Bachman

I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending." –Rep. Michele Bachmann, suggesting at a presidential campaign event in Florida that the 2011 East Coast earthquake and hurricane was a message from God (Aug. 2011)

"Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too" -Rep. Michele Bachmann, getting her John Waynes mixed up during an interview after launching her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, where she grew up. The beloved movie star John Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa, three hours away. The John Wayne that Waterloo was home to is John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer. (June 2011)

"Why should I go and do something like that? But the Lord says, 'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, recalling in a 2006 speech at a Megachurch in Minneapolis that pursuing tax law wasn't her choice, but she did so at the urging of her husband because she was certain God was speaking through him

"Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009
But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. ... I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly -- men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, botching American history while speaking at an Iowan's for Tax Relief event in January 2011. The Founding Fathers did not work to end slavery, and John Quincy Adams was not one of the Founding Fathers.

Yep that sounds like a strong intelligent women, she is about as sane as your average rw cd poster.


Ann Coulter

"If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women. It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it's the party of women and 'We'll pay for health care and tuition and day care -- and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?'"

"We just want Jews to be perfected, as they say." --arguing that it would be better if we were all Christian

"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."

"You will find liberals always rooting for savages against civilization." –Ann Coulter
"They didn't root for the Nazis against civilization." –Bill O'Reilly
"Oh yes they did. ... It was only when Hitler invaded their precious Soviet Union that at the last minute they came in and suddenly started saying oh no, now you have to fight Hitler." –Ann Coulter, "The O'Reilly Factor," May 7, 2010

The economic philosophy of the right doesn't seem to equate to the best interest of our country's women(except for the Palin's, Malkin's, Bachman's, Coulter's clans of the party. Meaning the ones' being paid to espouse the inanities of their party's philosophy). The healthcare platform the right pushes doesn't seem to equate to the best interest of our country's women(except for those I listed in the previous sentence, or those who are rich themselves or married to someone who is rich), and even then the rights' stance on women's contraceptions and their staunch pro-life platform aren't beneficial to a lot of women(of course that doesn't matter as much if you're a woman who is rich or married to someone rich for you can get the contraceptives or find/afford a doctor for the abortion, it only matters if you feel connected to other women's struggles). The war hawkishness of the right doesn't seem to equate to the best interest of our country's women(except for those who are rich or married to someone rich, because then their children won't have to go and fight). No, the reality of the situation just doesn't seem very favorable to a woman being actually content with the rights' viewpoints.

Why not start a thread on abortion if that's the deal .. instead of railroading..?

I have seen it time and again... conservatives launch threads defending dumb conservative women with a false premise about liberals being "scared" of them.

We are not scared of them; we are laughing at the bone-headed things they say and do. There is a difference.

I don't know that Republican women attract any more liberal ire than Republican men, on average.

A few Republican women have even been rather highly thought of by most Democrats and independents I know: Betty Ford, Elizabeth Dole, Mary Matalin.

What always cracks me up is that they completely miss the point that were it not for the women's movement, they wouldn't have the stage to be public figures.

How they miss that is beyond me.

Is this what liberals think? This is one of the stupidest comments ever!

Does Mary Matalin vote Democrat? Doubful (You do know who she is ... right?)

Oh, so now you (an unbeliever, and a Marxist to boot) are going to tell Christians what we believe, and what the Bible says? You haven't got a clue what you are talking about. This is ignorance raised to a new level.

Laughable. You make a fool of yourself.

Sarah Palin,Michele Bachmann,Michele Malkin; these women don't scare the opposition they are just always in the limelight for some of the more sensationalist comments they make.


But these Republican women; Kay Baily Hutchison (Texas), Olympia Snowe (Maine) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Florida) have real power, they know how to speak with conviction and intelligence. They are not just poster girls for the GOP.
