Republicans hate women, but that’s not news. Am I pissed about pulling funding from Planned Parenthood? Of course. Am I pissed at the racist anti-abortion ad in SoHo? Damn straight. Am I pissed about pulling funding for the arts? Duh. But we can look past all that as a nation. (And isn’t the President’s right to veto in place for a reason?) But there’s one story that hits way below the belt. The headline: “Crowd Laughs When Congressman is Asked: ‘Who’s Going to Shoot Obama?’” This is humor? This is not humor. This is hate. This is not misguided religion or family values. This is hate. Hate has no place in the United States.
