Here is a funny thing. In 2008, your Editrix believed — and said to people, with her mouth! — that Mike Huckabee, the kindly preacher who didn’t seem to actively want to skin and eat the poor, would be the greatest threat to the Dems if nominated. Since then, of course, he has become as actively nutsoid as the rest of our friendly Republican candidates. Case in point! Now Mike Huckabee has said a thing, with his mouth, to the winter meeting of the RNC. And that thing is that … well, every time we try to paraphrase it makes even less sense. So, here you go:
“If the Democrats want to insult women by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it,” he said. “Let us take this discussion all across America because women are far more than the Democrats have played them to be.”
“And women across America need to stand up and say ‘Enough of that nonsense,’” he added.
Enough of that nonsense indeed, Mike Huckabee. IN-DEED.
First, can we point out that “Uncle Sugar” is gross, and you are basically saying women are being molested by their creepy uncle, and also they are gold-digging “sugarbabies” or “whores” if they disagree with you on the value of government programs in American life? Mike Huckabee, that’s on the verge of being rather rude!
Second, women who need a prescription each month for birth control may indeed not be able to “control their libido.” Fuck, buncha hot-ass nymphos out there just cold screwing every sad alcoholic under a bridge they can find, because they cannot. Stop. Fucking! And we say, GURRRRL, GET IT! FUCK THAT SAD OLD BRIDGE MAN! Spread the love!
Or they may be married women (the minute 77 percent of married women of childbearing age who use contraception, of course) practicing responsible family planning. You know, that thing where families only have children they can afford. We see a lot of comment from the right about “personal responsibility” and “welfare queens” (and lately “golddiggers”) when women don’t practice responsible family planning, or have the nerve to get a divorce after having responsibly born their children in wedlock. It is almost as if they would like to have it both ways!
In conclusion, we are not one of those delicate flowers who runs around screaming YOU HAVE INSULTED US WE SHALL SHOUT ABOUT THE OUTRAGE AND FAN OURSELVES AND ALSO FAINT. But you’re quite right. Women are insulted. We’re pretty sure the Democrats aren’t the Real Insulter, though. Maybe you and OJ Simpson could go and detective it.
