True story. So … it should not even remotely surprise you that Sen. Barbara Boxer brought Viagra into a discussion about birth control:

Also, Hobby Lobby may come after your vaccines next:

Let’s go to the videotape:

If ignorance is bliss, Barbara Boxer is on cloud nine. And she’s in good company:

The only thing that’s obvious here is that these doofuses have no idea what they’re talking about.

Evidently not. Moreover, she just doesn’t seem to understand what the Supreme Court case is actually about.

Hobby Lobby is suing for the right to offer health care plans that do not cover contraception that could potentially prove lethal to a developing embryo. In fact, Hobby Lobby currently covers all but four of the FDA-approved forms of contraception:

Too bad Boxer and the Party of Science don’t have time to do actual research before they open their mouths.

It isn’t.

We couldn’t’ve said it better ourselves.

    Barbara Boxer; proof that being full of hate and lies makes you wrinkled and ugly.

      “…[A]nd [s]he carries the reminders of every glove that laid her down, or cut her, till [s]he cried out, in [her] anger and [her] shame, ‘I am leaving, I am leaving!’, but the [Boxer] still remains…”

      • drw

        That’s an awfully good song to be quoting relative to this dimwit. The name notwithstanding, you’re severely diminishing it’s purity of essence. Merely the suggestion of babbles in conjunction opens the possibility of carry-over the next time it’s played.
        Please Sir, I beseech thee, have care with your words for you understand not what power you wield.

      Barbara Boxer: proof there are people out there stupid enough to believe what she’s saying. Here is what should scare all of us: they keep voting for idiot libs like her.

    I wonder if she wears Boxer shorts ? Nah – she dose not have the BALLS for it…oh wait…Lies like she does…

  • waterytart

    Well, since ALL things sexual are the religion of the left, I guess it stands to reason why they’re having such a difficult time with this. Friggin’ dolts.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    Viagra repairs a malfunction in the reproductive process and birth control creates a malfunction in the reproductive process.

    • DwellsInFire

      Yes, while Viagra and birth control do two different things, nobody I’ve ever heard about uses Viagra for procreation. They use it for recreation which is the same reason women use birth control. There is no reason tax payers should be paying for anybody’s pornographic and perverted recreational activities no matter who they are. I’m no fornicator, but I’m expected to pay for other people’s fornication? Hell no. They can pay for that themselves.

      • April Pummill

        Guess what? Viagra IS covered. And guess what else? Not all birth control is for recreation. If you were bleeding 14 out of 28 days of your cycle you’d probably want to get an IUD or be put on a pill, too. You know nothing. Grow a damned vagina then we’ll talk. I’m not going to even touch the “sex is perverted” part. I guess you also don’t know how many married couples use contraception. Also you should totally have the right to control others’ lives based on your beliefs. That’s what life is all about. *eye roll*

  • disqus_eric

    The ignorance is strong today…

    • H50 ✓RAT

      Its ramping up for Nov. It will be the new norm.

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    Yes, they get to stand on grounds of conscientious objection to the form of birth control they pay for. If some “Progressive” judge decides that any being under two years old is not fully a human and birth control can be exercised up to that age should we all just accept it? This is about the taking of life on one side and sex on the other side. Not apples and oranges but apples and bicycles.

  • Ghee!

    I’m literally embarassed for them. They so willingly beclown themselves that I sometimes feel bad for them.

    I immediately get over it as well.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      I agree with you, but I skip step one.

      • Ghee!

        They are such followers. Boxer tweets an inane thought and they latch onto it as if the mothership sent out a thoughtbeam and they have to regurgitate it without the least hesitation, equivocation or mental reservation.

        • drw

          I have a theory. Since they’ve overloaded the koolaide, they’ve started mixing the bull in with the unicorn farts before “refreshing” the bubbles of the faithful. I mean it’s unicorn but it’s still farts, right? It’s reasonable to believe there may be a slight carry-over of odor, ya know?

        • H50 ✓RAT

          Perfect.

  • Wart

    So now the ignorant hate filled left wing loons compare Viagra with murder… Just how dumb are they?

  • TomJB

    Love the guy who claims Viagra has one purpose. Interesting since that one purpose he is thinking about is a side effect for the problem the drug was designed to treat…

  • ceemack

    Unlike the limited number of “birth control” medications to which Hobby Lobby objects, Viagra is not designed to terminate a human life.

    The worst it could do is poke somebody’s eye out.

  • ceemack

    As a Californian, let me once again apologize for the embarassing antics of the brain-dead troll known as “Barbara Boxer”. Our state should never have put her on the national stage.

    Mind you, I only know a couple of people who have ever voted for her. But then I don’t hang out on the West Side or in the Tenderloin…

  • Doc Farmer ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Okay, I don’t need to see or hear the phrases “slippery slope” or “oral arguments” when a photo of Barbara Boxer is on the screen. Got it, world?

