The birth control controversy infuriates me

This is the very definition of American Taliban.

“If the president does not reverse the Department’s attack on religious freedom, then the Congress, acting on behalf of the American people and the Constitution we are sworn to uphold and defend, must,” Boehner said. “This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country cannot stand, and will not stand.”

Keep in mind, the “freedom” involved here is an insurance company’s “freedom” to refuse to cover birth control. Ignoring the fact that you’d think pro-lifers should love birth control thanks to its favorable effect on abortion rates, what chaps my ass is that if “religious freedom” was a legitimate complaint, then insurance companies would also be allowed to deny people STD medication, refuse to cover gays, and a host of other nonsense.

Pelosi launches campaign to Stop Colbert, and the DISCLOSE Act

Remember how the whole point of the Colbert Super PAC was to push for campaign finance reform? It’s working.

“Stephen Colbert used to be my friend. I even signed the poor baby’s cast when he hurt his hand,” Pelosi deadpans. “But since the day he started his super PAC, taking secret money from special interests, he’s been out of control, even using his super PAC to attack my friend, Newt Gingrich. And if that weren’t enough, I hear he doesn’t even like kittens.”

By god. The bastard. We must get this DISCLOSE Act passed!!
