The hypocrisy of libertarians like Rand Paul and Ron “Pepaw” Paul amuses me greatly. You see, they speak of liberty, and freedom, but they don’t mean liberty and freedom for everyone. They mean it for themselves and for other (white) men.
In their minds, women aren’t entitled to drink the sweet nectar of freedom from the Free Market Fountain. I’m not exactly sure why this is — maybe it’s because they don’t trust anything that bleeds once a month but won’t die.
In any event, there’s something seriously wrong with a person who cries about being detained by the TSA because he doesn’t want some union worker in plastic gloves all up in his personal space patting him down for oversized lotions and anal bombs, and then is outraged that he missed his flight to Washington, D.C. where, according to his Facebook page, he was scheduled to give a speech at the March for Life Candlelight Vigil for Unfertilized Eggs and Zygotes: “Today I will speak to the March for Life in Washington DC. A nation cannot long endure without respect for the fundamental right to Life. Our Liberty depends on it.”
What is WRONG with these people?
Here’s more from Media Matters:
“Neither Walgreens, nor its in-store healthcare clinics, Take Care Clinics, offer pap smears or breast exams,” Take Care Clinic spokeswoman Lauren Nestler told Media Matters after being emailed the segment.
The clinics, which are a subsidiary of Walgreens, offer health services like flu vaccines and blood pressure screening at 350 Walgreens stores.
Fox & Friends’ false claim about pap smears is the latest in a series of attempts by conservatives to dismiss the importance of Planned Parenthood for women’s health services. As Steve Benen noted, “Republicans, like their cable news network, would like the public to believe the preventative health services provided by Planned Parenthood aren’t especially necessary or worthy of funding, since they’re readily available everywhere — as if every block in America has a Starbucks, an ATM, and screenings for cervical cancer. Except, that’s ridiculous, Fox News lying about it, ironically, only helps underscore the value of Planned Parenthood clinics.”
Do these morons know what a vagina is? What a uterus it is? Maybe they really don’t know what goes on down there, and that’s why they are so afraid to say the word “uterus” or even think about uteri. Maybe they simply don’t know what it takes to maintain them (and I’m not talking waxing and vagazzling – either.)
I think we need to call for a “National Introduce Your Vagina to a Republican Day.” Maybe then these idiots will stop viewing vaginas as caves of wonderment and give them the damn respect they deserve.

So you know how you’re going home for Thanksgiving and you’re so excited to eat Turkey until you hurl, and then go back and eat some more? But there’s a lingering sense of anxiety, yeah? You’re wondering whether the TSA agent assigned to feel you up is going to be hot or not.
Ladies, I know that you plan to wear your most disgusting Thanksgiving travel-wear, in the hopes that the guy who looks like the Elephant Man will keep his dirty paws offer your hot bod.
For those of you who are more modest (or for those of you who do not want to risk getting cancer in 30 years because some jackass at the TSA has deemed the scanners completely safe when they may not be), some dude has developed special underwear that will protect your lady bits and your man pieces from the prying eyes of the TSA porno-scanners.

November 24 is “opt-out day.” Activists (and the U.S. Pilots Association, even!) are hoping Americans will send the TSA a message this Thanksgiving, and that message is this:
STOP FEELING ME UP.
