Thanks for the laughs, GOP

The satirists are out in force.  Thanks for the laughs, GOP.

In response to Donald Trump's offer of a $5 million dollar donation to a charity in return for the release of the president's college records and passport, Stephen Colbert makes an offer of his own:  "Mr. Trump, I will write you a check for one million dollars from Colbert Super PAC (you know I've got it) to the charity of your choice...if you will let me dip my balls in your mouth."

Giving real news coverage (or even Fox News coverage) to Trump's idiotic and racist demands is like saying his ideas have ANY value in a political discussion.  Colbert shows us the right way to deal with this kind of ridiculous nonsense.  That's right, dip some balls in his mouth to shut him the hell up.

Colbert also has to reset the "Days without a GOP Rape Mention" board after Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock asserted that " is a gift from God.  And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."

I realize there are people who think that "Dick" is absolutely correct.  To you, I say, "Good for you.  Don't have an abortion, then.  And I truly hope that you do find that new life a blessing." Believers must in turn realize that not everyone else believes in the same God (or even in any God at all).  Thus, limiting access to abortion, the morning-after pill, or even birth control, based on your personal religious beliefs, is not appropriate in a country that was based on religious freedom.

And here's another fake news source that makes you think more than the real thing.  John Stewart weighs in on Dick Mourdock's rape comments.  Here is the crux of the issue for me and why, even as I laugh at Stewart's remarks about "Fetus Club," I am also seriously afraid of the GOP vision for America.  Jon Stewart says, "In other words, according to the Republican party platform and the man who wants to be a heartbeat away from the presidency, if a woman wants to have a baby--In vitro fertilization?  She cannot.  Rape?  She has to."  That, my friends, is some scary shit.

Another hilarious clip was about undecided voters.  There is such an incredible difference between the president and his challenger that I can't imagine how anyone who hasn't been asleep for the past several months could possibly still be undecided.  SNL explains here:

Here is Tina Fey, talking about Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin.

Hey, GOP members, look down.  If you have a penis, SHUT UP!  As entertaining as it is to watch everyone make fun of you, it would be much more productive (not reproductive) if you stopped trying to fit government in my uterus and did something about creating jobs.
