  1. "The GOP elephant in the rape room is this: among the socially conservative base of the Republican Party is a core group of faith-based misogynists who believe 1) women lie about being raped, and 2) that it’s the women’s fault when she gets raped. The code words and dog whistles about “forcible rape” and the jihad against birth control that have come to dominate the GOP are all fueled by that very real fundamentalist sexism. "
  2. You can see that here as well, men who have wives, but would deny them the franchise of voting. Odd, very odd indeed.
  3. isnt it interesting that no women hang around et. wonder why.
  4. Pavlov would be so proud of you folks learning to respond to "dog whistles and all".
    It's really quite an astounding feat.
