Alternatively titled: Mr. McSweeney finds another tool.
“Father Knows Best” Keeping it in the Family
The former RPV Chairman apparently has a thing for young women who want to play in the big leagues without much experience. He supported Jamie Radtke’s bid for the US Senate when she had never run for office prior, with little accomplishments of note. Now he is said to be the guy behind Susan Stimpson’s bid for Lt. Governor in VA. Susan Stimpson — who? Exactly. One step away from the Governorship? Seriously?
There are plenty of other conservatives with much better credentials already in the race, but I suppose they aren’t as willing to have puppet strings tied to their body parts in the name of liberty. It’s creepy…… This weekend someone sent me an email about McSweeney protege Radtke sauntering into the Advance over the weekend, while the old man hung back in the parking lot. Oh yeah, for sure, these women are totally independent minded. Okey dokey whatever you say!
I was all for replacing “the Establishment” too, not so long ago….until I realized that the other establishment salivating for power in the wings was just as bad. Trust me, there are plenty of political consultants and lobbyists wanting to be paid where they come from too.
Actually, I don’t have anything personally against Stimpson. She certainly has the support of all the Ron Paul folks, who I imagine will run the tables at the convention. What irks me are women who tout themselves as exceptionally independent minded while propped up by scripts drafted by men who wrote scripts for Jesse Helms thirty years ago. I also think it’s kinda odious the way some women role play when it suits their interest. Take for instance, leaning on pro-women PACs while bashing men’s club politics. As a true liberty minded person, I don’t support candidates based on gender or minority status. I support candidates based on policy. If a PAC promoting males was formed, you would expect all hell to break loose. And here’s another shocking reveal: I think men are pretty awesome. Our country’s founding fathers were men. Men have fought for our freedoms. Men work in coal mines and in steel mills and put food on the table. Yet, the current trend of men bashing in Hollywood and politics is pretty disgusting. War on women?? Hardly. It’s more like a war on men. News flash for ya. Women aren’t better just because of their lady parts you know. Cases in point: Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters.
In an interview, Stimpson touted her confusing views on gender…..See, she wishes she had a wife, but is glad no man asks her to go get coffee:
She said that gender doesn’t differentiate on the Stafford board.
“My male colleagues have treated me 100 percent professionally,” said Stimpson, 41. “No one has ever asked me to get their coffee.”……
………Female leaders agree that gender isn’t, and shouldn’t be, part of the discussion, but it does add to each elected leader’s perspective.
At the downtown lunch, she jokes that when staff and supervisors were once trying to plan a 3:30 p.m. meeting, her reply was that she doesn’t have a wife to pick up her children from school.
Interesting, that she says gender doesn’t matter, given how she started her speech at the Advance this past weekend:
So apparently, gender doesn’t matter until…..it does. You know, because men are basically lazy and incompetent. If it weren’t for women, who would bring men their beer on the couch and vacuum up the cheetos on the floor? Right, Susan? Oh, I know, it’s just a joke.
Kind of gives new perspective to the “my old ball and chain” remark men used to laugh at, and women thought so degrading back in the day. Here’s another thought …. that controlling father figure in the parking lot? Happens to be a man! And he’s pretty good at getting women to clean up after him.
