On the positive side, it was only lame and ignorant instead of vile and offensive.

So...progress?

That was stupid.  If they really wanted to show solidarity with women, they would have posed in a kitchen, on their knees scrubbing the floor while yelling at the kids to quiet down and let daddy unwind after work with his pipe and scotch.

I'm a pretty pasty white guy.  This might be the whitest thing I've ever seen.  You can almost here the Lawrence Welk band playing while looking at it.

There is a Playboy hidden inside each magazine like I did when I was young and thought I was fooling my father.

Their binders are glossier than Romney's were.

Silly GOP, twitter pictures are for foreign policy, not campaigning.

No, both are valid.  One raises awareness of a horrible deed and helps to put pressure on governments to do something about it, the other makes it plain to even the most dim-witted that the GOP is comprised of clueless misogynists with a warped, juvenile sense of "humor"

Both are valuable.

Patronizing Women is not understanding them, numbnuts.

They're probably honestly looking up thirty new ways to drive your man wild.

Michelle Obama is in charge of foreign policy? Does John Kerry know about this?

Dear Republicans,

Stop trying to understand the dames. They're prone to the hysterics and just plain unpredictable.

Next they're going to pose eating chalupas at Taco Bell.

But since they're rich white men they'll be eating the steak chalupas and not the chicken those poors are known to ingest.

Gotta love their excuse. "Someone gave us the magazines and asked to take our picture!"

Idiots...

Seriously, US Yankee politics is better than Coronation Street.

Yeah, I WENT THERE.

Broads don't like it when you call them dames.

/that is the joke, I know

How's about this ladies, we'll read a fashion column and you give us control of your lady bits, fair trade?

They don't need outreach to women when they have the black, Hispanic and youth vote all sewn up.
 
2014-06-06 08:25:08 PM  
We all know the way to reach out to women is through sex. They like having lots of sex.it's the most important thing in their lives.
 
2014-06-06 08:41:38 PM  
Women are minorities?

fusillade762: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Next they're going to pose eating chalupas at Taco Bell.

"What are you doing for the Latino community today?"

The mayor replied on camera: "I might have tacos when I go home. I'm not quite sure yet."


Almost went with that, too lazy.

FTFA "It was talen out of context."

Honest question, has any member of the GOP said or done ANYTHING 'in context'?

As a man, I have to say that picture works for me.

Oh, and you get a mention in the next thread up about the new Fox News contributor ;)

Who the hell reads Playboy for the porn anymore anyway?

sirrerun: Women are not a minority, Failmitter.


They tend to vote for Democrats more than Republicans. That's enough for the GOP to view them as minorities.
 
2014-06-06 09:43:47 PM  
Well if their opponents were really concerned about being in touch with women, this would be a wise approach. They just didn't think about the fact that "women" really means "feminists" in political code
 
2014-06-06 10:04:44 PM  
...is one of them holding the magazine upside down?

They look as sincere as a bunch of old-timey snake-oil salesmen.

At least they didn't rape anybody.

Anyone else notice that the dude on the left in this picture is holding his magazine upside-down?

jaerik: ...is one of them holding the magazine upside down?


Maybe it's one of those double issues where they flip the back half?
