The Simplicity of Plan B

Pharyngula explains Why Wingnuts Hate Plan B

Quelle Suprise

I'm so completely not shocked that the Bush administration lies and lies and lies, I really don't know what to say.

Newsflash! Lies! More lies!

Libby Testimony shows a White House Pattern of Intelligence Leaks

Libby Prosecutor Outlines Effort At High Levels: Fitzgerald Aims to Show An Organized Plan Led To Leak of CIA Agent's Name

Oh, and I laughed reading this one.

Leak-Hating President As Leaker-In-Chief?

A president better mean what he says? This from the guy who, what, didn't mean what he said, ever? Wasn't he just quoted a couple weeks ago saying one thing but apparently just trying to lift people's spirits?

I'm not complaining. (Well, in a more general sense, of course I am! Geez! My Vitale grandfather, lo, many years ago, told me to go into public service. "People like you need to", he said, or something to that effect. People like me. Honest people, who want to make a difference. As opposed to most politicians.)

I'm just not surprised.

Insightful Discussion on the Meaning of Gang Rape in a Patriarchy

Read it here. Be sure to read the comments, too.

One writer disagrees with Amanda's characterization of gang rape as the essential scene of patriarchy, but I think they're talking past each other. Amanda seems to be saying that gang rape epitomizes patriarchy, is patriarchy in a nutshell. I agree completely.
