Most definitely

Ms. D:

There's Something Happening Here

What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Ok... I've had this rant brewing in my head for a few days now, actually over a week. So some of the material is old news, blogged and reported ad nauseum even. But there's something about all the "headline" stories that's been bothering me...

It all began with the Janet boob flash. If I had only known the power of the almighty boob, I would have tried to creatively make use of some boob flashing to alter the course of history. At a Senate Hearing yesterday, concerning television indecency, a Republican New Mexico Senator was nearly in tears, talking about the invasion of her living room by That Boob. People decrying the traumatization of children by seeing That Boob - "We must protect our children!!" The outrage over That Boob has been a great distraction for the people of the U.S.

Now consider the outrage being expressed over the Mass. Supreme Court ruling that will allow gay couples to get married. People have mobilized on both sides of the issue in mass. (no pun intended) Legislators are scrambling all over the country to pass Constitutional amendments to ensure this atrocity never occurs in their state. Oh the horror! Oh the breakdown of civilization! Our own President has suggested our country's constitution should be amended to protect the sanctity of marriage, making sure this "privilege" is granted to heterosexual couples only. We must protect this country by keeping marriage safe from gay perversion!

(it just gets better)
