Gloria Steinem Sets the Stage for Whinners
Gloria Steinem must be from another galaxy. Certainly, she seems fossilized in the war of her generation and unaware of the world around her now. If there is one woman who is out of touch with the average American woman, it is Gloria Steinem. The war she fights has been over for years. The average American woman has long understood that Steinem and her gang fail to appreciate women who, by choice, serve a traditional role in the family. Further, they cannot tolerate a successful career woman who disagrees with them.
Steinem`s essay, Palin: wrong woman, wrong message, "* is a disjointed tirade which seems to disqualify Gov. Palin simply on the basis that Palin dares to stand against everything for which Steinem stands. In the words of Obama, Steinem must think women are stupid.
Nevertheless, back on planet Earth, Steinem should remember that we have long lived in a country where each person has one vote. To perpetuate the myth that the White House is somehow hijacked by Republicans, or Democrats, for that matter, is irresponsible. When far-left-wing liberals are defeated, they always cry foul " and make the case that they were robbed. Liberals seem to be constantly belly aching-- even when they are running the country.
Democrats cannot govern because they have yet to learn that one, not even their One, " can be all things to all people. Character does matter; track record does matter; and, the majority still rules in America. Losers should refrain from rewriting history, especially when, now more than ever, the whole world is watching.
Perhaps the crowning cackle in Steinem essay comes at the very end of her rant. Apparently exhausted from having vented her venom, Steinem sums up her argument by encapsulating the Obama-Biden ticket with this curious statement:
"Barack Obama and Joe Biden are campaigning on their belief that men should be, can be and want to be at home for their children. This could be huge."
What a crock!
I`m Nancy Lee Wolfe and I approve this message.
