Human Events on “Babes of the DNC Calendar”: SEVERE MISOGYNY
It's no coincidence that this incredibly misogynistic "ad" for the "Babes of the DNC" calendar from the conservative Human Events site is running just weeks away from the Midterm Elections. However, what this highly offensive parody misses, is that these types of insults to women also hurt Republican women, whom the author claims "are despised JUST because they are HOT. And let’s face it: liberal women tend to be a bunch of hideous chuds."
It gets worse. Diane Feinstein "smells like a wet dog" and Rachel Maddow "looks like a carny that should be running the ‘Dime Pitch’ or ‘Duck Pond’ game at the traveling fair."

[Diane Feinstein speaking: I had a Code Pink sleep-in at my home in San Francisco]
Her talents include wearing a helmet that looks like real hair and the hobby she excels most at is smelling like wet dog. Finally, there’s Miss December, Alan Colmes
[Interviewer: How many years ago was it you did gay porn?].

Though the 'disclaimer' reads "Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead is purely intentional. If offended, seek treatment for Humorless Liberal Syndrome," Human Events' piece contributes to the extraordinarily hostile media landscape that female politicians must endure during the 2010 midterm elections.
