Ancient hate goblin pessary Phyllis Schlafly explains why we should limit the number of women who go to college, you know, so the woman who do go to college can earn their Mrs. Degree?
This is what happens if you don’t take science classes, kids!
BOISE, Idaho — An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.
The question Monday from Republican state Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.
Dr. Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.
“Fascinating. That makes sense,” Barbieri said, amid the crowd’s laughter.
Hey! Let’s look at what the smart Bush, NotChimpy bought! Meet Ethan Czahor, who will be Jebbie’s 2016 Goat Rodeo Chief Technology Officer, you know, as soon as he deletes a few things:
He seems nice.
Guess technical genius Ethan Czahor didn’t know that the Internet has a very, very long memory? Or perhaps like all Wingnuts, he thinks he’s smarter?
I can hardly wait to see who else NotChimpy hires, because Leadership begins with finding the right people to lead.
Hey guys, remember that time some Wingnut from West Virginia told us that rape babies are beautiful and that’s why women should carry them to term? (All together now: “Me Neither!”) — Well, Rep. Brian Kurcaba has apologized in the best good mannered way of Y’all Qaeda:
Kurcaba, a Republican from Monongalia, issued a statement Friday apologizing to “anyone who took my comments about the sanctity of human life to mean anything other than that all children are precious regardless of circumstances.”
Take that, sluts.
Candidate for governor of
Satan’s Hollow, er, Missouri, Catherine Hanaway tells us about the real War on Women:
(It’s long and so awful you might expect Nicolas Cage to make an appearance, but YouTube helpfully provided a transcript…)
“So, the liberals want to talk about conservatives waging a war on women. But, think about what they’re talking about. When their chief criticism of conservatives, the chief criticism is that we stand up for the sanctity of life. That because we are pro-life we are somehow against women.
I am here to say that their culture of permissiveness towards sexual activity is the real war on women. Let’s start with the notion, well it’s not a notion, it’s a fact, that the fact that the culture of sexual permissiveness has led to record levels of out of wedlock births.
Or maybe it might be restricting access to any form of birth control or sex education? And then too ensuring that women will never have equal pay for equal work, or in any way be treated with the same privilege as a man. But let’s not split hairs, right? Do continue.
But it goes a step further, and it’s that step further that I want to talk about today. And this is the hard part. So, if you pursue this course that sexual permissiveness is to be valued, which is the liberal framework and that you should protect sexual permissiveness through abortions and other things, you lead to a conclusion where every sexual preference is acceptable.
Now, I still think and pray that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that those who have a sexual preference for children are evil. But I will tell you that in the four years I spent as the presidentially appointed united states attorney, which is the chief federal prosecutor, a tremendous amount of my time was devoted to child pornography related crimes.
Full-stop. Oh, FFS, what the hell? Seriously? What kind of self-loathing concern trolling is this? Are you really telling us that the outcome for women being in control of their own fates and bodies is child porn?
OK, if we distill that involuted argument, then aren’t you really arguing that as a solution women should have no consent over what happens to them sexually, like children in child porn? Are you really arguing in favor of… rape?
That is a big mug of Ttongsul, and too early in the morning to drink it, if ever. Where does Y’all Qaeda find these lumpen rape apologists, and why are they always from Missouri?
Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.
Obviously, I’m not saying women won’t date or marry a lower-earning men, only that they probably prefer not to. If a higher-earning man is not available, many women are more likely not to marry at all. […]
The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.

Dos dere trashy broads at Fox have Huckabee reaching for his salts. Well, as they say in the south, “Bless his heart.”
“In the South, or in the Midwest, there in Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the F-bomb or use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting,” Huckabee told host Jan Mickelson in a Friday appearance on Des Moines’ “Mickelson in the Morning.”
“In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women,” he said.
“My gosh, this is worse than locker-room talk,” Huckabee continued. “As we would say in the South, that’s just trashy.”
Grab your pearls, Huck, I’m sure that the Scissorheads will be trashy.
Shorter Screwie Louie: he should just paraphrase Freud: “What do broads really want?” But here’s what he really said:
“Most of the conference was 100 percent in favor of the bill that was going to be brought to the floor. Some of us were wishing that there would not be any exceptions because it was going to be 20 weeks — no abortions after 20 weeks — when the evidence is clear those babies feel.”
Most of the conference was 100% in favor of having it be a complete ban? I wonder who was not in favor? Tell us more, Screwie Louie!
“But there was an exception put on there that unless there was a case of reported rape — reported to authorities. Well, that became the dividing factor among some of our female members of the House, Republican female members. But some were adamant they didn’t want any exceptions, some were saying, no, we [should] not require it be reported to authorities.”
Oh, boy, more rape talk from Republicans!
“I’m told that they’re still going to bring it back, but because there was such division among our Republican females, they pulled the bill that day,” he said. “And that was extremely unfortunate, and it sent the entirely wrong message.”
“It was our Republican broads,” Louie didn’t say, “who wanted a legitimate rape exception for our abortion ban.”
So Republican’s Y’all Qaeda faction accidentally lost the latest skirmish on the War on Women when the Republican Women in Congress scuttled the 20-week abortion ban:
House Republican leaders abruptly dropped plans late Wednesday to hold votes on an anti-abortion bill amid a revolt by female GOP lawmakers concerned that the legislation’s restrictive language would once again spoil the party’s chances of broadening its appeal to women and younger voters.
…again, not because banning abortions is bad policy, but because it might hurt them electorally. I’ll take it as a victory, regardless. And as we pointed out previously, it marks the return of the Todd Akin Legitimate Rape Theory which states that the rape didn’t happen if the woman didn’t report it to the police and go through the loving embrace of the Criminal Justice System. And, you know, her body has a way of shutting that down.
Just as a reminder: the position of MPS is that the War on Women is real, and it is a front in the much larger War on Democracy that the theocrats are waging.
Hey guys, remember The Rebranding that obvious anagram Reince Priebus announced after Y’all Qaeda lost the 2012 Goat Rodeo? You know, how Wingnuttia was going to be new, improved, and lemon-scented so the skirts, the blahs, and the yoots of today would learn to love the Republican Party?
On Tuesday, the very first day of the 114th Congress, two lawmakers introduced a measure to ban abortions after 20 weeks, in direct violation of the protections afforded under Roe v. Wade. Reps. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) reintroduced the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the same legislation that successfully passed the House last year.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) — who introduced a companion 20-week abortion ban in the Senate last year that was stalled by Democratic leadership — has already indicated that he plans to re-introduce his own measure in the next few weeks, too. Now that the Senate is GOP-controlled, Republicans are anticipating that they’ll have enough support to pass the ban in both chambers this year, helping the anti-choice community gain momentum for this particular tactic to limit reproductive rights.
Now, of course (should it pass) it will be vetoed by The Kenyan Usurper because choice is only core issue that The Dims will ever stand for (and even then, rather reluctantly), and besides Wingnuttia is probably only doing this to throw a crumb to their fetus-fonding, god-botherers in the base. They will make some good coin on it, too, from the rubes in the Confederacy.
But for anyone who believed them when they gave you their rictus grins and swore that The Culture Wars were over, you have yourselves to blame for not voting.
