Apparently, We Womynfolk Have Good Reason to Fear Mitt Romney....

If the Blog Princess has learned one thing from the latest spate of political ads to hit the airwaves, it's that we should be deeply afraid of Mitt Romney. Because he has scary, woman hating testicles. And he hates our freedoms.

Every time we turn our TV on, we're confronted with the furrowed brows and anxious natterings of The Sistahood:

"I’ve never felt this way before but it’s a scary time to be a woman," she says. "Mitt Romney is just so out of touch."

The announcer says, "Mitt Romney opposes requiring insurance coverage for contraception. And Romney supports overturning Roe vs. Wade. Romney backed a bill that outlaws all abortion, even in case of rape and incest."

We haven't seen such blatant fear mongering since the 2008 election, when those racist Rethugs just wouldn't let poor Barack talk about the content of his character rather than the color of his skin. Lord knows, the poor man tried to protect gullible voters from the Scary, Divisive Politics of Fear:

I don't know. Could you work the words "fear", "afraid", "scary", and "black" in there just a few more times, Barry? Because I'm "afraid" voters might miss the point.

You know, that you're... like, totally ... black. And the bad, scary Republicans want us to be afraid of you. Because you're so ... black. Even though you're half white. Which we're not supposed to talk about, because that would be focusing on race and you were so hoping we could get beyond that, I know. Damned Republicans. If only they'd quit bringing up the fact.

That you're black. And we should fear you.

Odd tactic, for a man liberals keep saying is so likable and non-threatening he may well be our first woman president. The looming menace must express itself in a disarmingly feminine, non-threatening way.

Which is why the Republicans have to keep reminding everyone of your essential Blackitude and scariliciousness. It's subtle, man. Under the radar, sub rosa, float like a butterfly sting like a bee .... BAM!!! That's what makes you dangerous. You're a dangerous black man, with an Ivy League education. You use words like numchuks.

It was bad enough when Mitt Romney only wanted to turn the clock back to the Stone Age when women were routinely impregnated against their will and forced to procreate for Teh Patriarchy. Yes, that was bad enough, but not as terrifying as the latest troubling revelation about this Deeply Scary Candidate.

Apparently, he can unilaterally overturn Supreme Court decisions, repeal acts of Congress, kill women, and cancel our insurance policies.

With his mind....


Update: The Agony! The Irony!!!

Update – in what must be the pinnacle of irony and cognitive dissonance, an Obama fundraiser and large bundler, Jonathon Lavine, was the head of Bain at the time of the evil layoffs and closing in question. Obama does not shy away from taking donations from Evil, Job-killing Capitalist Pig-Dogs filthy Bain campaign dollars, but earning money from Bain makes you a vulture or vampire.

I tell ya, it's like deja vu, all over again!

When President Obama’s aides said they weren’t familiar with former Missouri steelworker Joe Soptic’s life story, all they had to do was check their own campaign archives.

Soptic, laid off from Bain Capital-owned GST Steel, stars in a Priorities USA Action spot this week in which he tells of how his wife died without health insurance after he lost his job. Soptic also appeared, wearing what appears to be an identical shirt, in a May television ad for the Obama campaign.

...he also told the story about his wife losing her insurance because of heartless Obama campaign Bundler Jonathan Levine Mitt Romney during an Obama campaign conference call:

Exit quotation lie via Obama campaign spokesman Jen Psaki: “[W]e don’t have any knowledge of the story of the family.”

There are professional comics who aren't this funny.

You have to admit, woman having no greater aspirations than to be 'Julia' have reason to fear a Romney presidency - maybe.

".... woman having no greater aspirations than to be 'Julia' have reason to fear a Romney presidency..."

That wins comment of the day!

We've been getting these ads in Iowa for a while.(Lucky us.) Frankly, I thought they were condescending and infantilized women. "Ooohh, it's so scary out there.", "Save me Barak from this horrible Romney", "I can't make it without planned parenthood." "I'm getting the vapors from this Mitt monster."

My wife was insulted over how cringing, helpless and whiny these women were. It is an insipid ad and every American woman should be embarrassed by these fainting flowers.

It will only get worse. Like Obama said in 2008, when you have no record to run on and no ideas to offer, you scare people and make them afraid of the other guy. Unfortunately, the media won't call Obama on this crap and it appears to be working in the polls.

I don't know why "non-threatening" and "feminine" are usually associated in people's minds. Women kill more children and old people than any other group. Arguably, one should be more afraid of someone who can kill a child or defenseless elderly person with no remorse than one who will shoot another man down in the street with no remorse but kill child molesters and wife-beaters for their crimes when he is sent to prison for his.

P.S. Obama's feminine because he's a closet gay. I can't prove it, but if Harry Reid can make unsubstantiated claims,then so can I.

Sal, I heard that Obama's gay too! But then I saw him ride a bike and throw a baseball so now I am convinced that the person who told me Obama is gay, must, absolutely must be telling the truth. Not that being gay is a problem, just what I heard.

And since he killed a bunch of people through his Fast and Furious gunrunning program, ge must be feminine as well!

"I'm getting the vapors from this Mitt monster."

Love that line!

Yep. I'm just waiting for the ad in which they show Romney strapping poor Ann Romney to the hood of his car as he barrels down the road to fascism at 90 mph.
