Oh, there's that "Choice" word again. It's so very sticky with this current crop of Republican candidates and pundits. Gosh, the very IDEA that women can think for themselves and don't want assumptions made about them because of their sex...and the presumption that they can make informed choices about the feasibility of staying home with their kids if they so choose.
Except if you're poor, that's not really a choice at all. Even Mitt Romney agrees with this point of view, for welfare recipients, just this past January...and...cue the Clip of Hypocrisy du jour. Swear to God, do these people not realize that video EXISTS of every public event at which they have spoken?

Douchebags abound

On my Facebook wal, I have a link to an article in the on-line New Yorker about how this issue is used as a political weapon to divide women into camps so that we don't vote as a bloc.

This issue comes up every election cycle. Robin is probably right about the divide and conquer rule. I forget who said it but the quote is "there is nothing more dangerous than an organized woman." Imagine if we women did organize and did vote as a bloc. The world as we know it would come to an end. In the best possible way!
