Tina Brown Treats Republicans Like Dogs: ‘They Had Their Rabies Shots’

‘They’re not giving these kind of phony uterine attacks ... no “legitimate rape” talk this time’

Tina Brown Treats Republicans Like Dogs: 'They Had Their Rabies Shots' (NewsBusters)

Tart-tongued Tina Brown is at it again. On today's Morning Joe, seeking to explain why Republicans are doing surprisingly well with women voters this year, Brown said: "they had their rabies shots."

Brown was responding to a Politico article reporting that President Obama is under water with women voters, and that this is spilling over into Senate races. In Colorado, for example, a poll shows Republican Cory Gardner leading Dem Mark Udall by nine points among women. And even Alison Lundergan Grimes [who may or may not have voted for Barack Obama], only leads among women by two.  Brown's ugly metaphor was her way of saying that Republicans have had better message discipline and have avoided the kind of "legitimate rape" gaffes that doomed candidates in previous cycles.
