The Republican War on generally larger, slightly less colorful larvae

Reince Priebus, the far less entertaining and corporately-named from birth Republican National Chair, had a powerful statement to make yesterday, there is not a Republican War on Women:

“If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we’d have problems with caterpillars,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. “It’s a fiction.”

So there’s no Republican War on Women according to a Republican man. Republican woman, your turn?

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) spoke out forcefully in favor of reproductive rights on Wednesday in Homer, Alaska, as many in her party have sought to restrict them.

“It makes no sense to make this attack on women,” she said at a local Chamber of Commerce luncheon, according to the Homer News. “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”

Don’t worry, Reince Priebus will answer that one on behalf of his wife and daughters, it isn’t necessary for him to ask. Besides he really wants to rid the world of those annoying butterflies.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
