Do Women Think Only With Their......

Marc Comtois

As a husband, father, son, brother, friend etc. of fine ladies young and old, I think a political campaign that continually targets women by focusing on areas related to female sexuality does a disservice to the most important organ women have: their brains.

I'm pretty sure women are also interested in the economy and foreign policy, after all. Yet, boxing people into demographic groups is what happens during the political season and we're all used to it, I suppose. Simplify and hone the message and all that.

However, to produce an ad like that is aimed at appealing to young women voters by likening voting to their "first time"?

That isn't hip or cool or edgy, it's gross and cheap in what it implies. Hey, wanna hook up with the Prez? I thought we left that behind with the Clinton years.

This woman has definitely watched way too much Rachel Madcow-her brain is rotted

Need I say what the response would be if the partisan roles were reversed on this ad?

Not my kind of gal. And that is before we get to all the ink. I wonder if she has ass antlers?

Well said on every point, Marc.

The expression "barefoot and pregnant" is used (very rarely now) as a slam against a male chauvinist's narrow attitude towards women.

The Obama campaign now seems to have projected that expression onto women - as though the only thing that women care about is to be barefoot and not pregnant.
