My wife, who wants to be a stay-at-home mom and generally shares the same ideology as I do, sent me this article about Nancy Pelosi. She was impressed by Nancy, version 1.0 the "role model" while simultaneously being repelled by version 2.0 and her current politics. I was taken aback by the fact that my wife was so easily wooed by a biased, liberal media. The real Nancy Pelosi is a much different woman than the mainstream media has been making her out to be lately. Despite what she did in her "early years," Nancy Pelosi is now an enormous threat to the traditional family values she is currently capitalizing on to win support.
The email to my wife went something like this:
Yes, she may have been a great role model once... but we can’t forget that she now espouses ideals that encourage the breakup of the family. This is what is ticking me off about this whole thing. She is a die-hard liberal… an activist at heart. She is a San Francisco democrat (generally the most liberal of all) and for the past 20 years has been a champion of causes that would make traditional, conservative women throw-up. The press has been focusing on her past as a stay-at-home mom like it should be heralded as the greatest thing since plastic, while the same press continues to look down upon modern women who choose to stay-at-home. All the while, Pelosi supports gay marriage, the promotion of “independent women’s rights” – which is a euphemism for women who want to have kids without a father – and other agendas such as abortion (even late-term abortion) and the legalization of drugs.But bless my poor wife for having to put up with my crap on a daily basis. If there's truly a role model in the world, then I nominate my wonderful wife who wants to pursue the ultimate role - raising a family at home! She is truly an amazing woman!
She’s a hypocrite who uses traditional American values when it suits her, but who in reality loathes those values she currently claims to represent. Yeah, great woman.
