As someone who is more comfortable in dresses and skirts, I hate the thought that the Supreme Court will force me to wear pants for the rest of my time in the States.
On top of the controlling agenda SCOTUS has been following lately, I also hate that they are wasting time and taxpayer dollars on this, when there are other issues that need attention. Surely somewhere online there is a calculator that breaks down their salaries by the hour or the case.
Well, sure, the real stuff is much more maddening…I was just being pissy for a moment about this one small idiocy.
It’s not hard to guess why pundits are going after Jill and Gisele instead of Joe and John. Attacking someone who is ill or elderly simply because they are ill or elderly is beyond the pale in our culture (for now, at least), even for those pundits whose flexible morals usually find a way to drain-snake around any barricades of decency.
But by placing blame on the wives, these commentators get to spread harmful messages against the president and senator while having plausible deniability against charges of ableism.

Awaiting the inevitable Mike and Ike backlash.
“Hey Mike, why are they picking on us?”
“I dunno Ike, nothing makes sense anymore!”
A woman is to blame?
From the story and the comments at AV Club, people (and when I use people, I’m certain that they are men) are upset because there was infidelity in the Smiths’ marriage and it was the wife. They (and Chris Rock) are upset because the couple agreed to an interview and they believe the husband was humiliated by sitting next to the wife while she answered questions about her infidelity.
I mean, how many times has there been interviews and press conferences of famous men who cheated on their wives? How many times have they had their wives standing next to them as a sign of support?
Edited to change sigh to sign, although sigh could work, too.
Like it’s anyone’s business but the Smiths whatever happened in their marriage…
Sounds like he could use being slapped by JPS, too.
My turn to slap him!
He might could use another smack, honestly… from some women this time…
Yeah, he’s been getting dragged for his history of saying just that (and worse):
