Barack Obama Hates Your Mom

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Stop insulting moms BARACK OBAMACoffee to wash down the valium, amirite? Sure, this is from yesterday, and the RNC clearly isn’t aware the news cycle has already changed. But we particularly liked that their patented guilt-by-guilt is calling out one Barack Hussein Killyourmama as personally going around insulting women’s choices, because everyone knows that is just a thing that he does. Yep, a CNN employee said on CNN some bullshit about stay-at-home moms and everybody in le Prez’s orbit immediately dropped whatever shit they were doing (we’re sure it was nothing important) to condemn it, up to and including the First Lady and President Stalin, but the lady in this stock photo is SO MAD you guys, at Obama just cold going up to her, individually, and asking her if she really thinks she needs that brownie.

And then he started being all underminery and on the side of that condescending witch Sherry at book club, saying, like, “She just really has high standards you know in the way kids are raised and maybe thinks you’re … well [trails off].”

Yup, that’s him all right. Anyway, everybody knows the only good “choice” to make as a mom is to stay at home, because “child abuse.” So just don’t be a working mom (unless you’re Sarah Palin) or a single mom (unless you’re Bristol Palin) and you can make any choice that you like! [GOP]

"Barack Obama Hates Your Mom"
He does? And my mom voted for him!

finallyhappy April 13, 2012 at 12:44 pm

My mom didn't but she was dead- although that shouldn't have stopped her as she is buried in Philadelphia

Gratuitous World April 13, 2012 at 12:45 pm

mine too – must be that mother's unconditional love. she knows he'll grow out of that dickish teen phase eventually.

Lascauxcaveman April 13, 2012 at 12:49 pm

My mom didn't, but she's coming around. I was heartened to hear at our big Easter dinner gathering that she was "disgusted" with the current crop of GOP leaders. I had to crack wise, "Glad to see that you're finally paying attention, Mom."

Not that it means anything electorally in my very blue state, but if my cloth-coated Republican mom can see the light, then there's a pretty good chance Mitt is going to lose the nice-old-lady vote nationwide in 2012.

And it didn't come up specifically, but I think she's *finally* stopped listening to Rush Limpballs; having been turned off but the whole slut-name-calling thing. So uncivil.

hagajim April 13, 2012 at 12:57 pm

My mom voted for him once – she won't in 2012 – but only because she passed away. Maybe we can get Rahm to add her to the Chicago voter rolls?

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:34 pm

One of our elderly relatives was in the hospital right before the last presidential election and he insisted an absentee ballot be brought to him there. One of the last things he did before he passed away was to vote for Obama and he said that he was proud to do so. Ethnic white man who worked all his life in the Pittsburgh steel mills and had the broken body to prove it. Bless him.

Jukesgrrl April 13, 2012 at 6:35 pm

What a great story. My father was a steelworker, too. Unfortunately, he wasn't quite so enlightened. My mother used to say her most important job in life was canceling out his vote. When she voted for Obama in the first presidential election after Dad died, she said, "This is the first election in which my vote actually counted."

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 1:10 pm

My Mom voted for him, but she'll vote for anyone.

MissNancyPriss April 14, 2012 at 2:45 am

Ha

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:31 pm

My Mom did, as well.

She also prays for him every day, particularly his safety given the number of wingnuts in this country. Given a couple of glasses of wine, she'll start talking about Obama and "what they did to the Kennedy boys". Tears often follow that line of thought.

Geminisunmars April 13, 2012 at 1:40 pm

What did Obama do to the Kennedy boys?

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:48 pm

The perils of trying to relay a wine soaked line of thought.

Geminisunmars April 13, 2012 at 1:56 pm

I knew whatyou meant, but I…did somebody say wine?

Biff April 13, 2012 at 1:32 pm

That's another thing President Obama and I have in common.

GOPCrusher April 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm

My Mom doesn't vote, thankfully. And she refers to the President as "that god-damned nigger, Obama."

