Mississippi Taliban

Funny but also not really:
[mississippitoday.org]

Republican gubernatorial candidate Rep. Robert Foster denied
a woman reporter for Mississippi Today access to a campaign trip ride along. Foster's campaign director told her she would need to be accompanied by a male colleague.


He's worried somebody will think they're having an affair.

Foster on twitter:
Before our decision to run, my wife and I made a commitment to follow the “Billy Graham Rule”, which is to avoid any situation that may evoke suspicion or compromise of our marriage. I am sorry Ms. Campbell doesn’t share these views, but my decision was out of respect of my wife.

What if Mother rode along instead of a male colleague? She must not be all that busy.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Translation: "I don't trust myself around her, and lack the confidence a grown man would have to address or ignore any remote possibility of alleged impropriety."


So many layers of repressive, retrograde, insecure and vain issues there.

$1 says that if the reporter was old, obese, ugly none of this would have come up. What a moron.

Sounds like he's saying that he can now only be in the company of men.

My gaydar is twitching...

Nah, this is isn't an "actually, I'm secretly gay ... " scenario. It's a Mike Pence-married-his-mom thing. 'Cause ya know, only one woman can ever be PURE. Mom, and the one I marry that's "just like her."


His wife signed up for this life, similarly cloistered and continually fearful. More's the pity I guess.

That's why I said IF.

She seems young and attractive and possibly more um, lively than the crone he married.

Yes I'm unfairly attacking this guy's wife, who I know nothing about. I take it back. I'm sure she's a fine person and an ideal wife.

And yet.

And yet "for whatever reason" the reporter is a threat.

Bottom line, that's his "problem," not mine.

His wife is young and attractive. That's not what this is about.
It's about somebody stuck in another century or another continent with patronizing views of women.

Of course my assessment of his wife was a dumb joke based on nothing.

Yes he's over-reacting to imagined threats and with zero regard to the reporter's credentials.

Yes he's equally also afraid of his own penis."Why is she here? My penis. Why is another woman attractive? My penis. Why might someone accuse me of cheating? My penis. If only I didn't have this penis in public life everything would be OK."

I doubt that classically patriarchal viewpoints that discriminate against women can't exist without that Freudian "id" fear.

Yeah all that or could also be that he's cheated before and is publicly overcompensating for the wife's benefit.

But I'm glad the reporter made a lot of noise about this because all he's really doing is committing illegal discrimination against this reporter.

Blue-green algae in Mississippi waters drive them into mad @#$%& ecstasies. It's out of their control.

Don’t forget Pence. Yes , the VP won’t meet with a woman without his wife present.

I think this is simply pandering to the republican base, many of whom believe that the "me too" is all about militant femi-nazis taking down good, innocent, family men.
