Chris Hayes does a near perfect job of summing up this past week's crippling political blunders by Republicans against women. In addition to those mentioned in the video, (like, Mike 'Uncle Sugar' Huckabee and Rush 'Slut' Limbaugh) here are three more honorable messes:
Rep Allan Rothlisberg: "If I was a woman of 50, I wouldn't need gynecological services." (Al dear, no. It's, "If I were a woman of 50)Rep. Bob Goodlatte: “I would suggest that it is very much the case that those of us in the majority support this legislation because it is the morally right thing to do but it is also very very true that having a growing population and having new children brought into the world is not harmful to job creation,” he said. “It very much promotes job creation for all the care and services and so on that need to be provided by a lot of people to raise children.”GOP Candidate, Richard 'Dick' Black: "…did not know how on earth you could validly get a conviction of a husband-wife rape, when they're living together, sleeping in the same bed, she's in a nightie, and so forth…"Video: After getting over the mild shock of each statement, I quickly reminded myself that women are in the majority, and the more these fruitcakes piss us off, the better it will be for women's rights at the polls in November. Chow to the 'Honey, Honey - Aw, Sugar, Sugar' boys. (And I do mean 'chow')Alert: Yet another anti-women/anti-choice bill was just introduced in Virginia that plans to defund Planned Parenthood all together. It will come up for vote Tuesday, January 28. To help, please sign this petition to Stand Against the Defunding of Planned Parenthood.
