It can't be easy being a handsome state senator's wife.
You've seen what happens to those who reach even higher office and you count the number of wives some of them have had.
The mathematical odds don't look so good.
So please offer an ululation of support for Heather McGill, wife of Alabama state Sen. Shadrack McGill, who has decided to get her retaliation in first.
Tired of predatory women's carnal desires directed at her husband, she has taken to Facebook to tell them that she's ready to shame them into oblivion.
As if shame will somehow turn predatory women away.
She wrote: "I am very blessed to be the wife of a God fearing, hard working, ministry minded, loving father and husband and it is not just my right but my duty to lovingly serve him by protecting him! I have been silent for long enough!! NO MORE!"
I know I speak for many men who just wish there were righteous women to protect us from other women who are so much less righteous.
Heather McGill continued: "Multiple times since being in office he has gotten emails from women (who may not even be real) inviting him to explore, also sending pictures of themselves. NO MORE!!! It is a shame that people are so heartless that they would try to split up families. We have children that look at our face books from time to time! Shame on you!"
I am truly not sure that shaming is the right way to go here, but perhaps in these parts of Alabama there is nothing worse.
There again, people have tried to shame Alabama's Nick Saban, and that doesn't seem to have worked.
Still, it seems to be that women -- who may or may not be strippers -- have turned up at the McGills' door with the idea that they might have sex with a pro-life Christian leader who has 6 children with his wife. And still lives with her.
Some would call that freakish ambition, beyond the imagination of even a politician.
Certain women even allegedly send pictures of themselves, clad in little more than the barest of threads, to his Facebook page and e-mail address.
What hussyish forwardness. They must be from New York.
More Technically Incorrect
"Being that we have daughters, I guess, a righteous anger rose up in me over that," Heather McGill told ABC News.
If they only had sons, would her anger have been less righteous? Would she have had more of a "boys will be boys and strippers will be strippers" attitude?
It is hard to know, but McGill insists she is protecting her family by warning would-be husband-stealers and carnal opportunists.
Please understand that Mrs. McGill is not merely threatening to shame these women.
"I will publicly share your name, before we unfriend you," she wrote.
She is a wise woman. There is no more painful feeling than that of being unfriended by the wife of the man you're trying to sleep with. Or so I am told.
Who would not love to be loved by a woman who is prepared to go on Facebook to fight for her man? Who would not kiss her every toe before going to sleep, in sheer wonder that she loves one quite this much?
However, some posters to Facebook have offered her words of warning of how flimsy men can be.
MaryAnne Cole wrote: "God bless you Heather, I had to do a similar thing for my Preacher husband some years ago but our marriage was finally broken up due to slut in the church. I will pray for both of you."
Yes, even preachers succumb to the wily ways of the wicked and wanton. Sometimes, shaming merely spurs the predators on.
