stand by your man (hillary clinton as conservative icon?!!?)

WHY HAS NO ONE STATED THE OBVIOUS? During the long, arduous, and ultimately pointless episode known as the “Monica Lewinsky Affair”—which was primarily all of 1998 and we are still hearing about it—Hillary Rodham Clinton stood by her man through thick and thin (and rarely was it then).

Why weren’t Republican women dazzled by this woman’s commitment to her man and her relationship?

She even had the courage to put a name to that which the DLM (damn liberal media) never had the balls to do when she stated that there was a “vast rightwing conspiracy” against her husband.

Laughed at for liberal paranoia at the time, subsequent revelations from former-Republican insiders (notably David Brock of Media Matters) have proven her aim accurate. Of course, the DLM still ignores the issue . . .

I know this is years too late—and I didn’t have a blog then—but I have been wondering for years now, “Why weren’t Republican women dazzled by this woman’s commitment to her man and her relationship?”

Another question that has been rattling about in my head for decades before Monica is along the same lines: “Why weren’t Republican women dazzled by Yoko Ono’s commitment to her man and her relationship?”

Grommet only knows the DLM makes a BIG deal out every tortured, heroic wife of each philandering Republican politician when he gets caught! But when a Democrat’s wife stands tall and true, she is either ignored or pilloried by the same media.

So, to Mrs. William Clinton and Mrs. John Lennon, I dedicate this post. Hopefully, the travails were worth the effort . . .


Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman,
giving all your love to just one man.
You’ll have bad times and he’ll have good times,
doing things that you don’t understand.

But if you love him, you’ll forgive him,
even though he’s hard to understand.
And if you love him, be proud of him,
’cause, after all, he’s just a man.

Stand by your man—give him two arms to cling to
and something warm to come to 
when nights are cold and lonely.

Stand by your man, and show the world you love him
keep giving all the love you can.
Stand by your man

Stand by your man, and tell the world you love him
keep giving all the love you can.
Stand by your man.

Stand By Your Man was written by Wynette with producer Billy Sherrill, and released as a single in September 1968. It reached #1 on both the Billboard and Cash Box country charts in late 1968 for several weeks. It also crossed over to the pop charts, peaking at #19 on Billboard’s Hot 100 but only reaching #23 on the Cash Box Top 100.

Stand By Your Man is one of the most recorded songs in the history of country & western music, virtually a staple for any aspiring female country singer. Country Music Television ranked it at #1 on their list of the Top 100 Country Music Songs.

  1. What made you get rid of the chess set heading? Just wondering.

  2. AMI I am experimenting with the look of the theme to see what is the most effective for my content and what my readers prefer. I like all of the open space of the chessboard one (that’s WordPress’s default theme called Twenty-Eleven and I can eliminate the picture header) but like the dramatic impact the red-and-black look has. Wudda you think? NEAL
