Rick Santorum Is A Dummy

He reiterates that his concern is the protective instinct of males toward female comrades. He acknowledges that women are presently in combat positions in the Air Force and Navy. “But I don’t think you see the same problems [that servicemen] would find on the front line.” He says, “It’s not a matter of putting women in dangerous roles.” He tells me, for example, that women are fully capable of “flying small planes.”

HAHAHAHAHAHA. “If you absolutely have to, I guess that I am okay with you operating a plane. But by God, JUST A SMALL ONE.

The YWCA weighs in on the importance of the Violence Against Women Act. There are three reasons some Republicans are trying to block the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act: Gays, immigrants, and Native Americans.
