Try to remember the good things...
According to Mr. Pridemore, women in abusive marriages should just shut their eyes, much like closing your eyes while you are being raped by the GOP's shaming wand, and remember the things they love about their husband -- "If they can re-find those reasons and get back to why they got married in the first place it might help."
He also said, according to the Yahoo article:
...that while he thinks women are capable of caring for a family "in certain situations," fathers are the only ones who provide structure and discipline. If they don't grow up with married biological parents, Pridemore says, "kids tend to go astray."
These comments stem from him being a co-sponsor of fellow GOP douchebag state Sen. Glenn Grothman's Limbaughesque "being single causes child abuse" Senate Bill 507.
Looks like we're getting to the shirty, snitty, smegma-lipped-pout phase of the GOP primaries. Rick Santorum would like to take Mitt Romney's toys and go home!
"You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who's just going to be a little different than the person in there," said Santorum. "If you're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the etch a sketch candidate of the future." Watch Rick Santorum endorse Barack Obama, after the jump! READ MORE »
We report, you decide.
I don't want to read another fucking word about what a wonderful kid Trayvon Martin was. He was, of course, exactly the kind of smart, well-behaved, clean-cut, destined-for-success black kid white elitist repugs all claim to love to pieces.
And that's exactly the problem.
The murder of Trayvon Martin is an outrage and a tragedy not because Trayvon Martin was - in the words I am sure have been uttered many times in the repug cesspool that is the Florida legislature and law-enforcement community - "a good colored."
The murder of Trayvon Martin is an outrage and a tragedy because Florida law allows racist, mouthbreathing cop-wannabe crackers like George Zimmerman to gun people down for no reason.
If the person George Zimmerman shot had been a black, 6-foot-6, gang-tattooed, 300-pounds-of-muscle high-school dropout with a long juvenile and adult record of drug crimes, who did not live in the neighborhood, who was actually casing the area for burglary targets, and who was carrying a concealed weapon (Florida lets anybody carry concealed), the shooting still would have been murder.
Make no mistake; George Zimmerman is not going to spend a day in jail. I seriously doubt there's a judge or jury in Florida that would award Trayvon's parents a dime in wrongful-death compensation.
That's because the Stand Your Ground Laws - in Florida and a dozen other states - makes cold-blooded murder for fun legal.
Basing opposition to those laws on what a wonderful kid Trayvon Martin was is - you should excuse the expression - a dead-bang loser.
Victims of this law are far more likely to be big, ugly, dangerous felons than they are to be cute fluffy bunnies like Trayvon Martin.
But even big, ugly, dangerous felons who are not breaking the law have not earned execution.
Whew! Tucker Carlson's Daily Callgirl couldn't quite figure out how to blame Barack Obama for Trayvon Martin's death, but thankfully star "reporter" Matthew Boyle came up with the next best thing: President Barack Obama only commented on the death of a young man shot by a guy muttering "fucking coons" because the Black Panthers told him to.
