My “Extreme Uterus” ~ Ant Bethany

I read the following article/blog about McCain’s take on healthcare and the callousness that seems to be creeping into is public persona. I don’t think McCain is a nice guy. My Ex too, married a new breeder 3 months after our divorce was final. She’s had 3 babies in 4 years and has the back fat to show for it so I don’t feel bitter anymore.

But the emotional detachness that is needed to switch from one family to another in a small space of time is an eyebrow raiser. I am begining to see a much clearer picture of John McCain and it isn’t of a man worthy of the White House. John McCain showed his ass, excuse the expression, in last night’s debate. He barely seemed to be able to contain his rage and disgust at Barak Obama. I sat at the edge of my seat, unsure of what would happen, and understanding that it could happen. His eye rolling and scoffing during Obama’s turn to speak should have earned him a smack to the side of the head. I don’t tolerate that from my 8 yr son. What a poor example he sets.

 I lost count how many times he interrupted Barak and even the Moderator Bob Schieffer. That was jaw dropping. John McCain seems to lack tact and compunction. But John’s supressed rage worries me, and to have his finger on the button scares me. We need a cool head in the White House, not an aged senior Senator with anger management issues. (Did John McCain remind anyone else of a Wallace and Gromit character last night, when he tried to look friendly.. “My friends……” (insert creepy smile) )

I know men like this. The thin veneer of politness. The emotional explosion at home. The rumors. Maybe he lashes out at Cindy and calls her a “Cunt” in a nice way, or it is a pet name for Cindy, perhaps it is PTSD… who knows. Maybe that is why Cindy started taking pills.  Heck, I’d take pills too if my husband verbally abused me. At this point I would start to feel sorry for Cindy McCain, and then I remember that she used her charitable organization as a front for essentially drug buying under false pretenses to support her addiction. Cindy had founded the  American Voluntary Medical Team, a nonprofit that sent volunteer doctors and nurses to provide free medical care in Third World countries and U.S. disaster zones. Cindy McCain served as president, operating out of her family’s business, a giant Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship in Phoenix owned by her father.  Her addiction to Vicodin and Percocet eventualoly led to an investigation by the DEA and stealing folks identities that were working for her charity. Maybe being investigated with the Keating 5 gang would have put me through the ringer too. But to under go a DEA investigation and she was “facing federal charges of obtaining “a controlled substance by misrepresenting, fraud, forgery, deception or subterfuge.” Experts say she could have faced a 20-year prison sentence.”

How did that white girl get off scot free?  We all know how.. I won’t even write about it! LOL..

McCain Says Women’s Health is

“Extreme”

Cecile Richards

I about fell out of my chair when I heard John McCain say this during the presidential debate last night:

“Just again, the example of the eloquence of Sen. Obama. He’s health for the mother. You know, that’s been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That’s the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, ‘health.'”

Since when did women’s health become extreme?

What’s really extreme here is that John McCain doesn’t understand that women’s health matters.

What John McCain said last night, in front of millions of viewers, was belittling to women. He not only mocked Barack Obama for supporting women’s health, he mocked women across the country. The debate last night was just the most vivid example of what we’ve known all along: John McCain is out of touch on women’s health.

The simple fact is that we need a president who wants to protect and promote women’s health, not ridicule it. If John McCain doesn’t understand that, then he’s not prepared to govern this country.

Remember, this is not the only example where John McCain doesn’t get it when it comes to women’s health.

Just a couple months back, McCain had the deer-in-the-headlights look, and couldn’t answer whether he thought it was fair that insurance companies that cover Viagra should also cover birth control.

And, remember the time when McCain was asked whether he thought contraceptives helped stopped the spread of HIV? McCain’s response, “You’ve stumped me.”

And there’s more. Let’s count the ways that John McCain is out of touch on women’s health and women’s rights

*He’s voted 125 times against women’s health.
*He wants to overturn Roe v. Wade.
*He opposes funding to prevent unintended and teen pregnancies.
*He opposes requiring health care plans to cover birth control.
*He opposes equal pay legislation, saying it wouldn’t do “anything to help the rights of women.”
*He’s proposed a health care plan that will be worse for women.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, gets it. Obama talked about commonsense proposals to prevent unintended pregnancy. He talked about a woman, along with her family and her doctor, deciding what is best for her healthcare.

The simple fact is that Barack Obama is a passionate advocate for women’s rights, and has a long and consistent record of standing up for women’s health care. As president, he will improve access to quality health care for women, support and protect a woman’s right to choose, support comprehensive sex education to keep our young people healthy and safe, and invest in prevention programs, including family planning services and breast cancer screenings.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Women voting for John McCain is like chickens voting for Col. Sanders.
