Received this e-mail today from the Wisconsin Democratic Party.  Apparently, it hurts Governor Scott Walker's (R. WI) feelings when you remind people that he's a foot soldier in the GOP's War On Women:
Scott Walker says “it’s insulting” that Democrats keep calling him out for his radical War on Women.

Well I say it’s women who should be insulted that Walker thinks we can't make our own healthcare choices and that he would force us to undergo unnecessary, invasive transvaginal ultrasounds.

No matter what Scott Walker says we won’t stop fighting back against his attacks on women’s rights. Say you’re with us by adding your name to our petition today and sharing it with your friends:

It’s kind of incredible that Governor Ultrasound is doubling down on his extreme attacks on women and their rights.

What's even more incredible is the fact that so many people here in Wisconsin and across the nation don't know  how radical Scott Walker is when it comes to his positions on birth control and reproductive healthcare. Just last night, Politico reported that, "Walker is conservative but has never been known as a bomb-thrower on social issues."

As governor, Walker has gutted pay equity protections for women, was silent on an act of terrorism at a women’s health clinic, and defunded Planned Parenthood, leaving tens of thousands of women without access to family planning services or life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings. This guy is a Five-Star General in the War on Women.

It's imperative that we spread the word on Scott Walker's real record and his history of attacking women's rights.  You can help right now by adding your name to our petition and sharing it with five friends:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
