The writing has been on the wall for weeks now, but yesterday late-term abortion champion Wendy Davis officially announced her campaign for Governor of Texas … with a picture of her with young children:

The irony of Ms. Davis posing with children after her now famous (infamous) attempted filibuster of a Texas bill – ultimately passed in the next special session – that would ban the brutal termination of unborn children after 20 weeks wasn’t lost on anyone. Clearly, Davis would like to put a happy face on the ugliest part of her “legacy” as a “heroine for women’s rights” – that legacy being the unconditional advocacy for the “right” to literally cut off the life of the most innocent among us before they’ve had the first chance to breathe on their own. But pro-lifers won’t be so quick to let it slide, nor will conservative Texans who will fight proudly to keep her out of the Governor’s chair.

And from the Stacey Stacy who spells his name the wrong way:
As what point does journalistic objectivity shade into the “who are we to judge” posture of moral relativism? Do journalists have an obligation to call evil by its right name? These questions crossed my mind as I watched an ABC Good Morning America segment about Kaitlyn Hunt, who copped a plea Thursday on felony charges involving her sexual affair with a 14-year-old girl.
The brief segment — a teaser of a longer 20/20 story that will air tonight — was balanced. It wasn’t a one-sided puff piece, the kind of gay victimhood celebration the mainstream media were doing back in May when this story first went national.
Our jug-eared hero Detective Jeremy Shepherd was interviewed, as was Jim Smith, the father of the underage victim in the case. But I was uneasy as the segment closed with George Stephanopoulos on the Good Morning America set with ABC’s legal expert, Dan Abrams, who said sex with a 14-year-old is a crime “as a technical legal matter.”

The esteemed Mr McCain has been all over this story since it first broke. Miss Hunt, who was an 18 year old senior, began a sexual affair with a 14 year old freshman. In Florida, the age of consent is 18, which meant that Miss Hunt was guilty of statutory rape. A “Romeo and Juliet” exemption in Florida law greatly reduces penalties for adults 23 and younger who have sex with teenagers 16 and older, but the exemption doesn’t cover Miss Hunt’s 14 year old victim.
Normally, these things just get ignored, but the victim’s parents told Miss Hunt to stay away from their daughter, apparently twice, but Miss Hunt wouldn’t take no for an answer, so the parents went to the police. This still wouldn’t have become a national story, had Miss Hunt accepted a plea deal which would have given her no jail time, and would have allowed her to stay off the sex offender registry. Miss Hunt rejected the plea deal twice, and was going to have to go to trial. She was free on bond, but then violated the terms of her bond, which required that she have no contact with the victim, by sending her thousands of text messages, including a video of herself masturbating. Bond revoked, and our special snowflake has been in jail since August 20th.
Miss Hunt has now accepted a new plea deal, one which keeps her in the county jail until December 20th, a total of four months behind bars, and then keeps her under house arrest, with electronic monitoring, for another year. The terms of her three years on probation are such that law enforcement may search her residence and her electronic communications at will, with no warrant required, and if she completes her probation successfully, the judge will not convict her on the charges to which she pleaded no contest. She will still avoid being put on the sex offender registry.
It’s a pretty good deal all around: she is held to account for violating the law, but by avoiding the sex offender registry, she has a chance at a normal life after all of this is over. Putting her on the sex offender registry for a high school romance would be to create just another permanent welfare recipient. But if she fouls up — something she’s already demonstrated a penchant for — she goes to jail and will wind up with a felony record and sex offender status.
Mr McCain is more worried about what he sees as a move to legalize pedophilia. Miss Hunt’s attorney, A. Julia Graves, released a statement in which she thrice referred to Miss Hunt’s victim as the “victim,” which tells you a lot about her mindset. Miss Hunt’s parents have also released statements trying to blame everybody but their daughter and themselves; apparently, nobody ever told them that there is simply a time to STFU. Miss Hunt’s attorney and her parents want a change in the law to make 14 year olds legal, which raises the obvious question: why not 13 year olds?
Florida law is just fine the way it stands, and while very few of these cases are prosecuted, because the police don’t go out looking for them, parents sometimes do use the law to protect their children.

So, did the Department of Health and Human Services come up with this number by mistake, or are they just sending a message to the American people? The number to call with Obamacare questions is 1-800-FUCKYO.
More at the link. As anal as this Administration is about details — though they sure seem to get them wrong a lot! — it’s difficult for me to think that not one single person at HHS didn’t spot this. But, whether intentional or just another foul up, the phone number sends absolutely the correct message concerning Obaminablecare.

Destroying things like marriage, the traditional family, chivalry, and romance is a favorite feminazi pastime. It doesn’t really matter what women actually want, because feminazis all know better than the idiots who might actually still want a chivalrous man and a nuclear family one day. It also doesn’t matter that women are more miserable and unhappy now than they have been in decades, because feminazis are doing this all for our own good, duh.
Meanwhile, leading feminazi troll Amanda Marcotte is gleeful to find out that some women are helping to pay for their own engagement rings. For most conservatives, this probably falls under the “who gives a damn?” category, because conservatives generally don’t care what people do in their private lives. But libtard feminazis like Amanda Marcotte love turning being a stuck-up, nosy know-it-all into a profession, so that makes this Very Important News.
If nothing else, one might think that making engagement more of an equal endeavor would pacify control-obsessed feminists like Marcotte. But of course, engagement leads to weddings, remember? So we just need to do away with the whole thing.
More at the link. The lovely Miss Marcotte, who has never been married and doesn’t want to get married — though she has been sharing a domicile with her boyfriend for several years now — but that does seem to make her a (self-appointed) authority on marriage, with the continual advice: don’t do it!
The Stacey who spells his name William Teach noted that 93% of Environmental Protection Agency employees are considered “non-essential.” I’d suggest that they have underestimated that by about 7%. But the obvious question is: if an employee is non-essential, why is he even an employee at all?
The Stacey who spells his name Felix posted:
The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Angela Couloumbis acts akin to what Hube posted about recently regarding the owner of Barilla pasta. The headline of her article states “Corbett compares same-sex marriage to incest,” and she writes in the article “Pennsylvania Gov. Corbett on Friday compared same-sex marriage to the marriage of brothers and sisters.” (Just in case you thought she’s blameless for the headline.)
But did he actually do that? Let’s see:
The Republican governor, whose approval ratings have been low and who is up for reelection next year, made the comments during an interview with WHP-TV in Harrisburg, after being asked about a controversial statement his lawyers had made over the summer on gay marriage.During the interview, Corbett called “inappropriate” his attorneys’ statement in an August court filing. In the filing, the attorneys wrote that gay marriage is against Pennsylvania law, just as marriage is between children.
The governor then told the news station that he thought “a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don’t you?”
Where, exactly, did Corbett compare gay marriage to incest? The only such “comparision” made was that both are against state law currently. And hell, he was trying to atone, however clumsily, from an even clumsier statement.
More at the link, but no one is surprised that the media would not get the story right, if publishing propaganda would help their meme more.
That’s it for this week.
