  1. And throw in contemporary philosopher Rand Paul at no. 10!

  2. You left out Phyllis Schafley! So you might want to add to your list:

    LEARN why wives should be subservient to their husbands cuz that’s what god wants.

    I just figured out the Rand Paul/Ayn Rand connection today. I am simply da duh!!

  3. Ms. Holland,

    ” LEARN why wives should be subservient to their husbands cuz that’s what god wants ”

    If God had wanted that, wives would have come with mute buttons or at least a volume control on the nagging feature .

    Why do husbands die before wives? They want to .

  4. What I find saddest about this is that even though it is posted as satire, it comes very close to describing what a vast swath of the RightWing faction in this country believes and would want to have public school students taught.