Jukesgrrl April 13, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Keep her busy in November. She sounds like she might like some of the current GOP crop of candidates.

nounverb911 April 13, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Are the republicans proposing that stay at home moms get Social Security benefits yet?

freakishlywrong April 13, 2012 at 12:56 pm

No. Only mothers who exercise choice, because they're wealthy enough to stay home "work".

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Or health care?

Biff April 13, 2012 at 1:53 pm

They already do, but only if they're members of the First Wives Club in good standing.

OC_Surf_Serf April 13, 2012 at 12:40 pm

But Herman Cain would love to spend more time with your mother…

Callyson April 13, 2012 at 12:50 pm

She wants a job right?

OneYieldRegular April 13, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Herman Cain would love to spend more time with your stock photo mother.

Native_of_SL_UT April 13, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Motherfucker.

Jus_Wonderin April 13, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I doubt the Conservatives realize that most Mom's can see through this shit screen.

Operalala April 13, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Can't imagine they're even trying – amusing the choices that went into that banner – clumsy apron, and a baby as boy as you can make a baby look. Sorta psycho-looking mom, too.
Guessing the idea is to guilt men into voting republican for the sake of women.

Native_of_SL_UT April 13, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Love the subtle "get back in the kitchen, bitch" dog whistle messaging there. Wonder if this woman is pregnant and barefoot too..

Millennial Malaise April 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Can they though? I want to believe you but how sure are you that this bullshit won't work? I can't remember how effective those Swift Boaters for Truthiness were but that seemed like any equally stupid pander considering Kerry was an actual medaled veteran.

Chet Kincaid April 13, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Ask your Mom.

Millennial Malaise April 13, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Well obviously, my mom's too smart to fall for this. She raised me socialist and agnostic for Christ's sake!

But it's hard to keep the faith (har har) in this electorate especially since Fox et al probably won't let this die EVER since Romney is polling so poorly and then they'll forget about the laws in MS and AR cause those aren't swing states and the Dems/Librul Media will be too nice to bring it up again, but the Rethugs have no sense of holding back. And You know how much Republican's love white ladies and babies! This stupid ad is full proof! And then Obama loses in Nov! Ack!

I don't know why but I'm just kind of freaking out about this.

Chichikovovich April 13, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Well, yeah, that worked, but largely because Kerry really had a lot of Vietnam-era soldiers angry at him over various post-Vietnam comments, and that meant they were not inclined to step up to the plate to defend him.

This seems more in the category of moronic themes that didn't gain any real traction, like the "lipstick on a pig" — OMG! Obama called her a pig!" or "Here's your free tire gauge because Obama totally has nothing but inflating tires as an energy policy and nothing else!!" that fooled nobody except the 27%ers who would believe anything contra Obama.

George Spelvin April 13, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Also, Kerry let it get away from him before responding. Somehow, I don't see that happening with Team O.

heathenette April 14, 2012 at 9:40 am

AND the GOP stoled the election and Kerry didn’t fight about it. So it didn’t really work.

Gainsbourg69 April 13, 2012 at 4:19 pm

They can try to paint Obama as a mommy hater all they want, but he's not the one pandering to the far right by making women out to be moochers for wanting their health insurance to cover contraception or by saying he'll defund planned parenthood. When these issues come up during the election, and they will, Romney will have to repeat what he said during the primary and women will see who is who.

Jukesgrrl April 13, 2012 at 6:39 pm

And technically speaking, Michelle Obama is a stay-at-home mom, too.

fuflans April 13, 2012 at 1:39 pm

oh please. these people don't believe in EVOLUTION.

plus, you know, the president is a blah.

slithytoves April 13, 2012 at 12:41 pm

My mom, who worked part time as an RN raising four kids while my dad was constantly deployed overseas says, "Rich people, shut your fucking mouths." Really, what a mouth for an 80 year old.

