    No, it doesn't, and satire is often the best way of responding to a political idea. See also, sarcasm and irony.

    I even use it myself now and again, even if I'm not as good as the masters: Colbert and Stewart.

    This does nothing to help pro life. This law is primarily a jab at anti BC laws, not the hearbeat bill IMO of course.

Easy I suppose when all you are playing to is ideology and emotion and not thinking reasoned rational people.
    You are equating contraceptives used to NOT get pregnant and slaughtering an unborn child with a medical condition that causes some individuals to not be able to achieve an erection. Should your vagina ever give out and be nothing more than a 'hole' there might be a medical need to fix that and then you would have a valid comparison between THAT procedure and ED meds.

    Me...I'm fine with them requiring a doctors prescription for such things...just as Im fine with ensuring insurance pays for required medical needs oral contraceptives for women where indicated (and in case you missed Flukes actually testimony she stated very clearly that Georgetowns insurance DOES cover medical needs oral contraceptives already and always did).
    Your point is only really heard by those who believe BC is abortion

    That's a strange concept - BC is abortion. Seems a very extreme position to take.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Thats why I said 'especially'. I'm not sure...maybe I missed where I said she cant waste the taxpayers time and money to submit childish ideas in a legislative tantrum. Just that...well...since her notion isnt remotely related to what she is protesting and only connects with people already like minded, then she isnt very good at it and probably shouldnt quit her day job.

    While I could be wrong i'm fairly certain that the joke law is a comparison to anti BC laws not the laws like heartbeat or sonogram

    Viagra isn't a form of BC, so this law isn't even related to the BC/abortion issue at all, which is why we Conservatives are just sitting back having a good chuckle over it.

    Oh, and you look great in your uniform. I, however, don't look like my avatar. Can you tell who that is? Look closely at it.
