Do You Know Any Woman Who Doesn't Use Birth Control, Dan Rather Asks - Rachel Maddow
NewsBusters ^ | 3/29/12 | Jack Coleman

Posted on 03/29/2012 11:27:46 PM PDT by Jahoohio

At least one comes to mind, Dan. Guess who?

Turns out that oft-flogged figure from liberals of 98 percent of American women using contraception is too low, at least according to former CBS News anchor Dan Rather, who's now working at something or someplace called HDNet. (video clip after page break)

Appearing on last night's Rachel Maddow show, Rather claimed that use of birth control is virtually universal. Whether this conclusion is based on Rather's reporting, first-hand knowledge or some combination thereof was left unstated. Fans of unintentional humor who were watching weren't disappointed --

RATHER: I still can't believe that here, in the second decade of the 21st century, in a presidential campaign, that we're talking about contraception. Do you know any woman, of any race, creed, color or religion, who doesn't use some form of birth control?

Yes, Dan Blather. I do. Not surprised you don’t because you don’t live in the real world...

Yes, One. Maddow. Even Laz wouldn’t hit her, nor would Rosie O’Donnell. On second thought, cancel Rosie.

The last paragraph is by far the best:

My curiosity piqued by Rather's remarks, I asked myself -- how many women do I know who don't use birth control, or do for that matter? The answer -- one -- my wife of nearly 20 years, the mother of our two children. And in the interests of protecting her privacy and not being consigned to sleepless nights on the couch, that is the extent of my disclosure about this.

While I get his overall point, let the speculation begin.

Oh, and by the way, fake progesterone and oral estrogen DO contribute to cancer. So oral birth control is definitely NOT ideal. A few years won’t kill ya but there are safer ways, including abstinence or for the married, charting. taking Care of Your Own Fertility is the bible of natural birth control.

Why is Rather asking another dude for birth control advice?

Dan Rather (now in total well-deserved oblivion) is of course ignorant that birth control medications can have very serious side effects.

I know of a young woman who had a stroke from her birth control pills.

It would seem Dan needs to expand his horizons and get to know some conservative women and not just lesbians. I changed my tag line, but my old one was “geek chick over 50.” Anytime you want to get to know me, Dan....

Another “fake but accurate” moment, eh, Dan?

Dan... I`ll key this in slowly for you...

It`s.. not.. about.. birth.. control. It`s.. a.. religious.. freedom.. issue.

I guess it is because Dan Rather’s groupies make sure that they don’t pass on his genes.

Is Rather that damned old that he doens’t recognize one of them thar lezzian type woman? They don’t need birth control, Dan, you old goat. Why don’t you tie yourself to a street sign in the middle of a hurricane. Oh, wait. He already did that.

It’s not that Dan didn’t realize she was a lesbian, it’s that he didn’t realize she was a woman.

While Rachel may never suffer from ED, she is definitely a carrier.

RATHER: I still can't believe that here, in the second decade of the 21st century, in a presidential campaign, that we're talking about contraception.

Hey Rather - you first class useful idiot. The REASON we're talking about contraception is that it gins up the DEMOCRAT VOTE and OPENS WALLETS.

Dan, do you think the MSM would run with this story for any other reason? Birth control can be bought in more places than food. More places than illegal drugs. More places than show porn on the Internet. It's not an issue. Not a real one.

Ms Fluke wasn't even at a real hearing - it was a PR stunt. One you, Dan - fell for. She wanted to force Catholic groups to go against their beliefs and supply her with birth control.

It would be like forcing Muslim Schools to serve pork. That one you would 'get', right Dan?

These people are so stupid, they don’t realize that this is a reason not to pay for it in an insurance policy. You don’t insure against something that is sure to happen. That is not insurance, that is welfare.

Yep, add my wife to the list (unless you’re counting prophylactics). And she’s now pregnant with our third child and we couldn’t be happier (well, maybe if we won the megamillions tonight).
