Now that Grandma Nancy’s going to clean the house and take care of the children,
the Dems are insisting that women aren’t qualified to hold office if they don’t have children: Read about it from Darleen, who lets it rip (language not suitable for work):
Barbara Boxer – Insufferable Bitch*
Newsbusters has the details, and how the media has reacted:
In fact, few of the dozens of stories of Rice’s appearance before the committee even mentioned Boxer’s foolish attack.
I woudln’t call it foolish, but I won’t post in this blog the words I have in mind.
Hot Air has video.
I’ve said it before and I’ll continue saying that women and minorities who do not toe the Liberal line are insulted, mocked, derided and dismissed, no matter what.
The NY Post:
We scarcely know where to begin.
The junior senator from California ap parently believes that an accom plished, seasoned diplomat, a renowned scholar and an adviser to two presidents like Condoleezza Rice is not fully qualified to make policy at the highest levels of the American government because she is a single, childless woman.
It’s hard to imagine the firestorm that similar comments would have ignited, coming from a Republican to a Democrat, or from a man to a woman, in the United States Senate. (Surely the Associated Press would have put the observation a bit higher than the 18th paragraph of a routine dispatch from Washington.)
But put that aside.
The vapidity – the sheer mindlessness – of Sen. Boxer’s assertion makes it clear that the next two years are going to be a time of bitterness and rancor, marked by pettiness of spirit and political self-indulgence of a sort not seen in America for a very long time.
But even to suggest that Condoleezza Rice is not fit to serve her country because she is childless is beyond bizarre.
It is perverse.

does not support restrictions on the availability of abortion, such as late term (“partial-birth”) abortion procedures, and parental notification requirements
