The New GOP-Led House-- What a Bunch of Evil Wankers

Republicans, of course, are almost all giant idiot/asshole/dickshines, but the wankery of this group is still breathtaking:

Darrell Issa-- incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, obsessed with the "damage" caused by wikileaks, ACORN and the New Black Panthers.

Peter King-- ascending Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, ridiculously obsessed with muslim terrorists, but in the past, literally supported Irish terrorism.

But this is the kind of thing that really makes me hate them--
In voting against the International Protecting Girls by Preventing Child Marriage Act last Thursday, Republicans said they could not abide by the cost of the bill and voiced fears that it would result in the US government supporting abortions for women in the developing world.

But the bill's supporters say there is no mention of abortion in the bill, and the bill itself -- which asks that the president focus on efforts to prevent child marriage -- requires no new funding. (snip) The text of the bill does not mention abortion, contraception or family planning. Instead, it directs the president to make preventing child marriage a priority, especially in countries where more than 40 percent of girls under the age of 18 are married. The ways to do that, according to the bill: support educating communities on the dangers and health effects of child marriage, keep young girls in school, support female mentoring programs and make sure girls have access to health care services.

It was reportedly the mention of "access to health care services" that spurred Republican fears of abortion funding.

This epilogue write-up on Alan Grayson is worth reading, in light of the above creepiness of the Rethugs.
