Sheesh, get a grip. What Jon did in no way reflects on Barack. Sure, it was stupid and who among us hasn't done something they regretted while drunk or otherwise impaired. And this happened during the heat of the primary I'm sure when tempers must have been running high and demonizing and otherwise trying your darndest to hate your opponent doesn't come with any difficulty at all. He has apologized, and HRC, your dear leader seems not to be in as vengeful a mood as you. If she can decide to live and let live, why can't you? Will his head on a silver platter like John the Baptist be the only thing that placates you?Do tell, Lloyd. Please give me a list of what you've done while drunk and later regretted so I can judge whether it was merely stupid if I am supposed to use your behavior while drunk as a metric in which to evaluate Jon Favreau's behavior.
What I find fascinating about this comment is that this man sees this pose as an act of hatred against Hillary Clinton while I gave Favreau the benefit of the doubt. That directly contradicts his claim that this was an act of stupidity and it reinforces why this photo is so disturbing to so many women. It also positions President-elect Obama's staff as irrational and emotionally out of control.
What a confidence builder.
This action was more than the result of feelings toward a political rival. I doubt that Favreau and his friend would have struck that same type of pose with a lifesize cardboard cutout of Sen. John McCain.
This man can't understand what I want from the president-elect (who I voted for) because he refuses to think about the drunken behavior of men from any perspective other than the man's. That is dangerous tunnel vision which he can afford to maintain because he isn't likely to be harmed by the attitude expressed in that photo.
For too many men they need to maintain the tunnel vision of looking at their behavior from their perspective alone because looking at their behavior from the perspective of a girl or woman would make them look carelessly cruel at best.
