One would expect the left to have some manner of propriety in their professional publications, but we are speaking of liberals. I came across an article over at Michelle Malkin’s site and found a piece regarding one Mark Morford who is a columnist at the San Francisco Gate newspaper. Mr. Morford wrote an article regarding his friend who is “…brash and funny and who spoke her mind without the slightest reservation, and who could drink and think and opine with the strongest of men…” and her perplexing admiration of Laura Bush.
Mr. Morford is perplexed by this because he views Mrs. Bush as:
“…out on tour recently with her twin Styrofoam peanut daughters, Jenna and Barbara, promoting a new children’s book they all apparently, and yeah right, wrote together and isn’t that sweet. There is Laura, looking exactly as she has looked for the past eight insufferable years. Prim, a bit glassy, reserved, her hair some sort of ironclad helmet of awkward architecture, the very epitome of nice, meek, domestic Republican female, not making the slightest wave and hoping no one really notices because, well, she’s just a woman.”
Notice how Mr. Morford transfers his own hatred of women to Mrs. Bush in the guise of criticism. By implication he is stating that women like Mrs. Bush are dysfunctional and somehow defective. As such, her life is pointless and her achievements are meaningless. That a business such as the San Francisco Gate would allow him to publish this material is beyond understanding. That is, until you recall that they themselves are liberals and agree with his assessment. This distorted view of reality is what perplexes conservatives. It is as if the liberals have said that they reject reality and substitute their own. Perhaps this is simply the legacy of the sixties in that the drug induced torpor of their parents created today’s skewed version of the world.
Regardless, Mr. Morford has no idea of the hornet’s nest he has so brazenly disturbed. Conservative women are prim and proper ladies until you have gotten on their bad side. When angered, these women would give a Spartan soldier pause. A fact that you are no doubt being introduced to as I write, since Mrs. Malkin included your papers contact information in her article. In order to preclude the inevitable search for said information at Mrs. Malkin’s page I have included it below:
