Stop Disparaging Female Anglers and Hunters

“Marry an outdoors woman. Then if you throw her out into the yard on a cold night, she can still survive.” – W.C. Fields

The relentless attacks on female anglers and hunters have gone too far.

From threats targeted at 19-year-old huntress Kendall Jones to 17-year-old Belgian teen Axelle Despiegelaere, anti-hunters–usually insecure leftist males–are calling on others to inflict harm onto young women who are self-reliant and independent.

This guy, who calls himself an “Agitated Texas Republican,” says women who hunt are ignorant and blood-thirsty. (Talk about elevating women!)

Another tweeted that hunting is out-of-date: “Hunting is so 1914! It stopped with Teddy Roosevelt!”

Attacking women who choose to fish and hunt hurts, rather than helps, females realize their potential. What happened to being pro-choice?

New York Post’s Eliyahu Federman wrote an article titled “The ignorant, sexist attacks on female hunters” to showcase the hypocrisy of guys who disparage female anglers and hunters. Here’s an excerpt:

1) Their hunting was perfectly legal. As a spokesperson for Jones pointed out, “All of Kendall’s hunts in Zimbabwe and South Africa were 100 percent legal, with proper tags and licenses awarded on a pre-approved quota by the countries’ officials and wildlife department.”

No, “legal” isn’t the same as “moral,” but attacking these young women in personal terms for lawful hunting is pointless. If you have a problem with big-game hunting, change the laws, don’t mindlessly attack individuals.

2) Hunting helps support poor local African communities. People magazine reported how Jones paid $160,000 in fees and services “provided by local trackers, skinners and assistants.” That money went to provide jobs, incomes and food in destitute parts of Zimbabwe and South Africa. Trophy hunting provides meat to local villagers and generates an estimated $200 million a year in revenue in poor countries in Africa and elsewhere.

3) African hunting helps conservation. It is poaching that poses a threat, not lawful hunting. In fact, the operators of hunting conservancies fight poaching to “protect the wildlife resources on which they depend.”

….

4) Animals aren’t people. Sport hunting isn’t murder, no matter how much some detest it.

5) Hunters are often middle-aged men, but the brunt of online outrage seems directed at young attractive women like Jones, Despiegelaer, Melissa Bachman, Olivia Opre, and Sarah Palin, not the male “Duck Dynasty” types. Sure looks like sexism.

Fishing and hunting are essential to sustainability and conservation. These activities promote the environment and encourage stewardship. The majority of fishermen and hunters abide by laws. Our license fees and investments in gear/equipment support charities and wildlife conservation efforts. What’s the harm in revering and replenishing nature? (Answer: Nothing!)

Even left-leaning National Geographic has praised and acknowledged the rise of female hunters:

Hunters are also quick to note that funds from purchases of licenses, equipment, and ammunition go to support conservation efforts for a variety of species. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, every year nearly $200 million is distributed from the federal taxes associated with hunting to support wildlife management programs, the purchase of lands for habitat conservation, and hunter education and safety classes.

There’s another factor, too: fun. Hunting is a way for women to be outdoors and enjoy nature while spending time with husbands and children who hunt.

“Women are realizing how much fun hunting is and how close it can actually bring them in their relationships with their families,” says Tiffany Lakosky, co-host of the Outdoor Channel hunting show Crush with Lee and Tiffany and a top bowhunter. “The whole concept is that I am shooting my family’s dinner tonight and we’re eating something I shot. I would say probably 90 percent of the meat we eat, we hunted.”

Whether or not you agree with fishing or big game hunting, be mindful that anglers and hunters are people too. We have feelings, compassion, and are fallible. (After all, we’re human.) Despite what the naysayers say, we respect our surroundings. We love nature. We want more empowered women and men. We don’t appreciate being pidgeonholed and threatened by jerks who have little to no regard for personal safety or tolerance of different beliefs. In fact, these attacks only encourage us to take up gun ownership and continue to speak out in favor of our beliefs.

Fellow female anglers and hunters: Don’t become disheartened by our detractors. Instead, go confidently in the right direction to enjoy the outdoors.

