‘American Thinker’ Magazine: Why Does Barack Obama Refuse To Be A Republican Woman?

Why won't Barack Obama do sex to Republican ladies?Grace Harley went to a thing, for ladies, and she almost left because it was full of stupid feminists like Nancy Pelosi saying women have to work harder than men to be seen as at all capable and what kind of nonsense is that? But then Grace Harley realized she was there for a purpose, and that purpose was to describe each of the speakers’ outfits and then browbeat anyone with whom she came into contact.

And so I did, attempting to add comments here and there correcting incomplete or outright incorrect statements. The bright and shining young interns sitting next to me were fed one-line remarks or scribbled questions throughout the forum in order to help guide their thinking. Still, I am concerned for the others in the room whom I was not able to speak with during the breaks and meals. My prayer expanded to them — that their intellects and tender hearts would filter out any harmful perspectives being touted by the panel speakers.

Grace Harley sounds nice.

Grace Harley’s main point, though, is that fuck Barack Obama for not surrounding himself with Republican women (probably since they mostly want him to die).

To boil down the message of the day to simple terms, it can be found in the title of headline speaker Nancy Pelosi’s book, Know Your Power. Attired in immaculate crème feminine slacks, crème silk blouse, crème high heels, and a strand of large crème pearls, Mrs. Pelosi presented as a most engaging lady of a certain age. She was personable, quickly relating to the audience of educated and accomplished women seeking “more” out of life. She preached a gospel of Cause and Purpose: “… my despair over the fact that one in five children in America is in poverty.” This was given as the driving force for her initial foray into what is called public service today. “For over two hundred years, we’ve been playing in someone else’s playing field. We have to create our own environment. We need to reduce the role of money and increase the level of civility to get more women in politics.” She explained that the breadbox is how people vote at the ballot box.

A flawless and golden Mika Brzezinski (co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe) interviewed Senior Advisor to Obama Valerie Jarrett. These two glowing and groomed gals chatted like old friends about the difficulties of being female in a man’s world. They repeated the tired phrases of all the other feminists: you must work harder than anyone else, you must believe in yourself, you must promote your résumé, you must find female mentors, you must help pave the way for other women coming up behind you. After all, women are superior to men in all ways. Aren’t they? (Audience laughter here.)

But wait: the day was not lost, for on the menu — just to stay fair and balanced — were three ladies I found worth hearing. Linda Rabbitt (founder, chairwoman, and CEO of Rand Construction Corp.) heads up a vast team of employees and manages an average annual volume of over $250 million. Another admirable lady was Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), who came to office from a family-owned orchard and an education from Pensacola Christian College.

The most inspiring speaker in my opinion was from the great state of Texas: longtime Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX). Of all the impressive women who spoke that day, Senator Hutchison presented to me an example of what I would most like to represent. She was professionally attired in a pretty kelly green and white skirt-suit. She sat in ladylike fashion, with her skirt covering her knees, and she spoke in low, soft tones. Never once did she speak a word against anyone — not even men. In fact, she was complimentary of the other women in Congress and expressed appreciation for her baby shower hosted by Hillary Clinton and the ladies who join her regularly for dinners. She did not mention (to my memory) any current or past president. She did humbly but confidently speak about her consideration of running for the highest office, but then she spoke of her two adopted children. At one point she turned to the audience and strongly stated that the number-one priority of her job was to “serve the constituents.” She was the only speaker who made this type of remark.

I doubt that these last three mentioned ladies (Ms. Rabbitt, Representative Rodgers, Senator Hutchison) would be found on the long, long list of women who surround the Obama administration. They do not fit the profile of “goddess.” In fact, just the opposite. These competent, calm, and conservative ladies are just what a successful president should be seeking.

Obama’s cult of goddesses will one day find that they no longer need any male to promote “the causes of women.” And he will find himself with no one to worship and no one to worship him.

That was so long! Sorry! But we just couldn’t stop. Because what on earth is she talking about, this Rev. Grace Harley? Oh, right, she is a reverend, it has something to do with TD Jakes and Bill Clinton, and also she runs an ex-gay ministry because she used to be f-to-m transgender, but also a lesbian, but now Jesus has healed her and taken “Joe” out of her soul, which makes us sad that she couldn’t just be Joe and be happy, or be a woman and a lesbian and just be happy. But it seems like maybe she is happy just telling other people’s interns what to think and being a bossypants and hating the president, so that’s cool. We really want her to be happy, for realsies. You keep being you, Rev. Grace Harley, whatever you decide that “you” is. We at Wonket support your right to be a dick or have one or whatever floats it, if you want one that floats.

