What We Learned in 2012: 2013, Here We Come?

As we look back over the crazy political year that was 2012, and look over our shoulders just in that Mayan prediction about the end of the world is true, here are a few things to consider about what we learned this year:

1. The Muppets are liberal and hate conservatives.

2. Libertarians have a conspiracy theory about some adoptions.

3. A college education makes you a snob

4. White guys still have too much power.

5. Even 12-year-olds understand when there’s something wrong with a candidate.

6. Rush Limbaugh finally discovered he can’t call just anyone a slut.

7. Suburban moms are the most powerful political players in presidential elections.

8. Republicans thought if they created a war on moms they would win the White House.

9. Women made some advances in the 2012 election, but there’s much more work to be done.

10.  Fewer Americans will be worrying whether they have to choose medical care over paying the mortgage.

11. When states fight against unions, they are forgetting the women teachers, nurses, and more they need every day.

12. Some people really are trying to spin the elections by preventing certain people from voting – including women.

13. There’s a difference between engaging with voters who happen to be mothers and pandering to them.

14. “Ladylike” took on a new political definition.

15. Late in the election, both major political parties remembered they had forgotten to engage with American moms — pretty much the most powerful voting demographic.

16. Ovaries can talk.

17. Putting women in any binder is never a good idea.

18. Ain’t no such thing as a fiscal cliff.

19. Women and social media will change the face of politics.

20. Time to start thinking about electing a woman president.

Predictions for 2013?  If there is one?  ;)

    I enjoyed reading these! Numbers 5, 6, 9, 13, 17 and 19 are my favorite though. Hmmm, if I had to make a prediction, I’d say that Nancy Pelosi will regain her Speaker of the House seat and a woman will do something so amazing that she will grace the covers of all the political national magazines as person of the year for 2013. Please visit Venus Blogs as they also promote women and the issues that appeal to them: http://venusblogs.com/category/politics/

    “PunditMom” has been included in the Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope that this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

    I discovered that:

    - you can’t run a political party on angry old white guys alone.
    - car elevators are not typical appliances
    - it is a bad idea to piss off 47% of a country
