Wily Republicans Insist Women Aren't Getting Jobs Because of ObamaKatie J.M.

The GOP can't afford to alienate the ladies, yet doesn't have all that much to offer them in exchange for votes, what with this whole "war on women" thing going on. Its initial strategy — denial — hasn't been too successful, although RNC Chairman Reince Priebus gave it his best shot last week when he proclaimed the "war on women" as mythical as "the war on caterpillars," but that, of course, made absolutely no sense. Now, the Republican National Committee is trying a different, smarter tactic: it's attempting to draw attention away from the party's rampant misogyny by attacking the Obama administration for failing its female constituency.
