Why Are The Republican Female Stars So Awful?

Christine_O'Donnell_2010.jpg

The men are no prize, either, I know, but it seems like whenever the Repub ladies grab the spotlight, the things they say and do are so extra-embarrassing they set back the cause of women by centuries.

For years, Sarah Palin humiliated herself with bad, self-serving decisions, dumb pronouncements, and hypocrisy, creating what I was sure was the high watermark of Republican idiocy.

But then came Michele Bachmann, with her twisted viewpoints and loony husband, and suddenly Palin didn't seem quite as bad (if still perfectly ghastly, mind you).

Well, even Bachmann's been topped, as it were.

Last week, witchy Christine O'Donnell walked off a TV show because she couldn't figure out how gay marriage was a relevant topic to discuss -- and by the way, she spent more time sputtering about how she wouldn't address it than it would have taken to do so -- convincing me that this party feels so lowly about women that it only fosters the dummos.

(By the way, could it be possible that O'Donnell wouldn't talk about gay marriage because she hasn't read her book so she doesn't really know what it says about it?)

Anyway, it's sad that these three harpies are bringing out the misogyny in everyone and making everyone head back to the testosterone.

At least we Democrats have Hillary -- and she has a foxy new hairdo, by the way.

Well, at least the Republican has Ron Paul. His ideas maybe out of the ordinary, but he is challenging the status quo. He is logical, intelligent, and reasonable. For the female side, well... there is Condoleezza Rice. She is pretty smart. Wish she was running for 2012. At least, she can show what an intelligent woman is. And she won't try to be cute and wink at you for points.

Awful? Maybe to the virility-challenged & the forlornly frumpy. Charming Christine is classy & clean. Sensational Sarah is lithe & lean. Michele belongs on the silver screen. These are gorgeous, gracious, gifted ladies.

It cracks me up when people knock the R's as crazy when the D's are only better rhetorically...and they would sell out their "Base" in a heartbeat...Gays,Women,Working People...Hell,ALL citizens of this country should realise by now that there is one Party running this country and we're screwed whichever wing is in power...

don't forget all of the GOP women on Fox Noise: Megyn Kelly, Greta Man Sustern, Laura Ingrate, and Mann Coulter.

Easy -- it's the Stepford Wives let loose.  The Stepford Men's Club forgot to upgrade their bots to Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion/Lyin' -- no difference, see?)

Michael, is this Tarzie person a repug housewife with a caffine problem, or what?

You make the point.   There is NOT a conspiracy against "conservative" Republican women, but these are poor women to represent them.   ANY idiot who made such dumb statements and errors would be the butt of many jokes, but most idiots are smart enough to back out after a period.  It's like these three are too dumb to realize it (see this:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D... ).   The only person as far off was Alvin Greene ("fix SC economy by making action figures of me"), but Alvin wasn't pretending to be someone he's not - these ditzes think they're above all others.   My sympathy to intelligent women for being of the same gender.

I agree. All she had to do was answer the question and it would have been over. All three of these women scare me, esp Michelle Bachmann, she has this crazed look about her. O'Donnell is just stupid, and Palin, well what can one say.

I have to admit, I'm a dyed in the wool democrat but Nancy Pelosi makes me cringe.  But NOTHING compares to Bachman and her husband.  Best political sideshow in decades.  And so "up to the minute."  Straight woman married to dubious ex-gay counselor, fills up house with 600 female (not MALE) foster kids (too tempting perhaps), precluding intimacy and communication (unless it's about those 600 foster kids).  All this "Gays are Satanic" bullpucky isn't playing to the masses like it used to.  Unless you live in Uganda.

You're the moron. So if a party has a handful of prominent women, then it can't hate women?? You're retarded.

"At least we Democrats have Hillary--and she has a foxy new hairdo, by the way."

Oh good God. Would that be the same Hillary who told the Advocate she supported the Defense of Marriage Act less equivocally than her husband and reiterated her opposition to gay marriage in the Advocate in January of this year? The one who supports the Patriot Act and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?

I never understood why this sociopath would show at our parades and get applause. I booed til I was hoarse.

Good God, Musto, get your head out of your ass or at least stop coaching your readers into how to keep their head in theirs.

 Michael when you said.."Harpie's" I it made me laugh out loud for 10 minutes .

To me, Bachmann is the scariest because she's actually angling for power. And you're right, she makes Palin look good by comparison. The Repugs obviously hate women if these are their most prominent examples.

I know you're joking, Stoneyjack, or you're stoned!  Or...don't know jack!  Pee-yuke!  These 3 could stand around the caldron and stir...stir...stir...

Applause. One more non-stupid person joins the fray.

'Would sell out their base'? Would??? Have, darling, have.

But no matter. They have such spiffin' hairdos and they're all so not really terribly stupid.

Tarzie
Tarzie

Of course I must be a repug housewife, otherwise how could I not find Hillary's hairdo and long-standing, admitted opposition to gay equality adorable!!!

