Palmetto State Leads Democrats’ “War On Women?”

Published

NO … BUT VINCENT SHEHEEN HAS MADE A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK SO …

By FITSNEWS || Do we believe there’s a Democratic “war on women?” No.  Nor do we believe there’s a “Republican” one.

To us, neither party is doing a lick of good on the issues that matter (or should matter) to men and women – specifically the protection of individual freedom and the ability of all Americans to provide for themselves and their families within the free market.

But because the one party of big government (a.k.a. the Dems) has successfully branded the other party of big government (a.k.a. the “Republicans”) as anti-woman, the accused party is looking for any opportunity to “flip the script.”

Enter S.C. Sen. Vincent Sheheen – the Democratic nominee for governor of the Palmetto State.

Sheheen – who was already running a perfectly useless losing campaign to “Republican” Nikki Haley – gave the national GOP a big hand in its effort to turn the tables on one of the Democratic party’s favorite narratives: the “war on women.”

But on the way down Sheheen (inadvertently?) called Haley a whore – and then laughed about it.  And then didn’t really apologize for it.

And despite the best efforts of the South Carolina mainstream media to cover the story up … we broke it wide open.  And it became a very big deal.

Now … is Haley a whore?

Well …

The veracity of the statement notwithstanding, though, Sheheen should have known better.   And while he got lucky when the lazy and intellectually incurious South Carolina “MSM” took an initial pass on the story, there was no way it wasn’t going to blow up … no matter who was (or wasn’t) pushing it.

In the latest fallout from the gaffe, the Republican National Committee released a video last Friday entitled “Democrats Degrade Women.”  Not surprisingly, it leads with Sheheen’s comment.

Yeah …

Again, this is all silliness – a “him, too” debate which totally ignores the extent to which whores (we’re speaking politically now) in both parties are screwing over the people they were elected to serve.

But silly or not … Sheheen should have known better.  In addition to hurting his already slim chances against Haley, he’s now hurting Democrats across the country with his gaffe.
