What It’s Not About


I hate having to write about Rush Limbaugh. He’s one of those who should not have ink spilled on his behalf and whose primary purpose is actually to have people pay attention to him. It’s kind of like when Osama bin Laden attacked these Untied States hoping that we would go berzerkers and do something […]

KIAV to Albo: Can’t Say We Didn’t Warn You


A few days ago, this blogger predicted a dire consequence of all this talk about contraception and other issues in the general vicinity of it: Less leg for you. You start rattling your sabers about taking the power of contraception away from women, fellas, and next thing you know, you’re doing a lot more shaking […]

Have an Abortion. We Dare Ya.


More on this from Bill Tchakirides… Rachel last evening did a pretty good job examining the law the Virginia assembly is fixin’ to pass that ostensibly at its very un-worst only forces a woman seeking an abortion to succumb to an unnecessary medical test first. What she and Virginia Delegate David Englin came to the […]

Do It All For The Nookie


Ladies, leave the room for a second. I need a word with the guys. Thanks. Are they gone? Excellent. Fellas, I’d like to talk to you about contraception. Now, don’t make that face. This is something you might not have considered. If the ongoing war on contraception in this country is successful — and believe […]

What the Komen Freak-Out Belies


I don’t think I even need to characterize the recent flare-up regarding Planned Parenthood and the Komen Foundation. Despicable. But I do have a few observations on the issue. First, have a look at the Komen budget pie chart. This is an organization that spends as much on overhead as it does on screening and […]

You’re Mixing Two Things


At first blush, it seems that Herman Cain is confused. Or, is he? I first thought he seemed confused here, which is not unthinkable. The Republican position on abortion is utterly confused because it flies in the face of the party’s fantasy that it stands against government interference. I initially thought what you were seeing […]

Fetus Fetish


Republigoats and “conservatives” have an unhealthy obsession with the human fetus, and it’s high time for those of us in more reasonable circles to begin framing the issue in this manner. Check it: Last night, the House of Representatives killed a bill that would have recognized that strong-arming little girls into marrying perverts is a […]

Amy Lynn Gillespie


There’s one thing regarding the tale of Amy Lynn Gillespie that doesn’t make a lick of sense to me. I mean, not much of it does actually make sense. Let me review a bit now so you can see what I mean. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette of Nov. 17 says that Gillespie got into some […]

The Assassination of Dr. Tiller


If you haven’t seen it, you’ve got to see Rachel Maddow’s hour-long look at the murder of Dr. George Tiller in May 2009. There are several aspects to this special that makes it especially worth viewing. The first part of “The Assassination of Dr. Tiller” that makes it such important viewing is the snippets of […]

It Is Despicable. It Is Despicable.


High five to this reasonably pissed-off guy, confronting abortion protestors.
