By now I think the evidence is overwhelming. If there were a political beauty pageant Republicans would win hands down, which is just something else that grinds the gears of the liberals. Today a story creating some buzz is about a recently elected Republican lawmaker in Tennessee, Julia Hurley, that was *gasp*, a former Hooters employee, who unseated an incumbent Democrat. Worse still, she was a single mother at the tender age of 15.
Hurley now works as a consultant and entrepreneur. She is a Southern Baptist and a member of the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America.Damn those rednecks clinging to their guns and bibles.
Actually, she is a case study in how you approach life. If you wish to wallow in self pity and be a victim, then you are prime material to be a liberal and a Democrat. If, on the other hand, you choose to deal with the issues and obstacles that occur in your life, take some responsibility for your actions, and work hard, you can still realize your dreams in this country. That is why I get so infuriated every time somebody trots out that tired old horse argument of fairness. Life isn't fair. Sometimes bad things happen due to our decisions and actions. Sometimes we get blindsided by events beyond our control. What matters is how we handle them and make the best of these challenging times.
Congratulations to Ms. Hurley, although I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for any sort of endorsement from any of those women's rights folks. Just like most of the conservative women in politics, she continues to shred the stereotypes perpetuated by liberals who claim to possess so much expertise and knowledge of the conservative mind. We know this because they are constantly telling conservatives how they should act and when they don't fit those stereotypes they just get flummoxed and wind up pouting in the corner until they can find the next target of their righteous outrage. Like ChickFilA for daring to provide food to people attending a meeting.
