The Right Continues To Play To Stereotype

The Republicans are on a roll.

They continue to vilify Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, displaying not just their mean-spiritedness, but their remarkable misunderstanding of how birth control works and how health care operates.

They continue to blame and smear Trayvon Martin, showing their cold-heartedness while avoiding serious debate about gun control, misguided stand-your-ground laws and racism.

They tout the new budget unveiled by Congressman Paul Ryan which will not only increase the deficit, cut taxes for the wealthy, gut the social safety net, and end Medicare as we know it but, as E.J. Dionne notes, would "produce the largest redistribution of income from the bottom to the top in modern U.S. history and likely increase poverty and inequality more than any other budget in recent time."

I hate to perpetuate a stereotype but this sure seems ignorant, misogynistic, racist and greedy to me.
