When Republicans launched this whole War on Women thing, they didn't expect them to shoot back
-Headline of the Day-
"Going With What They’ve Got."
President Barack Obama is waging a War on Women. It's true! Just ask any random conservative and they'll tell you. See, it works like this; Obama disagrees with conservatives, some conservatives are women (a portion that's dwindling rapidly by the day), therefore Obama's waging War on Women! There's some BS math and spin involved too, but that's pretty much the gist of it.
If this all strikes you as incredibly lame, welcome to the club. This isn't any lasting message, it's a life preserver they can grab onto until they come up with something less stupid.
"Polls are indeed showing a major expansion of the gender gap. Conservative efforts to pretend the nationwide GOP drive against reproductive rights, women’s health care options, and equal pay laws isn’t really happening have largely failed," writes Ed Kilgore. "Meanwhile, the most recent monthly jobs report, while disappointing to Democrats, isn’t an easy target, either ('Obama not creating new jobs as fast as Gallup as economists predicted the day before' won’t fit on anybody’s bumper sticker. If nothing else, the 'war on women' jive is some chum they can throw into the political waters until Republicans figure out what they really want to say and do. Maybe enough right-wing and MSM news outlets will repeat the distorted numbers that they will stick somewhere in the swing-voter subconscience. But above all, Romney and Republicans are going with what they’ve got, and that ain’t much at the moment."
In other words, Republicans are screwed right now and they got nuthin'. So out comes the old Pee-Wee Herman defense; "I know you are, but what am I?" (Political Animal)

Pretty much a gimme. Write your own punchline. (KCBD)
