Who is EMILY?
Many people ask us this. Usually we answer that EMILY's List is a political network for Democratic pro-choice women candidates that raises early money to make women credible contenders. EMILY stands for "Early Money Is Like Yeast" (we help the "dough" rise).
But EMILY's List represents something else -- a promise to all women of the change that comes from electing more women to office. According to one of EMILY's List's candidates for governor, Michigan Attorney General Jennifer Granholm, EMILY is...
EMILY is every woman who has ever sat at a business meeting while someone else took credit for her good work.
EMILY is every young professional whos been told to wait her turn and every seasoned one whos been told she still has to pay her dues.
EMILY is every working mom whos managed to balance a checkbook, whos managed a clean house, a corporate budget and a 12-year-olds basketball tournament in one day. EMILY is every stay-at-home mom who has ever been asked, No, I mean, what do you do? What do you really do?
She is every woman whos ever had to defend her right to be pro-choice. Shes every woman whos ever had to explain her choice not to have a child.
Shes every woman who has ever demanded a raise because shes been doing the same work as the man in the next cubicle for the same number of years and shes still not getting the same pay. Shes every woman who has ever wondered why the company wont cover her contraceptives but will cover that same guys Viagra.
EMILY is every working mom who has ever fought for quality day care or family leave time. She is every woman who has given up a single day of vacation to care for a sick child or a sick parent.
EMILY is every girl in every classroom whose hand was still in the air after the boys got their questions answered.
Shes every athlete whos ever been told, She throws like a girl. Shes every candidate whos ever been asked how she can run for office and have a family at the same time. She is every African-American woman who has had to work three times as hard to be considered as good as her white male colleague. She is every Jewish woman who has ever been called a princess. She is every Hispanic woman who has been asked how long her family has been in this country.
She is every woman who has been called too soft or too strong or too aggressive or too nice or too ambitious to get the job done. She is every woman who has ever been measured against a glossy picture in a magazine.
EMILY is the seamstress who has sewn the graduation gowns for years but has never worn one. EMILY is every woman who helped set up this room today and who will clean up after we leave and that same woman who only wants her daughters to dream big dreams, because EMILY knows that young girls cannot be what they cannot see.
She is you. She may be your next governor she may be your next vice-president she may be your next president. And EMILY doesnt get mad she gets elected!
-- Michigan Attorney General Jennifer Granholm, EMILY's List Majority Council Conference, June 2002
This is from a candidate born in Canada, raised in California, went to school in Berkeley and Harvard, and is part of the Wayne County Dem Machine. Do we want this two faced person in the governor's mansion? I sure don't.
I also don't want the state to be run like Metro Airport.
Luckily, we can make sure this ain't gonna happen. THAT'S WHY I'M VOTING FOR DICK POSTHUMUS.
SAY NO TO JENNY!
The only person who ever attempted to take credit for my work was an 'EMILY' woman. :p
EMILY is everyone who wants to take my gun away for the children.
EMILY is every woman who marries serial killers on death row and praises abortionists.
EMILY is every Rat who excuses Kkklintoon for his actions towards Juanita, Kathleen, Monica, Paula, et al and supports "hostile environment" sexual harassment policies against "lesser" men on our campuses and workplaces.
EMILY is every woman who sees men as walking ATM machines.
Jump in the lake, EMILY; and take Jenny with you.
EMILY is a baby-killer.
If you include Chinese and Indians, many more than half are female.
Love that phrase---good work!
So just take the concept and run with it. Rather than carp about it, it would make sense for Republican women to start their own list. If it works for the left, it should work for the right.
Typically the ONLY people who show up on Emily's List endorsements tend to be ultra-liberal feminazi Dems & RINO New England soccer mommies.
Which is one of the reasons I've been advocating Bush replace "conservative" (actually an odd combo of fringe leftist and libertarian beliefs) Gale Norton ASAP.
