Marsha Blackburn:  Not Just a Crazy Person But a Terrible Crazy Person

Marsha Blackburn has been giving off the high quality crazy for some time now, minimizing the need for federal emergency assistance with yawnstorms like Katrina; refusing to admit that Romneycare *existed*; arguing against gun control because hammers and hatchets are out there too (!); consorting with Xtianist power seekers and homophobes; birthering here; truthering there; &c &c and all the while we’re having to look at this crazy person on the teevees all the time!

So what has she done now that tops even telling Katrina victims to suck it because PayGO!!??

Saying that she voted against VAWA because it protects women who are not privileged, white, upper middle class Jeebus botherers such as her, that’s what!  Seriously.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Monday openly admitted that she opposed the latest reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) because it included protections for LGBT, Native American, and undocumented victims of domestic violence.

In an appearance on MSNBC, Blackburn pointed out that the latest iteration of the law protects “different groups” and thus dilutes funding for straight, non-Native American women with the proper documentation:

  When you start to make this about other things it becomes an “against violence act” and not a targeted focus act… I didn’t like the way it was expanded to include other different groups. What you need is something that is focused specifically to help the shelters and to help out law enforcement, who is trying to work with the crimes that have been committed against women and helping them to stand up.

I am honestly at a loss for words here.  And silly me, I never knew it was really the Violence Against Straight White Women Act as opposed to the Violence Against WOMEN Act.  All women who are subjected to violence because they had the nerve to be born women and not able to fight back when a physically stronger guy is hitting them and sexually assaulting them. 

I would not wish on Marsha Blackburn what she deserves for taking this position because I am a better person than she is.  But it is tempting to wish it.  Very tempting indeed.

Lesbians and Native American sluts *totally* have it coming, you know.

That which you do unto the least of my sisters ... is OK, ‘cause they aint me or mine!

Can I get a White Power?!

Some other Memorable Marsha Moments:

“If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this, why have we not seen photos, why has he not referenced it?”

Blackburn insists on being called “congressman” and is also a member of the infamous C-Street “Fellowship,” a Republican mostly-boys club.

- Being named one of the 24 most corrupt members of Congress by CREW in 2008 for her repeated failure to file accurate campaign-finance reports.

- Being one of the co-sponsors of the “Birther Bill” aimed at questioning Obama’s eligibility to be President.

- Opposing EPA efforts to regulate greenhouse gasses on the basis of taxing “cow farts.”

Opposing gun control because “hammers and hatchets” kill people too.

- Saying we shouldn’t “cry emergency every time we ‘have a Katrina.”

Man, you know it’s always bubbling in the background, but it still doesn’t happen often that an arch-conservative will ovaries-out say that federal laws and spending are okay, as long as they aren’t in defense of or spent on Those People.

Hey, Rep. Blackburn: the white hood under your veil is showing.

When you start to make this about other things it becomes an “against violence act” and not a targeted focus act… I didn’t like the way it was expanded to include other different groups. What you need is something that is focused specifically to help the shelters and to help out law enforcement, who is trying to work with the crimes that have been committed against women and helping them to stand up.

I have read this statement a few times and apparently my wingnut decoder system is down; I can’t even tease out what tricky turn of phrase she is trying to hide behind.  Maybe the white sheet she’s wearing is all the cover she thinks she needs.

I would not wish on Marsha Blackburn what she deserves for taking this position because I am a better person than she is.  But it is tempting to wish it.  Very tempting indeed.
Hey I’m a better woman than Marsha Blackburn and I’m a dude.

I would not wish on Marsha Blackburn what she deserves for taking this position because I am a better person than she is.  But it is tempting to wish it.

That’s okay.  I’m a better person, too, but I’ll wish it on her for both of us.

Just somebody tell me: Is she a backward idiot because she’s from the South, or is she a backward idiot who just happens to be from the South?  I’ll believe either explanation.

It’s an “egg or chicken” question Mr. W.
