Dear Bedroom-Invading Republicans (Limerick)

What century is this? The aggressive anti-contraception GOP stance makes me wonder whether I bought the wrong calendar.

Rick Santorum, a man who’s dangerously close to snatching the Republican presidential nomination away from Mitt Romney, apparently wants to preside over an antediluvian America: Here’s Santorum explaining why he wants to fight “the dangers of contraception:”

It’s not okay because it’s a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.

And Rick is far from the only bedroom-obsessed Republican. GOP over-reach regarding contraception is approaching epic proportions:

Last week, Freshman Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) filed legislation to allow any employer, religiously affiliated or not, to refuse to cover any essential or preventive health service, not just contraceptives, based on the “religious belief or moral conviction” of the employer. Word from DC is that Blunt and allies will attempt to add the provision as an amendment to other legislation now moving through the Senate….

The fact that American voters are overwhelmingly pro-birth control is apparently irrelevant to Republican politicians.

Perhaps a limerick might help Republican pols get the message:

Dear Bedroom-Invading Republicans (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Republican pols, please abstain
From ent’ring my bedroom domain.
And also stay out
Of my bathroom. Don’t pout!
If you’re truly “small gov,” you’ll refrain.

    Didn’t we already fight this battle, like back in the 60s? Time to move ahead with the times, don’t ya think? Oh, wait…THAT’S the problem. They don’t think!

    Keep on voting for these religious fanatics and this is what you will get. What is worse is after elected they hire their religious friends to important positions that last a lifetime and continue to influence politics long after the elected official is gone.
    Chose science and logic candidates over mystical religious types and this country will be much better off. Not only do the religious types try to force their beliefs on the rest of us, they rob us blind just like the evangelical TV preachers do their flock, as they think their god ordained them to be rich and the rest of us must suffer.