Good News: More Females Are Purchasing Firearms

19-year-old huntress Kendall Jones posted this interesting graphic on the rise of female gun owners:

Here are some interesting stats based off of a 2011 Gallup poll on the rise of female gun ownership:

  • 73% of gun owners noticed a spike in female gun ownership
  • 43% of women reported household gun ownership
  • 41% of Republicans, 27% Independents, 23% of Democrats identified as gun owners
  • 16.4% of hunters are female

Even leftist rag Rolling Stone printed an article today detailing this very encouraging trend. Here’s an excerpt:

Over the last decade, the percentage of armed women in America has risen quietly: according to Gallup, the numbers went from 13% in 2005 to 23% in 2011. By last year, that rise wasn’t so quiet anymore. Women’s interest sites declared “The Rise Of The Female Gun Nut.” A Girl and a Gun-type shooting clubs, like Babes with Bullets and The Well Armed Woman, bloomed. And a staunchly, proudly masculine industry at least attempted to keep pace. Walk around a gun show these days, and you’re more likely than not to find at least one table piled wide with .223-caliber AR-15 assault rifles rendered in hot pink.

Strong, independent women don’t rely on the government for empowerment or security. We take it upon ourselves to prevent and deter harm unto ourselves by arming ourselves with facts and firearms. Complacency need not apply, unless you take your cues from the female establishment.

This news is very promising. Here’s to hoping more females take up self-defense and firearm safety!

New Counter Cultured Article: Self-Defense Doesn’t Perpetuate ‘Rape Culture’

I’ve penned a new column at Counter Cultured called, “Self-Defense Doesn’t Perpetuate ‘Rape Culture‘” today.

Here’s an excerpt:

Last week at the Miss USA pageant, newly-crowned winner Nia Sanchez was accused of promoting “rape culture” after answering a question about sexual assault on college campuses.

Sanchez responded with the following:

I believe that some colleges may potentially be afraid of having a bad reputation and that would be a reason it could be swept under the rug, because they don’t want that to come out into the public,” Nia Sanchez said. “But I think more awareness is very important so women can learn how to protect themselves. Myself, as a fourth-degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself. And I think that’s something that we should start to really implement for a lot of women.

Her response angered radical feminists.

Twitter user @hayleethikeo tweeted, “sorry miss Nevada. we do not need to teach women how to better defend ourselves. We need to teach men not to feel entitled to rape #missusa.”

Elissa Benson of Cosmopolitan tweeted, “I get that the college sexual assault problem can’t be solved in 30 secs but still icky to pretend like self defense is the answer. #MissUSA

Despite negative backlash, Nia Sanchez stood by her response. She went on HuffPoLive to reaffirm her answer about women taking up self-defense:

We have 30 seconds to answer a question. I feel like all you can do up on that stage on national television is answer the best you personally know how, so I answered with something that I know. I always believe in women empowerment and women’s encouragement and for me, in my life, that’s self-defense,” she explained. “Maybe for somebody else it’s a Taser or something else, but that’s the way I could relate to it personally.

The question beckons: What is “rape culture” and what does it consist of?

Dear #BanBossy Girls: Quit Bossing Us Around With Big Government Policies

Any time radical feminists get angry, they want to ban stuff.

Famous female figures like Beyonce, Jennifer Garner Affleck, Jane Lynch, and Condi Rice are offended by the term “bossy” supposedly being used to describe female leaders. Why?

Here’s the #BanBossy video:

A message to the #BanBossy gals:

Did it ever occur to radical feminists that they boss everyone around them? Whether it’s government coercion or Hollywood, they demand attention and scoff at dissent. If you’re a woman who dismisses government-enabled “empowerment,” they skewer you, call you awful names, and question your femininity. If you’re pro-life, pro-gun, and don’t think all men are pigs, you’re the anti-Christ. Frankly, I’m tired of being bossed around by primadonnas who coax women using the so-called allure of paternalistic government.

Newsflash: Whenever women behave like victims, they won’t and shouldn’t be taken seriously in the public square. Want to be a leader? Act like one. Quit complaining and scapegoating society because you’re insecure with yourselves.

Sincerely,

A 22-year-old female who proudly rejects big government policies

Friday Feminism Fail: Moral Outrage Over Self-Defense and Sandwich-Making

As I read some news headlines this morning, two unique stories – both involving whining from feminists- caught my attention.

The first story is from Paris Fashion Week.

British model Hollie-May Saker, 18, fought off several feminist protestors from the Ukrainian group Femen as they interrupted the Nina Ricci show.

