We all need some therapy, because someone came along and said that liberal means ‘soft on crime.’ Soft on drugs. Soft on communism. Soft on defense. And we’re gonna tax you back to the stone age because people shouldn’t have to go to work if they don’t want to. And instead of saying, ‘Well, excuse me, you right-wing, reactionary, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-education, anti-choice, pro-gun, Leave-it-to-Beaver-trip-back-to-the-fifties!’ we cowered in the corner and said, ‘Please. Don’t. Hurt. Me.’ No more. Bruno Gianelli, The West Wing

Bro-choice - Jon Stewart

Al Madrigal reports on location from Oklahoma, where a proposed amendment to its “personhood” bill would effectively outlaw male masturbation.

I was disturbed by many of the comments.  It seemed that people don’t understand satire and the double standard being played here.

[W]e’re the ones demanding change, and we’re the ones who keep fighting for it. Every time I hear some liberal complaining about the way that conservatives keep turning everything into a new front in the culture war, I feel a twinge of chagrin. Why are we complaining? We’re the ones who really own the culture war, and we should be proud of it. It was a war worth starting and a war worth winning.

We’ve reached a national consensus. People in the educated class talk like social progressives and behave like traditionalists. People in the less educated classes talk like social conservatives and behave like libertines… To me the thing that took the stuffing out of the culture wars is that the social fabric began to repair. Teenage pregnancy rates are down. Abortion rates are down. Crime is down. There are problems with the social fabric but they no longer have to do with the sexual revolution.

When Rick Santorum talks about this stuff in the way he does, it’s theology, not sociology. And believe me, there are very few Americans who are strongly theological, even the ones who attend services every week.

TRIGGER WARNING: “Abortion Saved My Life,” by Mikki Kendall
“My two kids at home almost lost their mother because someone decided that my life was worth less than that of a fetus that was going to die anyway. My husband had told them exactly what my regular doctor said, and the ER doctor had already warned us what would have to happen. Yet none of this mattered when confronted by the idea that no one needs an abortion. You shouldn’t need to know the details of why a woman aborts to trust her to make the best decision for herself.”

If Americans vote for Republicans in the next election It’ll be like:

  • George Bush comes into your bedroom and smears shit all over the walls.
  • So you invite Obama round to clean it up.
  • he doesn’t clean it very well.
  • so you invite Bush’s friend round to smear MORE shit on the walls.

If I’ve been following US politics correctly, it’s more like “he doesn’t clean it very well because Bush’s friends won’t let him use a mop”

This is the best summary ever.

Mean Girls jokes are so played out but I just want to say that terming Bill Clinton a “sexually active band geek” literally made me spit out a little bit of water.

Holy crap! In this moment I understand why politics frustrates me so much, it’s because it’s like High School. I know that pretty much all organizations are still High School but this shit, this is Movie High School.
