STFU stupak

via Jezebel, Stupak said the following to the AP re: his god-damned abortion language in HCR:

I’m more optimistic than I was a week ago. […] The president says he doesn’t want to expand or restrict current law (on abortion). Neither do I. That’s never been our position. So is there some language that we can agree on that hits both points – we don’t restrict, we don’t expand abortion rights? I think we can get there.

which…LOGICAL FAIL. OMG this makes my brain hurt and flames of rage shoot up my spine. IF YOU’RE NOT RESTRICTING, AND YOU’RE NOT EXPANDING, THEN WHAT ARE YOU DOING??!?!?! 

let’s do the word math:


so he’s basically admitting that there’s already restrictive abortion funding legislation in place, and that his amendment is a) redundant, and b) completely fucking stupid, but he’s just going to go ahead and be an obstructionist asshole about it so that his name stays in the papers and the anti-choice crowd thinks he’s on their side.

    Has any media figure asked him what the point of his amendment is if he claims it isn’t going to change anything? I know it’s been discussed in the blogs but has the question ever actually been put to him directly?
