Lady Republicans Willfully Refuse To Recognize Phoniness Of 'War On Women' In VAWA Vote

News

"We face an abundance of hard choices," said Ol' Walnuts, John McCain, discussing the Senate's vote to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. "Divisive slogans and declaring of phony wars are intended to avoid those hard choices and to escape paying a political price for doing so."


It is good to know that the War on Women is divisive and phony (and anyway Obama started it)! Then about five seconds after McCain finished talking, 31 male Republican senators voted against reauthorizing VAWA (which provides funding for domestic violence shelters and law enforcement and all sorts of other special-interest nonsense, because it might cause somebody to stop beating Messicans and gays.

In fact every female senator, including the GOPpy kind, voted to reauthorize VAWA despite the fact that it would extend protections to gays and lesbians, illegals, and Injuns. (It probably helped that Lisa Murkowski, lady senator of Alaska, got an EARFUL from all her rugged individualist moose-hunting sistren when she voted for the Blunt Amendment, which would have allowed employers to pick and choose whether their whore employees got slut pills, and immediately groveled that she regretted her vote.) Oh well, all those ladies will probably get Hatched when it is time for them to run for reelection. Sorry, chicks. Next time try not having fallopes!

Who voted agin it? Not McCain -- he's been around long enough to remember that this is actually a historically bipartisan law, and he's got a bevy of sex-positive Ladies to home. But Lindsey Graham did. And all your usual suspects -- your Coburns and Inhofes and Demints, your Ghost Strom Thurmonds and your Jesse Helmses -- they voted against it too.

Marco Rubio, R-Havana, voted against money for women's shelters and Native American enforcement also in addition, which means, we would gather, that Mitt Romney's hand up his butt is a no vote as well. [NYT]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
