Women Are Caterpillars: The Media Life Cycle Of A Dumb Political Analogy

Here's the problem that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has: Mitt Romney, all but confirmed as the GOP's nominee for president, is standing on the wrong side of a yawning gender gap. Consequently, he'd love for the media to be having any discussion on any topic other than the myriad ways his party has recently sought to denigrate women. So today, in an interview with Bloomberg Television, he took his best shot:

“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,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. "It’s a fiction."

Okay, so it's pretty clear that Priebus would prefer that people believe that all those "personhood" laws, and the vaginal ultrasound laws, and the slut-shaming of women who want affordable access to the combination oral contraceptive for a myriad of reasons -- from family planning to the relief of painful ovarian cysts -- were just things that the media invented. That's a pretty untenable position to take, but since Priebus obviously cannot close the gender gap by promising to give women reproductive autonomy or increased access to vital health care, it's the only move he really has at the moment.


It should be noted that if you remove all the vowels from Reince Priebus' name you get the letters RNC PR BS.
