The Grizzly Manifesto (loon feminists trashing conservative women) O
NYT ^ | Gail Collins

Posted on 11/06/2010 6:05:53 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

I think it is time to take back the mama grizzly

In real life, they are famous for their reproductive freedom,” said Gloria Steinem over the phone.

This is one of the many things I love about Steinem. When things are darkest, she will come up with a very cheering factoid about Iroquois women in pre-Columbian America or the private life of female bears.

“Mama grizzlies mate later than other bears,” she continued. “They have two cubs instead of four. They wait four years — about twice as long as other bears — between having cubs. And after they’re pregnant, if winter is hard or their health is not good or the food supply is uncertain, they re-absorb the embryo into their body.”

This is certainly a side of grizzly home life that we have not been getting from Sarah Palin, who has adopted the bear as the symbol of her movement

-snip-

The most infamous of Palin’s pet candidates, the ones who became national celebrities, were people like Christine O’Donnell and Sharron Angle and their high profile was because of their tendency to say, um, crazy stuff. They lost.

Goodbye loopy mama grizzlies. Thanks for the memories. You often were a headache, but you never were a bore. We’re left with a passel of normal conservatives of both sexes along with a cadre of male and female wackos, some of whom we have yet to really meet.

She doesn't emerge from the crypt to make personal appearances anymore.

If she didn't have Palin to whine about, no one would even remember her.

Nice to know Sarah lives rent free in Gloria Steinem’s brain.

Of course they would. She played Archie Bunker's daughter on All In The Family.

Mama grizzlies don’t steal elections either! Your Dem women better resemble the ugly and cantankerous hyenas.

That's Sally Struthers--Gloria Steinem played the mom in Everybody Loves Raymond.

What I love about grizzlies is that they eat liberals who go out looking for them to pet them and be their friends.

You mean like...

It helps to be sitting down to fully grasp the stupidity of what she said/wrote.

For someone the left deems as stupid and irrelevant, they sure give Sarah a lot of attention. Gee, wonder why?

“For someone the left deems as stupid and irrelevant, they sure give Sarah a lot of attention. Gee, wonder why?”

But the people who truly are stupid and irrelevant get a ton of positive publicity, or at least courteous respect, like Meghan McCain for example.

As for why - I think because they know Sarah’s a contender who can’t be manipulated.

Uh, yeah. World-famous wildlife biologist Gloria Steinem offers us the fruits of nearly eight minutes of Wikipedia research and a quick trip to the Bronx zoo as she informs us that to those of sufficiently advanced political thought, grizzly bears are really furry feminists. Thanks for the input, Gloria.

As for the author, Mzzz Collins insists on "taking back" something she never had: the ability to dictate the terms of discussion. New York intellectuals - wow, what don't they know?

Good thing about feminzais: Most don’t have children. So they are a dying breed.

Love when leftists back Muslims. Ship them to a Muslim state for a few months. Then get back to us.

Looks to me as if they are stay-at-home moms who like to take the kids "shopping" and on field trips. They raise their offspring to be upstanding grizzlies. Too many liberals have been giving them handouts and trying to get them on welfare.

LOL...love how the feminazi’s always refer back to Gloria Steinem, the Geobbels of feminism. You know, the woman that was issued a restraining order against her for physical and emotional abuse of her ex-husband. Now that’s someone to look up to. (/sarc.)
