UPDATED: American democracy is fucked. and so are we. ~.m. by maria b.

i couldn't find a picture with all the crooked conservative justices in it, so i picked the one who is the most intellectually and morally corrupt.

so, the conservatives and “moderates” on the SCOTUS can lick a sweaty, hairy scrotum. they’ve just fucked the election process for the country, and, indirectly, all of us. in rare bipartisan fashion, both republican and democratic leaders are denouncing the decision. i need to move to Norway. i’m no constitutional scholar, but i fail to understand how a corporation’s First Amendment rights were being impinged upon by making them separate corporate profits from political monies. but, then again, i don’t consider a corporation to be a person, either. the majority opinion is a bunch of horseshit that goes against several precedents (aren’t conservatives the ones who are always railing against judicial activism??), and the effects of their decision will play out in the midterm elections this fall.

i’m too furious about the whole things to talk straight about this mess, but i’ve read and seen a couple things that explain why this decision is wrong-headed and bad for the country and its political process. this is the best one, but my new second-favorite senator (to Russ Feingold (D-WI)) Alan Grayson (D-FL) started working to counteract this decision before the Supreme Court had made its official ruling on the case. but an AP article published last week talks about a letter from 40 CEOs that are sick of being harrassed for campaign donations by Congressmen/women for money–and this was BEFORE this last SCOTUS decision on corporate political donations. ugh, i’m absolutely irate. and don’t even get me started on health insurance reform.

alito.

also: i’m really disappointed in Obama.

UPDATE: the folks over at Jezebel are just as worried about this SCOTUS decision as anyone, especially considering the implications it has on how the court might rule in a Roe related case. Justice Kennedy, what say you?

I’m getting really sick of walking to work in cold weather.  What I need is a giant koala bear that I can latch on to, who will take me back and forth to the office.  I’m sure the eucalyptus air freshener smell of him would just make the trip that much more pleasant.



quote of the week: Nov. 15, 2009. ~.m. by maria b.

“[T]here’s no better training ground for politics than motherhood.”

-Sarah Palin, in Going Rogue

i feel like–maybe–we ought to ask Hilary what she thinks on that. maybe sexy sarah thinks that because she went and had five kids because the Bible told her to do her husband’s bidding and not to use any contraception and lost control of her home… but let’s humor her and briefly compare motherhood and politics. the old joke about politicians and diapers notwithstanding, how the fuck could she seriously make that comparison??

i need one of two things to happen: she needs to retire to Alaska and never be heard from again, or become a pariah in American media, held up for ridicule and for laughs. by everybody, not just the Left.

runner-up quote after the jump! Continue reading



“If I don’t get a vibrator today, I’m going straight to Target for a Doodle Pen.” by -Z- by -Z-

D called me this morning and told me our first priority of the day was to get new vibrators (both of ours have been out of commission).  That said, she swooped down to my house from her Castle of Awesomeness in her Chariot of Ford, picked me up, and away we went to A Woman’s Touch.  

We spent a good hour at A Woman’s Touch. Oh man, there are so many options.  The staff there, incredible. They gave us free testers of lube, as it was our first time there.  They answered all of our questions and when I hemmed and hawed for 25 minutes about whether to drop the mad dollas on the above piece of genius, or get a $30 toothbrush looking vibrator, they didn’t lose their patience….they offered us chocolate!  So, I settled on the Nea and D bought the Lily. Essentially, they are the same, except D’s (see below) has a silicone finish (less slippery).

 Selling points…they are small and are easily useable solo AND during sexo. They also have mad power and motors guaranteed for a year.  The batteries last for 7 hours, and that is in between charges.  That’s right, they charge like a cell phone! HUGE SELLING POINT for me and D.  Your big O doesn’t get interrupted by dead batteries!  I swear, it’s a baller device, and they come in cases that look like a diamond necklace should be inside.  They are sweet looking, design oriented.  It’s like the iPhone of vibrators (eee!),  and I for one, am pleased.  D will have to let us know how she likes hers. 

I thought I’d try mine out solo first, but Junior the NSA dropped by and got to do the honors.  It was UBER great, and now his fears of being replaced have tripled, thanks to my sweet Nea.  I might be out of commission for a little while…..I’m just sayin’.  Aaawwwiiiiiinkk!
