  • Crawford Wives

       August 26, 2004

    I was reading an article online in the Denver Post last night when I was served a popup ad featuring the "Crawford wives". A quick search led me to the BushvChoice website. Their piece de resistance is this faux movie poster:

    While that poster is kinda cute (except for the hideous dress on Laura Bush), the website itself spews the usual liberal bs:

    Laura, Karen, Ann, Lynne, Condi, Katherine - they're successful professors, lawyers, librarians and novelists. They have minds of their own. Yet, they unquestioningly support President Bush even as he robs women of the right to make private decisions about their personal lives. Even worse, they're masking Bush's record of restricting women's rights & convincing women across the country to vote for Bush in November.

    I can't tell you how much this offends me. But if I break it down I'll make it through it.

    1. By using only first names, this "women's" organization is showing a complete lack of respect for these women. It's condescending and they know it. We do the same thing with Hillary and Teresa, but we're also not claiming to be a women's organization.

    2. These women "unquestioningly" support Bush. This is a common liberal tactic. When someone disagrees with your viewpoint, you claim that they're just an unthinking partisan sheep. Once again, this "women's" organization is denying women the right to their own opinion. If they disagree with the liberal view, it must just be because men are making them. Ugh.

    3. They claim that Bush robs women of "private decisions about their personal lives". The only decision this "women's" organization cares about is abortion. What about my private decision to carry a gun? Or my decision about who and how my tax dollars are spent? Or my decision on where to send my child to school? These issues are just as important to women as abortion. Or, does this "women's" organization think that the scope of decisions women make ends at her womb?

    It's just too ironic to me that a group for "choice" is so intent on ridiculing women that choose to disagree with them.

    Check the polling; Kerry's not soing wo well with women, either.

    You're only making a personal choice if you agree with them. If you disagree with them, you're an automaton just blindly following along. I've always been so frustrated by that sort of argument.

    I tend to think the majority of the public is starting to recognize the hit pieces for what they are, although they definitely are offensive on more than one level. It's like when somebody is shrieking about all the freedoms we are losing under John Ashcroft, I look around and say, "Uh, and which freedoms exactly have I lost?" Probably more and more women will be hearing this stuff about Republicans robbing them of their private decisions - going on for a couple decades now - and recognizing it as hyperbole.

    It also doesn't hurt when they ARE just unthinking partisan sheep.
