Scary Mama Grizzlies

Back in the day, when I was younger I used to wonder what the world would be like if a woman was put in charge. Men have done such a bang up job running the world for the past six thousand years or so, I figured what harm could it do? I thought having a woman in charge would mean less war, less bigotry, more love and tolerance… Then along came Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin

Until the half term governor of Alaska was tapped to be the vice-presidential candidate of John McCain in 2008, I never fully realized the potential evilness of women in office.

Halfway through her governorship she abandoned Alaska to make millions of dollars publishing a book, giving speeches and now with the help of the tea party she has been spreading her seed.

Enter the “Mama Grizzly”. Before the upcoming mid-term elections in the United States, Sarah Palin has been throwing her support behind right-wing extremist women over more moderate Republican candidates. Palin called on these “Mama Grizzlies” to do their part in taking back America and defending her like a mother would a cub. Apparently dear old Sarah wants to take America back a century or two.

Here is a sample of some of the Mama Grizzlies along with their beliefs and policies that Sarah Palin is trying to get into office:

Star Parker (California)
•      Believes that the current economic crisis is due to state funded abortions

Sharon Angle (Nevada)
•      Thinks that abortion should be illegal even for victims of rape/incest
•      Wants to abolish the Board of Education
•      Believes in the United States withdrawal from the United Nations
•      Wants to phase out social security
•      Believes job creation is not a senators job

Michelle Bachmann (Minnesota)
•      Believes climate change is “voodoo”
•      Thinks carbon dioxide is “natural” not harmful
•      Wants to abolish the minimum wage in order to wipe-out unemployment
•      Believes in McCarthyism

Christine O’Donnell (Delaware)
•      Believes masturbation is adultery
•      Believes gays can be “cured”
•      Thinks that abortion should be illegal even for victims of rape/incest

Of course these are just some of the beliefs that these exceptionally conservative women have as individuals, they share many more; none of them believe in evolution, government health insurance, gay rights, abortion and paying taxes.

All of them, like Sarah Palin are extremely religious, which leads me to believe that they are less tolerant of other religions. Remember that Islamic community center near ground zero? It never even made the news until Palin opened her mouth.

The only commonality between Mama Grizzlies and grizzly bears is their viciousness and intolerance of people who stand in their way. Sharon Angle actually said “What is a little bit disconcerting and concerning is the inability for sporting goods stores to keep ammunition in stock … That’s why I look at this as almost an imperative. If we don’t win at the ballot box, what will be the next step?” Is she advocating a revolution if they lose?

I can’t understand why the Democrats haven’t started to attack the far right policies of these Mama Grizzlies. Surely there are moderates in the United States who have yet to realize that these women are mentally defective nut jobs; then again I never claimed that politicians of any stripe were particularly smart.

I guess having a woman in office wouldn’t necessarily change the world for the better after all. Call it ignorance on my part I suppose, I should have realized that back when Margaret Thatcher was in power.

  • The only positive i can see coming about from all these right wing extremists & tea party folk, is that hopefully it will divide the right wing. These mama-grizzlies have some ridiculous, fanatical ideals and i hope for the sake of sanity that most people don’t take them seriously. Take a look at this video of Christine O’Donnell and her views on drug testing and genetics.
