Maybe Barbara Boxer is just a man-hating shrew. There, we’re even.
“There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan — if they are elected — would become its top generals,” Boxer said, urging the audience to remember the days when desperate women and girls died in botched, back-alley abortions. “We cannot go back.”
Getting a bit hysterical, aren’t we, Babs?
“Where’s the outrage by Mitt Romney?” Boxer asked. “There is a sickness out there in the Republican Party, and I’m not kidding. Maybe they don’t like their moms or their first wives; I don’t know what it is.”
First wives? What’s that in reference to?
Boxer also noted the Republican crusade to defund Planned Parenthood — an organization for which President George H.W. Bush and the wife of 1964 Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater sat on the board of directors.
Of Akin, Boxer said, “He’s thinking to himself, ‘Why should I be the fall guy?’” when it’s Ryan who “self-describes himself as the most anti-choice person in the whole Congress — he calls it ‘pro-life.’”
Just keep talking.
It’s funny, but where was the outrage from the left when Bill Clinton was accused of rape and when their OWS stormtroopers went around the country raping women last fall? We didn’t hear a peep from them. I guess only “some rape” counts.
