Note to my wife: Your life is easy and you should never talk about things that don’t involve baby-making and bon-bons. **UPDATE** Libs respond
If I ever said this, my wife would kill me. And by “kill,” I mean make me stay home with my kids for a week. The following is HILARIOUS. Not because it’s a woman saying it, but because it’s an Obama advisor, lefty woman saying it. After all, nothing irritates the feminists like a conservative stay-at-home mom. The fun starts around the 50 second mark:
Note to my wife: stop your yapping. You don’t ever have to worry about anything. You just sit around, eat your bon bons, and look pretty. This little blurb is yet another reminder of the set-in-stone fact that no one is more intolerant of those who don’t agree with them then liberals. It’s not like I go around blaming all the world’s problems on the latch-key kid whose parents are too important to have someone at home when the little deviant returns from school with his sixteen year old girlfriend and a couple of cans of Old Style that his buddy Johnny lifted from his old man.
And of course, all of this came after Barry explained to the world on Friday why his wife, Michelle “give me that Happy Meal” Obama, had to work while having two daughters at home.
‘Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling,’ he said. ‘And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work.’
Hey, I’ve heard this line before. People say this to me in a condescending way about all the money I must have, since my wife gets to stay at home with the fruit of my prodigious loins. In other words, Barry’s trying to tell you that he’s just one of the guys. A middle class, beer-drinkin’, blue-collar schmo, who didn’t have the money to keep a parent home. After all, the happy couple was only earning just south of half a million dollars per year at the time.
What’s the point about all of this? Is it that stay-at-home mom’s are good? Or that feminists are evil, blood-sucking, harpies? No, although both points are entirely accurate. It’s about the fact that, despite the conventional wisdom, the Dems aren’t “pro-women” or “pro-black” or “pro-gay.” If you don’t fit into their value system, you’re attacked. And their value-system for women isn’t being “barefoot and pregnant” at home. It’s making damn sure that mom is at work, trying to put her boss’s testicles in a box, while Timmy is knocking up his girlfriend on his Transformers sheets.
It seems the left realizes the problem here. So what does it do? It argues that the right is attacking the moron in the video above because she’s a lesbian. Seriously. And they just make it worse for themselves.
No one is arguing that raising children isn’t work. Democratic strategist and CAP Action board member Hilary Rosen is a single mother of twins who had to go through the expensive and challenging process of adoption with her then partner Elizabeth Birch. Now, she’s trying to stick up for other mothers who don’t have the luxury of millionaire husbands to help fund their child-rearing duties, and the backlash is getting ugly.
Granted, this isn’t the mainstream left responding here. It’s the crazy “Think Progress” fringe. Still, the fact that the author is a lunatic doesn’t justify dishonesty, right? The lady in the video wasn’t trying to “stick up for mothers” who have to work. She was degrading Ann Romney for having the nerve to talk to her husband about the economy when all she’s apparently qualified to do is paint her nails and yell at the lawn boy. No one is attacking the bimbo because she’s a lesbian; they’re attacking her because she’s everything that’s wrong with the left. Personally, I hope more Dems come to her defense because it will keep the issue in the news longer.
