The Washington Post met the Huffington Post on Sunday -- in the "Date Lab" feature in The Washington Post Magazine. Huff-Po political reporter Laura Bassett went on a blind date with lawyer Eli Savit.
In a post-article interview with the blog Fishbowl DC, Bassett suggested that her date’s unsuitably non-feminist view of ObamaCare’s birth control mandate fizzled any sexual attraction that may have come about:
Pro-abortion forces in the Democratic party, unable to face the facts, have instead engaged in a head-spinning, mind-numbing campaign to portray political victories for abortion as motivated by anti-woman animus.

The "Hardball" host made that puzzling and arguably insulting comparison on the June 30 program in a segment titled "What's the Matter with Kansas?"
