GOP guide to courting the vote of feeble lady-brains

Following the news that GOP House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican party are holding trainings for Republican politicians to learn how to speak to women, American Bridge has unearthed one of the GOP how-to videos shown to congressional candidates interested in wooing that all-important wacky dame vote.

Here are a few quotes from the manual, followed by the video itself:

Did you know that the 19th Amendment guarantees women the right to vote? And sometimes they even try to run for office. Fancy that!


Hope she doesn’t hurt herself!

When talking about a woman’s right to choose, don’t say “rape.” Try using a more pleasant euphemism, like “method of conception.” Watch how Paul [Ryan] does it:

“I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”

And women LOVE a good sense of humor:

GOP NJ GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE: “You know, something may go down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, sweetheart.” (Christie was responding to a woman in the audience who yelled “Christie kills jobs!”)

So remember, you don’t need to change your conservative views just because women voters find them horribly offensive, just change how you talk about them. Now go out there and get those dame votes!

The GOP how-to kit comes amidst a slew of Republican self-help strategies being issued just in time for Christmas.

Only yesterday, Rush Limbaugh released his guide to preserving the right to sexually harassing women in public.

And all of this comes on the heels of last year’s GOP blockbuster training hit: “How to talk Mexican.”

Those Republicans, they’ve got a solution to everything!

    Rand Paul doesn’t any conception of what women are really like if he thinks he can arbitrarily use a different term and make us think otherwise. His kind of thinking went out with whalebone corsets!

    I wanna bitch-slap a GOP dude Right Now!

    Every two weeks. That’s little Bodhi running on the beach up Maine.

    The video also forgot to tell Republicans that women like to get electric skillets on their birthdays. (snark)

  5. Whitewitch says:

    will try.

  6. Whitewitch says:

    Merry meet to you BeccaM. Blessings from she who is love.

  7. BeccaM says:

    Take care, Whitewitch, and happier Yule to you. Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again.

  8. Whitewitch says:

    Ditto my friend…does your puppy need a bath.

  9. karmanot says:

    And to you my dear—- peace, quiet and the celebrations of Solstice.

  10. See, this is why we post fun videos at night :) It can get to be too much after a while. I’ll be posting Obama’s eulogy for Mandela at 7pm ET, so maybe come back for that at least :)

    Don’t forget: complement the hair, bag, shoes and accessories.

    I have to take breaks periodically from the news or I’m afraid I might lose what little faith I have left in humanity.

    Hope you have a happy holiday! ^_^

  13. Whitewitch says:

    I think I am going to resign from reading political news for the remainder of the holiday season…it is just too depressing and people are going insane. Happy Holidays to all my Americablog friends! See after the first of the year.

    Sadly (or maybe not?) there are lots of Republicans and Tea Baggers who won’t realize this is intended as satire.

    Much the same way I feel certain lots of ’em look at Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and see not a dystopic horror-vision of misogyny, rape, and female enslavement but rather a “How To” guide for enacting the patriarchist utopia.

  15. Monoceros Forth says:

    Ah, but this video leaves out one valuable GOP method for impressing the ladies: explain that really you are the one who truly respects them because such things as contraception and legal abortion actually are degrading and demeaning to women.

    It all makes sense once you realize that the GOP is no longer a political party. It is just a therapy group with no facilitator.
