I've coined the term "Double Dutch Feminist" to identify women who are jumping between the Feminist and Conservative rope lines, to their own benefit.
One thing about Palin. She might not be able to stitch together a declarative sentence but she sure knows how to fight back.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck said in a speech introducing Palin that anyone who had a problem with pretty women talking about fashion were "deliberately sexist."
If The View is truly like women friends getting together to chat, discuss, dish -- whatever you want to call it -- Ms. Hasselbeck wouldn't be included.
I rarely watch TV news or political talk shows, but last week when I heard that my 7 and 10 year old daughters were singing on Fox News, The View, and the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, I tuned in.
Things like energy and persistence are important, but look at it this way: Would you rather have an energized horse pulling an empty cart or a cart filled with ideas?
I love the McCain campaign's way of confronting reality -- ignore it and make up whatever seems most expeditious, truth be damned. It avoids having to deal with pesky little annoyances like facts.
The meltdown on Wall Street last week wasn't the only one. We got a glimpse of McCain under fire, and it wasn't pretty. America needs a president who provides a steady hand under pressure.
On The View, McCain fed into the argument that conservative "originalists" overvalue the 1789 text and undervalue the Amendments.
This election is about John McCain. And the Obama campaign should reflect that by only talking about this.
This week's campaign sleazefest brought to mind G. K. Chesterton's remark: "If there is one thing worse than the modern weakening of major morals, it is the modern strengthening of minor morals." So the media burns up hours of airtime arguing about "lipstick on a pig," while spending little or no time discussing suicide bombings in Iraq killing and wounding hundreds, the unemployment rate surpassing six percent for the first time in five years, another Wall Street institution teetering on collapse, the lack of political progress in Iraq reflected in the imminent postponement of the planned provincial elections, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff declaring we're "running out of time" to get the war in Afghanistan right, etc, etc, etc. In this topsy-turvy media world, it's only fitting that the week's hardest-hitting political interview was conducted by the ladies on The View.
Last week a mix of water and sanitation experts gathered for World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden to mull over the world's biggest public health crisis. The problem is that not enough people paid attention.
Looking at core limiting beliefs -- which hold you hostage -- embracing your "now" by accepting your past and living a "dream big" life without judging yourself are the keys to reinventing your life.
My jing is out of bling. And no amount of Doritos and NoDoz can revive it . I thought I'd unblocked the energies of the divine when a fen shui consul...
If Michelle truly wants to renegotiate her relationship with the American voter, the changes are going to have to come from within.
Is anyone else as appalled as I am at how quickly we have gone back to thinking of women in the oldest of stereotypes -- as only wives and mothers?
