Dear Readers: Lipstick Underground and I had a “synching” of our cycles — our cycles of outrage, that is. Our opinion of the Obama Administration and liberal leadership, none too high to begin with, has sunk to Mariana Trench levels.

We are sick and tired of the elites thinking that women’s lives are centered around their reproductive organs. If access to abortion services survived the Reagan administration and contraception has been around since ancient Egypt, then anyone who votes based solely on either of these issues is extremely foolish.

Most women who vote are inclined to be more worried about the cost of gas and healthcare availability in an Obamacare world. However, Team Obama decided it would be a great idea to gin up a fake conflict, pitting poor, helpless co-eds against a heartless, soulless GOP.

How is this “War on Women” going? Lipstick Underground reports:

It’s the Economy, Stupid!

Both Democrat and Republican leaders completely miss the reason Obama’s approval numbers are down despite SlutGate.

I think the “War on Women” is more along the lines of the film, “Wag the Dog“: Since, the president does not seem to have much of a chance of being re-elected, one of his advisers contacts a top Hollywood producer in order to manufacture a war that the president can heroically end, all through mass media.

I can imagine the discussion now: I am sure it went along these lines:

Stanley Motss: The President will be a hero. He brought peace.
Conrad ‘Connie’ Brean: But there was never a war.
Stanley Motss: All the greater accomplishment.

It’s “Wag the Dog” on steroids!!! And it seems Bill Maher is the first “Friendly Fire” casualty.

So sad for Team Obama that this isn’t playing out quite this way. Another woman, Tammy Bruce, provides the baseline reason for Obama’s collapsing support numbers: Are We Better Off Than We Were 4 Years Ago? Uh, No.

(MUT Note:  It seems Obama is just aces “Warring on Women“; as a PUMA, I got a front-row seat to that barrage I will not soon forget.  But, I digress).

Lipstick Underground (aka Sarah Bond) and I were talking about her interview with the San Diego Union Tribune Reporter. The report is: Anger over spiking gas prices aimed at Obama.

Sarah Bond and her husband bought their home in Valley Center, about one hour from downtown San Diego, so their two young children could grow up close enough to nature yet not too far from their favorite destinations. But with gas prices soaring, they just don’t get out as much.

“It’s no more going to the beach, no more taking drives to the mountains. It’s school and groceries and what we could do at home,” Bond said. “We might as well live in Oklahoma for what it’s costing us.”

Bond, co-founder of the SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition, said she’s frustrated with lawmakers and the president for not making energy more accessible, “not exploiting our natural resources in the clean, environmentally sound way that only Americans can do,” she said.

In light of the “Managing Media as a Tea Partier” perspective I am offering, I asked Sarah what “got left on the cutting room floor”. Sarah noted that, due to the limits of print journalism, everyone quoted sounded “simplistic”. For example, Sarah detailed some of the complexities of international oil trade, referenced the Gulf of Hormuz, and mentioned her solar powered home.However, we both agree that the article was fairly accurate in presenting Tea Party attitudes.

Related to energy, a new friend of the Shrine (Teri O’Brien, who has the awesome title of America’s Original Conservative Warrior Princess), has a piece connecting beef consumption to global warming. No science is too wacky for state-based scientists. Check out: It’s Not Your Fault, Tubby. It’s “Climate Change.” Teri has a BlogTalkRadio Show I will be checking out: The Teri O’Brien Show

To conclude this treatise on what voting women really think, especially in terms of mainstream media “reports”, here is the dynamic Kira Davis discussing the Soledad O’Brien hysterics over tweets mocking her “Critical Race Theory” pwning by Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak. Soledad wants us to stop tweeting her:

I would ask ladies to consider this about the current GOP line-up for President: The likely nominee, Mitt Romney, was quite befuddled when ABC debate host George Stephanopoulos asked about states banning contraceptives. In fact, take a good look:



I ask you: Does Mitt really look like he cares about your lady parts?

Here is a helpful hint, regarding the women’s vote, that future Presidential advisers would be smart to keep in mind:

Despite rumors to the contrary, the organ that we use when voting is this:

EGYPTOPHILIA

An update to take me back to my Egyptology roots. I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a HAPPY PI DAY! I also wanted to share that the one of the earliest known approximations of pi date from around 1900 BC, found in the Egyptian Rhind Papyrus. Though the ancient Egyptians didn’t know the value of pi, they seem to have used an approximation during construction of the pyramids at Giza, Abusir, and Medium. So, even more reason to love this day! 🙂

Too bad many modern Egyptians are keen on destroying their ancient heritage.
