Staggering Statistic Confirms GOP Anti-Woman Bias

Out of 40 Republican candidates running for state-wide office in Montana, only two are women. (Patty Lovaas and Sandy Welch)

For the Democrats, there are eight women out of 22 total candidates. (Monica Lindeen, Pam Bucy, Linda McCulloch, Kim Gillan, Denise Juneau, Heather Margolis, Franke Wilmer, Diane Smith)

Notably, all seven GOP gubernatorial candidates are male, and have all chosen male running mates.

Republicans aren’t very good with math, so I’ll spell it out for them: The GOP clearly either does not believe that females belong in politics, or the Party simply repels women.

    HOLY COW COWGIRL! You made Crooks and Liars! Wow! I’m impressed! Kudos!

    Neil and his trained seal learned a lesson bout messin’ with Montana politics! If you’re boinkin’ mermaids or chasin’ hookers, you BEST scrub your bio first!

  2. “The GOP clearly either does not believe that females belong in politics, or the Party simply repels women.” Actually, I do not think this is an either/or situation. The lack of enthusiasm for women in politics probably has the effect of repelling women.

  3. I think Democrats are very enthusiastic about women in politics. Female candidates are actively recruited and trained and that shows in the numbers (like, the MT GOP platform uses the word woman/women ONE time). Democratic policies also inspire the enthusiastic support of female voters. While not scientific evidence, women watching the St Patrick’s Day parade in Butte were overwhelmingly supportive of our Democrat contingent’s lack of mandatory probing policy.

    Same thing can be seen if you look at the 14 candidates for Public Service Commission. https://app.mt.gov/cgi-bin/filing/index.cgi?ACTION=LIST_NON_LEG

    Nine Republicans, zero women. Zero.

    Five Democrats, two women.

  5. Dont worry Ladies, the Democrats have you back!

    • Amen. We Democrats are proud to have women running for office. And allow me to say we’re lucky to have such a brilliant, hard-working group of candidates.

  6. You liberals try to put a spin on everything. You keep trying to say that the republican groups are made up of racists and radicals. Hare you done any scientific studies to prove this? I doubt it, you are all to brain washed or brain dead to do your homework. This starts at the top with the President and trickles all the way down to the local level. I should send you a picture of Kim Gillan sleeping through a committee meeting and later she had the nerve to say that the republican moderating the meeting didn’t know what he was doing. How did she know, she was sleeping! Is this one of the women you are so proud of? I know many women who hold positions within the local republican parties and probably would run for a higher office if they weren’t raising their families. Democratic women don’t have to worry about this as they just abort their babies. You democrats are a very sad bunch who are led around like sheep and blame everything on someone else. Why don’t you look to being part of the solution and not just the problem.

    A republican who is neither a racist or a radical,

      JACOB! JACOB! JACOB! When were you born again, dude? Date and time. You see, Jake, you’ve relinquish your thought process to faith, and it shows. It shows that you are simply a dumbass. Sorry to be so blunt.

    • So you think “Democratic women don’t have to worry about this as they just abort their babies”

      You are not worth talking to!

      • Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 8:12 PM at 8:12 PM |

        The very reason Most republicans are worth talking too is they don’t know squat about the world around them!

        Reality is complicated and messy…Ideologies get rid of the messiness and impose a simpler solution. So, it may not be surprising that people with less cognitive capacity will be attracted to simplifying ideologies.”-Brian Nosek, University of Virginia

        Researchers at the Canadian Brock University confirm what past studies have implied; that a society with an overall low intelligence results in the rise of simplistic religio-fascist idealism!

        “…research has revealed that individuals who more strongly endorse social conservatism have greater cognitive rigidity, less cognitive flexibility and lower integrative complexity [complicated way of saying they are mentally retarded!]. Socially conservative individuals also perform less well than liberals on standardized ability tests.”-Gordon Hodson, lead researcher

        The Canadian researchers concluded that right wing extremism is the result of low intelligence, not just bad economies.

    • Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 8:23 PM at 8:23 PM |

      A study at University College London in the UK has found that conservatives’ brains have larger amygdalas than the brains of liberals. Amygdalas are responsible for fear and other “primitive” emotions. At the same time, conservatives’ brains were also found to have a smaller anterior cingulate — the part of the brain responsible for courage and optimism.

