But where, oh where is he going to find any material for campaign ads that suggests Republicans aren't pro-women?

FTFA: Mr. Feehery called a recent essay on his Web site that offered advice to other Republicans, "Listen to Your Wife."

If you need this to be pointed out to you then you fail.

All this derp is probably going to cost them this election, but you've got to wonder how it's going to affect the future of the Republican Party as well. I mean, the Birther thing completely ended whatever small, tentative steps they were making to appeal to black voters. Embracing draconian anti-immigration measures has hurt them badly with Hispanic voters, and now all this derp chasing off women.

It's all aimed at keeping the scared old white people vote, and, true, those people vote more than any other. But they won't be voting that much longer.

Thing is, the older people get, the more narrow minded, and the more protective of their way of life (afraid if you will) they become. So there's always going to be old scared white people around.

I think this is purely apocryphal. I don't know a single person who has gone from being a democrat to a republican just because they got their AARP card. I asked my grandma (91 years old - lifelong Dem) and she does not know a single person who has changed their political affiliation just because they aged. Remember, Florida went to Obama in 2008.

If anything, people become more set in their ways.

You think? I'm an "old" person and I find just the opposite is true. In my opinion the older you get the more you realize that just because you believe something doesn't mean it's true. People can and do change, and once you pull your head outta your young ass you, too, will see that is true.

Hit send too soon... we're going to get older, and we want the Social Security and Medicare that we have paid into our whole lives -- something the Republicans want to take because it's an "entitlement" (which somehow became a bad word, even though we are legitimately entitled to the money we paid in). Things like that are going to be problematic for them.

Hey, it's only the Republican politicians that want to do away with it. Ask any American close to or beyond retirement age if they want to do away with Social Security, then be sure to step back so they won't take your head clean off your shoulders. Unfortunately, these people believe "entitlements" means government checks to support single black mothers' Friday nights at the club.

FWIW, my own grandmother (in her eighties) was a lifelong Dem *until* 2008. But, see, she grew up in the South. There were other reasons to support the Democratic Party in the South if you came of age in the '50s.

/No, I have no idea why it took seeing Obama on the ticket for her to realize the Party had changed.

Trust me, in Oklahoma, they all want to do away with it. Just for me though, not for them. Because they've already paid into it and they deserve their money, you see.

At this point I think they should just embrace what they truly are: the party for old, out of touch, wealthy white men. They'd win over some voters with their honesty.

Unfortunately, the word has been misused and abused to the point that it is never used properly. Everything they disparagingly refer to as entitlements are things people have paid into and are legitimately entitled to. Unfortunately, they make it sound like people are asking for or expecting something that is coming straight out of other people's pockets and they have no right to. How anyone can look at Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment benefits as something we don't all pay into and deserve is far beyond my brain's reach.

Especially when it's people who receive Social Security and Medicare.

As well it should. These old "welfare queens" living off of the Social Security I've paid in, demanding "cost of living" increases in Social Security and Medicaid, when they paid pennies in back when the average working wage was 1/4 of what it is now... WTF? Isn't it time they died so that I can keep my Social Security and Medicaid money?

Knowing how the gop "thinks", by around late November, they're gonna wake up from the catatonic stupor of having their asses handed to them, do some serious soul-searching, and come to the usual conclusion that they lost because they weren't mean-spirited and brutal enough to win.

Remember, this is a political party that thought that McCain taking the mic away from that crazy-haired cat lady and saying that Obama's not an Arab and he's a good person was his campaign-killer. In other words, the gop wants to be more like the crazy-haired cat lady.
