  1. Santorum continues to make Romney look sane.

  2. Donna -- And THAT is no small feat.

  3. Supposedly "ex-gays" are heterosexual. Are they claiming they're being discriminated against because they're heterosexual? I find that hard to believe.

    I'll bet Obama is eventually going to "compromise" and give the religious nutbags the right to refuse any healthcare that violates their "conscience". Same BS as usual.

    "Santorum slams Romney on contraception mandate for rape victims"

    Makes sense. We shouldn't kill new "life" just because it was conceived via a rape or incest. Let's take it further. If anybody contracts an STD as a result of a rape they're not allowed to get treatment. Why should innocent viruses or bacterium die just because they were passed on by a rapist?

  4. A pleasant surprise from the Air Force. Now that "Crazy Eyes" Bachman is back in Minnesota, maybe we can start the commitment hearings.

  5. Buffy -- With fundamentalists, dogma clouds their empathy so much that they disregard victims. And real people suffer for it.

    Jono -- My heart breaks for Minnesota, now that Bachmann is back!
