Right-Wing War on Women: John McCain Has No Principles Except Power
First, he votes for legislation that would let employers use their religion to prevent female employees from having contraception covered in their health insurance.
But now he sees that — *gasp* — women are voters too, and aren’t going to stand for it much longer, having male Republicans’ hands stuck up their vaginas! So, always with a keen eye for who to pander to, to try to get lots and lots of power (can you say “Sarah Palin,” anyone?), McCain is now counselling his fellow Republicans to let up on their war against women.
On Meet the Press, when asked if he thinks there’s a Republican war on women, McCain said:
I think we have to fix that. I think that there is a perception out there because of how this whole contraception issue played out — ah, we need to get off of that issue, in my view. I think we ought to respect the right of women to make choices in their lives and make that clear, and get back onto what the American people really care about.
Nice try, Johnny boy. But women have noticed. And do you think they’re so simple-minded that just shutting your mouths till early November is going to make them forget that you had your hands all over their genitals?? Not bloody likely, bucko.
You used to have some principles, John. How low the principled have fallen.
