- Blackburn looks warm and fuzzy in this picture.
Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina and Nikki Haley—only three of the Republican women who did well in this week's elections. The party doesn't seem to have any issues with strong chicks anymore, and conservative women suddenly are coming out of the woodwork. It's not happenstance. According to this LA Times article
, it's a poll-driven phenomenon. Why are we not surprised? The GOP's pollsters have discovered women candidates are better than men at tricking voters into believing they aren't mean and cold-hearted. Rep. Marsha Blackburn has studied her talking points on this one:
"People feel that conservative women are more like them; that they know how to multitask, how to get the homework done in the evening, get the lunches ready for the next morning and have dinner in the oven before they go to work. Voters are looking for people who can get results, who can help the government get better organized. Those are all inherently women's skills."
