Stupak tells conservative news outlet White House pressuring him to keep quiet on Senate bill

Conservative news outlet reported Tuesday that "Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said the White House and the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives have been pressuring him not to speak out on the 'compromise' abortion language in the Senate version of the health care bill.

"'They think I shouldn't be expressing my views on this bill until they get a chance to try to sell me the language,' Stupak told 'Well, I don't need anyone to sell me the language. I can read it. I've seen it. I've worked with it. I know what it says. I don't need to have a conference with the White House. I have the legislation in front of me here.'"

Can it be that Stupak doesn't have a primary opponent?

Stupak arrived home for Christmas and un-chained his wife from the bed headpost. He then ordered her to fix his dinner and clean herself up to receive her christmas present.

Stupak then celebrated christmas by having breakfast with his parish priest and his altar boys. They discussed how to suppress all women's rights.

Stupak favors all women signing an anti-abortion pledge or be "cained" in public.

Stupak attened mass twice and received communion 4 times before departing church for his house in order to unchain the wife from the bed headpost.

He wisher everyone Merry Christmas except for gays, independent women and wveryone else.
