Ladies, I don’t understand some of you and how you choose to vote. But I really don’t understand if you think women shouldn’t be voting. Especially if you are a politician.

I first heard about this strange, right wing, conservative phenomenon with Kansas state senator Kay O’Connor. She said she couldn’t support women’s suffrage today because it started the “erosion of family values.” This was way back in 2001…long before the Tea Party came about. I think she was ahead of her state’s rights time. [source]

Now we can add Mississippe Tea Party leader Janis Lane. Here are her words of wisdom:

“I’m really going to set you back here. Probably the biggest turn we ever made was when the women got the right to vote. Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how than can skewer a person. I do not see that in men. The whole time I worked, I’d much rather have a male boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them…[source]

Exactly the kind of person you want running any kind of political party. Divisive. Sexist. Harshly critical of 50 per cent of the population she’s supposed to be helping.

She does add:

…Because women have the right to vote, I am active, because I want to make sure there is some sanity for women in the political world. It is up to the Christian rednecks and patriots to stand up for our country. Everyone has the right to vote now that’s 18 or over (who is) a legal citizen, and every person that’s 18 and over and a legal citizen should be active in local politics so they can make a change locally, make a change on the state level and make a change in Washington, D.C.”

Thank goodness Jane has our backs…ugh…

With friends like these, who needs enemies.

Does this mean she doesn’t support female politicians?

Does she only campaign for men?

How do women candidates feel about working with her after reading her words? Are they okay with it because they secretly feel the same way?

Is the Tea Party really only for white men? White Christian redneck men?

And when did being a redneck become such a good thing? I thought we were supposed to strive to better ourselves…seriously, people, even the Duck Dynasty folks are just playing a role…

I hope smarter, tougher, wiser women are running for office in her area to counter her ignorance. Or god help all women…
