CNN Crossfire co-host S.E. Cupp was seemingly agog on Friday that people took offense to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's (R) remarks regarding "Uncle Sugar" and womens' libidos.

And I can't believe anybody would hear Huckabee speak without a heavy degree of skepticism. It is clear that the Republican brains have turned to mush - all the pages are stuck together.

Read the article. "S E Cupp is really interesting", said no one ever. Of course she knows that Huckabee was intentionally insulting women, but there is that urge to defend even the worst of the party of bland, boring and nastiness.

Democratic treatment toward women by the Republicans? This is the biggest joke ever.

Thanks for sharing Carrie.
In my opinion Huckabee was insulting women with the Uncle Sugar comments.

Misogynistic, patriarchal, need I say Republican treatment of women is all about demonizing us and our libidos - all of which is pure projection. Look, I'm not saying women don't have libidos, we do, but the "ungovernable libido" is a purely male phenomenon. Birth control for women has never been about libido. It is and has been about women being able to be available to men, and that has been about not getting beaten up and not getting kicked out or replaced. Which is about security (and protecting one's children), not libido. I don't even really care whether it is insulting or not. What it unquestionably is, is enslaving. Margaret Sanger's take on why she was working for birth control was insulting certainly. But at least her actions were liberating.

O, please Ms Cupp, how insulting to your viewers can you get of you want them to believe that this is not a Republican view, including your own. Please name me the Democrat or the document where Huckabee QUOTED from “they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of government.”

Are we for one moment to believe that this is the way Democrats talk about women? Ms Cupp, you put all of women to shame by defending this guy. Go and sit in the corner with your dunce hat on, together with all the others.

First of all, I don't think there is necessarily a "war on Women" but I do agree totally that Republicans value the unborn first, then males and then woman.

Of course, many woman are able to afford to pay for birth control. ANd mopst men should also pay for birth control (and disease control- i.e. condom). Many women, rely on there insurance to pay for their prescriptions, just as men do. So of course, insurance should pay for the pill just as it pays for that little blue pill.

I might understand it better (though still disagree) if viagra was not allowed via health insuarnce. Why can't those on the right see that hypocrisy?
