The Republican Party is suffering from some serious lady troubles, and they’re not the kind that, as Stephen Colbert put it on Thursday’s “The Colbert Report,” can “be solved with a quarantine tent.”
According to an ABC/Washington Post poll, 63 percent of women have an “unfavorable” view of the GOP.
The damage is partly attributable to statements that certain Republicans such Rep. Todd Akin made about rape that women found insensitive or clueless. However, Colbert was still puzzled.
“I don’t get it,” Colbert said. “Over 90 percent of congressional Republicans are dudes. Ladies, it’s a sausage fest.”
