The Morning Quote

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.

One Lump of Stupid or Two, Gohmert?

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.”

GOP Women Are Revolting

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.

The Culture Wars Are Over, Right?

baby-flipping-off

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?

Didn’t last long.

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.

Each Time Jim Bakker Gets Nekkid…

…God pops up and starts talking to him:

So lemme get this straight, we can kill people in a war as soon as we stop letting women… (choose what they can do with their bodies)? Seems like a zero-sum game.

Your Bottomless Mug of Stupid

Our new pal Missouri State rep. Rick Brattin explains his bill requiring women to have written consent from a man before she can have an abortion, you know, even following a legitimate rape.

You see, his bill is about men’s rights:

“Right now the way it is the woman gets the full say and the father gets no say, and I think that that needs to change. With the women’s movement for equal rights, well it’s swung so far we have now taken away the man’s right and the say in their child’s life.”

Some Stupid For Your Coffee?

Rich ‘Sparkle Pants’ Lowry, editor of the famous white supremacist pamphlet The National Review, tells us that forced kissing is not sexual assault, he sounds a little hopeful, so I guess Mooselini should pucker-up. Clearly the man should be able to kiss whomever he wants.

The Rebranding, Cont.

Reince, I’m worried for the rebranding, really I am especially when guys like this are campaigning for guys like Gov. Batboy:

“[The War on Women is] a gargantuan lie to get votes. It’s as big a lie as the culture of rape on your campuses. What nonsense. There is a culture of rape on campuses run by the feminist left?

What do you cite to sell me this nonsense? One in 5 women are sexually assaulted on campuses. Do you know what sexual assault means? Did you ever look at what counts? An unwanted kiss is considered sexual assault. I’m stunned it’s only 1 in 5. Four out of five women have not gotten an unwanted kiss? My wife gets unwanted kisses every so often. [Ed. Probably a lot more often than he realizes.]

–Conservative Radio Host Dennis Prager, who believes that racism in America is largely the fault of the black community, so he’s kind of a two-fer, Reince, you know with being anti-woman and anti-black.

How’s that Rebranding Going, Reince?

Reince responds to a question about a CO personhood amendment with an attack on strip clubs giving money to Charlie Crist in Florida? What? Really?

I’m worried about the rebranding, Reince, really I am!
