A conversation with Annette Meeks, a Minnesotan with connections.
"Michele deserves credit: She put together an organization from the ground up." Yes, indeed she did. Several times, as I recall.
What now for women? The feminist movement has thoroughly been exposed as fraudulent. It cares nothing about women and everything about liberal ideology.
I was hoping to sink my teeth into something substantial concerning the future of women in politics. Unfortunately, this piece was lacking in both substance and any hint of what that future may be. Women in politics have been set back 10 years by the campaigns of media darlings Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. We were doing just fine until they showed up with their ineptitude, waving the Mom-flag as if giving birth qualifies them for higher office.
That Linda Holub lady in Sioux Falls has to be one of the dumbest self proclaimed feminist I've ever heard. When asked why she switched her vote from Bachmann to Santorum - "I talked to a lot of my Christian friends, and they thought Michele couldn't win because she's a woman. For whatever reason, a man is more acceptable to more people. As an assertive woman I don't like that one bit, but that's the way it is." So basically her friends are sexists, so she's going to be sexist as well!? Women voting for the male candiate because men won't vote for the woman candidate is exactly how you never get a women candidate to win. The only thing I can say, is that this lady belongs in the GOP..
Wearing a skirt,or pantsuit, mouthing the same anti-woman garbage as Conservative men, is certainly not going to be supported by this liberal woman.....or any others . Feminists, my foot.....
