Yes ... as much as the Republicans can accuse Democrats of creating a nanny state with their social welfare policies, as Dorian Warren of Columbia University points out in the clip below, the Republicans are into Big Daddy Politics - from Daddy issues to playing Big Daddy to all girls and women in the United States, especially regarding the rights they have over their own reproduction issues and their bodies.
Hammer, meet nail.
(Pssst ... take a gander at Willard's daddy, talking about war, civil rights and the poor below). As well as the ensuing conversation about the Republicans' desire to be a daddy to us poor, misguided, sexually-dangerous and irresponsible women.
At the seven-minute mark, Dorian Warren puts into words something I've been screaming for the past two years - that what we're seeing today in the Republican Party is the result of a forty-year propaganda campaign.
