Todays nucklehead comment from the leader of the Republican Party.

“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.”

— RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, quoted by Bloomberg TV, insisting that the GOP’s “war on women” is fiction.

So, let me get this straight, in the span of just a few short months women have been likened to birthing farm animals and now insects. I’ve been called a lot of things, but never a “caterpillar”. But I’m sure he meant that in the nicest possible way.

NOT.

I really hope they don’t actually wonder why independent women are running, screaming, away from this party and their candidate.

Or did he mean this Caterpillar?

    We expected some sort of sense from someone who’s named Reince Priebus, and saddest of all, surely looks like it. Being old is recalling when elements of the GOP (the late Betty Ford for one) actually were for the ERA, the first time. Nothing but crickets since.

    Unrelated: ‘Wednesday marks the 44th anniversary of the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis, Tenn., where he’d gone to support a strike by black sanitation workers.’

    How about starting a new movement for human rights for all & labor organizing as a civil right?

    the most offensive part of the quote is that it just doesn’t make any sense.
