Mama Grizzlies, Ewoks and Sarah Palin
One of the more notable events in November this year will likely be the election of a record number of conservative pro-life Republican women to Congress, statehouses and state legislatures. Their impact could be enormous. Sarah Palin launched a movement in 2008 which may well be, long term, the most significant political event of our time: conservative pro-life women running for political office.
Of course every movement has its critics. Emily’s List, the pro-abort group that supports female candidates who hold sacred the right to choose to slay kids in the womb, has put together the video below, which I believe should be entitled: “WHEN EWOKS ATTACK!”
The irony of the Ewok who, while talking about defending her “cub”, was most upset about her “cub” being denied her right to slay her “cub”, was the most humorous, albeit unintentionally so, part of the video.
Palin responded to the video on her facebook page:
Unfortunately, I’ve recently come under attack for speaking up for sisters who seek to serve in public office. The sad part is that the attack comes from other sisters who happen to be on the other side of an issue that has been of great importance to American women from the time of our feminist foremothers, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, down to today. I’m speaking of the issue of life. I feel compelled to offer some advice to our sisters who like to throw stones at those of us who respectfully disagree with them on this issue (and they sometimes refuse to even countenance the fact that some of us can call ourselves feminists and disagree with those who claim the mantle of “real feminists”). First, ladies, it’s hard to take a critic seriously when they lecture you wearing a bear suit. So, it’s difficult for me to drum up much outrage at this latest ad. But, really, lying about a sister while wearing an Ewok outfit is no way to honor our foremothers on the eve of the 90th anniversary of their victory. But, that aside, I’d love to know where you got those get-ups. Halloween is just around the corner, and Piper and Trig would look adorable as little grizzly bears.

O f course here is what the Ewoks are afraid of: Sarah Palin addressing the Susan B. Anthony list on May 14 of this year:
Most politicians could be stamped out with a cookie cutter for all the originality and style they possess. Sarah Palin is most certainly not in that mold. Her impact on American politics is only beginning. She is not a conventional politician and people who judge her by that yardstick completely fail to understand her. She is the leader of a powerful movement of conservative women that has the potential to reshape politics in this country for a very long time.
