Two quick hits: White Men For Anybody But Hillary

By · Wednesday, February 27th, 2008 · 18 Comments »

There’s a piece in Salon this week about the dude vote, those guys who lurve Obama and/or McCain but would rather stab their eyes out with a fork than vote for Hitlery. It’s an amazing phenomenon, really, second only to the phenomenon of people deluding themselves into thinking that the first phenomenon has nothing to […]

You know Hillary Hatred has reached a new height of pathology when Democrats suddenly think Matt Drudge is reliable

By · Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 · Comments Off

So, that picture of Obama in some kind of turban? Matt Drudge says he got it from the Clinton campaign. The Clinton campaign says that’s bullshit. I thought everybody knew that Matt Drudge was a notoriously unreliable right-wing gossip monger with a direct line to Republican operatives. Certainly Democrats have known that for years. But […]

NBC doesn’t want Hillary to be President either

Jesus, I hate it when these filthy rich megamediacorporacrats pull videos from YouTube. Copyright, schmopyright. Bite me. EDITED FOR CLARITY: Anyway, it’s no longer possible to see the YouTube clip for the [fabulous pro-Hillary] “Bitch Is The New Black” thing by Tina Fey on SNL [because evil NBC keeps pulling the goddamn video], but here’s […]

A comment that should have been a post: the difference between the height of Women’s Lib and today

By · Saturday, February 23rd, 2008 · 51 Comments »

I’m in the habit of carrying on substantive conversations with people in the comment threads, so it sometimes happens that my Serious Opinions About Major Issues end up being expressed not in posts, but in off-hand comments. Which is fine, except that whenever people ask me stuff like “where did you say that thing about […]

Why the country still isn’t ready for a woman president

By · Wednesday, February 20th, 2008 · 27 Comments »

This piece at the Boston Globe gives the rundown: Black man vs. white woman. Ignore the freakout at the very end of the article when arch Ev Psycho John Tooby tries to explain it all as the result of Flintstones-era hard coding; just read for insight into present-day American attitudes. This is stuff that psychologists […]

Nope, nothing to do with gender at all

By · Friday, February 15th, 2008 · 12 Comments »

Rush Limbaugh’s latest on Hillary: It’s — a lot of it’s attitudinal — she just — she reminds men of the worst characteristics of women they’ve encountered over their life: totally controlling, not soft and cuddly. Not sympathetic. Not patient. Not understanding. Demanding, domineering, Nurse Ratched kind of thing. Everything you do, you have to […]

Mommy Blogger performs auto-mindfuck online

By · Friday, February 15th, 2008 · 17 Comments »

Erin at Queen of Spain — apparently a popular mommy blogger, though I’ve never heard of her — thinks Hillary should step down. Why? Because she makes people uncomfortable, especially men. And this, according to Erin, has nothing to do with the fact that Hillary is a woman. When I told myself it was gender […]

The anti-Hillary Wave: the sexist old guard plus the sexist new guard. And of course Camille Paglia

By · Thursday, February 14th, 2008 · 26 Comments »

Today the media is dancing on Hillary’s grave, thrilled to the very tips of their dicks (prosthetic or otherwise) that The Bitch Is Going Down. It’s pre-New Hampshire all over again, though this time it may be for real. The sexist old guard is not about to let a woman become President. Some stupid twat […]

Things that having sex with Anthony Kiedis is better than

It has come to my attention that certain individuals are questioning my vacation schedule. In the words of commenter Aunti Disestablishmentarian, “Between your Red hot Chili Pepper and that Raul Feller, you sure do take alot of vacations! You’d give the Preznit a run for his money in terms of ‘most days off.’” Christ on […]

Down the rabbit hole

Sorry. These things happen. I’ve been AWOL on a sex vacation with Anthony Kiedis. I’d planned to be back a few days ago but then John Frusciante begged me to leave Anthony for him and so it was a real situation. I gotta check my email and stuff.
