Congratulations, Arizona Women- Every Single One of You Is Now Offi...

By  April 12th, 2012

According to Jan Brewer and the deep thinkers in the Arizona legislature:

Life starts earliest in Arizona, which now defines gestational age as beginning on the first day of a woman’s last period, rather than at fertilization. In practice, that means the state has banned abortions after about 18 weeks (20 weeks from the last menstruation) except in the case of medical emergencies. While that provision has been much discussed, abortions after that point account for only about 1 percent of the procedures currently performed.

The stipulation likely to be most widely felt is what experts are calling an effective shutdown of medication abortions. These nonsurgical abortions are usually performed within the first nine weeks of pregnancy, and account for between 17 and 20 percent of all abortions, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-rights advocacy group. While women often take the pills at clinics and in their homes, the bill now mandates that a medical provider must have hospital privileges within 30 miles of where the procedure takes place. Many times clinics or homes are not within 30 miles of hospitals, and the distance prevents providers from other cities or even states from caring for women, says Elizabeth Nash of the Guttmacher Institute. Another factor that could contribute to what Nash called a “shutdown” of medication abortions is that the law requires abortion pills to be administered using outdated protocols, confusing providers and obscuring proper use of the drugs.

Now that Arizona has decided to separate being pregnant from when you actually become pregnant, every single woman is, according to the law, pregnant the moment they begin their last period, and will remain officially pregnant until the beginning of your very next period. There will apparently be a 1 day window in between these two events in which you are not officially pregnant.

Down the rabbit hole we go.

Sarah Palin picks Mr Communist Under Every Bed West for the Veep slot

Sarah Palin has picked her favorite—Florida’s conservative firebrand Allen West. The congressman, who earlier this year made headlines with his intense anti-Democrat rhetoric, is the former Republican VP hopeful's "going rogue" man for the job.

On Fox News Tuesday, Palin touted West's military experience as well as his understanding of the Constitution and U.S. foreign policy. Encouraging the GOP nominee to avoid a "safe" choice for running mate, the former governor of Alaska noted to Fox's Sean Hannity that the media will beat up whoever’s chosen, rogue or reliable.

The Post-Reality Party

By  April 11th, 2012

Looks like some Republicans are getting a little pushback for their support of the “very serious” Ryan wealth redistribution plan:

Rep. Dan Benishek’s (R-MI) embrace of the Republican Party’s platform ran into stiff opposition at a town hall meeting in Saulte Sainte Marie, Michigan when at least a dozen constituents, many of them senior citizens, pushed back against Benishek’s claims on Medicare, Social Security, oil subsides and health care reform.

***

Benishek also displayed a shocking lack of self-awareness about his level of knowledge of some key facts. “There are no government subsidies for oil,” he told one woman who suggested ending the very real subsidies given to oil corporations to help defray the cost of Medicare. Watch a portion of the town hall:

At one point, the discussion turned to health care reform. Benishek, who served as a medical doctor before he was elected to Congress in 2010, was thrust onto the national stage after his predecessor Bart Stupak cast the deciding vote in favor of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. He told the audience that the United States has the best health care system in the world, before he was literally laughed at by several attendees.

“We have the highest life spans in the world,” argued Benishek. Several women in the audience quickly pointed out that in fact, many countries with universal health care place higher than the United States in terms of life expectancy, including Canada, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. The United States ranks 50th, just behind South Korea and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“I don’t believe that’s true,” said Benishek. “How can you not know that, you’re a medical doctor?” one woman replied.

He has no idea what he is talking about, and I was loving watching the granny-brigade call him a liar and laugh at him. He’s just wrong about everything. We don’t have the highest life expectancy, we most certainly have subsidies for oil and gas (and, in fact, Republicans in the Senate just voted down ending them), and my favorite was the claim that oil companies pay 40% of their income to taxes:

Exxon Mobil, the most profitable of the big five oil companies, made $41.1 billion in profits last year. Although Exxon made 35 percent more profits since 2010, its estimated effective tax rate actually dropped. Citizens for Tax Justice reported Exxon paid only 17.6 percent taxes in 2010, lower than the average American, and a Reuters analysis using the same criteria estimates that Exxon will pay only 13 percent in effective taxes for 2011. Exxon paid zero taxes to the federal government in 2009.

Republicans really are embracing the idea of creating their own reality. It’s truly a bizarre spectacle, when the citizenry is so much more informed than their elected officials.

Wow! Your states governing bodies are a treasure trove of nutcases!!

Does anybody know the total number of US state representatives and senators that are elected into position?

At the Federal level you have 100 Senators and 435 representatives right?

Red-Baiting

By  April 11th, 2012

Have you no sense of decency Of course he doesn’t:

As many as 80 House Democrats are communists, according to Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).

West warned constituents at a Tuesday town hall event that he’s “heard” that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. West didn’t elaborate beyond that, however, and didn’t offer up any names at the time. There are currently 190 House Democrats.

West spokeswoman Angela Melvin later defended West’s comments—and clarified to whom West was referring.

“The Congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies. The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom,” Melvin said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

I think the best part of this is just how ineffective it will be. Other than some codgers at the VFW and the tricorner hat crowd in the teahadist movement, the fear of communism isn’t part of the current zeitgeist. The wall fell a couple decades ago, and it’s been a long time since anyone has seen a duck and cover video in school. Worrying about Islamic terrorists in our midst might still have a little cachet, but really, communists? Communism lost. Everyone knows that. Instead of calling them communists, he might as well be screaming “THE REDCOATS ARE COMINGTHE REDCOATS ARE COMING!”

Who Herman Cain means by 'other people'

  -  

When it comes to the "war on women," Republicans really need to find other public figures to address the issue.

The RNC chairman isn't good at it. The RNC's spokesperson isn't good at it. TheRepublicans' Senate leader is awful at it.

And Herman Cain, addressing gender issues on Fox News this morning, appears to be the worst of them all.

Cain was addressing the gender gap in the latest national polling, with a narrow majority of men supporting Mitt Romney and a strong majority of women backing President Obama.

Reflecting on this, the failed presidential candidate said, "I think many men are much more familiar with the failed policies than a lot of other people, as well as the general public."

Hmm. First, the argument here is that women would agree with men, if only women weren't, in Cain's mind, ignorant. I'll go out on a limb here and say that's probably not helpful.

Second, Cain is also willing to dismiss women voters in general as "other people," as if men are the voters who really count.

It almost makes the caterpillar talk appear insightful and respectful by comparison.

National Review Fires Derbyshire

National Review editor Rich Lowry does the right thing, announcing that John Derbyshire will no longer be writing for the influential conservative outlet:

His latest provocation, in a webzine, lurches from the politically incorrect to the nasty and indefensible. We never would have published it, but the main reason that people noticed it is that it is by a National Review writer. Derb is effectively using our name to get more oxygen for views with which we’d never associate ourselves otherwise. So there has to be a parting of the ways. Derb has long danced around the line on these issues, but this column is so outlandish it constitutes a kind of letter of resignation. It’s a free country, and Derb can write whatever he wants, wherever he wants. Just not in the pages of NR or NRO, or as someone associated with NR any longer.

Lowry and the National Review deserve credit for finally cutting ties with Derbyshire’s longrecord of hateful rhetoric.
