It's a Fine Line Between Hypocrisy and Irony

Republicans in the Virginia General Assembly have passed a measure requiring abortion clinics to register as hospitals. The measure, once it takes effect, will force many clinics across the state to close.

For a political party that supposedly preaches about getting government off people's backs and out of their lives, Republicans seem to have absolutely no problem with telling women what they can and can't do with their bodies.

Likewise with the party's opposition to same sex marriage: For a group that constantly preaches about abolishing government regulations, they seem to have no problem defining exactly what constitutes a marriage.
