The Party of Personal Responsibility Really Steps It Up

Friday, July 3rd, 2009 @ 2:48 pm | Uncategorized

Some of the saddest laughs you’ll ever get. Here’s a woman whose marriage is in ruin because her husband had an affair. And whose fault is that? The liberals, of course! Nobody used to have affairs back in the good old days. Yep…when your Republican governor husband cheats on you, it’s a sure thing the liberals and the gays are to blame!

Really looking forward to the next election cycle, when people who desire the election of more Democrats can call the GOP “the party of Mark Sanford” over & over & over again until it’s the first thing you think of when you see an (R) next to some guy’s name.

    Holy smokes, she didn’t just blame the liberals, she blamed the gays!

    When will the gays stop perniciously influencing men to have sex with multiple women?

    Yeah, you’re right. It is really sad. It’s sad that a “thinks things through instead of blindly following the party line” liberal would fall for an OBVIOUS satire piece. TheDiscust.com is a satire site, like The Onion. It even says so, right at the bottom. The article isn’t true. Duh.

    GreRee, you can claim a bit of pwnage there.

    However, this isn’t a very obvious satire, as you claim. Republicans actually believe this, and constantly talk about gay marriage as something that will somehow ruin or destroy straight marriage. It’s one of the planks of their party.

    Republican says gay marriage leads to mass murder:
    http://www.christiannewswire.com/news/904759988.html

    “This secular value system is also reflected in the ‘sexual revolution,’ which is the driving force behind the push for ‘gay marriage;’ and the Iowa Supreme Court decision is another indication that despite all the damage this revolution has caused to children, adults, family life and society (think abortion, divorce, pornography, rape, sexual abuse of children, sexually transmitted diseases, trafficking in women and children, unwed teen mothers and more), it continues to advance relentlessly.

    Here’s Senator Sam Brownback, blaming out-of-wedlock birth on gay marriage:
    http://someguysarenormal.blogspot.com/2007/09/dont-blame-gay-marriage-unless-youve.html

    “When you do these vast social experiments — and that’s what this is, when you redefine marriage. It’s a vast social experiment. They’re not done in isolation. They impact the rest of the culture around you. When you take the sacredness out of marriage, you will drive the marriage rates down. And currently in this country, currently we’re at 36 percent of our children born out of wedlock. You can raise a good child in that setting, but we know the best place is between a mom and a dad bonded together for life.”

    Couple that with Republican leader Rush Limbaugh blaming Obama for Sanford’s affair:

    http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/06/limbaugh-on-the-sanford-affair-its-obamas-fault.php?ref=fpa

    “This is almost like, ‘I don’t give a damn, the country’s going to Hell in a handbasket, I just want out of here,'” said Limbaugh. “He had just tried to fight the stimulus money coming to South Carolina. He didn’t want any part of it. He lost the battle. He said, ‘What the Hell. I mean, I’m — the federal government’s taking over — what the Hell, I want to enjoy life.'”

    So yeah, this report sounded about as unnatural as a “Bicyclist Killed” headline. It’s satire, but it’s a dig at Republicans, and they deserve it.

    lol oops

    Sorry, Jeromy, but it was obvious satire. I saw a link to the article on a blog site, where it was presented as legitimate. So I clicked on it and read it. Aside from the general outlandishness of the article, there was this, supposedly from the Governor’s Office: “…we’re not commenting on any of the first lady’s statements, but we like where she’s going with this.” How could you imagine ANYONE who worked for the Governor saying something like this? So I did what I always do when I read a news article. I checked to see who the source was. Maybe that’s something you should start doing in the future, instead of just blindly swallowing what your political party feeds you.

    GreRee’s right, there is a line in there that deviates from reality. We definitely overlooked that line.
