Oh, man, that's so much better than my take on it!

If we could harness the power of the crappy ideas coming out of the state of Arizona, we could probably power a rocket ship to the moon, where there are no Mexicans or fertile wombs and everyone can be free to be as mean a cranky asshole as they want at all times!

I hate to even select an excerpt, the whole thing is so good.

If only I could blog all day and not have to fix crappy bikes, maybe I could be that good!

How much self loathing can one party have?

War on women is right.

"Ah, yes, the Soviet Union. The sort of place where a woman might think about getting birth control through an insurance plan to which she contributes premiums without having to show her boss her prescription in order to prove that she wasn’t using it to not get pregnant. The Soviet Union. A hellscape where women don’t run the risk of losing their jobs over their sexual practices. What a horrible, awful place where herds of sluts run wild like feral ponies, humping everything in sight. The nightmare of unwilling motherhood evaded is a constant spectre in The Motherland."

flippin fantastic, jez

Holy shit! That's a whole lot of crazy!

I am so far beyond being surprised by anything coming out of the GOP these days, that anything short of Bryan Fisher standing on his head and shitting Ron Paul campaign buttons barely registers any more.

Sadly, these days it's par for the course.

I'm amazed that any woman can vote for the GOP. You really have to hate yourself to put taxes or some other issue over a woman's autonomy and right to decide her own health care.

There was a woman from Alabama being interviewed briefly on NPR today. She was pretty clear on the need to bring Gd all the way into American politics and daily life, because that's why this nation was founded.

There are a lot of people who believe that man's dominion over woman is a divine precept going back to the original sin. No amount of education, science or enlightenment is going to ever be able to help them.

My theory on all these contraception plans is that if an unmarried woman is having sex without fear of pregnancy, how is she being punished?

Sure, it is fine for boys to sow their wild oats, but only bad girls have sex outside of marriage.

I recommend reading "Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia by Jean Sasson" to get an idea of what life for women would be like here if the religious fanatics ever manage to get their way.

OK, things are officially insane now.

"Freedom!" and "We are not the Soviet Union!"

And that's why we need this law? Oh help.

To wingnuts, "freedom" mean "getting things our way." Thats why they see no irony in taking away other people's rights and calling it freedom.

Oh look, yet another reason not to go anywhere near Arizona (rolls eyes.)

I didn't see anything about Men being prescribed Viagra submitting their marriage license.

 Frank says:

Interviewer:
The notion of a "guitar solo" has preconceptions based on it; people automatically refute it because it's supposed to be self-indulgent or "for musicians." It's almost like things become iconographic and somehow lose their value for outsiders.

Zappa:
Well, whose fault is that? That's what writers do. Musicians don't do that. The average person doesn't sit around thinking about the "iconographic problems of a guitar solo." -- Interview for Musician magazine, by Matt Resnicoff, November 1991. Reprinted in July 1995 Issue.
