Here we go..Rep CathyMcMorris Rodgers prepares her SOTU response in a photo op with her baby....

Check out the photo at the link......shades of Sarah Palin. GOP has no shame. And GOP women are worse than GOP men....



Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), who will deliver the televised Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union speech next week, on Friday shared a photo of her text alongside an adorable aide -- her newborn Brynn Catherine.

"I've got my #SOTU remarks in one hand and 2-month old Brynn in another. It really doesn't get much better than this!" the chair of the House Republican Conference wrote in caption.

5. It is, apparently

"OK" for Cathy to work as a politician and still be a good mom but Wendy Davis can't be if she goes to school or becomes a politician?
It's an incredibly different world for women in the GOP.......

6. I 'confess' to being McMorris-Rodgers constituent

Please don't expect anything but a *canned* speech from Cathy McMorris-Rodgers. She isn't known for her intellectual curiosity--because her fundamentalist religiosity determines her public policies. It isn't just that she graduated from an unaccredited Bible college, but that she obediently complies with the GOP's dangerous slide toward *theocracy*.

McMorris Rodgers *always* (mutely and demurely) stands behind Boehner in *every* photo op, so, IMHO, she should be called "BB" (Behind Boehner). "BB" is in lock step with the rest of the Know Nothing Bible Thumpers who dominate the GOP. McMorris-Rodgers has been vehemently anti-woman and pro-plutocrat with her *extremist* voting record and I'm *ashamed* that she is my congresswoman. I was *appalled* to be stuck writing "BB" *numerous* letters when she repeatedly voted against the Violence Against Women Act. What kind of woman votes against the Violence Against Women Act????

McMorris-Rodgers was selected and 'groomed' by white male "Christian" fundamentalist GOP leaders because she's a conformist "Biblical wife" and..drum roll...she *Qualifies* as a 'good woman' because she was a "V-word" bride! Yes, sad to say, in the minds of the GOP "Christian" leadership, women should be completely "pure" (meaning zero sexual experience) or they're worthless. For Huckabee et al., single women shouldn't have birth control because they should be 'pure as the driven snow'.

A "Biblical wife" is subservient to males, so "BB" stands mutely behind Boehner year after year. Now, when they can't think of a *male* to give the speech, they finally tell "BB" to SPEAK! "BB" doesn't have a mind of her own--she's a fundamentalist robot. Her speech will rage against "Obamacare" even though the Washington state exchanges are *very* popular because *many* people in eastern Washington have had NO HEALTHCARE. McMorris Rodgers would take away her own constituents' health care if she could and that's why we need to find a strong Dem candidate to run against "BB".

Even though over 2/3 of the low income Spokane women who go to Planned Parenthood for basic care have had no access to any other medical care, "BB" McMorris-Rodgers has been rabidly opposed to Planned Parenthood. The Spokane PP was *bombed* years ago and there are always sign-waving, Bible verse spouting "Christian" pickets. These pickets block the sidewalk and interfere with access to PP They are all PURE WHITE Republicans--I *never* saw a person of color protesting at the Spokane Planned Parenthood.

FWIW, when I was volunteering at the Spokane PP, the *only* way I got those angry white "Christians" to stop blocking the sidewalk was when I said that if they are really "pro life", each of them should adopt a "brown child" and put that child through college. These "Christians" immediately recoiled in horror at the very idea of raising a "brown child" and that's how I got them to back off so I could enter PP. These "pro life" protesters are anti-sexual freedom--which they equate with being "pro life." These Pure White PP protesters have*zero* empathy for what happens to unplanned, unwanted children--unless they are Ultra White Babies that can be adopted by a "Biblical" family.

There is a reason Utah has the highest porn and antidepressant usage--and Spokane politics have been dominated by Right Wingers just as extreme as anyone in nearby Idaho. The Mullah-like attitudes and policies of people like "BB" McMorris-Rodgers are genuinely dangerous to our basic liberties. "BB" is a GOP "Trojan horse"--she's dangerous precisely because she looks so demure. "BB" is *wholly owned* by the reactionary forces dominating the GOP-controlled House. The GOP has big plans for "BB" because they know she is obedient and unquestioning.

McMorris-Rodgers always says she doesn't want "Big Government"--except that she supports complete government control over women's bodies and their sexuality. There really isn't anything more offensive than a misogynistic *woman* who spouts Bible verses to "justify" her Invincible Ignorance and profound lack of empathy for other women. "BB" carries her babies around as if that proves something great and positive about her, but don't be fooled: she's just as hostile to basic rights as those nasty protesters at the Spokane Planned Parenthood.

8. Since the SOTU speech is still embargoed, and she appears to be holding the draft of her

response...In that context, I appreciate the detail of your response.....and
WELCOME to DU....

I wonder if some where on the Internets the fact of her writing her response to an embargoed speech is being discussed?
