I was very offended that Senator Harkin would say that. I think it’s unfortunate that he and many of their party believe that you can’t be a real woman if you’re conservative and you’re female. I believe that if my name would have been John Ernst, attached to my resume, Senator Harkin would not have said those thing.
The full segment including Harkin’s statement is embedded below.
The real irony of course is that the Democrats, inventors of the “war on women,” would go utterly ballistic of a comment like this were made about a females candidate running on their own ticket. Then again, the war on women and the race card, which the left has been playing like it’s going out of style in this election season, are cynical props meant to attract low-information voters to the polls.
