Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) was on the House floor yesterday defending her vote in favor of the recently-passed "Protect Life Act," which allows federally-funded hospitals to deny treatment to women seeking abortions regardless of the circumstances…
"For my colleagues across the aisle who say this is a misogynist bill, nobody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have. But fifty percent of the unborn babies that are being aborted are females. So the misogyny comes from those that promote the killing of unborn babies. That’s where the misogyny comes in."
Good point! Very very good point! Bet you liberal death-peddlers never thought of it that way?
Also, since a decent proportion of of those babies are minorities, that makes Foxx a civil rights leader on par with Martin Luther King, Jr. And somewhere between five and ten percent of them would have eventually decided to become gay, so that makes her a top gay-rights activist like Harvey Milk.
How is it that we haven't engraved her face onto a coin yet?

As you know, House Democrats recently passed a health care reform bill, despite fierce opposition from the GOP. Honestly, I don't know how they pulled it off when the Republicans were pulling out the big guns: Leis and babies. After all, who can forget that famous proverb, "If you spout non sequiturs about flower necklaces and awkwardly exploit your grandchildren by the river long enough, eventually you'll see the body of your enemy float by"?

Here's a quick question for you: What's the single biggest threat facing Americans today? If you said terrorism, you're close. That's definitely a huge threat that you should really be more afraid of — especially today, on Election Day — but it's only number two.
Number one, though, is so much worse…
As the House convened Monday afternoon, Ms. [Virginia] Foxx, a North Carolina Republican, lashed out at the proposal Democrats are trying to bring to the floor for a vote by the weekend, hitting it for potentially using tax dollars to pay for abortions, among other things…
"I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country," Ms. Foxx said, adding later: "It is a bad bill and the American people should be frightened of it."
You know what we should do? We should give health care to the terrorists. Or would that violate the Geneva Conventions?

I have a feeling this is not what Michael Steele had in mind when he promised to re-brand the GOP has newer and hipper…
Don't you hate, though, how these funny vial clips often make unkind assertions about politicians and leave you wondering if they have any proof to back up their claims. Well, turns out, there's a post for that.

What's happening in America today just makes me sick! Racists are citizens, too! What happened to their Constitutional right to behave like racists without being labeled as racists?
It's one of the most important principles on which this great land was founded…
