Day-yumn. And here I thought all the Republican crazy was here in Tennessee.

So the movie version will star Jason Segel and Rachel McAdams, right?

"Conscience clauses" are now standard in red states. And it's only going to get worse. Look for church-operated private universities to launch pharmacy degree programs. Why? So they can churn out right wing assholes to work your local Walgreen's and make sure no women folk get any drugs they don't approve of. Lipscomb University here in Nashville is a Church of Christ affiliated school which just launched a pharmacy program, but other fundie schools are doing likewise.

OMG yes a thousand times YES. I've written about this a ton of times. Our media is so freaking lazy I could scream. Enough with the stenography, people. This is an age of YouTube, I can hear what someone says for myself. I need a reporter to do some work and actually, you know, verify some stuff. Be skeptical. Call bullshit on this stuff more often.

It's not just on the gay issue, it's on EVERYTHING these idiots say. Here in Tennessee our wackadoodle governor and lieutenant governor have taken to saying any old crap -- there are jobs but no job applicants bec… is a famous example -- and the reporters just print it. No one ever says "Really? Who told you they have job openings and no applicants? Give me a name."

Please, I beg of you. A return to skepticism in our news media would do the nation a whole helluva lot of good.
