Rage. Probably political rage. Maybe just personal rage. Lots of sarcasm and cynicism. Also pretty pictures.
Republicans live in a weird alternative universe.
"There have been physical altercations between at least two men on the House floor, and I don’t recall any of them every being banned from speaking," Byrum said. "It’s just unacceptable to silence women when we’re talking about women’s reproductive rights." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/14/michigan-woman-lawmakers-silenced-_n_1598168.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular
Rep. Barb Byrum (D-Onondaga) makes an interesting point. The arbitrary lines drawn between what behavior is “acceptable” and what is not are getting more and more abstract and unfounded (anyone remember FL’s Uterati?). The language used in the bill, was absolutely relevant. What’s with the GOP and lady parts? The Republicans in the Michigan House (and elsewhere) are making rules up as they go along and these rules suit only their own agenda. The Constitution has been thrown out - Free Speech? There is no common decency. There is downright childish behavior rampant within our Legislative bodies and no one can or will do anything to bring the level of decorum and respect back for fear of massive media backlash - because, let’s face it: everything is “Breaking News” and everything is extreme, and no one wants to be the “story of the week” and affect their precious chances of being re-elected. Our own legislators behave as if they were characters in The Jersey Shore.
Some of you may be catching wind of a story about some state level Michigan Republicans huffing and puffing because a female representative said the word “vagina” on the floor of the House.
Ignore this story. It is a sideshow.
Instead, please turn your attention to this guy. His name is Bruce Rendon, and he is a state representative from a tiny little backwater town in northwest bumble-fuck Michigan with a population of less than 1000.
Bruce Rendon is not an evil man, just a simple one. He has an associates degree in how to draw a straight line. He’s in the construction business just like his daddy used to be, and his idea of a god-fearing good time is judging dairy cows at county fairs. That’s fine. The world needs men who pin prize ribbons on cattle, but those men should not be given the power to legislate complex bioethical issues, because that’s how wars on women get started.
You see, this pointy-headed numnard recently introduced House Bill 5711, a ham-fisted piece of legislation that’s being called the nation’s worst anti-abortion bill. All the ridiculousness on the floor of the Michigan House is a direct result of this ignorant piece of draconian drivel.
It’s unsophisticated men like Bruce Rendon who in their righteousness are fucking things up for the rest of us, and though he may not be an evil man, that doesn’t make him any less an enemy, and I personally believe it’s always a good thing to know your enemy’s name.
Go fuck yourself, Bruce Rendon.
Should we name that sticky, sometimes slimy substance that gets left behind on your dildo or rabbit vibrator after fiercely masturbating with it in my empowered, free, liberal vagina after this guy?
Hypothetical for instance: “I like that my rabbit vibrator is dishwasher-safe because that’s the only sure way to wash all the Rendon off completely?”
