They didn’t mention the wet suits

This will go over well with women voters:

The crowd responded enthusiastically as Brown made his case against AG Martha Coakley (D) — even interrupting frequently to make Brown’s case for him.

“I’ll tell you what,” Brown said, using a megaphone to address the crowd. “There’s negative campaigning, and then there’s malicious campaigning.”

“She’s malicious!” a man in the crowd cried out. “She’s a phony!” shouted another. “Shove a curling iron up her butt!” a third man interjected a few moments later.

Why is it always about putting things up people’s butts with Republicans these days? Seriously.

Update. Eddie Murphy said it best.

    Cerberus says:

    The right wing are obsessed about sticking things about butts and throats for a very simple reason. They fear that someone will treat them as they treat women, that is, as holes to be sexually used on the terms of the other person.

    Talking to any right-winger about sex and you will quickly realize that they seem completely oblivious to the concept of consent or to consensual sexual activity, instead viewing it on the sole terms of something men do to women and to which women either succeed or fail to resist and before anyone argues that this is a ludicrous claim, actually analyze right-wing arguments about sex. They often center on good sex and bad sex along lines of the style of sex, whether both partners are married, etc… and have no frames to separate consensual activities of sex between friends, sex between two men or two women, or even orgies from things like rape or other forms of coerced consent (which are also rape but not always legally rape). You even get them defending marital rape from time to time because their wives “consented” by getting married to them.

    Whereas DFHs often view good sex, bad sex wholly under consent lines, seeing “sex” without consent to be instead rape and not at all desired. It’s also behind things like the intense wingnut fear of gays in the military or gays in general. The intense fear that some gay man will treat them as they treat women. Most of it is the fear that results from being so violently invested in misogyny that someone will “get revenge” and “do it to you”.

    Of course, I’d be lying if I didn’t also mention that some fair bit of it might also be freudian slips of homoerotic desire. I have a personal and exceedingly unscientific opinion that if everyone was fully honest, at least 50% of the population is some form of bi (even if it’s Kinsey 1 or mostly straight, but Brad Pitt y’know) and well wingnuts are kings of frustrated repression so it wouldn’t be surprising if they got a bit obsessed with cocks especially if their intense loathing for women was suppressing any remaining sexual attraction for women.

    But I suspect most of it stems from their uncaring-for-consent idea of sex and sexuality.

    What is also amusing is wingnuts getting all hot and bothered because Coakley says Brown supported letting hospitals decide to not treat rape victims with emergency anti pregnancy actions.

    Seems he proffered an amendment to do just that, that was defeated, but he ended up voting for the rape treatment bill/And all of this is disclosed on Coakley’s website.

    Now wingers and some pundits are crying foul cause he ended up voting for the bill after his odious amendment was defeated.

    b-psycho says:

    In a brief interview with OnCall after the rally, Brown renewed his stated opposition to Pres. Obama’s proposed bank tax, turning the question back around to Coakley even as Dems have tried to make an issue of Brown’s opposition.

    “There’s not a tax that Martha Coakley doesn’t like,” Brown said. “When banks are trying to stimuluate the economy and lend money, they’re paying back not only the amount they borrowed, they’re paying it back with interest.”

    “So I’m not in favor of the tax,” he added. “While I certainly don’t agree with a lot of the large payouts to the executives, to have people like this pay another tax in the midst of a recession, it doesn’t make any sense.”

    The bank tax applies to the banks as entities, not the individual executives, and is targeted at banks with over $50 BILLION in assets. Does this idiot really think that it’s indistinguishable from raising taxes on the proverbial Everyday Hard-Working Job-Creating Small Businessman?

The fact of the matter is, ever since the general election in 08, we’ve become complacent. If Browns wins, it will be a testament to that complacency.

    I am so sick of this crap coming from the Right. Like you said, it has everything to do with getting back, as they see it, into power. As far as what they’d actually do, once in ascendency, they haven’t a clue. Beyond more tax cuts for the rich and fixing health care by making it harder for people to sue their doctors, what exactly is their grand plan for America?

    On CNN today they had the usual smirking suspects, prattling about the MA election. Listening to Mary Matalin, it all seems moot. According to her it’s all a disaster for Obama and the Dem’s, whether Coakley wins or loses. Apparently, a close win is as bad as a loss. Or in her ridiculous terms, ‘apocalyptic’.

    NonWonderDog says:

    I still can’t understand what this is supposed to refer to. From what I’ve been able to piece together, Coakley was a DA when a police officer raped a toddler with a curling iron, but Coakley didn’t get the grand jury to indict the guy the first time she tried to bring it to trial. She got it on the second go, but she was elected to AG before the case was prosecuted, and it was her successor that got the guy convicted to two life sentences. Also something about the DA (whichever one it was) not asking for bail.

    Apparently this all means that Coakley is as bad as, if not worse than, the rapist. I actually heard Hannity throw spittle about this case (I’m a glutton for punishment), but even listening to Hannity I couldn’t figure out why Coakley’s treatment of this case was supposed to be objectionable.

    JoyceH says:

    I think more attention needs to be paid to the fact that the entire Brown campaign staff appears to be classified as contractors. For one thing, it’s probably illegal, and he’s going to wind up owing some hefty back taxes when this is over, win or lose.

