Open Thread Alternate


Captain Jack Sparrow: Me? I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.

I liked digby today:

Wise man Chuck Todd said that Nancy Pelosi was pretty much a genius for allowing the abortion restrictions so she could get the bill passed. That seems to be the consensus. There just wasn’t any choice. And anyway, health care is a “woman issue” in the first place, so they really need to stop their bitching unless they want to lose health care altogether.

Both parties are cavalier about women voters. Of course, women only make up over half the electorate so it’s not like it’s important. And needless to say, within the Democratic coalition, which is a large majority pro-choice female and voted 56% for Obama, they are even less important. They know their function is to sacrifice their needs for the greater good of the Democratic family. Isn’t that how it works?

Hope everybody is on the mend, who’s’ever sick or ailing or sad…

     are really getting regressive. It is amazing what some who claim to be pro-womens rights will say and somewhat disgusting what they will post to support their premise. If your the least bit curious and have the status, go look at some of the hidden comments in the fp diary from mcjoan about the “Coat Hanger” amendment. Ugh

    BTW, mcjoan’s piece is quite an eye opener and very well done.

  2. i mean. its not even 183 waterboards and all that anymore, its that they got away with it and they know it and they will keep on going because no one will stop them.


    just all of it. the stupid stupak amendment, ya know, roe v wade is a … ahw fuck. see? all that noise we were making about  rule of law and honoring our constitutional rights all down the toilet because… because why. because they can.

    goddammit. unbefuckinglieveable.
