After the whole War on Women business erupted and Romney repeatedly proved himself to have no idea what women want—except for his wife, Ann, of course, on whom he is the world's foremost expert—the Republicans decided to buckle down and try to appeal to women on economic issues; since even women understand they need money to buy food and stuff. However, Karl Rove and friends have taken the bizarre approach of back-handedly shaming women for falling for the "guilty pleasure" of Obama's smooth talking ways and then trying to lure us into the safe arms of a Republican man. Oh, yes, that ought to work wonderfully.
In trying to puzzle out why Mitt Romney is doing better with women these days, Judith Grey writes about this icky strategy in the Daily Beast. She gives it as evidence of something that's working, since a new poll found that support for Romney among women has improved. We already discovered that one of these polls was total bullshit, but this new poll does show that Obama only leads by 7 points among women now, whereas in April he led by 19 points. Ho hum. These things happen, and the anti-Romney frenzy was bound to die down a bit after the total birth control shitstorm that erupted and subsequently made all conservatives look anti-woman. Anyway, it appears that the shift that has taken place is largely due married women changing their minds. So all the single ladies are still indulging in imaginary nights spent with the President.
