Every time it gets close to a federal election cycle, the Republicans do the same stuff. They get the same scare tactics, straw men, and fact-free talking points out of the closet and beat their voters over the head with them until they are numb enough to vote Republican one more time.
Very long ago, a very smart guy noticed this trend, and called it out for exactly what it is.
George Carlin completely NAILED Republican attitudes towards women decades ago. “They’re anti-women, they don’t like ’em!”
NSFW warning: This IS George Carlin, so there is some adult language, but you seriously have got to watch this. Its simply perfect.
