WDT: Since It's a Topic for Today's Hotline, Let's Analyze Elsie Comment Further (VIDEO)

       When I first read of the Elsie the Cow comment by Ernie LaBaff caught on video as a mucaca moment by a GOP tracker, I dismissed it as the not really funny rants of a doddering old man too many times told how important he is in the Democratic Party. I would have just made light of the remark than blast it.
        Of course Democrats view Mr. LaBaff as a politically muscular blue collar icon.
       However when you view the comment in the context of the Democratic Party's intolerance of such things, it has more meaning. Imagine if a Trump surrogate referred to Mrs. Clinton as a cow. It would be a full 48 hour news cycle of outrage and getting reaction from the Speaker, Senator McCain and Lindsey Graham, as well as excoriation from Mika's Brigade.
         In this case it was at a Mike Derrick rally and the candidate didn't refute it, but why should he...as he was among supporters ,save the tracker. He later apologized.
        Unfortunately, people are tired of PC and feigned outrage, so maybe my original inclination was correct. It's not that big a deal other than it shows we are too sensitive these days and need to toughen up.
       One media note. I wonder what age you have to be to remember Elsie the Cow ?  A photo would be a good aspect for these stories.

Jeff, You are 100% off base on this. This was a gift to Elise. The Democrats have shoved down our throats all this PC crap. Derrick has sought out the Democratic support and the shoe is now on the other foot.

He is owned lock stock and barrel. He has received tons and tons of donations by Pelosi and our very own female Senator Gillibrand. His last ad of being a father and married is demeaning and condescending too Stefanik that she is single and does not have children.

If it's all right to think and say these things about an opponent of the opposite sex you have to ask are they really thinking these same things about female members of their own party.

Gillibrand and Addie could easily lose a combined 100+ lbs between them to get to Stefanik's weight class.

And Ernie is nothing to write home about.

I not only remember Elsie the Cow but I remember that two gentleman from Pilar Pt. were the caretakers of the real Elsie the Cow and they took her to fairs and other events on behalf of Bordon's for people to see. "Elsie" was well liked and respected for her business acumen so I did not see the reference as much of an insult.

President, Elsie the Cow fan club.

This is typical democrat hypocrisy. The people who pretend they are on the side of women and defend Fiorina's face, are really the biggest enimies of women.

I watched the roast of Rob Lowe recently and it was terrible watching all the hateful Hollywood liberals and their comics attack Ann Coulter. It wasn't in good fun it was genuine seething hate they expressed for this woman.

Yet the number one way these liberals insult each other is to imply their target is gay or promiscuous. That's right, the same people who claim to defend the gays, use gay as an insult. And the same people who claim its none of our business what two consenting adults do, use slut shaming as an insult. And the whole pack of idiots in the audience go wild for these type jokes.

Now let's see hear, we are still hearing about Rommney's 47% of voters that don't pay their fair share of taxes tracker recording (the person behind that was Jimma Carters's grandson) that derailed his campaign. Jimma Carter hails his grandson as his hero for that recording. People forget who made that mucaca comment whose campaign was derailed for the Senate another Republican per se.

Let's not sweep this so easily under the rug. Elsie was an image of a cow and we all know what the word cow is referring to.

Ernie is a 'd##k" and we all know what that means. But since Derrick is in lockstep and depends on the 'd##k' for his support he by association is a 'd##' as well and is viewed as it being ok to belittling women.

June care to 'weigh' in!!!! You too Deede another 50+ that would not hit the GOP critical body mass of Stefanik

I dont give a rats ass if some is fat or thin , WHAT i care deeply about is whether they ARE effective ?

Ms Stefanik is a member of the WORST CONGRESS IN DECADES . Frankly she has accomplished nothing of substantive value for the working middle class. Her record is pedestrian at best and lackluster at worst , marked by constant self aggrandizement and puffery and soft ball pr pieces . That is worrisome and cause for concern . The last two years have seen zero progress and the Congress is viewed by many as a pompous debating society full of sound and fury but signifying nothing .

You want more of this , ?? I am for voting ALL incumbents out . They are failures who serve only their monied sponsors .

It was a nothing statement but the democrats would run wild with it. And that is the problem with the world today. Bono says Trump is the worst for America and he has hijacked the republican party. No. Political correctness is the worst idea for America. the over sensitized country is holding thoughts back and encouraging the minorities to take over the county. Sure, the majority, at times, was insensitive to the sufferings of the minorities but get over it, what they are doing to those that disagree is as bad.

This is 9:55 again . I think Ernie Labaff sounded ignorant and was inappropriate in those comments . MY problem with Ms Stefanik and many others in Congress lack of performance for the working class.our lot has NOT improved during her term . That is fact , not emotion .

11:47 You keep voting party before country. Good try though. Your lot may have not changed but mine has. Stefanik's office was able to take care of a major issue for me and my family. Something Owens office never was successful at.

'That is fact, not emotion' She has run circles in her shy of two years in office. Has accomplished more than Owens ever did in his six. Now if she can get on repealing Obamacare completely she will rise to the top. This monster of mandated pay your own share and then for the lazy a## that don't pay theirs repeal and require work for welfare.
Eliminate every social program that has been enacted under Obama.

Ha, ha ha….. Elsie the COW!! Too funny! Donald would love it! Not sure I get the Elsie part though.

Eyepubicus, please explain. What are you talking about now? Is this hypocrite word something that was spurted out at you from Donkey Central. Sure have been using it a lot lately.

Danny, as usual the point goes right over your pointy head. Mayor Graham did not claim that Trump (or T-Rump as you sanctimonious hypocritical non-name-callers call him), does not call people names. What Graham said, is that if Trump were to call a female politician a cow, the media would blast him for it.

There, did I connect the dots good enough for you to understand now? Most people familiar with your rantings would guess no.

Looks like someone already came up with the “Elsie the Cow” moniker.

Pocahontas was a great lady. She may or may not have helped Smith. She went with the Smith party as a hostage to keep the peace. Converted to a Christian. When asked if she wanted to go back to her people, she decided not to. She married a farmer, and had children. Was the toast of other countries. Had a good life. To compare her to that person who lied about being native is wrong. Donald should have read a bit. He was to nice to her.

Thanks for the history lesson Ray. Nice to see that 180 IQ of yours working in such a spectacular way.

8:09 Well how refreshing, you are not going to vote for Addie Russell!

3.37 why couldn't you just have an opinion? I helped a jock stay on the team in high-school. He didn't have many opinions of his own. I wonder where he ended up? He did work at a gas station the last time I saw him.
