Bob Marshall's Love Canal Resurfaces
I was just saying earlier today how Marshall had ignored my part of the state. He did make it to Roanoke. He did receive press time. See the TV spot here. From reading this article it sounds like Bob made one heck of an impression. He gets testy with the reporter. Why? Because Jay Warren grilled him on his past statements and "legislating sex." So it begins:
“A woman’s arm is constructed at a certain angle so that she can cradle a baby. This is the way we’re created.”~Bob Marshall
And barefoot in the kitchen also?
WARREN: “What does that mean, a man should not cradle a baby?”
MARSHALL: “No, but have you ever seen any female quarterbacks? To get down to biology a woman’s arm is constructed at a different angle than a man’s.”
Are you kidding me? The article continues painfully:
For instance, in that same Washington Post article on Nov. 4, 2006, Marshall is quoted proudly saying he is Virginia’s “chief homophobe.”.............
And then there’s Marshall’s rant on the House floor about the Morning After Pill. It’s posted on YouTube.
Marshall said, “We have no business passing this garbage out and making these co-eds chemical Love Canals for these frat house playboys in Virginia.”
When asked about it, Marshall interjects “is this another sex topic?”
WARREN: “Well, if it is unfair for us to ask sex questions.”
MARSHALL: “It’s not unfair.”
WARREN: “Why are you legislating sex?”
Love Canal resurfaces. Oh my. Health care issues you ask?
When asked if there are any real solutions to fix our health care system, Marshall said, “Part of it is the behaviors that Americans are engaging in that are resulting in more necessary trips to the doctor.”
What are those behaviors? His campaign website lists only AIDS and STD’s. We’re back to sex.
WARREN: “Why point out std’s and not also point out smoking, bad eating, that a lot of people would say are causing a lot more expense to our health care system than are STD’s?”
MARSHALL “Whether they are or are not, I don’t know.”
Nice job. I have listened to the left say Jim Gilmore cant win. I've read the bloggers for Marshall say Jim cant win. That is B/S. Gilmore the tax cutter against Warner the tax raiser. Bob Marshall - “chief homophobe.”.....And they think Marshall can win statewide? Heh.
