The Witch, the Bitch & the Whore
NSFW: The left is far more comfortable with man-hating Lesbians
than with powerful women who aren't bunkered in dark cul de sacs.
ELECTION-EAR-ING. This is an election season so rich in ironies that it's impossible to back far enough away from it to see it whole. The first irony is that the nature of election coverage is such that it's so myopic, so microscopic in its perspectives on all sides, that the real Big Picture is generally treated as a sidebar, a statistic, or an anomaly.
[I have a choice here I don't like: 1) Prove my assertions with tons of available links that will keep you reading and chuckling for days, or 2) Be timely and trust that my allusions to Internet content past will strike useful chords in your memories. I'm choosing the latter because the election is tomorrow.]
Herewith, a variety of additional ironies:
(1) The Democrats have gone way out of their way to marginalize three particular candidates -- all of them women -- who symbolize for them everything wrong with the reactionary anti-Obama Tea Party sentiment which represents such a threat to their vision of social justicesocialist egalitarianism in these BlightedUnited States of America: Christine O'Donnell (deemed The Witch by 'liberal' Bill Maher based on tongue-in-cheek footage from his own ancient, comedic TV archives); Sharron Angle (damned as "that Bitch" by feminist CNN host Joy Behar and tacitly seconded by journalist icon Baba Wawa); and Meg Whitman (slurred as a Whore by unrepentant, unidentified staffers of ancient hippy 'Governor Moonbeam,' a.k.a. the bald clueless prune Jerry "I have no Plan" Brown, endorsed within hours of the slur by the 'feminist' advocacy group NOW.)
Here's the irony. The electoral races of these three slandered women are the ones to watch Tuesday night as a barometer of how the election is going to go. O'Donnell is supposed to be a total no-show with voters. But if she's close -- within five points -- in the tiny, quickly counted state of Delaware tomorrow, she could be the first indication of disaster for Democrats. Watch that race. There won't be a lot of suspense in the middle of the country. Dems are in deep trouble all across the heartland. But things will start to get interesting again in the far west, which will be the difference between a clear victory and a massacre. If Sharron Angle defeats Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, it will be an historic first -- a total unknown prevailing against one of the three or four most powerful politicians in the country. Then, if Meg Whitman wins against Jerry Brown, we'll know:
Know what? That women have finally come of age as voters, citizens, and actors on the national stage. As better than half the population, they're no longer content to be a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party agenda, either meekly submissive to party doctrine or subject to being stoned to death as heretical adulteresses. As tough enough to withstand the sexual molestation that constitutes the liberal approach to securing their support.
(2) The elephant in the room in this election (pun intended, correctly, as opposed to Obama's cowardly malaprop on the Daily Show), is Sarah Palin. So-called Republican leadership can vilify and patronize her all it wants, but if there's a significant Republican victory this cycle, it's her doing more than anyone else's. Let me count the ways. Whether or not she will be or should be a candidate for president, she has restored the role of the citizen in the political process. To understand her political genius (yes, I mean that usage), you have to be a student of Roman history. When the Roman Senate became too arrogant and unresponsive, the position of 'Tribune' was created. The role of the Tribune was to speak up for the common man and call a halt when Patrician interests threatened to carry the day. Palin has become the American Tribune. She is proudly plebeian (no Harvard, no Yale), but it was her Facebook entries and tweets that galvanized and led the Tea Party opposition to Obama.
The most memorable phrase of the entire healthcare debate came from this supposedly illiterate Alaska fool: "death panels." The seat of the Tribune was in the doorway of the Roman Senate. Which is where Palin has sat in all the discussions of Obama policy. At every turn, her plebeian objections have confounded Obama's caesarian ambitions. He would rule us and lecture us and sneer at us from his elected messianic throne. She resigned her elective office -- against the advice of absolutely everyone, including me -- to rise higher than the president, as an uncompromised ombudsman for the American people. Idiot? Hardly.
(3) Sarah Palin. Why is this a separate entry? Isn't it just a continuation of the last? No. Because she's winning. The mid-terms, if you really want to understand them, have been a contest between the most powerful, charismatic, and supposedly most intelligent and eloquent man in the world, Barack Obama, and Sarah Palin. She. Is. Kicking. His. Ass. Think about it. Her crowds swell. His decline. Yesterday, he spoke to a half empty auditorium in Cleveland while she was crushing Chris Wallace in an argument about $4 trillion that was probably responsible (far more than her brief hospitalization) for Hewlett-Packard CEO and Stanford grad Carly Fiorina's momentary slip in the polls.
