Payback's A Bitch
Hilary Rosen's comments were a spectacular own goal by Democrats but also a result of their recent overreach in attacking Republicans for a supposed "war on women" and portraying Rush Limbaugh as the leader of the GOP.
Perhaps the most preposterous thing Rosen said on CNN last night was not the foolish "never worked a day in her life" jibe aimed at Ann Romney but her contention that Republicans invented the notion of a "war on women".
"Well, first, can we just get rid of this word 'war' on women?" she said. "The Obama campaign does not use it. President Obama does not use it. This is something that the Republicans are accusing people of using, but they're actually the one spreading it."
The problem with that is (h/t Bob Obringer for most of these links) that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee drew up a petition protesting the "Republican war on women". So too did the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. And Nancy Pelosi described the Ryan budget as a "war on women".
And here's Joe Biden, declaring that the "war on women" will escalate.
