Candy's dictionary

Candy (of Smart Bitches) has put together a very important dictionary definition for billnapoli. Click, and you shall learn about the inspiration for her sudden leap into morphological territory. I personally plan on re-reading this definition about fifty times a day.

Digby has more on this napoli business, but do be sure to read the Smart Bitch defintion too. Read it early, and read it often.

EDITED TO ADD: Molly Ivins has more to say in her usual no-nonsense style. (Thanks to Barbara for the heads-up.)

…I find [Napoli’s abortion stance] so profound I am considering putting Sen. Napoli in charge of all moral, ethical and medical decisions made by women. Certainly lucky for the women of South Dakota that he’s there, and perhaps that’s what we all need — a man to make decisions for us in case we should decide to do something serious just for our own convenience.

Look at some of the incompetent women we have running around in this country — Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright, now there are a couple of girls in need of guidance from the South Dakota legislature. Female doctors, lawyers, airplane pilots, engineers and, for that matter, female members of the South Dakota Legislature — who could ever trust them with an important decision?

In South Dakota, pharmacists can refuse to fill a prescription for contraceptives should it trouble their conscience, and some groups who worked on the anti-abortion bill believe contraception also needs to be outlawed. Good plan. After that, we’ll reconsider women’s property rights, civil right and voting rights.

For years, the women’s movement has been going around asking, “Who decides?” as though that were the issue. Well, here’s the answer. Bill Napoli decides, and if you’re not happy with that arrangement, well, you’d better be prepared to do something about it.

how do you define napoli?

  1. The very smart Molly Ivins has just written a column in which she considers putting Senator Napoli in charge of all moral, ethical and medical decisions made by women, since women clearly are incompetent to make such important decisions for themselves. She concludes: “For years, the women’s movement has been going around asking, ‘Who decides?’ as though that were the issue. Well, here’s the answer. Bill Napoli decides, and if you’re not happy with that arrangement, well, you’d better be prepared to do something about it.”

    I think she’s right.

  2. IF the women of S.D. can’t have birth control the men of S.D. shouldn’t have SEX.

  3. I’m not even American but this post has got me extremely offended. I know it sounds self centered (and I really do care about all women around the globe and their rights)but right now I’m really thankful to be a Canadian. Having said that, its scary how our hard earned rights can be so easily and carelessly taken away from us by men!

  4. Amen, Carolyn! If men were the ones getting pregnant as a consequence of having sex, we’d have a whooooole ‘nother standpoint, I’d wager. See, I could qualify under the law if I were raped, being a virgin and all, but I’m not “religious,” at least not in a way Sen. Napoleon… excuse me, Napoli, would agree with. Darn.

  5. This is so ridiculous. This just further propogates that women who aren’t virgins and are raped are to be blamed. How can he say that only virgins fit this catagory of being adversely affected by carrying the child full term. Heaven for bid if she isn’t religious as well!!

  6. And heaven forbid she isn’t Christian, because you just know that by “religious” he means “Christian.”

  7. Well I’m not a virgin and I’m not religious but I sure as hell would be affected by carrying a rapists child to full term. Firstly my kids sure wouldn’t like it, Mommy why dosen’t Billy look like us? My husband wouldn’t like it, would he be expected to raise another guys child? Lastly I wouldn’t like, see I choose to have children, I choose the guy and the time and how many to have. I hope nothing bad happens to Napoli’s women, he might have to drive them to Wyoming to get an abortion, just like a bunch of other people are going to have to do.

  8. So is the Idiot suggesting that we force the rapists to marry their virgin victims so the child can have a two parent family. GREAT idea!
