Taking GOP imagination to the next level in North Carolina
Have you noticed that the GOP, forever known as the Party of Ideas, still has plenty left in its tank in North Carolina? In a uniquely progressive approach to show the ladies who's boss in the abortion battle, the sovereign white guys in the state senate finessed Planned Parenthood and other maladjusted groups by passing a strict anti-abortion bill sneakily attached as an amendment to a measure opposing Sharia Law. That was followed by a similar amendment slipped into a motorcycle safety bill in the House. With more states considering abortion bills, it's now being reliably reported that other Defenders of their Faith plan to ban the celebration of Adolph Hitler Day in America, a brilliantly clever step in smuggling more anti-abortion laws into the books.
