So I suppose most of you in the US, and possibly some of you across the pond, have heard by now about the appalling Congressional hearing on contraception -- oh sorry, on freedom of religion -- and how the panel was packed with men. One young woman who wanted to testify was told she didn't have the right credentials (National Organization for Women President Terry O’Neill [go Terry!] responded by saying, 'She didn’t have the right credentials? I’m thinking to myself, "Buddy, you and your little panel over there don’t have the right anatomy..."')

This whole cluster-f**k makes me so angry I can hardly talk about it without shouting. Put this on top of GOP front-runner -- Merlin save us -- Rick Santorum's medieval views on women (don't read what one of his biggest donors said unless you've got a firm grip on your temper) and you get a situation that makes me, for one, completely disgusted and more than a little uneasy.

I know, I know: if Santorum gets the nomination, Obama is probably a shoo-in in November. Still, it's hard to tamp down my sense of nausea at the fact that in the 21st century we still have regressive cavemen who hew to the "barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen" view. I really, really thought we were beyond that. *sigh*

Part of me really wants to follow the links. Another part of me knows that it will just make my blood pressure shoot up.
