This. Is. Important.
According to Stephen Colbert tonight, this is the link for a new GOP survey aimed at ‘younger voters.’ Oh sweet lord, the questions on this thing are hilarious and painful and EVERYONE ON TUMBLR NEEDS TO FILL THIS OUT RIGHT NOW
“Knowing that my son is gay prompted me to consider the issue from another perspective: that of a dad who wants all three of his kids to lead happy, meaningful lives with the people they love, a blessing Jane and I have shared for 26 years. I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for Will to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister. Ultimately, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God.”—Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), revealing his support for same-sex marriage in the Columbus Dispatch this morning.
“The GOP grows more and more unpopular with female voters seemingly every time one of its leaders gets in front of a microphone. Misogynist is as misogynist does. The GOP and its bloviating pundits don't like women and they are unable to hide it, nor do they seem to make much attempt to do so. Repeated use of the word "slut," the parsing of the word "rape" and their insistence that the vaginal canal has the amazing ability to play good sperm-bad sperm did them serious damage. To anger female voters in America is to tread on the tiger's tail. Women turn out in huge numbers, and they are well aware of how their bodies work and what they need. Any politician worth his or her weight in re-election would be absolutely insane to mess with them.”—Henry Rollins on the GOP: ‘Misogynist Is as Misogynist Does’
You'd Like To Be Paid A Living Wage?! STOP BEING A RADICAL BITCH.
Say you were a GOP Official in New Mexico & you’re listening to a 19 year old young woman testify in favor of raising the minimum wage.
What would you say?
Any of you correctly guess calling her a “radical bitch”? Anyone?
Because, as you can see, that is exactly what Executive Director of the Bernalillo County Republican Party in New Mexico, Steve Kush, called a 19 year old woman on Tuesday. The girl, a volunteer for labor advocacy group Working America was simply testifying in favor of raising the minimum wage before the county commission.
Apparently, simply advocating for a living wage makes you a RADICAL.
Oh, but it didn’t end there!
Apparently, you can’t advocate for a higher minimum wage for others if you are not making minimum wage yourself. Also, having a nice pair of boots automatically makes you well off. AND, she’s a girl, so Steve Kush just tunes out the words coming out of her mouth and focuses in on her looks.
Common decency to not ‘boo’ at someone speaking at a public forum? THAT’S NAZI TALK.
And finally, after numerous posts about being SO BORED and the public blowback that followed, Mr. Steve Kush issued an apology:
“[I] feel awful that I put my thumbs on the keypad of my smart phone.”
“My one regret is I said these things on a public forum. Next time, I call a woman a ‘radical bitch,’ I’ll make sure it’s not on the Internet.”
