Hal Sparks Radio Pgm -- "GOP's Continued Trouble With Consent" (02/08/14)

Happy 2nd Birthday to my niece, Norah!! I did today’s show on the drive to her birthday party, so I was in a festive, excitable mood. Which means, I had thoughts about some desperate audio from the right-wing extremists…

In case you missed it, here’s the story as only Wonkette can say it: Rand Paul Wants Dems To Give Back All Their Filthy Bill Clinton Sex Money

Rand Paul said more dumb things. This time they were about Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky and an oddly place “slam” on Senator Claire McCaskill. Hal continues to contend that all of this nonsense boils down to the Republican men being completely unable to understand the concept of consent.

I add that they don’t view a woman’s sexuality outside the context of a man’s desire, which means consent is irrelevant. Of course, this leads to my laughing at the idea Rush and his party have that sex with feminists is no fun. The only people who find this more funny than feminists themselves are the people who get to have sex with feminists because it’s the most fun of all the things ever.

As promised, here’s the link to the t-shirt by my friendCamille DeMere that I couldn’t read on air: I Only Fuck Feminists

Hal Sparks Radio Pgm — “SOTU and 1000 GOP Responses" (02/01/14)

If you follow me on twitter, you’ve already gotten most of my take on the State of the Union and the 100000 GOP responses. But Hal and I do it longer than 140 characters (Hey-yo!) and with audio fun. I obviously disagree that POTUS gave an appropriate nod to repro rights/access, but Hal and I both loved the Mad Men line because it so wonderfully set up CMR response and Rand Paul’s inanity.

All you need to know about Representative Cathy McMorris Rogers is in the NARAL graphic that accompanies this segment. Enjoy and pass it around. Here’s the Media Matters for America piece I referenced that fact checked FoxNews et al on the ACA: "Called on to Explain Big Story, Media Botches Obamacare."

Policy Mic did a great piece fact-checking all the responses: ”Fact Check: What Republicans Got Wrong in Their SOTU responses,”. FactCheck.org handled McMorris Rogers on “layoffs” because of the ACA: ”Is Obamacare Causing Health Care Layoffs?” And, finally, a Spokane paper broke down the lies in the claim that “Betty from Spokane” was seeing a massive increase in her health insurance costs because of the ACA: "'Betty in Spokane’ cited in McMorris Rodgers’ speech, declined health insurance options.”

Quick apology about my connection: anybody who wants to purchase a progressive radio station and deck it out with super equipment that’d rock. WCPT has phone issues; we do everything we can to minimize that.

Also, I’m running the segment after mine because the audio is too golden to set aside. Catch the Rush response to the SOTU if you can handle the misogyny. And Hal predicts the near future of the political fights — immigration, economics (i.e. jobs), ACA/healthcare, and ESPECIALLY clear division b/t how Dems and Repubs feel about a women controlling her body and make the same pay. Hal has never been more right: “It’s because they really do believe that women are less…and inherently weaker.”
