Oooooh! Gonna be a knife fight in GOP Alley!

From Maureen Dowd's column:
<snip>
As W.s former aide Karen Hughes put it in Politico on Friday, If another Republican man says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime, I want to personally cut out his tongue.
<snip>

One of my knives.

I'd consider it improving the public conversation.

He was completely devoid of substance. That he got any votes at all just shows how morally bankrupt Republicans are.

25. I don't think anybody was listening to her.

I'll bet she felt that way since the get go. I think she probably said it to as many peope as she could. I don't like her one bit, but she isn't a stupid person. Hughes also knows her politics.

The Teashitters do not listen to anybody. The establishment GOPeas tried to deal with them on a variety of issues. We only got glimpses of it. The Teabots were and are determined to do it their way. The fiscal crap had a little bit of appeal but when they veered into social issues it was ABANDON SHIP for a lot of people listening.

I believe, and I think many GOPeas do too, that they have to learn the hard way. You will not get elected if you live on Gondwanaland. Many won't ever learn, but at least they won't be elected.

Women, African-Americans, Latinos, and all others who are treated as lesser.

19. Actually, white women voted for Romney...

by a margin of 56% to 42%. That surprised me. I thought the margin would've been tighter...

15. This is the equivalent of darth vadar apologizing to luke at the end of episode 6 of star wars.

He was a dick for the run of episodes 4,5 and 6, yet at the end of 6, he makes nice with luke by giving up the evil force and all is better.

karen hughes helped build this monster, now she's sorry, so we are now supposed to forget all the water carrying she did for george w. moron*?

I support all women against the gop asshole rape comments. I support karen hughes just a little less.

I just agreed with someone named Dry Hump.

And that's alright.

23. Karen, the problem is not what they said about rape.

The problem is they believe a woman should be forced to bear the rapist's progeny. How ya gonna fix that?

about their regressive stand on women's rights. This leopard will never change its spots and they count on the voting public to forget.

27. Meh.

Where the hell has she been all along? She can say whatever she wants. It's what she actually believes that matters. Her 'cut out his tongue' statement reminds me of Chik-Fil-A saying that they won't discriminate/donate to anti-gay causes. It sounded great on the surface, but that's not what happened.

28. When she says "says" that is all that she means. The rest of the article goes on to explain that

the way things are said is what is important - not that they are wrong.

Some other GOP talking head said the same thing - policy is not what needs to be changed - just the wording. ANd that is exactly what they will do in the future - only be careful of how they say things.

As Foxs Megyn Kelly said to Karl Rove on election night, when he argued against calling Ohio for Obama: Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?
