Ave 2012

Last week I talked about how the Haves strategically use hate as a means of keeping the Have-nots divided.

It occurs to me that there is a certain kind of hate that is particularly important to the Haves: misogyny - the hatred of women. The reason it is so important is that women leaders are a threat to the Hate Paradigm. Across human cultures, the primal image of woman as mother carries with it the emotional response to women as embodiments of compassion and fairness. Historically, women have been the primary leaders of reform through-out the world.

A powerful woman would have the ability to knock down the artificial hate barriers and unite the Have-nots. That is the greatest fear of the Haves -- unity among the Have-nots.

So I offer a prayer:

Ave 2012

Hail Hillary, full of grit
Big Dawg is with you
Steel-spined art thou amongst liberals
Victorious be thy campaign

Holy Sarah, Mama Grizzly
Lock and load, never surrender
Now, and at the day of election


No votes yet

1. Misogyny. Huge issue, not the least of which is how little so many people seem to care about it.
2. Prayers. Well, not my thing, anyway. Except this one.
3. Hillary and Bill Clinton are, in some ways, better than the average Democrat. Yet they are unabashedly part of the problem, re: empire, corporatism, and third-way "bipartisanship."
4. I am repulsed by the left's twin penchants for making Sarah Palin a distraction and for making her into a human piñata. But calling her "holy" and praying for her to "lock and load." WTF?

the 2012 presidential nominees will be Hillary and Palin.

Which I personally think would be awesome. Exploding pundit heads everywhere. And a woman president at last. I think it would take that -- all choices are women, before we would manage to elect one.

I do admire Palin while disagreeing with most of her stated policies, and one of the things I most admires that she never surrenders.

But as to calling her Holy, it's because as a spoof of Hail Mary, which I assumed everyone is familiar with, but that's my fault for assuming:
"Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you, blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen."

I kept the first words of both lines.

I think the left pushed Palin farther right than she ever intended to be. It was a stupid, stupid move.

her record is pretty middle-of-the road and doesn't really match up with the recent rhetoric.