Full disclosure: male, anarchist, sodomite, feminist. I don't like Republicans. I just hate self-regarding liberal hypocrites more. Find the post that's inconsistent with who I say I am. 

And after you do that, show some consistency with your own politics by showing the slightest misgivings about Saint Hillary's opposition to gay marriage or her support for war and the shredding of civil liberties.

Asshole.

Tarzie

Yeah. And while we're on the subject of charm, let's not forget Mommy Warbucks, Dianne Feinstein. Now there's some brains. She's used her office to make herself and hubby rich through war profits! The hairdo has to go, though.

Liberals are so smart. So convincing. I don't know why I sometimes think they're as stupid as Teepers but snobbier and less entertaining.

Tarzie, WHOSE parades?  Surely not gay.  You are a disgrace to anyone with a brain.

Oh Tarzie I have to agree with you.  I don't know why the gays love the Clintons.  I still remember Bill when signing DOMA stating how important it was to protect marriage.  But when I was at the NYC pride one year and Hillary was in it, there were throngs of people running to see her.  I don't get it.  What has she really done for gay rights?

Oh Brother

Listen, you pompous ass: I know that deep down you know that whatever her politics and foibles, Hilary Clinton is an intelligent person. But can you really say that about Palin, Bachmann, or O'Donnell? C'mon. Get your head out of your own arse.

It's a shame he didn't say 'cunt' and 'bitch'. You might have shit your feminist pants laughing.

Bachmann is different because she's not afraid to face anyone anywhere - Sarah's chicken and O'Donnell caves in.   The secret is to ignore criticism and questions for clarification, and move on to the next speech - like when Bachmann promised $2/gallon gasoline - she should have gotten nailed by people asking how she proposed to do it (send thugs to OK, TX, and AK to steal their oil??) - some doe-eyed saps probably think she can do it.

"The Repugs obviously hate women if these are their most prominent examples."

This is quite possibly the stupidest thing I have ever read. If they really hated women, would any women be prominent in the party at all?

And Michael, you can't blame misogyny on ugly stupid Republican women. You gotta own that your own self.

How can these people use the c, f, and b words and I "need to be approved" to say "ditzes".  Ah - maybe the link I posted...   Read about  "Dunning-Kruger effect" to see what's wrong with this type of personality (Darwin:  "Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge").  Summarizing:

Kruger and Dunning proposed that, for a given skill, incompetent people will:

1) tend to overestimate their own level of skill;2) fail to recognize genuine skill in others;3) fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;4) recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they can be trained to substantially improve.(with these 3 and many politicians, "4" seems out of reach)

If you're so smart, tarzan, why do you think the repugs women are such low down, stupid twatz?

Tarzie
Tarzie

No. A disgrace to any gay person with a brain is someone who contemplates Hillary's STATED OPPOSITION TO GAY EQUALITY, and applauds.

I am quite confident I am smarter than you, at least based on your replies so far.

You have trolled through here and called names like s sixth grader without offering a single fact that contradicts me.

In all fairness she and her husband have been giving black folk a good fucking over for years and they love her too.

It's called self-loathing, a variation on the colonialized mind.

I hope that 'arse' means you are from a country where that word is used and not simply an anglophilic poseur. You argue as stupidly as an American. That's why I am speculating.

It only shows the limits of brains.In the end, they're all just a bunch of phobes to me. Hillary's brains and 'hairdo' just sell it to a classier kinda rube. Like you.

Women aren't prominent in the party, they're just showpieces.  As soon as some male comes along who isn't crazy, they'll dump the dumb broads and move on.

Ok so who's dumber:

Voter 1: Is opposed to gay equality and votes for a candidate who shares that beliefVoter 2: Supports gay equality and not only votes for candidates who not share that belief but openly admires them.

Who is more ethical:

Candidate 1: Does not support gay community and does not seek gay community supportCandidate 2: Does not support gay community but seeks (and receives) gay support.

Who the fuck are you people calling stupid?

'harpies', 'twats'.

Gee. Doesn't anyone want to call Bachman a cunt?you gotta love liberal feminism. It applies to Democrats only.I reckon Repug women are low down and stupid for the same reason Repug men generally are. And to paraphrase myself, between the two parties you just have various flavors of war-mongering, power-fellating scumballs. Your 'smart' Democrats with their swell hairdos are just flypaper for a more preeningly self-regarding kind of rube: YOU.

Your screen name says it all, Tarzie: Warlover!  You are a bitter, miserable war loving sort of person, probably a recluse with long toe nails.  Why don't you redirect your anger, maybe towards your mother?  She must have guided you well, until you became...Warlover!

Still waiting for the liberal to defend Hillary on actual policy.

But the name-calling's fun. Here's some: infantile, fact-proof dipshits!

Now it's your turn. Y'all are so sophisticated, I can't wait.
