Surprise! Senatorette Lindsey Graham is At Your Cervix, Ladies

This came in last night, so the tomorrow is actually today:

TBotP morning email thingie puts Senatorette Graham’s gambit in context:

FOR YOUR RADAR — Sen. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-S.C.) is set to introduce a Senate bill today banning abortions nationally after the first months of pregnancy. Graham has previously introduced similar bills, but this year’s version — which is likely to ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, WaPo’s Caroline Kitchener reports, as opposed to the 20-week threshold in previous bills — is sure to become a flashpoint. While Graham and Republicans plan to use the bill to rail against Democratic support for “late-term abortions,” Democrats are certain to seize on any GOP effort to impose a national ban.

As always, Lindsey is going whichever way the wind blows. Just a few months ago:

The theocrats are not trying to hide it anymore: they are at your cervix and they plan to continue to fight for the rapist’s rights to choose the mother of his child.

    Lindsey might be the only Republican Senator who has never paid for an abortion.

    In a reasonably logical world this would signal the end of the GQP. I’m not saying we live in that world, but with the women (the skirts?) signing up to vote for their reproductive rights in record numbers we may just get there…

    They were hiding it?
    They are terrible at hiding.

    Sounds like a preemptive deflection maneuver to me. I suspect something big this way comes. Regardless we thank thee for solidifying the women’s vote against the GQP, Ms. Lindsey.

    Why do you call Lindsey “Senatorette”? Is the feminine suffix supposed to be an insult?

    What does that imply about your attitudes towards women?

      Morganzax –

      Welcome to MPS.

      I love it when a first time commenter comes in, guns a-blazing with accusations, and especially when they have not done their homework. We’ll address your questions in multiple parts.

      First the etymology of the suffix ette: it means little. Dinette, kitchenette and so forth. Second definition means fake. Think flannelette, or Chinette paper plates. We think that senatorette encompasses both definitions when it comes to Lindsey Graham as no one is smaller (no giant of the Senate is he) and fake: he holds no actual convictions. We do not understand why you think this is a feminine slur, and we suggest that interpretation is on YOU.

      And now we’ll address the implied accusation of sexism. I believe that MPS is generally speaking a pretty solid ally of women, and we are aggressively and frequently in opposition to sexism and have been from the start. We mock sexists regularly (including announcing a Golden Schlafly now and again to the women who set women back the most), and we have endorsed and supported women candidates regularly. In fact in the 2020 Goat Rodeo our support was for 1) Elizabeth Warren, 2) Kamala Harris, and 3) Amy Klobuchar. Our stated position was in support of any female candidate over any male candidate that year. In 2016 we were rock-solid in support of Hillary Clinton.

      Thank you for your concern, we hope that you too are an ally to women (we assume you must be), and we hope to see you here again, helping us fight against the misogyny that pervades our politics.
