Maggie Gallagher: The '80s glam years
In 2008, we all saw a forty-something Maggie Gallagher face off with Gloria Allred on Dr. Phil. But we just uncovered a delicious nugget from 20 years earlier, that we're sure both Mags and Gloria would love to keep buried in the annals of time (we said "annals," Maggie, so don't freak out!).
Behold: 1980's most infamous schlocky right-wing trash talker, Morton Downey Jr., facing off with Allred, with a quick anti-feminist cameo from everyone's favorite NOMmer:
(**Darn it, it seems the video has been pulled. I'll try to find another copy).

So fun. Though what we really want to see is teen years Maggie, standing outside Studio 54 condemning the Village People's attempts to destroy the sanctity of YMCAs. Or maybe toddler Maggie, talking into a play TV camera about the need for society to protect her innocence from the evil gay agenda. If those clips exist, you can bet we will find them!
So, ugh....what was ol' Mags there, anyway? (Shudders at the thought!) What was her position? What was she spewing?

Trying to get the full tape. All I know is that she was booksd at the anti-femeinist counterpart to Gloria Allred.

Women as anti-Fems?! That just proves what a patriarchal institution is, and how is brainwashes women into believing that must be subservient to their husbands. Hmmm...I wonder if one could propose a hypothesis as to how this might have colored her perceptions and her recent "activity"? BTW, I hope you got my e-mail alright? Def. something worth meditating upon, I should think.

Damn typos, etc... I was, ugh, speaking about Christianity, above.

She's just DELIGHTFUL, isn't she?

Wow! I can almost see, now, how she ended up knocked-up, and having an out-of-wedlock (bastard) child! I mean, what straight guy wouldn't hit that (or at least think about it). But, after they sobered up, they might decide to look for something else to hitch their penis to more permanently.

Maggie - Last Night she looked like a "10" but the next morning she looked like a "2". That's how she came about to have a child.

Wasn't that when she was getting knocked up by some dude she wasn't married to?
