It’s amazing the author of this article chose to quote the sister of the rightwing Pat Buchanan, whose perceptiveness is just as uninsightful and misogynist. Here’s a message to the benighted Buchanans: birth control and women’s reproductive rights are not “red herrings”, and the War on Women that these radical religious fanatics like yourselves are waging is the reason for the gender gap and women voting for ANYONE but a REPUBLICAN. Read my lips: It is NOT the economy, stupid! What is a tough sell is the fact that you can’t be woman-hating fascists and then put on your hypocritical smiles and expect anyone to believe that you are anything else. We see you for who you really are and no amount of cosmetics is going to cover up the ugliness you now want to hide in order to get our votes. Reality is coming back to kick your collective backside and it’s name is WOMAN!
