Louis Gohmert went on Glenn Beck’s show and made a monumentally stupid claim that because two female nurses have been infected by Ebola in Texas, this shows that the Democrats have declared war on women. Because, of course, it’s official Democratic party policy and has nothing to do with the fact that the hospital, which has nothing to do with Democrats, didn’t have proper procedures in place to handle an Ebola case.
“You know, it’s a shame that the CDC head, Frieden, is apparently the commander of the Democrats’ new war on women nurses,” Gohmert opined. “Because, goodnight, they set them up, and then they throw them under the bus.”
“The idiot comes out and says that clearly she had violated protocol,” the Texas congressman continued. “At least in football, they have to tell you what you violated.”
In fact, they did have lousy protocols. But what the hell does that have to do with Democrats? Nothing. But this is part of the Republican party’s “I know you are but what am I?” strategy. If you accuse them of a war on women, they accuse you of the same thing, no matter how obviously ridiculous their arguments are to support that accusation.
