Beyond using the ass-beating Democrats took in the mid-term as a metric for success, there is a far more humorous and snide way of determining whether or not this "strategy" was effective.
Enter...the Condom Fairy Princess, Sandra Fluke.
Well...Mzzz. Fluke lost that contest to a fellow Democrat and
Fluke lost to fellow Democrat Ben Allen, a Santa Monica-Malibu school board member, by over 21 points.Subsequently, it seems that the "war on women" adage isn't even resonating with hard core liberals of the California variety. But on a brighter note, maybe with this defeat it might be the last we see of Mzzz. Fluke. Well maybe until Liberals want to recycle identity politics of Christmas past and dust Mzzz. Fluke off for the next go-round.
