At Least a Grain

Franz: Liberals are so humane. They force us to make everything handicapped-accessible -- from banana stands to NASCAR crew pits. They want special education funded by the taxpayer for every condition from autism to ennui. And then they do the math: If all these kids get out of the womb alive, they're going to be too [] expensive. So they try to intercept them before they acquire all those pricey "rights." You want to see the liberal future? It's a really fancy wheelchair lift, faced by an empty wheelchair.

Rayne: And your Tea Party future?

Franz: A high curb, faced by an old-fashioned wheelchair, with a real live person sitting in it. Like a real American, he'll be complaining. Probably using his Blackberry to call a lawyer . . .

I was fine until I read the 2 men mocking women who wail on about the suffering they endured in pregnancy. Sure, perhaps some women over-dramatize, but that's kinda rich of these characters to mock them. And this is from a woman who cannot bear children.
