Gov. Kasich of Ohio Has 1950's Fantasy About Housework


More 1950s retro-crap from a Republican, this time Governor John Kasich of Ohio waxing poetic about women doing laundry.

I never enjoyed doing laundry myself - my husband does it for our family. We're funny that way - sharing chores and stuff. He mows grass and I cook, but I also fix the computer for him, while he does the grocery shopping. He has even changed hundreds of diapers in his lifetime. I realize our lifestyle is so very radical that some politicians might label us "socialists" or "hippies" or something. *eyeroll*

"You know, Jane Portman, Karen Kasich, and Janna Ryan, they operate an awful lot of the time in the shadows," he said, speaking of his wife and those of Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and GOP vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).
"It’s not easy to be a spouse of an elected official," he said. "You know, they’re at home, doing the laundry and doing so many things while we’re up here on the stage getting a little bit of applause, right? They don’t often share in it. And it is hard for the spouse to hear the criticism and to put up with the travel schedule and to have to be at home taking care of the kids. And where is the politician? Out on the road!"

Makes me wish all women had superpowers like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Lots of demons around this political season. Keep a spike handy. Don't get sucked into the Hellmouth, I mean, the dryer. And don't stay "in the shadows" - kick some butt out in the sunlight.
