Welcome back to the favorite site of Independent Voters, Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that is truly nonpartisan in its criticism of the shrill children called Liberals and Conservatives.
The rest of us in the United States (aka “adults” ) get a lot of laughs out of the way Liberals and Conservatives think they’re fit to define womanhood and dictate how ALL women should lead their lives.
Anyone with common sense, which of course leaves Liberals and Conservatives out, realizes women are individuals and there is no “one size fits all” model they all have to live their lives by. However, Liberals and Conservatives cheapen and politicize everything they come into contact with and they’ve transformed what should be a period of unrivaled freedom for women into just another of their tiresome partisan battlefields.
Since Balladeer’s Blog loves to tweak both American Liberals and American Conservatives here’s a shoutout of praise to two women whose mere NAMES cause left-wing and right- wing fanatics to froth at the mouth with impotent outrage.
SARAH PALIN – As surely as women like Betty Friedan were symbols of women bravely throwing off the yoke of the male-enforced attitude that all women should just marry and raise children, Sarah Palin is a heroic symbol of women throwing off the yoke of the Liberal fanatic- enforced attitude that all women should mindlessly embrace the Democratic Party’s every command. Palin became an overnight sensation in a country where reasonable people (again, that excludes Liberals and Conservatives) were disgusted with the shrill voices of the American Left claiming all women everywhere were mindless zombies with only one set of political opinions.
The bitter, hate-filled and unquestioningly obedient Democratic Party shills like Gloria Steinem and others just made Sarah Palin more and more popular the more they launched pointlessly cruel attacks at her. Steinem and company felt that if they lived THEIR lives as lackeys of the Democratic Party machine that should be the way every other woman should be forced to live their lives, regardless of their individual opinions. The ridiculous expression “traitor to her gender group” has been thrown around more in the last four years than ever before – probably because more and more women like Palin rebel against the offensive and sexist attitude that a political party can “own” women.
HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON – As surely as Eleanor Roosevelt was a role model for a generation of women, Clinton became a role model for another generation who saw in the heroic First Lady a charismatic and talented woman who often overshadowed her presidential spouse. During Hillary’s eight years in the White House she gave fits to the Republican Party matriarchs like Phyllis Schlafly who wanted women to stay trapped in the “kitchen and nursery” prison of the Eisenhower years and earlier. Clinton even baked cookies in one memorable moment to tweak the laughable, aging stereotypes of the old guard Republican women, who felt that wives with careers were “destroying the American family.”
Hillary went on to shine in the Senate and then as Secretary of State even though she is stuck in the Presidential administration of an inept, weak and crooked little man whose abilities are dwarfed by her own. It’s no secret Clinton would have made a much more competent and effective president than Barack Obama and the United States would have been spared the catastrophes of the last four years. Unfortunately the country wasn’t ready yet for a female president and instead went with another clueless and shallow male more interested in their own aggrandizement than in leading the nation. President Hillary Clinton would have also treated history to the first husband and wife team to serve as U.S. Presidents and as an added bonus would have driven wackos like Rush Limbaugh crazy!
I would love to see the day when we have at least two women running against each other for the presidency. If that day ever arrives the nation will surely note that it’s a milestone that could not have been reached without courageous and capable pioneers like the extraordinary Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton! Any young woman would do well to take either one of them as a role model.
