Late Night FDL: New Santorum Strategy? Some Things Are Hard to Swallow

 

Since it’s GOP primary night, time for gratuitously juvenile, R-rated Late Night.

This nifty little video points out that if conservatives think fornication is just about making babies, they are missing out on a lot of action. I’m surprised One Million Moms, Focus on the Family, NOM and others aren’t up in arms over this product, which turns an appetizer into dinner, providing an assist for anyone who may not enjoy the flavor, while eliminating the opportunity for sperm and ovum to unite.

We understand that, for some, the tastes associated with fellatio can make the act less than enjoyable. And so, five years ago we came up with an idea. An idea that could change the way some people viewed the taste of semen and any negative effects it has on their oral sex experience. That’s why Masque™ was developed. We believe we’re not only making quality products to enhance personal intimacy, we’re changing the way people think and talk about foreplay around the world.

And according to the Arizona ACLU, new legislation proposed

could give employers the right to fire women who use birth control. The bill, which sailed right through the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee, grants employers the right to ask for proof that contraceptives are being taken for non-contraceptive reasons.

Arizona House Bill 2625, authored by Majority Whip Debbie Lesko, R-Glendale, would permit employers to ask their employees for proof of medical prescription if they seek contraceptives for non-reproductive purposes, such as hormone control or acne treatment.

“I believe we live in America. We don’t live in the Soviet Union,” Lesko said. “So, government should not be telling the organizations or mom and pop employers to do something against their moral beliefs.”

And truly if the only reason the Religious Rightwing can come up with for sex is making babies, then seriously, we are fucked. And not in a good way.

Nothing like the Republican principle of keeping big government out of your private business and maintaining that freedom. Wait….what?

It’s hard for me to see why Republicans think this is a winning issue. They must know that only a maximum of one third of all voters would support such wingnutty sewage, (actually in this case I think it will be much fewer). I mean, most of these people have college degrees where I know they had to be at least competent at arithmetic.


DrDick | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:09 pm 4

Lisa!

I really don’t think we want to encourage these whackaloons to fuck anymore than they already do. As it is they breed like rabbits and they start young (highest teen birth rates in the country!).


Lisa Derrick | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:10 pm 5

This just in: Santorum takes Alabama.

Question of the GOP primary season: To whom will Ron Paul give his one delegate (from the Virgin Islands)?

No. No. No. Republicans want to keep government out of private businesses, so it has more time to monitor your bedroom.

Have to agree that an anti-sex platform is not a winner in any demographic I know of, outside of the Catholic priests and nuns (and even there it is kind of shaky).

When nuns want sex they dress up as altar boys and hang out at the rectory.

Yep. Especially if you throw a prepubescent boy into the mix.
(Yeah, ugly thing to say and I would never make light of it but in this case it’s the simple truth)

It will be interesting to see who takes Ron Paul’s Virgin-itty

The GOP beating the sex issue is turning off people who otherwise would vote Republican because of taxes, jingoism, etc. Oooops.

Thanks Kelly! The past 24 hours have been lots of writing about sex, between this and the Ohio boner pills bill, plus Preparation H pulling out of Rush.

The contest now is between Newt and Rick. If Mitt is very cautious and keeps his mouth shut, he may be able to stand on the sidelines and watch the carnage.

Well, that would certainly be a first.

Always was. No way that the deep South was voting for the magic underwear (Devil worshipers!) and Paul has less appeal than Newt does down there.

Hey Lisa, why is your platform so buggy? The reply button has always come and gone when the page loads but now I’m losing whole pieces of individual comments sometimes and have to refresh the page to get them back. Know what’s up? Is it something the FDL team can sort?


DrDick | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:25 pm 19

Except for everyone else in the GOP race, he has absolutely the most incompetent campaign I have ever seen for national office. Makes McCain’s clusterfuck look like the epitome of professionalism.

I’ll let them know that the reply button disappears and reappears on reload. It’s something I’m used to, actually. But now that you’ve got it as well, I’ll def drop them a line!

I heard some news stooge today claim that “the ultimate nominee will ‘break his neck’ moving back to the center for the general and I just had to laugh. It was some clown from Salon or Politico or some such and he seemed very sure of his opinions but I don’t think any of the four left are capable of “moving back to the center”. Even a “center” that during the Reagan years would have been far too extreme right to be taken seriously by anybody. Santorum can’t keep his mouth shut about gayz and woman parts, Romney can’t stop bringing up how very rich, (and therefore deserving), he is and Gingrich can’t shut the f*ck up about anything. Ron Paul isn’t a factor.

It has always done that for me as well. It also randomly blanks out the text of other people’s comments, though they come back when I refresh.

I thonk Romney might be inclined to inch that way, but I do not think the GOP base will let him, and everybody else hates him (though not as much as the rest of these assclowns).


cwaltz | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:41 pm 26
In response to Margaret @ 23

Santorum and Paul should provide an interesting dynamic since Santorum is on the record as opposing libertarianism within the GOP.

In June 2011, Santorum said he would continue to “fight very strongly against libertarian influence within the Republican party and the conservative movement.”

Is it any wonder that Paul favors Romney.


Kelly Canfield | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:41 pm 27

It’s like some kind of Klown version of “Men Who Stare at Goats.”

Cloudbursting!


Margaret | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:42 pm 28
In response to DrDick @ 25

Oh sure, Romney will try no doubt. He represents the “sane” wing of the party after all. I just don’t think he’ll be able to stop bringing up how very rich he is. I mean, even after the mini firestorm over the comment about knowing NASCAR owners, he blithely brings up his intimate relationship with football team owners. Out of all of them, I think he would try the hardest but be the least capable of doing it, excepting possibly Santorum. No way Santorum ever appears remotely sane.


DrDick | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:45 pm 29

I think that pretty much captures the spirit of the GOP race, except they are headed over a cliff.

Thanks Lisa. Yeah, I don’t do late night much when you’re hosting because of the bugginess. I hope it can be fixed because you’re a wonderful writer and person!

Buggy or not though, it’s time for me to go to bed. Oya!

In response to Margaret @ 28

I am not sure that he will even try. If his campaign staff are even marginally competent (which remains to be demonstrated), they won’t let him or at least won’t let him go very far. He is already on shaky ground with the base and if he loses them, he is toast in November.


oldgold | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:49 pm 35

In Alabama 49% of working women voted for Santorum. Sigh.

Ummm. This is anti-abortion Ron Paul we are talking about here. They make those kinds of claims, but a lot of them are on the morality police as well. Bottom line is that libertarians are stupid, crazy, and lie like a rug.


jurassicpork | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:51 pm 38

In political news, Santorum creeps out from “down there.”

On the personal front, sometimes lightning does strike twice. A liberal/progressive blogger who’s been in the trenches for over 7 years needs your help.

Romney is spending all this money, and it doesn’t seem to make a dent in the extremist vote. It’s funny, all those rich guys throwing money down a rathole, unable to buy any of the elections.

Mittens never had a prayer in the deep South because of the magic undies and his record in Massachusetts.

Santorum is totally the Christian version of the Taliban.

Ron Paul is a bit of a hypocrite though since he clearly cares about what goes on in the bedroom since he was for DOMA and opposes choice for women. That being said, he at least pretends that he might support individual decisions on a state by state basis. Santorum wants to force people to adhere to his personal belief system.


DrDick | Tuesday March 13, 2012 08:57 pm 43

Time for me to toddle off. Take care all.

That’s what I believe will happen. Will the Evangelicals swallow hard and back Mitt ? Will the Catholics ?
