Elizabeth Warren floats GOP, Fox News conspiracy over Planned Parenthood vote

warren4According to Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat known for stretching her Native-American heritage, the whole Planned Parenthood issue is part of a giant conspiracy cooked up by Republicans and Fox News.

“Let’s be really clear about something,” she said on the floor of the Senate. “The Republicans scheme to defund Planned Parenthood is not some sort of surprise response to a highly edited video.”

Ahem… It’s not just one video, Sen. Warren, it’s four — so far, and we’ve seen the unedited videos as well.  She wasn’t finished:

“This year alone Republican state legislators have passed more than 50 new restrictions on women’s access to legal health care,” she added. “The Republican vote to defund Planned Parenthood is just one more piece of a deliberate, methodical, orchestrated, right-wing attack on women’s rights, and i’m sick and tired of it.”

Got that?  The whole thing was cooked up by evil right-wingers.

“Scheduling this vote during the week of a big Fox News presidential primary debate,” she continued, “isn’t just some clever gimmick.”

Real Clear Politics added:

Which vast right wing conspiracy has she discovered? Did they send people out for three years to get footage of abortion doctors, which they then selectively edited and released, just in time to add an amendment defunding Planned Parenthood to a Senate budget vote, forcing the president to pick between abortion (which he has caved on before) and funding the government, all the same week that Fox News is hosting its first presidential debate?

Who knows?  Maybe they’ll try telling us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t exist or was created by the Koch brothers…
