What the Hell are the Republicans thinking?!

I know I said I was going to take a brief hiatus from posting for a while, but then I saw some news that just pissed me off.

According to the Raw Story, several amendments to the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CAINA) proposed by Democrats to exempt family members and innocent bystanders from prosecution under the law (all of the amendments failed) were altered by House Judiciary Committe Chairman James Sensenbrenner, Jr. to make it sound like the Democrats were trying to protect "sexual predators."

That's right folks, standing up for reproductive freedom means that you love child molestors. Expect the new meme to be propagated by all the usual suspects (the Oxycontin Junkie, Sean "I'm gonna pound Democrats" Hannity, Ann "Whack anyone who disagrees with me" Coulter, Michael "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder" Savage and all the rest of the right-wing hatemongers) - all cheered on by the "liberal" media.

Even worse, when asked by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), the ranking Democrat in the House Rules Committee, why he perpetrated such an outrage, his response was "You don't like what we wrote about your amendments, and we don't like what you said about our bill."

I guess the "tu quoque" fallacy means nothing to Sensenbrenner, who apparently feels that the Grand Thuggery Party's "mandate" (with Jeff Gannon) gives him the perogative to act like a spoiled child whenever he sees or hears anything not on his list of approved speech.

The adults are in charge, indeed.

One can just hear the sound of the horses of this army of true believers under the flag of Our Caesar George W. Christ as he prepares to cross his own Rubcon, trampling underfoot anyone who dares to raise a voice in protest.

Alea iacta est.
