I zeroed in on her religion, Catholic, on her website.1 Her life politics is communion chocolate cake topped with Republican butter cream and embossed with the colorful lettering, “Establishment.” Prodded by all the patsy players who can’t endorse until the primary is over, like who can’t shoot until seeing the whites of the eyes – or retreat until seeing the tail between the legs, Ms. Benacquisto comes to the line. Fireless, just spineless and square-panted, Benacquisto’s Florida Senate Majority leader status is far from becoming the majority leader of the Congressional House anytime soon.
Time thinks twice before voting for this candidate. Time punishes a slow-rising, learning curve how to vote, according to the republican establishment, whose votes sway to the prevailing wind. And who in the Republican Party said that a new face of woman politicians is the new face of the Republican Party. New faces of woman politicians in the Republican Party should have some great courage before they get my catholic vote.
Unfairness. Not likely. Her political ad showed itself to be generally unfair, too.2 If I came out with a “When I was 19, I was raped” ad, I would have LOL’s tweeted to me endlessly. Not because I would have been humiliated, but because my victimized cry is irrelevant. Her ad was unfair because it was relevant and because the truth wasn’t addressed: Ms. Benacquisto was not only humiliated according to the dignity of a woman but also life may have been a consequence of irresponsibility.
Harsh. Ever lightly. The truth of the ad was unclear or un-vetted, and the public accepted it like it was diamonds! She only told a counselor. She never prosecuted. Her family knew. If her family knew, Democratic Kevin Rader’s knowing challenge looks like a possibility. If a priest had been the villain, plaintiff attorney would have envied his brass-tacked, cross-doodled mahogany desk. And I would be receiving another political ad paid for by the Republican National Committee, addressing, “James Pat, when I was 29, I was raped, again.” Aw, Golgotha!
Benacquisto disclaims abortions unless from rape and incest in life legislation, a Republican mainstay. I did not bring the question, but was an abortion effected? because Republicans legislate it.
Redundant “forcing a rape” is irrationally used to feign abortion. Benacquisto uses unfairness. Abort, when necessary and sufficient, for the life of the mother. Some mothers do want to deliver the contested child from the womb. Some mothers do want to spare the impoverished child for adoption within a prosperous family. And voters want a Republican congressional candidate who uses political ads for political pro-life legislation. Something good must come out of the rape issue: punishing a rapist or sparing a child.
