Repulsive as he can be, Boortz is a feminist’s BFF on the male-dominated talk radio airways. He went off just this morning on one of his bi-annual rants against “aborto-centrists,” declaring reproductive rights a conservative value.
Too bad that memo hasn’t made its way to the Gold Dome, where idiot-based legislation to restrict women’s reproductive rights is chronically floated around like the place was a freakin’ race track. From today’s AJC:
A Georgia lawmaker demoted over an election for the state Department of Transportation board had talked beforehand with Speaker Glenn Richardson (R-Hiram) about a deal to trade his vote for the House leader’s backing on anti-abortion legislation.
A Richardson aide on Wednesday confirmed that state Rep. Martin Scott (R-Rossville) and the speaker had discussed —- and dismissed —- the idea briefly a few hours before Scott and other lawmakers re-elected Mike Evans chairman of the state DOT board.
Full article here. One day I hope reproductive rights advocates will add some fuel to their often impotent tactical fires, chronic email newsletters and petitions and such, and adopt a more Boortz-esque rhetorical approach. Talk about your wishful thinking.
Am I the only one missing Giuliani in the race about right now?
