Absurd: Queen Latifah Wants Women’s “Confidence” Day (?!); Wants to Run for Senate (??!!)

By Debbie Schlussel
They dominate college admissions. They dominate the graduation numbers. And they dominate business and law schools and their graduates, too.
So do women, who now greatly outnumber men, in all of these areas need more “confidence”? That’s what actress, hip-hopper, and former drug dealer Queen Latifah (real name: Dana Owens) claims. She is endorsing yet another stupid, meaning less national day that costs time and money to pass it through Congress: National Women’s Confidence Day. Latifah was in Washington, this week, visiting the House of Representatives to endorse this–yet another waste of Congressional resources like National Embalming Day.
Apparently it’s part of her political “toe in the water” in preparation for her announced future run for the U.S. Senate. Excuse us while we stop laughing. (We’re still laughing about “The Nanny’s” Fran Drescher’s announced plans to run for the same.) Besides, she’d have to change her name from “Queen” Latifah to “Senator” Latifah. Isn’t that a demotion?
“Women need more confidence to reach their goals,” she claims. Really? With her absurd announcement of plans to run for office, it seems maybe some women have too much confidence.

Senator Latifah?: Heaven Help Us

With the statistics the way they are, it’s clear that if there needs to be a “National Confidence Day” for anyone, it’s men and maybe Infidels (a/k/a non-Muslims).
But don’t look for that to happen. Or for stupid celebs to make silly pronouncements about it. And quit announcing plans to run for office.

Yeah,well since I attended concerts by Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan,I’d strongly recommend she take singing lessons.

And let’s not forget her .24 BAC DUI Arrest 2 years ago. Yeah, we need a National Confidence Day to remind us all how confident we all are that infamous twits like Dana Owens are confident that they’re needed as public servants.
Hip-Hop is a celebration of stupidity, y’all!

Aww, c’mon y’all. She is the PERFECT candidate; Female, Black, and homosexual. The triangulation is complete.

I wouldn’t mind the nanny in the senate. she’s pretty, she probably likes israel and she’s into men. queen latifah strikes out on those three pitches.

Oh Christ! Now I’ve heard everything. Is she going to be renamed “King Latifah”? Gimme a break!

BTW, I’d vote for the Nanny any day. She’s priceless. Wolllfff!

Where are the programs for White Males now that the woman have taken over. It strikes me as ridiculous that woman can continue to say the work place is not a level playing field and they are a member of a minority group when they are 55% of the population.
I guess we still have to put up that fact they feel they have a god given right to discriminate against men in College Admissions and Jobs.I did not get into medical school even though my GPA and
qualification were far higher than my fellow female applicants that got accepted.
This is what passes for progress today. Queen Latifah epitomizes the dumbing down of America and the fact that some will vote for a Ho and Dope Dealer with a straight face.
What a country!

Don’t worry ScottyDog. There are still far more men in management and executive positions than women despite women making up more of the population.

Good thing for her she’s black. If she’d been rolled in flour you wouldn’t be able to tell which was her and which was The Rotunda!

Let her run for presidency and she can defeat the Islamists. Ooppsss.. she has already taken Shada, hasn’t she?

America is paying a heavy price for too much feminism. The President/Commander-in-Chief is more worried about propping up Condi and Karen Hughes, than to stand up to Islamists / Illegal Immigrants. Any surprise US is offering a nuclear package-deal to Iran, while the thugs are threatening the world, citisenship to criminals, while the criminals threaten the fabric of America?
