Rand Paul doesn’t “think there’s anyone in Congress who has a stronger belief in minority rights than I do.” Who knew Rand had such a great sense of humor? He’s HILARIOUS! Great self-denigrating deadpan delivery.

    I was listening to my local NPR station (KUOW FM in Seattle) at 9:00 AM today, and they were doing a bit on Seafair, a local celebration which takes place here every summer. Specifically, they were talking about the Seafair Pirates, a charitable organisation who dress in pirate costumes and collect donations during the festival. They interviewed a spokesman for the organisation (I did not catch his name) who made the argument that the Seafair Pirates doesn’t allow women in their organisation because they never have, and it’s traditional. He said it would weaken the organisation and make it less fun for the people involved. Because women who enjoy dressing up in pirate costumes are no fun at all, I guess. Or something.

    I wish I could find a link to the audio so that I could pass it on for you to verify, but I’m having no luck. All I know is that it was on this programme this morning at almost exactly at 9:00 AM. I just needed somewhere to talk about it and do something other than scream “FUUUUUUUUUUCK YOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!” at my radio over and over again. Because that was some condescending bullshit right there.

      I got NPR to email me the audio clip. If y’all feel like sharing it, is there some way I can email the clip to you?

    Do NOT read the comments on the Pussy Riot article. Just. Don’t.

    I’ve never seen so many people saying “Desecrate a church and you deserve life imprisonment.”
