More on Female Presidents

My cousin Attila, the Pillage Idiot, muses on the protocols involved in having a female president, and quotes the Anchoress, who wonders whether the upcoming Geena Davis series on that subject is supposed to prime the public and make us "ready" for that step.

He would also like to know what the rules will be for flashing the Presidential jugs. Very important to know.

What if the Hollywood establishment got everyone ready for a female President, and that person turned out to be Condi? There would be wailing and gnashing of teeth, for sure.

They did the VP thing with "The Contender" in 2000, where they were appointing her to be VP and the 'evil republicans' would do anything to stop her.

"...who wonders whether the upcoming Geena Davis series on that subject is supposed to prime the public and make us "ready" for that step."

No one with two functioning brain cells wonders about this question. The answer for the one-celled brainers out there is, "Yes."

Hopefully, as you pointed out, it will come back to bite them:

Blogs for Condi

I've been pulling for Condi for quite a while now, but there's not the slightest doubt in my mind that Geena's new series is meant to prepare the country for Hillary.

This hardly requires a conspiracy. The entertainment industry is so ideologically uniform that I'm sure everyone involved thought it was clever to do a show anticipating HRC's inevitable rise to the presidency. But you're probably much more familiar with the Borg-like qualities of the entertainment industry than I am.

It isn't a binary choice...I can think of a female President I'd prefer to see take office to either Hillary OR Condi.

This one.

Attila Girl, thanks for making sure we have the female perspective on this issue: "flashing the Presidential jugs" -- WHEW!

Simon, haven't we had enough liberal northeasterners running for president to last us a long, long time?

Posted by: Attila (Pillage Idiot) at May 12, 2005 07:28 PM

Well, a) she's not a liberal, and b) I'm not especially interested in what part of the country a person comes from, I'm more interested in what their views are on the issues that matter, what they think about immigration, what they're going to do about abortion, what they're going to do with the economy, whether they will sell out America to CAFTA and so on. None of those thingsa re determined by where in the nation you happen to live or be raised.

Simon, strong on defense, socially moderate, and a deficit-reducer? She'll get creamed by her own Republicans before she even gets a chance at a hair-pulling contest with Hillary. As the nuclear option, the prayer tent caucas will trott out the old "she's PRO-ABORTION" saw.

Even Condi will have a tough row to hoe (no pun intended) for not being extremely and belligerently on the side of "every sperm is sacred" and keeping American women barefoot and preggers. In the final analysis, the Republican Party has to choose between the gunrack NASCAR extra chromosome type of voter that easily slides them into office, and the more educated ideals of the party as espoused by, say, William F. Buckley. If it comes to a rift, take heart, because many current Blue Staters like myself are getting a little sick of having to be under the same tent as screaming dreadlocked worshippers of Che Guevara.

The current fake wannabe Dem TV president- Martin Sheen- is term-limited and nearing the end of his run. So- since Dems can't elect a REAL president, they need to elect their next fake wannabe TV president, and that's where Geena comes in.

Expect many episodes and references to the fake Dem/Femme President solving international crises by talking with other countries about their feelings- getting N Korea in touch with its inner child, &c.

SHE doesn't have to launch illegal wars like some OTHER presidents we know, eh? Right.

Also expect references to how the Dem/Femme Pres manages to lead the Free World despite occasional PMS and not having a penis.

There will also be one episode when a Secret Service agent accidently sees the President of the United States naked.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
