    than their "values" is power. That's why they love their female senators and governors. It's not genuine admiration or respect that they feel -- they are just pleased that these women are a means to Republicans getting more power because they know they need female voters' support. But how many of them just this year have made comments about women should not even be allowed to vote? I can think of at least two.  It's the same reason they are giving Artur Davis a speaking role at the convention  -- "Look, we have a black guy, too, and he used to be one of theirs."

    If they thought it wouldn't hurt them with women, they'd replace all of them with men. Where is their female speaker or majority leader? Where are all their female committee heads or their female RNC leader? But I know you know all this, too, so I'm sorry for going on. I am just so tired of their lies and hipocrisy as they pretend to care about this group or that group while continuing to support and pass policies that undercut all those groups. I don't know why anyone supports Republicans. They are disgusting excuses for human beings.

    •  we are in total agreement (despite some (0+ / 0-)

      superficial disagreements) and I don't mind you "going on" because you're doing a good job expressing the same feelings I have.