Callyson April 13, 2012 at 12:51 pm

I learned how to curse from my grandmother. She was a real pro.

not that Dewey April 13, 2012 at 1:04 pm

My mother is 65 and an ER nurse and says "fuck you, republicans"

She and I went to see Barry speak in Oct 2008. She had just flown in and driven the hour from the airport to my house, and I said "get in the car, Mom! We're going to see Barry!" She loved it.

slithytoves April 13, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Nurses are something else – my mom still calls me up everyday to tell me a dirty joke. God bless 'em!

Geminisunmars April 13, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Gah – you are making me miss my Mom. She was the master (mistress?) of the double-entendre.

slithytoves April 13, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Sorry Geminis… :(

fartknocker April 13, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Tell your mom that she's a cool lady.

Maman April 13, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Um. I am home with my out of control teen. Does this mean that I am unknowingly a Repug? ((…. shuddering…))

Geminisunmars April 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Nah. If your were a repug you'd have him incarcer… woops, I mean enrolled is a special boarding school that you could afford.

BerkeleyBear April 13, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I'm at home with a teen and a seven year old, and doing my best not to ignore whatever they are getting up to (the fighting, once started, won't stop and none of us really wants that). So I guess I'm voting double for the Dems, since my wife is off at her "job" leaving me here with them.

Chet Kincaid April 13, 2012 at 4:59 pm

But your wife provides you with dressage horses and a quaint shed at the back of your acreage where you can throw pots and vases, right?

BerkeleyBear April 13, 2012 at 9:53 pm

More like she keeps a stack of pots and vases to throw at my head if her dinner tastes too much like what a dressage horse leaves behind.

Chet Kincaid April 14, 2012 at 9:41 am

Well-played, Lord BerkeleyBear!

pdiddycornchips April 13, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Have you threatened your teen with a week at the Marcus Bachmann re-education camp nearest you? If not, you're at best a RINO.

starfanglednut April 13, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Insert "your mom" joke here.

LabRodent April 13, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Your mom is so stupid she voted GOP. (haaaay oooo)

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Your mom is so slutty, she married Newt Gingrich.

BaldarTFlagass April 13, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Your mom is so slutty, she divorced Newt Gingrich.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Your mom is so disease ridden, she was divorced by Newt Gingrich.

Pop_Socket April 13, 2012 at 1:36 pm

That's what your mom said.

DetectiveGrey April 13, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Your mother is so fat that when she went to the doctor, he warned her that she was at an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease.

DetectiveGrey April 13, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Your mother is so overweight that only seven of her would fit on an elevator because eight would violate the elevator's safety inspection standards for maximum allowable weight.

DetectiveGrey April 13, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Your mother is so obese that when she shops at the store for clothing, she has to head over to the 'plus-size women' department in order to find clothes that fit her properly.

DetectiveGrey April 13, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Your mother takes such poor care of her physical health that when she steps on the scale, it's unable to register her weight properly because it's a cheap Wal-Mart bathroom scale that only goes up to about 260 pounds.

DetectiveGrey April 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm

And she exceeds that amount by an unknown margin.

Generation[redacted] April 13, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Yo momma so fat every time she goes to McDonalds they have to update the "Billions served" sign. Now she can't get health insurance because she has a pre-existing condition.

mrpuma2u April 13, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Your mom is so conservative she told Glenn Beck "Get a haircut, ya dirty hippie"

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 2:34 pm

You know, Glenn Beck has never denied raping and killing his mom.

AlterNewt April 13, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Mommy blog indeed.

Dudleydidwrong April 13, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Barry, this hatred thing just has to stop. My Mom is in her 90s and she voted for you and gave money to your campaign. So make sure that you make up to her and "Like" her on Facebook and keep sending her those Socialist checks and other guv'mit thingies. Let Mittens do the hate stuff–he's much, much better at it than you are and to him it comes natural-like, as for all true Repubes.

Barb April 13, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I hear Barack is also trying to take away our driver's licenses. There is no road from the bedroom to the kitchen, so we shouldn't need them.

James Michael Curley April 13, 2012 at 12:54 pm

But now you have a car garage to take the Escalade upstairs.

Barb April 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Well, the elevator wasn't the first choice. We had an ill fated Escalade escalator idea that really made no sense.

