WI Lawmakers Bravely Avoid Urgent Bills In Favor of More Rules For Uteri

News

Every day is now "women are deranged child-eating sluts who should be slapped" day, as evidenced by the fact that this is 130% of what has been appearing in our Google Reader for news-cycle eternity. Your Wonkette warblog has already briefed you about four such items just today, so your editor is going to skip over the gory details of this "Wisconsin Assembly votes to ban abortion coverage from insurance policies" story that popped up and go straight to the part of the AP article where it notes the two economically critical legislative proposals that will likely be pushed until next session so that lawmakers could sermonize about sex organs. Any guesses as to what the neglected bills are?


From AP, the information that should really constitute the first or second graf on every "Republican war on women" story:

The Legislature was poised to adjourn Thursday without passing its two highest priorities coming into the year: a mining bill to help create hundreds of jobs in northern Wisconsin and a measure pumping money into venture capital to help spur new business creation.

Instead, lawmakers spent the early morning hours Wednesday fighting over abortion rights and sex education. The Assembly also passed a bill creating the state's first wolf hunting season.

This is like a bunch of college frat boys running off to egg the dean's house during exam week and turning in an iMovie of themselves performing the egging while they urinate in the bushes in lieu of their exam papers. It is to fundamentally misunderstand the overall assignment at hand.

Here's a fun statistic: Wisconsin governor Scott Walker has so far created only 6,000 of those 250,000 private-sector jobs he promised to materialize by the end of his first term. So have we just figured out who Scott Walker's administration is going to blame for its abject failure at job creating? No no, not the Assembly. We meant women. And wolves. [AP]

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
