If FOX News Neil Cavuto were a woman… the fat man defense of Gov Christie

Neil Cavuto is a fat man. Governor Chris Christie is a fat man. Political opponents of Politically Conservative Men can and do launch personal attacks using the Fat Card… or the Age Card …or the White Man Card or the Oreo Card any combination of cards, but they never seem to use the Nuts & Sluts Card on their male opponents they way they do on Conservative Women.

I watched the following video of FOX News Neil Cavuto tearing into MSNBC Chris Matthews following Matthews’ Fat Man Attack on Governor Chris Christie and wondered to myself… has Cavuto ever defended Sarah Palin with such outspoken conviction and energy?

My curiosity piqued, I did a Google search…
…on the following search string: Cavuto Defends Palin

Gee… why don’t I find anything of relevance there? In fact the search turned up an attack on Palin by Cavuto in 2008.

By not actively defending Gov Palin as Cavuto defends Gov Christie, Cavuto tacitly reveals his gender bias for men politicians, especially fat ones, and bias against women politicians (especially beautiful, trim and fit ones?).

Anti-women Genderphobes come in all shades of bias gender charlatanry and knows no single political party or ideology. Political media pundits can smile at a conservative woman politician all the while struggling to resist temptation of rolling their Genderphobic eyes then looking at their manly wrist watches in anticipation of interviewing a quote real politician  unquote from any party.

    Sarah is a very pretty woman… She could be my President.

  2. VotingFemale says:

    Sarah is knock-down drag-out gorgeous and to many men and leftist lesbian feminists (same thing as men) that is a dis-qualifier for being taken seriously.

  3. Foxwood says:

    She really is beautiful, but most of all, she’s right.

    “If they [Republicans] think it’s OK to raise taxes for the embattled middle class. . . if we don’t give more money to millionaires, it really is time for people to take up pitchforks” – Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

    On the Cape it’s not pitchforks, it’s torches.

    The Cape Cod Times has the story of two recent arsons, one in Barnstable and another in Sandwich. “In both cases, the arsonist left a calling card, the message, ‘f— the rich’ at the scene,” the Times reports.

  8. AFVET says:

    Cavuto should elevate his rhetoric to more important issues.
    I agree with his opinions on most things, but the thing about Neil that bugs me the most is that his delivery is fading down to an almost a guttural whisper at the end of his statement.
    I listen to NPR, and the commentators (some) sound like they’re speaking in the back of a church.
    Speak the hell up !
    No, my hearing is just fine.
    Neil, get a voice coach for god’s sake.

  9. Foxwood says:

    Yeah, AFVET. I myself agree most of the time with Neil… especially when ha has the Victoria Secret girls on.

  10. Bob Mack says:

    VF said “Beauty is a curse for women politicians.” Pelosi & Hillary have not been cursed. Sarah can also handle a firearm, a trait I find most admirable.

  11. arlenearmy says:

    If Im not mistaken, isnt the surgeon general that obama appointed a bit over weight. Im talking about the plump black female whose a physician.

    Also, the health threat in US is cigarette smoking .. or at least that’s what the surgeon general says. I dont understand why Michelle Obama dont attack cigarettes with veracity like she does “over eating”. She needs to start on her own husband bad habits instead of meddling into the lives of others.

  12. samiam60 says:

    WooooooWeeeeeee Doggy, Cavuto done got VF’s dander up. Better watch out Neil, the wrath that comes may not feel very good. Man up Neil and tell your wife it is ok for you to defend Female Politicians like Sarah Palin. Oh and also, you really need to learn to project your voice a little better. Sometimes I have to strain to hear your closing comments also. Other than that Neil, I do like your show 😉

    Democrats’ budget bill: $1.1 trillion; 1,900 pages
    By DAVID ROGERS | 12/14/10 4:03 PM EST Updated: 12/14/10 9:50 PM EST

    Defying the political odds, Senate Democrats rolled out a year-end, governmentwide spending bill Tuesday that cuts more than $26 billion from President Barack Obama’s 2011 requests even as it holds firm to thousands of the appropriations earmarks so adamantly opposed by critics of Congress.

    Filling more than 1,900 pages, the $1.1 trillion measure represents an increase of less than 2 percent in annual spending but makes for an easy target of ridicule — a last stand by the Senate’s old bulls before the tea party takeover. In a scene reminiscent of the movie “Casablanca,” top Republicans expressed shock, shock that there was gambling still in Rick’s Cafe even after their own members have been quietly working to write the bill and gather GOP votes for passage.

    (CNSNews.com) – Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli told CNSNews.com that the federal government will be able to “order” individuals to purchase any product or service if the individual mandate in health care law is determined to be constitutional by the Supreme Court.

    Federal judge Henry Hudson for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled that the individual mandate was unconstitutional on Monday. Cuccinelli predicts that the case will ultimately lie in the hands in the Supreme Court.

