According to Mediaite, Rep. Blake Farenthold was accused of harassing a female staffer in a lawsuit filed last Friday. On Monday, it emerged that Farenthold is the owner of the URL “www.blow-me.org,” a currently inactive web address.
I avoided the story that led to this apology because I don’t think of rape as something to be snarky about. Lemon made an ass out of himself, was raked over the coals in the social media, and has now apologized, and I think it was sincere.
“Let’s be honest. Does anyone not believe that Congressman Annie Kuster [D-NH] is as ugly as sin? And I hope I haven’t offended sin. …If I may be so bold as to speak the truth, Republican Marilinda Garcia is one of the mot attractive women on the political scene anywhere, not so attractive as to be intimindating [sic], but truly attractive.”
–state Rep. Steve Vaillancourt, who is a Republican
Oh, that will win over women and the youth, who are nothing but marriage-hungry harridans.
Notice that the one thing never shown in this ad is… Florida’s own bat boy, Rick Scott. Methinks these retrograde women would flee from the showroom, screaming.
So Reince, once again I ask: How goes the rebranding?
Yup, once again the boys cannot control their impure thoughts and so the girls gotta quit dressing like sluts, but this story takes the Blue Ribbon at the county fair:
The assistant principal said they had the girls watch two clips from the movie “Pretty Woman” and compared their attire to the main character…who is a prostitute.
It also probably goes without saying (so I’ll say it anyway), anything anyone wears will be sexy to a hormonal boy. I also should add that teenage girls are sexual beings, too, and so when will a school tell a boy what to wear because it is distracting the girls?
And here’s our sermon for today, courtesy of Mark Driscoll the founder of Mars Hill Church, the mega church based in Seattle:
“Ultimately, God created you and it is his penis. You are simply borrowing it for a while,” Driscoll wrote under the name William Wallace II in 2001. “Knowing that His penis would need a home, God created a woman to be your wife and when you marry her and look down you will notice that your wife is shaped differently than you and makes a very nice home.”
“Therefore, if you are single you must remember that your penis is homeless and needs a home,” he continued. “But, though you may believe your hand is shaped like a home, it is not… And, if you look at a man it is quite obvious that what a homeless man does not need is another man without a home.”
So, women only exist as place for men to park their peens? And as for men? You are nothing more than your dick? On loan from God?
The local stories on people (men) escaping this church usually have one common thread: Mr. Driscoll seems to interfere with their relationships with the women in their lives. They have counseling sessions where they try to make men talk about their sexual experiences, they have to approve of who the men are dating, and get permission to marry. If the reports are true, it sounds like a very creepy way to maintain control over a flock of (probably low esteem) men. From what I understand, women are not part of congregation.
Also, too: note that Storyville Coffee Company is wholly owned by Mars Hill Church and it is where they do a lot of their recruiting.
We’ve talked about Mars Church’s Driscoll before. You may recall that he was at the center of gaming the NYTimes Best Seller list earlier this year. Y’all Qaeda is strong in this one.
Somewhere, ancient hate goblin pessary Phyllis Schlafly is smiling.
War on Women, cont.
Holy Mary, Mother of Jeebus, what was Thom Tillis thinking:
Seven percent. A 7 percent pay raise. That’s what we passed this year for North Carolina teachers. That’s simple math. But math is lost on Sen. Hagan. She’s misleading you about me to hide her own partisan record. Kay Hagan votes with President Obama 96 percent of the time. She voted for $7 trillion in debt. That’s math too. And it’s the difference in this election.
Because, you know, the dames don’t unnerstan’ the maths, y’all.
It’s long been the position of this blog that there is a War on Women, and that it is a front in the larger War on Democracy being waged by the Xristian Xrazie Theocrats. Today, Tiger Beat on the Potomac (Thanks Charlie!) got their hands on a poll that sort of shows that Y’all Qaeda is truly loathed by women:
A detailed report commissioned by two major Republican groups — including one backed by Karl Rove — paints a dismal picture for Republicans, concluding female voters view the party as “intolerant,” “lacking in compassion” and “stuck in the past.”
Women are “barely receptive” to Republicans’ policies, and the party does “especially poorly” with women in the Northeast and Midwest, according to an internal Crossroads GPS and American Action Network report obtained by POLITICO…
…The report is blunt about the party’s problems. It says 49 percent of women view Republicans unfavorably, while just 39 percent view Democrats unfavorably.
…Female voters who care about the top four issues — the economy, health care, education and jobs — vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. Most striking, Democrats hold a 35-point advantage with female voters who care about jobs and a 26 percent advantage when asked which party is willing to compromise. House Republicans say jobs and the economy are their top priorities.
Meh. The skirts, whatchya gonna do, boys?
The groups suggest a three-pronged approach to turning around their relationship with women. First, they suggest the GOP “neutralize the Democrats’” attack that Republicans don’t support fairness for women. They suggest Republican lawmakers criticize Democrats for “growing government programs that encourage dependency rather than opportunities to get ahead.” That message tested better than explaining that the GOP supports a number of policies that could help fairness for women.
So the old tactic of baffling the broads with bullshit, eh, and then attacking the Safety Net. Yeah, that’ll work.
Two policies former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor promoted as a way to make inroads with middle-class women and families — charter schools and flexible work schedules — were actually the least popular policies among female voters.
Seriously, they thought that Gender Studies Scholar Iago was on to something? Cutting public education and cutting overtime pay were the way to women’s hearts? Why not just go through the chest, boys?
One bright spot is among married women. Married women without a college degree view Republicans favorably, the polling shows. Married women prefer a Republican over a Democrat, 48 percent to 38 percent.
So… If you keep ‘em dumb and married, you got them locked-in to vote for you! Say, that’s your policy goal anyway, so there’s the win-win solution!
