Things That Make You Go WTF

I have decided to start a new series that will occur sporadically on my site. The inaugural Things That Make You Go WTF is from the RNC.

GOP Chairman Ends Abortion Insurance for Employees

WASHINGTON -- A chagrined GOP Chairman Michael Steele has told Republican National Committee staff to immediately stop providing RNC employees with insurance for elective abortions -- an option that Republicans strongly oppose as Democrats try to pass a health care overhaul bill.

"Money from our loyal donors should not be used for this purpose," Steele said in a statement late Thursday after learning of the abortion coverage from a news report. "I don't know why this policy existed in the past, but it will not exist under my administration. Consider this issue settled."

There's not much more to add to this. What in God's name is the RNC doing providing abortion coverage? Anybody still wonder why they are having trouble with conservatives?

Funnier still is the moron they picked for the ny race. When our own party picks a democrat, what the f8ck. They leave the conservative, hanging balls out. Then they wonder why people flee to ron paul. Cheese on crackers people. Good post.

The GOP has been offering abortion insurance to RNC employees?

I'm at a loss for words.

Chuck said...

Cmoursier, thanks for stopping by. We had some "Republicans" supporting the GOP candidate in NY, including Newt, the next RINO to run for President

AOW, stunning

WTF indeed, Chuck. Kinda relates to my previous post about Republicans being irrevelant.

Anyway, you won't run out of material for this theme, that's for sure.

BTW, I'll blogroll you so that I don't forget to come here.

Katie said...

WTF, indeed.

Chuck said...

Karen, it will be an easy time finding stuff. Thanks for the blogroll

Katie, agreed

MK said...

Unbelievable! Good on him for scrapping it.

This is the reason many have not given any contributions to the GOP leadership since 2004.
My checkbook will remain closed until the RINOs are driven out of the GOP national leadership.

If I know local Republican conservatives, I will support them.

But no more of voting for the lesser of two evils. I did that and got the big evil-Obama and the little evil too-McCain. Vote for the least of 2 evils and you get them both.

MK, amazing isn't it

LomaAlta, I think we are going to see more conservatives next year