        I don't love people in general, but I prefer chicks over dudes any day. I don't mean for sexing and sandwich-making, I mean for coworkers and bosses, and freinds.

        1. Boojum

          What, you don't like sex and sammiches or just that you discriminate against women in relation to the aforementioned conjugal comestibles?

          Srsly, womens are far better at the friends thing, except (mostly) when killin' stuff.

    1. SorosBot

      Nah, if this were the Jezebel of today Wonkette would be joining in on the style talk instead of mocking it.

      1. prommie

        Not to mention a lot of "come see the oppression inherent in the system, this is what I have been going on about" war stories.

        1. Bezoar

          "Oh, now we see the violence inherent in the system!"

          One of the, maybe the funniest movie scene of all time.

          1. prommie

            In just seconds, it nails that type, the ideological martyr. Of which Jezebellians are only one of many flavors.

        1. Baconzgood

          Sorry. I really didn't hear of it until yesterday. I didn't listen to a radio or look at a TV or newspaper in a week. Fucked up stuff.

          1. Baconzgood

            Are you talking about the 107 replies or the "CORRECTION"? I assume it was the correction. If someone was banned I hope it wasn't someone I wanna fuck.

          2. James Michael Curley

            I didn't read the whole post so I'm not sure who got banned. I just hope it wasn't someone I lent money to at the Wonkette Drinky Think in Juarez.

    Grace Harley's rather obsessed with crème, isn't she? Well, that explains a lot…

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Is she referring to a color or some sort of fabric? Pearls and shoes can't be made of the same material, can they?

    2. freakishlywrong

      She is inferring "crème" is elitist and lefty. As is "golden". The respectable, sensible Republican women were all in cloth coats.

    3. Preferred Customer

      Do not want to think about Nancy Pelosi attired in a pearl necklace. Do not want at all.

    4. kittensdontlie

      She became obsessively hungry while waiting for her order of crème brulee to arrive.

    5. Nibbler of Niblonia

      notice how the women with whom she disagrees are painted as superficial fashionistas, but the ones she likes are touted as titans of industry.

      what a cunt

    1. SorosBot

      He's very, very angry that decent people are boycotting them for being homophobic bigots, which is apparently now a form of tyranny.

      1. Generation[redacted]

        We don't stand a chance boycotting. They're fatter and can eat more than we can.

    2. Beowoof

      Judging by their level of homophobia, I am sure they are eating a lot now. It is sad when the best news sources out there are two guys on Comedy Central and Rolling Stone.

    3. tessiee

      I say we all hold hands and go to Chik-Fil-A wearing assless chaps and tongue-kiss each other repeatedly.
      Also, we should do something to express our disapproval of their homophobia.

  3. KeepFnThatOwl

    My prayer expanded to them — that their intellects and tender hearts would filter out any harmful perspectives being touted by the panel speakers Grace Harley.

  4. Oblios_Cap

    Obama’s cult of goddesses will one day find that they no longer need any male to promote “the causes of women.” And he will find himself with no one to worship and no one to worship him.

    There's a real WTF moment.

  5. SorosBot

    Yeah, all those feminists are lying when they claim sexism still is a problem in America today! Now let me go back to judging these accomplished politicians based on their dresses.

    1. Billmatic

      Don't forget complimenting their ladiness for not taking any extreme positions and being quiet and demure, like a good woman.

        1. chicken_thief

          The heels is jes fucking bookends for the loaf, dumb bitch – not for making sammiches!!!!

  6. Billmatic

    Gotta "guide that thinking" to the right, unless it's to the left then it's mind control, propaganda, brain washing and/or social engineering.

  7. UnholyMoses

    Accomplished women sharing their secrets of success and encouraging women to think about following generations? Brainwashing!

    Having some confused "reverend" tell them what to do instead, because she's convinced she's superior (despite practically no one having ever heard of her)? Priceless!

    For reality, there are the likes of Nancy Pelosi.

    For clinical fucking stupidity, there's Republitard.

    "The most inspiring speaker in my opinion was from the great state of Texas: longtime Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX"

    Now I find this very hard to believe; for one thing, in no way can the country's worst state be called "great".

  10. MissTaken

    So should I wear the crème pearls with my crème pantsuit or not? I'm a silly woman so that's all I really care about.

    1. OneYieldRegular

      "There I was drinking a café crème (with my usual splash of crème de Cassis), and my oh my, with all that crème – crème blouse, crème slacks, crème heels, crème pearl necklace, crème complexion – I must say that the Speaker really looked like the crème of the crop. That Marxist trollop."

