GOP Jerk’s Wife Withholds Sex Because Of Transvaginal Ultrasound Bill

Dave Albo is a Republican in the Virginia House of Delegates whose wife decided against sexing him — in flagrante delicto, apparently! — once she heard, on the teevee news accompanying their intercourse, about the creepy transvaginal ultrasound bill Dave’s party was pushing last week. Thanks to Wonkette commenter “UnholyMoses,” we can all enjoy Albo’s first-person account of the unexpected interruptus of his coitus.

Albo used the House’s weekly comedy open mic not only to relate his charming tale of conjugal visitry gone wrong but also to call out Democratic delegate David Englin, specifically, for emitting cock-blocking sex death rays straight from the Rachel Maddow Show.

PS Did you know that it is considered impolite for delegates to utter any derivative of the word “vagina,” even while disgorging the squishy minutia of their sex-making into the official record over a cassette-deck porn beat, UNLESS they are simultaneously working to restrict what women can do with their “V”s? Look it up! [YouTube via Wonkette commenter “UnholyMoses”]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Barb

    Did she only withhold transvaginal sex or was butt sex off the table too?

    • memzilla

      Let's check the incoming IP addresses to rentboy.com and find out!

    • littlebigdaddy

      Barb, thank you for upholding our precious Wonkette tradition of mentioning buttsechs.

      • Barb

        Live to serve!

        • bagofmice

          Hoorah!! Hoohah?

    • Chichikovovich

      No, butt sex was A-OK, as long as she was the one in back holding the probe.

      • http://whateveritisimagainstit.blogspot.com trampndirtdown

        Hooray for pegging!

        • OneDollarJuana

          So that's what that song "Peg o' My Heart" is about.

          • tessiee

            That's "Peg o' My Butt".
            "Peg o' My Heart" is about staking a vampire.

          • Chichikovovich

            "Peggy Sue" was about a girl who was really into pegging.

            Edit: And if you're inclined to doubt me on this, check out the lyric:

            If you knew, Peggy Sue,
            Then you'd know why I feel blue

          • Biff

            And Peggy Legg is another thing, entirely.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Lyrics aside, I find this amazing. Is it the weed, or is it as good as I think it is? Must listen again later. Thanks, Biffy.

          • Biff

            Terry Allen IS that good. It's on a CD named Human Remains, worth the search.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Nice work, Biffster. I put it on the iPod list. (Hugs the Biff) You're a good pal.

          • Biff

            I have excellent taste in music. Excellent taste. Excellent.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back there, Biffo. Just remember, if you become a neighbour I will shamelessly invite myself over to listen to your excellent music collection.

            ETA: Nah, I wouldn't do that to ya.

          • Biff

            That was my comparison to Rain Man, there.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            That's what you say *now.*

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

      Buttsechs is usually *under* the table, for these types.

      • OneDollarJuana

        Or under the bathroom stall divider.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

          Tap, tap, tap. Say, is this thing on?

          • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

            You've got an awfully wide stance there, frothy.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Hey, who you callin' … oh.

            Don't think I don't see what you did there.

            Santorum's all in a lather today because that ELITIST Barack dood wants everybody to go to college and stuff.The teatardz who turned out to hear him are all like Yay, No more homework EVAH! It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

          • FakaktaSouth

            It'd be funnier if these um, oh I don't know, I've called them so many things, what? Ig-nant mo-fos? I haven't said that today. It would be funnier if these ig-nant mo-fos weren't already messing every living thing up with all their stupid, stupid ways. If they stood in the corner and didn't get their stupid all over me it'd be different. But no, they gotta be assholes about it and try to do stuff that messes with my shit.
            We don't need no education my bee-hind.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Man, they're totally into stupid bukkake. It ain't stupid enough for them until they can get it all over the whole fucking country's face.

            It's a good thing I can't line the whole lot of them up for an ass-kicking, because I would totally need a new fucking leg by the time I was done. Just assholes. All of 'em.

          • FakaktaSouth

            Do you know, I absolutely learned what that bukkake even was from a wonketteers? (not in person, but 'virtually' if ya know what I mean…Don't tell ME we aren't all about the learning here. I don't get that shit at ALL – I'm such an immediate gratification girl I can't imagine being on the wrong end of a bukkake writhe fest with none for me, thanks – I mean WHAT?) but it IS the perfect metaphor for Republican policies. Spurt spurt.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            I have learned more from the Wonkettz about revolting sexual practices than I could possibly have imagined. But yeah, bukkake is all about punishing/humiliating a woman, not about sex.

