Quote of the Morning

“She’s forgetting about the thousands of women who want an informed choice, who want the opportunity to get a free ultrasound, which they can get not from Planned Parenthood, but from a lot of these pregnancy centers.” Jim DeMint on mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds

Good Lord. Republicans need to STFU about abortion, ultrasounds and state-mandated rape.

    Hey Republican guys, how about if we give you a FREE orange traffic cone shoved up your ass? A lot of you would jump at the chance, right? IT’S FREE!!!”

    Is it possible for DeMint to have become an even bigger douchenozzle since leaving Congress?

    • Nefercat

      Apparently, yes.

  • Zen Diesel

    Republicans are all about uteruses, vaginal probes, masterbating fetuses, abstinence, preventing birth control, and not jobs, jobs, jobs…..

      But it’s helpful, isn’t it? The more they spew this utter misogynistic bullshit of theirs, the more they drive voters away from the Republican party. See Todd Aikin and Richard Moordock as examples.

    Was it here that I read that Pat Buchanan rant about how the browns are overrunning America? I read that thing and I said to myself, This guy just DOES NOT see minorities and immigrants as human beings. You simply couldn’t talk like that about them if you considered them PEOPLE like yourself — people who maybe have different habits and goals than you because they have different life experiences, but if you had those life experiences, you’d probably have similar habits and goals. Nope, he doesn’t see it that way at all. Aliens! “Other”! Keep ‘em down!

    Anyway, I’m getting very much the same vibe when Republicans start talking about women. I’m seriously starting to question whether they see women as people at all. You simply couldn’t talk that way about rape and abortion and forced ultrasounds if you considered women to be PEOPLE — people with rights, and with brains, who are quite capable of making their own decisions and choosing their own paths, thank you. Nope — women are apparently uppity subhumans who need to be regulated. Aliens! “Other”! Keep ‘em down!

    Free ultrasound? Holy cow, makes me wish I was a woman with an unwanted pregnancy. Dammit, they get all the cool stuff!

      It’s like those Valtrex commercials showing people canoeing, flying kites on the beach, and generally living more active, fun lives then people who don’t have genital herpes. Aren’t you jealous?

        Maybe they will start mandating free colonoscopies with scripts for Viagra!
