Countering Leftist Hysterics

George Will on GOP response.

George Will: “Robert Griffin, now 90, who rose to be second in the Republican U.S. Senate leadership, was defeated in 1978. Since then, only one Michigan Republican, Spencer Abraham in 1994, has been elected to the Senate and for only one term. Evidence that former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land might end this GOP drought is that Democrats are attacking her for opposing ‘preventive health care.’ … Land represents Republicans’ most effective response to Democrats’ hyperventilating about the ‘war on women’ – female candidates. It will be amusing to see such rhetoric tried in Iowa, where Joni Ernst, a lieutenant colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard who served in Iraq, is seeking the Republican Senate nomination. She says in an ad: ‘I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm. So when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.’ She rides a Harley and in a recent Des Moines Register column she said, ‘Those who know me well know that I carry a black purse everywhere I go. What many people don’t know is what’s inside: a Smith and Wesson 9 mm and my concealed carry permit.’”
