Sid Miller’s social media lesson – the comments he didn’t want you to see

Texas State Representative Sid Miller (R-eject), the author of the invasive sonogram law in Texas, got a quick lesson in social media today, when on Facebook he posted the Doonesbury cartoon featuring state legislator “Sid Patrick.” The cartoon lampoons the sonogram legislation Miller and state senator Dan Patrick passed.



Round Two of Doonsbury today. This time he refers to the house arthur (Sid) and the Senate sponsor( patrick) Well as long as they are talking about you, right.

Sid “JR Ewing” Miller

Yes, it was really spelled “arthur.”

It wasn’t long before angry people began posting on Miller’s Facebook photo. So Miller hid the photo from his wall, not realizing that those who knew the web address at which the photo was located would be able to continue posting. Miller ultimately deleted the photo, and thus the comments.

Except that we grabbed ‘em first.

Here are the best of them:

I’m experiencing a heavier than normal period combined with debilitating cramps and a migraine. Ordinarily I’d go to my doctor for advice, but now that I’ve learned that the VA legislature knows more about my ladybits than my doctor does I figured I’d come to you for advice. What do you recommend I do?


Yay for mens and their dangly parts making all the choices for wimmins. Gots to keep us barefoot, pregnant, and ignorant. Maybe every man who goes for a vasectomy should have to look at images of the millions and millions of little babies hSee More


I just want to thank you Mr. Miller. I know I could never make a decision about my own health without your help. In fact, I have a question for you. I am currently on my period and it’s a decidedly strange one. There are extra clots that i See More



Hi Sid, you know I think you’re totally on to something here and I’d just love it if you could see your way to introducing a bill that would have men be responsible for every uterus they come in contact with. Heck I’d rather not have to makSee More



Hey Sid! I’m having some heavy menstrual cramps this month, and I’m not sure what to do about it. I was going to call my doctor, but you seem to be an expert on the female reproductive system, so I figured I’d just ask you! Why go to the doSee More



I’m going to send you my daily vag report so you can help me navigate the tricky business of being a woman. Without Vag Mr Wizards like yourself, ladies would be lost. I’m sure you have that magic cure for PMS or endo or cramps, See More



Come on guys, Sid studied at Cisco Junior College, he is obviously highly trained and informed on medical practices.



Fetuses are people til they become women.


Dear Sid, You are a moron. So is your bill.


Since you are so concerned with my vagina, I’ll give you an update! Because of my birth control, my Vagina is doing fine and dandy today. I have an IUD, so I don’t get a real period. But around the same time every month I get a slightly brSee More


WTF is a house arthur? It sounds like a strapping young man in cut-off Levis who serves drinks and rubs feet.



oh, god… you don’t even know the difference between “author” and “arthur”. Why the hell are you trying to legislate my healthcare when you’re clearly barely even literate?


As awful and unamerican as this bill is, I think I might be more horrified that a physician (as Austin claims to be) cannot spell the name of a commonly-discussed medical procedure. I hope you don’t have any plans to arthur any legislation, like Mr. Miller.


Hey Sid how’s it going? Look, I know you’re busy campaigning and all, so I figured I’d save you some time and leave you a report to peruse at your leisure. For some reason, ever since I passed 40, my pubic hair seems to be growing toward mSee More


this procedure prices a lot of women out of options. but sid isn’t going to pay to feed, clothe or educate the unwanted children once they are born.



Rep. Miller: How come you and your ideological colleagues don’t apply the same logic here as you do with firearms? After all, abortion is LEGAL in this country. So, why should you put so many Big Government restrictions on it?

Update: at the moment, the good Representative still doesn’t have his Facebook page locked down, and despite him deleting the photo, people continue to share their feelings regarding his sonogram bill there.

Another Update: apparently the good Representative has finally awakened his staff, who are removing non-supportive comments now. But they do seem to stay put for a little while at least.

    I am upset. Tried to post a comment but Miller had already chickened out. And I spelled ‘moron’ & ‘cockamamie’ correct and everthing.

    Before I got to the third paragraph, I was disappointed you passed up the chance to type “(Sic Sid)”. (Was a bit afterwards too.)

    Again, I love you.

    The comments are priceless! This is good. Sharing on Kick Butt Liberals on Facebook–they will LOVE it!

    What a complete idiot. Left comments in his FB page…this needs to go viral fast before he shut’s down his wall. Spread the word, not your legs!

    Ladybits and dangly parts. I always wondered what those things were called.

    Ol’ Sid does resemble J. R. somewhat. He’s a looker for sure! Wonder what his Viagra tab is.

    His FB page has been removed.

    I guess since he was so hell bent on keeping women barefoot, pregnant and in the KITCHEN… it got a little too hot for him.

    Tragedy.

    I noticed he had another comment from the A-AS regarding the lawsuit on the bill. He said (sic) “judge Sparks dismissed the lawsuiot against my hb15 sonagram bill. Entire bill is set free and now has no challenges to it”. Then the link. What he didn’t put, and apparently his fans didn’t read the article is Spark’s comment
    “Sparks wrote that he remained convinced that the law violates the U.S. Constitution by infringing on doctor’s free speech rights and by impairing the exercise of their medical judgment.”
    I did a screen capture, attempted to comment, found I am now blocked from commenting on his page, and now, 2 minutes later, his post is GONE. Screen capture here

    Harold, dang, we’ve spread to Virginia with this lady business stuff: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/virginia-politics/post/lady-business-activism-floods-va-republicans-facebook-pages/2012/03/15/gIQAm8A8DS_blog.html?hpid=z5

    I’m blaming it on you.

    Can someone please find the cave from which these archaic life forms escaped. I feel certain we could round up an army of volunteers to herd them back home. I think it is probably somewhere in Arizona and it must be huge.

    Pinkie: I found the cave where the Women Hating idiots hide out!! It is in Alaska and you can see Russia and Palin’s house from it. There is a BIG picture of Sarah at the alter and you have to kneel and reflect 3 times a day to it or onbelieving men will be castrated and/or women will get the Republican camera up their vagina. (A woman can close their eyes during the procedure.) Castration is third strike. Stikes one and two will mean the Viagra will be taken away.

    Now if you click on Sid’s photo link, facebook comes back with, “Sid only shares some information publicly.”

    hilarious. :D

    I can’t help but laugh on some of the comments. He should have hired a Fresno SEO company out there to take care of his online reputation.