  37. James says:

    Voting Female, I think you’re missing the point of Cavuto’s rant. He’s saying that Christie should be judged on his words and accomplishments, not on something as superficial as his appearance. By parenthetically referring to Palin’s appearance you’re also stating that how she looks is relevant to the discussion. Now I personally do think that a politician’s looks are an important factor but I’ll go more into that later.

    You have not however provided one iota of proof that Cavuto favors Christie or any other male politician to Palin or any other female politician because of gender. Yes, he defends Christie and and supposedly doesn’t Palin (you don’t link to the “attack” you mention so I can’t address that) but are you then saying that he’s never defended a woman? You seem to be searching for hypocrisy and gender bias where none exist. If Cavuto has said or done anything blatantly sexist I would listen to any evidence you could provide but as it stands your accusation seems to be wholly without merit.

    Cavuto may not like Palin as much as he does Christie based merely on their respective words and actions, which again is the point of his rant. To give Palin special treatment or protection merely because she’s a woman would go against your stated philosophy of sexual equality. Palin is a big girl. Every criticism (or “attack”, if you will) against her is not always based on sexism, just as every criticism of Obama is not always based on racism.

    Now as to Christie’s weight, I do indeed think that it would prevent him from becoming president. It’s been over one hundred years since Americans have elected a fat man president and I don’t see them starting now. I say this as a fan of Christie’s and knowing full well that it’s unfair but that’s the way things are. I really like Mitch Daniels too but at 5′ 3″ he doesn’t have a chance and anyone who thinks John Bolton could get elected with that moustache is just kidding themselves. Again, I acknowledge that these realities are superficial and stupid but that doesn’t make them any less real. Now some individual comments:

    Palin is beautiful but there are many successful beautiful female politicians so to say that it’s a curse sounds more like an excuse for something else. Do you think that if she were ugly she’d be nearly as popular as she is now? Hardly.

    Bob Mack: Pointing to a politician’s ability to use a firearm is as pointless as pointing to their weight. Most political offices neither require use of firearms nor the ability to run long distances.

    arlenearmy: Yes, her name is Dr. Regina Benjamin. In fact, here’s what Neil Cavuto said about her: “Brilliant, dedicated, experienced and, oh yeah, fat. The President’s pick for Surgeon General is fat. Not a lot fat, but enough fat for my next guest to say fat chance for Dr. Regina Benjamin to even be considered. ”

    This obviously makes him a hypocrite but a sexist, as VF claims? No, I’d say the double standard is more out of partisan politics; Christie is a Republican while Benjamin is a Democrat. Cavuto does work for FOX News after all. And I highly doubt Michelle Obama has ever taken anything other than a negative stance against smoking. Childhood obesity is just the cause she’s decided to take up. You can debate whether it’s a serious problem in this country (I think it is) but to criticize her for caring about it just seems petty.

    AFVET: Same thing I said to BM about gun play; to vote for someone because of that seems fairly unproductive to me but it’s your other point I find laughable. Obama and Palin are both in their late-forties. If Palin is 5′ 4″ then Obama has about ten inches on her, plus he’s a man (and it’s not sexist to say that men are on average bigger, faster and stronger than women). Obama’s been playing steadily his whole life while I doubt that Palin has spent much time on the court since she was young. Speaking of: “She wasn’t a great athlete,” said Donald Teeguarden, Palin’s high school coach. “She wasn’t blessed with exceptional athletic ability.”

    I’m not saying that Obama beating Palin at basketball has anything to do with their political prowess (You seem to be saying this but maybe I’m wrong) but to seriously suggest that she could win that game is again laughable.

    Liberty: “Evil”? Really?

    VF again: I won’t defend Rove but the only thing I know of Barbara Bush saying about Palin is that she’s beautiful and that she should stay in Alaska. You yourself admit that Palin is beautiful and it seems perfectly feasible that Bush doesn’t like Palin for other reasons besides her gender. Again, I think you’re looking for bias where it doesn’t exist.

  39. VotingFemale says:

    Hi James,

    You are most welcome to comment here.

    You have presented a thought out response to this blogpost and I am happy to discuss the points you bring out.

    In fact, it is so well written, and written as a defense of Cavuto, I question whether you are in fact, Neil Cavuto himself or a personal friend or co-worker of Neil’s at Fox News. I am well aware that this blogpost and the accompanying video, which I published on youtube, shows up quite predominately on Google and also on Twitter.

    The key word in the blogpost, as it refers to Neil, is “tacit.”


    1: expressed or carried on without words or speech

    2: implied or indicated (as by an act or by silence) but not actually expressed

    That Neil finds the extreme vulgar personal gender based attacks on Sarah Palin to not merit an editorial defense on the basis of pure minority bias yet vigorously (and rightly so) defends Gov Christie on the basis of the biased Fat Man attack is glaring to me.

    I am not attacking Cavuto for not defending Sarah Palin, rather I am using the contrast of his defense of a fellow fat man to highlight that Neil obviously does not “identify” with conservative women politicians as he has shown the propensity to do with someone like Gov Christie.

