Jon Stewart, on Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and her
strangely not conservativecrusade for paid maternity leave
Anti-“government handouts” until they apply to you, Fox News style. From Jezebel’s article Megyn Kelly Bravely Stands up for Megyn Kelly’s Rights:
While Kelly’s pro-maternity leave stance might seem encouraging, and a prominent woman conservative woman advocating any sort of social program refreshing, it’s not brave or envelope pushing to advocate policies that would be immensely beneficial to yourself. As Jon Stewart pointed out, Kelly isn’t so progressive when it comes to other social programs that would immensely help other populations, as that would be “government intrusion.” Megyn Kelly is about as Girl Power as Sarah Palin or Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
I remember when this happened. And it’s representative of the “do as I say, not as I do” mentality that a lot of conservatives (particularly fiscal conservatives) hang on to. See also: Rick Santorum’s wife’s abortion,* Ayn Rand collecting social security and Medicare, and Newt Gingrich suddenly being the authority on marriage and family values.
*And in case you’ve never read it, the timeless “The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion.”
