UPDATE: Geraldine Ferraro: A Tribute (A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice)

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on March 26, 2011

As many of you have heard, Geraldine Ferraro passed away this morning at the age of 75 from blood cancer. As a young woman, I have always admired Mrs. Ferraro because she did so much for women and helped to shatter a glass ceiling that at one time seemed unbreakable. Unlike many other Democrats, Mrs. Ferraro was unafraid to stand up and speak out against her own party, which made me respect her even more. I will never forget watching her on Fox News shortly after Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate. As a woman, she was so proud at the possibility of a woman holding the second-highest office in the land. Although she and Sarah disagreed on many, many issues, and Ferraro supported President Obama during the 2008 election, she looked past these differences, which speaks to her integrity, wisdom and strength of character.

As a young woman, I always will be grateful for Mrs. Ferraro’s service and the sacrifice she made for her country. She forever will be a role model to me for everything she represented. Although she is no longer physically with us, her fight for women and her love of country will live on! Thank you, Geraldine, for everything you did for women like me! Thank you for defending women, regardless of party, and for never foundering in your mission for the advancement of women in politics and beyond! Thank you for your sacrifice and your steadfast, unwavering love for America!!! You will forever be missed!!!

I leave you with one of my favorite television clips of Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin together for the first time on Fox News. Click here to watch.

Tucker Carlson “Blames” Charlie Sheen for his Sexist Behavior: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on March 1, 2011

My good friend and co-host, Camille Friend, over at The Design Conservative wrote an excellent piece last night, bringing to my attention a recent comment Political Pundit and Daily Caller Founder Tucker Carlson tweeted (and later permanently deleted). In this tweet, Mr. Carlson took it upon himself to call former Alaska Governor, author and Political Contributor Sarah Palin a “MILF” or in his exact words a “milfistan.”  This is a term that not only serves to degrade and demean the female sex, but shows a total lack of respect and common human decency. I am not about to go into detail about the meaning of this word, if it can even be called that, so you will have to take my word for it or go surf the web. For those of you out there who have never heard of this term, I am sure you will immediately realize the stupidity Mr. Carlson illustrated in describing Sarah this way.

We hear many members of the far left speak this way about female candidates like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann and political contributors like Michelle Malkin, but to hear an uncouth statement like this come from a so-called conservative cuts the wound even deeper. In making comments like this, he has basically offended women across the country regardless of political ideology.  This type of disgusting talk has unfortunately become the norm in today’s political climate.

Individuals like Carlson, who get paid for their political commentary, have forgotten that in order to be taken seriously, you have to remain respectful and hold at least some form of a moral code to which you live your life.  Perhaps my friend, Camille, put it best:

If you *must* use locker room language, save it for the locker room.  Don’t display your inner-most Neanderthal to your 23,000+ Twitter followers – some of whom will take the opportunity to offer their own crass retort.  Surely, we can expect more from you, Mr. Carlson – can’t we?

I have always respected Mr. Carlson because he has done a lot to advance the conservative movement with his commentary and writings. With this said, I have lost a lot of respect for this man given his most recent comments. I would hope that Mr. Carlson, the man, would apologize or at least restrain himself from making comments like this again, but it seems as if this is not going to happen anytime soon given his most recent tweet posted moments ago:

Apparently Charlie Sheen got control of my Twitter account last night while I was at dinner. Apologies for his behavior.

Mr. Carlson, wise up. Joking around and blaming Charlie Sheen for your ridiculous tweet is about as ridiculous as blaming President George W. Bush for the rain we had this past weekend here in my home state of California. Not cool, Mr. Carlson, not cool….

Sarah Palin Continues to Inspire and Fascinate America and the Rest of the World: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on February 10, 2011

Happy birthday, Governor Palin!!! As many of you know, I started this blogging journey, in part, because of Sarah Palin. When I first started blogging in May 2009, I did not know how long my blogging attempts would last nor did I know the success I would have. After all, there are so many amazing common-sense conservative bloggers out there, and I thank all the bloggers out there who continue to inspire me and the millions of conservatives like me. Bloggers, writers and commentators like Michelle Malkin, Leslie Sanchez, Dan Riehl, Jedediah Bila, Robert Stacy McCain, Andrew Brietbart, Sissy Willis, Jennifer Cubachi, Adrienne Ross, Whitney Pitcher, SE Cupp, Stacy Drake, Patrick Adams, Camille Friend and so many others inspire me to continue to want to be a better writer, so to you I say “THANK YOU.”

Finally, I want to thank Sarah Palin for all she has done in the name of freedom and liberty. Happy birthday!!!

Sarah, after blogging for nearly two years, I am still inspired by you and all you stand for. Unlike so many people of our time, you are unafraid to stand up and to speak out, doing the dirty work so many refuse to do. You is both unafraid and determined to make America that shining city on a hill.

In honor of Sarah, I have decided to take a step back into time and re-post my very first blog entry. I cannot believe everything that has happened in the time since this post. Enjoy:

The night before John McCain was to announce his running mate, speculation was running rampant. Journalists were fighting tooth and nail in an attempt to get any shred of information regarding the “top-secret” pick. For me, personally, the “night before” speculation has become a “where were you the night before the world was introduced to Sarah Palin?” Just as I am able to recall where I was when OJ Simpson, hidden away in his infamous White Ford Bronco, was being chased down the highway by police, I am able to recall where I was on, what would become, the eve Republican-Party history would be made. I was watching Hannity and Colmes with my mom, listening to the guys’ debate on who they felt would be picked. Names such as Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, Jindal and even Lieberman were being thrown around like a football.  As a young conservative woman, I have tremendous respect for all of the men above, but I did not have the enthusiasm I would soon have when I turned the news on the next morning.

