campaign donation from Bill Maher – ya’ know the cable TV host known for calling Sarah Palin the “c” word and Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann a “bimbo.”
 
The president could have used Maher’s – and Limbaugh’s – comments as teachable moments for both parties.
 
But, he didn’t. Instead the president and father of two girls cashed Maher’s check.
 
With one hand, the president gave the women of Barnard a high-five. And, with the other, he filled his campaign coffer with a donation from a misogynist.
 
The result? A mixed message to the tune of, “Reach for the stars, bimbos.”
 
The war on women is alive and well – with our country’s leader setting the tone.