      56% of scientists are liberal and this can be in the classical sense. Only 2% are conservative. 42% are neither and this is the actuality. Pew Center research. I guess science is to hard for Conservatives as a general rule!

    • “You liberals try to put a spin on everything….Democratic women don’t have to worry about this as they just abort their babies. You democrats are a very sad bunch who are led around like sheep and blame everything on someone else.”

      “Hare you done any scientific studies to prove this? I doubt it, you are all to brain washed or brain dead to do your homework.
      ——
      So lets see those scientific studies to prove what you say about 1)Democratic women not having babies, but aborting them all 2) that Democrats are brain washed or brain dead or 3) led around like sheep or 4)blame everything on someone else 5) don’t do their homework and 6) liberals try to put a spin on everything..

      Whew. That’s a lot of accusations to hurl out there with no support. Let’s see you give it your best shot. Otherwise, where do you get off saying liberals can’t back it up? Someone’s already posted a couple of studies and there are more. It would probably be over your head to comprehend it, though.

  7. Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 5:39 PM at 5:39 PM |

    Nope. Not at all. No war on women by the Pubbies and Teatards. It’s all in your minds, RIGHT, Fr. Mooron and Skinnerflute?

  8. Well Larry, if you want to start the name calling I can do it with the best but I won’t unless you keep it up.

    You’ve got a Democratic Governor giving land to Feds, you want the wolves to overtake the ranches to force them out of business so their land can be given to the Feds. In the end, we are all going to regret what has happened to us, our start and our country and the Czar Obama will continue to erode our rights and freedom and only if you are a high ranking official with you have anything worth living for. Just look to what Russia was under communist rule. You bleeding heart liberals are just the sheep he needs to help carry out his plans.

    KMRA,

    • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:25 PM at 6:25 PM |

      No, NOT the namecalling! No offense, Jake, but WHAT was your highest grade level achieved, dude? GED? Maybe. Dude, you’re on the wrong site. You want the MORON site! But since your here, EXPLAIN this is some detail! You’re an idiot, Jake.

      “Just look to what Russia was under communist rule.”

      Let’s see your command of history, little fella. Go all history channel on us, moron!

    • Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 8:05 PM at 8:05 PM |

      Dear Jacob, do you think we were a state before the constitution? Because we were’nt! Do you think we were a state before the federal government granted us a statehood? You Would be wrong!

      You see Jacob we were a federal Property first! Thomas Jefferson bought Montana, as part of the Louisiana Purchase from the French. the Government has always owned this state first Buddy! The Government is the only giver of state rights.

      Secondly, the GOP has lied to you! Obama is certified to be the president of the United States. He was Born in the United States, unlike Senator McCain who was not! Obama is a Christan not a Muslim.

      Do you think the Armed force Generals would follow someone who is not Qualified to be president? The very people who swear an Allegiance to Country first, would drop that Oath? Do you think That all the admirals and Generals in this nation are part of a great conspiracy?????

      How Crackers do you have to be… to believe that crap Fox and Friends spews!

      Russia hasn’t dropped communism, it has only open up its business interests to capitalism. Communists can vote too, its just that their votes still don’t count for much!

      Like Larry asked you before little Fella, what was your highest grade!

  9. Larry,

    Typical democrat, just use name calling and silly ass comments to deflect from the real issues. Where were you born? California? Oregon? Let’s just legalize marijuana so you people will be to stoned to give a crap about anything but who is going to give you more free dope. Do you actually work for a living or do you have one of those handout jobs like Obama had or are you just plain on the dole like so many other liberals.

    BIOYA,

    Jacob B.

    • who would jesus etch-a-sketch?

    • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:32 PM at 6:32 PM |

      Um, Jakey, I actually DID ask you some real questions, dufus! But like a good little Teatard, you ran and hid! Is it really that hard to state for the public record your highest grade level achieved? For you see, NO ONE on this site except YOU is reluctant to do so. You see, the problem is that you appear to be an uneducated idiotic dolt. Or in other words, a typical Teatard.

      Now, that is NOT namecalling, little guy. It’s called a fact! Easy enough to prove me wrong.

      • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:41 PM at 6:41 PM |

        p.s. It’s called accountability, cupcake. It’s a word that you Teatards and Pubbies like use all the time. What it means in this context is that you made some outrageous claims. And I asked you to be accountable by PROVING your claims.

        But you can’t because you’re simply a moron with a few Blimpaugh/Beck talking points. You’re a Beckerhead, and it shows.

        Now, run along and tell your friends that you posted on this site and survived. Or stay and get your ignernt ass handed to you. No one will think the less of you for doing the smart thing and fleeing, little dude.

  10. Blow it out your fat ass Larold, if you want to continue this low life form of conversation I will now get down it the gutter with you. But first to answer one of your questons, I am an recently retired degreed I.T. (Information Technology, for dipshits like you) professional who worked for 40 years in the business. I am just tired of the democrats trying to tax the shit out of me and others like me. I would like to live in peace but Obama and his cronies seem bound and determined to take away everything I worked for and force me to try and get into the workforce so I can afford health insurance and the additional taxes he’ll put on my pension and health insurance so deadbeats can continue to lie around and live off of the rest of us. Maybe, you fall into that category Larold.

    If you want to continue the name calling just keep it up as I grew up in a poor neighborhood and sling crap with the best of them you low-life piece of dung.

    FYATHYRIN,

    Jacob B.

    P.S. I may not be a big fat democrat but I know from an old boxing promoter that the bigger they are the harder they fall.

    • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:47 PM at 6:47 PM |

      Larold! BravO, cupcake! Low life piece of dung! Wow! You ARE good! Now, you’ve got a degree in IT? Never heard of that. Where’d you go to school, jakey? Information technology. Is that kinda like a sanitation engineer??

      Where you from, cupcake? Obvious it ain’t Montana!

      • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:48 PM at 6:48 PM |

        Cupcake, still WAITING for you to explain your Russia comments. Do tell, just WHAT do you know about Russian history? Not much I’m guessin’.

      • Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 8:56 PM at 8:56 PM |

        Watch out Larry! Hes made a run for the gutter, for some ankle-biting prose. Nevermind! You’ll be all right! I see you have your wading boots on with the snake bite protectors!

        The little feller ain’t got a shot to wound you anyway! Your way to fast for him!

    • Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 8:26 PM at 8:26 PM |

      Wow a guy that work with science everyday , and is still not as smart as a cereal Box. What a liar???????

  11. Larold,

    You have now convinced to stay and give you blowhards and mouth breathers more crap on a regular basis. I don’t scare that easy but I bet you fartheads do. Just keep spewing Larold and I’ll keep throwing your crap back in your ugly mutt. Now why don’t you go and have a little pow wow with your friends and let them know just how big a man you are. Big Ass that is.

    • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:50 PM at 6:50 PM |

      OUCH! You wound too deep, Joke! Jokeob B. You’re too funny. I’m STILL waiting for your lecture on the situation in Russia! What? You don’t know shitski about that? You’re just spouting talking points? Yep. That’s what I figured.

    • Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 8:30 PM at 8:30 PM |

      Damn a living breathing advertisement of tea party Stupidity, is gonna hang out here so we all know what one writes like! How much wickedly good fun are we gonna be in for?

  12. Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 6:56 PM at 6:56 PM |

    p.s. Jokeob, I really must ask one more time, cupcake. Just WHO are the “deadbeats” that you refer to? Is that so hard? To answer one little question? Apparently so. Pleas LIST in detail the deadbeats that you speak of? Or do you just prefer namecalling? You see, Jokeob, YOU showed up to debate. Well, DEBATE! Provide some argument! WHO are the deadbeats, dink?

  13. Larry, you a one big a-hole. You started the name calling from the beginning but offer up nothing of any nature or discussion on Obama and Schweitzer antics or Kim Killam’s sleeping through legislative committee meetings. You just went right into the name calling and derogatory comments. You don’t want to debate as you believe you already know it all. Well good for you Larry and the rest of you ecologists. You live in the city and don’t have a clue as to what life is like in the rural areas. We will continue to win the wolf battle and other eco fights that come our way.

    Since you know it all I’ll just stick to pissing you off on a regular basis and I’ll try to do it around meal time to ruin your appetite for your veggies.

