Aunt B from the Nashville Scene caught wind of the Smart Girl Summit, occurring in Nashville this week. And she’s not happy about it.
You’ve got the women who were so certain that, if we just sat tight and did our part in the Democratic party long enough, that we would be rewarded with a woman president, and who really did leave in a snit when they felt the promised Clinton nomination was stolen from them.
You’ve got a Democratic party here who is, at best, somewhat apathetic towards the needs of women and who have pretty successfully made “women” and “urban” synonyms.
And, god bless ‘em, you’ve got a crop of conservative women politicians who saw and see openings that they’re willing to take.
We’re willing to take them, and the American people were willing to put us in there. The success of Smart Girl Politics over the past 8 months or so has done nothing but solidify the fact that there are a LOT of conservative women out there. Women who don’t buy the liberal lie that the left will take them under their wing and make all the injustices of past generations right through affirmative action and equal rights amendments and “pro-choice” legislation.
And there are more of us than they thought.
You want to see determined and ambitious women taking political and leadership roles.
And here they are.
Ha ha ha ha.
And they’re Republicans.
All that to say, I’m proud of what we’re doing. We’re making progress. I’m so excited for the Smart Girl Summit in Nashville this weekend. Maybe we should invite Aunt B to join us?
