#Dems did a good job tonight conveying passion, empathy and inclusion. Going hard after swing women, the heart.
Empathy is for girls! Our silly little female brains just can’t handle big economic questions like, “Will I have a job tomorrow if Mitt Romney is president” or “is it possible my taxes may go up and the price of gas make going to work pay less?” These are not things that concern us in any way, so we don’t need to pay attention to the economy.
We’re all just sitting at home, getting our nails done, watching Kathie Lee and Hoda, and thinking about OUR CHILDREN. If we have political issues at all, they’re about our reproductive organs, so we can maybe hear some talk about breast cancer and abortion, but don’t let’s discuss money or we might get headaches.
And by the by, the Republicans only appealed to the human brain if you assume the human brain has been completely coated in spray cheese and set in front of Walker, Texas Ranger re-runs for ninety billion years. Absolutely none of their numbers add up, their braying about the deficit is humorous at best, and their vision of government is a gladiatorial pit in which poor people kill each other until only one is left and that one gets eaten by a cheetah.
In contrast, last night the Democrats started telling a story about community, about the way the world works when people work together, and about the ways government can facilitate that. If that’s a story just for chicks, call us Vagina Nation.
