Abortion: not a women's issue? So says Repub

Posted By on Thu, Jul 8, 2010 at 2:01 PM

Louisiana's whore-hopping U.S. senator, David Vitter, was ambushed by the press again today on the girlfriend-slashing aide he kept on staff until his past was outed. Vitter has insisted the aide didn't work on "women's affairs," as has been reported. Yes, he worked on abortion, but that is not a women's issue in the eyes of David Vitter.

This would be funny if it wasn't such an accurate encapsulation of Republican politics. (Not that it matters, but records show Vitter is also a liar.)

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
