Penetrating Politics in Virginia

Penetrating Politics in Virginia

Virginia Republicans want to keep government out of your business — except if you’re a woman. Republicans in the Virginia Senate voted to force pregnant women to have ultrasound probes stuck up their ladybusiness before they can terminate pregnancies.

Virginia Republicans are against healthcare mandates — except if you’re a woman. Women would be forced to pay for their own forced transvaginal ultrasound probes, too.

For some reason, Virginia Republicans were surprised when their plans were met with outrage, ridicule, and the withheld affection of their own wives. Governor Bob McDonnell has since withdrawn his support for the forced, intrusive physical violations. It’s a shame, in a way, now that they’ve made up all those Bob McDonnell commemorative transvaginal probes.