            Which is a pretty good metaphor for what these motherfuckers are trying to do to the whole goddamn country. I hate them extra hatey-hatey today because I have a fucking headache. Maybe I should go out and weed the garden, after giving the weeds the names of each and every one of these idiot barfbags. Sorry, FakaktaSouth. Didn't mean to bukkake all over this comment.

      • Biff

        That's below the belt.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

          That was low, Biff.

    • doloras

      No, there was buttsechs ON the table.

      • RadioSBJ

        Yeah, with her and her strap-on ultrasound probe.

    • Negropolis

      I would sure hope that it's off the table, because it can be quite a dangerous event when performed on top of the table.

    • tessiee

      I like to think I'm a pretty open-minded person, but I do feel that butt sex should never be done ON the table.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

        Yeah, people EAT on it. Ew.

        • tessiee

          Lulz, now I'm picturing Tony Soprano dope-slapping A.J. and yelling, "EY!! Your mudder and I EAT offa dat table!"

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            OK, now the cat is giving me the stinkeye because you made me LOL and I woke him. (Fuck him, I didn't ask him to to steal my pillow.)

          • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

            (Insert pussy joke here)

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Ya t'ink I don't get dat alla time?

            One of my dearest friends who always had a houseful of cats before he finally decided he couldn't take the heartbreak of saying goodbye repeatedly had them all labeled in jars on his mantel after they passed. He would always say, I've had more pussy than any ten straight men.

            I've never owned a rooster, but I have had a cockatoo.

            Do you really? I have 2 birds.

          • tessiee

            No, it was a bad pun, the sort we English majors never tire of making.
            What I've actually had was a cock or two.

            Wut? I have no idea what you're talking about.

      Maybe they can use Veegemcee as a substitute for vagina?

    • Barrelhse

      Quite the moustache.

    • OzoneTom

      I'd hit it.

      • Biff

        Beat me by 20 hours, but yeah, so would I. A bit horse-faced, also ginger, but wtf…

        • RavenRant

          Once you go ginger, you'll become a binger.

          Cuz we so hawt.

          • HistoriCat

            Ginger – yummy …

    • yellojkt

      She could have done better.

    • Chichikovovich

      Come on now, you little scamps – Mrs. Albo has shown herself to have a scrap of sense and decency, which can't be easy to sustain when married to a douchenozzle like her rapist-by-proxy husband.

      So let's just focus on what a fat, ugly rapist-by-proxy dipshit husband she has and count her as one of the heros of this tale.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

        *This* is why, when they hold those elections for god? You got my vote.

        As I pointed out before, how plain or gorgeous Mrs. Albo is makes nobody no never mind, if she's the only person in the world who will fuck that jerk (and he's no fucking prize), and she's doing the principled Lysistrata number.

        If more women would stop sleeping with Repuglycunts, they wouldn't have to worry about these prix passing laws that treat them like chattel.

        • BigDumbRedDog

          Have to convince the little boys to stop sleeping with them too.

        • flamingpdog

          I'm sure they wouldn't mind the beatings they get for refusing sex.

            You know, it's tough to be a privacy-rights advocate while arguing for greater sanction against crimes against women and children.

      • OzoneTom

        Thanks for putting that in perspective. Obviously Rita Albo deserves our respect and thanks.

        But she's still way too good for the likes of him.

      • Gainsbourg69

        I meant no disrespect. I just wanted to put a face to the very decent Mrs. Albo.

        • Chichikovovich

          I'm the one who should be sorry – I realized your message was just factual and rhetorically neutral. I was jumping in to try to gently redirect people's snark rays. But I neglected to make clear that the message was intended as a comment on the way the thread was heading, not on your post.—

          • Gainsbourg69

            No worries.

        • hunnybee

          she is decent and thank you. you did not disrespect her
          at all.

    • littlebigdaddy

      Sadly, the boy looks exactly like his dad.

      • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

        She's given him a son and heir, so to some "minds" (probably his), she's fulfilled her most important wifely duty. I hope she now does her motherly duty and makes sure that kid doesn't ACT like his father.

        • Chichikovovich

          She's given him a son and heir, so to some "minds" (probably his), she's fulfilled her most important wifely duty.

