Krauthammer’s Take on Huckabee: ‘For God’s Sake, Why Do You Have to Talk about That?’

Conservatives can make a case for “women’s issues” if they avoid incendiary topics like “the psychology of women’s sexuality,” said Charles Krauthammer. “For god’s sake, why do you have to talk about that?” he said on Friday’s Special Report, referring to Mike Huckabee’s remarks earlier in the week about women’s “libido.”

Instead, Krauthammer encouraged Republicans to focus on issues where they would receive widespread approval, such as restrictions on late-term abortions or publicly defending the Little Sisters of the Poor. Otherwise, the “kind of cosmetic change” like selecting Cathy McMorris Rodgers to give the response to the state of the union will have little impact.
