Would you be surprised to learn that Mike Huckabee’s weird, disturbing statement that women use birth control because they “can’t control their libido” was wildly popular among the right wing base? No?
The latest survey from Democratic PPP released Wednesday showed the former Arkansas governor surging among Republican voters nationwide in the wake of his head-scratching comment about the female libido.
According to the poll, 16 percent of GOP primary voters said they would prefer to see Huckabee as the party’s presidential nominee in 2016, making him the top Republican in the field. Only a month ago, PPP showed Huckabee polling at 11 percent and trailing both New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) among GOP voters.
You probably thought Mike Huckabee’s attempt to mansplain birth control to women was pretty ham-handed Neanderthal stuff, but then along comes the ineffable Allen West to show you how misogyny’s really done: West: ‘The Left Tries to Win the Women’s Vote by Talking From the Waist Down’.
Asserting that Democrats want the government to be “the sugar daddy” and replace men, West said Democrats have been “caught guilty as always” and are responding by attacking Huckabee. He then went on to claim that the Left remains utterly silent when women like Malala Yousafzai are abused and attacked by the Taliban before declaring that “I’m going to be very blunt: the Left tries to win the women’s vote by talking from the waist down.”
The recent Republican National Committee meeting got all the conservative politicians fired up about proving they’re not conducting a war on women’s rights, so they promptly went out to the media and shot themselves in the foot, over and over, proving beyond all doubt that they’re still living in the Stone Age.
The latest Republican to beclown himself: Rand Paul, who went on Meet the Press today and announced that he thinks a good way to attack Hillary Clinton would be to bring up her husband’s infidelity from 20 years ago.
The Democrats, one of their big issues they have concocted says the Republicans are committing a war on women. One of the workplace laws and rules that I think are good is that bosses shouldn’t prey on young interns in their office. And I think really the media seems to be — have given President Clinton a pass on this.
He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that. And that is predatory behavior, and it should, it should be something, we shouldn’t want to associate with people who would take advantage of a young girl in his office. This isn’t having an affair. I mean, this isn’t me saying, “Oh, he’s had an affair, we shouldn’t talk to him.” Someone who takes advantage of a young girl in their office, I mean, really, and then they have the gall to stand up and say Republicans are having a war on women? So yes, I think it’s a factor.
Unbelievable tone-deafness. They just cannot help themselves.
Once upon a time, Republican philanderer Newt Gingrich seemed like one of the saner members of the GOP on the subject of climate change, but those days are long gone. Like the rest of his party, Gingrich has now regressed into pure caveman behavior, with one of the stupidest statements yet about why we don’t need to worry at all about the vast amounts of greenhouse gas we’re pumping into the atmosphere: Gingrich: ‘Life Was Fine’ During Warmer ‘Age of the Dinosaurs’.
Newt Gingrich, a self-proclaimed “amateur paleontologist,” said Monday that the Earth’s rising temperature is not a major issue.
“The age of the dinosaurs was dramatically warmer than this is right now and it didn’t cook the planet,” he said on CNN’s “Crossfire,” as recorded by the Huffington Post. “In fact, life was fine.”
Gingrich said that people have no right to determine Earth’s correct temperature.
“Assume for a minute that we have the capacity to actually decide the planet’s temperature,” he said. “What kind of hubris does it take to say, I know exactly what this planet’s temperature ought to be and I’m going to manage it to that effect?”
Hey, if it was good enough for the dinosaurs…
