    Mia Love’s Guiding Principle: “Mia, your mother and I never took a handout. You will not be a burden to society. You will give back.” 

    Mia Love overwhelmingly won her primary last night to compete for the newly formed 4th congressional district with just over 70% of the vote.  I would say they like her in Utah.

    She has been a very successful mayor in a rapidly growing city that was once more of an agricultural area.  She has been able to provide the citizens with the services that were needed without bloating the budgets and keeping taxes as low as possible.  See it can be done.  She is living proof of it.

    Mia is a first generation American.  Her parents came from Haiti with virtually nothing besides their clothes and worked hard to provide for themselves and their children.

    Mia was one of the first women that the newly formed ShePac,  endorsed.

    She has a compelling story and will go a long way into getting our country back to its founding principles and help get our bloated budget under control.

    Utah doesn’t elect a great many democrats, so she has a very good shot at becoming a freshman congresswoman.

    I think she will make a mighty fine addition to the congressional black caucus don’t you?   We need to continue to shake it up.

    Visit her webpage here.

    I need to find out if we are going to be doing Ten Bucks Friday again this year, she will need to get on the voting list if so.

    President and publisher of Regnery Publishing, which has published over 50 best- selling books during her tenure.

With more than 30 years of experience in law, politics and public policy, Ms. Mitchell advises corporations, nonprofit and issue organizations, candidates, campaigns, and individuals on state and federal campaign finance law, election law, and compliance issues related to lobbying, ethics and financial disclosure.

    Conservative and first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Worked alongside President Reagan to defeat communism and promote the values of freedom and limited government. Though not an American, Lady Thatcher’s conservative leadership in the United Kingdom has been an inspiration to the U.S. Conservative Movement and to many all over the world.

    Republican Women Win Big 

    It’s a beautiful thing:) All challengers of the old way of doing political business, dubbed Mama Grizzlies and backed by former Governor Sarah Palin, emblematic of the Tea Party moms who have become involved as never before, Republican women win big in primary races across the country.

    Jobs and the economy dominate.

    More here.

    …These are the races I know about. Maybe you know of others.

      According to former New Yorker editor Tina Brown, all these evil Republican women “are kind of a blow to feminism” and “wing nuts.”

      Oh, I do so love polite political discourse…

      Tina Brown. A real role model. Partier, name dropper and I think she nearly wrecked that magazine. Financially I mean.

      A real authority on working women and on what’s important to women. Yeah right.

    The Political Rape of Nikki Haley 

    Much as I mostly disagree with Kathleen Parker, the WaPo excuse for a sort of rightie who went for Obama in a big way, she’s mostly right on this one. Aside from the credibility of Folks. And how can we forget her disgusting column suggesting John McCain had the hots for Palin and that’s why he chose her as his VP. As No Sheeples notes in the previous post, some have no decent experience, some have not learned from experience. Perhaps Parker has. Maybe she is atoning for that:

    This obsession with people’s personal lives, including the hand-wringing analyses of Al and Tipper Gore’s marriage, has turned us into a nation of purse-lipped old maids. No offense to purses. I’ve resisted commenting on the Gores’ decision to split after 40 years of marriage because what possibly could I know? Apologies to the deeply conflicted, but the Gores’ divorce has no bearing whatsoever on my life.

    I reluctantly decided to weigh in on the Haley story because therein lie issues of more general consequence. This isn’t only politics at its worst. It’s a persecution, a witch hunt, a political rape. “All I know to do is fight,” said Haley by phone Friday. “Just stay strong and keep a smile on your face. . . . I refuse to let this distract me.”

    As we know there is a special virulence reserved for conservative women, not only political bloggers, but those who run for office.

    It’s brutish power, it’s thuggish warning. It makes it more difficult for women to run, especially if they have families, especially young ones.

    How to combat this? Shine a light on the ugliness. Shame those who would shame.

    The Clintons wrung their hands about the politics of personal destruction even as they engaged in it. Democrat identity politics demonize those who don’t conform. The Left, led by this president resort to ad hominem attacks when they can’t debate the issue.

    And now we see this same kind of nastiness in a Republican primary in South Carolina. Shame on those men. And if you can, Vote Nikki Haley tomorrow. Standing strong.
