The ‘Republican strategy’ on Planned Parenthood, or Political Nihilism redux: a comment by Political Observer

The Republicans will never learn, as long as Sen. McConnell and his coterie of sclerotic old white guys, continue to pursue the Neo-Confederate/Originalist Party Line: the myth that women need daddy’s guiding hand, because they are unable to confront such issues as birth control, without the moral surety of  masculine tutelage. The ‘War on Women’ has resonance with all but the religious zealots, who live in the thrall of  religious conservatism/fundamentalism!
Hospitals regularly, as a matter of course, sell tissue harvested from infant circumcisions to drug companies, that manufacture $200 dollar face cream, sold exclusively at plastic surgeons offices. Institutionalized sexual violence is a profit center.
The Republicans will seal their own fate, in 2016, by another round of political nihilism, ushering in Neo-Liberal hack Mrs. Clinton. What ever happened to all that Ronald Reagan political savvy? Or even that old political saw of the 11th commandment? And where are the Eisenhower Republicans?

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
