Inept vs. Insane – March Madness

March has come in like a lion, at least for the hapless residents of the eastern states. Hot air from the south colliding with a cold wind from the north created an army of tornadoes, marching across the landscape like William Tecumseh Sherman and leaving death and destruction in its wake.

On the political storm front, noted windbag Rush Limbaugh has created a tempest of his own with his recent comments. By catagorizing a young law student as a slut for having the gall to testify in favor of free contraception, he has managed to piss off legions of mothers and fathers across the nation. Suddenly, the debate shifted away from the rights of Catholics to deny birth control on religious grounds as parents adopted Ms. Fluke as their poster girl for an intolerant and oppressive ideology.

Right on cue, indignant liberals called for Blubberlips to be banned from the airwaves, but the smarter political operatives in the Democratic cabal understood that he was, in effect, doing their job for them. You can’t buy that kind of press coverage.

Not to be outdone, Rick Santorum is roaming around the country making bizarre statements and pining for a good ol’ fashion theocracy to replace the marxist sodomites in DC. Ricky squandered his lead in Michigan by alienating female voters, allowing not-so-favorite son Mitt Romney to win by a narrow margin. Voters were no doubt impressed by the Mittster’s observation that Michigan trees are just the right height, whatever that means.

Meanwhile, Team Obama is frantically trying to keep Bibbi the Yahoo from starting World War III, at least until after November. The Iranians have developed a knack for derailing Democratic Presidents, and the Big O knows that an oil crisis could change the electoral dynamic in a heartbeat. Also, he is working to deflect criticism of the decision to build a sports complex for the soccer imams in Guantanamo instead of giving the money to Kevin Johnson and the Maloofs. He knows that he won’t win the NASCAR vote, but he’ll need the NBA come election day.

    It takes a lot of gall for a middle class or above law student to demand the contraception of their choice for free. For the price of a McDonalds dinner for two one can get pills or condoms good for a month of vigorous whoopee at any of the less fashionable big box discounters.

    The cheapest way to do this would be for the feds to have pharmacies send the bill to Uncle Obama.

  2. Todd juvinall says:

    Crabb you forgot to mention Obama’s vote for infanticide. Now how is that possible? Of all people I thought you would get Limbaugh’s technique of discussing the absurdity espoused by the liberal by being purposely absurd. Looks ike you flopped on that. Limbaugh is pointing out in his silly way the ridiculousness of taxpayers paying for a condom for someone like this girl who can afford it. Why is it our responsibility? My guess is this girl along with the lib woman generation want it both ways. They say leave my womb alone when I get pregnant and want to abort yet demand we pay for a condom which it seems is quite a private decision. Limbaugh has only outrages a few who have a megaphone and I am not worried.

  3. rl Crabb says:

    Where I come from, a statement like that would be a whuppin’ offense. One can argue the pros and condoms of birth control without such vulgarity. How’s about as an experiment, you use the headline “LIBERAL WOMEN ARE SLUTS” for your next CABPRO rant. Better yet, make it into a t-shirt and wear it around town. Let me know how that works out for you.

    I don’t know about you folks, or maybe it’s my advanced age (65 now), but I’m tired of hearing about sex. It’s none of my business what anyone else does and quite honestly, from what I’ve heard, I DO NOT want to know anything about what others do.

    As far as birth control goes: I’m just one person and a female at that: When I didn’t want to get pregnant I prevented that from happening. I used birth control pills (which I paid for myself) then switched to an IUD device. It’s as non-complex as that:

    It’s a personal matter, not a group decision. The fact that we’re talking about such a personal matter proves that there’s nothing really important for us to sink our teeth into (Hi, Lorenea Bobbit!).

    Are ya’ll tired of hearing about some of these personal topics?

  5. Greg Goodknight says:

    Christina, the issue of free contraceptives is being used by D’s to try to paint R’s as being against contraceptives, rather than about everyone, including churches, being forced to pay for them. Should lesbians and gays get an insurance discount? What about menopausal women and their male partner(s)?

    If Obama and Democrats in the Congress thinks contraceptives should be free to the user, they should introduce, pass and sign legislation that makes it so, not send students with a history of activism on the issue into Congress to whine that their insurer isn’t paying for them and should be forced to. Make the case for the Feds to just pay the bill when someone walks into CVS with a script or buys an OTC alternative. It’s an equivalent public policy, so why not, except for the fact it would be a big loser for Dems trying to manufacture a controversy where none exists.

    I hate it when Dems do something that makes me stand up for Repubs. Coercive utopians at work.

    • E Christina Dabis says:

      It’s May 15, 2015, and history is repeating itself. Once again the Democrats are blaming the Republicans for not funding birth control. …. We’re fools to keep taking the bait.

