Fossilized Pol

Heather Wilson showed what a luddite and fossil she was last night in her debate with Martin Heinrich.  She is sort of a 90's kind of pol.  1890's that is.  She was music to the ears of the Oil and Coal boys.  They were her lovers for the hour long debate and she showed how much she adored these planet busting characters.  Martin was a guy looking to the future as far as energy production goes.

I got to thinking about Mitt Romney and his strange attitude on women.  I was reminded of a great movie from a few years back called "Pleasantville".  It was about two modern American teenagers who are transported back into a 50's TV sitcom where women were not much more than baby machines and domestic servants.  I have a feeling that Romney would be comfortable in that kind of era.  Check this movie out.  It might give you some insights into Romney.

I just read the Journal's account of that debate. (Yes! It's true. It occasionally happens that I click on a Journal story and it opens up. But don't anyone tell them or they'll freak out down there. The Journal was one of the first newspapers I know of to charge for the online version, them and that guy up in Santa Fe who refuse to print news he doesn't want to hear.)

But yes, I was surprised and delighted to see that Martin Henrich took it to Heather, on several occasions and on some controversial issues like gay marriage.

Maybe he watched Barak Obama's first debate. Maybe he's been reading my comments on your web log. Well, it doesn't matter. We need an advocate in the senate. We need someone who will stand up to the president when he tries to slip that tar sands export oil pipeline through on us.

As for Ms Wilson, I see that she's come up with a clever strategy, but I don't know if it will work in the long run for her to style her hair like Ronald Reagan's.
