That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Courting the Hillary Vote

with 5 comments

Janet Reno's love child? OK I have to admit, that's pretty funny.

Every now and then I like to reach out to the Hillary Clinton supporters who still aren’t supporting Obama.  I know that we don’t agree on most of the issues, but don’t let that stop you from supporting McCain.  As Republicans we learned a long time ago that if we relied only on people who agreed with us to support us we would never get the educated voter and we’d be doomed to be a minority party.  We must reach out and expand our base and that is where you come in.

There are two organizations I want to tell you about.  One is called COUGAR (It stands for Cut Obama Up Get A Republican).  This is an organization of brave women who have united to say that punishing Obama for any slights we found in the mainstream media is far more important than who will govern this country for the next four years).  All I can say is, “Right on” sisters.  The other group is Women For McCain.  I can’t urge you enough to take a look at their fine website for a woman’s viewpoint on why you should support McCain for President.

Critics of McCain are going to try and distract you from the issues.  They’ll point out the way he cheated on his first wife in order to marry the current Mrs. McCain, but let’s be honest after her car accident she got fat.  Would you really expect your husband to stay with you if you became a fattie and a wealthy heiress was interested in him?  It seems to me Carol McCain had a lot more to worry about with her debilitating pain than pleasing her man and that is more the pity.

Then there are the comments like offering up his wife in an X Rated beauty contest, or joking about women who get raped by gorillas, or calling his wife a cunt, or laughing when a questioner at a town hall meeting called Hillary a bitch, or joking about beating his wife, or voting against equal pay for women with the excuse that women should get jobs in coal mines, or said Chelsea Clinton was ugly because her father was Janet Reno, but remember John McCain was a POW.  These attacks only exist to distract you from the real issues.  McCain’s stand on the three issues most important to women and to Hillary supporters should supercede any disagreements with McCain on social policy or the economy or the Supreme Court.

1. You don’t like Obama and neither does John McCain.  This is the ultimate sympatico.  Together, we can show Obama not to take women for granted.

2. Inheritance Tax – Let’s face it women live more than men.  They face a much heavier burden from the inheritance tax.  McCain wants to drop it to 15%.   Odds are you’re going to outlive your husband you might as well enjoy it.

3. Jobs – Yeah McCain isn’t big on equal pay for women, but with his robust foreign policy and openness to bringing back the draft who do you think gains?  Contrary to popular opinion the most liberating times in this country for women in the workforce weren’t the 70s and 80s, they were World War I and World War II.  When the men are overseas those jobs still need to get done and that means better jobs and better pay for women.  If we’re in Iran next year and Russia 2 years after that, McCain will completely shatter the glass ceiling once and for all.

Let’s not allow the Democrats to distract us from what’s really important.  A McCain White House will be the best thing that’s every happenned to women in this country.

  1. As usual, Nate, you have your finger on the pulse of American women. As you can see below, McCain is really helping advance the cause of women, world peace, and marital harmony by sending his lovely wife to Georgia — a country named after a woman. I’m glad my wife is a COUGAR!

    SACRAMENTO — Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, is headed to the Republic of Georgia, where tensions between the government and Russia have sparked international concern and have become an issue on the presidential campaign trail.

    McCain announced to a group of fundraisers in Sacramento that his wife was headed to the country, but the campaign did not provide any details about the trip.

    McCain has been very aggressive in his condemnation of Russia’s invasion of Georgia, and his campaign has been critical of Obama’s more measured response when Russian tanks first pushed into the country.

  2. What can I say? McCain is more of a feminist than I’ll ever be! And a patriotic feminist at that! Obama definitely has to do much more regarding women other than calling them “honey” if he wants to catch up with McCain.

  3. I had a delusional moment where I was hoping that when Chelsea Clinton walked out to introduce her mother, she would have paused and said: You know a few years ago when I was a teenager and my daddy was the President of the United States, John McCain thought it was really funny to tell a joke about how the reason I was so ugly was because my father was Janet Reno.”

    And then just pause and let the room absorb how hateful a joke that truly was, how it disrespected her father, the sitting President, her mother by pretending she was a lesbian, how he disrespected Janet Reno as an unattractive single female despite her enormous accomplishments, and finally by how he had not a thought or a moment of empathy for a young person going through an awkward phase. Oh, how I wish she had said it and let the true John McCain be revealed for all the world to see.
