The McTernan-led ALP spin machine continues to attack Tony Abbott’s so-called
problem with women
even though this is patently false. Yet when Margie Abbott comes to the defence of her husband, the spin-machine and its ABC acolytes suggest this is wrong and inappropriate.
How strange. There are numerous examples in history – Australian, American, British etc – where a spouse has offered strong support for their (usually) husband. It was certainly ok with the ALP when Hazel Hawke offered strong support for her husband, or Annita to hers.
But now we have an unmarried Prime Minister, the ALP would like us to think it inappropriate for Margie Abbott to appear in the campaign.
Hillary, though, probably has the best line for Margie:
You know, I’m not sitting here like some little woman standing by my man, like Tammy Wynette. I’m sitting here because I love him, and I respect him, and I honor what he’s been through and what we’ve been through together. And you know, if that’s not enough for people, then heck, don’t vote for him.