  6. Todd juvinall says:

    Greg your view is spot on. Sorry you had to defend a republican though. Crabb should wear a T=shirt around town that says I want to pay my taxes and have it spent on condoms. Now his view may work in his Nevada City environs but not very well in the circles of people who actually pay taxes. Unlike Crabb, I love all women but if I want to play in the world Christine is talking about, I will pay my own way. Besides, who wears the condom Crabb and why was she testifying? You must be siding with her since you arer attacking those on the other side of the issue. Why? Give us your best shot.

  7. rl Crabb says:

    The point here, Greg, is that Limburger and Santorum are screwing themselves and their party by making this a referendum of social issues and morality instead of focusing on deficits and debts. If you want a more moral society, the first step is jobs and prosperity. When people have those opportunities they tend to make better choices. The Dems want to make us more reliant on government and an endless stream of benefits and handouts that will only make people more miserable when the well runs dry. It’s sad to see the conservatives shooting themselves in both feet day after day when the country needs an opposition party that can stop the bleeding.

  8. E. Christina Dabis says:

    Hi Greg and Todd,

    The politicians are just throwing out a ‘you-can’t-do-anything-but-talk-about-it-political-bone’ to chew. They are successfully diverting attention. Away from what?

    Reproduction, sex, pregnancy, abortion, prevention, ad nauseum, is a personal matter. At the end of each day it is still a personal matter.

    This woman, Erma Goldman, stated the bigger issue correctly. Her quote, “If voting really changed anything, it would be abolished.” was used by the late Ken Livingston, former Mayor of London in his writings. She was right.

    Conclusion: Vote when they give you the opportunity, the rest of the time enjoy each others company and ignore political and religious topics.

    Todd, it’s good to know you’re still around. Hope you’re healthy and enjoying life. Fill me in on the details. Greg, please call me “Chris” as my friends and family do. I hope to get to know you, or remember you if that’s the case. (age!)

  9. Greg Goodknight says:

    Todd, you got RLC’s statements wrong, but RLC, you got it wrong too: “Suddenly, the debate shifted away from the rights of Catholics to deny birth control” is a complete fabrication, as Catholicism isn’t trying to deny birth control to anyone. The Catholic church does want Catholics to choose to not use it (not that they’ve been real successful at convincing many), and they do not want to be forced to pay for it (or pretending that they aren’t when their insurance companies pretend to give it as a free benefit, what a compromise). The Dem message has been one of blurring reality to something that they can take to the polls.

    Correction:

    “If voting changed anything they would make it illegal”

  11. Greg Goodknight says:

    Chris, we spoke once. I may have convinced you, while standing waiting for Big A burgers, that car dealerships were conduits to take wealth out of the community, and it was manufacturing, which shipped things of value out in exchange for money flowing in, that made a region wealthy.

    But then, maybe not.

    It was a lesson taught me by a friend’s dad, a fellow who ended up making his daughter fabulously wealthy by founding a semiconductor company in Tucson, later sold to Texas Instruments. He had for years fought city and county politicians who were steered by main street retailers who were the direct providers of the sales tax money stream, while being blind to how the wealth behind that money stream was actually created.

  12. E. Christina Dabis says:

    Hi Greg,

    Well, thing’s haven’t really changed, have they? All the more reason we should visit with each other at Big A’s and ignore the rest of it.

    How’ve you been? Aside from being a Bob’s Blogger, what have you been doing? We’ve been looking at buying a few roses for the back property but ignorance slows us down. Do you know much (anything is more than our knowledge) about roses?

  13. Todd juvinall says:

    Greg thanks for being more accurate on the issue. It really is a diversion by the left. Remember the question Stephy posed to Romney about the states and contraception during the ABC sponsored debate? It was a Stephy and Obama ploy. Romney answered it correctly but the democrats somehow saw some kind of opening to make a non issue into this ridiculous diversion. Limbaugh was a bit naughty calling the girl complaining about no condoms, a slut. That was not appropriate and he has now apologized. But the underlying issue is can the government tell a insurance company they have to supply condoms. What about it Crabby, you think they should?

  14. Todd juvinall says:

    From the Blaze. It appears he girl is 30 and not 23.
    “For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.”

  15. rl Crabb says:

    Well, if you go back and actually read my earlier response, I said the pros and condoms could be debated without the vulgarity. Personally, I never quite understood why viagra was being covered by insurance. Either cover both sexes or neither one.

  16. Todd juvinall says:

    The condom is to protect whom? Viagra should not be covered/

  17. Todd juvinall says:

    Found this on the Fox website this morning. The real sluts, the politicians of the democrat persuasion are using Limbaughs words to raise cash. What a hoot!

    “A day earlier, President Obama called Fluke to “thank her” for speaking out. Congressional Democrats, meanwhile, condemned the Limbaugh comments while also incorporating them in House fundraising efforts.”
