Morality

© Steve Kelly How much bad news can we take? Either caused by man or nature? Meanwhile, I had hope that we had heard the last from Michele Bachmann when she lost her seat in Congress, but then Donald Trump decided to become the first sitting president in history to talk at the Values Voter […]

Don’t Make Him Angry

Stephen Colbert is angry because Donald Trump is distracting him from the real news out there. Listen and weep (with tears of laughter):

The Decline in Abortion

You might not believe it if you listen to conservatives, but the US abortion rate has been declining recently — dropping 14% in the last three years — and now has hit a historic low. The rate is now the lowest it has been since abortion became legal in 1973 (we don’t have a precise […]

Go Allred Go!

From Electoral Vote: “Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.” In 1996, when Paula Jones sued then-president Bill Clinton for inappropriate sexual conduct, Republicans were rooting that the Supreme Court would rule that no one was above the law, not even the president, and that private citizens could sue the president. They […]

Is Trump Bad for Marriage?

A poll done by The Guardian concludes that Donald Trump is fueling an especially deep split among married couples. In particular, men are pressuring their wives to vote for Trump, but in many cases the wives are not obeying. At least three door-to-door political canvassers have reported similar stories: after the canvasser leaves a house […]

Sex and Politics

It is good that The Late Show is on late, because it seems Stephen Colbert can’t stop himself from having fun and discussing sex and politics: Go ahead, Google “Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani Drag Queen Motorboat”. Of course, starting today the top result is now Colbert telling you to Google “Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani Drag […]

Legalize Vice!

Once upon a time we tried to make drinking alcohol illegal. We all know how that turned out. And finally (after WAY too long) states are starting to make recreational use of marijuana legal, with promising results. Likewise, we finally eliminated laws against gay sex, and the world didn’t end. In fact, we took the […]

The Difference Between the Right and the Left

After the Nth Gun Massacre in recent history, there was a small attempt to discuss potential ways that we might be able to reduce gun violence. But the far right went nuts (even more nuts than usual), stockpiling guns and ammunition, calling for everyone to carry concealed weapons and allowing more guns in schools, walking […]

“A decorated war hero has an affair with his own sexy biographer, who thinks the spy master is stepping out on her with a second girlfriend. So she sends an email from a secret account saying ‘step off or I will cut a bi-atch.’ And the second hottie freaks out and contacts her friends, FBI […]

Fallopian Fists of Fury!

© Matt Bors In general, I try to ignore media whores (which I define as people who say things to get attention, regardless of whether or not what they say is true). But who can resist a comic that uses the phrase “fallopian fists of fury”? Yes, Limbaugh really did bring up an Italian study […]

The Unspeakable

© Tom Tomorrow Why is it that it is ok to say the words “penis”, “erection”, “erectile dysfunction”, but not the word “vagina”? A study of the use of the words “penis” and “vagina” on network television (counting scripted shows only) found that the word “penis” was used 116 times in the 2010-2011 season, but […]

People in Glass Houses Shouldn’t Promote Abstinence

This video presents a pretty typical right-wing opinion of abstinence education. In it, Representative Mark Souder (R-IN) claims that teaching teens to abstain from sex actually works, opposes teaching them about birth control, and even blames an AIDS victim for catching the disease because he should have abstained. But what makes this video fun to […]

Puritans Run Amok – Schools ban Anne Frank and Webster’s Dictionary

Since when is one parent complaining about a book enough to get it pulled from schools? In seemingly unrelated incidents, a Virginia school district has yanked Anne Frank’s famous diary off its curriculum and shelves, because of a short passage about genitalia: There are little folds of skin all over the place, you can hardly […]
