The Asshole Monologues

Good to see that America's homegrown Taliban are still rolling strong. When will these uppity broads learn that gubmint buildings are not acceptable venues for spouting anatomically correct terms? Sheesh. Next time, Rep. Brown will know better, and use "pooter" or "vajayjay". Penises, should the need, um, arise to refer to them, should be called "tallywackers" or "beaver cleavers".

This part was just priceless:

Democratic Rep. Barb Byrum was also blocked from addressing the Republican-controlled legislature Thursday.

The House forbid Byrum from introducing her amendment to the abortion bill, which would have banned men from getting a vasectomy unless they could provide proof that it was a medical emergency.

"If we truly want to make sure children are born, we would regulate vasectomies," Byrum said Thursday.

Brown and Byrum were both silenced from speaking on the legislature’s final day of session before its summer break.

That sounds about right. Of course these abortion bills are about nothing so much as controlling women's reproductive rights, while leaving men's untouched. Seems fair.

Not sure what these people are aiming for in the long run -- an almost comically oppressive Saudi-style Assbackwards-stan, where women aren't allowed to drive or vote, rape victims instead of their attackers are punished, and hamburgers eat people; or a Handmaid's Tale dystopia.

Considering that 99% of these stupid bills are proposed and passed by liver-spotted pervs who couldn't get laid at Mardi Gras with a truckload of beads and 55-gallon drums of Red Bull and Grey Goose, and their dried-up sob sister enablers, either scenario is manifestly possible.

Yes, folks, your modern Republican party -- taking you back to the 1870s, one bill at a time.

Well, bearing in mind that these are the people's local representatives, it follows that vast stretches of Michigan have been fucking their first cousin without a condom for too many generations now. Time to put a rubber on that thing, folks.