          True. The Republicans are nothing if not heir-brained.

        I read yesterday that he's adopted.

    • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

      How old is that picture, 'cause he SURE doesn't look like that now!

    • tessiee

      OK, I don't think I'd put her on the cover of Vogue, but she's at least decently attractive in a generic, "nice lady who works at the dry cleaner's" sort of way, thereby making her several orders of magnitude too good for him.

      Also, I'm now fascinated by the name Chris "Chubby" Frederick that appears about one third of the way down the page — as in, exactly how fat does he (or she) have to be in order to be distinctive for fatness in Virginia?

  • WhatTheHeck

    Guess whose campaign this fuck face is working for?

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

      RMONEY?

      • Gainsbourg69

        Yup. In the last week three of his campaign workers have been all over the news.
        Babes, Grimm and now this idiot.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

          Lot of chatter on Twitter today about the Republicans dumping RMONEY. Some of it coming from Republican operatives. I wonder if it will happen.

          • HistoriCat

            Unless they're going to go all in for for Santorum or the Newtster, I seriously doubt it.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Srsly, they're calling Santo the only conservative candidate. Apparently, Newt's history of demonizing and pillorying Democrats in and out of Congress renders him insufficiently radical for these raving, rabid yobbos. Right now, Santorum is WAY ahead of the other two in Alabama. Yes. Mull that over for a few minutes. Santorum, the Catholic candidate from BLUE Northeastern PA is running double digits ahead of Good Ol' Boy Southerner Newton Leroy in fucking Alabama. I can't wait to hear the spin the talking heads will put on this one.

          • HistoriCat

            It's true – they are completely nuts.

          • tessiee

            'Mull that over for a few minutes. Santorum, the Catholic candidate from BLUE Northeastern PA is running double digits ahead of Good Ol' Boy Southerner Newton Leroy in fucking Alabama."

            They may not like Catlicks down south, but trust me, they eat up that handmaid's tale bullshit like it was cheese grits.

          • NYNYNYjr

            their choices are two catholics, a mormon and an anti-war dude. give the R's a break, it must seem like the world is upside down to most Alabamians.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            But Newton Leroy and RMONEY are offering pretty much the same cheesy grits. What makes this nutbag different from all other nutbags? The fact is Santorum is batshit insane, and the sooner he gets the nom, the better it is for Barack. But I can't help worrying about the country.

    Yes! Go, Mrs. Albo! If more women refused to put out when their men acted like dickheads this world would be a much better place.

    • OzoneTom

      Of course a lot of those men in GOP don't really want their women-beards to put out, as that would cause them to become physically sick and traumatized

          "Doesn't your man-on-dog deserve Albo?"

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

          I was going to say something about making poor dogs suffer, and then I realized, NO! Dogs would totally fuck anything they could, so they probably WOULD enjoy fucking the bejayzus out of Mr. Albo! And who could possibly deserve it more?

          Also, too: It deserves to be the only sex he will ever get again in his life, if he is writing bills requesting that women who have been raped by some people then be raped again by the government with instruments — surely there's something against that in the various human rights conventions and legislation that we have signed — and have such information entered permanently in their medical records simply because they wish to exercise autonomy over their own ladyparts.

    • Negropolis

      No. If I had a dog he or she would deserve so much better.

  • chascates

    Perhaps if these male malefactors were forced to undergo a digital prostate exam before being allowed to purchase condoms some consciousness raising would occur.

    And not by a medical doctor but whoever is selling the condoms. The drug store clerk, gas station attendant or what have you.

          All the time, really? Mine only used to achieve caltitude [= the maximum altitude of a cat's ass, according to science] when I was trying to read something.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            These guys seem to think that we're their actual biological parents, or something. They really do not get that whole "species difference" routine. Apparently, little felines have their Mom inspect their rear end every time they poop, and clean up any, uh, evidence. These guys do tend to get a bit carried away with it, though,despite repeated admonishment. I think I like cats because they're naturally anti-authoritarian. They really don't give a fuck what you think about having their ass in your face, if that's what they want to do, they're gonna do it anyway.

        • not that Dewey

          cat anus in the face

          Little Suzie, when one of the cats curls up on her, refers to the face/front paws of the cat as "the fun end". I GOT THE FUN END!

          I say, "if you have the fun end, what do I have?"

          THE BUTT AND LEGS!

