‘Twas the week before election and incumbents in the House
can’t “man-up” because each one is as meek as a mouse.
The phrase “man-up” is the catch phrase of the midterm elections this time out. It’s being successfully used by Republican female candidates against their male Democratic rivals.
The GOP stole the phrase from those beer commercials on TV where every woman is a bartender and some load of a guy is making a fool of himself one way or another and the lady barkeeps insult his testosterone level because he doesn’t drink the sponsor’s light beer.
It’s no coincidence that these commercials run during sports events that are primarily watched by men.
More evidence the liberal elite of show bidness can’t get enough of making women come off more powerful and in control than men. We already know women are smarter. Madison Avenue has drilled that into our psyches long ago.
Check out the majority of TV shows and movies nowadays: Women call each other “dude” and say they have cajones.
Men call each other the “B” word and when they call one another out for being weak they call each other the word that rhymes with wussy.
So it stands to reason that this is the year of women in politics.
You might be thinking, wait a minute!, TV news channels say this every election year.
You might be right. But this year it’s underplayed — even though there are more women running for Senate, House and governor than in most years.
The reason why it’s not pounded home like a TV ad showing stereotypical heterosexual men being outsmarted by their children (and sometimes animals) is because the majority of the Big Ticket names of women running for office are Republican.
If Mama Grizzly (who is not running for office but taking credit for being a Queenmaker) was a Democrat she’d be deified ala Hillary Clinton.
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell would somehow manage to get the Baked Alaskan’s name in somehow on every one of her shows daily like she does Clinton’s.
The Republicans are (gasp!) more progressive when it comes to nominating women for political office this year.
And the ladies are as diverse as Palin and an original thought.
In Cali-for-nee-ah, you got your Meg Whitman and your Carly Fiorina —– two mega-successful women who could win as governor and Senator, respectively.
In fact, Whitman and Forina are so powerful, they didn’t need to be seen with Pistol Packin’ Palin when she was in Gomorrah recently.
OK, for every Meg Whitman there’s the female candidate for Senate from Connecticut, Linda McMahon, who made a fortune going to the mat for a fake sport where, on numerous occasions, she got to kick some wassler in the junk.
Then there’s Christine “I’m not a witch. I’m you” O’Donnell, who is running apparently badly for the Senate in Delaware.
The way poor Chrissy’s campaign is going it could be referred to “Paranormal Activity 2″ (or in her case, three, since this is the third time she’s running for the Senate.)
It’s good to see that in reality (and not on a network TV show or in commercials) that women running for political office are just as goofy and ill-prepared to assume the role of lawmaker as are men. They have real flaws. Take that Julia Roberts.
But the fact still remains, if these candidates were Democrats, the liberal news media would be talking endlessly about more cracks in the glass ceiling falling to the ground.
OK, maybe not in the case of whackaloon Nevada Senate candidate Sharron “Armed and ready if Republicans don’t get what they want this election” Angle.
It’s a fact that some of these female candidates will win. If that’s the case, their power and influence wouldn’t have to be consistently referred to as a novelty anymore.
In fact, it could become so common that one day during a debate pitting a male candidate against an incumbent female lawmaker, he could get away with telling her to “Woman up!”
Wouldn’t that be a kick in the junk.
