Quotation for Today:Virginia's Republican Bullies

Continuing the good fight against gynephobes is the theme of the quotation for today.  Republican presidential wannabe  --  Rick Santorum  --  and America's Roman Catholic bishops seem to be the public voices for America's contemporary gynephobes.

“I cannot believe that you would disrespect women and mothers in such a way. This legislation is simply mean-spirited, and it is bullying, bullying women simply because you can.”

Lionell Spruill 

Lionell Spruill is a Democratic Virginia Assembly Delegate. Delegate Spruill's comments were in response to the Republican-controlled Virginia General Assembly's efforts to pass a bill that in Delegate Spruill's words would force "legal rape."

Delegate Spruill's comments were part of Maureen Dowd's column on the religious fanaticism of Republican presidential wannabe, Rick Santorum.
