Did Kevin Foley fall into a bathtub with his blow dryer or what? Just like Mel Gibson, who did that in some movie and woke up wearing panty hose and hearing the thoughts of women all around, Foley is now convinced he knows the minds of conservative women. And he ... is so sad for us. How condescending.
All of Mr. Foley’s columns are revealing, but Friday’s was the crown jewel, revealing how little he understands about non-progressive women who are educated more deeply on issues than the propaganda he spews, both in his columns and his PR business.
Reeling off various straw men and dropping marginal names to make his unintelligible points, Foley forgets many of us were schooled before Common Core, when we learned about Marxism and political theory and what a threat his chosen ideals are to liberty, freedom and prosperity.
Obamacare — the government takeover of our health care — is hurting, maybe even killing, real people and devastating the already broken economy. Promises of “shovel ready” jobs were a lie and Obama knew it. Birth control is a red herring and many conservative women don’t vote based on abortion — at all. We don’t think of ourselves as an “interest group.” but as fully contributing Americans who want to do what’s right for the country.
Foley’s hero, the grad student (Sandra Fluke) who had 15 minutes of fame because she’d rather pay for overpriced coffee than her own birth control, is but a joke to many of us, an example of whining progressive womanhood who doesn’t see how lucky she has it.
I know those panty hose are tight, Kev. But cheer up. While you struggle with them, conservative women like Nikki Hailey, Mia Love, Liz Cheney, Karen Handel and others have us covered, boldly communicating the conservative standard of liberty, freedom from political overreach, prosperity and reform — all the things you “progressives” hate.
