While I firmly and completely believe that Republicans are people who have had a humorectomy, I’m beginning to think they have also had a logicectomy.

Take today’s example: Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte from the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Ole Bob has a new anti-choice thought: Having babies is good for the economy. So, Sister, if you ain’t pumping ‘um out yearly, you are what’s causing the economic slump.

“I would suggest that it is very much the case that those of us in the majority support this legislation because it is the morally right thing to do, but it is also very very true that having a growing population and having new children brought into the world is not harmful to job creation,” Goodlatte said, as recorded by the Huffington Post. “It very much promotes job creation for all the care and services and so on that need to be provided by a lot of people to raise children.”

And if the parent can’t afford to pay for all that job creation? What then, Bob? Huh, Bob? Cat got your Republican tongue, Bob?

Slave labor? Are you asking women to reproduce for all your minimum wage no benefits jobs? It’s cool if you are, Bob, because you’re a jerk either way.

By the way, Bob, I noticed that you are not contributing much to the economy. Two children? Phhhffff.
