Good news, everyone! The Obama campaign has no specific plan on how to “fix” the “economy” but as far as they know, anyone with a vagina doesn’t care! And it’s not because free birth control will magically lead to the employment of the 23 million out-of-workAmericans, but because women have spent the last four years not paying attention to f***ing anything. So they don’t care about what happened!
When Mitt Romney talks about all these poor, unemployed people, it’s like he’s speaking a second language. Because as far as women voters are concerned, the last four years were meaningless. And it’s true because Stephanie Cutter says so.
“We’re going to talk about what the president wants to do in the future. That’s the other thing that you find most often with women. They’re not really concerned about what’s happened over the last four years, they really want to know what’s going to happen in the next four years.”
They’re not concerned with approximately 51% of the population. Because, obviously. Birth control! Planned Parenthood! VAGINA. Swoon.
There’s a bizarre double standard at work here. Technically, Stephanie’s implication is that women are idiots, and unlikely to consider the past performance of an elected leader in making their decisions, basing them on some other unknown quantity like presence of chest hair, likelihood of governing with shirt off, the possibility of free rubbers when needed. Like that chick in Fifty Shades of Grey. Anything else is just too deep for their pretty little heads. And heaven knows, they get all confused with those hormones and nail polishes and recipe books.
So we’re idiots if we vote for the other guy and idiots if we vote for their guy. Comforting. And liberated.
