    There is just a level of viciousness here that really exceeds anything to the left of Rush Limbaugh.

    There is simply no room, in their worldview, for any woman who has any degree of independence whatsoever. The very fact of not submitting to the husband is ipso facto proof of their overt tyranny over the husband. There can be no middle ground in which a working woman simply goes about her business; the very fact of putting on a pantsuit and commuting to a white-collar office is a betrayal of the family compact.

    What I found very interesting here is their hostility towards corporations. To the degree that corporations are willing to provide women with health care, to the degree that they're willing to provide women with jobs -- or even careers -- they are held in as much contempt by these wingers as the government. It's a side of Wingnuttia that you don't get to see too often: one that refuses to adhere to the marriage of convenience between the Christian evangelical right and the moneyed right.

    These guys are sufficiently far to the right that they worry that the free market will interfere with their Atwoodian Gilead utopia.

    Nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of non-thought. -- Milan Kundera
