I’m not sure that comparing women to caterpillars is the way to go:
The leaders of the two political parties clashed over the role of gender in U.S. elections, with the Democrat saying her opponents have been “shockingly out of touch” on women’s issues and the Republican saying Democrats and the media have created a phony conflict.
“If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we’d have problems with caterpillars,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. “It’s a fiction.”
If you’re talking about denying women preventative health care and writing laws about what doctors must shove up their vaginas then it is a bit dismissive to say that women’s concerns are phony. I’m not sure what Mr. Priebus is supposed to say in his party’s defense, but this wasn’t it.