  11. BaldarTFlagass

    "an education from Pensacola Christian College. "

    If you went to a school that has "Baptist" or "Christian" or "Bible" in the name, you did not receive an education, you received an indoctrination.

    1. Oblios_Cap

      We've got a clown here at work that always slips in the fact he's in grad school in any conversation he can work it into. He's going to an online seminary. What a jackass.

  12. SexySmurf

    In fact, she was complimentary of the other women in Congress and expressed appreciation for her baby shower hosted by Hillary Clinton and the ladies who join her regularly for dinners.

    Grace Harley thinks Obama should surround himself with broads talking about their baby showers and girls' nights out because Grace Harley wants Obama to blow his brains out.

    1. tessiee

      "Grace Harley thinks Obama should surround himself with broads talking about their baby showers and girls' nights out because Grace Harley wants to blow Obama."

      Fixed

  13. Baconzgood

    "My prayer expanded to them — that their intellects and tender hearts would filter out any harmful perspectives being touted by the panel speakers."

    What the fuck does that mean?

  14. Fraudulently_Joe

    As if we needed yet another data point of evidence that "ex-gay" therapy was a complete sham:

    Obama’s cult of goddesses will one day find that they no longer need any male to promote “the causes of women.”

    Volumes, spoken in that one sentence.

    "She was professionally attired in a pretty kelly green and white skirt-suit. She sat in ladylike fashion, with her skirt covering her knees, and she spoke in low, soft tones. "

    And she's a war hawk who likes executing people and never met a right wing cause she didn't embrace fully, but so genteel.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Not mentioned, but at least subtly implied, was that she wore a skirt that covered her knees so that you couldn't see the aspirin between them. Because she's a fucking LADY.

  16. KeepFnThatOwl

    Next time, mention earlier that your subject is a reverend. That way, I can go back to the root page and keep refreshing.

  17. mrpuma2u

    Well gawd knows we don't want any dirty, hippy, lovey, forgiving godess cult stuff. We want angry wrathful skygods, who will flick you into hell at the slightest whiff of sinful discretions. Gawds who demand you conduct yourself with, well, grace.

  18. mrblifil

    So Obama wasn't there, nobody talked about him much, and nobody used the word Goddess in any way shape or form, except for the author of the American Thinker article. No wonder Uncle Sam looks so constipated, that's one noxious pile of shit brewing up in there.

  19. SorosBot

    Kay Bailey Hutchison was so great! She didn't talk about anything unladylike like politics but kept her talk to proper women's issues like serving dinner and babies. There's a woman who really knows her place!

    Grr.

  20. Caelan Aegana

    Rev. Harley knows that the only way to get ahead as a woman is on your back, legs up, no talking.

  21. Mumbletypeg

    A flawless and golden Mika Brzezinski …Obama’s cult of goddesses

    Ms. Harley's suggestion Obama pal around with more noteworthies from across the bridge got totally sideswiped by her quite evident goddess-envy.

    ETA: that's "goddess," not godless. I'm still reeling from the brilliant thoughts exchanged among atheists & ilk on last night's thread. Circumstances keep playing out the way they do in our collective line of vision and I may "go Galt godless" yet~

    1. SayItWithWookies

      Well, if one already has the wisdom and compassion without the dogmatism, the deity part just sort of dwindles into irrelevance — nonetheless, the possibility does make me feel all tingly inside.

    1. Beowoof

      I don't know about you, but the sound of my Harley blowing air is so much more pleasing than Grace blowing anything.

    "They repeated the tired phrases of all the other feminists: you must work harder than anyone else, you must believe in yourself, you must promote your résumé, you must find female mentors, you must help pave the way for other women coming up behind you. "

    Which part of this is the bad advice, Grace? Do you not need to work harder to succeed? Don't we give this same advice to young men all the time? Should you not believe in yourself? No, belive in God to magically give you a job. Or, really, believe in your husband because why are you even working. Should you not have mentors who share your background (whatever that is- my mentors are all socially anxious dorks, because I need to learn how to succeed with that).

    Wait, the lady from Texas talked about her babies. And wore a skirt. That's all you are supposed to do to be a good woman. Baby and legs.

  23. Buckminster

    I think when they did the transgender thing, they took out part of her brain that deals in critical thinking. Also the governor that keeps a person from going on and on whenever they get a chance to write.

