I had this conversation with my dear mother the other day. The only thing you need to know about her is that she was ousted from the county’s Republican party chairmanship when the Pro-life, religious evangelical mystics took over the GOP…
She asked me, and many other people ask me, if I would vote for a woman in a presidential election. Her response has always been, No. My response – Absolutely!
The only problem this go-round is that Ayn Rand, Isabel Paterson, and Rose Wilder Lane are dead, Margaret Thatcher cannot run, my dear mother is still recovering from a series of health ailments, and Ann Coulter is surely too busy making mince meat out of socialists (although I would pay big money to see a debate between Ann and Hillary – can you imagine the scene?).
Perhaps one will surface for the 2012 derby… and I truly hope my dear mother will be around to see it.
