The RNC Explains The Political Gender Gap

Filed in National by on February 2, 2010

The RNC has a plan on how to recruit women candidates:

“Women sometimes need a little more handholding, or they need their friends to help them make a decision. And by our going in and talking to them and recruiting and educating and training them to either get involved in a campaign or become a candidate, we’re giving them the tools so that they can do that on their own.”

— RNC co-chair Jan Larimer, quoted by The Hotline, on the Republican party’s strategy to recruit more women candidates.

I would put a snarky remark/witty comment here but there’s no man around to hold my hand.

    I’ll post my snarky/witty comment after my friends help me decide on which one.

    I agree with Larimer. I think is cute when the gals get all involved in politics.

    Let’s see the Democratic party do better.

    And, similarly, know what my kids learned in YMCA youth group tonight? Male staff told room full or middle and high school girls and boys “The most important thing you have to know about girls, boys, is to always say “No” when they ask you if “this makes them look fat”.

    Honest to God. Direct quote. My daughter was LIVID.

  4. Jason330 says:

    Rush Limbaugh is running YMCA youth group now?

  5. Brooke’s daughter is as wacked as she is? Stop making her paranoid. It is true and funny.

    im sure your wife is a very happy womyn, david. Pig.

  7. Brooke says:

    David, the room was full of girls. Sensible thing to do if you want to know what’s important to them is to ask, and listen to the answer. That’s science.

  8. I would never marry a womyn. I love a real womAn who values children instead of aborting them.

  9. Brooke says:

    Good, David. I have 5. I’m probably your ideal woman, barring that they taught me to read.

  10. a.price says:

    really david? i only like females who enjoy using abortion as birth control… like any good liberal.

  11. a.price says:

    taught you to read???!!!! SHE’S A WITCH!!!!!! THE CHURCH MANDATES WE BURN HER!!!! FOR JESUS!!!!

  12. That does not surprise me, Price. Abortion is men’s liberation from responsibility.

  13. a.price says:

    oh trust me. i would LOVE a baby… sell it’s stem cells, harvest it’s organs to china.

    funny thing SOME women use abortion to save their lives, or prevent the baby form suffering from tay-sacs, or to distance themselves from a rapist. crazy gals
    …. but you and i know they are missing the potential. both spiritually, and the dollars…. OH the dollars. so much money to be made from one of those little DNA farms.
