2. Democrats seem to have surrendered in the War on Women--except
when they think they can get votes from it. Of course, I am speaking of our alleged representatives in D.C.

At the state level, many Democrats are fighting the good fight.

Democrats had some nice majorities in 2008. No one attempted to repeal the Hyde Amendment. To the contrary, Pelosi made a point of saying it was still the law of the land when she was negotiating for Obamacare.

The D of J can enforce the federal Constitution against the states. Never saw Holder blink on penetrating women for vaginal ultrasounds as states were passing laws to require them.

And so on.

As for diluting the word "war," for the sake of partisan politics, we'll have to agree to disagree.
