Forget WI Lt. Gov. Kleefisch: She May Be A ‘Man With Breasts’

Via Breitbart, Michelle Malkin reports:

The outlook for the unhinged Left’s secondary targets, however, is not so bright. Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, a tea party candidate who is not part of the GOP establishment, is being treated as collateral damage by the party. Outside of Wisconsin, most conservative activists are not even aware that she may be booted from office for simply doing her job. Kleefisch told me that on a recent fundraising swing in D.C., national GOP leaders were shocked to learn of her plight.
While Democratic femme-a-gogues continue their plaintive wailing about a “war on women,” Kleefisch has battled vile misogyny from liberal detractors. When lefty Wisconsin radio host John “Sly” Sylvester accused Kleefisch of performing “fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee” and sneered that she had “pulled a train” (a crude phrase for gang sex), feminists remained silent.

From The Blaze comes word of new-tone failure PA State Rep. Babette Josephs:

The controversial “Women’s Right to Know” bill under consideration in Pennsylvania would require that a woman have an ultrasound before being permitted to have an abortion. The notion has so enraged Democratic State Rep. Babette Josephs that she has openly lashed out at Republican women who support the measure.
At a rally on Monday, Josephs wondered aloud if the women who had co-sponsored the contentious bill were simply ”men with breasts.”

Perhaps the shabby treatment of women in politics is some left-handed indicator that they have ‘arrived’. But do politics have to go all Alinsky, and be an exercise in misogyny and misanthropy?

More to the point, are conservatives going to let Wisconsin turn into a full-on debacle?

    I think it has to do with fighting government with more government, not a good thing to do, it’s another program, more money spent.  What he said is disgusting and should be kicked of the air, who would listen….

    Ok, as a woman, and as a person who believes in equal before the law, equal before the eyes of the Divine Creator, at some point women do have to step up to the plate and resist the trap.

    Which means: if it’s ok to call you a b**ch, fair enough — be woman enough to take it — but that means you get to fire right back at them (while making the protestation that this sort of incivility does us all no good; aka. fight smart and be ruthless with a smile on your face — Bristol Palin gave a good example recently).  No more “OMG…how awful”.  We wanted the right to equally play in the Thunderdome, then we need to realize we’re going to take some lumps.

    I like to think of this:

    Slight brag: but one of mine was in on this; did well, won most of her matches; got her shoulder wrenched by a male instructor during training for the next one.  No regrets, would do it again, realizes she isn’t super-woman — so adapt/improvise/overcome/accept your weaknesses and strengths; feels that if the men are required to do things, than a female soldier should at least step up to the plate and show she’s willing to take her lumps too.  My other kid will be doing them too, when she gets stateside (although she’ll readily admit that combatives are not her forte at all — least she admits it and doesn’t get butthurt if people say she isn’t quite up to that task — and she doesn’t insert herself into such things, because she knows herself).

    Women: recognizing that we are not men, at least show them that we aren’t spoiled brats who want it all baby, but refuse to take our lumps too.

    Just one important point here regarding the ultrasound law. 

    Just so we’re clear… ultrasounds are performed EVERY TIME a woman has an abortion. Why? Because the abortionist has to know how far along in development the baby is, and the location of said baby.

    If, for example, the pregnancy is ectopic (or the fetus has implanted itself inside a fallopian tube) scraping out the uterus will be unnecessary and likely very harmful to the mother.

    What pro-abortionists are REALLY upset about, is the possibility that an ultrasound might educate a woman about what it is she is doing. By their logic, women don’t need this type of education. Why? “Well it might harm them.” How does it harm them? “Well, if they don’t get up off that table and refuse the abortion, they might later feel tremendous guilt about what they did and, after all, ignorance is bliss. Plus we don’t want anyone to get up off that table. We lose money that way.”

    exactly…and of course, then it becomes not an informed choice but one made with only pro-abortion (rather than “choice” brought on by completely free will and informed decision) propaganda running through the woman’s head *had a good friend who essentially allowed these sorts of “feminists” and her good for nothing boyfriend talk her into one this way — it devastated her, they got their payoff; one could say “well, she made the choice”…yes, but when a person is subjected to daily “advice” about how she’s being a good person for not burdening anyone, how this would burden and hurt everyone else…they even brought up how a second kid would financially/time constraint cause her to not ‘love’ her first kid as much, would severely burden him, and she loved her kid…awful, just awful*

    It’s disgustingly Orwellian.
