Dana Perino Solution to Adulterous Politicos: “Elect More Women”

Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino chimed in on the Sanford Argentina scandal on The Corner: (Hat tip to Politco’s Mike Allen’s Playbook.)

While I am not able to explain, I do think I know the answer to all of this: Elect more women. No woman I know has the time for such trysts, nor do I know any who say the desire one. They’re too busy trying to keep all the plates spinning at home, at work, and at the gym to make sure none fall and break.

I love it….. I agree with Perino we need more women in politics. In fact she and I will both be speaking at the RNC’s Women’s Interactive Network Summit later today. The Network is “aimed at mobilizing women at the local level to be grassroots advocates for the Republican Party in advance of upcoming elections this fall and in 2010.” The event will bring together over 280 female leaders from across the nation. It is part of a larger commitment by RNC Chairman Michael Steele and Co-Chairman Jan Larimer to grow the GOP.

Currently women outnumber men in politics. Women have higher registration rates and since 1988 have had a higher rate of turn out at the polls. On average women account for 6% more of the popular vote than men.

Participants of the summit will hear about “candidate recruitment, use of social media as a political tool and effective political communication.”

Some other speakers include Kate O’Bierne, President of the National Review Institute, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA); Liz Cheney, former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs; Dana Perino, former White House Press Secretary for George W. Bush; Linda DiVall, founder of American Viewpoint; and Kellyanne Conway, president of The Polling Company, Inc.

  1. Let’s be specific. Elect more conservative women. Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Debbie Stabenow, etc. have done nothing except undermine the Constitution and weaken the moral fiber of our nation.

  2. Interesting post and thought-provoking too. Wondering aloud if electing more women may actually make a difference in stemming the tide of this type of behavior in political circles?
