@mkyorai ... It doesn't sound like a signal of rationality ... Schmidt was apparently out-flanked by an even more extreme Right Wing Nut ...

@12: They get that they're fighting for you. It probably irks them that, as activists, they're actually out there shooting -- even if haphazardly -- while most self-proclaimed "progressives" are too lazy to do much more than be sulky and irked.

commented on Bristol Palin: Levi Raped Me
Bristol's story reminds me of something written in the mid-1970s by the wonderful essayist Florence King. A chapter of her book "Southern Ladies and Gentlemen" was titled (something like) "The Self-Rejuvenating Virgin," featuring the range of rationalizations that the unmarried, sexually-repressed Southern Good Girl used to deny the loss of her virginity, no matter how many times the event occurred. I think the very first rationale on the list was "It didn't really happen, because I was drunk at the time."

commented on I Hope NY's State Senators Realize...
If the Republican leadership doesn't at least allow it to come up for a vote, then those Republican state senators who courageously said they'd vote for it are totally screwed -- the right-wing-nuts will knock them out during the primary.
