It was a little over a year ago when Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) proposed legislation that would have barred Planned Parenthood from receiving the federal funds needed to provide essential and lifesaving services to nearly three million women each year. It was a long, hard fought battle — Republicans in Congress even threatened to shut down the government over funding Planned Parenthood. Imagine that — shutting down the federal government to deny women health care. At the end of nearly three months, the legislation was defeated in the Senate on April 14, 2010. But we haven’t forgotten what happened.

SarahLee Adds:

The list includes Todd Akin (MO), Ann Marie Buerkle (NY), Joe Donnelly (IN), Sean Duffy (WI), Mike Fitzpatrick (PA), Steve King (IA), Mike Pence (IN), Denny Rehberg (MT), Marco Rubio (FL), and Allen West (FL). Last year they had their vote, but this November we will have ours.

Speaking to a Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach for the Palm Beach County GOP, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla) fired off a humdinger of a line that within minutes drew recriminations from Democrats on Twitter.

“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table,” West said. “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”

Following cheers, West added, “Yeah I said ‘hell.’”

Moments after the quote was mentioned on Twitter, former Reid spokesman Jim Manley responded via his own Twitter feed: “Me to allen west. You first asshole.”

And they say politics is getting more acrimonious.

We just keep going back to that word: penetrate. Where’s Edward Said when you need him?
