Wow. I'm starting to think that Republican and conservative women in this country are all sharing the same collective brain cell.
Yesterday I wrote about the Florida Federation of Republican Women who had launched an effort to persuade other women that Republicans and conservatives never, never, NEVER engaged in the War On Women. No sir, that whole War On Women thing? Pure myth! Not happening.
Apparently they are only addressing the women in this country who aren't paying attention. All those policies like "just say no to contraception," anti-abortion legislation, threats to defund Planned Parenthood which provides preventative health care, threats to repeal ObamaCare, or the Affordable Care Act, no protections in cases of domestic violence, no fair and equal pay, and dozens of others? Myth! A pure figment of your imagination sillies!
Well, as the Florida group was putting out their pathetic attempt to hide their attack on the ladies, they were doing the same thing on a national level over at Mitt Romney's little corner of cyberspace propaganda. They're calling their version the "Women For Mitt Coalition," and you'll never guess who they picked as their National Chairwoman. You got it: Ann Romney. Because as Mitt said earlier in his campaign, when he needs to know what the little ladies are thinking, he goes to his very own uterus whisperer who is also conveniently his wife.
Bet you're dying to know why she thinks he's the only choice for women aren't you? You aren't alone, because I certainly couldn't find the answer. Why, it's almost like the Romney campaign woke up this week and happened to notice that women don't care for Mitt's and the Republican's policies so much, and said to themselves "Quick, let's throw together some "fancy talk," spruce it up by putting Ann's name on it and throw it onto a web page. Yeah, that will do it!" Almost as good as the old Staples button:
"That was easy!"
Ugh.....no. Sorry. It's pathetic. The message seems to be: Vote for Mitt, because Ann says you should. Oh, and Obama is the President currently stuck dealing with the debt run up by our last "brilliant" GOP run "gubment like a bidness" and clearer of brush guy, the Dubya. But since we girls are better at measuring ingredients in the kitchen than we are at calculating dates and national debt, she hopes you won't notice. Vote for Mitt!
But should you have any doubts, there's a list of every other Republican women they could find to vouch for Ann, many which are repeats from my post yesterday, and no doubt we'll probably see them popping up in the media soon to offer up absolutely no good reasons to vote for Mittens.
That. Is. All. Well, actually there is one other thing there:
SHOPPING! Yes, just like the Florida ladies, but with less of a selection. There are three whole items there, one being a bumper sticker that says "Moms drive the economy."
Mom's may well drive the economy, but little does Mom realize that the road she's driving on under Mitt Romney leads to a hidden cliff with a drop-off larger than the Grand Canyon.
Good going team Romney. I can't think of a better way to win over the women's vote than insulting our intelligence and reinforcing the dim bulb, bubble headed stereotypes.
Sorry Ann, but most of us live in that place called "reality" and we can do the math without "the help."