    Piss Off you frigging left footer!

  14. Jacob has drank so much Fox/Limbaugh Kool-aid he does not know what century he’s in or State

  15. Lynn when did you pull you head out of your butt! How long do think you will be able to keep it out this time.

    Also, you democrats are the ones that invented the kool-aid. Just look at that last Presidential election.

    I can keep throwing your crap back at you as long as you want. My only hope is this blog keeps you to busy to do any real harm to this state and country.

    I’m in the once great state of Montana but you liberals are destroying it like all the other states you came from.

  16. You were born here?

  17. I heard that most of you folks were just a bunch of Mike H butt kissers so you don’t deserve the time of day. You don’t debate you just spew liberal rhetoric and try to pick verbal fights and also look for someone to make a mistake and let out something that could possibly help you. I won’t play that silly ass game with you washed up retreads. Find another sucker who might be stupid enough to give something up.

    FYAATHYRIN

    P.S. Please wake up Kim Killan and let her know she’s in a campaign.

    P.S.S. Larry, I’m surprised you have time for this boldge, how does Mike get along without you up his behind?

    • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 10:35 PM at 10:35 PM |

      You BETTER run, Cupcake!

      Jokeob admits that he is retired, has a pension, and health insurance, etc. WELL, cupcake….

      If you’ve got a pension, THANK a union, THANK a Dem!

      If you’ve got health insurance, THANK a union, THANK a Dem!

      If you stayed at that job for forty years, THANK a union, THANK a Dem!

      If you worked a forty hour week, THANK a union, THANK a Dem!

      If you’ve got social security, THANK a union, THANK a Dem!

      If you were able to retire, THANK a union, THANK a Dem!

      You SEE you fatassed, ignernt, inbred, , ungrateful, Beckerhead, Ditto head, Limpaugh lickin’, piece of ungrateful shit, you don’t know SHIT! Many, many people FOUGHT for a reetard/Teatard like you, and you don’t even know it!

      Get outta here, cupcake. You’re an embarrassment to inbreds everywhere!

      Here’s some Gumpian advice that suits you well. RUN, cupcake, RUN!

  18. Backwoods Monty | March 21, 2012 9:11 PM at 9:11 PM |

    Yep this guy must of been Part of the percentage that did not graduate high school, even my 4 year old knows how to continue a tread….Mr IT Bwah hahahahahahahahaha.

    Little feller just who the hell is Mike H? I dont know him!

    • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 21, 2012 10:44 PM at 10:44 PM |

      Mike H.? I dunno. But I see that Cupcake has LEFT the building!

      • Since he wanted to go backwards.. I posted the Link about Mansfield..maybe Cupcake melted or imploded….

        • Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers | March 22, 2012 10:10 AM at 10:10 AM |

          Like ALL Teatards, cupcake is like george bush. Ann Richards said that “bush was born on third and thought he’d hit a triple”! Well, Jakeoff B. Jerkob was BORN enjoying all the things that others had fought and bled for and thought HE somehow was responsible! He wasn’t.

          This pathetic worm thinks that labor victories just happened! And social victories! And social security! etc. Outta thin air! And the goodness of Pubbie hearts!

          Yes, he’s a complete dumbass. But so are ALL the Teatards! (and now, it’s been proven scientifically too through studies) THAT’S why I asked him to explain a bit of the supposed history he quoted.

          These folks have NO concept of history at all, especially LABOR history and the labor wars. Yes, they were real wars! Industry declared war on workers, and used militias, thugs, and the national guard to conduct it. But labor fought back! And THAT is why cupcake enjoys some of the good life that he thinks he somehow created.

          You see, open up your daily rag. You’ll see the news page, the sports page, and the business page. WHERE THE HELL IS THE UNION PAGE? OR THE LABOR PAGE! OR THE POOR PEOPLES PAGE!

          The deck is stacked. That’s why cupcake so easily exposes his ignorance. He’s been brainwashed. And there’s an army of racists, reetards, and morons out there fighting against their own self-interests on behalf of the corporate fascists. And that’s real sad.

  19. First time visiting this site. I won’t be back reading the post on here shows there’s evil people on the left and the right ta ta.
