Santorum conveniently blames his wife for his misogyny

I saw that. Actually, he blames evil feminists for being mean to his wife about staying home with the kids, which made Mrs. S all upset, because wimmins are all emotional like that, so she had to steal a draft of his book and write hateful things about working mothers. :roll: Fucking frothy.

No radical feminist told me that the only thing that matters is what I do at work. I think he has feminist confused with another word...like capitalist.

How real 'Manly' of him, blaming a woman for his faults.

Honestly, I'm ashamed that my own gender still blames women for their own mistakes. So old-fashion and obsolete.

Well, I've finally found the ONE thing that Santorum and I agree on. I think fatherhood training programs are a good idea. Otherwise, WTF IS WRONG WITH THIS GUY?

OMG. How could he even say with a straight face that he doesn't remember that quote from his book. It was only the most famous passage from his book, the one that garnered all the headlines when the book came out and that he got grilled on at least a couple of times back then. You would think he would have been prepared to sound less like a nincompoop when asked about it.

Oh, and I think he is one of those idiots who thinks that grossly sexist sentiments are somehow more acceptable if a woman utters it. Umm, no. And besides, he obviously endorsed what she said, even assuming she actually wrote it.

Oh, and don't you love how, in his account, Karen Santorum sounds just like the fundie bloggers we follow. Waaaah, people looked down on me when I quit work, waaaah, it must be the fault of those mean feminists, waaaaah, my ego is clearly more important than other women's interests in legal, social and cultural equality.

For someone who thinks that he's a big manly man, he sure likes to hide behind his wife's skirt a lot.

Hey Santorum, if you're going to spout this garbage, at least have the courage to own it.

Also, how does Santorum's statement that all should have equal opportunity to rise at work make him "the only true conservative" in the race? I'd like to see Josh's cogent political analysis on that,

I took a quick look at the top 100 grossing films of last year - not ONE shows stay-at-home moms as being inferior to working moms. The top film, Harry Potter, shows a SAHM (Mrs. Weasley) as being just as capable as trained warriors in battle. The other top grossing film, Transformers, shows.... well the only female character's work is a source of jealousy for her boyfriend. Then she's kidnapped and has to be rescued. Her having a job is not portrayed as a positive.

So I'm not sure where Santorum is getting his Hollywood-hates-SAHM schtick.

Aside from the obvious sexism, I'd have to say that Santorum isn't qualified because he's an idiot.

If you write it, you own it. Period. Think about how this would fly for a president: "Oh, I don't remember that part of the speech that I gave. My speechwriters must have slipped it in."

I also don't have a lot of patience for anyone making generic attacks against society. Again, own your claims, and do some analysis. It's far more powerful to be able to say, "Just this week, Article A said this, Article B said that, and X organization came out with this statement."

I love these @$$holes who think divorce should be made more difficult. Do they have any idea how stressful and fragmenting divorce usually was in the days before no-fault?

One of my uncles endured a divorce in which each party was urged to pressure friends and relatives to lie in court, making life hell for his kids.

Attempts at covenant marriage have largely failed, except in LA. Jindal was a big proponent of it and yet when the option passed he failed to get remarried under the covenant.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
