Sarah Palin Claims Feminism for Conservative Women

Speaking before the National Rifle Association, Palin read her hand: ‘I am the NRA’Sarah Palin is determined to recast feminism as a pro-choice agenda. Palin spoke at a breakfast gathering of the Susan B. Anthony List in downtown Washington on Friday, Palin urged more than 500 audience members to back only those candidates for public office who are uncompromisingly opposed to abortion.

Palin praised the group as “mama grizzlies”. “The mama grizzlies, they rise up,” she said, to laughter. “You thought pit bulls are tough. You don’t want to mess with the mama grizzlies. And I think there are a whole lot of those in this room.” via Washington Post

Schapiro-Bair-Warren | The Tombstone Trio Arrives In Wall Street

There’s more high-level estrogen floating around this week than we can handle. Reading this week’s TIME cover story Shapiro, Bair, and Warren: Female Sheriffs of Wall Street, we also note that Washington state governor Chris Gregoire has joined the list of candidates to fill Elena Kagan’s job as Solicitor General, assuming that Kagan is confirmed.

Get me plush chair to sit down in and maybe fan myself. No, I’m not having a hot flash.

Lurking around Forbes, the WSJ, Fortune, Bloomberg, we note that the common response to ‘the boys club created this financial mess all by themselves” is that women behave by the same testosterone-infused principles when they’re running things.

Always the boys drag out Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher to make their case. On occasion Queen Elizabeth I is also dredged up as proof that women are just as power-hungry and corrupt as men.

Rachel Maddow's Blistering Verbal Spanking of George Rekers

Updated on Wed, June 9, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

george rekers lucien gay scandal

Trust me when I write that Dr. George Rekers, a Christian anti-gay leader has welts on his bottom, if he’s listened to Rachel Maddow weight in on his seedy trip away for 10-days with bought boy-toy Lucien. Rekers denies the trip was unsavoury in any way. Rather he was on a mission of mercy.

We’re tracking the unfortunate, gaining momentum story of the co-founder of the Family Research Council and his companion procured from

My backbone bristles yet again, reading the details of the credentialed George Rekers’ public statements on homosexuality, family values and good parenting.

Like so many other citizens of the world in every culture and religion, I’ve come to the conclusion that he — and occasionally she — who protests so much about morality issues is almost always the ones ‘with the problem’.

Struggling with their own sensual urges, and some that are outside the norm, the morality police deride their own sensations and clamp down on the rest of us, assuming that we, too, are dominated by unbridled salacious desires.

Note that my comments don’t apply to any sensual subject that involves children, except to suggest that those who scream the loudest about child pics on the Internet should probably check in with their own psychiatrists at once.

We already know that Conservatives and highly Biblical states are the largest consumers of erotic material on the Internet. Are they also the biggest homophobes?

Reading the details of Father Marcial Maciel’s The Legionaries of Christ, a man who was a dictator in governing the sensuality of everyone around him, yet flaunted every rule of the Catholic Church including having children out of wedlock, I think of all the people he made sick and miserable before finally being taken out of business by the Vatican.

It very difficult challenging someone who is the darling of Pope John II. George Rekers, too, surrounds himself with high-minded propriety and lofty condemnation of the rest of us. Rekers regularly testifies before Congress on family issues, and as Rachel Maddow tells us in her blistering bruising of George Rekers’s bottom, he recently sent a letter on children and homosexuality to every school in America.

While Dr. George Rekers denies that Lucien administered sexual massages ‘below the belt’ as he told the Miami newspapers, and Rekers insists that he was only trying to ‘cure’ Lucien in their time away together, his words ring very hollow especially after a second male escort has come forward to Gawker, claiming that he was paid by Rekers for light touching. (Read end of article update.)

One of the reasons the northern Europeans especially — but Europeans in general — find the Americans so hypocritical is that in measure after measure, they have fewer social problems than we do.

Scandinavia and 'Down Under' Are Commie Feminists

Save the Children has released its annual “Mothers Index”, putting Norway at the top of the rankings as the best country for being a mom. As expected the US falls low on the list, even below Greece, which is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.

OK, that’s not fair of me. The Wall Street guys will say: “See, that’s what happens when we try to create benefits for women in a country. The damn socialists bankrupt the nation!”

It’s true. There is some merit to the argument that societies pay a cost for making motherhood a priority.

'Everyday Rapture' Joins the Culture Wars

Big media is competing for the hearts and minds of New Yorkers these days, with the Wall Street Journal rolling an edition just for us. The totally different reviews of Sherie Rene Scott’s ‘Everyday Rapture’ by the WSJ and NYTimes suggest that the battle could get interesting, honing in on core values in the American culture wars, where the battle is frequently over women, values, homosexuality, patriarchy.

everyday rapture sparks values debate

Writing for WSJ, drama critic Terry Teachout says:

The attractions of “Everyday Rapture” can be summed up in nine words: Ms. Scott is beautiful, sexy and a terrific singer. I loved her in “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” and had I seen this show in a cabaret—minus the talk—I might have enjoyed it. Had I paid $116.50 to see it in a Broadway theater, on the other hand, I’d have gone home fuming—not because Ms. Scott sings less well or looks less fetching in front of an audience of 740, but because she has nothing to say that’s worth hearing and spends 90 minutes saying it. via WSJ

In the NYTimes corner, Ben Brantley writes:

Just as the Broadway theater season is drawing to its close, a smashing little show has arrived to remind us of why so many of us keep going back to Broadway, even though it’s broken our heart so many times.

Jenny Sanford Finds Life, Perhaps Romance, After Divorce

Updated on Sat, September 11, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

Former first lady Jenny Sanford poses for a photograph with, from right, Bradley Lindler, Anna Louise Lindler and Orie Lindler during the annual First Lady’s Easter Egg hunt in Columbia, S.C. on Monday, March 22, 2010. Writing now about Martha Stewart’s brief career as a fashion model — and at Chanel, no less — we stumbled on a gem about Jenny Sanford, formerly married to South Carolina governor Mark Sanford. Gov Sanford is expected to be charged criminally tomorrow, resulting from a State Ethics Committee investigation of his actions in his Argentianian disappearing act with a woman later identified as his lover in June 2009. 

Our focus in the original Jenny post was her circumspect nature — and her restrained dignity — in dealing with those events.Clearly, Jenny Sanford is an American original, continuing to fulfill certain First Lady duties for the state of South Carolina, even though she is now divorced from the governor.

In our tabloid, let-it-all-hang-out American, poor-me culture, Jenny Sanford was honest, realistic and dignified in the face of extreme personal pain and heartbreak. Unlike Silda Spitzer, she did not say “the woman is supposed to take care of the sex”, assuming personal responsibility for her husband’s actions.
