Let me preface this by saying that I am not a Romney fan. At all. However, when a moron like Hilary Rosen opens her mouth and says "Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life" because she's a homemaker...well.

Thankfully, Rosen was promptly eaten alive in the media, which has been nice to watch. And certainly Romney had plenty to say for herself. Which leads to this wonderful article:

I'll let you read for yourselves what the author has to say, though I think you'll enjoy it. My takeaway from all this, however, has been my increasing certainty that the only real feminists are conservatives. The fact that there's still the occasional attack on Sarah Palin (who isn't even running for anything and didn't deserve it when she was), Babette Josephs claiming pro-life women are "men with breasts," and now Rosen's comments add up to a disgusting picture of institutionalized misogyny running rampant in the Democratic party. How they managed to sell themselves as pro-women I will never figure out.

I'm 100% with you on this. It's asinine how not only belittled, but even objectified women of the right are by the left. I really do not fully understand at ALL why feminists align themselves with the left. I've concluded that the only reasons could be a. abortion, bc they don't want to be judged for their choice to murder their own child and want it championed instead as a beautiful expression of freedom, or b. they aren't really feminists at heart, just leftist activists looking for a cause to call their own. If they were true feminists, they wouldn't have stood for HALF the things said about Sarah Pain and her family, ESPECIALLY her daughter. They're absurd, and as far as I'm concerned, completely void of any credence. Even beyond that, in some situations, they are an embarrassment and showcase of failure among women.