    The bias against women is so ingrained and frankly put, sexually rapacious, in human culture that it is mostly invisible to many men. I seek with this blogpost to send a 115 volt jolt to men thus afflicted and women who simply go with the flow.

    You got the jolt at a high enough level to spend the time to think out and write your comment. Thank you, sir.

    Mission plan changes for Enola Gay now include a strategic directive of attacking Liberalism in all of its forms rather than attacks on individual Liberals. Mission plans will change as current events take shape and so individual Liberal attacks will be ordered on an event needed basis only. Liberals need be advised that the Enola Gay is now equipped with Bunker Busters and increased 50 Caliber strafing guns for maximum penetration into areas where the sun don’t shine. That warm burning sensation you feel may just be one determined Veteran taking back his Country and Freedom.

    DRD4 is controlled by dopamine which affects the way the brain deals with emotions, pleasure and pain and can therefore influence personality traits.

    Liberal Gene discovered

  45. samiam60 says:

    The dopamine receptor D4 is a G protein-coupled receptor encoded by the DRD4 gene.[1] As with other dopamine receptor subtypes, the D4 receptor is activated by the neurotransmitter dopamine. It is linked to many neurological and psychiatric conditions including schizophrenia, Parkinsons disease, bipolar disorder, addictive behaviors including sex addiction, and eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating. It has also been linked with novelty seeking and political ideology.[2]

    It is also a target for drugs which treat schizophrenia and Parkinson disease. The D4 receptor is considered to be D2-like in which the activated receptor inhibits the enzyme adenylate cyclase, thereby reducing the intracellular concentration of the second messenger cyclic AMP.[3]

    Hi VF,

    No, I’m not Cavuto. My head isn’t nearly large enough in proportion to my body (Matthews has the same condition) and I don’t work for FOX News (although lord knows I could use the paycheck). I was just watching Cavuto’s show the other day and was curious what other people thought about his little fat guy rant and yes, your post was one of the most prominent in that respect.

    I did notice that you used the word “tacit” in your criticism of Cavuto but your analysis seemed to make a few assumptions that I thought were unwarranted. I would posit again that not every criticism against Palin is an “extreme vulgar personal gender based attack” and that perhaps Cavuto isn’t crazy about her for other reasons besides her gender. I assume his defense of Christie was precipitated not so much because of a mutual chubbiness between himself and Chritie but rather because he admires Christie’s fiscal conservatism and his ability to make the tough calls to right his states economy (as I do as well).

    Say what you will about Palin (and many do, some right and some wrong) but I’d wager that a supposed fiscal conservative like Cavuto identifies more with a governor making unpopular choices in the name of bringing state deficits under control more than he does one who passed out checks to every man, woman and child in her state financed largely by oil money and federal tax dollars. I think Cavuto has been pretty consistent on that score and I don’t think gender plays into his thought process as much as you seem to.

    I do agree with you that sexual bias is ingrained into our culture (along with biases against several other minority groups as well) but I also think that people like yourself who are looking for it so vigorously will also seem to find it where it doesn’t necessarily exist. Saying that it’s mostly invisible to men like myself makes for an easy argument since my lack of vision can be easily and thusly dismissed.

    As to the other minority groups, I don’t hear Cavuto defending Obama (who, agree with his politics or not, has had some pretty awful things said about him) yet I don’t assume that he doesn’t do so because he has a racial or weightist bias (skinny envy?) but rather because he doesn’t agree with the man politically. I’m sure some would argue that this is indeed why Cavuto doesn’t defend Obama but I would also doubt their conclusions as well.

    samiam60: Good morning to you as well. I am in fact conservative on some issues but rather liberal on others, so much so either way that I do not label myself as either easily. In fact, I find the type of blanket condemnations that people like yourself make on both sides of the political aisle detrimental to civility and toxic to the debate but you are of course free to do so. Incidentally, I’ve been called many names by people on both sides of the aisle; bad manners are not endemic to any one political ideology.

    Foxwood: Thatcher was indeed not too easy on the eyes but she was a serious lady with a keen mind and an iron resolve. I disagree with your comparison because frankly, Palin is no Thatcher. Yes, she’s wildly popular and she connects with many people on a visceral level but I think she is more populist than thoughtful, more folksy than determined. If she had spent the last few years boning up on policy rather than exploiting her fame for maximum dollar effect (which I completely understand, incidentally) I’d be more apt to take her seriously but as it stands I just cannot. I think Christie and Daniels, despite their physical disqualifiers for president, would debate fiscal circles around her.

  53. MariaS says:

    VF … very well said. I don’t see many conservative pundits defending Sarah Palin, and we all know that not a single day goes by without those poisonous darts going her way from all sides.
    The only person, that I know of so far, who has vigourously defended Palin is Mark Levin…. and I like him better for that.
