Another Current Issue Comment


Y'know what?  Reading Bolger's comments, the problem wasn't that she dared to use the word "vagina."

The problem was that what that in the context she said it in, her statement was tantamount to accusing the Republicans of rape.

If I were a person who favored snark, I might have made the title of this post "Republican Trivializes Date Rape, Censured by Feminists."  I might have played up the fact that intellectually honest feminists should be objecting to her statements as trivializing rape.

I prefer the blunt approach: This is fundamentally dishonest.  To shamelessly steal borrow a phrase from Borepatch, I demand a higher quality drivel.
