Danica Patrick Makes Absurd Political Statement, Bog Dwellers Hardest Hit

Posted on | February 23, 2012 | 33 Comments

by Smitty

No word on whether Troglopundit’s admiration for Danica Patrick can survive this development:

NASCAR driver Danica Patrick isn’t particularly concerned about the Obama administration’s dictate that religious employers provide health care plans that cover contraceptives.
“I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for Americans,” Patrick, a Roman Catholic, told The Daily Caller Tuesday when asked about the controversy.

No, Danica, the government is not as smart as the automotive engineers who designed your engine. Misplaced faith is such a shame.

Update from the Bloviator-in-handker-Chief:

Danica’s response has spurred literally oodles of derisive comments at the Daily Caller and at least one example of blatant anti-troglodyte guilt-by-association.
Does no one else find it odd that the Daily Caller – purportedly a serious conservative organization – is so very interested in Danica Patrick’s opinion on contraceptive mandates?

Why, no: no, I did not. In an example of pre-mature blovulation, you correctly pointed out the over-riding ‘anti-troglodyte guilt-by-association’ motive driving the post in a rather large oval, lap after lap.

Who cares why the Daily Caller asked her, if it affords opportunity to heap abuse about your head and shoulders?

    Then again, in the case of ole’ Danica, having the government think for her might be an improvement.

    She’s a race car driver. The shame here is that someone asked her this question and then reported her answer as though it were news.
    As far as I can tell she didn’t go out of her way to inject herself into this issue.

    As an avid Nascar fan I can tell you that sentiments such as what has been said by her here will not sit well among her fellow garage dwellers.   She’ll get schooled well enough and we’ll never hear about it…  (it will still be funny when she wins a race before Jr. does)

    I’m having trouble visualizing what she looks like.  Isn’t there some way to make sure when you talk about people like her that we can know who you really mean?

    I should think there’s even a sort of “rule” about this.

     Yes, exactly!  Why, exactly, did the Daily Caller go out of their way to ask her this question?  How many other race car drivers did they ask?  HOW MANY OTHER SWIMSUIT MODELS?

    I didn’t realize until this incident with Danica Patrick just how narrow minded and imbecilic most of you are…  Danica Patrick is a race car driver who has million of fans and is supported by a number of sponsors who fund her racing to the tune of at least $50 million in advertising per year.
    Danica Patrick is also a very intelligent woman. Why The F**k would she be so stupid as to make any comment about this contraception issue other than a throw away comment like the one she did make? Are you friggin nuts? Do you think she would risk throwing away her career just to satisfy you jerk offs by giving a strong answer?
    Get your heads out of your buttholes.
    You know who I am peed off with? That stupid dolt Michelle for trying to corner her with one of the most controversial questions of the day just to generate some crap. Screw DC and Screw Michelle for even doing this.
    Are any of you morons aware that she is preparing this week by practicing and qualifying for the biggest race of the year for NASCAR, the Daytona 500? WTF is contraception got to do with that?
    For all you moron bitchers… lick your buttocks… its probably the best meal you could have.

    I figured it out…. you dolts who are complaining about what Danica said are crapping your pants because here is an intelligent woman who can drive a race car way better than any of you guys and makes multi-millions of dollars each year while you dolts toil away to earn a
    pittance. I laugh at you because you are obviously losers when compared to her…   want to see someone who is confident, comfortable in her own skin who doesn’t give a crap what you think? Here it is…
