[Scott] Walker aide under fire for 'unnatural sexiness'
The Washington Examiner ^ | April 16, 2012 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 04/17/2012 1:30:05 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Even as the Democratic National Committee profits from the "Republican war on women" meme, liberals opposing Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., have decided to attack the governor by targeting a woman in his campaign on the basis of her history of "unnatural sexiness."

Ciara Matthews, Walker's communications director, is under fire for being both pro-life and a former Hooters restaurant waitress. "Profitting (sic) from selling a plasticized form of unnatural sexiness designed to arouse men while simultaneously believing that women should be forced to face the 'consequences' of actually giving into to their sexual desires is a pretty backward way of thinking," the Jezebel's Erin Gloria Ryan suggested, while apparently trying to embarrass Matthews by posting a "hilarious" photo of her wearing a Hooters uniform. (Curiously, Ryan also said that Matthews' "shouldn't be faulted" for working at Hooters.)

"What is the connection between my being pro-life and working at Hooters?" Matthews countered in an interview with The Capital Times, an outlet that self-describes as a "progressive voice" in Wisconsin. "Is there a hypocritical angle here that I’m not aware of? Is Hooters performing abortions?" Matthews also explained that she worked at Hooters to make money as a college student.........

Wisconsin's Property Taxes Drop for First Time in 12 Years "Governor Scott Walker's pledge to balance the budget without raising taxes was a key plank of his 2010 campaign, and his fulfillment of that pledge will be a major campaign theme leading up to the June 5 recall election. “Our reforms have reversed a decade of property tax increases from previous administrations,” Walker said in a statement on Monday. “For the first time in over ten years, the average property taxpayer will have more money in his or her pocket than the year before.” Walker's office noted that property taxes had risen by 43 percent since 1998, and "the average homeowner would have paid an additional $700 over the biennium" without the 2011 budget reforms."......

Would the leftists once and for all give us the definition of the “perfect woman”? Is she working or isn’t she? Is she self-reliant or a ward of the state? Is she capable of paying for her own contraception or not? Does she become a Mom or not?

It seems to change weekly now. I’m so very confused because the orders are changing all the time.

All I truly know is that we’ve always been at war with Eastasia.

April 17, 2012: Protest expected as Walker speaks to Illinois Chamber Tuesday "SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker travels to the capital of Illinois Tuesday, April 17th – a place he’s used as a political punching bag for the last year. Walker was invited by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce to explain his approach to balancing Wisconsin’s state budget, but some are not ready to roll out the welcome mat. Union workers are planning a big protest that may involve as many as 2,000 people.

Walker is headed into the “lion’s den” Tuesday – Springfield, Illinois – the emblem of all he says is wrong with government. Walker has made no secret about his plans to lure Illinois businesses across the border into Wisconsin, and Tuesday, he plans to bring that message to the Illinois Chamber of Commerce.

Why would the Illinois Chamber of Commerce invite Walker to speak? “This year it was very obvious that Scott Walker was the right person to bring because of the fact that Wisconsin and Illinois have both suffered serious budget deficits. Wisconsin’s solution was to end with a balanced budget and not raise taxes,” Doug Whitley with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce said."....................

With Walker's policies, unemployment in WI is below 7%, state tax receipts from wages are up [allowing lower property taxes], and he wants to attract new businesses into the state [which will lower unemployment further and raise more in tax receipts via wages].

People are vote their pocketbooks in the recall and Walker will at least squeak by with 51%-52% - or maybe even blow out with 57% of the vote ...

Considering what the Democrats have for “women”, this young lady looks good to me.

Hilary Rosen, lesbian, anti-conservative women. Hillary Clinton - unknown. Anita Dunn - Maoist. Michele Obama - unprintable. Valerie Jarrett - red; key friend of Van Jones - Marxist revolutionary and con-man. Elena Kagan - don’t ask. Sotomayer - a wise Latino woman. Kathleen Sebelius - renegade Catholic, liar, and leftist. Barbara Boxer - whatever; big mouth; Maxine Waters - the best reason to remain bald. Sandra Fluke - sounds like a nymphomaniac to me - no normal woman could use $3,000 worth of contraceptives in three years, and live.

And the creeps go on.

Heavily made up and hair just done, she looks a bit like Reese Witherspoon; that is to say, an ordinary looking girl, heavily made up, and with her hair just done. I see the extremely-thin eyebrows are back in style.

She’s supposed to be what kind of a controversial, divisive, extremist?

It takes a LOT to strike me dumb, but this quote... this quote is... I really can't conjure a proper reaction.

What they're essentially saying is "this girl is a slut for working at Hooters and will be raped for working at Hooters and will mother a child because of that rape and should have an abortion so as to not ruin her life."

Just... wow.

I'd say beyond "pro-abortion" and "voting Democrat" they can't.

Otherwise it's situational and can change not just weekly but daily or even hourly (or minute to minute for that matter).

If you're talking about Sarah Palin, the Perfect Woman aborts her Down's Syndrome child, has her teenage daughter's baby aborted, but of course stays at home and takes care of her family. If you're talking about Ann Romney, the Perfect Woman would have had her own career and a nanny.

Now, if you are talking about women on the other side, whatever decisions they made and whatever they did was Perfect, or at least the Best They Could Do.

Personally, I'm a little tired of this War on Women crap. Get the government out of our lives and our wallets and women, like men, will do a whole lot better. We don't need the government running our lives, either.

Ever thought of getting MARRIED, Erin? Oh! How "backward" of me! (perhaps she is such an undesirable mate that she can't get married, who knows?)

Hooter’s has good food. Hooter’s girls don’t have anything to be ashamed of. Women on the beach wear far less clothing.

My second daughter turned 18 and she is large-chested, so she said she was going to work at Hooters for college money. My wife went ballistic - having never actually been inside a Hooters, she could only imagine the evil which lurked inside.

When I finally convinced her to step inside, she was pleasantly surprised both by the less-than skin-showing clothing and the quality of the food. When we left, she said, "She can work here - this isn't a bad place, at all."

Most people who complain about Hooters, have probably never actually been INSIDE a Hooters! They have simply been told that it is a misogynistic, He-Man-Woman-Haters-Club meeting place!

It’s the “pro-life” part that bothers Ryan.
Notice her reference to “forced to accept the consequences of sex”. This is what irks her. Consequences for extramarital sexual behavior.
