1. That is what I am thinking

Where are you? When will the women of this country wake up and FIGHT?

3. Excuse me? EXCUSE ME?

You think we're all sitting on our fat little asses doing NOTHING? Saying NOTHING?

Did you look at the picture on the front page where the women have been shoved to the background while the men testify as experts?

What do you want us to do that we aren't already doing? Walk into the halls of congress and start shooting people???

Shall I post for your benefit some of the threads over the past several years where DUers have tried to advocate for women only to be shouted down by the defenders of "fathers'" rights, including the right not to pay child support and the right to hold yay or nay power over the woman who wants to abort?

Your post, Mr. Scorpio, is a brazen insult to the many women -- and men -- who have been fighting daily for years and decades.

4. I "think" he is referring to this (see body of post) Tansy...

http://www.dccc.org/pages/wherearethewomen

That's what I got out of it. Although he should link to it in his post.

12. I'm not mad at you, Tansy

And, yes, I was being intentionally cryptic. But my question wasn't directed at women. It was directed at Issa and the republicans.

Sometimes wires get crossed on the Internet, right?

Forgive and forget?

But I doubt that you'll be with us for long.

13. Sorry to offend. Blazing Saddles is a classic, but not everyone appreciates it.

Pretty unhip for a Democratic audience.

14. I like humor. I've even been known to crack the odd joke from time to time...

But your response was inappropriate.

It had nothing to do with being classical or hip.

15. You posted an inane question free of any context...

and it happened to be just one word short of a classic joke from a well known, well respected, if edgy, comedy. If you can't handle free-association responses, don't make tabula rasa posts. Anyway, I did say I was sorry I offended you. If you want a forum with perfect decorum, you might think about actually accepting an apology when it's offered.

16. Seeing how quite a few others had gotten the context right away...

You can hardly blame me for your own inappropriateness, given the breadth of the subject matter at large.

You're the only one who deemed to go where you went and now you're trying to absolve yourself with halfassed apologies, deflections and projections.

And it's not like you didn't know... All you had to do was read any of the prior posts in this thread to get the point. But yet, you chose to ignore all of that and went where you went.

You were being rude, not just to me, but to to women as well.

You could have deleted the post, but chose not to do that, before defending your actions.

So you can see where your sincerity can come into question.

On edit. Thank you for the belated deletion.
