In bdog's defense, he didn't bring up perfect storm. Henry Jerkface did. How can anyone blame bdog for associating Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio with "perfect storm"? She was a major babe in that movie. She's still a major babe. What do you have against babes, Beaver?

And speaking of Beaver, I wonder what ever happened to his pal, Whitey.

The GOP can't decide if it's coming or going, but on the Planet Kolob, everyone is coming to Praise the Lord. I bet those strippers in Tampa get some serious tips this week. I hope they do!

Tampa needs free market attitude about prostitution

Criminalizing prostitution doesn't resolve the problem of poverty and doesn't save the prostitutes — it just makes a risky profession even riskier. Municipal governments in cities like Tampa should let consenting adults do as they please, and instead direct their resources to preventing involuntary prostitution where human beings are being violently forced to engage in a business activity they wouldn't engage in freely.

I've got to post the headline to the above cited Onion article, if for no other reason than to piss off Meade.

Thanks to Ned for reminding me of a Bush quote: "You're doing a heck of job, Brownie."

Doesn't this belong in the abortion thread about a woman's absolute right to autonomy over her own body?

Or his own body in the case of male prostitutes.

I'm not sure how many of you tuned in, but I thought it was a nice touch to kick off festivities with an olive branch of sorts. Four "Occupy Wall Street" protesters were invited to sing "Amazing Grace" and the crowd seemed very receptive despite their political differences.

Pendulum is swinging back to Obama.

On RNC Opening Night, Republicans Dare to Build a Lie

It was an entire evening based on a demonstrable lie because it was an entire evening based on rejecting — publicly and dishonestly, and without caring that the facts of your own biographies give the lie to the words you're saying — the idea of a general political commonwealth as expressed through the national government, which has been the great engine behind the expansion of the country's size, the country's wealth, and, yes, the country's freedom.

Does it seem to anyone else that the Democrats slogan could just as well be "We Built It" while the Republicans really should have gone with 'I Built It"?
