A new study commissioned by two right-wing groups has an interesting, if not surprising, result: Women don't think Republicans respect them. Nearly 50 percent of the women polled believe the GOP to be intolerant and out of date. That's 10 percent more than believe badly of Democrats.
The study, which was not meant for general circulation, was sponsored by Karl Rove's group and another conservative committee. It questioned 800 registered women voters and in one of its key findings, discovered that Democrats come out 39 percent better than Republicans on the question of which wants to make health care affordable.
The big question, which was not answered, is this: Why in the hell would a woman--any woman--vote for a Republican? Even if she's married to him.
