The RNCC is “meeting with top aides of sitting Republicans to teach them what to say—or not to say—on the trail, especially when their boss is running against a woman.”
In an effort to avoid another Akin “legitimate rape” disaster, which allowed the Democrats and their allies in the press to paint the entire GOP as women-haters, the RNCC is offering tutoring in the fine art of not offending 50% of the population.
I’m all for sensitivity training, but ultimately I doubt it will do much good. The Democrats know they can’t win by talking about jobs and the economy, so Culture War issues are all they have and they will pound them whether there is any there, there of not. It’s what they do, it’s who they are.
In my view, Bobby Schilling is particularly vulnerable to this War On Women shtick. I don’t know if it came up in the ’12 election with Bustos or not, but I’m certain it will be a factor in ’14 if the race is as close as some polls suggest.
