Heritage Foundation: “Rape is Good”
If you visit liberal/”alternative” news sites or blogs, you probably know about the Halliburton/KBR employee who was gang raped in Iraq by some of her coworkers. (You didn’t find out about it from the mainstream “media” since they’ve been too busy with the Balloon Boy and the usual celebutante drivel.)
This rape victim’s employment contract had a clause which prohibited her from taking any legal action against her employer in the event she was raped. Senator Al Franken proposed an amendment that would prohibit the Pentagon from doing business with any company that requires female employees to sign one of these “I promise not to squeal or sue my employer if I get raped by my coworkers” agreements.
Thirty (30) senators voted AGAINST this amendment. Yes of course they were all Republicans. You had to ask?
Here is a list of the Thirty Pieces of Shit — those pathetic pitiful little dickwads who think rape in the defense of Halliburton is no vice. (Sorry, Barry G.)
And the ultra-rightwing Heritage Foundation thinks Al Franken’s amendment is just the usual liberal whining; just a payoff to trial lawyers and those unscrupulous employees who file frivolous lawsuits against their employers.
In a related story, the Republican leadership is trying to attract some normal people — i.e. people who walk upright, breathe through their noses and have IQs above freezing — into the GOP. But they aren’t sure how to accomplish this, what with all the bookburning knuckledragging sickfucks who dominate the party (see above).
