President Barack Obama congratulated the U.S. Women’s National Team at the White House on Tuesday, thanking the soccer world champions for challenging stereotypes about women in sports.
The players and coaches of the USWNT joined Obama in a reception for the team in the White House’s East Room. The team won the FIFA Women’s World Cup in July, defeating Japan 5-2 in the final match. It was the team’s first World Cup victory since 1999.
Obama said the athletes had “inspired girls to dream bigger — and by the way, inspired millions of boys to look at girls differently, which is just as important.”
“This team taught all of America’s children that ‘playing like a girl’ means you’re a badass,” the president went on, to great applause. “Perhaps I shouldn’t have used that phrase.”
Wow! Never before in our history has a politician uttered such an uplifting message.
Hillary is all about the wimmens! Vote for her ladyparts!
How is it possible that no one has ever proposed such a radical idea before today?
Sarah Palin unleashed a withering critique of congressional Republicans Saturday, lambasting them for not cutting spending deeper and faster, and saying the party needs to “fight like a girl.”
“We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic,” Palin said during a rally in front of the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison. “What we need from you, GOP, is to fight.” Pointing to the national champion University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team, Palin said the GOP could learn from its resolve and “needs to learn how to fight like a girl.”
Sarah Palin is sooooooooo stupid.
