Go Johnny! His parents don’t look like a whole lot of fun but young John Roberts Jr. was gettin’ down at the White House Tuesday night.
Well, this is just oxymoronic. Jane Roberts, the wife of President Bush’s Supreme Court nominee, is a Catholic, and I think we can assume she is conservative – and yet she thinks of herself as a feminist.
Apparently, Mrs. Roberts – shown above (she’s the one in pink) – is a an ardent opponent of a woman’s right to choose. The Los Angeles Times reports that she “provides her name, money and professional advice to a small Washington organization — Feminists for Life of America — that offers counseling and educational programs. The group has filed legal briefs before the high court challenging the constitutionality of abortion.”
Who knew you could be feminist and conservative? I suppose rightwing feminists are for empowering women – except when they become pregnant, at which point the government should force them to give birth, whether they choose to or not. Whether they were raped or not.
It’s like queer conservatives, I guess. Makes no sense.
