The real Violence Against Women Act, the one that doesn’t leave out LGBT, undocumented and Native American Women (since, to paraphrase Burke’s position in A Vindication of Natural Society, they ain’t shit) passed the House with 87 RINOs voting for it. Cathy “Turncoat” McMorris-Rogers’ amendment to put those foreigns and gays back in their place died the death of 60 cuts from Republicans who haven’t been attending their Bible study class with Steve King.
For those of you keeping score, 49 rebels got their mother in a whirl and voted for Sandy relief, and 85 heretics ate halal, knelt in the direction of Mecca, and voted not to go over the Fiscal Cliff. So Denny Hastert’s “rule” has been folding on the edges during recent outings.
Also, too, if your “Democratic” rep is named Lipinski or McIntyre, call that fucker up and ask him why he thinks Native American women, LGBT and undocumented immigrants shouldn’t get the same protection as the rest of the women. It’s Roll Call 54 if they act dumb.
