A Great Response To Yet More Bush Administration Insanity Courtesy Of Mark Morford

"I think I get it now.

The latest pitiable GOP plan, from what I can tell, goes something like this: To make the remaining Bush administration proposals and doctrines and cultural stratagems so outlandish and silly and degrading and insulting to your mind, heart and your very own beleaguered genitalia that you cannot help but laugh and cringe and sit back and go, "Oh my God these people have got to be kidding."

At which point (they hope) you will turn to your spouse or your significant other or your dog and say, "Hey honey, check this out, did you see the latest moronic and horrible dictum from the Bush administration? We should totally try it, just for kicks!"

Then the GOP will gloat and say: "See? The world still loves the GOP! Yay us!" And then they shall proceed to smack themselves in the face with a brick.

It is the only viable explanation. It is the only way to account for something like, say, the latest twist in the Abstinence Education Program from Bush's increasingly laughable Department of Health and Human Services, a $50 million slice of embarrassing government detritus that is now actually encouraging all states to tell their single, youngish residents that they should -- how to put this so you don't shoot coffee through your nose? -- that everyone should avoid sex entirely until they turn 30.

It's for real. It's an actual HHS dictum and there are people who actually believe it should be adhered to, and I'm right now guessing you broke this rule this very morning and if you didn't, you really, really wanted to, and if you're older than 30 and/or married, chances are you are sitting there right now wishing you were still single and/or younger than 30 just one more time just so you could squishily, juicily break that rule again, oh my God yes please. Just a guess."

More here.

Have you ever seen a more perfect example of a people, this time religious fundamentalists, exposing their fears and hatred more than this?

The loathing they must feel towards their own bodies and desires must be just unbearable. But, then again, if you are among the living dead then maybe you don't actually feel anything at all.

You should read Mark Morford on a regular basis.

It's good for your sanity.

Really, it is.
