But all of that aside, Ablow accidentally concedes that the intention of Rosen’s comments was exactly right, suggesting that many of his clients “wouldn’t be going to work for very long if their spouses made millions as investors (as Mitt Romney has done).” If Ann Romney really didn’t go to work, choosing instead to “allow her husband to go out and make the money to support all of them,” why doesn’t Ablow simply agree with Rosen?

UPDATE

Ablow doubled down on his comments in a live Fox News segment today, saying that Rosen “despises” women like Romney for “choosing a traditional lifestyle,” not so subtly implicating that Rosen’s “alternative lifestyle” as a lesbian is chosen as well. Equality Matters has the clip:

Fox News’ Keith Ablow: Working Moms Like Hilary Rosen Despise Thems...

In a new column rife with his usual brand of audacious conjecture, Keith Ablow of Fox News’ Medical A-Team takes aim at Hilary Rosen and all working moms (and arguably all feminists), suggesting they are “anti-gender” and “despise the parts of themselves” drawn to motherhood:

These “anti-gender” women have it in for anyone who embraces her femininity, maternal instincts and capacity to nurture as their highest priority — postponing or passing up other laudable opportunities to work at, say, a law firm or as a marketing executive.  They despise the notion that some women may indeed be drawn — instinctively and happily — toward creating special and loving environments in which to raise their children, while spending all their available time sustaining and enriching those environments and those children.

They despise the parts of themselves that may be drawn to such roles, as well.  That’s why women like Hilary Rosen make such outlandish statements, to begin with.  They’re essentially talking to themselves — albeit, with the rest of the world forced to listen — trying to reassure themselves that their own choices in life weren’t only equally as good as those of other women, but better. Far, far better. They feel like their choices are better because they have thrown off the shackles of roles that were once “expected” of them, leaving them not only freer than, but superior to, those women who don’t feel enslaved at home, but feel fulfilled at home.

Unsurprisingly, Ablow assumes that gender norms are good and haven’t been used to discriminate against women for almost all of humanity. Perhaps he’d like to roll back all of the freedoms women have fought for over the past century so they can fully embrace their “maternal instincts” with nothing to distract them from what he seems to see as their true calling. Ablow, of course, includes a jab at Rosen for being a lesbian, suggesting she’s only capable of supporting “alternative lifestyles.”

As Carlos Maza points out at Equality Matters, Ablow’s column includes all his usual pop-psychology tropes:

  • Violating professional ethics standards by diagnosing a public figure without permission or a formal examination
  • Peddling unscientific and sexist stereotypes about how men and women are supposed to behave
  • Using any excuse to take an unprovoked potshot at the Obama administration

Congratulations, Arizona Women- Every Single One of You Is Now Offi...

By  April 12th, 2012

According to Jan Brewer and the deep thinkers in the Arizona legislature:

Life starts earliest in Arizona, which now defines gestational age as beginning on the first day of a woman’s last period, rather than at fertilization. In practice, that means the state has banned abortions after about 18 weeks (20 weeks from the last menstruation) except in the case of medical emergencies. While that provision has been much discussed, abortions after that point account for only about 1 percent of the procedures currently performed.

The stipulation likely to be most widely felt is what experts are calling an effective shutdown of medication abortions. These nonsurgical abortions are usually performed within the first nine weeks of pregnancy, and account for between 17 and 20 percent of all abortions, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-rights advocacy group. While women often take the pills at clinics and in their homes, the bill now mandates that a medical provider must have hospital privileges within 30 miles of where the procedure takes place. Many times clinics or homes are not within 30 miles of hospitals, and the distance prevents providers from other cities or even states from caring for women, says Elizabeth Nash of the Guttmacher Institute. Another factor that could contribute to what Nash called a “shutdown” of medication abortions is that the law requires abortion pills to be administered using outdated protocols, confusing providers and obscuring proper use of the drugs.

Now that Arizona has decided to separate being pregnant from when you actually become pregnant, every single woman is, according to the law, pregnant the moment they begin their last period, and will remain officially pregnant until the beginning of your very next period. There will apparently be a 1 day window in between these two events in which you are not officially pregnant.

