Apparently, the Democrats don’t think the average woman voter is very shrewd. They think women can be persuaded by exaggeration, oversimplification, and outright deceit. How else to explain the dumbed-down rhetoric coming from Democratic leaders at the Democratic National Convention’s Women’s Caucus Tuesday?
Former Fix Contributor Kate Havard, now of the Weekly Standard, attended the caucus. She reported that one woman, Jodi Salyers of Texas, emerged from the caucus saying: “I didn’t realize how anti-birth control, how anti-women, period, the Republicans are until today.”
Anti-birth control? Is that really part of the Republican platform? Not last time I checked.
Never mind reality, the DNC Women’s Caucus was led by Nancy Pelosi, Valerie Jarrett, and a slew of other speakers who were bent on talking nonsense in order to ramp up some Obama love among the double-x chromosome crowd in Charlotte. Truth was no obstacle for them.
