One of the surprising results of last November's elections was that so many women were victorious. Call the roll of women newly elected to the U.S. House of Representatives: Sandy Adams of Florida, Diane Black of Tennessee, Ann Marie Buerkle of New York, Vicky Hartzler of Missouri, and Martha Roby of Alabama, plus Kelly Ayotte elected U.S. Senator from New Hampshire. But to the dismay of the feminists, most of the victorious women are Republicans. They certainly are not feminists, and the ones I named are all pro-life.
That's not all. Three women were elected governors of their states. Susana Martinez was elected Governor of New Mexico, Nikki Haley Governor of South Carolina, and Mary Fallin Governor of Oklahoma. And of course Jan Brewer, who has become so popular on the immigration issue, was re-elected Governor in Arizona.
This has posed a real psychological problem for the feminists. For years, they've been pretending that they support women being elected to political office, but they certainly didn't mean they wanted Republican women to win.
Another problem the feminists have is Sarah Palin. They don't know what to do about her. Feminist theory is that women are victims who are kept subservient by the patriarchy and can never really be successful. Feminists believe institutional sexism holds women down. You never hear them bragging about successful women such as Condoleezza Rice or Margaret Thatcher. The feminists are positively spooked by Sarah Palin and can't resist attacking her. Their nasty comments about Sarah are not just because she's a conservative, but because feminists feel threatened by the fact that she has a successful career, a cool husband and a bunch of kids. And it's salt in the feminists' wounds that she is pretty, even while wearing glasses.
