Abort! Abort! Abort!

dog's breakfastImagine you're an older gentleman and you're keen on bouncing a grandchild on two on your knee before you reach the chapter of life where more of your oatmeal drools into your lap than slides down your gullet. Sadly, your sons are infertile so it looks like you'll have to pony up some serious dough to get your boys some of that good old in vitro fertilization.

However, before the first ovum is harvested a new law is enacted which prevents any sort of artificial insemination, and so your dream of genetic immortality withers to dust. There's nothing you can do but return to your business and pour yourself into the mindless tedium of your vocation.

Eventually you find yourself in need of a new employee, one who will fill a key position. After weeks of searching you find the perfect man for the job, and no other will do. But in the process of a simple background check you discover that this is the very man responsible for the law that doomed you to looking forlornly over the fence into the green fields of Grandpahood.

Do you hire him, or do you rip his guts out with your bare hands?

Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's choice for vice-president, has co-sponsored two bills that would have made it a crime to employ in vitro. I wonder how Mr. Romney's choice for veep might have been different had Mr. Ryan been able to pass his bill before Mr. Romney was blessed with grandchildren.

The irony here is that Mr. Romney owes the existence of his grandchildren to the Democrats as it was they who kept the odious bill off the floor of the House. Of course in real life Mittens would simply pack his daughters-in-law off to an expensive Swiss fertility clinic and would thus get all the grandkids he can handle. Such loopholes are made for the wealthy.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I'd rip his guts out. Mitt, of course, hired him.

Oh, That Mitt.

robo-romneyIt seems that Mittens may have broken campaign fundraising laws during his recent trip abroad. If this is correct, and it certainly seems so, why hasn't he been disqualified?


Romney's right-to-life intentions are all over the place, but this is certain -- Not only does RomneyCare include abortion services (see chart below) but Bain Capital invested $75 million in a company called Stericycle which, among many other services, disposes of aborted fetuses. So not only did Mitt sign a health care bill that offers termination services, he also profited off them.


The Romney lads are in Las Vegas, no doubt on bended knee kissing the sainted toenails of gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson, in an attempt to rustle up a few million more advertising bucks. However, they're not allowing the press in to witness this shindig because it's a not a fundraising event, it's a "finance event". See the difference?


Paul Ryan speaks at a public event at the Iowa State Fair and doesn't appreciate the two ladies in the front row. When he calls the gendarmes and says "these ladies" it sounds almost exactly like "Release the hounds."

Paul Ryan: "You, Mitt Romney, have six grandchildren born through in vitro fertilization! But I, Paul Ryan, America’s moral shepherd, insist that this sinful process be criminalized! So, for the good of the ticket, I'm sending these six kids back where they came from! And don't do it again!"

Mitt Romney: "Apparently our vetting system still has a few bugs in it."
