Mitch McConnell: Feminist Scholar

We're coming to you today from the No Girlz Allowed Department here in the marbled halls of IM Central. NGA is a division of the They've Got Cooties Company, a wholly owned subsidy of Testosterone R Us, Inc.

Last week it was the Komen Foundation who decided that women, particularly poor women had had enough of the liberal commie health care and it was time stand up to the poverty lobby and say, look you need to buy your longevity in the free market just like everyone else who's not poor and can afford bulking up the insurance companies' bottom lines.

Well, that didn't work out so well for some reason. Maybe if Karen Handel had showed up to the press conference with a pink gun, things might have gone differently but she didn't and now the country is still saddled with the problem of having wimmens, and those wimmens having, you know, the issues that wimmens have.

OK, so this week we're going to have another go at dismantling  70 years of healthcare policy and who have we chosen to be our spokesman--you'll notice we said spokesman?  Why none other than Mitch McConnell.
Not satisfied with President Obama’s new religious accommodation, Republicans will move forward with legislation by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) that permits any employer to deny birth control coverage in their health insurance plans, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Sunday.
Now you're probably thinking, Mitch McConnell speaking on women's health issues? What, was Larry Flynt unavailable? Well, you have a point because asking Mitch McConnell to speak this topic is like asking Rick Santorum to explain the difference between prescription drug policy and a iPad, but what are you going to do? It's not like women willing to speak against their own best interests are falling out of the trees around here, unless you count Sarah Palin who's willing to talk about anything, but since no one really understands anything she says, it's not really the way to go.

So it's Mitch into the fray with legislation that is completely contrary to to the reality of 99% of the women in this country. See, this is what the republicans mean when they talk about the 1%.

Surely this won't pass? They can disapprove all they like of women insofar as sex is concerned, but there are plenty of women taking the Pill for reasons other than reproduction!