    Employers don’t get to decide arbitrarily who’s an employee and who’s a contractor. Because if they did, all employers would classify their entire workforce as contractors – it would save them a whole heap of money, and that money would be coming out of the hide of their workers. Employers don’t have to withhold income taxes for contractors or provide medical coverage, and it’s the medical coverage that’s getting the most attention, since HCR is the issue of the day.

    But also a significant savings, employers don’t have to pay their share of FICA to contractors, who are considered self-employed. If the staffers were classified as employees, they would pay 6.2% in FICA tax and the campaign that employs them would also pay 6.2%. But as independent contractors, the staffer would have to pay the entire 12.4% FICA tax out of his own pocket. That’s a shitty, shitty way for a campaign to save money, in my opinion.

    And it’s also almost certainly illegal. As I said, it’s not arbitrary – there are rules for who can be classified as self-employed independent contractors. If these staffers are working full-time for Brown, if they have no other clients, if they are entirely under the direction of the campaign, if the campaign provides them with a work space and office equipment, along with other criteria, then they should be classified as employees, not as contractors.

    I’m sure the IRS is already raising their eyebrows about this situation, and Brown will pay for it eventually – I just think that’s something that people ought to consider come time to vote.

    Because remember, ALL employers would call you an independent contractor and skate out from under paying their share of FICA, providing health insurance and all the rest of it, if they could.

    Unsurprisingly, you appear to be illiterate. Read the bill — don’t just imagine what you think it might say.

    Brown’s bill was to exempt hospital employees from being forced to do something against their religious beliefs. Many of these employees (let’s say, half) are WOMEN. He didn’t say they couldn’t provide whatever care was requested if they chose — only that no one could be forced to do something against their belief system.

    Regardless, you must admit that the mailer is a vile lie designed to dupe low-information voters. This, coupled with Ed Schultz’s “Get out there and cheat for Coakley!” rant, should knock you phony, self-righteous Donks off your high unicorns… for about ten minutes.

    I welcome any politician to campaign on throwing people out of their lifelong professions because they aren’t atheist enough. That would be a hoot to watch!

    Excuse me?

    What is this incoherent nonsense supposed to mean?

    Which campaigning politician talked about ‘throwing people out of their life long professions’?

    Of course, we do have this idiocy going on…

    @bender:

    And I repeat my contention, which have failed to reasonably rebutt…

    And patients in real need shouldn’t have to suffer because of somebody’s personal superstitions…

    Care to try again?

    ” before Plan B was even invented.”

    Plan B is the fracking birth control pill just maxed to the gills. It’s a huge dose of the birth control pill. If the woman is already pregnant then it does nothing.

    Pharmicists doctors each year in fact every day have to face new drugs to distribute or old drugs that have been reaproved that may violate their supposed santosect religious beliefs or what they believe their beliefs tell them to do. If they cannot handle the possiblity of that then they shouldn’t be in the field. It’s like Chrisitan Scientists becoming pharmasicts and them refusing to give out any medicine including cold medicine since it violates their beliefs.

    Brown’s bill was to exempt hospital employees from being forced to do something against their religious beliefs.

    Fuck you for a thinly disguised bill to allow Hospitals to deny care to rape victims.

    You can take your religious claptrap and save it for your personal life, but let it interfere with your fucking job to help people and your ass is grass.

    They shouldn’t have to change lifelong professions because a new product goes against their beliefs.

    If a hospital employee denies care to a patient because they don’t believe the magic asshole sky-fairy they worship would approve, they deserve all the scorn, contempt and legal actions they get.

    Uhh…let’s look at the actual language of the amendment Brown introduced:

    Linky

    Nothing in this section shall impose any requirements upon any employee, physician or nurse of any facility to the extent that administering the contraception conflicts with a sincerely held religious belief. In determining whether an employee, physician or nurse of any facility has a sincerely held religious belief administering the contraception, the conflict shall be known and disclosed to said facility and on record at said facility.
    If it is deemed that said employee, physician or nurse of any facility has a sincerely held religious conflict administering the contraception, then said treating facility shall have in place a validated referral procedure policy for referring patients for administration of the emergency contraception that will administer the emergency contraception, which may include a contract with another facility. The referrals shall be made at no additional cost to the patient.

    Given the actual text of the amendment, all of the claims about turning women away from ER’s and denying them access to the ‘morning after’ pill seem to be a little overblown, to put it mildly.

    Or to be more blunt, they’re bullshit worthy of Turd Blossom.

    @JoyceH: I hadn’t heard he was doing that. It’s extraordinarily stupid if he is. From what I recall, the fine was $7k per misclassified employee (it’s been about 12 years, so that number may or may not be accurate), and full backup withholding on all wages paid to each individual, whether or not those individual paid their taxes themselves.

    @glocksman:

    If you aren’t aware that time is a bit of an issue and even an hour is a critical time period. Plus guess what it may be a hundred or miles to another facility to get the treatment. Why should someone have to go to another facility to get something that is covered with a doctor’s prescription.

    Yes they are turned away from the ER. That is what means to be told go somewhere else.

    Given the actual text of the amendment, a woman could find herself surrounded by hospitals full of people who won’t treat her and keep referring her to the “next hospital down the road”.

    Again, fuck you for being a bullshitter.