Down the rabbit hole we go.

Sarah Palin picks Mr Communist Under Every Bed West for the Veep slot

Sarah Palin has picked her favorite—Florida’s conservative firebrand Allen West. The congressman, who earlier this year made headlines with his intense anti-Democrat rhetoric, is the former Republican VP hopeful's "going rogue" man for the job.

On Fox News Tuesday, Palin touted West's military experience as well as his understanding of the Constitution and U.S. foreign policy. Encouraging the GOP nominee to avoid a "safe" choice for running mate, the former governor of Alaska noted to Fox's Sean Hannity that the media will beat up whoever’s chosen, rogue or reliable.

The Post-Reality Party

By  April 11th, 2012

Looks like some Republicans are getting a little pushback for their support of the “very serious” Ryan wealth redistribution plan:

Rep. Dan Benishek’s (R-MI) embrace of the Republican Party’s platform ran into stiff opposition at a town hall meeting in Saulte Sainte Marie, Michigan when at least a dozen constituents, many of them senior citizens, pushed back against Benishek’s claims on Medicare, Social Security, oil subsides and health care reform.

***

Benishek also displayed a shocking lack of self-awareness about his level of knowledge of some key facts. “There are no government subsidies for oil,” he told one woman who suggested ending the very real subsidies given to oil corporations to help defray the cost of Medicare. Watch a portion of the town hall:

At one point, the discussion turned to health care reform. Benishek, who served as a medical doctor before he was elected to Congress in 2010, was thrust onto the national stage after his predecessor Bart Stupak cast the deciding vote in favor of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. He told the audience that the United States has the best health care system in the world, before he was literally laughed at by several attendees.

“We have the highest life spans in the world,” argued Benishek. Several women in the audience quickly pointed out that in fact, many countries with universal health care place higher than the United States in terms of life expectancy, including Canada, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. The United States ranks 50th, just behind South Korea and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“I don’t believe that’s true,” said Benishek. “How can you not know that, you’re a medical doctor?” one woman replied.

He has no idea what he is talking about, and I was loving watching the granny-brigade call him a liar and laugh at him. He’s just wrong about everything. We don’t have the highest life expectancy, we most certainly have subsidies for oil and gas (and, in fact, Republicans in the Senate just voted down ending them), and my favorite was the claim that oil companies pay 40% of their income to taxes:

Exxon Mobil, the most profitable of the big five oil companies, made $41.1 billion in profits last year. Although Exxon made 35 percent more profits since 2010, its estimated effective tax rate actually dropped. Citizens for Tax Justice reported Exxon paid only 17.6 percent taxes in 2010, lower than the average American, and a Reuters analysis using the same criteria estimates that Exxon will pay only 13 percent in effective taxes for 2011. Exxon paid zero taxes to the federal government in 2009.

Republicans really are embracing the idea of creating their own reality. It’s truly a bizarre spectacle, when the citizenry is so much more informed than their elected officials.

At the Federal level you have 100 Senators and 435 representatives right?

Red-Baiting

By  April 11th, 2012

Have you no sense of decency Of course he doesn’t:

As many as 80 House Democrats are communists, according to Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).

West warned constituents at a Tuesday town hall event that he’s “heard” that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. West didn’t elaborate beyond that, however, and didn’t offer up any names at the time. There are currently 190 House Democrats.

West spokeswoman Angela Melvin later defended West’s comments—and clarified to whom West was referring.

“The Congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies. The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom,” Melvin said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

I think the best part of this is just how ineffective it will be. Other than some codgers at the VFW and the tricorner hat crowd in the teahadist movement, the fear of communism isn’t part of the current zeitgeist. The wall fell a couple decades ago, and it’s been a long time since anyone has seen a duck and cover video in school. Worrying about Islamic terrorists in our midst might still have a little cachet, but really, communists? Communism lost. Everyone knows that. Instead of calling them communists, he might as well be screaming “THE REDCOATS ARE COMINGTHE REDCOATS ARE COMING!”
