Amanda Marcotte attacked Republicans and those opposed to abortion in a recent post at Rawstory.com. Marcotte is an atheist, and a foul-mouthed one at that.

Imagine that you’re sitting at home eating breakfast, admiring your neighbor’s new car parked just a couple of hundred feet from your kitchen window.
