Hey, You GOP Old Farts–It’s Not the 1950’s Anymore


So GOP senate majority leader Mitch McConnell wouldn’t let Sen.
Elizabeth Warren read something into the record during the senate debate
on racist Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as Attorney General.  Of course, male
senators were allowed to read the same document–a Coretta Scott King
letter–without being shushed.  Now everyone’s outraged.

Shame on you people!  Everybody knows women have no business
speaking about politics in the presence of men.  It’s about time women
re-learned their place.  Haven’t you heard Kinky Friedman’s song Get
Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed?

Didn’t you outraged people see the 1956 movie “Giant” with Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson as husband and wife?  In the movie Taylor’s character, Leslie, is from Virginia and used to discussing politics.  When she marries a rich Texas rancher, she finds out what happens to women who don’t know their place.

There’s a scene where she joins–or tries to–the men in a gabfest about politics and everyone is shocked, shocked.  She is dismissed from the room and sent to bed by her knuckle-dragging troglodyte husband.  Yeah, she’s publicly humiliated, by her own husband, for not knowing her place.

But that was back in the ‘50’s.  Most people thought we’d gotten past that
sort of suppression of women.  They apparently haven’t realized–although
it is dawning on them now–that the 1950’s is where most of the old farts in
the GOP hierarchy live.  (That would be the grumpy old fart white guys.)

The GOP must have missed that massive women’s march the day after the
Trump inauguration.  They were probably busy nursing their hangovers and
yelling at kids to get off their lawns.

Ummm, you may have missed something else you surly, contemptible GOP
hierarchy but…brace yourselves…women are allowed to vote.  Yeah, it’s shocking but, calm down, rest a momentm and have another whisky and soda.  It’s earth shattering but, yes, women are actually allowed to vote Que lastima!

We all know you doddering old guys heading up the GOP aren’t not much for critical analytical thinking, preferring kneejerk obedience to someone else rather than thinking for yourselves.  But, just try to connect the dots–both of them. (C’mon, I know you don’t like math but you can do this; it’s only two dots for cryin’ out loud.)  Millions of women marched. Women vote in higher numbers than men.

Do you think women forget grievances? (Husbands and boyfriends, help
the GOP old farts out on this one.)

Are you aware, GOP sexists, that there will be elections in the future?

Can you extrapolate?
