Will DUers now refer to family values Republicans as "wife beaters"?
Instead of "closet cases"?
MN: Republican family values hypocrite Mark Olson - no shame by: Pam Spaulding Wed Jul 23, 2008 at 10:00:00 AM EDT
Look at the career aspirations of convicted GOP wife-beater Rep. Mark Olson -- he has quit the Minnesota House to run for state senator. Olson called his conviction for domestic assault (for shoving his wife to the ground several times) a "personal failure." He begged his House colleagues for forgiveness; no word on whether he apologized to his family.
Repukes are SO "anti-gay", that when one of their number is revealed to be gay, they DESERVE to have all their homophobic, anti-gay slurs hurled back at them.
As far as wife-beaters go, it's pretty obvious that Repukes think that's the way things should be. It's like taunting a liberal by calling him "anti-conservative". What's funny about something that's common knowledge, right?
The funny part is when you discover somebody doing something they've been railing against for years. Like, if Dennis Kucinich got busted for illegally carrying a concealed weapon.
Up on the dais, several men seated behind Hager nodded solemnly in agreement. But out in the audience, Linda Carruth Davis--co-author with Hager of Stress and the Woman's Body, and, more saliently, his former wife of thirty-two years--was enraged. "It was the most disgusting thing I've ever heard," she recalled months later, through clenched teeth.

Rep. Olson's wife says she feared for her life By Jim Adams, Star Tribune
Heidi Olson, 50, was the first witness to testify in the trial of Rep. Mark Olson, a Republican from Big Lake, after opening arguments Wednesday in Sherburne County District Court in Elk River. Mark Olson faces two misdemeanor domestic assault counts, which allege he pushed his wife down three times behind their Big Lake home on Nov. 12, causing her harm and fear.
