Sarah Palin — the recurrent infection given to America by John McCain during his presidential campaign that crashed and burned like it was just another plane given to him by the Navy — is flaring up again.
Haven’t we suffered enough already for whatever it was that we did, particularly if we didn’t mean to do it, whatever it was?
Okay. Now what, Sarah?
When we last heard from the matriarch of the Rock-em Sock’em Drunk’en Palin Partycrashers, she was very upset at America for laughing at her daughters who are apparently easily tipped over after a Zima or nine. Having thoroughly harangued the American media for lamestream “reporting” so-called “police reports” and “transcripts” of her daughter drunk-babbling “word-like sounds” at police officers, Palin has turned her disapproving eye on that colored Obamerbola guy for talking shit about someone’s mom.
According to Sarah — who is the mother of either four or five children depending upon whether you’re Andrew Sullivan or not — Oebolabunglermomhater, “Declares Stay-at-Home Moms Aren’t Worth a Hill of Beans; Says It’s a Choice ‘We Don’t Want Americans to Make”
Apparently this is in reference to an Obama speech where he made a pitch for better pay and childcare for mothers in the workforce saying, “Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”
This caught the attention of the preternaturally aggrieved tweet aggregators at Twitchy and from there it flowed downhill to Sarah who decided this was A BLOOD LIBEL against mothers who maybe want to stay home and take care of kids, did you ever think about that, Obama!!?!!?? Well. did’ja?
Bee firmly ensconced in her Bumpit, Palin wrote a scathing UNFRIEND -DO NOT LIKE post to Obama on her Facebook page that will undoubtedly make him very very sad when he checks his own Facebook feed.
What did she write? Oh, something about “women” and “respect” and “feminism” and how Obama is a hater; so it’s kind of like GamerGate, but without the deeply serious discussion over journalistic ethics.
It’s all very Palinesque stream-of-gibberish, so here are a few excerpts of words-she-strung-together-representing-pictures-of-things-she-saw-happening-in-her-head.
Enjoy, if you can:
Well that just takes the cake. Sure, Obama’s latest shot across the bow in his own “War on Women” is easily deflected by women like my friends and me testifying to the most precious, irreplaceable seasons of our lives when we were BLESSED to be “stay-at-home moms” (though I don’t remember any of us actually “staying home” in those busiest times of our children’s lives), but Friday’s jab deserves something right back nonetheless. On behalf of former and current stay-at-homers, including my girlfriends who still get together to bake cookies for the bake sale (see photos in my kitchen above), and volunteer to coach kids ball teams, and man the church’s food bank, and entertain latchkey kids, and all that other obnoxiously “housewifey” stuff, the President needs to be spanked.
…your attempts to convince America that only guys in government should control birth control – since free women aren’t capable in a free market of walking down the drug store aisle to find it ourselves. Add, too, your shameless silence on the deplorable human rights violations in countries you’d befriend even though women are treated mercilessly there. Seriously, not a peep from atop your soapbox about the common practice of radical Islamist men going all jihad, literally, on females who’d dare cross their male “masters”? And in that creepy way you prioritize your time and our resources, instead of using your Nobel peacenik creds to influence the misogynist crazies in some of these Islamic death cults, you’re out playing hoops… with the guys. Oh, also add your good ol’ boys club (aka the White House) that still pays women less than men, and I’ll stop with the nonstop examples.
… and my favorite part:
You really are stuck in a contorted kind of ’60s feminism where you obviously don’t trust women to make their own decisions, so you’re frustrated. Despite your view – and policies – that government must lord over women, in keeping with radical liberalism, you have to fake support for our equal rights; so you do it in a militant sort of way to compensate for your confusion. On pretending to know what’s best for us you’ve got nothing but a silent scream demanding, “Hear me roar.”
So, in conclusion:
Besides you proving the liberal double-standard in regards to choice and sexism, you demean some of the hardest working women on the planet. Perhaps you never witnessed the benefits a “full-time mom” provides a family, a community, our schools, our nation, but you’re a big boy now so figure it out yourself without me lecturing you on the beauty of a homemaker. Suffice it to say “stay-at-home moms” make the world go ’round.
Shorter Sarah Palin:
“Hand that rocks the cradle, bitch. Hand that rocks the cradle…”
