Quote of the Day: To reach female voters, GOP needs to “bring it down to a woman’s level”

At a recent panel put on by the Republican Study Committee, the House’s conservative caucus, conservative women discussed how the GOP can improve their messaging to female voters. Here’s the advice North Carolina Rep. Renee Ellmers offered:

Men do tend to talk about things on a much higher level. Many of my male colleagues, when they go to the House floor, you know, they’ve got some pie chart or graph behind them and they’re talking about trillions of dollars and how, you know, the debt is awful and, you know, we all agree with that … we need our male colleagues to understand that if you can bring it down to a woman’s level and what everything ...

Breitbart News ad features sexist image of Nancy Pelosi as Miley Cyrus

This has got to be a new low, even for the conservative media.

Breitbart News launched its California political coverage today with an ad campaign featuring some street art-style images, including this one of Nancy Pelosi in a Miley Cyrus-esque pose, as well as a confusing one about about Silicon Valley Girls starring Mark Zuckerburg with topless breasts (seriously, can someone explain?). As The Wire notes, the ads are all part of Breitbart’s attempt to cultivate an image of the right wing as cool and edgy. “But the new ads don’t seem dangerous and new; instead they play on old sexist tropes.”
