As has been observed by others before me, there is a strange brew of the sexual and the political in conservatives’ admiration for the hyper-femininity and sustained outrage of Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, and the leggy Fox anchors. Now it culminates in a new film from the Citizens United crew (makers of Hillary: The Movie and America At Risk). This one is called Fire From The Heartland, and it argues that everything that makes women strong is “their femininity and their morality,” as Coulter puts it in her narration. You don’t want to miss the trailer.
