He's also driving Romney to the hard right, because, you know, Romney is afraid of crazy people (but will totally be a tough-ass policy negotiator in the United State's behalf in matters with foreign dictators).
Anyway, today Bryan Fischer posted this very strange observation:
Women's suffrage only thing keeping Obama in the game: Obama down 8 with men, up 8 with women. shar.es/74Sn9— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) August 26, 2012
The observation that there's a huge Obama/Romney gender gap is nothing new. But Fischer's choice of words is so very strange. "Women's suffrage?" We're still calling it that? Has Fischer not recovered from his profound disappointment when it was ratified in 1920?
What's the point? That women are keeping Obama in? The implication of course is women's views somehow less valid than men's. Oh no! Obama's getting all sneaky and underhanded, appealing to women voters!
Of course, women are half of the country's population (and conventional wisdom says they're a more dependable GOTV constituency than men). Gosh, what a shame women can vote. Sucks to be Romney, huh?
I suppose once they're done disenfranchising the black and Latinos they can work on Vaginal-Americans next.
Oh, just in case we were confused Fischer followed it up with this:
Ann Coulter: "If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president."— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) August 26, 2012
I'd certainly be inclined to ignore this as the ravings of a lunatic, if Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan were not one of the many, many mainstream Republicans lining up to kiss Bryan Fischer's ring at the Values Voter Summit his organization sponsors next month.
Fischer is both a raving lunatic and a powerful force on the Republican party.
Update: Fischer is still digging on his Twitter timeline, going on and on about how women always vote Democrat.
Of course, he is oblivious to the possibility that they do so because women prefer the actual policy positions the Democrats offer, and that the Republican policies that Bryan "no exceptions for rape!" Fischer regularly dictates to his party are just not popular with women.

@bryanjfischer Man, just think how much better Romney would be doing without emancipation!
Update 3: What it's really all about:
If campaign is over who can make husbands & fathers more irrelevant to women through govt programs, game over, Dems win.— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) August 26, 2012
Aw, let me call you a wah-bulence for your suffering male supremacy.
