"Of course" moments

When reading the news, I often have "of course" moments, where my suspicions or misgivings or fears are confirmed, the worst turns out to happen or to be true, and I just say, "of course." The latest moments:

1. pRick Santorum insults gays YET AGAIN by saying that only straight marriages benefit society and are "an intrinsic good." OF COURSE. I knew it had been too long since this asshole spewed his hate. This is, after all, the guy who compared gay marriage to incest. I was so happy when he lost his Senate seat and his little family cried and cried and I laughed and laughed.

2. Former Chimpy crony Ari Fleischer has been helping the Susan G Komen foundation out, and then OF COURSE, SGK cuts off funding to Planned Parenthood. So what looked like a charity to help women ends up bowing to reich-wingers and anti-choice assholes.

3. Unemployment is down YET AGAIN, but repugs keep saying the economy sucks and don't believe what your eyes are seeing! OF COURSE, if Newtie (Nudie?) were in charge, all these stats would be dead on and unimpeachable FACT!

Of course!

But I have to say the institution of marriage is not good for women anyway.

Nor is any breast cancer organization really out to help put an end to breast cancer.

I do think PP is good though so I'm not all negative here.

Hey, now women don't have to pretend to support an organization that infantilizes breast cancer by giving women suffering from that fucking disease a goddamn pink teddy bear. fuck them. And I have a good friend who is a nurse practitioner for Planned Parenthood. She likes knowing that she's doing important work, and she is. Last I heard, PP got $3 million and counting. I hope the Komen Foundation rolls up into a ball and rolls away.

LAIKIN--welcome to the bloggy. I have to agree -- it's all money and publicity under the guise of "charity."

GMB--I have always hated that whole pink-ribbon crap. I like what you say about the infantilization -- that's a great word for it. And PP will never get as much funding because it's a pro-choice, truly pro-women organization. Sad but true.

That picture of the little Santorums never gets old.
