Go home, get married to your high school sweetheart and get a degree in Women’s Studies at your college of choice on the GI Bill. Not necessarily in that order since we all know that those college girls can be a wild bunch, popping birth control pills like Tic Tacs. We shall call it VV*-Day, or V2-Day for all you hipsters in the audience (some might try W-Day since two capital Vs do look like a W but then it just sounds like you’re saying ‘Double U’ – day and that wouldn’t make since, even if the U stood for uterus.)
So how did this so-called war end? Two things. First, the GOP backlash against US Senatorial candidate Todd Akin concerning his repugnant remarks concerning rape and his total lack of understanding of female geology biology. I can’t believe some people actually tried to defend what this guy was saying; especially before hearing what Karl Rove had to say about it. What was I was my unpaid intern were they thinking? Akin’s abandonment by the party shows just how wrong many on the left are about where the GOP stands when it comes to women.
The blowback was fierce and devastating, especially from the Romney camp. Romney said the remarks were offensive and inexcusable and when asked earlier in the day if Akin’s should resign from his senatorial campaign, Romney put his foot down firmly, saying that Akin should do what he truly feels in his heart. Ouch. As of today, Akin’s seems to be still stunned by such a blow from the top of the ticket since he seems to not be doing what he truly feels in his heart and says he is staying the race. It’s as if he doesn’t realize Mitt Romney is running office, for Pete’s sake. Hopefully, at the end of the day, Akin’s will take into what the voters of Missouri want in a candidate, especially those who voted for him already in the primary and the ones who previously chose to send him to the US House of Representatives for six terms. Oh, only if there was a way for political parties, during a legitimate PR crisis, to shut the whole thing down. You know, like women have.
Now, the second sign of the Great War coming to an end is the by far more groundbreaking event of the Augusta National Golf Club naming two females to its membership. Yes, after more than a century of being America’s most representative golf course, Augusta National will now allow women as members. And what a pair of women they have invited to break their maidenhead – some member’s wife and Condelezza Rice, former the Secretary of State for the United States of America and presently a person of color. Saying ‘I do’ to the Augusta National’s proposal has made it the happiest now fully integrated golf course in the world. I’m sure they will be happy together.
So, yes, finally this made up pretend war on women by is over and we should not hear anymore from the left. Except for them to maybe explain their war on women as evidenced by their avid support of gay marriage. It’s as if they are telling women that they are not even good enough or pretty enough to marry. I’m waiting.
Update: I may have misspoken earlier. I described one of the two women joining Augusta National as a member’s wife. While she and her husband has been guest of Hootie Johnson ‘s at the golf club, I have yet confirmed that her husband is presently a member. Oh, and his name is Richard Rainwater. So congrats on getting this all on your own, Richard Rainwater’s wife.
