Biden vs. Motherhood

I am, needless to say, with Biden on this one. You've probably heard me rant about how militant irrational groups of "moms" are a disastrous influence on politics -- on autism, crime, education, drinking, and goodness knows what else. Anyway, this is what Biden has to say, via Yglesias:
I would note parenthetically that we no longer have soccer moms in San Diego or Wilmington or Washington or Seattle, we have security moms. An abnormally high percentage of women between the ages of 25 and 40 with children, believe that they are likely to be a victim of a terrorist attack, which is not accurate but close to 40% believe that. Which has another destabilizing effect on us as a country.

So it does.
