Sandra Fluke Says If We Like Covered Wagons and No Electricity, We Should Vote for Romney

On Wednesday, Georgetown grad Sandra Fluke introduced President Barack Obama at a campaign rally in Denver focused on women's reproductive rights. Fluke, who unfortunately has the ignominious media epithet "the woman Rush Limbaugh called a 'slut,'" told her audience that, if they wanted to go backwards in time to when novacane wasn't a thing yet and surgeons were judged by how many limbs they could saw off in a minute, they should go ahead and vote for Mittens come November.

She accused Romney of wanting to wind back the clock on women's health issues, or at least not being strong enough to stand up to those who would actively legislate against women's reproductive freedom:

[Obama] defended my right to speak without being attacked," Fluke said. "Mr. Romney could only say those weren't the words he would have chosen. Well, Mr. Romney, you're not going to be the candidate we choose.

Fluke added that a Romney presidency would unravel "the rights that generations of women have fought for," and that the only campaign promises he'd made to women so far were "dangerous promises to take us backward." All this talk about time travel is starting to make me think that Mittens has a DeLorean sitting in a garage in the Caymans, and that, if elected, he'll start taking us on field trips back to the Jurassic period, which sounds cool but who knows what havoc even the slightest misstep could wreak on our present? No, a Mittens presidency would definitely constitute a severe threat to the delicate time-space continuum.

The really sad thing is, Romney is not even as radical as members of the left would hyperbole. No matter how much the GOP tries to distance him from it, the man created Affordable Healthcare v.1. He's not a National Republican, he like Bloomberg and Giuliani and others ran a state or city that was traditionally liberal and either had to adapt to that circumstance and create a balance or not get elected at all.

The problem is the National Republicans turn any reasonable, practical, thoughtful Presidential candidate into some creature out of an Anne Rice novel (re: John McCain). Romney's main failing is he is incapable to of reading the GOP script with any believability, and so the only thing he has going for him with the Right is their A.B.O. voting plan: Anything But Obama and conservative pundits running Obama's real and/or imagined failures 24/7, as opposed to Romney's virtues.... which are too liberal for their tastes.
