Pro-Life Senator Unsurprisingly Mystified by WomenS

Nebraska Senator Bill Kintner is your standard all-American conservative unborn angel-lover: pro-life, anti-Obama, all that jazz. He was also recently interviewed for a Vanity Fair Proust Questionaire-ish Q&A in which he tried to be charming by admitting he thinks ladies be crazy. Hmm.

He told the Journal Star:

Biggest mystery? Women. No one understands them. They don't even understand themselves. Books and books and books have been written about it, and no one understands it.

Men are very easy to understand. Very basic, very simple.

Despite seminal works like Men are from Mars, Women are From Venus and the Bible, women still don't understand themselves. That's why men like Kintner have to enact laws for them!

Also, re: his wife. What does this mean?

In our household, we have a separation of powers. The legislative is downstairs and the executive is upstairs. We don't talk about what she does on her side and what I do on my side. There's no sharing of inside information.

At first glance, seems egalitarian. But actually means "lady stuff is baffling, so I don't even try."

However, he does call himself an ice-cream snob. What an elitist!
