Stay OUT of My Panties Part 1

Huckabee Up in Women's Panties

In the memorable words of former President Ronald Reagan,"...there you go again!" goes to failed
presidential candidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in reference to his comments about women's "libido's," during his speech at the RNC winter meeting. 

Say what? Yes read on...these folks have the gift of gab that keeps on giving.

The Huckster "opened mouth and inserted foot" when he argued that Democrats believe women are "helpless" and in need of government handouts and that Republicans want to empower women "to be something other than victims of their gender."

“Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without 'Uncle Sugar' coming in and for providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or reproductive system without the help of the government - then so be it," Huckabee said. Who the hell is "Uncle Sugar?" Is he saying that Uncle Sam got some sugar in his tank?

These poor Republicans just don't seem to get it as they continue to alienate women by calling them "sluts," talking about legitimate rape", pregnancies from rape are God given," "vaginal probes," and all manner of orchestrating policies to restrict any reproductive justice gains demanded by those over 8 Million women and counting who voted in 2004.

Just as a reminder Mr.Huckabee, your party has had a short list of programs under GOP attack including those helping women with parental leave, cancer screening, HIV testing, job training, supporting moms and babies, aging, nursing care, wage theft, fair pay and countless others that threaten women at all economic levels. Hey Huck, what does Janet have to say about keeping her libido in check. Keep up the good work mansplaining the GOP right out of existence.

"The Latino Gender Gap in US Politics"

Christina Bejarano, associate professor of political science at the University of Kansas 

Latino political participation in the United States is generally lower than the rest of the population, mainly due to their high proportion of youth and foreign born populations that are ineligible to vote. This dynamic is slowing changing, partly as a result of the rapidly growing Latino population in the United States.  Bejarano delves deeper into the complex gender differences for Latino political behavior. More specifically, it is a political analysis of the diverse U.S. Latino population and the interacting factors that can influence male and female differences in voting and policy attitudes. As the Latino population highlights their growing political sway, the major political parties have and will strategically mobilize and court the Latino electorate, Latinas in particular.
