Checking out the new Mazda Pi...

Seems Legit...

Meanwhile, Back At The Conn...

Let's say that we have this Congressional Republican in a box...

While he's in the box, the President signs a historic nuclear weapons accord with the Iranian Government...

If this Republican tweets that President Obama's Iranian accord is in fact a diversion from the problems with Obamacare, then we could classify that Republican to be an asshole. However, we're not sure as of yet that the Republican will tweet such a statement without us observing him.

Now, if some whiner says that we shouldn't call Republicans "assholes" because personal attacks are never appropriate, then that whiner is, by definition, asserting that the tweeting or non-tweeting Republican is not an asshole.

Considering both of these things, one could agree that the Congressional Republican is simultaneously an asshole and not an asshole (Though I'm not one to do that).

Opening the box and observing the Republican is either in the midst of tweeting like an asshole, or not tweeting and not being an asshole at this particular instant…

The question is, how do we know that the Congressional Republican is an asshole or not an asshole without opening the box?

A non-prize to the first poster who answers this question correctly.

Okay, but pretend you didn't hear that, though.

Please, don't eat me...

I'm begging of you!

Calling oneself a "Conservative Republican" is just an excuse to be an utter asshole

What’s the first thing a disgusting sexist woman-hating pig thinks of when Democrats pass filibuster reform?
If you’re the sleaziest pig of all, the first thing that pops into your head is, of course, raping women.
In his latest attempt to reduce his roster of advertisers to zero, Limbaugh said:

“Forget the Senate for a minute. Let’s say, let’s take ten people in a room and they’re a group. And the room is made up of six men and four women. Right? The group has a rule that the men cannot rape the women. The group also has a rule that says any rule that will be changed must require six votes of the 10 to change the rule.”
Limbaugh continued his analogy by saying that “every now and then some lunatic in the group proposes to change the rule to allow women to be raped. But they never were able to get six votes for it. There were always the four women voting against it and there was, you know, two guys.”

“Well, the guy that kept proposing that women be raped finally got tired of it,” Limbaugh told his listeners. “He was in the majority and he said, you know what, we’re going to change the rule. Now all we need is five. And the women said, ‘you can’t do that.’ ‘Yes we are, we’re the majority, we’re changing the rule.’ And then they vote. Can the women be raped?”

What shall we do with them?

I have no idea.

"…Castigating Ms. McKenna for virtually absconding with her fetus." I'm sorry… WTF?!?!

Custody Battle Raises Questions About the Rights of Women

November 23, 2013
When Bode Miller, the Olympic ski star known for daring Alpine racing, met Sara A. McKenna in San Diego last year through the high-end matchmaker Kelleher International, they were both professing interest in finding a marriage partner, she recalls.

The relationship did not last long — but she did become pregnant. And now the skier, 36, and Ms. McKenna, 27, a former Marine and firefighter who is attending Columbia University with G.I. Bill support, are locked in a cross-country custody fight that has become not only tabloid fodder but also a closely watched legal battle over the rights of pregnant women to travel and make life choices.

In December, when she was seven months pregnant and already sparring with Mr. Miller about their future relations, Ms. McKenna moved to New York to start school. Mr. Miller accused her of fleeing to find a sympathetic court, and a New York judge agreed, castigating Ms. McKenna for virtually absconding with her fetus. This allowed a California court to subsequently grant custody of the baby, a boy, to Mr. Miller and also set off alarm bells among advocates for women’s rights.

But on Nov. 14, a five-judge appeals court in New York said Ms. McKenna’s basic rights had been violated, adding, “Putative fathers have neither the right nor the ability to restrict a pregnant woman from her constitutionally protected liberty.”
