It is evident the "memo" went out from Karl Rove to the right-wing noise machine.
After realizing that attacking Gays and Gay Marriage in the last election cycle, did not bring the desired election result. They also tried to attack latinos with the illegal Immigration "call for arms". It turned out that both republican and democratic demographics split evenly in pro and con on immigration issues.
The gay-haters were too small constituents and the pro-lifers really screwed up with the "Terry Schiavo" case to win an election.
So he picked a much greater constituency: men, frustrated with their inability to provide prosperity to their families on their own, due to the disastrous economic policies practiced since Reagan to destroy trade unions, (who were providing middle class men with good paying jobs) the manufacturing industry, ship jobs oversees to profit the corporate clients. They falsely pit them against Women as the root of all evil.
The new pariah are Women. In the past couple of years they unleashed a war on women, that is growing to exacerbation with the coronation of Nancy Pelosi as the first woman Speaker of the House and Hillary Clinton's bid for presidency.
Men define themselves by what they do for living, as who they are. Well, that is a great reason to divide and conquer. Men feel that their existence is at stake, their jobs that are taken by women.
The writing is on the wall. Valerie Wilson (a carrier CIA agent) is outed to punish a foe of the administration. Carli Fiorina removed from her job as CEO of Hewlett Packard, by a coup organized by men. Martha Stewart, "we gotta teach her a lesson. How does she dare to reach the hights reserved to men!?"
The list goes on and on.
The rottweilers were unleashed; Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Glen Beck, Tucker Carlson, Joe Scarborough, Bill O'Reilly etc ripping women to shreds. Decency is not their device to talk about women. They call Barbara Walters a slut, Rosie O'Donnel a fat pig, Hillary is castrating to men...
At the center of it, behind the curtain is Karl Rove, Lee Attwater's pupil, the ruthless, scruple-less "anything goes" architect, rotten to the core right winger, who's dream to establish a republican reign on all levels of the government for the next 50 years...if there is gonna be anything left of this United States of America
