DWS Weighs in With Her Own Definitive List of Women’s ‘Priorities’

Last weekend, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, appeared on CNN’s State of the Union. and said “The focus of the Republican Party on turning back the clock for women …(it) shows how callous and insensitive they are towards women’s priorities.”  Let’s take a look at what DWS believes are the priorities of women over the last couple of months.

DWS thinks that women care desperately about contraception, even if it violates religious beliefs. She was a veritable fangirl for Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, and became even more fervent after Rush Limbaugh used an ill-chosen word to describe her.

Conclusion: A priority for women is free contraception from any establishment.

Another DWS-approved priority of women is not having feelings hurt. This only refers to conservatives, as she went on Bill Maher’s show after he said much worse. We know DWS doesn’t accept the “funny” defense.

Conclusion: A priority for women is outrage over hurt feelings, but only if hurt by conservatives.

All Americans are worried about the economy. DWS feels our pain! She knows that we are concerned about the economy, and Republicans just don’t understand.

But then, there are those pesky, inconvenient facts, which she constantly has to “correct” by lying. These facts are especially awkward when it comes to women. Women have been hit disproportionately hard as we teeter on the brink of economic collapse, but that is not a priority.

Conclusion: A priority for women is focus on the troubled economy, but only when she can argue the Right is at fault. Obama’s abysmal track record is something women with which women are not concerned.

Women are about being able to “choose.” DWS was even called a heroine by Planned Parenthood. A woman is attacked for choosing to stay home to raise her children? Not so heroic. One of her advisers, Hilary Rosen, set off a firestorm by saying that Ann Romney (who has raised five sons, beat breast cancer and is battling MS) has never worked a day in her life. Then she didn’t back down.

Women everywhere were genuinely outraged. Where was DWS? Making the media rounds on this issue? Nope. Instead, at noon the next day, she tweeted “Disappointed in @hilaryr ‘s comments. As a mother of 3 there’s no doubt that raising children is work.” That was the absolute minimum admonishment she could have mustered. Then she changed the subject.

Her next tweet read “Almost all the women @MittRomney‘s trotting out to defend his record on women voted against [the] Lilly Ledbetter [Fair Pay Act of 2009] and fair pay.”

This interesting attempt at distraction doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. It recently came to light that the White House pays women less than men, and I missed her outrage.

Conclusion: A priority for women is making choices of which DWS approves. Another priority is equal pay under certain circumstances, but this can be waived if DWS digs the employer.

We can draw a few conclusions as to the overall priorities of women as seen by DWS.

The top priority of American women is to avoid children. First by contraception, then by abortion. If you are unfortunate enough to have a child, please, by all means, get a real job.

We can also conclude that women prioritize focus on the economy. We are concerned about unemployment and equal wages to the extent that Republicans are to blame. Women do not care about what the Democratic Party has done to their pocketbooks.

Women care about being judged or called names by conservatives only.

All of these work towards toward DWS’ ultimate objective, the top of priority of women according to DWS: A second term for Barack Obama.
