    100% rating from the NRA in their election campaigns. No matter how insane the proposal, they have to support it or risk getting something less than a perfect rating from the FRC, NRA, National Right to Life, or whoever else stupid, lazy rightwingers rely on to decide how to vote.

    •  Ugh. I can't even picture being (4+ / 0-)

      that craven, wow.  It's REALLY the women that boggle my mind.  I get wanting to stay in power, blah blah blah, but there has to be a place where you draw the line, and if THIS is not it for women ... I don't even know what to say.  This is men telling you that there's "rape" and then there's "rape rape," and somehow, that's OKAY?  Auuuuuugh, no words for how angry that makes me.

      If you want to fight and die for my right to sit here and bitch, sleep with whomever you want.

        Look what happened to Murkowski in AK. She's anti-choice, but wasn't anti-choice ENOUGH and got teabagged. Now that she's not beholden to the '100%ers' anymore, she's voting her actual conscience (or possibly just punishing the base that betrayed her) much more often.

    •  I know they need to be elected, but when (0+ / 0-)

      are these Democrats going to have their 'Rosa Parks Moment?'
