On the Right there are people who are sensible, articulate, willing to compromise and not poisoned by religion. They’re hard to find because the nutjobs are a lot louder and hog the camera. That being said, Todd Akin is an asshat. No, he’s a hemmoroid. An asshat just wanders about and offends everyone he or she comes in contact with. As a hemmoroid Akin is an itch that is unpleasant, private and in bad need of scratching. The public scratching has begun. Most everybody from Mitt on down want this guy off the ticket and as far away from the public as possible. The problem is he won’t go away. He offered a mealy-mouthed appology and figured everything was just perfect. No way. His misinformation was outrageous, unprovable and just plain wrong. There is no hemmoroid cream that will work. I’ve heard tales of roids as big as grapes. Akin is a grapefruit and unfortunately inoperable. Anyway, what is legitimate rape? She says no and the guy forces himself? They both sign an affadavit stating it was against her will? Rape is an act perpetrated on another as a reinforcement of dominance and sexual subjugation. Thomas Jefferson was a rapist. He owned and imprisioned Blacks for his own profit. An interlude with a slave is rape. The Right-wing extemists want abortion banned in all cases. Okay, if you’re so adamantly against abortion, how about adopting the children? They deserve a life. You wanted them brought into the world. It’s a perfect match. And a plus you can have trophy children without having sex with your trophy  wife, or mistress, or aide.

IF THERE ARE ANY MEN READING THIS LISTEN UP. WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO LEGISLATE ABORTION. WE DON’T GET PREGNANT. WE DON’T CARRY THE CHILD FOR NINE MONTHS. WE DO NOTHING BUT BLOW A WAD AND ROLL OVER AND FALL ASLEEP. SINCE WOMEN ARE ENTRUSTED WITH THE INITIAL CARE OF THE CHILD IT SHOULD BE UP TO HER IF SHE WISHES TO CARRY TO TERM. WHEN YOU GET KNOCKED UP GUYS THEN YOU CAN TALK.

I have a personal stake in this. I’m adopted. If my birth mother didn’t go to Catholic Family Services and chose to terminate I wouldn’t be here making a nuisance of myself. It’s conflicted me for a very long time. The only thing I could come up with is; it’s a personal choice. Just like everything else we have to live with the consiquences.

Oprah on the Kardashians, I’ll keep that date open on my calendar. There’s nothing I want to watch more than the “Queen of Daytime” share facetime with the family that possesses the soul of Bruce Jenner, and a whole lot of people too lazy to read a book or change the channel.

Waterbed is not leaking despite a lot of curiousity on the part of the cat. Bought a matress pad. Should keep the little bugger from poking those little hard to find holes.

TALK TO ME, I DON’T BITE. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. ADOPT A KID. ADOPT A SHELTER PET. ADOPTED KIDS REALLY APPRECIATE HAVING SOMEBODY TO WATCH OVER THEM WHEN THEY’RE IN ISOLATION FOR THE NIGHT. CLEAR OUT STANDING WATER, WEST NILE VIRUS ISN’T SOMETHING THE TALKING HEADS ON THE NEWS TALK ABOUT TO FILL TIME. LOOK INTO THIRD AND FOURTH PARTY CANDIDATES, THERE’S SOME GOOD IDEAS THERE.

I’m thinking of putting up a poll comparing artists doing the same song. I’ve got some research to do on how to do it and rights.

See you on Friday.
