Platitudes And Platforms (Limerick)

Dear Republicans: If your Platform Committee is going to endorse an “abortion plank that includes no exemptions for rape, incest or even to save the life of the mother,” why bother condemning Todd Akin’s outrageous rape comments?

Were you hoping we wouldn’t notice that your platform is just as misogynous as the guy you’re condemning?

Platitudes And Platforms (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The GOP Platform Committee
Re abortion is lacking in pity
For victims of rape
And of incest: They ape
Akin’s attitude: Irony city!

    The Atlantic ran this piece yesterday pointing out that official U.S. government foreign policy is basically Akin’s position, and has been for 40 years:
    Akin & US Foreign Policy Re Rape Similar

    Someone should remove that plank from their platform, and spank them soundly with it.

    American politicians seem to this outsider to be a seething can of worms. The outside world is incensed by that evil cretin!

    Romney’s dad was millionaire…Mitt’s got $200-225 million [+ millions in trust for 5 sons]. Not for ONE MINUTE of his life has he felt deprived of anything… EVER. I don’t want a guy like that [White Male is already a privilege] running my life. Not for ONE MINUTE! He doesn’t get it~~neither does obsequious Ann. Aaack.
