• Ladies Love Them a Little Santorum

    The established wisdom on the perplexing rise of current GOP frontrunner Rick Santorum is that his inability to attract female voters will ultimately cost him the nomination.

    But according to a new poll, ladies are starting to take a shine to this Rick Santorum fellow

    Over the past several weeks, Republicans have watched squeamishly as presidential contender Rick Santorum has waded into multiple controversies that risk alienating half the 2012 electorate: women.

    But in fact, Santorum has grown more popular among women while talking about his opposition to abortion, his disapproval of birth control and his view that the federal government shouldn’t pay for prenatal screenings.

    A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows not only that Santorum is doing better among GOP women than he was a few weeks ago, but also that he is less unpopular…among Democratic and independent women than his Republican rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

    Well, you know what they say. Women love guys who treat them like dirt.

    Sure, Santorum will promise you a better economy, but then he'll just raise the middle-class tax rate and take away your right to an abortion.

    He'll shake your hand once, maybe at a rally, and tell you he loves your diner's home-cooked apple pie, but then he'll just devote all his attention to banning pre-natal care.

    Ugh, men! Can't live with 'em, can't hold a congressional hearing on birth control without 'em.
