“I am constantly telling Republicans, please go on the offense and stop playing defense…how about pointing out…[the] wonderful relations Democrats have with women. You have Bob Filner, sexual harassment; John Edwards, cheating on his cancer-stricken wife; Elliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner, and, of course, Bill Clinton; and Teddy Kennedy who has the only confirmed kill in the war on women.”
Award for the most seriously unserious speech about women’s rights and abortion goes to The State Of The Uterus Address which features a puppet in the (more or less) shape of a uterus with fallopian tubes, eyes and a mouth. Ewwwww!
Mostly the “speech” was about bashing the GOP, but when your vehicle for information looks like a bad imitation of Miss Piggy with a nose job, horns and collagen lip augmentation, it’s tough to take you seriously.
This is a massive embarrassment to my gender, and this sort of wacko stuff needs to go the way of the back alley abortions.
When it comes to abortion in the IL17thCD, it looks like the Battle Of The Extremists.
Rich Miller has a post based on a Schilling fundraiser email where he calls abortion genocide in a plea for $$$. Naturally Bustos got a hold of this email and sent out a fundraiser of her own asking for $$$ to stop Schilling’s “nonsense”.
I know the abortion industry is one of Bustos’ primary campaign contributers.
I know that Schilling is vehemently anti-abortion.
I’m in the squishy middle and so are a whole lot of other people. So I ask:
Why is abortion THE issue for Schilling? Did he stop abortion when he was in Congress? Did the GOP stop abortion during the six years they controlled Congress and the White House?
No, they did not and Schilling won’t stop abortion if he is elected in November.
I understand the need to whip up the Passion Of The Faithful—for both parties, but could Schilling at least address some issues that have wider appeal?
Abortion is one of the few Culture War issues the GOP is winning—a majority believe it should be curtailed beyond 20 weeks—so why the hell is Schilling taking the hard line when he could draw more people into the GOP camp? Ideology evidently trumps logic.
Too bad he wasn’t more hardcore on federal spending when he was in Congress because that affects everyone in the country, not just women.
Exit Question: Why didn’t Schilling stop genocide when he had the chance in ’11-’12?
