Democratic Women for Romney*

The Democrats have just released an ad called “Republican Women for Obama”, in which a handful of women explain that they’ve voted Republican their entire lives until this Mitt Romney fellow came along and they decided he was just way too extreme. Also, they’re shocked to discover, after voting Republican non-stop for the last 40 years, that apparently the GOP is opposed to abortion. Who knew?

Prominently featured among these lifelong Republican women is a striking brunette who is aghast to find out that Romney wants to reverse Roe v Wade. This totally Republicanly Republican GOP-type conservative-to-the-hilt woman has since been identified as Maria Ciano of Colorado. She’s a registered Democrat, but don’t let that fool you. Her accumulated Facebook “likes” over the years testify to her rock-ribbed Republicanism. They include Amy Goodman, MoveOn.org, Bernie Sanders, and a Facebook page called “I Love It When I Wake Up In the Morning and Obama Is President”.

Wouldn’t it be easier for the Dems just to hire Tina Fey to star in “Sarah Palin for Obama”?

Why ‘Stop Sanders’?

'Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?” T. S. Eliot asked. “Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” And where is the intelligence we have lost in cleverness? Cleverness is the plague of our political classes, an influenza of the intellect. The consultants are always trying to ... Read More
