The Alison Lundergan Grimes campaign's war on women

Just because most Republicans and conservatives believe it's wrong to kill babies, they have been pegged by the American Left and their cheerleaders in the mainstream media as waging a "war on women."

That might have some semblance of truth to it if conservatives opposed only the aborting of female babies and not male babies, but since they oppose killing of babies of both sexes, it's absurd to claim that conservatives hate women and are against them.

The left is busy trying to tarnish Mitch McConnell because his campaigns have been financially supported by those associated with the company that was victim of the accidental chemical spill in West Virginia. Do they really want to go there? Because if they do, they invalidate all their attempts to appeal to female voters in the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky.

Alison Lundergan Grimes, the presumptive Democrat nominee for the senate seat, has been trying to position herself as the candidate best able to cater to so-called women's issues. And not just because of her genitalia, either. She's been busy speaking to female-dominated groups and reciting that tired old line about the GOP's "war on women."

That line didn't make sense when the Democrats used it against Mitt Romney just because he admitted to recruiting qualified women to fill positions in his administration when he was governor of Massachusetts, and it doesn't make sense now, especially considering from where Lundergan Grimes is getting much of her support.

One of her biggest boosters in Kentucky is Greg Stumbo, current Kentucky house speaker and former attorney general. It really shouldn't be necessary to remind Kentucky voters of his history, but we'll do so anyway.

It's well-known in Kentucky political circles that Stumbo fathered a child out of wedlock years ago with a woman other than his wife. For years he failed to pay child support to the mother of his child. When she finally decided to claim child support, Stumbo filed a lawsuit against her for harassment, claiming she was only seeking child support to damage him politically.

(Note to Stumbo: The only liberating that will happen in Kentucky is when the Republicans take over the Kentucky House of Representatives and liberate this state from the control of you and your party. We would have said "leadership" but you and the Democrats are about as far away from being leaders as Peyton Manning was from being a Super Bowl winner).

If you listen to Lundergan Grimes' corrupt father, Jerry, you'll constantly hear him talk about how he so close to President Bill Clinton and how Clinton will come to Kentucky to campaign for Grimes once the primary is out of the way and his daughter is running against either McConnell or Matt Bevin.

Do we really need to go down the Clinton path again? The man who bit the lip of one of his non-consenting sexual partners and then told her to put some ice on it and the swelling would go down? The man who exposed himself to a low-level state employee when he was governor of Arkansas and told her to kiss it, then when she didn't give him oral sex she was retaliated against at work? The man who had a sexual relationship with an intern in the White House then lied about it during testimony in a sexual harassment lawsuit? Paula Jones? Monica Lewinsky? Gennifer Flowers? Kathleen Willey? Juanita Broaddrick?

To us, it sounds like Lundergan Grimes' strongest supporters are the ones waging a war on women. Her campaign may wish to rethink soliciting the blessing of such female-hostile Democrats like Stumbo and Clinton if they want her to be taken seriously as being the leading candidate on women's issues. She can't claim to be a pro-female politician if the likes of Stumbo and Clinton are cheering her on.
