Phrased it poorly??? What he really, really said is, "Pass this jobs bill or women will get hurt."

Sometimes those cause and effect issues are not pretty or easy.

He could have gone the Republican route and pointed out the rise in child abuse that is also associated with that same rise in unemployment. That whole "for the children" thing usually works for the right.

Facts? Are there nationwide studies that show unemployed men were used as a study group to prove Harry's claim?

Harry is a male version of a Bimbo.

You got distracted by his comment into debating the relationship between unemployment and domestic violence. Reid, 1, McBare 0.

You have to listen to dear Harry with your third ear. This is the man who said Capital Hill visitors "smell" and the Iraq war "is lost."

By that measure, Nancy Pelosi is rightwing.

Pelosi's pork: A 'poor children's' bill indeed - Sunday, Aug. 19, 2007
The Center for National Policy

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. ... Americans deserve better.”
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
