The outlook for the unhinged Left’s secondary targets, however, is not so bright. Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, a tea party candidate who is not part of the GOP establishment, is being treated as collateral damage by the party. Outside of Wisconsin, most conservative activists are not even aware that she may be booted from office for simply doing her job. Kleefisch told me that on a recent fundraising swing in D.C., national GOP leaders were shocked to learn of her plight.
While Democratic femme-a-gogues continue their plaintive wailing about a “war on women,” Kleefisch has battled vile misogyny from liberal detractors. When lefty Wisconsin radio host John “Sly” Sylvester accused Kleefisch of performing “fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee” and sneered that she had “pulled a train” (a crude phrase for gang sex), feminists remained silent.
From The Blaze comes word of new-tone failure PA State Rep. Babette Josephs:
The controversial “Women’s Right to Know” bill under consideration in Pennsylvania would require that a woman have an ultrasound before being permitted to have an abortion. The notion has so enraged Democratic State Rep. Babette Josephs that she has openly lashed out at Republican women who support the measure.
At a rally on Monday, Josephs wondered aloud if the women who had co-sponsored the contentious bill were simply ”men with breasts.”
Perhaps the shabby treatment of women in politics is some left-handed indicator that they have ‘arrived’. But do politics have to go all Alinsky, and be an exercise in misogyny and misanthropy?
More to the point, are conservatives going to let Wisconsin turn into a full-on debacle?
