I’m not sure what’s more surprising – that this debate was on Hardball or that there’s a Republican congresswoman in Washington state.
But as a postscript, I’m really tired of this whole “war on women” meme. First, I’ve lived in places where being a woman really is an awful proposition (think Afghanistan). Whining about no free birth control from the Catholic Church doesn’t cut it. Second, I’m surprised the Dems are still flogging that dead horse – it’s pretty clear this is a religious liberty versus “free stuff” issue. Finally, haven’t we all figured out by now that “wars on” just don’t work? War on drugs? A bust (no pun intended.) War on poverty. Phbbtt! War on terrorism… Iffy.
So even if Republicans wanted to have a war on women, it would pretty much be doomed to failure by the title alone. As a woman, I’m not worried.