Saker said, ‘My Scouseness came out a bit but I wish it had come out a bit more. Thinking about it now I wish I’d pushed them both off the stage because they ruined my favourite show.’

A young woman fending for herself and rejecting victimhood? You go girl!

The second story involves a woman facing criticism over her blog “300Sandwiches.com.” Apparently, making sandwiches for a man is sexist and oppressive? OH MY GOODNESS – ESCAPE THE KITCHEN! CURSE YOU, PATRIARCHY! Or something.

I met a guy. I made a sandwich. I started a blog. And I enraged feminists everywhere.

On Wednesday, I wrote in The Post about how my boyfriend Eric’s joke remark after making him a snack — “Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!” — inspired me to do just that and chronicle the project on a Web site, 300sandwiches.com.

Apparently, in some corners of the Internet, this is an outrage.

I, as a woman, see no ill in making sandwiches for men, myself, or my friends. Smith made her OWN choice to produce 300 unique sandwich creations. (Choice for me, not for thee?) And the snippet about 300 sandwiches until she gets an engagement ring? It’s a joke between Smith and her boyfriend. Get over yourselves.

I will add that patriarchy never tasted so delicious.

Stay classy, feminists. Quit ruining fun for the rest of us.

 

Happy Birthday, Counter Cultured!

From interviews with Ryan T. Anderson and former presidential candidate Rick Santorum to viral vlogs to grassroots video projects, we’ve succeeded in adding the young conservative perspective to the culture war.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed, participated in our videos, and supported our blog along the way. Here’s to many more years. Stay counter cultured!

Smart Girls Are Armed, Conservative, and Fabulous: My “Youth in Action” Interview

smart girl

Teen conservative and Smart Girl Politics activist Bethany Bowra (@bethanybowra) interviewed me for the latest installment of Smart Girl Politics’ “Youth in Action” series profiling young conservative female activists. Those of you who know me are familiar with my hold-no-prisoners approach to conservative politics, anti-Communist tendencies, and desire to lure in more young people to our movement.

I hope my thoughts and sentiments in this interview inspire other freedom-loving youngsters to speak out and reject collectivism. Without a doubt, we must encourage more young conservatives…especially young conservative females.

Enjoy!

While Planned Parenthood and Democrat women in Congress claim to speak for all women, these young women have something to say about that. Contrary to popular belief, those groups do not speak for all young women— many young women my age have views that are quite the opposite. Below is my interview with conservative activist, Gabriella Hoffman!

Why did you get involved in politics?

I got involved in conservative politics because of my parents. My mother and my father are Lithuanian immigrants who escaped from Soviet communism 27 years ago. The Left’s policies remind them too much of the Old Country, so conservatism came naturally to them. Their stories and perspective on life really brought me to conservatism. Both sides of my family suffered immensely in the former Soviet Union. I’m in this fight to honor their memories and remind people that freedom must be safeguarded for future generations to come.

How did you get involved?

In 2006 when I was 15, I started writing a column in a local Orange County, CA community paper, The Coto Voice, called “Teen Beat.” I maintained this column for three years. I primarily focused on topics ranging from volunteering in high school to upholding traditional values. After I graduated from high school and moved onto college, I began to write about politics for The California Review, the conservative paper at UC-San Diego. From there, I went onto running a YAF chapter and hosting David Horowitz on campus- an event which landed on national news. After the event garnered a lot of attention, I started working for The Rick Amato Show as an Executive Assistant and landed a coveted role at Eagle Forum of San Diego as the Director of Youth Outreach.  I also started blogging for various websites and publications.

What issues have you been focused on since you became active?

I’m a firm believer in sound conservatism (social and fiscal conservatism), and I also believe in strong national defense. During my time at UC-San Diego, I heavily focused on support for Israel (I have family there and support a healthy U.S.-Israel relationship) and exposing militant leftists on campus. I also exposed radical feminism and openly condemned the Vagina Monologues. Now, I concentrate on a plethora of issues ranging from traditional values to Israel advocacy to media/leftist/campus bias to free enterprise.

The War on Men Must Stop: My Thoughts on Manliness

images

WARNING: This post contains traces of sarcasm and humor. Please don’t take offense to anything I write, unless you’re a beta male.

Earlier this week, I was tweeting about the need for more manly men in our country. Apart from communists and Marxists, nothing irritates me more than feckless people – especially feckless men.

