Zandar’s Morning Read: A Big Something For The Ladies

Over at MSNBC’s new blog Lean Forward, Sandra Fluke weighs in on the multiple provisions in the Affordable Care Act that take effect today involving substantive changes in new and renewed insurance plans for women’s health.  Among the new provisions:

- It guarantees them a free annual well-woman visit, and if needed, follow-up visits. That visit will now include a no-cost screening for domestic or intimate partner violence. For sexually-active women, the visit must also include a free annual screening for HIV and counseling for other sexually transmitted infections.

- It entitles women over 30 to a DNA screening for HPV (human pappilomavirus) every three years, regardless of pap smear results. Detecting and treating HPV will reduce these women’s risk of cervical cancer. Continue reading

The George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina Kerfuffle: For Teh Google, Sandra Fluke, and Glory!

TBogg has a post up over at Firedoglake that is balls-to-the-wall hilarious. You see, George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina doesn’t quite understand how teh Google works, and has threatened to sue TBogg over a post that Teh Boggs wrote about how George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina is a colossal douchebag.

In short, George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina likes to tweet about how Sandra Fluke is a slut and a cunt and all of the stuff that assholes like George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina routinely call women like Fluke who dare speak out for themselves.

While reading TBogg’s post about George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina, I read the following comment, the subject of which is George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina, and which was written by internet sage and purveyor of hilarity, Betty Cracker (of Rumproast and Balloon Juice):

Boy, that George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina sure doesn’t understand how the Google works, does George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina? I hear there are online rep management organizations that could help George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina if George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina were willing to pay them thousands and thousands of dollars.

But I’m not even sure that would help George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina since the name, “George Tierney,” and the location, “Greenville, South Carolina,” appear on high traffic blogs and popular Twitter streams. And people keep saying “George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina.”

I think George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina is shit out of luck. Unless he wants to change his name to something other than “George Tierney” and perhaps move away from Greenville, South Carolina. Maybe George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina shouldn’t have been such a giant dick. Lesson learned, George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina?

I think Betty is spot on about this George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina business. As such, I have decided to blog in solidarity with TBogg against the baseless litigious threats of George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina and to laugh in George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina’s general direction:

‘God Hates Fags’ Church Preparing Ad for Oink Limbaugh Show

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that Fred Phelps  and the bigoted wackaloons at Westboro Baptist Church are fixin’ to advertise on the Rush Limbaugh Show, if Oink will have them:

Guess who’s knocking on Rush Limbaugh’s door as his advertisers flee like rats from a sinking ship? It’s the people behind the infamous GodHatesFags website — the Westboro Baptist Church, the most notorious gay-bashing group in America — and they’re ready to step in to keep the embattled Limbaugh on the air.

Sandra Fluke’s Boyfriend Is the Jewwiest Jew that Ever Did Jew

The mini-Breitbarts are ass-deep in the Fluke Countertops Inspection Extravaganza and it’s not going so well. Nary a granite countertop has been found, but never fear! The idiot bloggers at The Graph have uncovered mind-bottling skullduggery: Ms. Fluke’s boyfriend’s countertops are Jewish.

The hell you say?!

Yes. JEWISH. And socialist. And radical. And Democrat… I mean Demonrat.  But mostly Jewish.

These brave bloggers scoured Facebook for pictures of Sandra Fluke’s Jewish boyfriend and her Jewish boyfriend’s Jewish parents and slapped them up on a blog for all the world to see. DO YOU SEE? This is what radical Jewish Zionist socialist radicals who graduated from Jew University aka Brandeis look like. DO YOU SEE?

Sandra Fluke: ‘These attempts to silence women and the men who support them have clearly failed.’

Sandra Fluke penned an outstanding op-ed for CNN in response to the personal smears and insults lobbed by Rush Limbaugh, Patricia Heaton, and CNN’s own Dana Loesch.

It’s a must-read:

(CNN) — Last month, students from several Catholic universities gathered to send a message to the nation that contraception is basic health care. I was among them, and I was proud to share the stories of my friends at Georgetown Law who have suffered dire medical consequences because our student insurance does not cover contraception for the purpose of preventing pregnancy.

I joined these students in speaking at a media event because I believe that stories of how real women are affected are the most powerful argument for access to affordable, quality reproductive health care services.

I also joined these students because now is a critical time to raise this issue in our public consciousness. Continue reading

Is it Time to Expand the #StopRush Campaign to #CNN?

 For the past couple weeks, I’ve been highlighting the misogyny and outright disgusting behavior of a cabal of right-wingers, with Oink Limbaugh serving as the Misogynist-in-Chief.  (See below for a full list of posts.)

Limbaugh’s sexist rant against Sandra Fluke caused a social media firestorm, and that firestorm has yielded results. More than 150 advertiser have fled from Limbaugh like rats fleeing a sinking ship, forcing Limbaugh’s show to air free PSAs and, in some cases, to air nothing at all.  That’s right: radio silence during Limbaugh’s show.  It’s never happened before.

The StopRush campaign has done so much damage to Limbaugh that his advertising network, Premiere Networks made the unprecedented and “unusual” move of suspending its ad buys for two weeks. The claimed reason is branding something-or-other and makes absolutely no sense; I suspect that the Limbaugh crew expects that in two weeks, liberals will have moved on to a new issue and forgotten all about Limbaugh.

Sorry, that’s not going to happen.  Not this time. We’re not going to let that happen.

While we must keep up the pressure on Limbaugh’s local and national advertisers, and I think it might be time to take a look at the sort of hate speech that CNN — the purported “place for news” — supports by continuing to feature Breitbart’s hate-apprentice and Erik Erickson’s BFF, Dana Loesch.

CNN’s Dana Loesch Suggests that Sandra Fluke’s Boyfriend Pay for Her Contraception

Dana Loesch is brain-deficient.

Dana Loesch, who is valiantly trying (and failing) to carry Breitbart’s torch, has done some digging into Sandra Fluke’s personal life because of course she has.

Loesch, after discovering that Fluke’s boyfriend is the son of an “entrenched Democrat,” and that Fluke and her boyfriend are currently on vacation in California, concludes that Fluke’s boyfriend should be paying for Fluke’s contraception.  After all, it’s unfathomable that Fluke can’t fund her own sluttiness when she has a “Democrat” boyfriend and enough money to make the harrowing journey from one coast to the other.

Yes, really.  Dana Loesch is that stupid.

Why is Dana Loesch on CNN?  Her idiocy is much better suited for Fox News.  Why doesn’t CNN bid her adieu?  For an organization that is supposed to be a news network [insert derisive snort], CNN is not doing itself any favors by continuing to allow such a mental incompetent and pathological liar to further pollute its  brand (such as it is.)
