There are three things you need to know about Texas Senator Charles Schwertner actually SMASHING A GLASS TABLE from having to listen to these awful Texas citizens testifying about their Constitutional right to an abortion:


1. The bills women were testifying against were pretty bad bills: one would ban women from donating their fetuses' tissue to science to help others; the second would ban the safest second trimester abortion procedure; and the third would force women to pay for proper burial of their fetuses' remains. (If you haven't buried a loved one lately, our most recent cremation -- though of a full-grown human -- cost $3300.)

2. Since he is a physician, Schwertner doubtless knows but does not care that only 10 percent of abortions are in the second trimester -- or that the second trimester is when women who would very much like to have their babies find out those babies have such terrible fetal abnormalities, they will either be stillborn or live excruciatingly short lives filled with excruciating pain.

3. When Schwertner tells a woman to shut up, SHE WILL SHUT UP.

EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!

Fellow Wonkers, this last week of horror has been wearing on us all, because here we are in a world where the "president" of the United States has ordered that migrant children be taken away from their parents at the border, and is simultaneously proud of it (for his base) and cravenly blaming it on Democrats because even he knows it's morally reprehensible. But what the hell can we do about it, we are all keening, beyond calling our senators and representatives and posting sadness on Twitter, the latter of which is of dubious utility to anyone, and mostly depressing?

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee's playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out!
