Some people I believe to be highly intelligent become remarkably selective with their listening comprehension ability when such selectivity meshes with their political preconceptions.

To hear some people tell it, this is Mike Huckabee saying awful things about women. Watch the clip and listen to what he says.

Huckabee is very clearly accusing the Democrats of being horribly overbearing when it comes to how they think the government should treat women. It’s not reasonable to watch that clip and come to any other conclusion.

Even if you really do believe the GOP is waging a “war on women,” do you really think Mike Huckabee would be so stupid?

Remember Julia? The Julia campaign was insulting to women because of all it implied they couldn’t do without government providing for them. Many women of my personal acquaintance saw this immediately. Huckabee is attacking the very same thing here—the notion that a campaign like Julia depicts an archetypal relationship between a woman and her government.

You want to have a vigorous exchange of ideas about that? Fantastic. Let’s go for it.

But let’s stop absurdly claiming Mike Huckabee said women can’t control their libidos. The only ambiguity in this clip is firmly rooted in politically selective perception.

  1. Yeah….my latest favorite campaign by Democrats….the birth control pill/Obamacare posters let me know how THAT party respects women.

    “OMG, he’s hot!” Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers,”

    • Oh, wasn’t that awful? To say that outrage was insufficient on that campaign is a massive understatement. I think some Obamanauts are so conditioned that anything would fly. He could sell processing the infirm into food Soylent Green-style as long as he said “Republicans oppose this” loudly enough.
