Sarah Palin’s latest word salad is even more incoherent and ranty than usual — a monumental wall of authentic wingnut gibberish. That nasty Obama guy is oppressing her again by suggesting women should have access to cheaper, better day care.
(Do I even have to tell you that the Obama quote that launched her into this confused tirade is completely out of context and deceptive?)
Obama Declares Stay-at-Home Moms Aren’t Worth a Hill of Beans; Says It’s a Choice ‘We Don’t Want Americans to Make’
Well that just takes the cake. Sure, Obama’s latest shot across the bow in his own “War on Women” is easily deflected by women like my friends and me testifying to the most precious, irreplaceable seasons of our lives when we were BLESSED to be “stay-at-home moms” (though I don’t remember any of us actually “staying home” in those busiest times of our children’s lives), but Friday’s jab deserves something right back nonetheless. On behalf of former and current stay-at-homers, including my girlfriends who still get together to bake cookies for the bake sale (see photos in my kitchen above), and volunteer to coach kids ball teams, and man the church’s food bank, and entertain latchkey kids, and all that other obnoxiously “housewifey” stuff, the President needs to be spanked.
Barack, do you not know any stay-at-home moms? Are you and Michelle so disconnected from the real world that you think women will accept your intolerant view that we should not have a choice in how we wish to live our lives? You have a way of arrogantly demanding that we fall in line with your sad opinion of today’s American woman. It seems you’d shackle us by your snobbish shunning of one traditional lifestyle choice while taking advantage of power to manifest your liberal view by manipulating public opinion and resources to diminish moms who put career on hold to raise a family. You are really messed up. And you’re so 1960’s.
Yes, the 60’s are calling and they want their ardent yet narrow sexist confines back. See, you just set the women’s movement back a few decades, and I think it’s hilarious because for being the smartest man in the room, you ain’t too smart.
Whoa, Nellie! Caribou Barbie’s on a tear! And it continues in this vein of rich idiocy for five more interminable paragraphs.
Thanks, John McCain.