Best moment: Wallace framing his specious $4 trillion argument and getting interrupted by Palin: "Let me finish my question," said Wallace. "Hurry up, then," said Palin. "I have a lot to say." Then she demolished his tired, ignorant $4 trillion argument as a figment of liberal imagination, and Chris Wallace did not attempt to follow up. Could she have been more eloquent? Yes. Was her argument as elegant as PA senate candidate Pat Toomey's (perfect) the week before? No. Might her argument resonate better with voters than Harvard grad Toomey's? Yes. Hers had the ring of, "Don't be an ass." Which is what this woman has done. She's gone toe-to-toe with every major power in the establishment -- whatever you think of her missteps as a tyro in the 2008 presidential campaign -- and she's come up a winner with her endorsements, her tweets, and her ability to set the latches for the national debate.
What's the Big Picture? We've been watching a heavyweight fight between the President of the United States and the defeated vice presidential candidate of the 2008 election. And she's about to deck him with a cheery smile as a walk-on amateur in a field dominated by oh-so-serious pros. She's about to win by a knockout in an arena where the MSM judges are determined to award every round on points to the opposition. I confess I don't want her to run for president. I want her to remain in her role as American Tribune. We need a fearless, independent person who isn't afraid or constrained from saying,"This ISN'T what we elected you to do. You're toast." What a Mama Grizzly can do. Oh. The irony? She's the ultimate feminist dream. She didn't ask anyone's permission. She's just reinvented American politics in a purely spontaneous, creative and assertive act no man would ever have thought of. And the 'feminists' hate her. Why? Because an unofficial woman has just kayoed the officially ordained 'man' all real woman are supposed to want.
(4) Men. Sad. Who is it exactly who's inspired by Obama's man boobs? And by his hulking, glowering wife? She went to Princeton, which is an insult she seemingly can't ever get over. (I understand that part, at least.) Politics aside, the definition of an Obama supporter, a Democrat in the current cycle, is someone who admires homosexuality, hates the Pax Americana of the last 65 years, and, well, hates America's entire heritage of competing, winning, losing, and sacrificing for the benefit of those who are to come. When the men subside, the women come to the fore, an endless list of them, because what women want most of all is men in some regard. Why we have Michelle Bachman, Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter (who's espoused repealing women's right to vote), and all the female Tea Party candidates. Irony? They're the uniquely percipient women who know that they're NOT men -- not Shakespeare, Einstein, Joyce, da Vinci, Lincoln, Mozart, Socrates, Picasso, or Rimbaud. But when their men go missing, they're willing to fill in the absent spine. Where we are as a nation.
(5) Women. Less sad than they were. When it comes to government, all women are anatomically challenged and it's why men never wanted to give them the vote. Intellectually, the men were right. Anatomically, men wanted to achieve, to make a mark, to spawn a legacy of their own. What did women want? To protect their own. To nurture, to suckle their own. Different anatomies gave rise to different theories of governance. Men wanted to inseminate the dog eat dog world of commerce with daring and originality. They taught their sons how to compete, how to win, how to conquer. Theirs was the philosophy of the erect cock: impregnate the universe with your ideas and ambitions. Women got the vote in 1920. It's all been downhill since then. Their governmental metaphor was also derived from their bodies: Suck from my breast and all will be well. And the proper role of government is as breast. Irony? The breast metaphor doesn't work. The kid who never gets off his mommy's teat never amounts to anything. Which is the history of the entire Democrat Party since FDR.
(6) Bottom Line. This election is not really about politics. It's about life itself. Should the government be a remote Old Testament dad or a whining "I'll do anything to protect you" mom? Let us make our own mistakes and lash us when we fail, or snoop into absolutely everything we do, pass judgment on every decision, and make us pay for every deviation from perfect childhood as Mommy defines it? Michelle can't wait. She wants to be your cold, Victorian mommy, with a government-paid wet nurse. Unless you don''t deserve the government nipple. You have so much to be punished for. Because of who your parents are. And she's just the one to make you sit in the corner forever.
If you want a mommy, stay home tomorrow. Because I can guaran-fucking-tee you that an angry mommy is what you'll get if you vote for Obama yet again..
Me? I can assure you I'd rather have the freedom of the non-mommies of a witch, a bitch, and a whore. I still like women. No matter how cold or hot or wild they are.
I'm pretty sure 'Mommy' is a lefty idea. Why I'm still going wild... and loving the thought of tomorrow.
Be sure to vote. Unless your mommy refuses to let you...
