You’ve no doubt heard that Republicans are supposedly engaged in some kind of “war on women” because they believe in the sanctity of life, aren’t interested in providing free birth control as an entitlement, or aren’t willing to see taxpayer dollars used to fund abortions.

A fawning Washington Post article today “Arlington Takes On Global Warming” trumpets Arlington County’s headlong rush into spending taxpayer dollars on a variety of initiatives motivated by a recent documentary by the self-proclaimed father of the internet, Al Gore.
