This is like the non-apology apology, methinks: GOP men tutored in running against women. It’s from Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie), so be forewarned!
Anyway, the gist of it is that like Mars, the GOP needs women. And though their policies might be anti-woman (well, anti- everyone except old white guys), they want to make sure that there are no more Akins and Mourdocks, who say out loud what Wingnuttia’s policies and beliefs really are (if you got pregnant from a rape, it means it was consensual not a legitimate rape [Akin], and rape babies are a gift from God [Mourdock] ).
The problem isn’t the wording, boys. The problem is Republicanism itself as it is composed by today’s misogynists and theocrats who still are blaming women for Original Sin.
Ted Cruz’s Dad Calls US a “Christian Nation,” Says Obama Should Go “Back to Kenya”
The whole piece is full of rich material, and it does explain where the high-pitched bitch squealer gets some of his nuttier ideas, and completely explains his sense of smug superiority. He was obviously raised in a bubble by a certifiable theocrat.
Watch the videos if you can; I couldn’t get very far.
Dr. Chaps: Demon Hunter is running for elected office.
Let’s see if we can list just a few of his qualifications, shall we?
- successfully performed an exorcism on a lesbian soldier
- tried to exorcise demonic spirits from The Kenyan Usurper
- claims that Sweet Baby Jeebus wants his followers to sell their clothes and buy a gun
- The Affordable Care Act causes cancer
- convicted of disobeying direct orders not to attend political events in uniform. (Klingenschmitt had participated March 30, 2006, in a rally outside the White House in his dress uniform alongside former Alabama chief justice Roy S. Moore to protest the Navy policy on prayer)
The man is totally overqualified to be a Member of Congress.
On Saturday the saddest woman in North America, Anita Perry (wife of Theocrat-Secessionist nitwit Texas Gov. Rick Perry who does not believe in abortions even in cases of rape, incest or where childbirth threatens the life of the mother) voiced her support for a woman’s right to choose.
Today, Rick tells us that she misspoke:
“From time to time we’ll stick the wrong word in the wrong place, and you pounce upon it.”
Anita Perry was nowhere to be seen, as there must have been a kitchen someplace where she is hog-tied to the range.
…the American Taliban will tell you that women have a way of shutting that whole thing down:
(Reuters) – A conservative Saudi Arabian cleric has said women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and bearing children with clinical problems, countering activists who are trying to end the Islamic kingdom’s male-only driving rules.
Rev. Fishsticks proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that climate change cannot be man-made, and tells us it is dumb, dumb, dumb to think that it could be.
- GOP to Xristian Xrazies: Drop Dead - The Koch Brothers, er, FreedomWorks commissioned a national survey of registered voters last month that finds 78 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents self-identify as fiscally conservative and socially moderate. (Tiger Beat on the Potomac – thanks Charlie!)
- Hey guys, remember when former GOP Preznintial candidate Crazy Unkka Pat said that gay people in SF wear special rings to cut people’s hands and give them HIV/AIDS? And his network CBN literally scrubbed all mention of it off of their website and into the Memory Hole? And then they threatened law suits if anyone played that clip? Guess what? You can play the clip again, they lost!

Comics John Fugelsang and Jamie Kilstein attempt to hash out once and for all the question of whether there is a God or not.
I think everyone was amazed when the crazeee state of North Carolina’s Gov. Pat McCrory offered chocolate chip cookies to women protesters outside his mansio. The women (and men) gathered were protesting against SB 353, a bill restricting abortion that McCrory signed into law on Monday.
“McCrory was flanked by four security guards when he passed off the treats to Chapel Hill resident Jamie Sohn, who says he told her, “These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you.” Protesters responded by slipping a note under the mansion’s gate: “We want women’s health care, not cookies.” Was it a peace offering? A suggestion that the protesters looked hungry? A joke about women baking? Voodoo? Everyone’s a little confused. McCrory has denied protesters’ requests to meet with him about the law.”
I hope that after he offered to serve them his cookies, they offered to serve him his nuts.
In the late hours Friday night, the Texas legislature passed HB2, the bill that effectively closes most abortion clinics in the state and severely limits the right and access to safe, legal abortion for Texas women. The vote was almost exclusively along party lines.
More than 2000 demonstrator protested the bill, and the state troopers forcibly removed 6 people from the chambers for disrupting the proceedings.
Democrats have vowed to continue the fight:
“All they have done is built a committed group of people across this state who are outraged about the treatment of women and the lengths to which this Legislature will go to take women’s health care away,” said Cecile Richards, the daughter of former Gov. Anne Richards and president of Planned Parenthood.
From The Hill:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) will serve as the lead sponsor of a Senate bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, according to reports Tuesday.
The bill mirrors controversial legislation currently being debated in the Texas state legislature, which has drawn a 13-hour protest from Democrats there and thousands of abortion-rights protestors to Austin. A similar bill passed the U.S. House last month.
So again, I have to ask: How’s that rebranding working for ya, GOP?
