Coburn, DeMint Block National Women’s History Museum Because ‘Quilters’ And ‘Cowgirl’ Museums Already Exist

nosignThis week, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) made the “unilateral decision to end legislative activity in the Senate.” In co-opting complete control of Senate business, DeMint has picked up the mantle of veteran obstructionist Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) in blocking any bill that does not meet his personal “parameters.” Now, both Coburn and DeMint have joined forces to target a bill celebrating women’s history. Read the rest at Think Progress.

People have asked me whether we really need something like WLoAD. Yes. Yes, we do. While idiots like this rule this country (and many others), yes, we do.


  1. With all the stupid and useless things that get a subsidy and something like this gets blocked because they might ask for a subsidy? Because they might have a display concerning issues that have been vital to women's rights... What the fuck. I am disgusted and ultimately saddened. I really thought we'd gotten farther.

    Those asscookies have probably been reading Sugar Babe.

  2. LOL -- Sugarbabe! I am just so flabbergasted that this is still possible, that there are these obstructionist old men around throwing their clodhoppers around.
