Single Women 4 Obama

Interestingly, Neil Boortz singles-out a key demographic in Obama's recent victory -- and it's behavior-dependent:

WHERE ARE ALL YOU SINGLE WOMEN?

All you single women out there, it seems as though your screams were heard loud and clear: "I want my mommy!" You voted in record numbers to put Democrats in the White House and Congress. Unmarried woman supported Barack Obama by a 70% to 29% margin. And this should really tell you something ... there was a 44-point difference between the voting behavior of married versus unmarried women. Married woman already had their security ... single women were looking for it. In fact, based on the Edison/Mitofsky National Election Pool published by CNN, if it weren't for your overwhelming support of the Chosen One, John McCain would have won the women vote and the White House.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say there are two factors at play. Unmarried women didn't like Sarah Palin – maybe they were intimidated by her ability to be a woman, a mother of 5, a governor, and be able to handle a shot gun. And unmarried women are eager to suckle the government teat. They feel insecure. They don't have a husband to provide ... so the government becomes their husband. Not a bad deal, I guess. The government provides you with the safety net you would normally get from a good marriage, and you're free to mess around pretty much as much as you want! They are just begging to be the beneficiaries of government and all the mediocrity it has to offer.




Well -- I guess these ladies (can I still use that term without seeming sexist?) will now get the government that they deserve. Unfortunately, so will the rest of us.