James Michael Curley April 14, 2012 at 9:11 am

When I was in college in 1971 Duquesne University’s Music School had a plaza out front that had a short very shallow stair case. (Pittsburgh, hills with stairs a little like SF) I made $20 and free beer at all the upcoming frat boy keggers by betting them I could drive my car up the stairs. It was a 1947 MG-TC with 19 inch wire wheels so it was a piece of cake.

Barb April 14, 2012 at 9:34 am

Oh God! I would have paid good money to see you do that.

Fare la Volpe April 13, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Not like you could even read the streets signs in the first place!

sullivanst April 13, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Of course, reading street signs isn't that much help anyway when you can't read a map either.

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 13, 2012 at 12:44 pm

This post would be better if it had a dick shaped geological formation.

DetectiveGrey April 13, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Moms do work. Ann Romney, not so much.

RedneckMuslin April 13, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Mom libel! It's a lot of work hiring a nanny.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Having Sex with Mitt can't be that easy either. I'm pretty sure she has to do all the work.

Pop_Socket April 13, 2012 at 1:37 pm

It's all in the Magic Underwear.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 1:38 pm

That's what she said!

Generation[redacted] April 13, 2012 at 1:48 pm

It's called management experience. Something a lot of working moms don't have.

Abbystinence April 13, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I beg to differ. I myself am a Home Executive and I work really hard all day ensuring that my house is spick and span when my unzipped husband (he is actually just like my sixth son) gets home from work. I have to do really dirty jobs like making sure Rosario cleans the bathroom and one night a week I have to load the dishwasher full of icky used dishes. I also have to make sure the white wine is cold and the red wine is out of the cellar, and that the car elevator is properly serviced. I supervise not only Rosario, but also Ilga, the nanny, and Manuel, the gardener, and Betty, the cook. I keep up to date on all the professional journals in my field, like Good Housekeeping and Family Circle, and I have to shop oh so very often. It's such hard work, especially now that my youngest is 29, and I'm happy that people like Mrs. Romney are speaking up for us in the trenches at home.

BaldarTFlagass April 13, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Big deal. Dweezil Zappa's guitar wants to kill yer momma.

C_R_Eature April 13, 2012 at 12:57 pm
Steverino247 April 13, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Plooking reference for the WIN!

When I see Dweezil in July, I'll have to ask him what the fuck is up with his guitar wanting to kill my momma. Seriously.
http://www.dweezilzappaworld.com/pages/dweezilla

C_R_Eature April 13, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Hey, good for you! He'll probably sign your guitar, or something.
The last time I say him there was a 10 year old girl in the audience who saw every one of the shows and loved them. He made a point of seeing her post show, signing her ticket and having his picture taken. Cool guy.

Steverino247 April 13, 2012 at 2:22 pm

He certainly is. He could run off stage, but instead he jumps down into the crowd, talks to people,signs autographs, etc. until EVERYONE has something signed or gets a hand shake. I even e-mailed his mother and told him what a nice young man she raised, so take that (!) you GOP bastards. LOL!

I'm learning flute, but I just want to be around creative people for a week instead of the People of Family Law I mentioned elsewhere.

Fare la Volpe April 13, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Shorter GOP:

"Ladies! With the Republicans you can be housewives… And nothing else!"

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 13, 2012 at 12:56 pm

I'm pretty sure whore is an option too.

Fare la Volpe April 13, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Silly Doggie. Women are not rentboys.

Millennial Malaise April 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm

That distinction is reserved for the rent boys.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 12:46 pm

But, didn't Alan West say that up to 30% of all Moms are card carrying Commies?

Or am I getting my news cycles all messed up?

freakishlywrong April 13, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Yep. That hateful comment was far less incendiary than a librul suggesting the wife of a gazillionaire may not be the best spokesperson for the average working mother.

Barb April 13, 2012 at 12:46 pm

How many women does it take to change a light bulb?
None. Let the bitch cook in the dark

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 13, 2012 at 12:47 pm

I was a latchkey kid so my mom is pretty much evil incarnate.

