An ominous truism is a good place to start our discussion on the morning after a historic legal ruling.
"Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it."
Any dude who has ever dated a half-crazy hottie like Miley might understand the accuracy in that statement.
Here's a bit of professional explanation as to how it applies to the American political landscape . . .
"It’s a victory that will almost certainly come at a cost. In Republican circles, a consensus has been forming for weeks that the court’s overturning of a significant — and highly popular — precedent on a deeply felt issue will be a liability for the party in the midterms and beyond, undercutting Republicans to at least some degree with moderates and suburban women."
And so, to honor the Socratic method, we share a couple of relevant questions with readers . . .
Do you REALLY think any woman will vote for disgraced "hot date" Eric Grietens when the abortion debate has captured the attention of women across the nation and ignited a wave of outcry & activism?!?!
On the Kansas side . . .
Will Guv Kelly or Rep. Sharice Davids lose a single supporter as they stand up for "reproductive freedom" as this issue threatens to summon a legion of young, female voters (and their simps) to the ballot box?!?
We'd like to hear diehard Republicans attempt to explain this all away.
However . . . Keep this in mind . . . According to just about every pollster . . .
Female voters are more reliable and motivated than any other segment of the electorate and they've been the primary catalyst behind most social change in the modern era.
This widely celebrated decision may very well have awoken a sleeping giant . . . And most dudes should be smart enough to realize that women HATE anybody messing with their nap time.
