“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.

The GOP’s Winning Message For Wimmins

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!

Some White Whine With Your Stupid?

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?

The War on Women: The Jonah Goldberg Edition

Jonah Doughy Pantload surreal

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.

So Reince, how’s that rebranding comin’ along?

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.

How’s That Rebranding Working, Reince?

Theocrats’ War on Democracy

GOP Video Game

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.

How’s That Rebranding Goin’, Reince?

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.)

The War on Women, Cont.

(As regular readers know, our position at MPS is that there is a War on Women and it is waged by the Theocrats as one front on their War on Democracy.)

So Greater Wingnuttia thinks that they have found the secret message to overcome their loss of the female vote following such disasters as the Legitimate Rape and the much ballyhooed Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Ruling, as well as the failure of single Republican in both houses to vote for the Minimum Wage Hike, or the Equal Pay legislation, and well, you know, for failing to reconfirm the Violence Against Women Act. No one member of Y’all Qaeda voted for any of these things. Not one.

So what is the secret strategy: to make The Pill an over-the-counter drug.

But here’s the catch: it then becomes your cost to buy your Rush Limbaugh Slut Pills, not the insurance company. Oh, and other birth control methods? IUDs, etc., which cost a lot more, will still cost a lot more and you will still have to petition your insurance company for them.

So once again, Wingnuttia: Thanks Boys, We Love It When You Do This. — The Dems

How’s That Rebranding Workin’ Out, Reince?

(TPM) Why bother showing her head, just a skirt. Amiright, boys?

Keep it up, boys. We love it when you do this. — The Dems
