Turn Kentucky Blue – The Republican War On Women – ‘Wooing the Ladies: Mitch McConnell Fundraiser Thinks Wives Are Obligated to Have Sex’
‘Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has some pallin’-around-with-a-misogynistic-dinosaur problems, according to a report from Alexandra Jaffe at The Hill’.
‘Jaffe writes that the Republican Senator will be having a Wednesday fundraiser co-hosted by a conservative talk radio host Dennis Prager’.
‘Jaffe directs the reader to a few of Prager’s op-eds for conservative publications like TownHall.com and National Review’.
‘In the National Review, Prager argued against sexual “hookups”, fearing as he does that a “promiscuous” woman gives herself depression and destroys marital sex once she lands that All Important Man.
‘While arguing why careers shouldn’t matter to women, the Precious Mind of Prager tells us that women are like fish,:
“But most women are not programmed to prefer a great career to a great man and a family. They feel they were sold a bill of goods at college and by the media. And they were. It turns out that most women without a man do worse in life than fish without bicycles.”
Yes, Prager made that argument in a TownHall article entitled “When a Woman Isn’t In The Mood, Part II” :
‘He writes, “Why would a loving, wise woman allow mood to determine whether or not she will give her husband one of the most important expressions of love she can show him? What else in life, of such significance, do we allow to be governed by mood?”
‘At any rate, this clearly fearful, controlling person is co-hosting a fundraiser for the Senate Minority Leader’.
‘Team McConnell is foolishly not worried, and tried to hang their hat on McConnell’s record for caring about women’.
- ‘I’m not sure if they meant his voting no on the Violence Against Women Act – calling it a “distraction”,
- ‘Or his vote against Equal Pay — calling it a “special interest vote”,
- ‘Or his votes against raising the minimum wage when over 250,000 Kentucky women would benefit from an increase in the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour’.
