We Knew They Hated Children and the Disabled, But They Also Hate Puppies

Submitted by Jim Aune on April 14, 2011 - 4:27pm

I don't particularly believe in any strong notion of animal rights, but I have a strong sense of our moral obligations to animals. Especially puppies. I love puppies. The Tea Party does not.


The Next Target

Submitted by Jim Aune on April 2, 2011 - 12:30pm

I should have seen this coming, but did not. And if it's happened in Texas, it will come soon to a state near you. The Texas House last night mandated that universities with Women's or GLBT Centers (which only exist to teach "alternative sexuality," apparently) must provide "equal" time for centers that promote the traditional family. I don't know if the Senate will pass the amendment as well, but, hang on, the ride's going to get even bumpier.

I Can't Watch the Hearings Any More

I wonder who is writing the GOP talking points for the Kagan hearings. If judicial activism=Thurgood Marshall, is that a dog whistle about Brown v. Board as the prime case of judicial activism? And we all know what "Upper West Side" is code for.

Not only is Duke basketball evil, so is its view of interpersonal relations.
