    There was a woman there, whom the Democrats wanted to have testify. A Georgetown law student whose friend lost an ovary because Georgetown doesn’t cover birth control.

    Admittedly, it would be better if the friend was there, because ‘a friend of mine’ anecdotes aren’t a very good basis for lawmaking.

    Issa said she wasn’t “appropriate or qualified” to discuss the matter. Whereas, I guess, a 50+ year old virgin is.


  2. Rep. Issa has clearly just given a new definition for the phrase “out of touch.”

    I don’t see how this isn’t devastating in the next election. It should also gut the Presidential race. Whichever of the misogynists gets the nomination, he’ll be called on this, and since he won’t dare rebuke his own party … there you go. A Presidential candidate just said that no woman is qualified to talk about women’s health care. Issa’s statement that no women were needed because it wasn’t about reproduction is a statement that should be played more or less non-stop by his opponents who want to unseat the pig.

    Dang, I just violated my no-name-calling rule, didn’t I? Oh, well … he deserved it.
