Ian Robinson, writing for the Calgary Sun , has been prompted by the recent election of Danielle Smith as the leader of the Wildrose Alliance, to explain why right wing women rock. Danielle Smith has been compared to Sarah Palin. Smith, dubbed a “rock-ribbed libertarian” by one Canadian commentator, took the leadership of the opposition Wildrose Alliance in an overwhelming victory this month.
The only sensible footwear you’ll find in a right-wing woman’s closet are the Nike cross-trainers that go with her gym membership.
Everything else has a three-inch heel. Minimum.
Left-wing drabs recycle. Right-wing women shop — and the government measures how much they shop every month to find out whether we’re still in a recession. Basically, the world economy depends on right-wing women buying shoes.
Left-wing women burn enormous quantities of fossil fuels to drive across the city to a farmer’s market to purchase virtually the same carrot you can get at the neighbourhood Sobey’s a couple of blocks from your house for half the price, all in the name of making the environment happy.
A right-wing woman hits the gym, swings past Sobey’s and has dinner on the table by the time you get home … while her left-wing counterpart is still stuck in traffic listening to Sarah McLachlan on her iPod and feeling morally superior about her carrot choices.
And when that plate of food is put in front of you by the right-wing hottie you had the good sense to marry, it will be 100% tofu-free. If you’re lucky, she just remembered to buy steak and forgot about the carrot entirely.
And in case you’re not convinced, to indicate the utter superiority of the right-wing woman over the left-wing variant … just turn on The View.
The left has Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg.
We’ve got Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
