Return To The Good Ol’ Days of Ignorance

 

 Whiplash inducing quote of the day from Republican Mike Pence, speaking in Iowa: 

“To those who say we should focus on fiscal issues, instead of the right to life, I say, ‘What is more fiscally responsible than rolling back this administration’s effort to expand funding for abortion at home and abroad?’” Pence said.
“What is more fiscally responsible than denying any and all funding to Planned Parenthood of America?”
 
 
Could this guy be any more of an idiot?
 
 
Here is an excerpt from Planned Parenthood’s mission statement:
 
“We are a trusted health care provider, an informed educator, a passionate advocate, and a global partner helping similar organizations around the world. Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide.

 

For more than 90 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to women’s health and well-being, based on respect for each individual’s right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning.”

 Yessir, Mr. Pence.  Let’s party like it’s 1920.

Paging Levi Johnston…

Unfortunate wording of the day in a statement regarding the possible reasons for the alarming rise in teen pregnancies:

“It could be a lot of things coming together,” said Rebecca Maynard, a professor of economics and social policy at the University of Pennsylvania. “It could be we just bottomed out, and whenever you are at the bottom, it tends to wiggle around. This may or may not be a sustained rise.”

Ha!  This sounds like a fake quote from Davis Logsdon or Tracy Klugian in Andy Borowitz’ “The Borowitz Report”, but it’s real, folks.

Can’t make this stuff up…
