Dear Mike Huckabee, You are a Douchelord
With all due respect, I don’t care about your opinion of my being a single mother. As for my calling you a douchelord, it is said with all the respect you deserve, which in my opinion is none. You have offended a group of women you know nothing about.
I am a single mother. I am not an “actress or a millionaire”. I have never had a “nanny or a baby nurse”. I am not “poor or under-educated”. I have a job and do not “collect financial assistance from the government”, so do not generalize all single mothers as the same.
I put my son through 10 years of a very expensive private school education entirely on my own. My son is smart, funny, charming and impacting the world in a positive way. He cares about people and the planet. He is making a difference and is being raised by a single mother.
Barack Obama the 44th President, Andrew Jackson, the 7th President, Herbert Hoover, the 31st President, Bill Clinton, the 42nd President, and Gerald Ford, the 38th President, were all raised by single moms. They became President, and you never will.
Single mothers raised Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, and Justice Clarence Thomas. I could go on but since you probably don’t know who these people are, it’s a waste of my time. You should be ashamed of yourself for your ignorant, and politically biased words.
You are offensive, and for the record, Natalie Portman is not raising her child alone. Bristol Palin on the other hand, is working very hard to ensure that she is a single mother. Where are your comments about Ms. Palin and her unwed teenage pregnancy?
You decided to say something controversial in a feeble attempt to get publicity for a book you are trying to sell. I won’t mention your book by name but if someone reading here wants to read your book, they can Google “judgmental douchelords” and I’m sure the title will pop up.
I know there are a lot of single moms who are struggling. I also know there are a lot of women who are married, educated and struggling. People are struggling because your pal Bush killed our country for 8 years and we are all just hoping to hang in until it can be fixed.
Do not presume to know anything about me, my life, my child, or my struggles. I am educated, successful, a taxpayer of the United States of America and a single mother. You know nothing about me so keep your opinions about me, Natalie Portman, and all single mothers to yourself.
I feel sorry for you Mr. Huckabee as you Sir, are a douchlord. Stick to talking about things you know, which shouldn’t be hard as I’m sure the list of topics is rather small. I am a single mother Mr. Huckabee. Know that you will never get my vote, and I will always keep the faith.
