Quote of the Day

"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. It's a fiction."—Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on the war on women and other people with uteri, in an interview on Bloomberg Television's "Political Capital with Al Hunt" to air this weekend.

So, not only is the war on women and other people with uteri "fictional," but women are the equivalent of caterpillars.

You know, comparing people to insects, a practice which has a long and demonstrable history associated withe eliminationist rhetoric, does not really bolster the Republicans' case that they're not waging war on us.
