Moms Gone Wild

Posted by redsatellite on September 19, 2008

Despite Time.com’s typically irritating liberal bias, I managed to plod through their recent post about middle-aged white women. Trust me, that was quite an achievement. According to Time, in the evolution of recent elections- first we had soccer moms, then we had security moms, now we have Maxed-out Moms.

Meet the woman of the year: White, high school–educated and probably on the north side of age 50, she is getting the worst of a bad economy. She’s worrying about whether her daughter will be able to afford college and her father his medicine. Her husband can barely afford the gasoline it takes to get back and forth from a job he’s in danger of losing — and with it, their health insurance. She’s getting her hair cut less often and sometimes has to put her utility bill on her Visa. She’s the woman doing the laundry at 11 p.m., because it’s the first chance she’s had all day to do it.

So it’s no surprise that she hasn’t yet gotten around to settling on Barack Obama or John McCain — though how she votes may well determine the outcome of the election. 

Yah…I know, they almost lost me in that opening paragraph. It’s a wonder I hung in there. Good God…with all that female DISPAIR and angst, I’m looking for my Ginsu knife….to slit my wrists.

Part of it is that many maxed-out moms are older than Obama, which makes them more skeptical that he has the experience he needs to do the job. Many are more culturally conservative than he is, and they are more likely than their younger sisters to be what Democratic pollster Celinda Lake delicately describes as “racially sensitive.”

‘Racially sensitive’? Huh? Why don’t you just say PREJUDICED. That way if Obama loses -you can throw the race card at every white mom with a highschool education.

A new TIME poll, conducted Sept. 11-15, shows Obama and McCain running a dead heat among women overall. But McCain holds an 18-point lead among older, less-educated likely women voters.

Nearly 7 in 10 of the women TIME polled disagreed with Palin’s suggestion that humans are not responsible for global warming; two-thirds took exception to her opposition to abortion in all circumstances except when the life of the mother is in danger; and a majority did not share her support of the Iraq war. 

Gee- there’s a disconnect.

Well then…..why the 18 point lead? Hmmm…must be because they’re less educated. Not NEARLY as learned and sophisticated as their college educated ‘sisters’. So….why don’t you just come out and say it? It’s actually McCain’s VP pick, isn’t it?

Must be all those white trash women who can’t get enough of Sarah Palin.
