Well There You Go  
All that torture? Women's fault, of course.

Right-wing women have their own excuse for the revelations about prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib: Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness, which opposes women in the military, explained that the prison atrocities are "exactly what feminists have dreamed of for years." Showing her own opinion of other women, Donnelly announced, "That demeaning photo of a female soldier with an Iraqi man on a leash -- a woman had to have taken that picture."

Columnist Linda Chavez says, "Although the military brass has been loath to admit it, the increased presence of women in the military serving in integrated units has made military discipline more challenging. While some advocates of women in the military have argued that women's presence would improve behavior, in fact, there is much evidence to suggest it has had the opposite effect."

And then there's Ann Coulter, who actually said "...this is lesson, you know, one million and 47 on why women shouldn't be in the military... women are more vicious than men." Well, Ann Coulter knows a lot about being vicious.

Apparently, the problem is all these uppity women undoing Donald Rumsfeld's good work!
