A certian aggrandisement here

The Duchess of Sussex has pledged to take her fight for equal rights to Washington DC, as she condemns the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

The Duchess has joined feminist campaigner Gloria Steinham to publicly criticise the decision as endangering women, warning of a “blueprint for reversing rights”.

Given the number of rather more famous and important Americans already doing that I’m not wholly certain that a B list cable TV actress is all that much of a catch for the campaign.

  1. I’m not wholly certain that a B list cable TV actress is all that much of a catch for the campaign.

    Indeed not, but I’m sure the campaign is a definite catch for her……..

  2. You would like to think that as American citizens, they would understand how their system works and what the SC actually does – and what it shouldn’t do – but it seems they are as thick (or disingenuous) as the media peddling this claptrap.

  3. No, Longrider, not thick. Just liars.

    And counting on the average IQ of anyone paying them any attention being lower than room temperature…

  4. Bloke in North Dorset

    Diogenes,

    Fair points, I was thinking more around the ethics of bending the rules for personal gain or helping someone else break the law or just bend the rules.

  5. Indeed not, but I’m sure the campaign is a definite catch for her

    It’s a hobby horse for a rich and entitled retired “C”-list Canadian TV star to use her Royal hubby and phoney title to get on the next rung of the washed up celeb ladder, like Jessie Ventura and Sonny Bono.

    Does her argument have any merit? Nope, but it might just give her enough publicity to wheedle her name onto some congressional running list somewhere.

    Does she deserve it? Nope. Bitch needs to be brought down a peg or two, but nobody seems to have the balls to do. She’s just a tawdry TV movie remake of Wallace Simpson without the wit.

  6. Yeah but Ventura, Sonny and indeed Arnie did all actually get elected. Can’t see it happening with Megs somehow, although that Alexandra Squash-Court woman managed it, I suppose.

  7. Ms. Alexandra Orange-Cucumber used to be a bargirl in New York who recently discovered she was Jewish (How very convenient giving her declining polling), so if she can do it, surely some “Z”-list sleb married to “The-Onanist-who-used-to-be-a-Prince” and has appeared on Oprah can do it. Just needs to find the right vehicle and baby killing via Moar Democracy! might just be the ticket.

    I’m guessing that Alexandra Occidental-Cubano ate the right sausage / munched the right rugs to get her name on the ticket. At least that’s fairly traditional as Veep Kamala Harris (lubricator or Willie Brown’s sausage) could attest, but probably won’t.

    So what is Me-Gain Markel going to do for her “nod”?
