    This is a classic case of misrepresentation of the facts, apparently. It seems two Representatives were banned from speaking on the subject. I'm not aware of the other Rep's statements, and can only speak to what I heard this woman state.

    She is twisting this situation to make herself appear to be the victim, when in fact she was rude, disrespectful and sophomoric. To accuse the Speaker of the House of being interested in her female parts was way out of line. It's not that she said the word 'vagina' it's that she inferred the Speaker of the House was interested in her's. That's uncalled for, and disrespectful and she deserves to have been censored on the issue if she can't conduct herself any better than that when trying to make her point.

    The other claim she tried to make is that it was because she was Jewish. Both statements are out and out lies.

    OK, I found out why Barb Byrum was also banned. It was because she was trying to pull the 'what's fair for the goose is fair for the gander' thing, which is fine if we're comparing equal situations. Byrum, a democratic Rep. was also against the bill which would have restrictions on abortions. She wanted an amendment to the bill to apply the same restrictions for vasectomies. Ridiculous! The point of the bill was protecting...

The point of the bill was protecting a fetus - a fertilized egg. It had nothing to do with sterilization surgeries, but she wanted to be certain to get back at the male population. Nifty. Doesn't matter if it's fair or equitable, just so long as the guys feel some pain as a result. Hmmm. Wonder if she was only elected to represent the females in her district?

    So there you have it. These two were shut down for 1) being rude, disrespectful and throwing a backhanded accusation at the Leader of the House and 2) demanding an inappropriate and ridiculous amendment just to get back at the men.

    As an old republican, I am very disappointed in todays republican men. The pettiness of their action is so childish it makes me want to take each and everyone of them into the wood-shed and remind them of what their legislative duty is. The "do nothing" legislators really need to be removed. Rescinding all pensions, retirement plans, insurance benefits in order to save costs to the tax payer. It's pathetic. But that's what they've pushed the average republican into promoting. The word "vagina" is a biological part. The word "bitch" is a reference to a female canine. Give me a break. That's why nothing is getting done. I blame my own children. Time to discipline them.

    The people who voted "unfair" either didn't check out the story or think it's OK to accuse the 'Speaker of the House' of being interested in her vagina......that is why she was banned from speaking.

    It should be unfair!! It seems the war on women, persist from the right wing. This was the silliest attack of the war against women yet. Really, women aren't allowed to use a medical term for a female organ?? Now we all know that these right wingers changed the reason for the punishment, because they knew this was going to come back and bite them on the ass. Too late!!!!!

    As disgusting as that badge you tote. Do you like the idea your "conservative" Palin socialized oil profits in Alaska and like a true communist distributed them to the population. I'm not lib or confused but you shouldn't spit up, cause it's coming down. On you. You support communism? How dare you insult the republican party's ORIGINAL BELIEF THAT COMMUNIST CHINA IS OUR ARCH ENEMY!

    She used the word "disgusting" and since I can't stand COMMUNIST (I think Communist are disgusting) I had to point out that my last choice for the presidency included a COMMUNIST in Alaska who took from the oil companies to "free fund" the Alaskan residents. You know, money for nothing. You're basic communist activity. Personally, the word "vagina" doesn't offend the educated.

    Palin did nothing compared to the Republican Hickle he gave back money to Exxon after they destroyed thousands of lives and lively hoods. Unless you lived in Alaska lived through the hardships you know nothing about it. The oil companies would not have anyone working the platforms or oil stations without families being maintained. The originator of the oil dividend was governor Jay Hammond called Alaska Permanent Fund.

    Palin bragged about it. I do not like COMMUNIST. What did she really mean when she said she could "see Russia from her porch"? She wanted Russia? She invites COMMUNISM? She is so sleazy and sneaky she, personally, stopped me from wanting her in the White House. Although I have a great deal of disdain for McCain, since he's so wrapped up in the mafia through his father in law. And what he did to his wife. And how he crashed all those planes. And how he snitched at the Hanoi Hilton. Don't lose focus. You either are for America, or you like the COMMUNIST WAY OF LIFE. If you participated in it, then it doesn't matter what I don't know about how bad it was in Alaska. If it was that bad you should have left Alaska out of principle alone. If you didn't you sold out! Do you support all the borrowing we republicans do from the COMMUNIST CHINESE? Our capitalism is making COMMUNISM rich. That's just disgusting. COMMUNIST CHINA IS OUR ARCH ENEMY. Don't you get it?

    I do get it and by the way being a "communist" is exactly how mankind will live for 1000 years read your bible.And all those who were of the faith were one in heart and soul: and not one of them said that any of the things which he had was his property only; but they had all things in common.

    And with great power the Apostles gave witness of the coming back of the Lord Jesus from the dead; and grace was on them all. And no one among them was in need; for everyone who had land or houses, exchanging them for money, took the price of them, And put it at the feet of the Apostles for distribution to everyone as he had need.

    Ok, so you're a communist. And Palins a communist. You admit it. So, go to China. It's communist. And people like Palin are making the COMMUNIST CHINESE rich from free American money. Go there and be happy. I'm Jewish and I'm not a communist( but I love Jesus). What in the world has all of this got to do with the woman who was blacklisted for saying "vagina"?
