Matt Taibbi: 'Life Doesn't Change Too Terribly Much In America No Matter Which Party Wins'

Matt Taibbi: 'Life Doesn't Change Too Terribly Much In America No Matter Which Party Wins'

“I read this article, and he's wrong on two counts: Obamacare and reproductive rights.

Obamacare hasn't gone into full effect yet, but average Americans are seeing benefits today that would have disappeared overnight. And maybe not foremost on his married mind, but I assume by the end of a four-year Romney term millions of average women would have felt the difference.”

“And does Matt think Romney would have signed the Lily Ledbetter Act? Or followed through on removing DADT?
There's more of that sort of thing to come.”

“This punishment inconveniences the parents, who will then be more likely to effect discipline on their kids where the school can't.”

“What's wrong with that?

A civilized society should take care of those who cannot take care of themselves. All others should earn their own keep.”

“So do I. But where idiots like Carolla imply it's genetic or hormonal, I believe the disparity is socially conditioned. Men don't want women to be funny. Women learn, at an early age, that their role is to giggle at jokes, not deliver them.”

“Wealthy women who stay at home with their kids have found an "employer". The sense among conservatives is that if you're going to have kids, you have to secure means for them one way or another. If you don't have a husband or a boyfriend who will work to support you, don't have kids. But don't have abortions either....and don't use birth control.”

“Barack Obama doesn't issue food stamps...that's a state-level function. But Newt Gingrich would be the president who re-introduces child labor to America? Who would pay 30 kids a quarter per hour rather than one adult a fair wage?”

“Totally indefensible. His singular focus on Saddam Hussein over all the other dictators in the area, much less in the world, belies his insincerity. He believed in a new Crusade, not the Iraq War specifically.”

“....huh? Were you trying to insult me just then? Thanks for correcting my spelling.

"What's [Bachmann's] looks got to do with it, Lewis?" This is not insulting, defamatory or disrespectful...it's a valid response to an insult lodged by Lewis against Bachmann. Keith Olbermann himself insults people all the time, questions people every night- it's his job. He readily insults women for their looks. I think his defensiveness is more about that than anything...his right, and the right of his guests, to call women ugly rather than address them on the issues.

No other explanation for his bizarre reaction here makes any sense.”
