Yes, that's right. Just like Peter Jackson's production of The Hobbit, I've found so much raw material to work with that I decided to break what was originally a single story into two, and now three sections.

As I reported yesterday, in addition to being front-paged here at dKos and at Eclectablog, the first chart went utterly viral, hitting everything from Alternet and Balloon Juice to the New Civil Rights Movement, Dan Savage and even (and it doesn't get more surreal than this) Neil Gaiman by way of Wil Wheaton.

dKos itself even did an email alert blast thingie with it.

Anyway, the second chart didn't receive quite as much hoopla, but that's fine.

Still, this has turned into a strange, mini-calling of sorts, so I've decided to complete the "trilogy". Below the fold, I present The Republican Rape Advisory Chart: Volume III.

WARNING: This one's a doozie.

To fight back against the Republican war on women, please contribute to the Daily Kos-endorsed women who are running for House and Senate.
In general, I'd recommend helping out ANY of the Democrats running against the scumbags who made the quotes or, alternately, Planned Parenthood, RAINN or the Jamie Leigh Foundation, all of which seem appropriate.

Planned Parenthood
Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network
The Jamie Leigh Foundation

Anyone familiar with the name Jamie Leigh Jones knows that she's the young woman referred to in the final listing in the chart above--she's the one who charged KBR employees with brutalizing her (and KBR itself with covering it up) in Iraq, and then endured a multi-year battle to take her case to court. Below is the most riveting 10 minutes of questioning I've ever witnessed, by Minnesota Senator Al Franken of a KBR attorney:

Since this is the "final chapter" in this series (though, tragically, not in real life), I'm embedding Volumes I and II right here as well--you're gonna have to scroll a lonnnnng way to post comments, I'm afraid. As an added "bonus", Volume I has also been modified to match the formatting of the other two, including source attribution for each of the quotes:

But wait, there's more!

I'm also embedding the "Compleat" Republican Party Rape Advisory Chart--all three volumes in one massive image file! The perfect holiday gift, suitable for framing...or something like that.

Anyway, you'll have to click to see this one full-size; it's just too damned big, thanks to the nearly ENDLESS number of horrifyingly offensive, medically inaccurate and flat-out ugly statements made and votes cast about rape-related issues by the Republican Party over the past few years:

Republican Party Rape Advisory Chart (Volumes I - III Compleat)
Anyway, as noted at the bottom of Volume III, I'm now done with this strange, disturbing but hopefully helpful project, but since there's SO MANY MORE examples of Republicans saying awful things about the subject, I'd advise checking out Days Without a GOP Rape Mention, which is keeping an ongoing archive of such things. I had nothing to do with that site; it was inspired by Stephen Colbert's fantastic takedown of the Republican Party the other evening.
Extra props to connecticutie, who came up with the "terror/rape chart" idea in the first place...give her blog some love, willya?
And with that, I think I'll take several long, hot showers to clean the slime of researching all of these quotes off of me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
