Rachel Maddow was in rare form last night as she ripped Governor Mitt Romney apart over his stance–and seemingly lack of intelligence–on birth control. Apparently, Romney dug himself a pretty deep hole at an Iowa town hall meeting when he failed to accurately answer a woman’s question about his policy on birth control after an appearance on Huckabee where he proclaimed that he would support a constitutional amendment defining conception as the beginning of life.
Apparently, what the nice governor doesn’t understand is what such a statement actually means. It’s fine if he wants to take a stance for or against abortion, but when he said that conception defines the beginning of life, he didn’t take into account that many of our birth control options would then be outlawed, including all hormonal contraceptives like the Pill, the IUD, the morning-after pill and the NuvaRing.
So Maddow took it upon her funny self to pop open a few beers and invite Romney and all the other clueless “fellas” out there to her “man cave” so she could teach them exactly how babies are made and exactly how birth control works. To which we at Blisstree would like to add a few messages of our own to Mitt and all his dumb friends:
It might be wise to learn about the physiology of half of your constituency?
Maybe politicians should spend more time trying to control their own private parts and not ours.
Maybe if you knew this meant you’d pretty much have to wear a condom for the rest of your life, you’d change your mind.
