    This whole open war on women thing just doesn't seem like a political winner to me. Their sycophants are already drooling on the carpet and don't really need any more incentive to get out and vote, so why do stuff like this?

    There are only so many old white straight males in this country and most of them are already going to vote for the GOP? Are they suffering from wedge issue fatigue and they needed a new more high profile target for their divisiveness?

    At least in the past they would do crap like this to try and drive their base to the polls to win elections, now it seems that they are just doing this just because they can, electoral consequences be damned.

    The only difference between (Mitt) Romney and George W. Bush is that Romney hasn't destroyed the American economy, yet - MoT
