More news below the fold...

Great round up.

The Supreme Court stuff is scary. But it's not liberals or women. It's liberals and women. And for the same reason. Wingers hate both.

It's easy to understand why they hate liberals. Liberals value the role of government. Wingers hate government, ergo, wingers hate liberals.

It's less clear why wingers hate women. Or actually they don't hate them all. Women who are willing to surrender their rights and choices and ambitions and lives to men, well those women are just fine. Keep them home. Keep them pregnant. Keep them on their knees. Wingers LOVE those kind of women.

Wingers hate women

because they are scared of us. We are the one thing they can't survive without...well besides food and water. They like sex too much of the hetero variety and who else would put the food and drink on the table for them...let alone cook it? We provide the bloodline for the great white race....

What!! WAIT!! My husband is coming home in a few hours and this house is a mess!! What am I doing sitting here enjoying myself?? I need to get busy cleaning, doing laundry, cleaning bathrooms and preparing his noon meal.....'cause you know that Republican of mine is going to want to eat when he gets home. We'll be waiting at the door with his lunch and the remote. I'll let you know which he grabs first. Byyyyeeeeeee

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

A - I always cover

the leftovers with saran wrap. What else would I use silly? The only thing on his mind will be Carolina basketball. I'm used to me.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.


You are one funny bunny!

It depends on where you live.

We happen to live in more progressive areas. Try hanging out down east. It's not as wingnuttery as some other states, but we do have some very conservative areas of this state.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
