"BILL NAPOLI: A real-life

"BILL NAPOLI: A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life."

Acceptable Rape?

This is an interesting concept, "acceptable [criminal behavior]."

Napolizing someone is a crime, but stopping short of full Napolizing means that the person cannot seek medical help.

Drawing the line between a Napolizing and almost-Napolizing will be difficult. I wonder if the Senator will clarify the point at which he thinks the victim "got what she deserved."

I am a South Dakotan

Napoli is a giant, cock-sucking asshole! Craves attention and likes to think of himself as a political maverick. He also wants to go back to the days of shotgun weddings. You know, girl gets pregnant, her daddy takes a shotgun and goes to boy telling him he will marry the girl. Makes me sick.

I belong to a progressive political PAC - yes, there is such a thing in SD. We are raising hell. So are lots of others. A poll taken 2 days ago shows that 67% of people in western SD (west of Missouri River, check a map) are not simply opposed to this misogynistic law, but are outraged! The supporters are shocked, shocked I say. Our jackass federal senator, Johnny-boy Thune can't believe we don't all love it. What sons-of-bitches!

We're circulating petitions to put it to a vote of the public in November. The anti-women creeps will pour a lot of $ into it. It will come from national Right to Life, lunatics like Robertson, Falwell, Dobson, and others.

Most of us South Dakotans are embarassed and ashamed of our legislature. Heads will roll this fall. We don't like being the laughing stock of the nation. I expect big Democratic gains, though there are a couple of "Republican-lite" Dems who are going to get booted too.

I could rant on for some time, but I have other sites to check. Thanks for bringing this forward. If I learn of ways you can help, I'll let you know.

Hi Brenda

Re: your mention of Republican-lite Dems (we have a few of those here in Texas, too), I've recently read that in response to the ban, a couple of SD Republicans have switched parties and will be running as Dems. From your on-the-ground point of view, is this a good development?

I think that the ballot initiative is a great move, demonstrating that the godbag Lege has imposed this monstrosity upon SD against the will of the people. When the law is challenged in court, the religious right's noise machine will immediately use that as another opportunity to scream for the heads of "activist judges." They'll have a lot more trouble painting the votes of "activist citizens" in the same light.

This makes me want to say "Ich bin eine South Dakotan." Wishing you the very best of luck.
