Reince, I’m worried for the rebranding, really I am especially when guys like this are campaigning for guys like Gov. Batboy:
“[The War on Women is] a gargantuan lie to get votes. It’s as big a lie as the culture of rape on your campuses. What nonsense. There is a culture of rape on campuses run by the feminist left?
What do you cite to sell me this nonsense? One in 5 women are sexually assaulted on campuses. Do you know what sexual assault means? Did you ever look at what counts? An unwanted kiss is considered sexual assault. I’m stunned it’s only 1 in 5. Four out of five women have not gotten an unwanted kiss? My wife gets unwanted kisses every so often. [Ed. Probably a lot more often than he realizes.]
–Conservative Radio Host Dennis Prager, who believes that racism in America is largely the fault of the black community, so he’s kind of a two-fer, Reince, you know with being anti-woman and anti-black.

Reince responds to a question about a CO personhood amendment with an attack on strip clubs giving money to Charlie Crist in Florida? What? Really?
I’m worried about the rebranding, Reince, really I am!
War on Women, Cont.
When supermodel Chrissy Teigen took to the Twitters and made a point about gun violence in the US compared to gun violence in Canada, it was too much for one Fox News host to bear:
“She should stay on Instagram. Chrissy Teigen is known for, obviously, her lovely bottom, and her food Instagram pictures. She should stick to that.”
–Mean Girls Fox News Host Andrea Tantaros quipped.
But it gets better as she displays some sisterly solidarity:
“This is the problem when models start to talk. They play into that dumb model stereotype. Because it’s too soon for her to weigh in. And also, conflate gun control, and crime in America with a global war against radical Islamic jihadism.”
Skirts. Whatcha gonna do, amiright?
“You know, it’s a shame that the CDC head, Frieden, is apparently the commander of the Democrats’ new war on women nurses.”
Keep f***ing that Chicken.
Um, what about telling women (and men) what your policies are that should be attractive to women?
The late Molly Ivin said that we should never listen to politician’s words, but should look at the record. Let’s investigate!
Defund and shut down Planned Parenthood, which offers a lot more services than abortion, like breast cancer screenings and other preventative healthcare? Whoops!
That the party unanimously voted down a minimum wage increase? That might be related to women. Whoops!
The Violence Against Women Act was filibustered in the Senate? Whoops!
I’m really worried about the Rebranding, Reince:
Really, Reince? Closing down 80% of the remaining abortion clinics in Texas and forcing women to drive for 300 miles is compassion?
Doughy Pantload explains why there is no War on Women:
Women earn 57% of bachelor’s degrees, 63% of master’s degrees and 53% of doctorates. They constitute the majority of the U.S. workforce and the majority of managers. Single women without kids earn 8% more than single men without children in most cities. Women make up almost half of medical school applicants and nearly 80% of veterinary school enrollees.
The recession — a.k.a. the “mancession” — hit men much harder, and women recovered from it much more quickly. When you account for hours worked and job choices, pay equity is pretty much here already. Sure, this is a snapshot, but few serious people think it isn’t a snapshot of a race in which women are surging ahead.
A broad coalition of feminist groups, Democratic Party activists and the journalists who carry water for them refuse to recognize the progress women have made unless it is in the context of how “fragile” these victories are. Going by the endless stream of fundraising emails I get from the Democratic Party, Emily’s List — never mind New York Times editorials — and other usual suspects, we’re always one election away from losing it all.
If Harry Reid isn’t the majority leader next year, it’s back to wearing corsets and churning butter for you.
Um, it seems that Jonah thinks that because women are thriving academically that therefore they cannot be discriminated against in the workplace, and well, men are suffering more. His insistence on rape statistics being rigged is rather appalling, too.
Betcha can’t tell that this ad was designed by a man:
The 60-second spot, “Dating Profile,” was released by the group Americans for Shared Prosperity, which is run by Republican millionaire and California winery owner John Jordan, according to Politico. He wants to fight back against the Democrats’ “war on women” rhetoric.
Smart move, Mr. Jordan, distilling women down to their essence: finding the right man. Yeah, you nailed the skirts hopes and dreams.
Theocrats’ War on Democracy
Not well. The youngs might have a problem with this one, as all polling indicates that youngsters just do not care about the Culture Wars:
House Democrats who initiated a discharge petition to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act were optimistic about its prospects despite obstacles ahead for the legislative maneuver.
Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), who’s gay and chief sponsor of ENDA, held a news conference on Capitol Hill with Democratic colleagues Wednesday to tout the importance of the discharge petition, which he had filed with the House clerk’s office earlier in the day.
Polis described the discharge petition as a means to move forward “in preventing people from being fired for their job just because of who they love or their gender orientation.”
At the time of news conference, Polis said the discharge petition already has more than 75 names, and momentum continues “to pressure Speaker Boehner to simply allow the House to work its will and pass ENDA.” It takes a total of 218 names for a discharge petition to succeed and move a bill to the House floor.
What is not so obvious is that Not. One. Single. Republican. has signed on to this. None. Just like the all the other initiatives that are meant to protect women and minorities, Y’all Qaeda is only interesting in helping straight, white, Xristian men.
We at MPS continue to insist that the War on Women is real, but we want to remind everyone that it is only one front in Y’all Qaeda’s real goal: War on Democracy.
Paycheck Fairness Act Blocked Again By Senate GOP
Shorter Republicans: “Skirts. Amiright, fellas?”
But here’s the intro to the story, incase you want the longer version.
Senate Republicans on Monday blocked for the fourth time a bill that would strengthen federal equal pay laws for women.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would ban employers from retaliating against employees who share salary information with each other, impose harsher penalties for pay discrimination and require employers to be able to show that wage gaps between men and women are based on factors other than gender.
The bill needed 60 votes to overcome a Republican filibuster and advance to a final vote on passage, but it fell short Monday by a vote of 52 to 40. Senate Democrats have brought the bill to the floor four times since 2011, and each time Republicans have rejected it.
But I’m sure Carly “Fire’em All” Fiorina will tell us again why the Democrats are the real sexists.
(As always I need to state that it is the position of MPS that the War on Women is real, and it is but one front in the Theocrats’ overall War on Democracy.)
