Maddow Responds To Cal Thomas: I’m Glad You Were Born. Otherwise, Who’d Give The ‘Fox News Bat Signal’?
Regular readers will recall that, yesterday, conservative commentator Cal Thomas quipped to his fellow CPAC panelists that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow (who has said that the Republican party is “waging war” on contraception) is “the best argument in favor of her parents using contraception.”
Last night, Maddow responded.
“Mr. Fox News Person speaking there,” she said, “I am sorry that you feel that way about me and that you wish I had never been born. Personally, I’m glad that you were born. Otherwise how would Republicans get the special Fox News bat signal that it’s time to be outraged now about what used to be Republicans’ own policy idea?”
Earlier on in her show, Maddow had brought up the fact that the Obama administration’s rules regarding a birth control mandate are “precisely what had been proposed by Olympia Snow and other Republicans in 2001, but yet they are being denounced as some sort of liberal abomination.”
