"The buttons at the CA GOP's convention that took a shot at Hillary Clinton's body are nasty, mean, and vile. You should condemn them immediately and send a message that these kinds of attacks against any candidate of any party are off-limits."

"KFC Hillary Special: 2 fat thighs, 2 small breasts... left wing"

That's the text from a sexist button directed at Hillary Clinton that was available at the California Republican Convention this weekend. Taking a cheap dig at a woman's body just because you don't like her politics is disgusting, and we've got to call it out.

Word is spreading about these vile buttons. The Huffington Post, Salon, and the San Francisco Chronicle have already reported this story. Media backlash got the buttons removed from the convention but party leaders have yet to condemn them.

Will you sign the petition demanding the California GOP and the Republican National Committee condemn these sexist buttons?

These buttons are not just mean, they are downright childish. Whoever made those buttons is making the GOP look like a bunch of big babies!

Given the way the GOP discussed women in the last election the impression is that they don't like women would be an understatement. The attacks on Hilary Clinton are based on fear more than anything as a politician and face it if there was a GOP KFC special it would just be a right wing that is rotten to the core.

GOP = Grotesque Old Pedophiles! The sexist, demeaning and truly despicable "buttons" could easily target Ann Romney, Barbara OOGLEE Bush, Chris Christy, Newt the puke Gingrich, arsewipe Limbaugh and so many others on the wrong side! As the old adage goes "people who live in glass house". If my post sounds nasty, trust me it is meant to BE. Not only would I support Hillary rodham Clinton, she is admirable, intellectually brilliant, she also knows the game both from 8 years in the White House, but for all the other Ab Fab work she has done.

N&S. Just a question, Scott: how many female politicians have been there through the centuries and how many female politicians have run for president? Think before you type.

Ten days ago, the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives shut down the federal government.

Two days ago, a pollster identified things that now are more popular than Congress. Here are some of them: Dog poop. Zombies. Witches. Hemorrhoids.

Yesterday, another pollster measured the GOP approval rating. Answer: 28%. No major political party has ever seen an approval rating this low.
