Over the past couple of weeks I've been looking south of the border and shaking my head at those idiotic Republicans and their plan to cut funding to planned parenthood, because apparently all they do is abortions! All the time!! And I wondered how the American public could let them get away with the lying and the bullshit.
But it's happening here too. Brad Trost, the Conservative twit from Saskatoon-Humboldt let slip that the Cons are cutting funding to Planned Parenthood here in Canada. This was followed by fierce denials from the Cons, but I wonder how Brad got that idea? Maybe because the Harper Conservatives have shown their contempt for women's issues time and time again. I was surprised they would think of going this far, but I really shouldn't be anymore. The difference between the Conservatives up here and the Republicans down south is becoming less discernible by the minute.
So for anyone who thinks the Republicans/Teabaggers are crazy loons and then turns around and votes Conservative up here, I just want to know, how do you deal with the cognitive dissonance? Your brain must be doing some incredibly acrobatic self-justification in order for you to be able to sleep at night.
You know what else is a great pick-up line? "I would never vote for that twat Stephen Harper or any of his fellow bible-thumping, homophobic, misogynistic brethren." That's music to my ears.
