The Monday Polotics Thread Celebrates President’s Day

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Sunday said he isn’t going to take “lectures on family values” from conservative media personality Rush Limbaugh, who recently made comments about the former South Bend, Ind., mayor’s sexuality.

“I love my husband. I’m faithful to my husband. Onstage we usually just go for a hug,” Buttigieg said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I love him very much. I’m not going to take lectures on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh,” he added.


Mic drop, Buttigieg.  Mic drop.

An Alabama lawmaker has authored a bill that would require each man to undergo a vasectomy at age 50 or “after the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first.”

Under Rep. Rolanda Hollis’ proposal, men also would have to pay for the procedure themselves.

In a statement, Hollis explained her reasoning for the bill — to shed light on the abortion ban introduced in the state.


“Many have seen HB-238 as an outrageous overstep; yet, year after year the majority party continues to introduce new legislation that tries to dictate a woman’s body and her reproductive rights. We should view this as the same outrageous overstep in authority,” she said.


I like this woman’s moxie.
