David Gregory tries to drag Rand Paul into the war on women.

…If the GOP wants to make an issue out of sexual harassment, hone it so that it really is good feminism, based in women’s autonomy and equality.

You know, Mike Huckabee was trying to use the idea of women’s autonomy. He tried to say that Democrats are infantilizing women, but he botched it up badly. I can see that he was trying to be comical, stringing together ideas and using funny words like “Uncle Sugar” to refer to government as a giver of benefits, but he didn’t have good control, and he didn’t anticipate how another audience would be able to use it all against him.

I’m inclined to advise Republicans — if they want my advice — to just shut up about women, but I don’t think they can, and I don’t think the Democrats will let them. I watched Rand Paul very carefully, because I thought he might be close to figuring out how to retreat from the war on women. He’ll be lured back again and again, and he — and other Republicans — need to work out exactly what they want to say on every women’s issue and practice extracting themselves from the question traps. I think Rand Paul has done some of this work, but it’s not nailed down yet.

Update:    Media Covered Up Bill Clinton’s 2008 Affair During Hillary’s Presidential Run

…It was the January 2010 publication of the book Game Change by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann which mentioned the affair that prompted the confession by Huffington Post reporter Mayhill Fowler that she knew about but did not report on the affair in February 2008. (Actually, it was a promotional confession as Fowler was pushing a new e-book of her own, Notes from a Clueless Journalist: Media, Bias and the Great Election of 2008, that was being released that week.)

In 2014 because of the media’s protective non-reporting we do not know whether Bill Clinton carried on his affair throughout his wife’s term as secretary of State, whether the national security implications of the affair were raised during her confirmation and whether Bill Clinton has yet learned to not sexually assault women…
