Rise of the conservative woman: “Fire from the Heartland” premieres tonight in DC

Via Stephen Kruiser, who’s seen the entire film.

It also has Reps. Michele Bachmann, Jean Schmidt, and Cynthia Lummis working hard within the system. Bachmann’s famous grilling of Timothy Geithner is one of the highlights of the film (and featured in the trailer on the website). The film also features Ann Coulter, Michelle Easton, Michelle Malkin, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, Dana Loesch, S.E Cupp, Jenny Beth Martin, Jamie Radtke, Sonnie Johnson and Michelle Moore. These women represent old and new media and a cross-section of the Tea Party movement. In short, they’re everywhere.

I experienced a quiet mix of embarrassment and gratitude during the screening. It occurred to me that one of the reasons these women have taken such a prominent role in recent years is that so many of the men who were left in charge of the conservative movement failed it and us miserably. Many readers will no doubt say “Conservative men didn’t fail us, Republicans failed us.” The simple fact is that many elected Republican conservatives have been screwing things up since the late 1990s. Now we’re faced with the prospect of having a great November but keeping the good ol’ boy network intact and basically suffering through the same congressional leadership that drove Barack Obama and this Democratic congress into power.

The trailer looks great, although in practice, it kinda sorta operates as a campaign ad for a certain governor turned likely presidential candidate, no? Did I catch a … grizzly bear roaring in there?

The takeaway line: “I am no victim. I am no victim.” As further reading in that vein, check out this very sharp piece by S.E. Cupp ripping into phony charges of sexism against men like Karl Rove who’ve dared to criticize Christine O’Donnell. No-victim exit quotation: “Someone should tell her that if she can’t stand the heat, she’d better get out of the kitchen.”

And what I like and agree with as to what Michelle Malkin says is that it’s important to support candidates for office who will represent Conservative, limited government issues and positions.

I tend to think it’s a good thing, like Malkin does, and that it shouldn’t be assigned to one gender or the other. I’m always suspicious of gender-preferential positions, anyway, regardless and it’s just as offensive when women pose for and as such as it is when men do so.

Is Ms. O’Donnell still complaining about her coverage? If so, she must indeed move on to substance.

Fantastic. I’m lost for more words, other than adjectives. Fantastic.

Way to go girls. Women are the natural born leaders who let their husband and male children bring home the staples sho she can put them into something consumable.

Today, the men in the workplace and government are starting to throw a tantrum because the men are not getting what they want. It’s now time for the old boy network to have a ‘time out’, while the women put U.S. back on track.

Once, we start act civilized again they will let us go out a play with the others.

Very cool. Why can’t I buy it on iTunes as a download?

I love them every one. It will be my life’s greatest pleasure watching them disembowel libs.