  • LivingRedInABlueState

    Twitchy’s coverage of these liberal Senators prove that they’re always trying to compensate with verbal blather what they severely lack in mental acuity. Unfortunately, their constituents seem to come from the same demographics.

    Bab’s Boxer: but, but, but, moral equivalency, moral equivalency, my constituent’s fall for it all the time, that’s how I keep getting reelected.

  • USNbubblehead

    She would appreciate it if you called her ‘Senator,’ she worked soooo hard for that title!

    • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

      I’ll call her “Senator” when she behaves like one.

      • USNbubblehead

        Watch the video. Its priceless.

        • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

          Yeah, I remember that incident. Even if “Senator” is the proper term of address, she still acted like she was called a nasty name.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            The fact that she didn’t understand that in military protocol addressing a female superior as Ma’am is equally as respectful as addressing them by rank/title speaks volumes.
            Also, dressing him down publicly, in that tone of voice was just unprofessional and bossy.

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    Not that I want it to get to this point, but I hope that if the Supreme Court actually does rule in favor of these lunatics, the Green family simply declares that they’re shutting down Hobby Lobby, and the 18,000 or so employees who will lose their jobs can thank the government for that.

    • FirstBoot

      I think they mentioned doing just that because the penalty for non-compliance was too exorbitant. I hope Hobby Lobby wins, but the Supreme Court has no credibility since the Obamatax ruling. Obama thugs got to Roberts and I’m sure the same threats are still in place.

  • FirstBoot

    It should be a crime to be that stupid. Good luck to Hobby Lobby. They’re going to need it with turncoat Roberts on the case.

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Barb’s just worried that her Botox will no longer be covered, and her constituents will discover that her true age is 4,974.

    Liberals never seem to get the difference between forcing someone else to pay for what you want for free and having to pay for it yourself.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    One repairs a malfunction the other creates a malfunction.

  • Heather Atkinson

    To a Regressive, ‘access’ doesn’t mean what it means. The Newspeak definition of ‘access’ is ‘to be paid for by someone else’. By not giving someone what they want, when they want it, at no charge to them, you are ‘denying access’. By this logic, every steakhouse in the city is ‘denying me access’ to a bone-in rib eye!!

    • OfficialPro

      probably because they think HObby Lobby pays slave wages well below minimum wage and thus the employees “can’t afford” their birth control, thus MUST have it subsidized!

      • Heather Atkinson

        I smell a lot of ‘IF’ coming off that supposition.

  • Cliff Williams

    Hmm, I wonder how many plans cover Viagra to begin with?

    Viagra is a tier III drug. Thus, not covered by most plans.

      Dont muddy the waters with facts, logic, or common sense. You already know that doesn’t work well for liberals, and they can’t continue to manufacture outrage when you give them the facts. :)

    This maybe just me and correct me if I am wrong by all means but isn’t viagra the exact opposite of birth control???

    “Because genitals!” they hollered.

  • H50 ✓RAT

    Not knowing what the heck shes talking about has never stopped BB from blathering stupid things. She doesn’t care if she makes a moron of herself to the nation, because the progs in Cali will parrot any idiotic thing she say and re-elect her every time.
    Here is my theory on BBs obsession with riding the world of Viagra; After she went thru menopause, she thought she was rid of the cumbersome ‘wifely duty’ then her husband discovered that Viagra was covered by his insurance.
    Schwinggggg! Oh Barbara dear…..here kitty, kitty……

    • CO2 Producer

      I just threw up out my mouth a lot.

            Id think so too, but I have a different focus. 😉

  • USMC

    I am sick of this viagra argument. There is no govt mandate requiring insurance companies or employers to cover Viagra. If you dont want a plan that covers viagra then you dont have to get it.

      I recall when my doctor told me that as a man I could take Viagra to abort my fetus… then the broccoli stared dancing and the dream got REALLY weird.

    Wouldn’t condoms be the male version of birth control? What insurance plan pays for condoms? Bet all healthcare plans pay for the tying of ovarian tubes.

  • Perilous

  • April Pummill

    Just so you know, Plan B is NOT an abortion pill. Idiots. There is no reason that Hobby Lobby should be able to decide what people do in their private lives. Everyone pays insurance premiums for care. They have no right to object or condone the uses of the insurance, especially for private matters. Do you people even KNOW that not 100% of fertilized embryos implant naturally? Not only that, but there are medical reasons that a person can’t have more children and would opt for an IUD, and the second you force someone to prove birth control is “medically necessary,” (as if preventing pregnancy alone is not a medical reason) you are invading that person’s privacy. The comparison between Viagra and birth control is: the religious idiots think both are used to have sex. So, erroneous information-spreading about birth control’s connection to abortion aside, it is hypocritical to provide men with purely sex-having (usually past sexual prime) pills but to limit birth control. You don’t have religious freedom to take away someone else’s freedom of healthcare no matter how you spin it. Get over it.
