Mad Men, Mitt Romney, and Non-Traditional Occupations. TGIF

Because I couldn't think of a better picture.

I watched only part of the first season of “Mad Men,” before I simply couldn’t take it anymore.  It’s a testament to our times that a show so full of depraved people could be so popular.  In case you haven’t seen it, the entire show is about a bunch of overgrown children running around on their wives.  Needless to say, I was surprised to come across an article seemingly equating Don Draper with a guy whose personal life is about at squeaky clean as they come.  But after reading it though, I understood.  “The Draperizing of Mitt Romney” does a nice job of laying out the culture war that has been created by the left, in the hopes of retaining the White House.

The president’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, has gone further, quipping that the former Massachusetts governor ‘must watch ‘Mad Men’ and think it’s the evening news’ while jabbing that Romney’s views are out of a time when ‘bosses could dictate on women’s health.’

Ha, that David Axelrod, what a card.  His concluding statement, of course, is a reference to the president’s healthcare plan which forces Catholic employers to provide free contraception to their employees, despite their belief that contraception is a sin.  Obviously, the statement about bosses dictating women’s health is complete nonsense, since no one is telling any woman that she can’t use contraception, but Axelrod’s never been known for getting the punchline right.
The article harkens back to yesterday’s kerfluffle about Ann Romney never working a day in her life.  The point wasn’t really that Mrs. Romney had never actually worked a day in her life, it was that she was unable to understand the problems a modern woman must face.  Other feminists agree.

‘I simply have not seen her in any way as an advocate for women’s empowerment in society,’ said Kim Gandy, the former head of the National Organization for Women, of Ann Romney before Rosen’s comments. ‘And since Gov. Romney looks to her to find out what women care about, that does not bode well. I haven’t heard her speaking out about increasing women’s opportunity for higher paid employment, for women in non-traditional occupations, specifically for increasing pay equity for women, closing the pay gap, certainly not on women’s reproductive rights.’

Well, you probably haven’t heard her talking about these things because they’re made up issues.  Seriously, what’s a “non-traditional occupation?”  Kicker for a NFL team?  Is a wet-nurse a “non-traditional occupation,” because I’ve been looking to break into that market for a while.  And gender pay-gap?  There is no gender pay-gap if you actually compare apples to apples.  In other words, women who haven’t left work at some point to have children or take up mud wrestling are actually earning more than men at the same job.  And this fact doesn’t take into account another fact: the federal government shouldn’t be telling any private company how much they should be paying anyone.  The only other issue referenced is “reproductive rights.”  As indicated above, there is no “contraception issue.”  It’s completely made up.  And Ann Romney isn’t the first woman to be pro-life.  So get a grip.

Despite their consisting of entirely manufactured outrage, the culture wars will continue to be waged at all costs by the left.   Without being able to misdirect the attention of half of the population, the president might have to run on his record, which would be bad for him.  In other words, Barry’s presidency has been a nuclear holocaust to the economy, and he now has to run against a guy that has been a successful business man his entire life.  So what do they do?  Attack a guy who has an impeccable personal life, and accuse him of being a misogynist.  And while they’re at it, they’ll ridicule his “Suzy homemaker” wife who has done nothing with her life other than be faithful and raise five boys who aren’t guests on “Jersey Shore.” Oh yeah, and surviving breast cancer and living with MS.  Apparently the only way to  get any street-cred now days with the feminist left is to have at least one kid be a coked-up transvestite, who’s the product of a failed late-term abortion.  I am woman, hear me roar indeed.
