Headlines - Monday March 19

9 years ago today the Iraq war started.
The Heartland Institute, already in trouble for dishonest shenanigans, tried to steal documents from Greenpeace. Hypocrisy in action.
Tea Party Leader Busted For Rape

Michael Kobulnicky, spokesperson for the San Diego Tea Party, has been arrested for rape and assault.
Kobulnicky is accused of a Feb. 25 abduction and sexual assault of a 56-year-old woman who was walking home near Linda Vista Road in Fiesta Island. The woman was pulled into a car and assaulted, then left on the island, police said. Surveillance footage of the area near the assault gave police evidence to pursue a suspect. They released a picture of the suspect to the public, and many identified the suspect as Kobulnicky, police said. Kobulnicky was booked into San Diego Central Jail on numerous felony charges, including kidnapping, sexual assault and sex with a foreign object.
Four days ago Kobulnicky endorsed a national boycott of Red Bull: "Don't buy Red Bull. Look at what they think about Jesus. There is such an attack against Christianity now and hopefully Christians stand up for what they believe!"
VIDEO: Kobulnicky claims that "activities which illustrate our freedoms are being taken from us every day." Therefore, churches should form Constitution Clubs for kids. Or something
Pro-Gun, Pro-'Life' Republican Arrested For Domestic Violence
Freaks: Colorado's "First Degree Homicide Of Unborn Child Bill" Passes 2nd Reading In House

The Idaho Senate is set to vote on its mandatory ultrasound bill (SB 1387) and may do so as early as tomorrow—March 19. And yes, there's enough transvaginal probing for the whole family:

The Senate State Affairs Committee pushed a controversial measure forward [Wednesday] morning that would force women to undergo ultrasounds prior to having an abortion.

Hey Idahoans! If you believe that unnecessary medical procedures and forced vaginal probing do not a "life-affirming environment" make, contact your representative or Governor Otter.


Old man yells at clouds

GREGORY: Do you think that there is something of a war on women among Republicans?

McCAIN: I think we have to fix that. I think that there is a perception out there because of how this whole contraception issue played out — ah, we need to get off of that issue, in my view. I think we ought to respect the right of women to make choices in their lives and make that clear, and get back onto what the American people really care about.

Of course, Dancing With The Gregory does not do the obvious follow-up question asking Walnuts why he voted for the Blunt Amendment that would have allowed employers to veto women's access to contraception through their health plans.

That's our fee, er, Free and unfettered Media. Treasure it, people.

Tennessee Bill May Expose Identities Of Women Seeking Abortions

Westboro's Kidz Got Singing

You'd think a guy in Rush Limbaugh's currently rather unenviable position would take all the help he can get — but apparently he is turning down sweet sweet ad $$$ just because it comes from the patriots of the God Hates Fags Brigade.

Westboro spokesman Steve Drain told Raw Story that while his organization has had their differences with Limbaugh, they were on the same page when it came to labeling Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a slut.

"Even a blind hog can get an acorn every once in a while," Drain explained. "We're not aligning ourselves with Rush Limbaugh because as we say on our website about him, he wouldn't recognize Bible truths if it were a bottle of pills sitting on his desk."

OK, which of you guys infiltrated Westboro, married all of its daughters, and became hilarious spokesman Steve Drain? And who among you came up with this actually funny ad (and intentionally so???!!!1!) from Westboro?


James O'Keefe might possibly have a problem with women


The fine people at Mediaite have an excellent 'splainer braiding together the threads of onetime James O'Keefe comrade Nadia Naffe, her harassment complaint against him, the "night in the barn," her upcoming tell-all, and other assorted completely unhilarious doings. They are better men than your editrix, who can barely read Naffe's original harassment complaint without a long pull of Pepto and a Silkwood shower. READ MORE »


SC immigration law secretly exempted jobs South Carolinians really want Mexican to do

This guy is your kids' nanny now.

Well well well. It seems a secret loophole in South Carolina's anti-immigration law, undoubtedly put in at the behest of Big Nanny, lets South Carolina employers off the hook in checking the immigration status of any potential worker who wants to clean their house, diaper their kids, or pick their strawberries.
