Bad dogs, Lance Armstrong, and Republicans for Rape
I’m a firm believer in bad dogs being the result of bad owners. However, at the same time I do wonder why all the dogs biting and killing small children are reportedly pitbulls. Here in San Diego we seem to have a pitbull attack every other month. No other type of dog. Always pitbulls. The only instance I have ever read of another type of dog biting and killing someone occurred in January 2001 in San Francisco when two Presa Canarios killed Diane Whipple. Diane and the owners of the two dogs had a history of confrontation with each other while living in the same building. Diane’s dead and the two dog owners are in prison for life, one for life.
When evidence came out that Joe Paterno, long-time football coach at Pennsylvania State University, helped over up the various instances of child abuse by Jerry Sandusky over about thirteen years, I couldn’t understand how people would still rush to defend Paterno. I had a similar circumstance with Lance Armstrong. I found it hard not to support Lance because of all the good he had done, just like Paterno, over the years. After reading the 202-page USADA report on Lance Armstrong, I am no longer a fan. I don’t wish him ill will or anything, I’m just sad and moving on.
How could any woman in her right mind vote for a Republican? The recent remarks from them in apparent support of rape are not the first. These remarks go back at least to mid-1990. If six people are actually saying it, you can be assured that hundreds or thousands more Republicans in Red States are thinking it! Women? Wake up!
Clayton Williams: “If it’s inevitable, just relax and enjoy it” – 1990 Texas Governor’s race
Ken Buck: “A jury could very well conclude that this is a case of buyer’s remorse … It appears to me … you invited him over… the appearance is of consent.” – October 2010
Rick Santorum: “Rape victims should make the best of a bad situation.” – January 2012
Chuck Winder: “I would hope that when a woman goes in to a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape.” – March 2012
Todd Akin: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down” – August 2012 Missouri Senate race
Richard Mourdock: “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” – October 2012 Indiana Senate race