  24. sbj1964

    Feministas? I once had a women introduce herself as a Feminist,Anarcho Communist,Atheist,with strong lesbian leanings ,but still likes a solid relationship with a man. I bet she's fun at parties.

  25. Billmatic

    If she's confused about her sexuality, I suggest she watches Michelle Jenneke shimmy for a few minutes to make sure.

  26. Radiotherapy

    So let me get this straight, Grace was a lesbian cocaine addict who became a man and now is active in Homosexuals Anonymous (HA ha) and is lecturing us about créme de la créme and Jesus??!!? What. Everr.

  27. SayItWithWookies

    Men get to the top by being tough, no-nonsense, hardheaded decisive leaders. Women make it to the top by dressing nice, being demure, not talking too much or too loud and leaving the controversial issues to the side so they can plan baby showers. I'm sure that's exactly the advice that Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi and Benazir Bhutto would give, too.

      1. SayItWithWookies

        How could I forget Golda? Now there was a chick you wouldn't want to mess with.

  28. Baconzgood

    Sooooo……She mentions again and again what these women were wearing? Way to pigeonhole women.

    1. Mumbletypeg

      I stopped reading before I got to the gooey, crème-filled center.
      Should've stayed the course though. I'd kinda like to find out what happens to the Linda Rabbit character…

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      "she used to be f-to-m transgender, but also a lesbian, but now Jesus has healed her"

      So she had a crank built, and then had it cut back off again. Isn't there some kind of addiction-to-surgery type of psychological condition?

  29. Baconzgood

    Hey grace. Just because you can type doesn't mean if you slam words together they will make sense.

  30. Thurman Munster IV

    Ah conservatives, can't live with them, can't chop them up and dispose of them in hydrochloric acid like on Breaking Bad. Moderator: just joking!

    " The bright and shining young interns sitting next to me"

    Here is her real problem. The seated her in the kiddie section with the interns.

    "Grace Harley’s main point, though, is that fuck Barack Obama for not surrounding himself with Republican women (probably since they mostly want him to die)."

    Because surrounding himself with Republican women worked out so well for George W. Bush.

    " because she used to be f-to-m transgender"

    You mean after she went through the hormone treatments and surgical reconstruction, she had it undone? Ack. Her privates must look like Michael Jackson's nose.

  32. GregComlish

    Obama’s cult of goddesses will one day find that they no longer need any male to promote “the causes of women.” And he will find himself with no one to worship and no one to worship him.

    Well, yeah, obviously, but Barry won't even need anybody to worship him at that point. Once Obama's cult of goddesses seizes power then we will already be living in a socialist lesbian matriarchy wherein all men will be strap-on sodomized for the glory of Womynkind as per the feminist agenda.

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      I, for one, do not welcome our strap-on wearing man-sodomizing overmistresses. Ouch!

  33. randcoolcatdaddy

    "Senator Hutchison presented to me an example of what I would most like to represent. She was professionally attired in a pretty kelly green and white skirt-suit. She sat in ladylike fashion, with her skirt covering her knees, and she spoke in low, soft tones."

    Heaven knows that experience and accomplish count for nothing without the proper hat and accessories. Just ask any gay man.

  34. BaldarTFlagass

    "Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), who came to office from a family-owned orchard"

    So shouldn't it say Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Granny Smith)?

    1. tessiee

      Having lived in Oregon for ten years and more, I can safely state that every single person from Washington State grew up on an apple orchard.

  35. MrsConclusion

    So, to sum up: she was a woman, who was a Lesbian, and then became (or tried to become) a man, but gave that up and resumed/began being a woman (straight?) again–and she's having opinions on how other women should dress, behave, and live?

    As Bob Newhart said in an old comedy routine: Is this a gag? Is this one of the guys at the office?

  36. chicken_thief

    "Oh, right, she is a reverend, it has something to do with TD Jakes and Bill Clinton, and also she runs an ex-gay ministry because she used to be f-to-m transgender, but also a lesbian, but now Jesus has healed her and taken “Joe” out of her soul,…"

    Jeezus Christ, this "gal" just can't make up her mind. Let's cut to the chase – she sporting a cock or pussy? When she eats at the Y – hot dogs or tacos?

  37. Spurning Beer

    I could walk to Pensacola Christian College from where I'm sitting in about ten minutes. Or, as I call it, "Vocation Bible School."

    Oh, and incidentally, I'm wearing an impeccable dark sage knit shirt, creaseless grey cotton slacks, and casual brown shoes.

    1. tessiee

      See, now with the sage shirt and brown shoes, I woulda gone with the khaki Dockers, but then I'm a Winter.

