CONNOLLY: Lord Almighty, what’s America coming to? The disrespect. The misogyny, rampant here today, tells us what is really going on here. This isn’t about some bogus video — the author of whom did not have the courage to appear here, nor would the majority call them because they know he’ll make a bad witness under oath. This is about a Conservative philosophy that says, “we are constitutionalists.” They hold it up. “We believe in rugged individualism and personal liberty” with one big carve-out though. There’s an astericks in that assertion, and that is “except when it comes to women controlling their own bodies.”
