Now Mrs. Feldman is complaining that the incident has ruined her life; she lost her job as an administrator at an assisted living facility, and she has become the most famous cougar/cheating wife in Iowa. Interestingly, Mrs. Feldman seems to think that she bears no responsibility for her skanky behavior at the Iowa vs. Minnesota game. In fact, she's placed the blame on everyone but herself. First, she blamed her intoxication on the people who she tailgated with:
Feldman, who describes herself as a light drinker, drank wine at the home of family friends before the football game.
She said she doesn’t remember how much she drank, but the party’s hosts refilled her glass each time it was low “so I’m sure I drank a lot.”
Then she hinted that her husband was at fault because he permitted her go to the game in her inebriated condition:
Feldman said her husband later told her he’d tried to talk her out of the game because she was intoxicated.
“He said I didn’t realize it was that bad,” she said. Feldman said her husband accompanied her to the game, but their friends stayed home.
Finally, she accused the guy who she hooked up with in the men's room stall of "taking advantage of her." One sentence later, however, she insisted that her adulterous bathroom sex shouldn't be held against her anyway, due to her drunken state at the time of the incident:
"I was taken advantage of in my state of mind,” she said. “This is not me. We’re a very good family. This shouldn’t happen.”
Notice that Mrs. Feldman hasn't apologized for her incident. Nor has she publicly asked for forgiveness from her family or from the community. She has, however, absolved herself of any guilt whatsoever. And she's put the blame squarely on the shoulders of three separate parties: the tailgaters, her husband, and the stranger in the men's room.
Also notice that, despite all her finger pointing and playing of the blame game, Mrs. Feldman has informed the public -- albeit indirectly -- that her indiscretion shouldn't actually be held against her, as she was drunk at the time (guys who are veterans of the modern dating scene may recognize the oft used "I was drunk, so it doesn't count" argument -- no word, however, as to why she continues to hold the guy with whom she hooked up responsible for "taking advantage" of her if it doesn't count anyway). What's more, she reminded everyone that she's a good person who comes from a good family, and that she doesn't do the kinds of things that she did.
Finally, Drive and Dish would be remiss if we didn't point out that her beta male, Hawkeye fan husband has been "supportive" of her. In a more just world, he'd tell her to get lost, and to go support herself.
Classical Values ponders whether Lois Feldman should be able to claim that she was raped.
