BARBIE'S FIRST ABORTION

And remember, that "war on women" was entirely invented by the liberal media to bash Republicans.

I think Wendy Davis confuses Republicans.

She's bootstrappy as all get out, so it's hard to attack her as lazy or elitist, but she's also actually pushing progressive goals in Texas, where Republicans are mostly used to doing whatever they want and not having anyone say a word about it.

They're going to default to sexist attacks, which is going to backfire.

Don't forget the biggest reason. She's a woman.

'Abortion Barbie' isn't any worse than 'Caribou Barbie' and it's far more more accurate.

It....It doesn't even make any sense! Hamface Jr. aborted his own joke!

Come on Republicans you are better than this, I expect you to already be labeling her a "slut" or saying she should "shut and and go into the kitchen where she belongs".

Maybe that'll be tomorrow.

While I agree that labeling any woman in politics a "Barbie" is misogynistic, I will say... no one applied that label to Sarah Palin until she started saying objectively stupid things.

Wendy Davis has yet to put a foot wrong and hasn't done anything to indicate that she's anything but educated, articulate and passionate. The Barbie label here really is just because she's a woman.

RedState columnists are top-shelf, high-quality, pure, undiluted asshole. It's not even about "conservative values" any more with these pricks.  It's about being the most insufferable cock-faces known to the interwebs.

Pssst. There is an actual product called "Malibu Barbie." See how that rhymes with "Caribou Barbie?" Thats the joke.

Unless there really is a "Contortionist Barbie" or "Small Portionist Barbie" it really isn't the same or as funny.

I think the best way to destroy the Republican party these days is to just hand those idiots a mic and let 'em talk for an hour.  they manage to pretty much offend damn near everyone without any prompting at all.

honestly guys...it's not that the Democrats are so great...it's that the Republicans are so horribly bad at everything that the choice is so obviously simple for even the dumbest of voters.

As someone who does not use or follow anyone on twitter, I am just baffled by the impulse to tweet such idiotic tripe. It's hard for me not to chalk it up to drunken impulse or plain ol' bitterness and hatred. Clearly you can get your point across more eloquently... what is preventing you from realizing you are about to be a boorish buffoon?

I remember when Twitter was first launched. A co-worker of mine... a huge technology hawk (not that I am not one as well) was touting the benefits of 'information' being so freely and easily dispensed. While I understood his enthusiasm, I was well aware of the stream of mental diarrhea that would commence. I suppose he was focusing on the 'valuable' information being transmitted via twitter to the exclusion of the nonsense whereas I was looking that the whole twitter universe... but I think while we both may have been right, my point has been greatly realized.

you don't understand - from inside the GOP echo chamber, what this idiot said was completely acceptable.  Hell, its even expected.  its only when comments like this leak out of that semi-sealed environment that normal people get a glimpse of what it's like inside the loonie bin that is the Republican party these days.  that's why he was able to send out that sort of thing via twitter.  in his view (and that of most Republicans) those such comments are just how they communicate amongst themselves.

Well, that and the fact that Sarah Palin was an actual beauty queen.  And honestly, considering how nasty and pugnacious Palin is in her own rhetoric ("Don't Retreat.  Reload!") it's hard to be sympathetic when Farkers cross the line with her.

Is anyone keeping a list of all these stupid things the GOP are saying? Maybe Drew would let you use some of his bandwidth and host that list on this domain somewhere. Then, come election time, we give the url to all of our friends to remind them of the arrogance and stupidity of the GOP so we can clean house.

Here's what scares me - that at the end of the day, it's not that both sides are bad, it's just that both sides are owned. Which might mean the reason the GOP implosion seems so script-perfect is that it IS scripted in a sense.

I had no problem voting for Obama, hell he's been the best Republican president of my lifetime. Including Reagan, peace be upon him.  Honestly I think that's what really pisses them off - Because the overton window has shifted so far right you have a Democratic president proposing herigate foundation based legislation that they know is going to be very successful, because it was proposed in an era when the current streak of anti-intellectualism wasn't quite as pervasive in the party.

Its kind of amazing; not too long ago, the GOP presented viable policies in response to Democrats' ideas.
