Daily French Roast

The new Republican term for blogs like AOC is “elite media”. Slate writes that Santorum is incredibly angry that the “elite media” is dogging him because of his conservative religious views. The Republican candidate pulls out the stops with one appalling assertion after another — from the Devil attacking America to why he’s opposed to birth control but chooses not to talk about his manufacturing proposals on ‘Face the Nation’. Duh?
Today was the first time we read that Santorum wants creationism taught in America’s classrooms, as an alternative to the scientific theory of evolution. Pushing intelligent design in classrooms was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge in 2005, based on a lack of scientific evidence for the theory.
Santorum insisted just days ago that President Obama’s policy decisions aren’t based on Biblical principles. It’s Santorum who promotes a theocracy for America and then criticizes journalists for asking questions about an agenda never openly discussed in a presidential election race.
The Vatican accepts the scientific theory of evolution and the big bang theory. The basic difference between atheists and the Vatican is that the pontiff believes God causes the big bang. Read details of “Scientific Insights into the Evolution of the Universe and of Life,” put on by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in 2008.
In response to a new abortion bill in Georgia that would punish procedures performed after the 20th week of pregnancy with prison sentences of between one and 10 years, Georgia Democrats introduced a new bill that will outlaw vasectomies in Georgia, a procedure that leaves “thousands of children … deprived of birth.”
Rep Yasmin Neal, a Democrat from Jonesboro, a suburb of Atlanta, introduced HB 1116, outlawing vasectomies unless needed to avert serious injury or death. via CNN
Virginia Ultrasound & Personhood Update
Virginia Republicans have sent their personhood bill back to committee, effectively taking it off the legislative agenda for this year. It hasn’t died, just gone lurking to the back burner until the pressure is off. The Virginia legislature did pass a bill today requiring an external ultrasound, not the ‘transvaginal’ procedure Governor McDonnell supported.
How much harm has been done to the Governor’s political aspirations remains unclear. All polls show that women are turning against Republicans faster than the data can be polled.
