New Hampshire Republicans to Women: FUCK YOU

This makes me mad:

Until July 1, a low-income New Hampshire woman paid an average of $5 to fill a birth control pill prescription at any of the state’s six Planned Parenthood clinics. She might have even gotten the birth control for free, depending on her poverty level.

But since the New Hampshire Executive Council voted to cancel the state’s contract with Planned Parenthood, a woman now has to pay anywhere from $40 to over $100 for birth control pills at a regular pharmacy.

Councilor Raymond Wieczorek of Manchester added that he opposed funding for birth control and condoms altogether.

“If they want to have a good time, why not let them pay for it?”

Is there anywhere ever, ever ,ever where denying women access to birth control measures has reduced pregnancies and/or adoptions? If there is, please tell me. Because prior to social conservative conventional wisdom giving the big “fuck you” to women does jack shit to promote their jihad against women’s reproductive choice.

“We can’t even provide patients with antibiotics for urinary tract infections or STDs anymore,” said Jennifer Frizzell, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. She said Planned Parenthood has had to turn away 20 to 30 patients a day who are showing up to refill their prescriptions.

“We have to send them away with a prescription knowing that without insurance, they have to pay the full cost of that at a local pharmacy, and many patients have told us they’re not gonna have the money in their budget to afford to fill those prescriptions.”

Because the best way to “save” fetuses is to slowly kill the mothers.

I’ll have a longer post later. I just wanted to put this out there now.

Gregg Withdrawls From Commerce Consideration

Last night Judd Gregg withdrew his name from consideration for Secretary of Commerce. Technically this isn’t newsworthy because I’m blogging about it today rather than last night, but last night I was out drinking until 6am and Senator Gregg was a douchebag and didn’t feel like waiting till today. Bastard.

Anyways, the enthusiasm fro Gregg’s ascent to department of commerce faded as soon as I heard his replacement would be a republican. After all, what benefit would his selection generate from democrats, let alone progressives? And with Gregg retiring after this term anyways, appointing him to a cabinet level position has lost all potential benefit. Even Fox News said as much.

Gregg to Commerce? 60 Seats Within Our Reach? Wait for it…

According to the Huffington Post, there’s a good chance the Obama adminstration will try to convince Judd Gregg to become the next Commerce Secretary.

Why is this important?

Well, because Gregg is a senator from New Hampshire. A REPUBLICAN senator from New Hampshire, a state that happens to have a very democratic Governor. Meaning that if Gregg were to leave his seat, the Govenor of New Hampshire would be free to appoint the 60th Democrat to the senate.

What a brilliant idea! Gosh gee Willis, I’m surprised no one suggested that idea earlier.

Don’t blame the Wilder/Bradley Effect: Debunking the racist New Hampshire Voters Theory

With the media and the Obama campaign struggling to find an explanation for Obama’s stunning campaign collapse, both are grasping at straws. Rather than just admitting that they were wrong, they’re sadly turning to…the race card. Or the Bradley/Wilder Effect. However if both parties would just look at the facts they would see that race was not a factor. So what makes me so sure? Easy…