You see, in a selfish sort of way, I don’t want to have to pick and choose a potential boyfriend (and later husband) from a crop of wusses. When a female looks for a potential mate, she looks for a guy who resembles her dad – a guy who is loving, strong, affectionate, fun to be around, and confident. I want to look forward to dating, not babysitting – is that a crime? I know other women share this same frustration.

I’m biased when I say this, but my dad is the definition of manliness. Heck, HE IS the Most Interesting Man in the World – well, his lookalike.

When I say my dad is the epitome of manliness, I sincerely mean it. My dad doesn’t take crap from people; he lived in a communist country and went through (and later overcame) many challenges in Lithuania. He is a fisherman, general contractor, husband, father, brother, and friend.  If that’s not manliness, then what is? There are many men like this; they just need to be recognized and encouraged.

In general, feeble-minded men are a reflection of a country gone awry – a country vulnerable to attack.

That being said, you can read my thoughts on manliness and the war feminists are waging on it below:

“It’s Raining Beta Men: Why Emasculation is a Curse, Not a Blessing”

Harvard professor and Manliness author Harvey C. Mansfield opined, “We are attracted to the manly man because he imparts some of his confidence to everyone else.”

Manly men—past and present—have captivated the world with their talents, leadership, oratory skills, and virility. They are strong, protective, and brave. They are fathers, gentlemen, husbands, friends, and neighbors. They are innovators, pioneers, and model citizens. Simply put, manly men are invincible.

Great men like Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, Winston Churchill, and Clark Gable exhibited manly traits in their respective lives. They lived in an era where men were expected to defend themselves and were prepared to fight. Before the ascendancy of feminism, manliness was the gold standard – a virtue all young men wanted and sought. Anything short of manliness was discouraged.

Today, we look to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Florida Congressman Allen West, actor Bruce Willis, and other manly men for confidence and guidance. They make us feel safe and comfortable. They lead us and represent us. They protect us from harm’s way here and abroad. Without them, civilization would cease to exist.

Alas, feminists have waged a war on men and continue to perpetrate it.

Feminists contend that patriarchy and its “male enablers” enslave women through marriage and motherhood. They assert that men are sex-driven, lustful pigs keen on subduing women. As a result, feminists are determined to undermine them.

Here is proof:

1)      A typical feminist believes men enslave women through marriage:

“Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the Women’s Movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.” – Sheila Cronan, in Radical Feminism – “Marriage” (1970)

2)      A typical feminist thinks men are rapists:

“Male sexual aggression is endemic, if any sex act against a person’s will were considered rape, the majority of men would be rapists.” – Marilyn French, The War Against Women, Ballantine Books, 1992, p. 193

3)      A typical feminist wants to eradicate manliness:

“Only when manhood is dead–and it will perish when ravaged femininity no longer sustains it–only then will we know what it is to be free.”  -Andrea Dworkin, Our Blood: Prophecies And Discourses On Sexual Politics

In order to successfully carry out their agenda, feminists want “new castrati males” to replace manly men.

Rush Limbaugh famously coined this lexicon and recently affirmed that new castrati males are “men with no guts who have just been bullied by women and the power structure and liberalism in general.” He could not be farther from the truth.

Beta males greatly contrast manly men. They are weak, defenseless, and overtly emotional. They are uninspiring and deprived. And more importantly, they are subservient to women.

Unfortunately, these emasculated males have pervaded society. Turn on the T.V., and you see a guy crying on his wife’s shoulder or hiding behind her skirt. Listen to men talk about the so-called contraception shortage. They’re feckless and equally duped by feminist talking points. Watch beta males be berated by their feminist girlfriends and wives in public. It is humiliating and outrageous to watch.

When will the madness stop? When will real men stand up to emasculation and demand its end?

Fear not, there is a glimmer of hope.

Daily Telegraph recently published an article highlighting a new study that found strong men are likely to be conservative. It said, “Researchers cite muscle-bound Hollywood action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone as evidence that aggression is linked to conservative politics.”

The article added that conservative men boast “the hunter-gatherer instincts of macho men – which are a hangover of out cavemen origins when the strongest ruled the roost.”

Conservative men must vow to defend manliness. Our nation was built upon the hard work of men, not wimps. With the lackluster economy, high unemployment, and destructive leftist policies already in place, emasculation will add to this country’s demise unless it is stopped.

