One of the pluses of a regressive Republican party is that the bar for appearing to be a "sane" republican is pretty low.

"I'm a compassionate conservative. Unlike other Republican, I don't like rape."

She wants them not to talk about their views on rape.

There's absolutely no suggestion that they should, you know, CHANGE their views on rape. Just keep quiet about them.

First rule of legitimate rape is you don't talk about legitimate rape.

They should all just STFU and MYOB when it comes to any issues with a woman's body, right to choose or general reproductive health. That would solve so many problems.

So, we have a woman who is making violent threats, possibly against elected officials?

Why is she not in custody?

Well, perhaps she just thinks that it's unrealistic to expect that they will change their insane views on rape. But if they're shamed into at least not talking about their views, we can hope that they don't pass their misogyny on to their children.

That would be shamed into not speaking publically about their insane views, inside their own homes is an entirely different matter.

I love how a woman threatening to cut the tongues out of people is classified as "sane".

Don't get me wrong, I see her point, but if she's the sane one in the room, maybe it's time to disband the party.
 
2012-11-12 01:42:05 PM  
Karen Hughes is a smart, capable, talented person who was one of the few bright spots in the Bush White House, and probably not a war criminal, so she has that going for her.

Well, she did get out early on in his first term.

I'm betting some of the guys on team Cheney made strong suggestions that she go home and spend more time with her family.

That is exactly it. This isn't "You guys are a bunch of abhorrent retrograde cave men unsuitable for anything other than day labor" it's "Quit talking about what you really believe."

meh. Slow news day is slow. The kinds of women who are going to "vote with their lady parts" in the current Economic climate aren't going to vote GOP anyways, so just not frightening off the 40 or so percent of women you can win is all you need.

It won't do any good, Karen, because the GOP Faithful don't think they did anything wrong. They're gonna come back with more rape than ever next time because they weren't Conservative ENOUGH on it!

Please proceed, GOP....

For the reading impaired (all of FARKdom, evidently), she expressed a wish. She didn't make a threat.

If I say I wish you'd all die, that doesn't mean I am threatening to kill everyone.

The college-age daughters of many of my friends voted for Obama because they were completely turned off by Neanderthal comments like the suggestion of 'legitimate rape.'

If they were a bit more clear about what actually turned them on, maybe they wouldn't have to worry about that whole rape thing.

Kinda like when the Catholic church was shuffling priests around to keep them from molesting kids. Don't drum them out of the priesthood and turn them into authorities, COVER IT UP!

That's the problem Goldwater identified 50 years ago. Their views on rape are based on what they think their religion is telling them. They will not modify their opion of what they think God it telling them.

But I wouldn't ask them to change thier views on rape either. I would ask they not to impose their views on others though.

All these dramatic predictions of a splintered Republican Party are overblown. It's far more likely the Democratic Party will be the one to split.

Look at this example by Karen Hughes -- the Republican Party is big on reinforcement and discipline. They'll figure out where the new boundaries of acceptable discourse lie, then they'll evict all of the squishy 'RINOs'. Even if the party shrinks down to the point of you being able to drown it in a bathtub.

When the Democrats will run the table against an ineffective opposition, you'll see the traditionally fractious Democratic coalition break up. The traditional liberals will start to howl why they can't have a piece instead of being the party's permanent doormat. Labor will want something for all of their GOTV operations over the years.

I just think it's most likely we'll have a smaller, regional GOP and two parties that used to be the Democratic Party. Due to the Electoral College design that resists multiple parties, one will evaporate pretty quickly.

That's been the complaint all along. Akin wasn't ostracized for his views - just his tactlessness in expressing them so openly & honestly. For every honest asshole like Akin, there are hundreds who believe the same thing but keep their mouths shut or use vague buzzwords to describe their "family values."

Akin may be an asshole, but he was at least an honest one - you can do business with that guy, because you know what you're getting. The reason Romney wasn't elected was because it was painfully farking obvious that he'd say whatever it took to get elected, and he was about as honest as a used car salesman trying to move a lemon off his lot. No one took him seriously because he's a bullshiat artist, nothing more - works great in the business world, but not so much when the actual lives of millions of people depend on what you believe and how you act.
 
2012-11-12 02:12:13 PM  
Ms. Hughes, the problem isn't really that they made barbaric comments about rape out loud... the problem is that my former party chose representatives who hold those barbaric BELIEFS.

She essentially is complaining that people found out what those candidates believed and voted against them... which is EXACTLY how representative democracy/republics are supposed to work. How about you try suggesting the party farking field some candidates who aren't bronze-age cretins, eh?

The sad part is, if they can string together six weeks or so without talking about rape, thousands and thousands of people out there will forget about this whole thing and go back to voting Republican.

Also, her language is vile in any context and makes me feel like she's just as dumb and cruel as any male politician. If a guy said he wanted to "personally cut out the tongue of any woman" who talked about something, I think he might hear about it later.

Now now, Bush was positively left-wing compared to the barbaric retards who compromise the greater part of the pool of Republican legislators. Not that he was left wing, mind you, just that the batshiat crazy inmates are in charge of the asylum now. Bush is almost a RINO by current standards.
