The wingnuttery continues: Condoms are a no-no for O’Donnell

This batshit crazy broad now rivals Batshit Bachmann I believe. I bet the GOP just love this fucknut. From MediaMattersActionNetwork blog:

O’Donnell: Condoms Are An “Anti-Human” “Insult” That Reduce People “To The Level Of A Dog”

50 minutes ago — Media Matters Action Network

Since her surprising victory in the Delaware GOP primary, Christine O’Donnell has been getting a lot of attention for her extreme views. But unlike other Tea Party candidates, such as Sharron Angle (R-NV) and Joe Miller (R-AK), O’Donnell’s most jaw-dropping past statements have to do with sex. Over the course of her career as an abstinence-only activist, O’Donnell has denounced efforts to promote condoms and safe sex as “anti-human” and an “insult” that reduces teenagers “to the level of a dog that can’t control its hormones.” Here are a few of the lowlights (quotes via Nexis): 

“And to me, it’s a very anti-human way to go about this. And what I mean about anti-human is even if the population is increasing, so what? So what? People aren’t bad. When did humans become a bad thing? Why is it that we have to, you know, stop people from getting pregnant?” [The O’Reilly Factor, 1/6/06]

“[C]ondoms will not protect you from AIDS. So to just throw a bunch of condoms over to Africa and say, here, we’re helping you with AIDS, is just going to further the spread of AIDS over there.” [Donahue, 4/27/02]

“We’re doing a great disservice to our young people because the only protection is abstinence, as condoms have been proven fallible….The federal government should not be telling young people to use condoms….It’s also an insult to teenagers, reducing them to the level of a dog that can’t control its hormones.” [Washington Times, 12/1/95]

 This broad will provide hours of entertainment and/or crying at her ignorance for me for the next month or two..I can tell already.

Bonus update..C&L has the video of Mentally Unstable Malkin and Krazy Karl Rove going off on each other over O’Donnell..aka the GOP eating their own.

Oh, added bonusthis poll says republican voters want John Boehner and Mitchy McConnell to take a long walk off a very short pier if the GOP gains control in November.

Harriet rats out Rove?

Oh my…this is juicy. From McClatchy:

Karl Rove and other top officials in the George W. Bush White House were deeply involved in pushing for the ouster of several U.S. attorneys, notably including one in New Mexico, according to testimony and e-mails that the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee released Tuesday.

Sworn testimony from former White House Counsel Harriet Miers revealed that Rove considered former U.S. Attorney David Iglesias of New Mexico a “serious problem” and “wanted something done about it” because of complaints about politically sensitive investigations that Iglesias had mounted. Miers said that she couldn’t recall whether Rove specifically demanded Iglesias’ firing during a 2006 conversation, but Iglesias was fired later that year.

Harriet’s statements directly contradict Rover’s. Again from McClatchy:

In sworn closed-door testimony to the House Judiciary Committee in July, Rove continued to distance himself from the decision to push out certain prosecutors. He recalled a proposal to fire some or all of them in late 2004, but denied that he’d come up with a plan to have it done and rejected the suggestion that he had a direct role.

“My view was this is a decision that had to be made at the Justice Department,” Rove said, according to a transcript of his sworn testimony.

Rover is so full of shit, his eyes better be brown. We can now read the transcript of Rover’s sworn testimony with the House Judiciary Committee here and here(pdf). You can also read the emails frm the White House and the RNC about firing the USA’s at the McClatchy link at the top of this post.

I will be reading the transcripts and emails for the next couple of days..whilst my friggin tv is being shipped to Chino for a replacement tv.

Rove deposed by congress critters today.


From RawStory:

Judiciary Chairman won’t comment on what was asked, said

Former Bush White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove was deposed by lawyers for the House Judiciary Committee, Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) said in an interview Tuesday.

Rove’s deposition took place over a period of some eight and a half hours, beginning at 10 a.m. and ending around 6:30 p.m, ET — and the lawyers took several breaks, Conyers said.

Conyers wouldn’t say what Rove told investigators or whether Rove would appear before his committee again.

Oh…to have been a fly on that wall today.

Look who is calling the kettle black.


Krazy Karl Rove. This jackass of mythic proportions has the audacity to state in his OpEd and on Faux Noise that Obama has…cough..ethical problems, by accusing the Obama administration of working with MoveOn and Americans United for Change on ads they created and ran.

Does this fuckwit have Alzheimer’s? He single-handidly politicized every department and office in the Bush administration for eight years. From ThinkProgress:

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed and on Fox News this morning, former Bush political adviser Karl Rove accused the Obama White House of “ethical problems” in its “hard-nosed push” to “pressure Congress to adopt the president’s budget.” “The degree of direction the White House is exerting over a lobby campaign” is “unprecedented,” claimed Rove, referring to ad campaigns by Americans United for Change and MoveOn.org.

When Fox’s Bill Hemmer asked Rove how this was different from the “contact with outside groups” he had during the Bush administration, Rove replied that “it’s fine to say the White House is focused on getting our message out to these members,” but that it’s another thing to “sit down and coordinate on ad copy.” Watch it:

Rove and Miers to testify before Conyers.


But…..

It will not be public nor will it be under oath.

WTF?

There will be a transcript however. Jonathan Turley is waxing poetic on this new development on Countdown. Video when available. From the link:

The agreement calls for Rove and Miers, Bush’s top political adviser and White House counsel, to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in closed depositions “under the penalty for perjury,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich. The committee says it also might call the two for public testimony.