Men: America needs you and your strength. Do not surrender your virility to feminists. Instead, work tirelessly to combat this attack.

Beta males – you will not go unnoticed. Let the reclamation of manliness begin!

The Implications of Sperm Donor Dads

The Sperm Bike in Copenhagen- 07

Image by Mikael Colville-Andersen via Flickr

In an age where marriage, family, and Judeo-Christian values are under siege, it is important to pose the alternative. With contraceptives, abortion, and other unorthodox practices readily available and accepted, sperm donors should not come as a surprise.

In my time at college, I have seen ads in my university paper calling for egg or sperm donors. Most college newspapers advertise the same services. They entertain offers to make bank by giving sperm or eggs to labs for research and/or  “humanitarian” causes.

In a time where students need money, this seems like a good prospect. Why not – give your sperm off  through little to no effort and make money! How awesome is that?

Nevertheless, do students who partake in this understand the implications of their actions? Do they understand how many children they may potentially father?

My sister Anna Maria Hoffman, who also contributes to TheCollegeConservative, expounds on this unethical and equally demoralizing practice in her column “Sperm Donor Daddy: The Breakdown of Society“:

“On September 12, 2011, Style Exposed aired a program called “Sperm Donor”, which features 33-year old Ben Siesler, a man who has fathered 74 children. When he was in law school at George Mason University, he donated to a local sperm bank for three years and never knew he fathered so many children until recently. For each month he donated his sperm, he received $900. Throughout the documentary, he has trouble telling his fiancée Lauren about his 74 children, while they both discuss wedding plans and the possibility of having children of their own in the near future.

Sound Conservatism, CollegeConservative Launch, and Battle of the Blonds

Today marks the launch of TheCollegeConservative–a new daily publication for conservative college students, by conservative college students. I have the esteemed pleasure of serving as one of three assistant editors and as a contributor.

The Daily Caller and FOX Nation picked up our website.

Here’s my debut piece entitled, “Of Principle and Pragmatism: Why Conservatism Always Trumps Moderation”:

In this time of great moral and economic peril, certain individuals continue to call for a radical transformation of our nation’s traditions, laws, and customs.

Then-Senator, now-President Obama championed “Hope and Change” and subsequently delivered class warfare rhetoric, socialized healthcare, appeasement, and anti-Americanism, to name a few. Similarly, Republicans—most pointedly, Republicans in Name Only (RINOs)—want to dilute the conservative message because “it alienates moderates and independents.”

Proponents of such change, particularly liberal Republicans, succeeded in undermining conservatism in 2006 and 2008. Towards the end of his presidency, President George W. Bush emboldened big government policies like No Child Left Behind, TARP, and billion-dollar budget shortfalls. Conservatism suffered a similar blow when John McCain clinched the Republican nomination in 2008. He was representative of the Republican Party gone awry: unabashedly moderate, disconnected from everyday life, and irresponsible in conduct. Without running mate and conservative champion Sarah Palin, McCain would have been a total failure.

In 2009, Ed Feulner of Heritage Foundation wrote about the importance of reconciling all tenets of conservatism: “I suggest that what is now needed is a politics of inclusion, not exclusion–no casting out of social conservatives or neoconservatives or any other kind of conservative, but a renewed fusionism that will unite all the branches of the now-divided conservative mainstream.”

After President Obama’s coronation into office on January 20, 2009, the tide began to change.

People united under the Tea Party Movement banner to reclaim limited government principles, constitutional values, and fiscal responsibility. Their efforts materialized in November 2010 after Republicans reclaimed control of the House of Representatives and won several Senate seats.

Similarly, Americans continued to champion traditional values. In 2008, Californians overwhelmingly voted 52 to 48 percent in favor of Prop 8—which defined marriage as between “one man and one woman.” Additionally, LifeNews cites Gallup analyst Lydia Saad on the ascent of pro-life views in 2011:  “Americans are rather conservative in their stance on abortion, with 61% now preferring that abortion be legal in only a few circumstances or no circumstances. By contrast, 37% want abortion legal in all or most circumstances.”

Nevertheless, moderate and liberal Republicans have called for a moratorium or the complete elimination of social issues from the Republican Party.

In a 2010 interview with Weekly Standard, Indiana governor Mitch Daniels said presidential candidates “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues. We’re going to just have to agree to get along for a little while.”

