Protesters ask Clinton to iron shirts

SALEM, N.H. - Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign stop was interrupted Monday when two men stood in the crowd and began screaming, "Iron my shirt!" during one of her final appearances before the New Hampshire primary.

Clinton, a former first lady running to become the nation's first female president, laughed at the seemingly sexist protest that suggested a woman's place is doing the laundry and not running the country.

"Ah, the remnants of sexism — alive and well," Clinton said to applause in a school auditorium.

The two men were removed from the hall after raising a pair of signs that said, "Iron my shirt!" They also shouted the same slogan.

"Can we turn the lights on? It's awfully dark," Clinton said, cueing the lights to come and police to come forward to take the men away.

The overflow crowd burst into applause and some began shouting, "Iron my shirt" as the two were taken from the hall.

"As I think has been abundantly demonstrated, I am also running to break through the highest and hardest glass ceiling," she said.

Clinton later joked about the incident as she invited questions.

"If there's anyone left in the auditorium who wants to learn how to iron a shirt, I'll talk about that," she said with a smile.

Clinton placed a disappointing third place in Iowa's caucuses last week and faces a tough challenge in Tuesday's primary from Barack Obama, who leads her with just one day remaining.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

Exactly my point. Some silly guys heckle Clinton and she comes out looking like the victim. What they did hasn't helped at all.

I suspect it was a plant by her. Never know about this conniving bitch. She came out smelling like a rose. Race did not work for her so she going to try sexism. Next week it could be, I am divorcing Bill. Poor me!

"Iron My Shirt" Protester Was a Plant
January 08, 2008 02:00 PM EST

Today at a whistle stop in Salem, New Hampshire, an alleged protester raised a sign saying "Iron My Shirt" while hollering the same idiotic slogan.

I do not know anybody in the men's movement who would resort to this level of idiocy. I do, however, know a few individuals hitting the whistle stops with truly intelligent questions, all of whom have been hustled away literally before they could finish the question.

The way Hillary handled the situation was too smooth and prepared to be a legitimate protest. Having worked in the entertainment business previously, I know a plant when I see one. Hillary spammed the Florida debates with stool pigeons and was caught red-handed. She is up to her old tricks trying to turn her presidency into a feminist women's entitlement issue. In fact, I'm so sure this guy was a plant I'll buy Hillary a vegetarian salad if it wasn't.

The AP lied about what went on. They claim that two men were yelling "Iron My Shirt". The video clearly evidences a lone person.

Hillary is a power-mad woman who will go to any ends to pontificate, yell, cry, wheedle, cajole, or bullyrag herself into the Presidency. She will never get it, because America is too wise to the wiles of radical feminism to believe she has anything other than trouble to offer America.

I think the iron my shirt won over many female voters thus insuring her victory. She will come out with this kind of crap every week on the stump. This kind of stuff may backfire on her if it becomes a regular event. I would like know what the two turkey's candidate affiliation is that made the shirt comment.
