Republican Douchebags of the Week

Too many to limit it just to the Great State.

-- Rick Santorum instructs Puerto Rico to speak English in order to become a state. There is no federal law requiring this. Though 30 states have passed laws declaring such. Including Mississippi and Kansas, but not Texas.

-- Speaking of Mississippi, Kansas, and Puerto Ricans: at the NCAA tournament yesterday, the Southern Miss band chanted "where's your green card" at a Kansas State Puerto Rican player during their first-round game. Puerto Ricans are born US citizens just like the folks in Mississippi. Though if we had to pick between the two, that would be easy and fast. (Two words: J-Lo's booty.)

-- Let me simply say once again that I despise Greg Abbott with the heat of a thousand suns and leave it at that.

-- Arizona's own version of the Blunt Amendment declares that birth control is not a good enough reason for women to be taking contraceptives.

Women in Arizona trying to get reimbursed for birth control drugs through their employer-provided health plan could be required to prove that they are taking it for a medical reason such as acne, rather than to prevent pregnancy.

A bill nearing passage in the Republican-led Legislature allows all employers, not just religious institutions, to opt out of providing contraceptive coverage when doing so would violate their religious or moral beliefs.

Keep on digging that hole, GOP.

-- Not content to condemn only women for what he perceives as their sexual depravity, Rick Santorum declares War on Pornography.

"America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography," Santorum's official website reads. "Pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking."

The former Pennsylvania senator states that, "as a parent, I am concerned about the widespread distribution of illegal obscene pornography and its profound effects on our culture."

Santorum criticized the Obama administration for turning "a blind eye ... to the scourge of pornography" and for refusing to enforce obscenity laws.

"If elected President, I will appoint an Attorney General who will do so," Santorum writes. "While the Obama Department of Justice seems to favor pornographers over children and families, that will change under a Santorum Administration."

There goes the middle-aged Republican angry white male vote. What's left for him to lose? Not Texas. He's surging here.

My gay friends have to be right: there is a freak inside this guy just crying to be let out.
