I am a self-avowed fan of The Daily Show. Really, I am. But this particular clip was worth a feminist critique. It's a short piece on presidential-nominee-hopeful Hillary Clinton, entitled Let The Conversation Begin.
He starts to get to the point at about 02:52 on the player's clock, more so at 01:44, and the point with which I am particularly interested is 00:55.
"What, in my background, equips me to deal with evil and bad men?" Then she smiles, like she's proud of herself, of how funny and progressive she is. I can't say I dig on this. Politically, it might be clever to pay attention to the "elephant in the room" (as Jon puts it) in a light-hearted manner, but I feel that women in politics are always fighting to balance their policy with press attention on their home life. Is this the way to do it? Or is she just trying to mock her way into favor?
I also noticed that much of the laughter during Jon's ridiculing (Standard: He makes fun of everyone. But that he chose to use a wife-y stereotype for her...) was female. At least, they were the ones laughing louder.
I'm not a Hillary fan. Obama all the way. But... This struck me.