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Yeah, but think of all the interesting and horizon-broadening TV shows you got to watch that she'd have turn off.

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 13, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Nope, we lived too far out of town to get cable and this was pre-Internet. I was pretty much limited to the neighbors dirty magazines and lighting stuff on fire.

BlueStateLibel April 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

I guess moms work, if you consider "watching their afternoon stories" on the teevee "work."

Chet Kincaid April 13, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Haha, Preacher Dad and his secretary used to watch "General Hospital" on a little black and white TV in the basement when I stopped by the church on the way home from school, in the early '70s. This was quite un-Fundamental, since in the '50s, he didn't let my older siblings watch TV at all.

Jukesgrrl April 13, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Luke and Laura got married, so it wasn't too sinful.

nounverb911 April 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Some of her best friends are Nannies.

Callyson April 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

And the Reeps accused *us* of milking the War on Women? At least we were/are fighting against godawful policy proposals. They are making coffee mugs over one person's ill advised remark? One for which she apologized, and from which Obama distanced himself? Unlike Mittens, who stood by the slut shaming and the birth control brouhaha and had to think about whether he supports the Lilly Ledbetter act?

On behalf of my mom (RIP, mom), who worked outside and inside the home, you bet your ass I'm voting…Democratic, that is…

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:37 pm

That mug comes with the stink of desperation on it at no additional cost.

pdiddycornchips April 13, 2012 at 4:58 pm

This is how the Republicans do things. They want control of all the female lady bits because they think women can't be trusted, A Dem lobbyist insults Mittens' wife. Even steven! The "women" issue is now off the table.

freakishlywrong April 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Oh. This fucking shit.

BaldarTFlagass April 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

GAAAAH! God I hate these motherfucking motherfuckers with the motherfucking heat of 10,000 motherfucking supernovas!!

C_R_Eature April 13, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Look on the bright side. This is all they've got.

dinkybossetti April 13, 2012 at 3:22 pm

I first scanned this as, "the heat of 10,000 vaginas," which seemed apt.
It might be time for me to stop trying to be a speed-reader.

nmmagyar April 13, 2012 at 4:01 pm

I think that makes it even betterer.

reliefsinn April 15, 2012 at 10:39 am

But wait, I think Mittens is preparing an apology, bit late though, pal, for LimpDick's insults to women, from Sandra Fluke going all the way back to Chelsea Clinton. You know, I would still hate them as much.

metamarcisf April 13, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Since taking office, Obama has fired 92% of the stay-at-home moms in congress who are communist because they have never worked a day in their lives.

anniegetyerfun April 13, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Woah, news of the week round-up! So succint. I love it.

freakishlywrong April 13, 2012 at 12:50 pm

HOW did this become Obama's problem again, media?

Fare la Volpe April 13, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Because it has to happen on both sides.

Geminisunmars April 13, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Somebody named HILARY said something something about somebody that was construed to be vaguely anti-woman, somehow.

MissNancyPriss April 14, 2012 at 2:47 am

Someone said something.

littlebigdaddy April 13, 2012 at 12:50 pm

In my line of work I have the occasion to be around 20-something women quite a lot. (No, not what you're thinking, perverts). They have all said that for them and everyone of their generation the idea of being a stay-at-home mom is not even remotely on their radars. (Admittedly, I have not spoken to the subset of millionaire Mormon women). So, however this plays out in the current election, the best possible outcome for the goopers is some short term gain in exchange for long-term erosion of the party brand. If they do win this election due to an economic downturn or the like, the victory will be Pyrrhic indeed.

noodlesalad April 13, 2012 at 12:51 pm

I'm hoping the Mayans were a few months late with their predictions. Can't……last…..until……November…….

gullywompr April 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

And when Mom plops downs on the couch for that mid-afternoon break, she envisions Barak swaggering down the carpet to tell the nation that he just iced Usama Bin Laden, his posture full of confidence, his eyes gleaming… and her fingers wistfully drift southward.

starfanglednut April 13, 2012 at 1:18 pm

That's HAWT.

mavenmaven April 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Don't let Obama insult women, just let the GOP regulate women back into their place.

