Almost every week, Republicans join a competition to see who can say the most outlandish things, and in the process, they push the envelope on just how disastrous InsaniTEA can become. I trust that you will believe it, when I tell you that last week was no exception.
Phyllis Schlafly: Women enjoy the wage gap.
Anti-feminist crackpot Phyllis Schafly proved once again this week that she has never actually spoken to a single woman in her life. She has written another book, (hooray, what the world needs now is another Phyllis Schlafly book! She has written, oh, like, 20 of them! Turning 90 has not slowed her down one bit!) The new one is called “Who Killed The American Family.” It’s a whodunit, of course, and as Right Wing Watch points out, "Spoiler: It’s not just the gays.”
Though there are many co-conspirators in the murder of the family, Schalfly zeroed in on an odd one durign the interview: “The free trade people who have done the work of the feminists by getting rid of [middle class] jobs.”
Kay, a little confused. Is this uber-Republican against a free market and free trade? And since when did feminists make it their mandate to get rid of middle class jobs? We must have missed that meeting.
Did someone say jobs? That reminds Schafly of the gender pay gap, which she said is actually something that women like. Unequal pay is a turn on.
“Women like to marry a man who makes more than she does,” she explained, patiently, again, “so then she can take time off and work fewer hours when she has something she’d rather do like have a kid and look after her children. So the pay gap, really, is something that women like.”
Schlafly has an interesting list of co-conspirators which she shared with VCY America’s very informative show “Crosstalk.”
No-fault/unilateral divorce, U.N. treaties from bureaucrats that don’t understand our way of life, expensive college loans and the family courts. Also, there’s welfare reform, globalism vs. homemakers, psychological disorders, advice from newspapers, over-medicating children, and the influence of television and more.
She would have mentioned the Internet, but she does not know what that is.
There’s also the kitchen sink.
And the gays. Did we mention the gays?

I trust she also believes that women prefer to go shoeless and love the Republican requirement od pregnancy on demand. This is just the fifth of five disastrous Republican moments from last week alone. Click through for the other four.
