2010 is Year of the Woman---Again

I'm sure you've noticed. There are a lot of women running for Congress in this election.

In fact, it is a record number---145 total, with 17 for the Senate and 128 for the House.

In 1992, the media was abuzz calling it the, "Year of the Woman," however they should have called it the "year of the liberal woman."

Despite the fact that there are more women in this election than in 1992, the media is quiet---no proclamations about the woman.

Sonja Eddings Brown says in POLITICO that the media is mum this time because in '92, 54 women were elected to Congress and all the new female members , both Republican and Democrat, supported abortion.

This time, many of the women running are conservative, with conservative values, and that just doesn't fit the media's usual narrative.

Brown says from the time Sarah Palin stepped onto the national stage she, "has been criticized, even vilified , about everything from her wardrobe to her reading list. But her original (and continuing) sin, in the eye of the elites, is her unwavering conservative views and values."

Palin has motivated other women to run, many share her faith and values.

Brown observes that when successful businesswomen run for office, "The focus is nearly always on non-economic, extraneous issues."

"The old girls club," Brown says, "that honors life-long, liberal pols like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) is as narrow-minded and snobbish as the old boy's club. Maybe more so."

Most of the media is overlooking or simply avoiding the fact that a record number of women are running this year because of their view.

Brown says even Forbes missed it when they recently named Michelle Obama the 2010 most powerful woman in the world and placed politically right-of-center German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, at number 4.

"In what universe does a woman who has never run a company, let alone a government, outrank the nationally elected leader of the world's fourth-largest economy?" Brown asks.

Her answer?

"In a universe where it's more important to be liberal, than it is to be a woman."

The litmus test for the elite progressive liberal media is simple. You must be pro-abortion---support the redefining of marriage, affirm the homosexual agenda and be pro-tax and support big government. If you are a conservative, with conservative values, they will work to politically destroy you. It won't matter if you are more qualified than your opponent, they will choose the lesser candidate to support.

Even, as in this case, it means trampling on the very political correctness they have advocated as a social control mechanism.

May God free us from their bondage.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
