I get that the GOP has a 'woman problem' and are really trying hard to respin the Democrats 'war on women' meme which was quite successful in 2012. But now I'm beginning to see that rather than having a 'woman problem' the GOP has a 'dumb male' problem.....except that for some of the faux politician type 'dumb males' like Mike Huckabee, pretending to be a dumb male and directly appealing to the idiocies of other dumb males enhances the donations to one's personal PAC. It's kind of amazing how many GOP faux politicians are making a good living off personal PAC's. Not so dumb after all.
Huckabee Doubles Down On Women Can't Control Libidos CommentTalking Points Memo - Livewire - 1/24/2014
Not only is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) not apologizing for saying Democrats think women can't control their reproductive system without the help of the government, he's fundraising off those comments.
"I am apparently the worst conservative ever or at least the most annoying one according to the left wingers in Washington today," Huckabee wrote in his regular MikeHuckabee.com email to supporters Thursday night. "My remarks to the RNC today were immediately jumped on and blown sky high by hand-wringing, card carrying liberals from coast to coast, some of them in the media." (Not just liberals Mike. A lot of women weren't too happy with you.)
The email came hours after the former Arkansas governor, during a speech at the Republican National Committee's winter meeting, said Democrats "insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government." (Mike, you just insulted the intelligence and moral integrity of all women by insisting we are blindly led around by liberals and cannot control our sex drive. Personally, I would say it is conservative men who are blindly led around by histrionics of white male conservative mouth pieces and whose inability to control their own libido must be blamed on women. Just sayin')
In the email Huckabee also asks for donations to his political action committee so his critics can look at the committee's fundraising and "say see we told you so."
"Guess what liberals? If you can't stand to look at yourself in the mirror, then get ready for more of this talk, because conservatives are going to continue to fight back against your destructive policies towards women and families," Huckabee continued in the email. (Maybe Mike spends too much time looking at himself in the mirror.
I don't know about anyone else, but I for one just can't wait for more GOP talking points which purport to save us from the destructive policies of the Dems towards women and families. Especially when the GOP defense is all about demeaning the intellectual and moral integrity of women. I guess I just don't have the intellectual capacity to see how this male 'rational logic' works. Maybe it's a certain type of male, one who is neither rational or logical, for this to make sense. I'm sure Mike will continue to enlighten me.
