Mitch McConnell was on WHAS this morning to say “War on Women? What war on women?”
“Talk about a manufactured issue — there is no issue,” he said on Louisville, Ky., radio station WHAS-AM. “Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Kelly Ayotte from New Hampshire and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe from Maine I think would be the first to say — and Lisa Murkowski from Alaska — ‘we don’t see any evidence of this.’”
Yes, Mitch. Why don’t we ask Murkowski and Snowe about that?
Murkowski, however, recently criticized her own party for its focus on reproductive rights.
“It makes no sense to make this attack on women,” she said last Wednesday on KBBI’s Coffee Table program, according to the Homer News. “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”
Snowe called the recent controversy over the Obama administration’s contraception mandate a “retro-debate that took place in the 1950s.”
Is it just me, or is Mitch beginning to lose his edge? Maybe a woman will come along in 2014 in Kentucky (cough, Crit, cough) to give him a proper education.
Via B&P, Mitch was also wildly off base last week on domestic oil production, and called out by FactCheck.org.
Mitch used to be one of the most adept political fibbers in the land.
