Well, people…

I am in a bad way, so I’m very sorry to say that you shouldn’t expect any original work from me this week.

In its stead, please accept this offering from my brother in arms, The Rude Pundit.

Not that he knows he’s subbing for me. I’m sure someone will tell him, though. I figure, he’s LINKED to my dKos diary, for god’s sake — the least he can do is let me steal his stuff when I’m under the weather.

It’s a wee bit too rude for the un-initiated, so I’m putting it beneath the wheel, so to speak…


Bitches For Babies:

Sometimes the Bush administration just makes you wanna hang your head in shame and suck back the entire bottle of cheap vodka you keep in your freezer. Sometimes it’s like watching your mother argue to the death with a grocery clerk over the ten-cent price difference on a goddamn can of tomato soup.

So it was that the President sent a delegation from the United States to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women’s 49th Session, which was organized to look at the progress made since 1995, when the organization passed a significant declaration of the rights of women at the Fourth World Conference on Women.

Among other things, that declaration made in Beijing, done in the Clinton era, when “freedom” was a word that meant “freedom,” said,“The Fourth World Conference on Women reaffirms that reproductive rights rest on the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have the information and means to do so, and the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health. It also includes their right to make decisions concerning reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence, as expressed in human rights documents.”

Seems civilized, no? And, indeed, in this time of “culture of life” savagery, it seems almost Geneva-Convention-like quaint.

Ellen Sauerbrey led the U.S. delegation, as she is the U.S. Representative to the Commission since 2003. Sauerbrey, a two-time loser for governor of Maryland, spoke time and again at the conference that the Beijing document did not create any new, binding international rights.

Because, you know, the Bush administration is so sensitive to abiding by such documents.

Sauerbrey and the United States practically shut down the conference by demanding that the original document must be amended to say, specifically, that abortion is not a right. Sauerbrey, who looks like a plate of sour brie, was actually booed by the 6,000 delegates when she declared that not only is abortion not a right, but she also flogged the U.S. position on abstinence education on HIV/AIDS. In a grave in Uganda, the corpse of a sore-ridden thirteen year-old female rape victim rolled over.

Under pressure from the other nations, with only Qatar, Egypt, and the baboon-like visage of the dead Pope on its side, the U.S. dropped its demand for the amendment to the decade-old document.

Sauerbrey (c’mon, get it? “Sauerbrey,” “sour brie”?), in a speech transcribed on the website for United Families International (motto: “You’re Keepin’ That Fuckin’ Kid, You Brown Bitch”), she criticizes the U.N.’s policies towards families as “Hillary Clinton’s vision,” referencing Clinton’s participation in the Beijing conference.

Said Sauerbrey, “Sean Hannity, this morning, talked about visions and the differences in visions. My perception is that this prevailing vision at the U.N. is one that is based on rights, but rights without responsibility. Family, whatever you want it to be. Sexual freedom, anything goes. Practically every resolution that goes before the U.N. … somebody tries to figure out a way to put in “reproductive services” . . . “Parental leave is the solution in many countries because women need to always be out in the work force and we need to have government parental leave so that the women can take at least a little time, or maybe the husband, so the woman should stay in the work force, and the husband should stay with the children for a short period of time before they go into a daycare arena. This is not the vision that most Americans share.”

Sauerbrey was joined in the U.S. delegation at the UNCSW Conference by Janet Parshall, who hosts a popular conservative Christian radio program, Janet Parshall’s America, which promotes a vision of “America” that would make Cotton Mather say, “Man, don’t you people have any fuckin’ fun?” before giving up the cloth and taking up the moonshine and fuckin’ syphilitic whores and lovin’ the itchin’ ’cause it makes him feel alive.

Parshall is a former spokesperson for James Dobson’s Family Research Council (motto: “You’re Keepin’ That Fuckin’ Kid, Bitch, and You’re Gonna Spank It”) who opposes embryonic cell research, abortion, and nose picking. Parshall said that the “sanctity of human life is the definitive issue in America,” railing against a “doctrine of death” before she condemned gays to eternal damnation in a fiery hell and pushed the button on the lethal injection for a retarded minor.

The final member of the Bush triumvirate of official delegates to the conference is Susan Hirschmann, former Tom DeLay chief of staff who went with the Hammer on a gambling lobbyists’ funded golfing trip to England. As chief of the FEC investigated 527 the Leadership Forum, Hirschmann suckled at the soft money teat like a baby mole snuggling through the cold dirt to its mother. Now, she’s a lobbyist for whatever corporate johns wanna pay her to shake her K Street-cred in the faces of members of Congress.

Yep, quite a face the United States presented to the world, from wacko right-wing to not-as-wacko right wing, as Bush’s bitches took another giant shit for America at a gathering of nations.

Oh, the rest of the world celebrated the conference. So perhaps the choice here is between being a pussy or a cunt.
