Tee hee!

Phyllis Schlafly as conceptualized by Michèle Bachmann (Image by Nuddie Naked Lady Golf Tees).
Michèle Bachmann (Mad-Eyed Lady of the Lakelands), Via Silly Rabbit at Kos:
"I believe that Phyllis Schlafly is the most consequential female woman in public policy in the last fifty years of the 20th Century," Bachmann declared. "Had there not been a Phyllis Schlafly, I believe that we wouldn't have seen a rise of the pro-family movement. Had there not been a rise of the pro-family movement, I don't believe that there would have been a Ronald Reagan. Without a President Ronald Reagan, I don't think we would have seen the ability to defeat the evil, and yes that's what it was, Soviet empire and to bring a conclusion to the Cold War. Just as Ronald Reagan was consequential, Phyllis Schlafly was extremely consequential because she was a tee to tee up this president that we had."
Of course that's not to say that as a female woman Schlafly was necessarily as consequential as some of the male women.
