Minnesota Family Council: "We hate skin!"

Take a look at this picture of Senator Norm Coleman's wife. Does it make you feel a bit funny in your special place? Does it pander to your prurient interests? Or is it just another f$*!&@ picture of a woman in a dress sitting down.

If you are Tom Prichard, head of the Minnesota Family Council, the answer sure isn't the last one. Upon seeing the picture, this is what he said: "It's disappointing. It sends the wrong message to young girls. She's in a position of influence, being married to a public figure. Whether one likes it or not, there's a degree of responsibility that goes with it." I'm unsure what responsibility she has. To not be seen? To show absolutely no skin at all? To wrap herself up in drapery? The only person who knows for sure is Tom Prichard, and I'm not even sure that God wants to explore his sordid mind.

I've seen Prichard around the capitol. He often seems nervous, like he is afraid of revealing something. I'm not going to speculate on what that may be, but anybody who is that puritanical about life has, shall we say, issues.

If you are Tom Prichard, head of the Minnesota Family Council, the answer sure isn't the last one.Well -- just guessin' here - I'm pretty sure the MFC wouldn't put "f$*!&@" in its official answer, near as I can tell.

So, this is pretty much a non-issue, right? It'll die a quick death, down the ol' Memory Hole, a topic at cocktail parties in years to come: "Who was it that had those pictures..."

I'd like to pose two questions:
1. Can the DFL say anything about this, because (a) we frankly don't think there's anything wrong, and (b) it's not nice to take shots at someone's wife?

2. Assuming the answer to 1. is "No," would the same be true if this had been a DFL candidate's wife? I honestly don't know.

No, she doesn't look like just another woman in a dress, in that still photograph she looks like a bimbo.

I try not to judge somebody on the basis of a single still photograph and I don't have much of anything good to say about MFC but no, she doesn't look like just another woman in a dress.

I think that Norm Colman's wife looks like a delightful woman with a great figure. Whoever took that picture was trying to look up her dress.

Anyway, give me a break! I think it is refreshing to see a woman enjoying herself instead of sitting there covered to her neck and looking like she is eating prunes. Instead she looks like a delightful woman whom I would love to talk to and get to know. Pritchard may be a little prudish, and if he is from a very conservative church, then I am not surprised. When my mom was growing up her church thought people who wore lipstick were going to hell. Strangly enough, when she goes to visit there, she doesn't wear lipstick, so she won't offend them. But that is rediculous to think that if you are wearing lipstick you won't go to heaven, since God is love, and He isn't into rules as much as forgiveness, grace, and providing a redemption for his lost children.

Lets look at the heart of this woman instead of at the packaging. what is going on in her heart, and how does she show it by her words, actions, and relationships with others. And it is important to watch your mouth too. People tend to discount what you say when it is full of expletives. It makes you sound like an uneducated bumpkin.
