Muffling Chelsea?

According to this AP article, Hillary Clinton doesn’t want the media talking to her kid:

But onstage, Chelsea never speaks; she stands next to her mother and applauds but utters not a single sentence and doesn’t even say hello. And reporters covering the campaign have been put on notice that Chelsea is not available to speak to them. An aide follows the former first daughter as she works the crowd, shushing reporters who approach her and try to ask any questions.

Seems kind of odd to me to have your child show up and campaign for you to just be a pretty face.

    I think it will be very interesting when Chelsea writes her tell-all memoirs. I cannot imagine growing up with parents like that.

    I’m sure they had to offer her great sums of cash to be on the campaign trail with Mommy Dearest.

    Pretty Face??? Surely you jest.

    Chelsea isn’t that bad.

    Since I know you were boozing it up last night, the beer goggles must still be in place.

    Lay off the kid. It’s bad enough she has never been anything to her parents but a political asset, we don’t need to make unflattering comments about shit she can’t help.

    ‘ell, I’d have thought y’all would be happy with at least one face you could look at on stage.

    This whole “Chelsea Clinton is ugly” meme is just kind of an unfair criticism that started because when she first become a public figure she really was just a gawky, awkward teenager. She’s not hot now, but she’s hardly some troglodyte, either. She’s just pretty much an average woman. I don’t know what the hell you guys who are jumping on her expect average human beings to look like. I’m sorry, but if you passed her on the street, she wouldn’t be inspiring rude comments in your head, she’d just be another face in the crowd.

    Everyone that puts their face in public invites scrutiny. If it bothers you, stay home. Mother Clinton’s family members are used as props to try and make us believe she is ,in fact, a human being.

    What are you trying to accomplish with saying something like that? You’re just making an excuse for acting like a dick. Hope that makes you feel cool on the internet!

    It just blows my mind how people are willing to use any excuse they can to throw aside a facade of being a decent person to conveniently ridicule someone who just happens to be in the family of someone they disagree with.

    I pretty much completely disagree with Hillary Clinton, and don’t think Chelsea is particularly attractive, but I don’t see what being an anonymous internet bully making fun of someone for not being hot accomplishes.

    OOD, is not a dick. A dick is part of a male, if not always a man. Neither go around taking cheap shots at the children of people they are afraid to take a shot at, albeit for different reasons.

    I won’t speculate as to what OOD is, but I heartily disagree that he is a dick. My dick is offended.
