“I checked. The Rape Kit is for gathering evidence, but Texas hospitals also give the woman the morning-after pill and clean her up.
She misstated it but is basically accurate.
I really hate to admit it...”

“"In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out,"
"clean her up", but Texas hospitals also give the woman the morning-after pill and clean her up."...your words, you're just as ign.orant as she is.
All hospitals in America have the morning after pill.
A Rape kit is for gathering evidence.
Many things are offered to a rape victim in a hospital including medications to prevent, combat , HIV, STD, Pregnancy, etc.
Please link us to your fact check...I can't find it stated anywhere, that a morning after pill is listed as being part of a Texas Rape Kit and "is given" to a rape victim?”

“Still not accurate because the morning after pill does not cause an abortion.”

“A rape kit is NOT a morning after pill. You embarrass yourself.”

“The morning after pill does not induce an abortion, it prevents fertilization. So no, she is not even close to being "basically accurate", but nice try.”

“Except that themorning after pill doesn't "clean out" a woman. A woman who takes the morning aftrer pill can still become pregnant, and it will have no effect if she is pregnant. It's also worth considering the low rate that rape is reported, and thus the low rate that women who are raped seek medical care right away at the hospital.”

“No it's not basically accurate, they are two completely separate things. A morning after pill has nothing to do with a rape kit, which is to collect evidence, regardless of whether the woman opts for a morning after pill or not.”

“Meanwhile, on Planet Earth...
Obama is divisive - name one measure that the Republicans have worked with him.
He has actually proposed cuts to SS - the wrong entitlement, but an entitlement.
Defense is bloated and we're ending two wars - when will it ever be time for a cut on your planet?
Bury us in debt? Saint Ronnie tripled the debt, Bush II doubled it - in GOOD Times. Bush handed Obama with a budget 1.3 trillion in debt. This is Obama's fault?
Would you conservatives please give us less dogma and more facts?”
“Actually, no one can avoid the fact that Bush's policies ran the country into a ditch and the current crop of GOP'ers have the same exact policies!
A recession caused by housing usually takes five years to recover from - a financial one usually takes seven.
The fools are those that thought we'd return to prosperity immediately...”
“Uh - the XL route that was under consideration this summer was not approved because of environmental concerns. The new route has been proposed, but not vetted. How long should it take to do an environmental study on a 1500 mil pipeline? A lot longer than 60 days!!”

The reason that Hillary should be asked to drop out (perhaps by a mass migration of superdelegates) is not that she is a bad candidate - the Dems are blessed with two great candidates - but that she has turned into a bad Democrat when confronted with a better candidate.
Saying that the Republican nominee is a better choice than the presumptive Democratic nominee is - well, treason! Hillary - you should quit before you lose your future appeal.
Can you just see John McCain's commercials this fall starring Hillary? Something like "McCain has passed the CinC test, I have, and Obama hasn't", "McCain has the experience, I have the experience, Obama has a speech", and Bill's "Hillary and McCain are patriotic."”

“I hope we can keep our troops in Iraq for 100 years, because the only way congress would allow that to happen would be if they weren't getting killed.
I guess it is pretty unrealistic to expect victory though.
When has McCain suggested declaring War on Iran? I've been following this election pretty closely and as far as I remember he has never proposed an invasion. Do you think that Congress would approve such a war?”
“"After all, she is the elder, she is the senior of the two senators, she was in this race first, and she has an enormous constituency. In all other aspects of life, the etiquette would be to let her go first."
These are your criteria to choose a president? Silly, silly, silly post.
It's a shame that with all of these benefits, she has managed to blow the campaign.”

“When I read that, I decided the blog was irony. How else to interpret such silly "reasons" for her to be given the nomination?”
“Clinton should give up because:
1). She will have fewer delegates at the convention.
2). She will have fewer popular votes by the time of the convention.
3). She will have one path - Tonya Harding and back rooms - to the nomination. If it's taken from Obama in the back rooms, McCain will probably win.
Every $ spent by Obama attacking Hillary - or the other way around - is a $ not spent in attacking McCain!”

“He can't use primary money for the general, so your last point is silly. The popular vote question depends on whether you want to continue to penalize FLA dems for a gop governor (and possible VP nominee) decision, as well as the rest of the race. The reason for her to step aside is that this press corps has made a decision: Obama vs. McCain. They made the decision after Iowa and it's the way its going to be.”
