Weren’t the culture wars mostly just a distraction from things that really mattered the first time around as well? Grr…

Boner and Cantor indulging in the media-abetted phantasm that they are about to “control the government” by virtue of controlling one half of one of its three branches. This kind of talk has been going around ever since November 3 and nobody’s really challenging it. And, the other dood’s histrionic angst about the alleged “kinkiness” of Degeneres’ “grabbing her own breast.” Aren’t they the party of personal liberty and keeping the government out of people’s private lives? Now that they “are” the government, however, I guess it’s a different story. What about all those professional athletes scratching their own rear ends on national t.v.? Maybe they can work something about that stuff into an omnibus reconcilliation bill or something like that. Really.
