The Speaker of the House of Representatives is a Democratic woman (although she'll be replaced by a Republican man should the GOP pick up 39 seats this fall). The Secretary of State is a Democratic woman. So are thirteen U.S. senators (compare to four Republican women). So are 56 members of the House (compare to 17 Republican women). So are three associate justices of the Supreme Court (compare to zero Republican women), including the two most recent appointees. So are 17 percent of state legislators (compare to seven percent who are Republican women). So are 50 statewide elected executive officeholders (compare to 20 Republican women). But what Democratic women really need, according to Anna Holmes and Rebecca Traister, is a failed vice presidential candidate who can babble incoherently at rallies, on television, and on Facebook.
I don't get it. Neither does Jonathan Bernstein, whose rebuttal is excellent.
