Guy who accused Lisa Brown of "milking the vagina business" concern trolls women

by: Eric B.

When Lisa Brown was picked as Mark Schauer's running mate, Nolan Finley wrote a column saying that she was still "milking the vagina business." The vagina business, as we all know, was the time that Brown and Barb Byrum were cut off from speaking in the House because Brown said that the men who served in the House at the time should be less concerned with what she does with her vagina. This was on the occasion of the House debating a bill to further restrict the right of women to have abortions. Since that time, as we all know, the same House, albeit with a slightly different membership, voted to approve Right to Life's rape insurance rider. Nolan Finley this morning wrote about last weekend's nomination of Bill Murphy as a pro-Life jurist.

So it is richly ironic that Schauer so ardently embraced the nomination of an anti-abortion Supreme Court candidate at last weekend’s state party convention.

In the week leading up to the convention, women party activists tried to derail the selection of appeals court Judge Bill Murphy for the Democratic ticket. Schauer rebuffed their pleas to choose a pro-choice candidate instead — they had former Macomb Prosecutor Carl Marlinga waiting in the wings.

Like most everything Nolan Finley writes, it's a column that never needed to be written. It's also a column that, given his past on this issue, that Nolan Finley shouldn't have written. But, he wrote it anyway, probably because he lacks the sense of decency and self-awareness to know that he had no business writing it.

Keep in mind that just last week, Finley wrote a column in which he said that Democrats were going to pick one real candidate for the state supreme court and one place holder on the ballot, a chump candidate who they expected was going to be on the receiving end of a good floor mopping. The real candidate, by the way, is Richard Bernstein. The chump is Bill Murphy. If that's true, Nolan Finley is alledging that Democrats planned to nominate one real candidate (Bernstein) and one sack of wheat (Murphy), but for some reason now hate women equally with the people actually voting to restrict access to abortion and who think that Hobby Lobby as an entity has religious beliefs because they hate the idea of women having sex because they nominated for state high court a guy they don't expect to win.

As to the Murphy nomination, I'll defer to people at the convention. I'm not a big fan of litmus tests for candidates, but I can certainly understand why people are less than thrilled with this guy as a candidate. I just don't think Nolan Finley is the guy to bring this up, because he's shameless and dishonest about how he does it.

I'll be a good environmentalist and recycle what I wrote about Finley
Original here.
"There is only one thing more useful in politics than having the right friends, and that is having the right enemies."  Nolan Finley is one of the right enemies for Lisa Brown, and Finley just volunteered for the position.
And, yes, what he wrote was pure concern trolling.  All he wants to do is keep votes for the Democratic nominees down.  Also, he shows that he doesn't understand what the "war on women" is all about.  Of course, it's hard to get a man to understand something if his salary depends on his not understanding it.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!
