The Morning News

posted by on March 30 at 6:45 AM

Gonzales: Involved in prosecutor firings, according to former aide Kyle Sampson, who testified yesterday. Which means Gonzales, the top law-enforcement official in the country, lied to Congress. Which is a crime.

Vague but incriminating: Sampson on the stand. (See also here, here, here, here, and here.)

Rude Welcome: Bombs kill more than 100 on new US Ambassador’s first day in Iraq.

Shut It Down: Defense secretary Robert Gates tells Congress Guantanamo should be shuttered.

Shorter Phyllis Schlafly: Better lie back and enjoy it, because once you’re married, you can’t say no.

Charges Dropped: In goat spray-painting case (?!?).

Oh, Oh: Single women have more orgasms.

The Farm Bill: Why you should care.

Erica: do you have a effigy of Phyllis that you stick pins into? She is the anti-Erica.

I'm kind of thrilled to have Phyllis back in the news. The hair, the scary-grandma quality. She is indeed the anti-Erica.

It's not marriage that kills female orgasms, it's having kids.

Once Phyllis is done making ERA opponents look like paleolithic morons, do you think we can get her to come campaign for the viaduct?

I wanted to care about the farm bill until I got half way down the article to find a FUCKING ADVERTISEMENT for the self-serving author's book.

In other morning news, I just read on King 5 that the Pharmacy board is at it again, and considering whether to allow pharmacists to deny women Plan B, and are making a decision today.

Umm... what? How did this slip under the radar? Didn't this get resolved last year?

I'm so glad you lost the bolding...
something about that was was bugging me, but I'm not sure what it was. I do love the Slog intro into the morning news though.

"It may be focusing on Colin Firth's smouldering eyes, some romantic novel or a waterfall or whatever."

THAT is an Onion-worthy sentence.

Stupid sex therapists have way too much time on their hands. Of couse, women AND men can achieve orgasm more easily through masterbation because they do it all the time and they know what "floats their boat." So what's the purpose of this ridiculous study? Stay single and lonely but get off more often?

Chip, the issue is not which is easier for attaining orgasm, it's which is *successful*. I bet similar %s of men can achieve orgasm whether it's done alone or with a partner, even if it's easier to achieve alone.

The purpose, I dunno. I guess as cannon fodder for when a guy pisses a girl off.

Did Schlafly write the script for Marnie, by any chance?
