My blog of Monday, January 31, 2011 entitled “The Language of Rape” attempted to expose the effort of 175 co-signers in Congress to introduce a bill that would limit a woman’s right to medical coverage for an abortion to cases of “forcible” rape — as opposed to plain old vanilla rape.  Jon Stewart took up the legislation recently on his comedy newscast and I’ve provided the clip here for those who missed it (courtesy The Daily Show).

I bow to the master. 

Happily the bill has been withdrawn from consideration. Apparently someone had the foresight to give these Congressmen a dictionary so they could read the definition of the word.
