We've come a long, long way, Baby ......(Obama’s candidacy is lipstick on a pig)
Fox ^ | September 11th, 2008 | James P. Pinkerton

For more than 40 years, the mainstream media has chosen to define “feminism” and “the woman’s agenda” through a leftist prism. Then came Sarah Palin.

In part one of this series, outlining the three struggles raging behind the presidential campaign, we looked at the ongoing populist rebellion against the entrenched elite, namely, the media. And now, we see another kind of rebellion: the insurgency against the liberal orthodoxy of feminism.

And in recent years, such prominent conservative women as Ann Coulter, Laura Schlessinger, Laura Ingraham, Michele Malkin, Mary Matalin, and Condoleezza Rice have all become non-liberal role models.

But conservative women (and moderate women, who admire spunk) didn’t have anyone to root for on the national stage—until Palin entered in August, from stage right.

Realizing that Palin profoundly threatens their monopoly on the definition of feminism and femininity

The National Organization for Women (NOW), founded in 1966, was always a leftist front, seeking to disguise a social-democratic, even socialist, agenda behind the veil of feminism. And the liberal establishment was happy to say that such leftism spoke for “all women.”

Well, it didn’t. In fact, even in the days of MSM monopoly, there were conspicuous exceptions to liberal orthodoxy, such as Marabel Morgan, author of a 1973 book, “The Total Woman,” a conservative Christian-themed self-help book. And, also in the 70s, Phyllis Schlafly and her “Stop ERA” allies proved to be more powerful than the combined power of the liberal elites.

And of course, the larger reality is that Republicans have won seven of the 10 presidential elections from 1968 to 2004—despite the best efforts of left-leaning feminists to declare that the women’s vote is reflexively pro-Democratic. Well, as all those elections results proved, that hasn’t been the case.

(Obama’s candidacy is lipstick on a pig)

you can put lipstick on a capitalist pig.
but it's still a capitalist pig.


Bill Ayers TODAY (April 6, 2008), from his own red communist star-headed website, begging to debate communism vs capitalism with Sean Hannity and STILL calling for revolution!

"Imperialism. I’m against it, and if Sean Hannity and others were honest, this is the ground they would fight me on. Capitalism played its role historically and is exhausted as a force for progress: built on exploitation, theft, conquest, war, and racism, capitalism and imperialism must be defeated and a world revolution—a revolution against war and racism and materialism, a revolution based on human solidarity and love, cooperation and the common good —must win.

We begin by releasing our most hopeful dreams and our most radical imaginations: a better world is both possible and necessary.

Source: Bill Ayers' own website:


"a better world is both possible and necessary"?

Looks to me like Bill Ayers stole (or borrowed) this phrase from Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party. Both the Weather Underground and RCP have roots in the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) organization.

"The following is an excerpt from an historic talk by Chairman Bob Avakian, soon to be available on video and DVD from Three Q Productions-REVOLUTION: Why It's Necessary, Why It's Possible, What It's All About. This talk, delivered in 2003, followed by questions and answers, is a wide- ranging revolutionary journey, covering many topics."

Interview with Bill Ayers:
"On Progressive Education, Critical Thinking and the Cowardice of Some in Dangerous Times"


From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:

"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive — 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Many dems are just now realizing lipstick on a pig is not a winning strategy.

It's all about one intelligent, capable, powerful, and healthy woman who can stand on her own two feet. When you feel ill from looking at the twisted members of the far left, remember the fresh life Sarah Palin represents.
