A Bit 'o Random Musings on Politics, Religion, and Anything Else That Passes Through My Crazy Head

Republicans are...

Poopyheads.  There, I said it.  They are behaving like THIRD-GRADERS.  No, actually, that's too nuanced.  Republicans are behaving like small children in a restaurant throwing a temper tantrum because they can't order dessert.  Even third graders know better.

First, the name of their first bill? "Repeal the Job-killing health care act."  It's not job-killing.  Also, you are naming something in so incendiary a manner that even those who may agree with some of your points are amazed at your colossal lack of respect for people who have genuine disagreement with you.  You betray your childishness by naming something that way.

Second on Republican's agenda, I find the "Stop Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act" offensive.  The idea of this bill is to stop taxpayer funding for abortions IN SOME RAPE CASES.  Thus saying that rape of a mentally incapacitated or drunk woman, for example, is somehow less of a rape.  That is just wrong, and offensive to me and all women everywhere.  That has moved beyond childishness to being a colossal jerk to women who are in an incredibly difficult situation (and you, as a heavy handed government interloper, would presume to make their personal decisions for them).

So, Republicans, enjoy your poopyheadedness.  I hope it leads to your downfall in the 2012 elections when the American people realize you haven't done anything except call people names and prey on society's most vulnerable.

P.S. I'm not saying Democrats can't be petty and petulant too (goodness knows they are masters of it), but I think Republicans are turning it into an art form.


  1. The new "personhood" amendment proposal in Mississippi is the sequel to the "Stop Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act," a.k.a. make some rape okay Act. In addition to completely outlawing abortions, the amendment would outlaw some forms of birth control as well as effectively stop in vitro fertilization. Its just more of that "poopyheadedness" again. Mitt Romney just came out in support of the personhood amendment. Boo!