Oblios_Cap April 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

The GOP is like a bunch of little schoolboyz, thinking they're all clever and shit. "Send me $15 to show those nasty liberals".

At least they're too scared ot wear hoodies. So they're really less than Chavs.

finallyhappy April 13, 2012 at 12:53 pm

no one said anything about real stay at home moms- someone said something about rich bitch Ann Romney. And of course, she worked at home- supervising a large staff of household help is not easy even with a really excellent housekeeper-and then they go wrong. you find something not placed in exact order in your closet(that teal shirt is next to the Kelly green instead of the aqua!) or one night at dinner, there are no quail eggs in your consomme. You have to tell the housekeeper to fire the laundry maid or the cook and find a new one.

Geminisunmars April 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Well, to be fair, good help is hard to find.

PubOption April 13, 2012 at 3:46 pm

And good, legal help is even harder to find.

freakishlywrong April 13, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I believe that Moms do work and can’t stand liberals who think that Moms don’t. To show my support for the hard work done by Moms everywhere and to help defeat elitist liberals like Barack Obama, I would like to purchase a “Moms Do Work” travel mug.
Do they really think other that the 26% ANYone is buying this horseshit?

Edit: and they're calling Obama an "elitist"? Compared to RMoney, he's a hood rat.

Terry April 13, 2012 at 1:39 pm

It was very elitist of Obama to have a single mother and be raised in large part by his grandparents.

pdiddycornchips April 13, 2012 at 5:03 pm

" I would like to purchase a “Moms Do Work” travel mug. "

Don't forget, 90% of every dollar raised will be used to control what goes into your vagina. For Freedom!

I am hereby declaring this whole stay at home/don't stay at home thing a non-gender-specific issue, so that we can start discussing what the real problem is: how a parent is supposed to be able to raise a fine, upstanding future member of the community while still paying the bills. Moms can stay at home. Dads can stay at home. Adoptive uncles 3 times removed can stay at home. If they have the financial means to do so. This isn't a gender issue. This is an economic issue. A 99% versus the 1% issue. Where the hell is that conversation?

Sorry. I got a little cheesed off this morning when Mika refused to engage my dear sweet little love muffin Jonathan Capehart on that very topic on "Morning 'Drink Your Starbucks Or You're Un-American' Joe." Yes, Mika. We know you work hard at mommying and the rest, but address the economic issue regarding choices that you have, but others don't. Sheesh.

Fare la Volpe April 13, 2012 at 1:12 pm

I get so tired of how spineless Mika can be. I know she's trying to be taken seriously as a journalist in her own right and not as her father's daughter, but part of being a journalist is finding the real story, not parroting what your co-host or the rest of the twatosphere are bitching about.

Chet Kincaid April 13, 2012 at 1:59 pm

She likes it that way, and that's how Joe's going to give it to her.

MoeDeLawn April 13, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Sadly, Mika is never going to get there. I had some hope for her, but she just doesn't have the spine OR the journalistic chops to do that job. Well, not THAT job. THAT job is the role of Margaret Anderson (Jane Wyatt), Joe Scar is Jim Anderson (Robert Young), and Willie Geist is Bud (Billy Gray). Joe Knows Best.

Chet Kincaid April 13, 2012 at 1:55 pm

I am still waiting for offers from Ladies Of Means so that I can enjoy that sweet lifestyle of horses, vacation homes, secluded cottages where I can do my art and record my demos, vegetable and flower gardens, domestic staff management, and frequent foreign flyaways. BYOKids, and I'll supervise their upbringing!

(For snark purposes only, Mrs. Kincaid and I are perfectly happy looking forward to our retirement with dread.)

Sue4466 April 13, 2012 at 3:30 pm

It'd also be nice to discuss how someone who wants to work can do so while having more than a passing acquaintanceship with their children or homelife. At some point, we were convinced that 40 hour work weeks were for slackers and that work/home balance was achieved by spending less time at home.

