I agreed with Webb. Tailhook was a witch hunt. I don't think this ad will harm him at all, especially among military types. Don't like the GOP using feminist sounding commercials one bit.

Actually, I found the ad was an example of the Republicans trying to out-PC the Democrats. Tailhook may well have been a witchhunt (that expanding the accusations beyond those who were clearly guilty), as I don't believe there were any final findings, and the feminists were quick to overdramatize it. There have certainly been loose women who have had their wished indulged in at naval academies. And what conservative wants women in combat roles?!

If that is 1806, then I will take that over what we have today.

I understand the strategy, but it is a cynical strategy and I don't like it.

Agreed. It could come back to bite Senator Allen later, as well, when he wants to make a proper vote on feminist legislation.

The tailhook part doesn't matter. It's the "horny woman's dream" comment that might stick.

"The Naval Academy is a horny woman's dream"??

Ecch. This goes beyond "feminism". I knew Webb was a macho man but this comment is way improper. There are young women buried in the cemetery of the US Naval Academy. There are funerals almost daily for young women who have died in military service to America.

Depends on where he said it. If he said it to a drinking buddy and it was overheard, its fine with me. If he said it in an official position, then his judgement disqualifies him

The Republicans are sending out some great ads- Ford's "call me " and now this.
On the MSNBC clip the Democrat woman is clearly distressed and the Republican woman is calm and serene which speaks volumes.
MSNBC says that McCain's book blurb is dispensation for Dirty Jim's writings. Desperately trying to move on.

Hard to look at Webb for too long-he's more Botoxed than Kerry.

Ah, so hyprocrisy is A-OK with you. Tell the truth to your drinking buddies as long as you cover your beliefs when you speak to the public.

If the boss says you're a great asset to his company and then goes to a bar and tells his drinking friend you are an idiot, you're OK with having him for a boss.

I know who it was aimed at, that's why I called the advertisement cynical. It may do what it is meant to do. But once you start pushing the "Oh, you are thinking like 1806" as if styles, philosophies and ideologies can only improve over time, you open yourself to attack whenevr someone introduces a new and bad idea.

And psychological differences between men and women are one of many reasons that women shuld not be allowed in military combat. I hope no one thinks of Senator Allen whether women should be in combat roles. After he states no, he will have to give a reason.

The ad should do what it is meant to do. I am not against negative ads, but I don't like Republicans playing that Howard Dean game of pretending we are something we aren't (namely, feminists).

Bad analogy. Here's a better one: Boss tells the me & the rest of the employees at a company meeting to watch ourselves because sexual harrassment will not be tolerated.

Then later, he tells me over a beer that the secretary is a delicious babe.

I don't think that pissant was suggesting covering up beliefs, I think he was talking about proper consuct and decorum.

Private conversation with drinking buddy: "That is a horny woman's dream"

Public speech addressing same issue: "Military training is a time of preparation for our young officers. Co-educational training can often be a distraction to preparing for the mission. (start citing pragnancy rates on destroyers, etc.)"

Everyone knows he means the same thing, but there a proper way to put it in the second setting.

I don't think for one nanosecond that anyone thinks the Republicans are trying to appear as feminists. On the other hand, a Democrat woman who was leaning toward Webb is likely quite pissed off right now, and will not like what she sees on that commercial. All we need to do is dislodge a few thousand Democratic women.

He wrote about the "horny women's dream" in a magazine article.

And here's a little inside baseball: he also lied to the women he wrote about to get them to open up to him about the sex that was going on. They were naive and trusted him.

Webb is a snake. He's another Bill Clinton, an ego in a suit who will do or say anything to get ahead. In other words, a perfect Democrat. I hope Allen cleans his clock.

I agree with you, but my guess is that this isn't going to run on Monday night football. More likely daytime TV (like Oprah) in urban areas. You can really do some fine targeting with cable these days.

It's a debatable strategy (and the debate continues to rage among consultants), but undercutting your opponents base is a really useful tool.

I'm not sure I agree with the Tailhook reference.

However, I'm beginning to see the devastating effect if this guy was elected with his military background.

He would be a huge thorn in Pres. Bush's side.

Please Virginia...DON'T ELECT THIS CREEP!

Actually, it may. It's aimed at moderate women, and could be enough to turn them away from Webb. Never underestimate the Oprahfication of the average soccer mom. "He made me feel bad" may turn off a few men, but not enough for them to vote Dem. On the other hand, that the kind of stuff will be lapped up like Haagen Daz by your average mushy middle female.

And if Allen can successfully separate the women from Webb, he's got it in the bag.

Excerpt from a Nov 2 2005 interview Webb gave to the "San Diego Union Tribune":


Interviewer:
The Scots-Irish voted with the Democrats from Andrew Jackson to Vietnam. Since Vietnam, they've increasingly voted Republican. The Democrats appear not to quite get this. Can the Democrats win another national election or regularly win them unless they somehow reconnect with this culture that you write about?

Webb:

They cannot. This cultural group is very much in play. Except for the Christian Right, which is based in this cultural group, it is not directly aligned with either party. But it has tended to vote Republican more because people like Karl Rove, I think, have understood the emotional buttons. But in terms of tangible socioeconomic benefits, it has not benefited by the presidencies of the last three or four presidents. The problem with the Democrats is that they got away from the Jacksonian message. The Democrats used to be the party where people went when they needed a voice on the national level. You cannot develop a national strategy based on group rights, minority rights, you can't do it. The Democrats need to understand that and get back to what they used to do.

Are you interested in running for political office?

I have been talking to people about running for the Senate next year against George Allen, as a Democrat from Virginia. I have a very good life. I'm not sure that I'm going to do that or not but I have been talking to people. Thinking about it.




He sees himself as the "messiah" who will lead the good red fold back into the democrat fold. God forbid.

Not Democrat women. Democrat women are the base of the Democrat party. They are immovable. This is targeting Republican and independent women who have voted for Allen in the past and are wavering on voting for him this year. Allen is only interested in getting people who have voted for him before to do so again, because that will mean he has won re-election.
