Rachel Maddow: Anti-Choice Right Targets Doctors

This doctor shares what he goes through and faces by providing safe abortions. He was one of the doctors on the Wanted Posters that circulated in North Carolina last November. I figured this was fitting considering that today is Abortion Providers Appreciation Day. The doctor asked that his face be concealed and his voice altered. That’s why it sounds creepy.

Abortion Provider Appreciation Day

March 10 is Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. NARAL states, “Abortion Provider Appreciation Day was established on the anniversary of the murder of Dr. Gunn to honor the medical professionals who continue to face a campaign of violence, vandalism, and intimidation.”
Dr. Gunn’s murder led to the passage of the FACE Act (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances). His death even inspired Marilyn Manson’s song, Get Your Gunn. He said “Gunn’s murder by ‘pro-life’ activists is ultimate hypocrisy.”

In light of the war on women legislation on the federal and state level, they should be appreciated. Doctors who provide abortions do so knowing the danger. If God forbid (yes, I went there) the pro-birth movement gets their way and abortion is again illegal, there is already a network of doctors who will go underground.

Thank you doctors for taking the risk to ensure safe abortions.

Rachel Maddow: Wisconsin GOP Votes to Strip Union Rights

My head was near spinning off last night. I had so many questions. Rachel Maddow did an excellent job, as usual, of explaining what went on. There is even footage of what happened moments before the vote in the chamber.

Patriotism is So Hot

Who knew just how hot?

Gingrich: Love of Country Contributed to Affair

“There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate,” Gingrich said.

Patriotism made you unzip your pants. OK. I thought I’ve heard all the excuses in the book. Apparently not. Points for originality.

Callista is a striking platinum blonde which is reason enough. But to add love of country into the mix? Did you meet her at a pool party where she was wearing a Stars ‘n Stripes bikini?

He was lambasting Clinton for his affair with Monica while getting some Callista-love on the side. Is his affair better or more justifiable because he loves America? At least Clinton wasn’t with Monica while his wife was dying. But that’s neither here nor there – considering she was his first wife and is dead and all.

I don’t know, but patriotism and pu…nevermind. It sounds a little kinky. Naturally, my sick mind went there. I pictured red, white, and blue candles, and America the Beautiful playing softly in the background. Of course, Callista is wearing nothing but a Statue of Liberty foam crown. This is getting weird, even for me.

His comment was bizarre to say the least. Just be honest. She was hot, you were horny, and one thing led to another. That is believable.
