“I think that humor has under-appreciated explanatory value. If you are trying to explain something to a broad audience, using humor is sometimes a way to help people either make a leap in logic with you or shorthand to what’s important about something. Usually when I use humor on the show, it’s in the form of absurdity. I’ve pointed out something that somebody says is normal that I think is not normal or that something that should be seen as very serious that I don’t think deserves seriousness. You can explain that away or you can poke fun at it, but sometimes it’s not only shorter to poke fun at it, but also more effective at moving the argument along.” — Rachel Maddow [complete interview here]

Just gonna reblog everything NPR posts on Rachel for today.

It is time to stop with the old Chuck Norris jokes, and start new ones pointing out how foolish he actually is.  ~ Steve

The Bible’s the greatest game of ‘Telephone’ in history. Jesus said ‘Love your enemies,’ Rick Santorum heard ‘Nuke Iran.’ @JohnFugelsang (via apoplecticskeptic)

Rick Perry claims “gullible” not in dictionary

“I heard it somewhere,” he says. Adds he “doesn’t have that kind of time” when asked if he bothered to check.

I appreciate that Ms. Tantaros wants us all to get laid more often. I am 100% behind the “get laid more often” plan, and if Fox News is on board, then hey. But Tantaros seems to be under the impression that women having sex for pleasure means we get laid less often (or at least less well), which is confusing. Because if feminists aren’t having sex, how are we able to get pregnant in order to have ALL of the abortions? And who does she think makes up the ranks of lesbians who are in the slow and steady process of ruining both marriage and America? SO MANY QUESTIONS. Throw a girl a bone here.

I didn’t watch the video because I don’t feel like getting angry right now, but I always appreciate some good feminist snark.

All the abortions.

ALL the abortions? ALL THE ABORTIONS!! (cue meme that I can’t draw)

“I just wanted to say to him:
If its ok for you to rape me because I was dressed like a ‘slut/skank/ho/whore’; then is it ok for me to shoot/stab/maim/kill you because you are a male who looks threatening? Aren’t you asking for it?”