Lionel[redacted]Esq April 13, 2012 at 12:55 pm

The GOP might have a point, how hard did Ann Romney have to work to support her two Cadillac?

Gleem McShineys April 13, 2012 at 12:55 pm

ah shit, I got tripped by the hair-tri**er administrator!

LiveToServeYa April 13, 2012 at 12:55 pm

All the stock photo people are Al Franken supporters, anyway.

SoBeach April 13, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Anyway, everybody knows the only good “choice” to make as a mom is to stay at home…

Although to be fair Ann Romney supports the "choices" other women make, like choosing not to marry a mega-rich, politically connected, Harvard grad son of a governor who will keep her in Cadillacs while she spends her days raising children and riding her horses.

Ann understands that some women choose instead to work a series of shitty jobs trying to keep a roof over their kids' heads. And that's okay. Because whatever a woman chooses is just fine by Ann and Mitt.

Biff April 13, 2012 at 2:12 pm

As long as that choice doesn't include family planning, anyway…

pdiddycornchips April 13, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Soon many women will make the choice to live in their minivans after the house is foreclosed on and they no longer have a job. These women understand that their sacrifice will help keep taxes low for rich people and really, isn't that what really matters?

So some dummie says something vaguely offensive about Richie Rich's wife and now all women are supposed to forget everything the GOP has tried to shaft them (literally) with over the past year….yeah, I can see that working.

SorosBot April 13, 2012 at 1:03 pm

More like some smartie said something entirely accurate about Richie Rich's wife and so the GOP twisted her words around to say "she hates 'stay-at-home moms'" even though that was obviously not what she meant.

C_R_Eature April 13, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Octopus Mom works too and loves Barry.

Thank god. I thought that was gonna be a picture of octomom.

C_R_Eature April 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Oh, no, I wouldn't do that to you. Or me. I did have to wade through "Octomom" photos in the Google search but I'm trying to forget about them.

BigSkullF*ckingDog April 13, 2012 at 2:01 pm

I have a running joke with my bf in which every few months she tricks me into opening a picture of the octomom showing off her giant belly which totally grosses me out. And I still clicked your link thinking there would be a good chance that is what I would see. I must be some sort of sick masochist.

I wonder what working fathers (by working, I mean paid employment) would think if Obama found a super handsome stay-at-home dad, married to a successful billionaire woman, who had never held a paying job but instead devoted his life to raising their five children, with the help of nannies, maids, chefs, etc. Then held that guy up as an example of someone who was an expert on the challenges that the average working dad faces.

Not to quibble, Trog, but "A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" was actually an RNC line that was incorporated into Herbert Hoover's 1928 presidential campaign.

JustPixelz April 13, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Being a stay-at-home mom (or dad) can be wonderful for a child. Unless the extra money from his or her paycheck was for the college fund. Or for food and clothing. Or for health insurance. Ann Romney — who the Repubicans want to be a symbol/target in the campaign — never had to make those difficult financial decisions.

Anyway, if the Repubicans are sincere about stay-at-home is work they will support adding the value of a mom's (or dad's) labor to family income for tax purposes. True, that's effectively a tax increase, but work is work, right?

Sharkey April 13, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Thanks for the flute video. That was nice. Yes, it's portable, but this will be the first trip through TSA land with one so we'll see. I'm prepared for "what's this?" or "play something so we know you're not a terrorist." My response to the latter will be "Since I'm new at this, my playing WILL terrorize everyone who hears me play!"

I remember that bit from the PMRC hearings! Frank was all "You wanna see 'em?" when one of them wondered aloud what kind of toys his kids had growing up. He sure had a quick wit.

You're welcome. Chris is from the Baltimore area and, along with Ken Kolodner (Hammered Dulcimer, Ph.D. in Public Health) and Robin Bullock (Celtic Guitar God) plays in the traditional band Helicon. They're all awesome and back together after a long bit of solo work.

You should stick the flute down your pants, like Derek Smalls. See if they notice.
