That's because the media, academics, and the entertainment industry have their backs. If Republican’s acted the way they do they'd label them Nazi's and say they are trying to kill grandma or babies. Look at the way they labeled Romney as anti-woman.
What's required is a viciously vigorous response and putdown of each and every criticism and false accusation these jerks make. Liberals were able, through their popularization of the term ‘McCarthyism’, to put all concerns about communist/socialist influence in a fluff/dismissive category. We need to label all of their ‘Republicans are coming after women and grandma's social security’ crap the same way, so that people automatically dismiss it out of hand. This can be done.

Right, this basically started with Bush I.
‘They’ started the starve the children, grandparents eating dog food etc and the ONLY response - after much probing and saying GET off your arse and defend yourself - did the administration say
“The American people are to intelligent to believe this trash and I refuse to dignify it”.
They didn’t realize that enough American people DID believe this garbage because they were getting it force fed to them on the evening news and late night talk shows....also the daytime ‘loser’ shows.
AND we never really picked up on anything - a result being GORE lost by a whisker and Kerry was way to close - granted ‘we’ didn’t have a strong candidate BUT when the R’s...read the 3 women R’s running for Senate in 2010 were abandoned by the ‘party’, allowing Reid to maintain control, a lying sac ‘o $hiite wins in CT (MA this year) and a long time loser in Delaware.
Rove virtually openly campaigned against these women, if not by insult etc, by neglecting to say anything...
In retrospect, Palin could have handled her situation a little more gracefully - 1st, by ‘setting a precedent’ and stepping down as Governor to enable her to campaign full time, then when the VEEP didn’t pan out, she should have run for Senator in Alaska - unless of course she didn’t really ‘feel the love’ of enough constituents to win a supposedly winnable race.
