UPDATE: ** Word is this is not an official Hillary Clinton social media campaign. I have changed the wording of the article accordingly to reflect it was her supporters who did this and not her campaign.

It’s like a real life episode of ‘Friends’ except this time it’s Grandma Moses with the problem. Hillary Clinton’s supporters launched a social media campaign aimed at convincing dudes it is perfectly fine to vote for her because they are “man enough” to do so.

I guess having seen the reaction people had to Obama’s Obamacare Pajama Boy disaster, Hillary’s supporters wanted to find a “real man” to be the face of her campaign. So here is what they came up with:

hipster-beard

Before we get the to best part allow me to make a few comments about this.

1. First is the delusion Hillary’s fans have that manhood is defined by having a beard and tattoos. It signifies nothing because it is more of a style than a state of being more than anything else.

2. Naturally, the implication is made that conservative men won’t vote for a woman for President. Of course, if Carly Fiorina were Hillary’s opponent, she’d beat Hillary among men and easily. What is it with the left and identity politics?

3. This is a stock photo inserted into their ad campaign. Hillary’s campaign headquarters is in Brooklyn. Her supporters could have sent an intern out on the street to throw a rock into a crowd they’d hit a bearded hipster. If they had done that, they’d have avoided this:

syphilis-awareness

The image has been used on public transportation to alert Portland males of the dangers of STD’s

bus-ad

People try to do pull off something that looks “cool” and it turns out to be nothing more than a catalyst for inviting only mockery.

Bill Clinton apparently had no comment.
