In my neck of the woods, this is called "cutting off one's nose to spite one's face."

Centrist Women Tell of Disenchantment With Republicans 

You can't insult, belittle, demean and threaten 50% of the population and expect their support.

What's hilarious about this is that President Obama doesn't have to say a word. He's just standing back and watching the Republicans guarantee his re-election. The level of cluelessness on their part is just astonishing.

But I suppose that's what happens when you put purity and ideology (and religious precepts that absolutely do not belong in government) ahead of actually governing.

I saw this very weird commercial from my recording of "Battlestar Galactica" last night, with an equally strange IRL--dontpassgas.com. So on a whim, I went to visit it today. Imagine my surprise when I realized they were actually talking about cigarettes--I thought they were discussing not farting inside!

Yeah, sometimes I'm slow on the uptake.

I'm sure some people will regard this as my being Struck Over the Head With a Most Obvious Clue-By-Four, but really, I hadn't considered this subject in quite this way until now.

  1. 1. Feminists couldn’t agree more that men are stereotyped and that society’s expectations of men are emotionally (and often physically) damaging.
        2. Feminists are confused and bewildered as to why more men don’t seem to do anything about it.

Words To Live By

There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away. ~Emily Dickinson

Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of a job: it’s always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins. ~Neil Gaiman

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in. ~Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The road to hell is paved with adverbs. ~Stephen King

The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read. ~Mark Twain

I feel free and strong. If I were not a reader of books I could not feel this way. ~Walter Tevis
