Smart Girl Summit 2010: Mama Grizzlies In The Wild

Latest posty at NewsReal:

If you rely on leftist blogs or even the alleged mainstream media, you’d think that Mama Grizzlies/conservative women are actually some strange form of wildlife to be peered at curiously. For some, making sport of them has become a hobby. Instead of seeing the caricature made of them by the “Press,” why not come meet some in person? See us in our natural habitat, only without our kids and with lots of wine instead. Or, in my case, beer.

Smart Girl Politics‘ 2010 Summit is on September 30th and October 1st and it promises to be both informative and lots of fun. You see, we conservative dames aren’t the freakish oddities that we are made out to be. Nor are we exclusionary; Papa Grizzlies are more than welcome, too. Unlike our leftist counterparts, we do not think men are icky. They don’t oppress us, they complement us.

Citizen’s United recently released a film entitled Fire From The Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman. Many of the women featured in that movie will be in attendance, and speaking at, Smart Girl Summit. A screening of the movie will take place during the Summit as well. What better time to see that movie than when hobnobbing (Only not as fancy. We aren’t elitists!)  with some of the incredible women featured in it? Lorie Byrd, writing at Big Hollywood, describes the movie – and sums up some of the underlying factors for the apparent rise of the conservative woman:

Another interesting aspect of the movie was listening to women like Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter and Michelle Easton talk about how  they viewed the roles Phylis Schlafly and Margaret Thatcher played in the history of the conservative movement, highlighting how today’s generation of conservative women are just a continuation of those who came before them.

For those surprised that so many of the women becoming active in politics today come from the right side of the aisle the film shows this is an understandable result of the feminist movement.   As S.E. Cupp says in the movie, “Women like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann are really the unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. For liberal feminists, this was not what they bargained for.”

Exactly. We aren’t some new breed of special interest group. We have always been here; we are merely rising to the top now. Thank you, feminists! By ignoring you and your harmful agenda, we *have* come a long way, baby.

The agenda is chock-full of other goodies as well. And not just because I will be on a panel – although you really should attend that one, of course. Tammy Bruce will moderate a panel including me, Jenn Q. Public and the estimable Pamela Gorman wherein we will be discussing Feminism 2.0. And hopefully giving leftist feminists, or Femisogynists, a few whacks. Violence foment-y? Probably, since I’m a conservative. At least I didn’t say “set our sights on.”  Because, racism.

Oh yeah, the speakers? Take a gander – it’s like a who’s who of women who make the Left foam at the mouth.

    It always works better when you vote for the person, not their pigmentation, or genitalia, or chromosomes, or where their parents were born. If a person is qualified and can represent your best interests, then you vote for them, even if they don’t look like you.

    “. . . we do not think men are icky.”

    As long as you put your dirty underwear in the hamper, don’t let the dog run around the yard with your dirty socks, and get your OWN beer from time to time . . .

    Barack Obama is a plague which is like the black death of the Middle Ages. He has wiped out the Democratic Party, has left Teddy Kennedy rotting with the Kennedy’s in the grave, has just wiped out the Biden Syndicate in Delaware, and the next victims on the list are the Clintons royale, unless they come out from under the blanket filled with rodents and run for their political lives.

    God bless Christine O’Donnell, and thank God for Mark Levin who championed this Lady.

    @jclady-

    Boobie will be four on Thursday.

    Me? I was born three hours before Al Capone died. In Chicago, no less.

    Oh, and exactly 188 years after Rabbie Burns was born.

    @papadoc-

    “not their pigmentation, or genitalia, or chromosomes, or where their parents were born”

    Nor the shape of their legs, the $$ in their bank accounts, their high-school or college pranks (OK, this for Dems too), or their rack. Hell, PELOSI has a RACK.

    That’s good advice to remember when we casually remark about how hot the female conservative lineup is shaping up (npi) to be.

    The intelligent eyes and tongue should be enough physical traits for a sound judgement.

    Biblical Ladies from my absolute adoration of Esther, Ruth, Abigail, Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, Mary Magdalene and thee most incredible faith of the Virgin Mary, all were Ladies of character whom God chose explicitly because they were women not of a generation but for all time.

    Methinks that nothing will happen to the Clintons and me thinks (I hope I’m wrong) nothing will happen to Barack Hussein Obama. Why do I say this? Excrement floats!!!

    Lori Ziganto, I LOVED that piece!
    And the video was kick ass.

    I have a question for these women, though:
    Why don’t they hold these big meetings in the Midwest?
    The tea party movement is strongest in the Midwest, and we’d like for them to come to US, not US to them.

    Thanks, Tammy :)

    Last year’s Smart Girl Summit (first one, I believe) was held in Nashville. I’m not sure where next year’s will be. I, too, like when conferences/ conventions get to other parts of the country.

    I think the guys should be invited as well. We could be the “Reasonably Intelligent and Not Too Annoying” Delegation.
