Don't know what more you want done....

2) As for the poll worker, I say she should be prosecuted with her own recorded words used against her. A good, healthy sentence is called for. My only beef is that we can't do the same for TX legislators who routinely vote multiple times by impersonating other legislators.

3) Maybe Salazar should have just qualified what he said in terms of a 'legitimate rape' and mentioned that 'the female body has a way of shutting that whole thing down.". I won't apologize for him unlike Republican'ts who apologize for Akin.

4) You correctly cite tip #9 ("Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm), but then - in a breathtaking wing nut interpretation - amazingly twist that into "the implication that a woman acting on her own behalf to protect herself could be better off simply submitting to rape." [Actually, I'd pull #9 just because things could get worse not only for actions but inaction.]

You seem to be having a rough day....
