WASHINGTON, Aug. 11, 2015 — The war on women is over. And some would have us believe GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is the atomic bomb that brought the conflict to an abrupt end.
“Our bruised arms [are] hung up for monuments /… Our dreadful marches [changed] to delightful measures. / Grim-visaged war hath smooth’d his wrinkled front; / And now, instead of mounting barded steeds / To fright the souls of fearful adversaries, / He capers nimbly in a lady’s chamber / To the lascivious pleasing of a lute.”
So said Shakespeare’s Richard III before embarking on the bloody business of terminating all who stood twixt him and “the supreme seat, the throne majestical” — the British crown.
According to Morning Consult, a website that promises to provide its subscribing movers and shakers “actionable polling and market research data,” “real estate magnate Donald Trump’s lead over the Republican field grew … even after he invited a new round of scorn from fellow candidates over impolitic comments about Fox News host Megyn Kelly.”
It further states, “Trump leads the Republican field with 32 percent of the [GOP] vote, up 7 percentage points over last week’s Morning Consult tracking poll.”
Oh, and the Bush sibling stands at 11 percent.
Sandra Fluke, who rose to national prominence after saying in testimony before Congress that denying American women free contraception at taxpayer expense was tantamount to a war crime, sought to use her 15 minutes of fame to launch a political career.
Last year, Fluke lost her bid to win a seat in the California state senate. Her Democratic primary opponent, Ben Allen (a guy), won by a resounding 22 points. Even Golden State liberals don’t really believe there is a war on women.
Americans are growing increasingly angry at their bipartisan ruling elites and the media for their feeble attempts to keep the national conversation from straying beyond the boundaries of what they agree is acceptable speech.
Democrats, the media and more than a few Republicans running for president would very much like to paint Trump as the top generalissimo in the war on women.
The battle Trump is winning is not against women, but against being manipulated by the guardians of the nation’s political narrative. Trump says, “Screw that!” and talks about what he thinks is important.
If the mainstream media ever get tired of banging their collective head against the immovable brick wall that is Trump, they should do their jobs and simply report what he says.
The election of 2016 is not about Megyn Kelly or a fictional war on women. For the exuberant Donald Trump, it’s all about speaking truth to pinheads. And some of these pinheads just happen to be women.
Hillary Clinton certainly comes to mind.
