Congratulations to our own Robert Stacy McCain for making RightWing News 3rd Annual list of the 50 Best Political Quotes for 2011 as compiled by John Hawkins. Stacy McCain can be found at #44 on the list with this quote which was in response to Amanda Marcotte’s contempt for Thomas Ball, a 58-year old father of three who committed suicide on the steps of a courthouse in Keene, New Hampshire this past June, following years of divorce and custody battles:
I have no use for “men’s rights,” any more than I have any use for “women’s rights,” but let us ask: Who was it that decided it was a good idea to politicize love, sex and marriage? Who spent the past four decades proclaiming that “the personal is political,” so that every office flirtation and every petty domestic quarrel is a federal civil rights violation?
The damned feminists, that’s who.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Rachel Alexander, the co-founder and longtime editor of Intellectual Conservative (where I began contributing articles in 2003) and an occasional contributor to TAS, also made the list at #41.
So who’s Number One? The Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama bin Laden.
