Classy: Rep. Blumenauer tweets abortion joke about Boehner's 'Plan B' bill

After Speaker John Boehner failed to rally enough support for his “Plan B” bill, many people tweeted tasteless abortion puns about the fiscal cliff measure that shares its nickname with a brand of emergency contraception. But only one of them was a sitting congressman.

But it’s House Republicans who aren’t serious about the fiscal cliff?

Several members of the lapdog media retweeted Oregon Rep. Blumenauer. But nearly 12 hours later, it appears that none of them considered a Democratic congressman cracking an abortion joke newsworthy enough to write about.

One ThinkProgress editor was delighted at Blumenauer’s “sassy” quip.

Abortion punchlines: Sassy.

    Phony outrage! Go read The Joy Of Hate by Greg Gutfeld

      You should lobby the president for an appointment as
      Arbiter of What Is and What Is Not Offensive Czar.

        Phony outrage to my comment pointing out this post being phony outrage.

        Pretending to be mad!

        • TocksNedlog

          Sure, if a conservative made a joke about how a low IQ prisoner that was executed was ‘too stupid to get himself a better lawyer’ you’d be making the same “phony outrage” accusation — right?

      Phony outrage is similar to mindless acceptance.

      Go to Obama’s website and send him some more money.

        I wonder why he’s still begging for money. Maybe that’s his plan to pay down the debt. I think it’s a great idea. What say you lefties? Cough it up! Do your patriotic duty.

      Leftwingwackos are bloodthirsty. Ripping children apart limb from limb is their preferred way of having children die, not by gun violence.

    • MaryUKtheScot

      Remember the faux left wingnut outrage at the guy who said the Clintons were “pimping out” their daughter!! MIND the 27 year old!!!! #HYPOCRITS

      Sure. Nobody really gets upset about abortion jokes.

    • Jillane Kent

      Who is outraged? Most of us seem to accept that many liberals adore abortion and eschew serious conversations about all things fiduciary.

    Nothing funnier than references to dead babies

    • wwbdinct

      Let me expand on your comment. Nothing funnier than references to dead babies one week after Newtown. This is the scum that runs this country.

    Proof: liberals love abortion.

    In this holy Advent season, the leftist’s thoughts turn to death.

    This is what Pope John Paul II meant by the culture of death. The destruction of human life has a disturbingly central place in this secular culture. Death panels, self-degradation, abortion.

    So sad.

    But Advent shows us that there is a different way, truth, and life!

    As a conservative, I tweeted EVERYONE about the correlation two days ago. I think it is funny and to name a plan after an abortiaficient, was just effing stupid……those peeps are late to that party….even Brit Hume responded to the tweet I sent him about it.

    Just think, I’d bet the liberals have aborted (murdered) at least 100 times the amount of babies as the New Town shooter, just since last Friday!

    Gee, now I feel all bad ‘n stuff for wondering what would be different if Henry Reid’s mom had had access to Plan B in 1939. Not that bad, though.
