I believe the tea party has a name for people like her: RINO.

From the article:

“It seems like we’ve been thrown back decades into debates most everyday people think were settled years ago.

In other words, debates and ideas that LOST. That's the GOP's base problem, they can't accept the loss and because many Republicans are from the South, they are comfortable with the "lost cause" idea and that their ideology will 'rise again" like they "south will rise again" one day.

That's the crux of the matter.

re: #2 Destro

I see a strong patriarchal push from the men of the Religious Right, regardless of the region of the country.

re: #3 prairiefire

I see a strong patriarchal push from the men of the Religious Right, regardless of the region of the country.

I am trying to figure out why the GOP is still fighting fights over social issues that were hot news in the late 60s and early 70s. I mean to the GOP right wing base "All In the Family" and Archie Bunker's tirades are as true then as they are now. The are stuck in a time warp, where "women's rights" and "bra burnings" were the talk of the news. They see black politicians or celebrities and they think "Black Panther militant radicals" with afros who go around giving the black power salute.

It is like the GOP base never got out of a 70s Normal Lear social satire sitcom purgatory.

Parker doesn't seem to object to the position Akin took, just to his poor communication skills.

This is not to suggest that the only thing contributing to the expanding gender gap is the GOP’s position on reproductive issues. Not for one instant do I equate the pro-life position with being anti-female. Heaven forbid we should live in a world where no one struggles with the termination of a pregnancy. This is not a ridiculous conversation. It is, however, an often poorly executed one.

Style matters. Empathy counts. And many women—even those sympathetic to these issues—feel that Republican men aren’t listening to them, or are off on some crusade that has nothing to do with them.

[...]

It is noteworthy that so many Republican men are focused on women’s reproduction and issues of the hearth, while veteran Republican women leaders are riveted on the economy and jobs.

[...]

Better not to talk about it at all, if you can't find some empathy-filled way to communicate the fact that you think women should be forced to carry their rapists' babies to term. Wake up, Kathleen. The pro-life position IS an anti-woman position. How can it not be?

Parker writes one of these columns every six months or so, only to faithfully trumpet her party's message at crunch time.

Why there is nothing wrong with the GOP. Just as planned.

Oh. She noticed.

Well it's a start.
