You know Elizabeth Warren’s “nasty woman” rallying cry for Hillary Clinton must have been effective because yesterday, Fox News’ Outnumbered show spent four minutes whining about it.
The “fair and balanced” panel of five conservatives and no liberals was full of faux outrage.
Kennedy introduced the segment with a shot at Warren for saying she is part Native American: “Oh look at this! Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren joining Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail - of tears - and revving up a crowd in New Hampshire by ripping into Donald Trump and turning his ‘nasty woman’ comment from the last debate into a feminist rallying cry!” Those last three words got extra sarcasm.
We saw a clip of Warren’s comments: “Women have had it with guys like you … and nasty women have really had it with guys like you. … Nasty women are tough. Nasty women are smart. And nasty women vote. And, on Nov. 8, we nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes to get you out of our lives forever!”
“Whoa, Liz, slow your roll,” Kennedy snarked. “She’s really embracing that ‘nasty’ title isn’t she?”
Lou Dobbs, a Trump supporter and the show’s #OneLuckyGuy whined:
DOBBS: I’ve got to be honest. After hearing that anger, that hate, I’m a little hurt, a little intimidated, a little fearful just thinking. I mean, who does she think nasty women represent a threat to? It’s not to men. It’s to other women. I mean, it’s the most bizarre thing. These people are tripping, if I may use a 60’s phrase.
Cohost Sandra Smith complained, “You really get that sense that she thinks she’s speaking on behalf of all of us.”
Kennedy griped, “Do you really want to brand yourself a nasty woman? What a way to be positive.”
Last, we got to Trump defender Harris Faulkner. She suggested that Trump’s “nasty woman” comment about Clinton was substantive and not a childish insult.
FAULKNER: I’m a little confused about just how Elizabeth Warren got to be the one who could decide the meaning that Donald Trump attached to that word during the debate. I mean he was talking about, they both were talking about all sorts of topics during that debate. … He calls her crooked Hillary. He was putting that, as I understood it, inside that title which you’ve heard him say he would throw her in jail if he could, if he were president. So I’m wondering, now Senator Warren has attached this sort of, “Well, it’s the every girl and we’re all nasty.” In the context of what he was talking about, that would not actually be all women.
“I just want to think of all those women who needed a rallying cry from Elizabeth Warren to get out to vote,” Dobbs kvetched. “It was preposterous.”
“I don’t know if that’s an effective rallying cry,” Kennedy added.
This is what passes for news analysis on Fox News.
Watch it below, from the October 25, 2016 Outnumbered.
I really like the legs and mascara show on Foxy News. Those bimbos are hot. (Hot air, too.) Megyn Kelly looks positively “nasty” with that awesome Cover Girl Victoria’s Secret look. Grab them skirts, Fox Babes. Your ratings are in part thanks to your looking sexy for your geriatric, and younger low I.Q. male audience.
Compare Amy Goodman’s stage makeup to the Rockettes rocking the punditry at Fox News and Legs. So, it bets the question. Why DO the Fox Babes wear such sexy makeup jobs? To look more “professional”. Or to look more like “a professional”. (Ann Coulter is a 365 day a year Halloween mask. )
El 84 has spoken.

I’ve always found Harris Faulkner to be creepy. She comes across to me as a soulless corporate executive type or would be perfect to work in HR who would announce to you without any human emotion that you’re being laid off. She seems almost robotic.
NOTE TO HARRIS FAULKNER
You are a sad excuse for a mother. Working at a network that sexually harassed its female employees. You are telling your children that its ok to look away at bad behavior as along as you receive a massive salary. You are a disgrace to your children.
Bemused I hope you are right about those premiums. Rising costs made me drop health insurance in the 90s. I don’t want to go through that again. Health insurance is a racket in this country.
Coverage of the expected increase in insurance premiums under Obamacare focuses on the “average” increase, nationwide, being 22%.
According to one version on CNN, it would appear, however, that the “range” may be too wide to warrant the use of a simple arithmetic average, i.e. between minus 3 (Indiana) at one end to plus 118 (Arizona) at the other end. When I was helping crunch numbers many moons ago, we were told to watch out for “outliers”, i.e. abnormal numbers that could skew the results. I’d be really curious to see the details of that study but can’t find it.
