"...[The] Republicans don't have a war on women. They have a war for women -- for them to be empowered, to be something other than victims of their gender. Women I know are outraged that Democrats think that women are nothing more than helpless and hopeless creatures whose only goal in life is to have a government provide for them birth control medication.

"Women I know are smart, educated, intelligent, capable of doing anything anyone else can do. Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That's not a war on them, it's a war for them.

"And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it, let's take that discussion all across America because women are far more than Democrats have made them to be. And women across America have to stand up and say, enough of that nonsense."

-- Former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate (and current scam artist) Mike Huckabee, emphatically mansplaining that Republicans are not waging a war on women... and then providing direct evidence that such a war does, in fact, exist. Huckabee spoke yesterday in Washington, D.C. at the winter meeting of the Republican National Committee.
