What's that snarling noise coming from over by the Liberal Birther Movement? Why, it's the sound of angry Liberals trying desperately to repress their desire to rip into Deb Hutton, wife of Tim Hudak.
Those students of recent electoral history will recall that the male jocks running the Liberal War Room wanted to devote lots of energy and ad space to attacking a woman who was not running against them. Sanity temporarily prevailed and the Liberals shelved this incredibly stupid plan for a few months until people stopped noticing.
Now that Tim Hudak has unveiled a campaign bus with a picture of his family on it, apparently that makes Deb Hutton part of the campaign, so let's get right down to business bashing Deb Hutton. Um, yeah. Well, considering that they're already running separate campaigns against Harper, Ford, Horwath, Harris, the entire Tea Party, the right-wing media conspiracy, the Koch Brothers, and a whole host of others that share the distinction of not being Tim Hudak, it was only a matter of time before Deb Hutton got her own campaign. When do we get ads attacking Tavish Hudak, Tim's dog? As I type this, are Liberal staffers organizing a presser where Tim Hudak's vet admits that Tavish is part pit bull?
But none of this gets to the real heart of the problem, and that is that Liberals, especially the claw-baring bloggers that the Liberal War Room Boss has hooked up with, don't like the idea of Deb Hutton, Conservative Woman. It just doesn't fit their model of how women should behave. "Ooooh, she was an advisor to Mike Harris! Somehow, that's horrible!" And it's not just Deb Hutton. Think about Lisa Macleod, who is known for being forward. How do Liberals feel about her? Oh yeah.
Christine Elliott gets a lot of disingenuous praise from Liberals for being modest and chaste and demure, but on the rare occasions where she lets the partisan flag fly, the same people are less enamoured of her. Hey, wasn't there also a post attacking Conservative campaign chair Jenni Byrne during the federal election for supposedly being immoderate? That she couldn't hang with the big boys? Yeah, that's the one. Well, she sure proved them wrong. You go girl!
Hmmm. I'm beginning to detect a trend.
I'm no fan of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann, and of course my opinion doesn't count because I'm a man, but the hatred these women engender (pun intended) among women on the left is unmistakable, and so is the reason for the hatred: It is okey dokey for these protectors of women's rights to attack a woman, IF she is a Conservative.
And in this, we have finally found the perfect countermeasure for TIM HUDAK HATEZ TEH WIMMENZ scaremongering, and that is that the bloggers handpicked by the Liberal War Room to try and make sure that young women don't vote en masse for the Tories like they did in the federal election do not speak for all women. Brilliant. Absolute genius. Whatever other mistakes the PC Party makes between now and Oct. 6th, I'll always give them credit for this.
