The War on Women

For its championing of medieval policies, the GOP used to suffer at the polls from what was called the "gender gap", an electoral gap whereby women consistently voted by a 3-5% margin for Democrat over Republican candidates.  But now it appears that almost quaint phrase just won't do to describe the problems of a party that is said to be conducting an outright "War on Women."

If you're interested in how the other side thinks, or rather, how it engages in hysterical myth making (not to say lies), check out uber-liberal Frank Rich's analysis of the GOP's women problem.

In the meantime, help me out:  Why, I've wondered for many years now, is the gender gap only a Republican problem with women and not also a Democrat problem with men?
