Sadly, however, this is what Reince Priebus, the head of the RNC, believes that Mrs. Field and all other A-merry-can women look like.
Read what Vanessa over at Feministing wrote:
"RNC Chairman Reince Priebus had the loveliest thing to say yesterday about the discussions around the GOP’s “war on women” that’s been dominating the political landscape as of late:
“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.”I’ll admit I’m kind of loving how these GOP tactics to try to dismiss this conversation as silly and meaningless are just further trivializing the issues that women and other folks with uteri care about, and just keep diggin’ themselves deeper and deeper into this hole of voter abandonment."

Well Mr. Priebus, eventually caterpillars become beautiful butterflies. But unfortunately for you and your party, they won't be flying your way come November.
Finally, I hate to agree with Jason Whitlock, but the issue he raised about the Trayvon Martin case has been bothering me as well.
Why is it that during the entire O.J. Simpson circus white folks were saying that he was guilty before we even had a trial? Why did they excoriate and berate the jurors who found him not guilty? In their minds they all thought he was guilty, and they made no bones about it. (BTW, I thought that he was guilty as well. Yes black folks, I hate to break it to you, but O.J. killed his wife and that young man that night.)So why does George Killerman get the benefit of the doubt? Why can't these same people convict Mr. Killerman in the court of public opinion the way they did O.J.? That was a rhetorical question. I know the answer:Trayvon is not a woman, and he is not blond.
"..long before Geraldo Rivera preached to Trayvon Martin’s parents about the evils of hoodies, he sat on CNBC during the mid-1990s and led the media prosecution of O.J. Simpson. Geraldo was so good at it and the American public so enamored by it that smart TV executives quickly launched MSNBC (July 15, 1996) and FOX News (Oct. 7, 1996) to capitalize on the ratings gold Geraldo discovered.
So forgive me for pointing out the obvious: At best, the whining about the left-wing media’s passionate belief that Zimmerman should be arrested and charged with a crime in the death of Martin is embarrassingly hypocritical and delusional. At worst, it reveals an appalling racial bias.
There is significantly more evidence that Zimmerman committed a crime on Feb. 26, 2012 than there ever was that Simpson committed one on June 12, 1994. The Trayvon Martin case isn’t a who-done-it. We don’t have to speculate about motives or opportunity. We know who was carrying the gun and who was carrying the Skittles. We know who a police dispatcher advised to abandon pursuit. We know who was the 28-year-old wannabe cop complaining about “f---ing ‘oons” and who was the 17-year-old boy talking to his girlfriend.
It took five days for the police to arrest and charge O.J. Simpson. Thirty-six days after police listed Martin as John Doe, George Zimmerman is a free man and apparently being elevated to martyrdom in some influential circles."
Correction Jason, it's been 39 days. But who is counting?
