“Access to Safe Contraceptives is One Way to Curb Abortion”

That’s the title of this article by Cynthia Tucker.

“Access to Safe Contraceptives is One Way to Curb Abortion.”  This is the kind of sentence that would have most people going “Gee, ya think?”  “No shit Sherlock.”

But there’s a certain other type, a certain subculture, for whom that sentence is either blasphemy, or too difficult to comprehend, or something.

Could the economy — “It’s the Economy, Stupid!” — actually be pushed aside in this election, and replaced by the Culture Wars?

The Culture Wars — the war between Americans who would react to the above sentence with “of course, what’d you think?” and the Other Americans who would react with incomprehension and/or fire and brimstone.

Wars are supposed to be lost by the side that’s dumber; more primitive.  And yet these sperm-cell-worshiping imbeciles keep coming back and back and back.  Reminds me of a bumpersticker I once saw:  “You!  Out of the Gene Pool!”

We need to get C. Everett Koop out of retirement, he was saying the same things 30 years ago and people listened.

Let the culture wars begin. The Klanbaggers aren't going to be able to disenfranchise women fast enough to keep them from stomping them in the next election cycle.

Tom, you know better than to be logical. That never works. This is the age of moronic marketing. Attach a flashy label to it and they'll buy it every time. Poppell's Pecker Popper. Keep those nasty sperm away with only one a day!

Kudos to Cynthia Tucker, although she should realize that by saying things that are based on fact and common sense, she shows herself to be a liberal. 8-)

Like Charleston said. It's about hype and emotion for many on the right. Logic? Who needs that when they can repeatedly win elections and screw up everything without it?

Erik: Today, Everett Koop would be derided as a godless communist who hates America.

JR: I sure hope the Klanbaggers get trounced in November.

Mr. C: You're right, I keep forgetting that logic doesn't work with conservatives. They're all completely dormant until they receive a certain bat signal from their favorite demagogue, and then they instantly switch into Outrage Mode.

Dave: If that's true, we should be seeing rightwingers bench pressing skyscrapers and throwing freight trains around like they were ping pong balls.

Snave: Cynthia Tucker hates America and wants the terrorists to win.

okjimm: The current culture war status -- Activia is kicking Dannon's butt.

SW: You're right; who needs logic when you can just spit out a certain buzzword and get millions of dunces all fired up, right on cue.
