Consider it a sign

Furious foetishists have been foaming like rabid hamsters in heat over the Obama administration’s nomination of Governor Kathleen Sebelius as Health and Human Services Secretary. The pro-choice Sebelius is such a good nominee for the position that even Kansas Senator Sam Brownback, a fetus fetishizer of the highest order himself, endorsed her (of course, he wants her old job, but that’s beside the point).

Since the nomination was announced last month, anti-choicers have been in outraged and feverish “Stop Sebelius!” campaign overdrive, hoping that onside Republican Senators would submit to their will and block the nomination. How’s that working out?:

Anti-abortion activists and other conservatives are not happy with Republican senators for not taking a tough line against Health and Human Services Secretary-designate Kathleen Sebelius.

Sebelius, the Democratic governor of Kansas, made her Capitol Hill debut last week at two confirmation hearings. Anti-abortion groups have been campaigning against her nomination to the Cabinet based on her record in favor of abortion rights. […]

But when presented with a chance to attack President Obama’s nominee last week, Republican senators passed. During her appearances before the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) and Finance committees, Sebelius did not field a single question about abortion or her unpaid taxes.

Conservative groups that oppose Sebelius’s confirmation are displeased with their erstwhile allies in the Senate – and say they will make their voices heard while lawmakers are in their home states for the current two-week recess.

“I think it’s appalling,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a fundraising operation for candidates who oppose abortion. “I think this is why Republicans are in the minority.”

Oh, Marge. Silly Marge. Stupid-as-a-bag-of-braindead-hammers Marge. Batshit-freaking-insane Marge. The GOP spent 8 years engaged in all manner of idiotic dumbfuckery at the behest of crotch-obsessed religious right whackjobs — that’s why they got their asses handed to them in November.

I’d take this as a sign that they’ve finally figured that out.

    As much as I would love to, I wouldn’t bet on it. It’s just a shift in a cultural war that by definition can never be won in this current culture, but we’re getting closer.

    Having a pro-choice Health and Human Services Secretary will certainly help feed that persecution complex they so tenderly nurture. Poor dears.

    DAMMIT JANET! wonders if the earthquake in Italy is a sign that God hates the Pope.

    Bruce – Yes, these things do go in cycles, and right now just happens to be the “down” time for the religious right. It will come back again, though — the difference is that it’s getting less politically-driven. Younger religious conservatives are less focused on things like abortion and gay marriage, and more interested in other issues, and different ways of impacting the culture. The old way, which was to impose their will on everyone, seems to be on the way out.

    Dr.Prole – All I can say is, good, I hope they enjoy their persecution high. And I hope they get used to it, because it ain’t going away for a looooooong time.

    deBeauxOs – LOL, good analogy.

Wait. What?