  38. Biel_ze_Bubba

    So she's a former transgendered person? Between that and all the Jeebusing, it's a miracle she can walk in a straight line. Coherent thoughts, I'm afraid, are out of the question.

  39. Jus_Wonderin

    If you plan to Google image her/him. Do be careful to spell the last name correctly. Harley not Hartley. I have found the results of that error are NSFW.

  40. qwerty42

    The … uh … comments at the site sure take you back. To the 50's. But there is the obligatory occasional racist remark that just has to be made. I have to assume the commenters (why do I think "old white guys"?) don't know anything about the trans stuff.

  41. kittensdontlie

    I am alone here or were BObama and Ms. Pelosi about to go mouth-to-mouth on this post's photo? His mouth closed, hers half open in expectation of a pleasant surprise.

  42. Estproph

    The Very Impressive Lady Senator (Senatoress?) Kay Bailey Hutchinson never said a word against anyone – NOT EVEN MEN. My my! How is that even possible?

  43. OneYieldRegular

    And we have a winner. Other contenders for this year's Bulwer-Lytton contest should just give up right now.

  44. tessiee

    "Attired in immaculate crème feminine slacks, crème silk blouse, crème high heels, and a strand of large crème pearls"

    If Ms. Harley [THAT ought to give her an ulcer!] is referring to the *color* of the garments Nancy Pelosi was wearing, the word is "cream". If Nancy Pelosi was wearing *creme* garments, they were made out of cake frosting.

  45. tessiee

    Blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, Democrats and liberals are so angry and hateful, Democratic women are ugly, hairy-legged, man-hating feminists, they're all so ANGRY, I'd like to SCRATCH THEIR ANGRY EYES OUT WHARRRGARRBL…

  46. tessiee

    "she used to be f-to-m transgender, but also a lesbian, but now Jesus has healed her and taken “Joe” out of her soul, which makes us sad that she couldn’t just be Joe and be happy, or be a woman and a lesbian and just be happy"

    Look, nothing against lesbians or gay people or transgendered people or anybody else, but It DOES lend a slightly different context to her article in which she gives detailed descriptions about what every woman is wearing; repeatedly uses adjectives like "immaculate", "flawless", "golden", "glowing", "ladylike" and "goddess"; and infers, from a speech saying, "you must work harder than anyone else, you must believe in yourself, you must promote your résumé, you must find female mentors, you must help pave the way for other women coming up behind you", that what the speaker REALLY means is, "After all, women are superior to men in all ways. Aren’t they?"

  47. DahBoner

    Why would Conservatives bother to read this magazine?

    The whole point of being Conservative is that you don't have to waste time thinking…

  48. tessiee

    "she used to be f-to-m transgender, but also a lesbian, but now Jesus has healed her and taken “Joe” out of her soul"

    OK, if I'm to understand this correctly…
    she started out as a girl, became a boy, went back to being a girl (but one who likes girls), and asked Jeebus to make her a girl who likes boys (or who maybe doesn't like anybody, but who DEFINITELY doesn't like girls)…
    have I got that right?
    And anyone is surprised that she can't think straight?

  49. tessiee

    Well, at least she has two words in her vocabulary — "lady" and "creme". That puts her one up on Darrell Issa.

  50. tessiee

    "Obama’s cult of goddesses will one day find that they no longer need any male to promote “the causes of women.” And he will find himself with no one to worship and no one to worship him."

    What is this I don't even?

    Is s/he saying that all women who support ("worship") President Obama are weak, coat-tail-riding users who only like him because they think he'll fight their battles for them, and once they don't need that any longer, we'll drop him like a loose button, because he has no positive qualities?

    And why would someone who "cremes" her bloomers at the thought of a woman who sits "in ladylike fashion, with her skirt covering her knees, and she spoke in low, soft tones. Never once did she speak a word against anyone" object to women needing a man to act on their behalf?

    Women cannot simultaneously be too co-dependent and not co-dependent enough. Ms. Grace seems confused about a good many things, but would it be asking too much of her to make up her alleged mind, at least within the context of her own words in one article?

  51. dopper0189

    "Oh, right, she is a reverend, it has something to do with TD Jakes and Bill Clinton, and also she runs an ex-gay ministry because she used to be f-to-m transgender, but also a lesbian, but now Jesus has healed her and taken “Joe” out of her soul, "

    Why do all Republicans want to be called Joe even when that isn't their name? Joe the plumber, Joe Wilson, etc
