    Is that they want to talk about it.  But they just want to talk about it on their terms.  

    Unfortunately, so far the press, and the Democrats are letting them.  IMHO, they should be forcing them to have a full conversation, one where they have to explain their stand on things like deliberate rape of entire female populations as a strategy to destroy the enemy, etc.

    So far, they've just been allowed to send dog whistles to their fanatical supporters, look a bit foolish to the non-kool-aid drinkers, and the press moves on without drilling down on the topic.  It's an ugly one, and if the republicans want to keep talking about how they are determined to assert their control and subjugation of women, they need to talk about how such absolute control over other human beings--and their absolutist support of them--can be, has been, and is, when carried to the extreme, used to destroy entire populations and nations.
