(SeattlePI)   Paul Ryan laughs at the notion that Republicans are waging a war on women, and he has a binder full of witty comments to help prove his point. "Tomorrow, it's going to be a 'War on Left-Handed Irishmen'"   (blog.seattlepi.com) divider line 153

I once dated a left-handed Irishman. Just thinking about it makes me moist.

Paul Ryan can suck my withered old lady shanks.

"I don't understand it. That line KILLED in this morning's meeting of people on my payroll. I wonder why when I went to print my speech out the printer was overflowing with resumes?"

And left-handed Irishmen everywhere began to sweat nervously. Even those in Ireland.

The GOP can't back down. All they can do is keep cranking up the crazy.

Just another self-loathing Irishman.

/DRINK!

How to distract from the fact that your party keeps trying to pass that passively and actively impede women's rights:

1) Lift weights
2) Run fast
3) Left-handed Irishman
4) Award prizes to women who birth lots of children in a specified time, and kill the ones who don't

We're only up to #3 for now.
 
2012-10-21 08:34:09 AM  
I understand women vote with more in mind than their lady parts, but how in the hell can you vote for a group of assholes who have as much disdain for you as today's GOP?

There's no war on women. Look over there...dancing horses.

Sure. As soon as he's done running his hour-and-a-half marathon.

Go destroy another Homeless shelter you dicknut
 
2012-10-21 09:36:29 AM  
I believe that what ever the republicans say they mean the opposite. So when they say there is a war on left handed Irishmen that means they are out to only HELP LHIMen

"It is ridiculous to say that we want to destroy the social safety net in a war against the poor. We just want to slash food stamps, gut medicaid, destroy unemployment insurance, and get rid of welfare"

"It is ridiculous to say that we want to put women back in the kitchen in a war against women. We just want to prevent them from getting abortions, prevent laws guaranteeing equal pay, restrict their ability to receive contraception through their insurance, and make it harder to raise a kid while holding a job"

"It is ridiculous to say that we are a party only for the rich. We just want to remove the capital gains tax which greatly benefits those who make more than $1m a year, get rid of all those middle class tax deductions that you people get, and shift the tax burden so we can have more money"

"It is ridiculous to say that we are beholden to the military. We just want to prevent all defense spending cuts, start wars in Iran and Syria, and find ways to buy more engines for the single engine F35"
 
2012-10-21 09:40:45 AM  
That's just a load of stuff.
 
2012-10-21 09:40:49 AM  
Well if you try and pass a law making writing with your left hand illegal, you're damn right I'll call you on it.

Jesus, racism, and a misguided sense of economics.

Good luck getting a left-handed Irishman home in time to make supper, the pubs don't close nearly that early.
 
2012-10-21 09:47:11 AM  
While most of the GOP is full of sexist assholes and their stance on abortion is generally retarded, I hate the term "War on Women".

Especially considering it started because the Republicans wanted to stop the government from paying for birth control (not banning it, but just stopping free birth control).*

* I am 100% for there being free birth control, but it is retarded to act like you are entitled to it.

I remember watching Greg Giraldo roast Larry the Cable Guy a few years ago, specifically the point (one of many, I'm sure) where I believe his soul suffered a major crack in front of millions of people. In the middle of his bit he looked at Larry and cried out, "How the fark are you so POPU-LARRRRR!" (4:07 in the link, NSFW language, of course). It was played up for laughs, of course, but you'd have to be deaf not to hear the sincerity in that.

It's taking every bit of self respect I have not to have a Greg Giraldo moment regarding this current crop of Republicans.
 
2012-10-21 09:48:47 AM  
The War on Christmas should be the focus here.

That "gubbit betta pay for my birf control!" talking point has been debunked so many times that I'm just not in the mood to do it again. It's like trying to tell someone the earth is not flat.

If your paying for your health insurance.. its not free..
What the republicans are trying to do is make it possible for your employer to tell the insurance company not to provide it. Even if the employee wants it, and its cheaper for the insurance to provide it than to not provide it.
 
2012-10-21 09:52:51 AM  
So, Lefty McCitizen, you want to vote? OK just hop up on the table, put your legs in the stirrups, and I'll jam this hard plastic wand inside of you, so that we can examine your insides to see if you really are a citizen.

/don't worry it's "legitimate"
 
2012-10-21 09:53:16 AM  
Well, shiat, if there ain't no war on women-folk, why the hell would I vote for Republicans?

I get it! Biden is left-handed! Gosh, Mr Ryan that's quite witty. Now go DIAF or something.
 
2012-10-21 09:58:29 AM  
When you refuse to pay for a woman's birth control pills and abortions when she is attending a $40000 law school to get a job that will never pay the cost of her debt, you are waging war on her rights.
 
2012-10-21 10:00:17 AM  
Pfft, Republicans aren't raging a war on women. You can only really fight a war with people.

I'm a left-handed Irishman, you insensitive cl...oh, wait, wrong Web site for that meme.

As a left-handed Irishman, I'm really getting a kick out of the comments.

But for real, this is an excellent illustration of the potency that privilege has. It becomes so intrinsic to your weltanshauung that you don't even question its existence.

I was just trying to stir up shiat. I do stupid stuff when I am bored.
 
2012-10-21 10:07:46 AM  
Attention conservative women. If you think that Todd Akin, Rush Limbaugh, trans vaginal ultrasound or any of that other stuff is anomalous the the Republican mindset, Paul Ryan would like to disabuse you of that notion. You see, it isn't a war on your gender at all, it's just the way things are supposed to be. Better to just relax and enjoy it, OK hon?
 
2012-10-21 10:08:40 AM  
Looks like Ryan has got Romnesia.
 
2012-10-21 10:08:58 AM  
Urbandictionary.com doesn't have an entry for "left-handed Irishman".

I am disappoint. Sounds like a pretty funny move to slip to an unsuspecting woman voter, if you catch my drift.

Best post of the thread right here. The Republicans only stand for two things: bowing to the rich, and kowtowing to sad white guys who can't get laid unless they rape.
