Republican Congressman Struggles With Word: ‘Um…Um…’

“Birth control!” At a political debate on Thursday night, a GOP candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives left the room laughing after he struggled to answer a question on his position on reproductive rights. Rep. Mike Coffman (R), who’s running for re-election in Colorado’s 6th congressional district, needed help from the crowd to remember [...]

Definer of rape Todd Akin said that another run for office wasn’t off the table. The former Republican Congressman spoke last week with Joseph Farah of the right wing conspiracy site WorldNetDaily, which is publishing his new book. Right Wing Watch notes that Akin is morphing the controversy over his “legitimate rape” remarks into a battle between [...]

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) tells us: “You think about a changing 21st-century workforce and how women make up half of our workforce. Fifty percent are the primary income earners in their households,” McMorris Rodgers said a press conference on Wednesday. “They are making the majority of purchasing decisions — 80, 85 percent of purchasing [...]

A month ago, the Supreme Court struck down the 2007 Massachusetts Buffer Zone law as unconstitutional, leaving millions seething at the utter stupidity of our judicial system. Yesterday, Governor Deval Patrick signed a new bill, An Act to Promote Public Safety and Protect Access to Reproductive Health Care Facilities, to take the place of the [...]

The two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for domestic violence has provoked angry reaction from fans and commentators, but ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith wants to remind everyone that the ladies should be sure not to “do anything to provoke” violence from men. On Friday morning’s First Take, Smith said that while he agreed that [...]

As the GOP continues to fail miserably at reaching out to women (or anyone else who is not an old white man), Todd Akin continues to helpfully make the rounds talking about “legitimate rape,” as he did in an interview with Chuck Todd Thursday morning. In case you missed it, then-Congressman Akin (R-MO), in 2012, [...]

Does the Republican Party richly deserve to have their conference on messaging to women be represented by the more perfect than perfect quote urging male GOPers to “bring it down to a woman’s level?” Maybe, but that remark by Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) actually is being taken out of context to suggest that she thinks [...]

Not that there’s a war on women or anything. Mitch McConnell, fighting to keep his job against Alison Lundergan Grimes, says there are plenty of women CEO’s and we’re pretty much at total equality. So what are the little ladies whining about, eh? “I don’t grant the assumption that we need to sort of give [...]

Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee, is apparently the head of her party’s wildly successful outreach to women program, too. Ellmers participated on Friday in a panel on women and the Republican Party, which was not one of their better ideas. The GOP hasn’t  actually had any good ideas on outreaching [...]
