BACHMANN: Also with women politicians, they want to make sure no women, no woman becomes president before a Democrat woman, and so they're doing everything they can to, I think, sabotage women like Sarah Palin, perhaps women like myself, or similarly situated women, to make sure that we don't have a prominent national voice. But the thing is, the people in our country, they don't care who the voice is, they just want someone, they want to know that someone is speaking out for them against what will certainly bring about the destruction of our great country if we continue to go down the Obama path.
Sarah. Michele. Let's get something straight, once and for all.
It's not because you're women. It's because you're idiots.
Republicans are no friends to women. They don't support health care for women. They don't support equal pay for women. They don't like single mothers (even fictional TV character single mothers.)
They don't like feminists -- or feminazis, as the de facto leader of the party calls them.
Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh defended his past use of the term "feminazi," calling it "right" and "accurate." Limbaugh's comments came in response to a June 22 Washington Post article on Sen. Richard J. Durbin's (D-IL) controversial floor statement that referenced Nazis. The Post article mentioned Limbaugh's use of the term "feminazi" as well as other examples of recent political debates in which Nazism has been invoked.
I haven't used that term on this program in years. But it still gets to 'em, doesn't it? And you know why? [chuckles] Because it's right. Because it's accurate. [laughs] And I'm not going to apologize, but I will apologize if it hurts your feelings. But you know what? I think if you're offended, it's your problem. It's not mine.
They even write school papers about the evils of feminism.
McDonnell's thesis, which was written when he was 34, depicts feminism as an enemy to the traditional family; says government policy should benefit married couples over "cohabitators, homosexuals, or fornicators"; and criticizes a Supreme Court decision establishing a legal right to contraception for unmarried couples.
Yes, these men are pigs. But you know what? Republican women are no better.
COULTER: If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.
And Ms. Bachmann, of course, is also no friend to women.
"That’s why people need to continue to go to the town halls, continue to melt the phone lines of their liberal members of Congress, and let them know, under no certain circumstances will I give the government control over my body and my health care decisions."
Yeah, sure that sounds friendly. Except she's talking about not letting the evil Obama and the evil Democrats do evil stuff to her body by, you know, providing affordable health care to Americans.
She's not talking about stopping the government from making health care decisions for women. No, that's still wrong. Because reproductive health care is bad.
"The Obama adminstration is radical on the issue of abortion. President Obama has said the reproductive care is essential health care," said Bachmann. "Will this now mean that we mandate that new abortion clinics would have to be built all across America?"
See, the thing is, you don't get to call yourself a feminist martyr because people criticize what you have to say. In fact, complaining about how hard it is for women in politics is, in the words of Ms. Palin, quite, ya know, bad for women. Also.
Palin was asked about coverage of Clinton at a Newsweek forum, and said: 'Fair or unfair, I think she does herself a disservice to even mention it, really. I mean, you gotta plough through that.
You have to know what you're getting into. When I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism, or you know maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, "That doesn't do us any good - women in politics".
Ah, but when Republican women whine about their perceived persecution, it's this whole other thing. After all, everyone knows how the "Democrat party" hates women in politics. You can tell because of the 17 women in the Senate, only 13 of them are Democrats:
Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Kay Hagan (D-NC)
Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX)
Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
Mary Landrieu (D-LA)
Blanche Lincoln (D-AR)
Claire McCaskill (D-MO)
Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Patty Murray (D-WA)
Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)
Olympia Snowe (R-ME)
Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
And who again is the Speaker of the House? Whose "prominent national voice" is second in line to the presidency?
Oh yeah. A woman.
Of course it would never occur to Ms. Bachmann that the reason we make fun of her has nothing to do with being a woman and everything to do with being an idiot. The kind of idiot who asks us to slit our wrists in a death pact to fight against death panels. The kind of idiot who think the swine flu is a Democrat party conspiracy because the last round of swine flu happened under a Democratic president. (Yes, that's right, Michele. Because Gerald Ford was a Democrat.)
It's the kind of stupid we mock and deride even when it comes from the men of your party. Like when Glenn Beck tries to spell "oligarchy." It's not because he's a man. It's because he's a moron and we can spell. Maybe because our parents didn't yank us out of school in a futile protest against, I don't know, learning and stuff.
Do you see? Can you possibly get it?
We don't hate you because you're women. We hate you because you're idiots.
