Does the word "grassroots" really apply to a party hosted by "models, fashion editors and socialites"? If so, what political fundraiser does that word not apply to?

I'm sure there are organizations that stand for worse that have donated to either campaign--evangelical organizations for example, stand for much worse than dudes dancing in their undies.

Grassroots just means not controlled by traditional political actors. If they aren't connected to/controlled by a campaign, or PAC, or some other political/propaganda group, it doesn't matter that they're rich/elite.

Likewise, a collection of poor idiots who previously never participated in politics *cough cough tea party cough* can be non-grassroots if it is controlled by political actors, like oh, say...Fox News, or a horde or Republican strategists, campaign staff, and long time political insiders.

Absolutely right, I'm not just a gorgeous, muscular hunk of manliness for people to lust over.

Specifically, I'm not gorgeous, muscular, particularly manly or a frequent object of lust. But I can hope!

I do love the GOP form of equivalency...

The GOP has chicken-hawks chomping at the bit for a war with Iran.... but the Dems have minority donors that may, or may not, include jewish-american 'and' arab-american donors!

The SCOTUS decided on abortion years and years ago. This "war on women" stuff is complete fluff. The right wing nuts can no more repeal abortion rights than the left wing nuts can survive without "Big Oil." The dross that passes for political debate in this country is such bullsh*t.

And yet, over the last year Republicans across the country have been pushing for laws that at best make getting an abortion extremely difficult and at worse treat women like they're in The Handmaid's Tale. Lest you forget the legally mandated transvaginal ultrasound thing a few months ago.

Oh hey, it's the false equivalency of the week! I haven't had this much fun since getting in an argument with a bootstrappy acquaintance over whether calling someone a "teabagger" was like/as bad as calling someone a "n****r."

The problem is that the right can try to make abortion so difficult to get and so dehumanizing that women won't get one.

And, as I understand it, many people on the left want to reduce exactly that dependence on "Big Oil".

Because a new SCOTUS couldn't reverse a previous SCOTUS decision, right? That never happens, right Plessy?

It isn't fluff, and abortion rights is one of the issues that needs constant vigilance. Ever since Nixon figured out it could be used as a wedge issue to drive Democrats apart it has been one of the more divisive issues of our time. Those of us who support the right of a woman to choose must attempt to fight every time that right is restricted.

Heck not just abortion, but access to basic birth control as well. While pro choice I can understand the reasoning behind some of the moral arguments against abortion, I will never understand the GOP wanting to restrict access to something as universally accepted as birth control. Well I mean not understand a reason which isn't draconian or opressive that is.

Has that led to a decrease in abortions? Or, as the CDC posits, is it RU486 that has led to the decrease in surgical abortions? It seems to me a great deal of political emotion and energy is being expended to no purpose by both sides. Let's argue about guns while we're at it. It's a lot easier than actually taking the difficult decisions that will solve the significant problems facing our country.

Meanwhile, the statute of limitations clock is running, and it looks like the con men of Wall Street are going to skate. The foot-dragging has worked like a charm.

Keep that laser-like focus on the big issues of our day, Headso. The Fark Democratic Committee© is doing a fine job, as usual. And the Republicans are wasting our time blabbering about this stuff while Rome burns.

Because everyone knows it's the Democrats who want to obscure any progress on prosecuting wrongdoing from the 2008-9 collapse in favor of social legislation favored by religious leaders. The major success of the Occupy Wall Street movement was is getting all those bankers freed up to protest abortion clinics.

That's the spirit in which the laws were passed.

It seems to me a great deal of political emotion and energy is being expended to no purpose by both sides.

Except that like a dozen red states have passed laws attacking abortion rights in the past 2 years... The people who are ok with legalized abortion are not the ones constantly "bringing it up", I'd be perfectly happy never to hear about it as a topic again if it remains legal and accessible.
