If you're a spokesman for the Republican party, and you tell the press that the Republican party is hindered by an "old boy network" that undervalues women with public ambitions, you should lose your job.
But they can't help themselves. They get in the habit of complaining about the base
with all their buddies here in DC, and then they end up making the same complaints to the press.
Can you really blame Republicans who say, "I want a new party"?
