Boxer Tells Rice: "No Child? Shut Up!"
Liberals are really hung up on Condoleezza Rice not having any children. They think single Black women just naturally pop out a bunch, and that Condoleezza is off the plantation.
Notice how the cartoonist Danziger thinks educated Black professionals speak, sho' nuff.
The New York Post Online edition reported that, “(Condoleezza) Rice appeared before the Senate in defense of President Bush's tactical change in Iraq, and quickly encountered (Dem. Sen. – Cal. Barbara) Boxer.
"Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price," Boxer said. "My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young."
Then, to Rice: "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family."
Incredibly, Senator Boxer, drawing upon all of her room-temperature level IQ, finds, as the Post comments, that “an accomplished, seasoned diplomat, a renowned scholar and an adviser to two presidents like Condoleezza Rice is not fully qualified to make policy at the highest levels of the American government because she is a single, childless woman.”
Basically, Senator Boxer is criticizing Dr. Rice for "making policy while childless."
A New York Times article points out the obvious, that Senator Boxer is incapable of knowing what she said, even though she repeated herself often, "who pays the price?"
The Post then goes on to puzzle about how such a statement would be greeted and treated if a Republican, particularly a white male Republican, had made it to a Democrat or to a woman. I wish to add to the speculation, and wonder how such a statement would be treated by the Main Stream Media if a white Republican male had made it to a single, childless, Black Democrat woman.
Anything goes, as long as the racism and sexism of Pat Oliphant is directed at a Republican Black woman
Instead of being buried in paragraph 18 of a routine Associated Press dispatch from Washington, D.C., it would be in the first paragraph under the headline, “Democrats Demand Resignation,” followed by the sub-headline, “An Unspeakable Insult to all Childless Persons – Including Single and Married Women, Gays, Lesbians, Bisexual, and Transgender Americans.”
Instead of ignoring the story, the San Francisco Chronicle – Motto: “All Nancy Pelosi, all the time” – would be publicizing and coordinating the protest rallies, and demanding that President Bush apologize to the American public for being the leader of such a narrow-minded party.
Are the only Americans qualified to give advice or decide issues those who have a direct stake in an issue? The Democrats think so. Senator Boxer insists Condoleezza Rice is unqualified because she personally has no family at risk in Iraq. Not long ago Republicans who had never served in the military were called “Chicken hawks” for supporting the war in Iraq. Apparently only veterans can decide military issues, only Blacks can legislate Black issues, only Hispanics decide issues of illegal immigration, only teachers are qualified on education matters, only nurses (not doctors, they’re not unionized) on medical matters, & Etc.
If that’s the way it is, I think only taxpayers should get to decide income taxation questions. Since half of American voters pay little or no income taxes, that would end a lot of Democrat tax-the-rich-and-give-the-money-to-the-ones-who-deserve-it schemes.
Only property owners should have a vote on property taxes. Only business owners would vote on business issues.
I’m starting to warm up to the Democrat’s approach to who is qualified to run things.
Then Senators Boxer and Feinstein would get to vote on issues involving women who marry rich men, which are about the only ones in which they seem to be paying a personal price. They’ve never served in the military – no personal price there. They aren’t Blacks or Hispanics, not impoverished, not homeless, not unemployed, not teachers or nurses – the best thing they can do is just keep their mouths shut.
If Barbara Boxer can keep hers shut, that’s proof positive that the Age of Miracles has not passed.
UPDATE: Barbara Boxer displayed her monumental lack of intellect again today (in a San Francisco Chronicle article, of course) buttressed by the most tired of current Liberal clichés when she explained her remarks were "speaking truth to power." By now, not even the most clueless dare say that without suffering terminal embarrassment. What Boxer should have said was that she was "speaking truthiness to power," in essence that she knew something intuitively, instinctively, or "from the gut" without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or actual facts.
To confirm this, Boxer was quoted in the article: "I was just saying what I felt."
We close out with an excerpt from the lowest of the low, a Ted Rall cartoon, that instructs Condi Rice "You're not white, stupid," and sends Dr. Rice, graduate cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, member of the Stanford faculty, off to the education the Left thinks she really needs, on how to be Black.
And take care of all dem chill'un.
I'm amazed that Blacks and women don't find these icons of the Left racist, sexist, and insulting. I guess that as long as you're a white Liberal Democrat, you're OK.
