GOP Losing "Don't Want My Kids Molested" Moms
Not sure if they're the same as Soccer Moms or Security Moms, though:
After winning over moms in back-to-back elections, Republicans have lost their advantage among married women with children this year.
The Republican Party has seen the support of people like Jeannette Hopkins evaporate.
A 30-year-old married mother of two and a Republican, Hopkins voted for President Bush in 2004. But she says she probably will support the Democrat in her congressional district this fall "because of the way that everything's been handled" with the GOP in charge of Congress and Bush in the White House.
"We're in a really scary place right now," Hopkins said recently. She vented about what she called the gone-on-too-long Iraq war, a sluggish economy, the bungled Hurricane Katrina response and a continuing terrorism threat.
Nobody could have anticipated that fucking up so badly when your party controls all the levers of power would result in voters becoming disgruntled.

Thank you for the thoughtful posts - esp. today on North Korea. The short sightedness, belligerance in the face of competing thoughts and determination to see all issues through the (veil) of "moral clarity" may just bring on his Armageddon.
Your katz make me happy, tho

It's interesting to note the lens they take to this story. There are no questions about what these women think of Bush's policies on women's issues.

One thing about those Republicans: it's not impotent fury.
