Asshole of the Day

Indiana Congressman Mike Pence, the man behind the House amendment to defund Planned Parenthood. The amendment passed 239-184.

I don’t have a transcript and I don’t have the stomach to type one out, but the gist is “Fuck women, poor people, and people of color.”

Meanwhile, the Pentagon’s budget for NASCAR funding remains unscathed. Nice to know where the priorities are.

These are Pence’s office numbers:

  • Washington D.C. Office – 202 225-3021
  • Anderson, IN Office – 765 640-2919
  • Richmond, IN Office – 765 962-2883
  • Muncie, IN Office – 765 747-5566

Take Action:

  • Sign the Planned Parenthood petition.
  • NYC: Attend the Planned Parenthood rally on February 26.
  • Participate in Fair and Feminist’s I Stand with Planned Parenthood blog carnival on Friday, 2/25/11. Sign up here.
  • Contact your senators. NOW has the info.
  • Walk for Choice. This is a list of all the participating cities holding walks/rallies on Saturday, February 26.

If you know of any other action items, leave them in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

  1. I think your translation is spot-on. NASCAR left burn marks on my back as it sped off with all our tax money.
