Nikki Haley: "Women don't care about contraception"

It's been awhile since a South Carolina politician embarrassed us publicly, nationwide. Are you nostalgic for the days of Governor Mark Sanford hitting the news every night? Or maybe you miss media spectacles like Congressman Joe Wilson rudely bellowing during the State of the Union address? Not to worry! Our Tea Party Goddess Governor has put us BACK ON THE MEDIA MAP.

Her recent doofus-appearance on The View, has gone viral. Yes, South Carolina is BACK IN THE NEWS!

Do you love it or what?



That's right, sports fans, "Women don't care about contraception"! And that's a direct quote, that we should keep repeating forever. In fact, I am proposing bumper stickers: "Women don't care about contraception"--Governor Haley. Whaddaya think?

How do we get stuck with these horrorshows? Well, let's just keep her talking, so 1) she can't get re-elected and 2) she won't get snatched up for some cabinet position (as Palin has not been), because she has exposed herself as too stupid.

Keep up the good work, Governor!

Jojo, it still works for me! (?) Hmmm.

Maybe the site is overloaded because nobody can quite believe their eyes and ears. ;)

Maybe Nikki Haley doesn't care about contraception and has an overly inflated sense of self. Ya think?

Chris said...

I find this a tad unfair. I think it's clear from the context that what she means is, "Women don't care about contraception as a voting issue." She was unwise to leave herself open to making a dumb soundbite, but Republicans like to jump all over Democrats when they do the same, often leaving out the full context or twisting words to mean things that they clearly don't mean. I don't think we should stoop to that level. I do think Haley is on the wrong side of this argument, but I don't think that one sentence is as damning as you make it out to be.

Also, it should be noted that Joy Behar makes a false statement in this clip. Rick Santorum never said that he will take away anyone's contraception. He has, however, said that he believe that the states have the right to ban contraception if they wish. He has argued against Lawrence v. Texas, defending the constitutionality of anti-sodomy and anti-birth controls. But I don't think he's ever flat-out advocated that these laws should be passed. Like Haley, his actual position is already wrong enough--we don't need to exaggerate it. Doing so only makes us look as dishonest as the opposition.

Wow, THANKS for posting this! What a genius we have for Governeor. I think she was spot ON! That dufus red head was speechless. WOW! Great job Nikki! May be that you are a tad jealous that we have a successful conservative women in the Governor's mansion. May be that it upsets you that she is successful out side of the normal liberal strongholds such as education, media, and pornagraphy. I will pass this link to many of my conservative friends- they will get a kick out of the dufus red head being quieted and the way Nikki spouted the truth that women care about SMART issues and not just the "womb to grave" big government emotional talking points.

Chris, well, I'm a scrapper, and if you stumble, I am all over you. As Tip O'Neill said, politics ain't beanbag. It's not for idiots who can't put together a decent soundbite. IMHO, that's reason enough to get rid of you.

West, blah blah blah, you really need to get some new material. I would assume that someone like Governor Haley, who enjoys screwing other men besides her husband, would be in favor of birth control. Shows what I know!

When you guys get your asses handed to you in the next election, I guess you'll learn.

You just contradicted yourself. Oh so he just says THE STATES should take it away and you think that somehow means HE isn't taking it away? What a crock of hairsplitting BULLSHIT!

Rick Santorum is a PIG and I wish I could force HIM to have a baby. Or maybe 7, as many as he has forced on his Catholic wife who has NO CHOICE. Scumbag.

West, you can't spell or write worth shit and think your governor is a genius. Perfect!

"defending the constitutionality of ... anti-birth controls"

yeah for sure. I just cannot decide if I want 14 children or a life with no sex.

bryce said...

west u r comic gift that keeps on giving. plz keep jokes comin !

West said...

Geez Daisy, You allow Mama Moretti to hurl all those insults- and she gets away with it- what about that living room analogy I always get?
And then she calls herself Mama Moretti, but yet demands government birth control...go figure...

DaisyDeadhead said...

West, yes, living room... rude, right wing people who just got here (and are still on probation, be advised) are not as welcome as feminist friends who have been here years and whom I've known since 2003. Get a clue!

sheila said...

You should totally make the bumper sticker, LOL, oh gosh Daisy, always bringing a smile to my face. :)

Good Republican women know their place, don't they?

It's a full time job deflecting from the lunacy of their extremism.
