Bridging the Gap Women’s Summit – Answering The War On Women
If there is anything the Democrat party is good at, it’s building a narrative. And with the press on their side, they have successfully pushed forth some whoppers. A pervading rumor spread by the left, that I am sure both sides tire of hearing, is the GOP “war on women.” How the party who chooses to murder our future women through abortion could accuse the | Read More »
#waronwomen Alleged sexual assault, coverup, of minority Democratic staffers in Kentucky.
Oh, look. A Democratic-controlled legislature stonewalling sexual harassment charges by Democratic female staffers* against a white Democratic state legislator. I’d say shocking, except that it’s not. It’s highly offensive, but it’s not shocking. Two longtime Kentucky statehouse employees have filed ethics complaints against Democratic state Rep. John A. Arnold Jr., alleging a pattern of sexual assault and harassment dating back to early 2010. Cassaundra Cooper | Read More »
Two questions for former President Bill Clinton about Bob Filner. #waronwomen
Question One (H/T: Instapundit): Was former President Bill Clinton aware of Bob Filner’s history of sexual predation when Clinton endorsed Filner in 2012 for Mayor of San Diego? Question Two – because we all know that, in the unlikely event that anybody in the Media ever has the nerve to actually ask that question of Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton will promptly say “No:” Why was | Read More »
The beauty queen view of modern America
Who knew that a beauty pageant could be brimming with so much socio-political insight? The Miss USA pageant on Sunday gave us not one, but two, remarkable observations on the state of the Union. First, here’s Miss Alabama, Mary Margaret McCord, offering her thoughts on the surveillance state: “I think the society that we live in today, it’s sad that if we go to the | Read More »
Why Jim Moran’s son Patrick will get away with domestic abuse.
Consider the story of Jim and Patrick Moran… and let us not make this a Democratic/Republican thing. Instead, let us go foreign: imagine that a report had come out that the son of an Australian* politician had been caught viciously beating his girlfriend in a drunken rage. The incident was witnessed by police, who made an arrest (getting assaulted themselves in the process); the victim | Read More »
Indeed There is a War on Women
Let’s confront an inconvenient truth. There is a war on women being waged in this country – one that cuts to the core of the ethos war that is being directed at our founding values. And that war on women is being prosecuted by none other than Barack Obama’s party of Sandra Fluke. Leftists have always been masters of projection – decrying the deeds of | Read More »
Mark Steyn Reminds us that the War on Children is Real
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that you don’t read Mark Steyn to feel good about the future. Indeed, there are few writers out there who are better at pouring a cold bucket of reality on our expectations for the future–with a nice bit of gallows humor to make it a little easier to stomach. So, it should go without saying that he’s | Read More »
Julia’s Come A Long, Long Way
Barack Obama’s political ad team introduced us to Julia. What a poor, misunderstood and insulted woman. If she exists, she is a pariah. If she is a composite, nobody with pride would admit to being one of the models. Julia appeals to no one of an independent mind for two reasons. She is totally dependent and seemingly isolated. This combination of factors weakens Julia to | Read More »

Hilary Rosen’s specific point was that Ann Romney, not having been in the workforce outside the home, cannot really relate to women in the workforce. I disagree. Here’s why. In my experience, with both a stay at home mom raising me, my wife a stay at home mom, and many of my friends married to stay at home moms, the stay at home mother typically | Read More »
Jay Carney comes into his own by denying Hilary Rosen hers.
For a given value of “his own.” Short version of this Jay Carney clip: Hilary who? Hilary Rosen? The White House has so many people coming through, after all… Somewhere, Robert Gibbs is nodding to himself and thinking, Yes. The chrysalis has fallen away to reveal… well, a prime example of Dermatobia hominis (human bot fly).
Les Miserables II
“Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling,” he said. “And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work….” (HT:CNSnews) OK. So Hillary Rosen inserts foot in mouth up to knee and requires immediate medical evacuation as far away from a live microphone as possible. That’s OK, we get it. She, like Huey “The | Read More »
On Ann Romney and Hilary Rosen and the War on Women
This has been the typical response of Romney supporters on twitter for my role in “L’Affair Rosen” on CNN last night: JoiseyCop: For you to sit by and let Hillary Rosen slander Ann Romney without challenge shows you be the phony piece of dog shit you are ! @EWErickson I’d mentioned I missed the remark, still dwelling on a previous remark along with some IFB | Read More »
Democrats Now Say They Never Said ‘War Against Women’?
If you went to bed oblivious of the news last night, there was a mini-bruhaha over a comment Hilary Rosen, the former head of the RIAA and a DNC Advisor, made to Anderson Cooper on AC360 last night. I was on AC360 with both Hilary and Paul Begala. Hillary said that Ann Romney, a mother of five sons who has had breast cancer and MS, | Read More »
Barack Obama: STILL not paying women as much as men?
Via @mkhammer comes this latest example of Do As I Say, Not As I Line-Item Budget from the Obama administration. Executive summary: the Obama administration is allegedly paying its female staffers roughly 18% less than its male ones. I’m using the term ‘allegedly’ because the original report did not separate out staffers by gender, forcing “some assumptions to be made based on the employee names” | Read More »