Sarah Palin IS the reason why I have centered this blog on strong, conservative female women. It was Sarah Palin who re-energized a party that was split. Before Sarah Palin, John McCain was struggling to stay afloat, struggling to keep up with the glitzy, charismatic candidate that was Barack Obama. Sarah Palin was his “hole in one.” I remember saying to my mom: “Why doesn’t the Republican Party have any strong, conservative female candidates?” Well, I didn’t have to wait that long for my answer because it came the next morning in the form of AK Governor Sarah Palin. I will never forget hugging my mom, tears in my eyes saying that I finally had an American political role model.  Here she was, a self-described hockey mom who had a loving husband and five adorable children. What was not to love about her? Like many, I have so much in common with her; she is an every woman of sorts.  An individual who started out just like many Americans, who learned to work hard and in the end achieve great things. A woman who mothers can cite as an example to their young daughters that they too can have a family and be whatever they want to be.  Of all the decisions John McCain made during the campaign, his choice of running mate was the best by far.

On a final note, I have to admit that it was fun to watch the mainstream media trip over themselves throughout the day of the announcement as they scrambled to uncover any little tidbit they could about the Alaskan governor: “She hunts, she fishes, she’s the hottest governor in the coldest state, she was a beauty pageant contestant…” The media could not get enough of Sarah. Although the stories about her soon turned into negative tabloid journalism, it was memorable to see that for once, Barack Obama had been overshadowed. It is as if Sarah Palin and Barack Obama were characters straight from the Brady Bunch, with Barack crying out “Sarah, Sarah, Sarah.”

Senator Schumer: Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader? A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on February 1, 2011

Remember how a large number of House of Representative members took the time to read the Constitution on the House floor? Well, it looks as if the members of the Senate should consider doing the very same, well at least if your name is Chuck Schumer, that is. Recently, on CNN‘s State of the Union, he said the following about the three branches of government:

We Have three Branches of Government. We Have a House, a Senate and a President.

The House, the Senate and the President- yes, you read it right. Is that your final answer, Senator Schumer? Because if it is, you’re wrong. Perhaps if you were listening in history class or even to your constituents, you would realize that the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial. I know this, and I bet if you asked a fifth-grade class, the majority of them would know this too, but do the media choose to report this misstep? If you said, “no,” then you are exactly right. Now, imagine if the tables were turned and Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann had said such a thing. The media would turn around and make it the top story on the five o’clock news. Leftist so-called journalists like Chris Matthews would get all giddy and develop a tingling all over just describing every epic detail of what was said- everything from the way they said it, to whether or not they were looking at the camera. I guarantee it!

This is yet another example of the world we live in today. While it is perfectly all right for a liberal, senior member of the Senate to screw up, it is intolerable and down-right unintelligent if a member of the Republican party were to so much as utter the occasional “umm” during an interview. This is the world we live in today. A world in which liberals can mess up and misstate elements of American history, but everyone else better watch their “p’s” and “q’s.” How ironic is this coming from a man who said this shortly after Palin was selected to be John McCain’s running mate:

After the great success of the Democratic convention, the choice of Sarah Palin is surely a Hail Mary pass. It is a real roll of the dice and shows how John McCain, Karl Rove et al realize what a strong position the Obama-Biden team and Democrats in general are in in this election. Certainly the choice of Palin puts to rest any argument about inexperience on the Democratic team and while Palin is a fine person, her lack of experience makes the thought of her assuming the presidency troubling. I particularly look forward to the Biden-Palin debate in Missouri.
Well, Senator Schumer, I guarantee Palin never will utter the same gaffe you made this weekend. Instead of uttering ridiculous statements, I suggest Senator Schumer take a play out of Palin’s playbook and brush up on the history of government- maybe it is time to brush up on the Constitution because until you do, I will be left wondering if you are smarter than the fifth graders you represent…

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on November 9, 2010

Political Columnist and Contributor Jedediah Bila

Camille and I have a great show lined up for this Thursday night (11/11). October’s shows were full of great guests- everyone from Bristol Palin and Eddie Burke to Joe Miller, and November is expected to be just as great! We are pleased to announce that we will be joined by phenomenal blogger and political contributor Jedediah Bila. Camille and I first got to know Jedediah via Twitter when we were helping with Eddie Burke’s campaign for Alaska lieutenant governor. Jedediah was nice enough to conduct a Q&A with Eddie that was published in the Daily Caller. For those of you who know of Jededidah’s work as a writer and commentator, not to mention an upcoming author, you know that she has an amazing way with words and the quality of her work is both fair and honest. Her work is a favorite of Mark Levin and Shaun Hannity. She is a regular on the Fox News Channel with regular appearances on Hannity and Red Eye. Camille and I cannot wait to talk with her about the mid-term elections and the rise of women in politics.

Make sure to tune in this Thursday night at 7 pacific/10 eastern to The People’s Post. You can listen online at blogtalkradio.com/thepeoplespost-live.

***Make sure to check back often before this Thursday-night’s show as I will be adding more guests to the schedule.***
