  1. McCain is an enigma. There have been many times I’ve admired him, and many times he scares the beejesus out of me. Unpredictable. The man I’ve often admired showed up to the committee investigating military rape. He seemed to understand and to be horrified. Unlike Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) who suggested that the “hormone level created by nature” was to blame for rapes in the military.

    When will everyone know that rape is a crime that has nothing to do with sex? Rape is all about power and control.

    This reminds me of the numskulls who couldn’t understand the vast differences between pedophilia and homosexuality when the news was full of stories about Catholic priests abusing children.

    It reminds me of those who call themselves moral because they want to believe they’re pro-life when all they are is pro birth. The life of females means nothing to these self-righteous fanatics. How can a zygote be a human being deserving of full rights but a pregnant woman not be an equal human being worthy of full rights? It’s moral to trust and respect women to make their own decisions. It’s moral that women should have health care available and not need to endanger their own lives to get it.

    I don’t know how people become adults without learning simple facts, and I never cease to be amazed by the fantasies of the deeply ignorant.

    • I don’t think the republicans are enamoring themselves to women with their prehistoric beliefs about rape. Misogyny … so easy a caveman can do it.

      It’s okay. Women know. Women vote — more reliably than any other demographic.

  2. Republicans are once again attempting to defund the non-existent ACORN group.

    ACORN hasn’t existed for the last 3 years.

    We need to get these people some serious help. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just defund their salaries. Next best thing — UNelect them! Let’s work toward a slate full of women candidates. No, not stupid women who aren’t distinguishable from these stupid men. Women — you all know who they are.

    What amazes me the most is not how deceiving these republicans are, it’s that they so easily fool their constituency. Busy at something…

  3. Speaking of republican men who are very short on facts, have NO integrity and need to be UNelected

  4. Seems republicans not only strike out on efforts to include women but are working hard to further alienate minorities with their immigration stance. Republicans are experts at cutting off their nose to spite their face.

    Wonkbook: The immigration bill is moving right

    The immigration bill will only move to the right from here.

    On Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio told Fox News that the bill didn’t have the 60 votes necessary to overcome a Republican filibuster in the Senate. In fact, right now, the immigration bill doesn’t even have his vote. In part, that’s because of “how little confidence people have that the federal government will enforce the law.”

    So Rubio is working on making the law harder to enforce. Politico reports that Rubio has partnered with Sen. John Cornyn on a sweeping amendment that would require “stricter border patrol provisional ‘triggers’ before registered immigrants are allowed to apply for green card status. His amendment would require 100 percent operational control of the Southern borders and that 90 percent of illegal border crossers be apprehended. It would also require 100 percent border surveillance, or situational awareness, of each one-mile segment of the Southern border and installment of a national E-Verify system before registered immigrants can pursue green cards.”

    That sure sounds as if no one is ever getting a green card.
