A real War on Women


I'm pretty sure that all but the most naive and passionate feminists understood the War on Women for what it was: a cynical ploy to gin up female votes for Obama.  After all, if a true "War on Women" was being waged by the GOP, wouldn't President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Reid be waging that war with abandon, seeing as it is (presumably) savaging its intended targets, who also happen to be half the country? Wouldn't the President move Heaven and Earth to end the onslaught?

Instead, since the election, it's (predictably) been tax increases, gun control, climate change.  Thanks for the votes, ladies.  We'll see you (along with some new sense of crisis) in about 3 1/2 years.  By then, you'll be taxed a bit more and making a bit less in real terms, but hey, that's just a political two-fer.  Our "War on Women" and "War on the Poor" narratives will both be coming straight at you.

In the meantime, if anyone's actually interested to see what a real War on Women looks like, here's a look.  It ain't pretty.