Republican feminist Margaret Hoover similarly called on the Republican Party to drop its pro-life plank.  Hoover said, “If we don’t make inroads in the next 16 months, we’re going to lose the next generation.”

“People like you who try to divide our party on social issues, that is not the way forward for the Republican Party,” she added.

Moreover, the “brilliant” Meghan McCain—daughter of “Lord of the TARP” John McCain—has taken every opportunity to deride conservative women and social issues.

McCain said, “I consider myself a progressive Republican. I am liberal on social issues. And I think that the party is at a place where social issues shouldn’t be the issues that define the party.”

Recently, I heard the same rallying cry to hose down “extreme” conservative viewpoints at a conference. The male attendee—one markedly dumbfounded by conservatism at this conservative conference—bemoaned how Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum, along with social issues, are “too extreme” for the Republican Party.

The horror, the horror!

The question beckons: Who are these people to chide conservatives for holding their beliefs? Why must political expediency—not principles—be the sole path to winning elections?

In 1980, Ronald Reagan ran for president as a conservative and won. He did not pander to moderate viewpoints. On the contrary, he succeeded as President of the United States because he championed conservative ideals.

Renowned conservative thinker Dr. Robert P. George of Princeton University expounds on this by presenting the case for sound conservatism in “No Mere Marriage of Convenience: Uniting Social and Economic Conservatives.”

He writes, “Sound conservatism, as a matter of principle and not mere pragmatism, will honor limited government, restrain spending, and provide honest money and low taxes — while at the same time upholding the sanctity of human life in all stages and conditions; the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife; and the innocence of children.”

As a result, it is imperative to vote conservative in 2012, so as to defeat President Obama and restore this country’s greatness.

Throughout history, moderate Republican candidates lost in general elections. Next year, voters can select a conservative candidate—a social, fiscal, and national defense conservative—to implement real change in Washington, D.C.

Till then, I will cling to my fishing rod, anti-Communism, family values, and Constitution before succumbing to big-government, leftist and equally Marxist-Leninist viewpoints— so should you.

We at TheCollegeConservative hold no prisoners and will not kowtow to Cultural Marxism. You have been warned!

Continue reading at TheCollegeConservative.

Also, pieces by TCC contributors Domenic Gelsomino and Marc Seelinger were featured today.  Every weekday, we’ll publish three articles. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s batch!

I’d also like to thank Robert Stacy McCain and Smitty of The Other McCain for profiling my piece and our site. I couldn’t be more thrilled! Thank you, gentlemen. (If you don’t already read their website, I suggest you do.)

They had this to say about my jab at intellectual midget Meghan McCain. (Note: Snark is intended.)

You see Gabby, this notion of starting from any invariant principles and applying those principles to life is all backward. We have to embrace the notion that wise experts at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service somehow know better, despite the news that anthropogenic globalclimate warmingchange, like the rest of the Progressive project, stands revealed as a giant, steaming crock of. . .oatmeal.

And social issues like drugs and abortion are just another case of Maggie Is Right. We should welcome our new Priests of Baal just as much as we scoff at the notion of ideological purity (read: common sense).

Don’t let this here internet thingy fool you, Gabby. Just because you think you have access to better information does not mean you can reject the ‘wisdom’ of the self-appointed elite. They may be incompetent, Hoffman, but they’re all we’ve got, to hear them tell it. And Progressivism may suck, but time only moves forward, and that means our political ideas cannot look back, even if the ideas we reject were relatively superior to the dog’s breakfast currently before us.

You see, I’m not a fan of Meghead…er, Meghan McCain.

The girl is a liberal in Republican clothing who quips how oppressive and mean-spirited conservatives are. (The horror, the horror!). She always finds an opportunity to bash women like Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and Laura Ingraham just to add to her 15 minutes of fame. She exploits Daddy McCain’s name and has no shame whatsoever. And she puts a bad name to smart and equally articulate blonds like myself…Thank you for adding to the negative stereotype, hon!

In all seriousness, Meggie, you don’t represent me, women, the Conservative Movement, or Generation Y. And yes, we will NEVER take you seriously as a political commentator.

Apart from my apartment ceiling suffering a massive blow today, this has been a relatively great day with TCC’s launch and Barney Frank’s retirement. Happy Monday, everyone!
