“It’s time for a real, snarktastic, humor-filled
look at what makes conservatism right. We conservatives have truth and
rationality and logic on our side. We just need to remind ourselves why we are
right, and we need that reminder delivered in a way that’s not a lecture, not a
history lesson, and not a complicated political diatribe.”
If you think all conservatives are old white dudes,
Meet the Chicks on the Right (if you haven’t
already). Everyone loves to tell them they’re wrong—everyone.
Liberals say they’re wrong because, well, they’re conservative. Conservatives
tell them they’re wrong because they are not conservative enough, or because
they’re too conservative, or because they’re the wrong kind of conservative.
With all the blame flying around, it’s easy to lose sight of one important
thing: they think like you. And they are right.
It’s right to revere the Constitution. It’s right to
value personal responsibility, economic liberty, and free enterprise. It’s
right to think that political correctness is crap and to call out
the mainstream media for bias. And it’s right to laugh at the so-called War on
Women and to stand up for the unborn.
As they do every day on their blog and radio show,
Miriam Weaver and Amy Jo Clark offer a definitive response to critics on the Right
and the Left and a cheerfully snarky pep talk for like-minded conservatives. On one hand, they are tired of the media’s portrayal of conservatives as
repressed sticks-in-the-mud; on the other hand, they are sick of GOP leaders
who play right into that stereotype.
With humor and insight, Mock and Daisy, as the
Chicks are known on their blog, explain why
- capitalism is a good thing—success and the money
that comes with it are nothing to be ashamed of;
- First Amendment protections extend to all Americans,
not just those with whom we agree;
- Americans have a constitutional right to things that
- skin color is irrelevant;
- it makes sense to be pro-life and pro-Plan B.
The Chicks offer suggestions for a conservative
makeover that will realign the GOP with the regular folk, who are frustrated
with uptight and clueless politicians. But they also show why conservatism
makes sense for everyone—especially those who love their country, their
families, God, rock and roll, and a well-made cocktail (not necessarily in that
order). Download and start listening now!
