Public Service Announcement: I Am A Woman Voter, and I Care About Issues Other Than Abortion and Birth Control
FYI, politicians. There. I've spelled it out for you. Do I really have to add that I think it's insulting of you to reduce me to those things? to campaign to me as if those are the issues that will determine my vote? I had thought that the DNC's loopy estrogen festival was absolutely hilarious, but I don't think the ongoing attempts to win the "woman vote" are funny anymore. I'm getting reeeeeeeeeeeeeally tired of this particular brand of campaigning. Guess what, Poindexter: women care about jobs too, and energy costs and taxes and debt. To think otherwise would be ... what's the word I'm looking for? ... oh yes, SEXIST.
