Bachmann? Submissive?

I am alternately enraged and amused by Byron York’s question to Bachman at the GOP debate last night about whether she was a “submissive wife.”  Some commentators have pointed out that Bachman herself raised the issue when she said in 2006 that her husband suggested she get a tax law degree and she did so because the Bible said she should be submissive to her husband.

Still, with everything she’s accomplished and her “take no prisoners” attitude in Congress, does anybody seriously believe she’s not her own woman?  In fairness, I seem to remember jokes during the Clinton presidency about who was wearing the pants in the family, and some accused Nancy Reagan of having too much influence (astrological or otherwise) over the presidency.  But come on!

I’m glad the audience booed Byron York when he asked that question.


About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
