Reince Priebus, the far less entertaining and corporately-named from birth Republican National Chair, had a powerful statement to make yesterday, there is not a Republican War on Women:
“If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we’d have problems with caterpillars,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. “It’s a fiction.”
So there’s no Republican War on Women according to a Republican man. Republican woman, your turn?
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) spoke out forcefully in favor of reproductive rights on Wednesday in Homer, Alaska, as many in her party have sought to restrict them.
“It makes no sense to make this attack on women,” she said at a local Chamber of Commerce luncheon, according to the Homer News. “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”
Don’t worry, Reince Priebus will answer that one on behalf of his wife and daughters, it isn’t necessary for him to ask. Besides he really wants to rid the world of those annoying butterflies.
