DC Trawler

If you’re a stay-at-home mom, Democrat strategist Hilary Rosen would like you to shut up and make her a sandwich (UPDATED)

Font Size:

Last night was a busy one for fans of liberal dumbness. First Joe Muto, AKA Gawker’s “Fox Mole,” completely destroyed his career in television for the chance to post a video of Mitt Romney talking about horses. Perhaps sensing a challenge, Hilary Rosen — frequent White House visitor, Obama advisor, and even worse, former head of the RIAA — then went on CNN (remember them?) and said this:

First Rosen told the bizarre, ridiculous lie that somehow the Republicans are behind the “Republicans are waging a war on women” rhetoric, now that it has completely failed. She went on to tell Ann Romney to shut up about the economy because all she’s ever done with her life is raise five children:

“With respect to economic issues, I think actually that Mitt Romney’s right, that ultimately, women care more about the economic well-being of their families and the like. But he doesn’t connect on that issue either. What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying, ‘Well, my wife tells me what women really care about are economic issues.’ And, ‘When I listen to my wife, that’s what I’m hearing.’ Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing — in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and why we worry about their future.”

She sure told Ann Romney. Stop flappin’ your lips about the economy, woman, and squeeze out some more babies! Rosen also said that “Mitt Romney is really old-fashioned when it comes to women.” Yeah, especially the way he listens to his wife and respects her opinions. What a sexist pig.

A woman should have the right to choose. And if she chooses to focus on raising a family — the easy way out, according to Rosen — she should put a sock in it and get back in the kitchen.

Imagine if, say, Rush Limbaugh said that women’s opinions don’t matter if they don’t have jobs outside the home. Media Matters would melt down.

Apparently, the Obama campaign doesn’t think this message will resonate with voters in November:

Elsewhere on the left, some were insisting that Rosen has nothing to do with the Obama administration. Which is of course why David Axelrod and Jim Messina feel the need to publicly shun her.

Rosen spent the remainder of the evening showing off her expertise in damage control:

Gotta love that passive-aggressive appeal to sisterhood there at the end. Worth a try, Hilary!

Rosen also took to HuffPo and CNN.com to put her insult to millions of women across the country in writing, and of course to proclaim her own victimhood. She’s a centrist, in the sense that when she finds herself in a hole, she digs to the center of the earth.

Here’s Ann Romney’s response, which might be the best inaugural post in the history of Twitter:

Hilary Rosen: the first suicide bomber in the Democratic Party’s War on Women.

Update: According to Rosen, the Republicans have been making the Democrats say stuff like this:

Update: Well, this explains a lot. Just a couple of months ago, Rosen was hired as a media trainer for… Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Update: The Many Careers of Hilary Rosen.

Update: Jonah Goldberg has more on the Democrats’ “War on Women” rhetoric, which Rosen ludicrously tried to deny. As we’ve seen for the last four years, that’s the Obama way: Create divisions wherever possible, and if it fails, deny it and blame it on the people you accused in the first place.

Update: Guess Hilary forgot to tell Debbie to knock it off with the “war on women” junk:

That was a long time ago, though. Last Sunday.

Update: Speaking of our friend Debbie, you know you’ve messed up when even she won’t parrot your rhetoric.

Update: And the kiss of death…

All we need is Keith Olbermann to leap to Rosen’s defense and I may die of utter joy.

Update: Once again, I stand in the shadow of the mighty Iowahawk:

Update: Instead of keeping her trap shut and getting Hilary Rosen another beer, Ann Romney talks back.

Update: Am I in Heaven? Did I die and go to Heaven?

Update: Apparently, being a media strategist means knowing how to “apologize” in such a way that it only compounds the damage. To paraphrase her latest statement: “I’m sorry for saying the thing that you idiots are only pretending to be offended about.” Hilary Rosen’s ego is your best entertainment value.
