He'll probably arch an eyebrow at this

Someone ought to send the articles about Claude Allen to recent Bush administration critic Morrissey.

Shorter Jonah Goldberg

An Economic Virus

Those socialist Democrats are so mean for making American big business pay their taxes. I don't get it.

He must have because I'm linking to Andrew Sullivan. It's pretty well-known now that the loons of the right oppose a vaccine for human papilloma virus (HPV), which is the main cause for cervical cancer in women, because it removes a disincentive to having sex. And, as we all know, sex is icky and no one should have it except to force a woman to carry around a bowling ball that she squeezes out after 9 months. Well, only to the right who see the consequences of sex as punishment.

Thing is, the HPV vaccine would be given to children. Small children. The ones who don't have sex, don't know about sex, don't care about sex. Suffice it to say that the fact that they got a vaccine for HPV at the age of 4 won't particularly enter the mind of a 16 year old with raging hormones. I know it's only anecdotal, but my DiPTet wasn't exactly on my mind when I finished high school.

Plan B

That would refer to the contraceptive, Plan B. The usual understanding is that it irritates the uterine lining, reducing the chances for implantation of a ball of cells. Turns out that this is wrong. It actually delays ovulation, which means there is no ball of cells to implant. And in an ironic twist, the research that determines that Plan B does not in fact reduce the chance for implantation was done at the Catholic University of Chile.

These new results should (and I emphasize "should") stop the anti-abortion crowd from waving bloody fetuses around with respect to Plan B. "Should", but won't, because propaganda comes easier than the truth for them.

Hat tip to no one.

Dark Helmet, White Helmet

Dark Helmet and Marilyn Musgrave (R-hates the Marines). Separated at birth?

Literally,that means "face that cries out for a fist in it".

So who do you really want to punch out today? (Mouthy Granite City hoosiers with too much hooch in them don't count.)

This week, I nominate Bill O'Reilly for Backpfeifengesicht. If you're going to send Fox security goons after someone for saying the words "Keith Olbermann" on the public airwaves, you don't really deserve the benefit of the doubt.

Hat tip to Blah3.

Things I don't think I wanted to know
