As BurkaChick, the typical lapdog liberal, I am in a socialist stink about our on going “war on women” wail. Just as we think we can phony pony up the female vote by turning our racism rants to sexism chants, along comes another example of conservative female exceptionalism, Judge Jeanine Pirro. We thought we had our liberal ladies lined-up with our Wendy Davis and Sandra Fluke Planned Parenthood prattle. We even had the whole “she-bang” of victimization and government dependency to throw and stick on our “war on women” wall. But along comes another conservative female shredding our spotlight on our woe is me mentality. Instead of rolling our eyes and our toddler tirades of inequality (ala the Tamara Holder and Kirsten Powers democrat rebutting strategy), we have another confident, articulate and accomplished right wing dynamo to contend with.
Judge Jeanine Pirro not only was the first female to prosecute murder cases in Westchester County, New York; she went on to become the first woman to serve as a judge in that county. In 1978, she started the first domestic violence unit in a prosecutor office, in the nation. Her credentials and illustrious career blasts the bunkum of our liberal laments and she has paved the way for women in this country to succeed as much or more as their male counterparts. But more than that, her outspokenness and courage in confronting current political issues is masterful and heroic. Presenting her legal insights and hard hitting criticism in her opening monologues, she confronts the voice of a frustrated nation. How can we aggressive progressives reply to her skilled attacks of our bag of tricks?
So is Judge Jeanine Pirro the real “war on women” warrior and hero that we socialist suffragettes suggest? I’m afraid, even with her prestigious past on women’s issues, she would look us forcefully in our liberal face and answer: “If you include American women in the current political tour de force of tyranny, than the answer would be yes!”
