Yandy Pulls Its 'Sexy' Handmaid's Tale Costume After a Swift Backlash.

I think we can all agree that forcing women into baby-bearing concubinage is wrong. Really wrong. Seriously wrong.

Nobody should have to be a slave to anybody for any reason or purpose. Period.

I think we we might also agree that taking a symbol of awful concubinage (even if purely fictional) and turning it into a Halloween costume like Yandy did can be sexy, cheeky, good fun. And besides, nothing is quite as empowering as taking something oppressive (even if purely fictional) and turning it into a display of liberation.

But the Left can't go with that, because the Left doesn't believe in Liberty.

You will be made to conform, comrade -- especially you saucy ladies.

Chaser:

Brandon Friedman, by the way, is one of DC's more despicable characters, in case you didn't know:

After serving in the United States Army from 2000-2004, he went on to join the Soros-funded anti-Iraq War group "VoteVets."

In 2007, Friedman, then a spokesman for VoteVets, spearheaded one of the left's many efforts to "hush Rush" Limbaugh after the popular conservative radio host used the phrase "phony soldiers" on the air in reference to frauds who impersonate real soldiers (otherwise known as "stolen valor"). VoteVets, Media Matters, and others on the left tried to push the lie that Limbaugh was talking about soldiers who opposed the Iraq War rather than real phony soldiers like Jesse Macbeth, who had been recently in the news and discussed on his show. Their efforts culminated with a House resolution introduced by Democrats condemning  Limbaugh for his remarks.

Friedman went on to serve as the first director of digital media at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and deputy assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development during the Obama administration.

You may remember him as the guy who suggested that Bowe Bergdahl's troopmates were "psychopaths" after they came forward to decry Obama's infamous trade of five Taliban commanders for Bergdahl's release in June of 2014.

He now works for his own PR firm, The McPherson Square Group.

 

Last straw:

That's it. Grassley should schedule a vote this weekend -- or Monday at the latest whether she gets there or not. Republicans seem to have no idea how much they would be appreciated if they just put this farce to an end.

 

Senate Republican again responds perfectly to Dems on Kavanaugh.

Thank you, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).

Did somebody say "Blue Wave"???

This just in from Gallup:

In politics, as of today, do you consider yourself a Republican, a Democrat or an independent?
