Pussies worried about the word Pussy

Grow up Sometimes grown-up adults lob insults. Sometimes they are mean. Often, fools act as though a personal attack is some sort of awful affront. While a personal attack isn’t necessarily conductive to debate* it is not an instant win for the attacked. Grow up. I don’t think Ted Cruz is necessarily a pussy.

Hollywood Hates Women

Their war has to stop. In our current culture saying that a group or industry is waging war on a disadvantaged subset of the population is all the rage, because war is one of those words that we recognize on a near instinctual level.

Big Swinging Dick

Have One My my: Donald Trump: Black people will like me more than they like Obama: “Look, the African Americans love me because they know I am going to bring back jobs,” he told me at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas. Okay, a pretty standard Trumpian boast. But then he said this: “They are going to like me… Read more »

Populism, Nationalism, Conservatism, Oh My

Do you even know what words are? There has been an interesting development among the speakers from the Republican party, from bloggers to radio hosts to columnists and talking heads. Recently they discovered something (well, two things, but we’ll start with one): The Republican Party is supposedly the conservative party in the United States, and we should stand for that!… Read more »
