It’s the start of another week, and yes, the political news has been heating up.
Let’s see. Rick Santorum is out of the race … sort of …
and is still talking about morality
and what he saw as the consequences
which, real world data says hasn’t happened. The Republicans seem to feel that “abstinence education” is an effective strategy, never mind that the states that have that also have the highest rates of teen pregnancy. Turns out that teens weren’t listening.
But, in general, the reaction to Santorum’s leaving the race was met with relief by many Republicans.
Moving on, the Republicans have released their new “proposed” budget, which is mostly the same as the one that got shot down badly the last time they proposed it. Still, all the Republicans are out there hyping it.
and just … waving aside … all those independent reports that it would increase the deficit they claim to want to “fix.” While I’m sure it feeds into whatever worldview they have – reality aside – it’s getting really, really irritating.
and I’m pretty sure they won’t like me angry.