          • user-of-owls

            Since my gata is of Christie-esque proportions, she has no ends to speak of so I always get the fun end.

            She's not fat; she's "thermodynamically optimal".

            Awww! That is SO cute! I do love your little girl, she is just a squeezable. The fun end, indeed! My favourite little girl used to love the kittehs when she was a young'un. I think it was pretty much the first thing she reacted to as a baby. We would schlep her around in her carseat and sometimes would leave her buckled in it at the table in the breakfast nook, and she would reach her little hand out and want to stroke their fur.

            Now she's all grown up, and all that stuff is way not cool enough for her. Enjoy li'l Suzie while you can, dood, they grow up all too fast.

What in the hell is WRONG wth these people? He doesn't even have the courage of his own convictions but he waves a vag probe around like a sceptor. Did you see the Dutch guy calling Rick out for being a liar too? Now you know what it feels like to live in Alabama. It's all, I swear to God he doesn't speak for all of us! We're not ALL morons just cause we live here, I swear! Barack must be a little pissed these guys aren't even gonna be a challenge. I mean, he is such a great debater, he must wish these asshats would get it together just a smidge so when he levels their playing field it ain't like he's kicking handicapped folks or something.

          I'm not saying I won't enjoy it, I'm just saying it sucks to be a kick ass debate guy and have to argue with people who are fine with whatever the Pope or Joseph Smith say.

          When I was a kid and went to see the Globetrotters, the local sports guy Herb Winches (great polyester sports guy name, no?) played with the Generals as a guest "star" for whatever reason (and the Globetrotters of course whooped that ass). Herb was a "family values guy" with ad contracts and a big Xtian mouth runner, making money with that whole bs routine going on – til he of course got busted in the hotel room with the coke and so forth. My point is, yeah, JUST like the Generals.

        • tessiee

ANYway, my hope is that this shit is all about to jump the vaginal probe as it were…as a member of the betwatted class, I'd like for the end result of all this bullshit with Virginia, the Catholics and the Rs to be – we get it, you're a man or an idiot, you're wielding your penis power and making laws that don't have shit to do with you and that you know very little about (state forced external ultrasounds at the "days" preggo rate is BRILLIANT!) You are doing things for political effect, not results, not for the good of anyone. This is why it is now annoying more than offensive to me and my lady parts at this juncture. More women were elected the year they crucified Anita Hilll than any other year before or since. Enough, it's boring, you lose. When it stops working, they'll stop doing it, just like any erstwhile opinion or fleeting thought Mitt Romney's ever had. I just hope they lose so bad this time even THEY figure it out.

            I think they gambled on this "social issues" plan thinking they would win. But because they're stuck in the previous century (I mean, the Young Republicans are in their FIFTIES?), they don't seem to realize that the world has changed A WHOLE FUCKING LOT in the past half-century. When I was young, gay people and women and brownz had no rights. Now, young people don't even get that there was a time when the groups that they might belong to didn't have rights. People in the 18-40 age demographic have a *very* different mindset than people in the 40+ demographic. Young conservative women are extremely turned off by the attack on the reproductive rights they have always had. It's backfiring on the GOP, and they're sending out their Mighty Wurlitzer to combat it by pushing the meme that the Democrats started the "social issues" fight. Rachel Maddow did a timeline of the issue. It's not looking good for the fuckers, and it serves them right.

            Those of us who might naturally not be included on the yacht that the one percenters are sailing — you know, the Poorz, Brownz, LGBTQs, Wimminz — the only fucking way we're going to get anything like rights is to stick together in this fight. And it's a long term fight. Look at these fuckholes. They're refighting (or trying to) issues we thought we had *settled* when *I* was a youngun nearly half a century ago! And we have to be ready to fight it over and over again until we beat it into their fucking heads, that we are NOT going back. They want to take us back to a world that only existed in their heads, one that had NO PLACE for any of us. We are not going back to the back of the bus, or the back of the line, or where the fuck EVER they have in mind to take us back to. THEY'RE welcome to go, if they want. But we're linking arms, and we're staying right here, and we're going to keep fighting this fight till it's won.

            Because we sure as fuck cannot afford that these monsters should ever win this battle and inflict upon our children and our world the horrors that you know they're contemplating.

      That's what the teabaggers really mean when they talk about the Founding Fathers and defending the original Constitution…

    • Negropolis

      As stated above, for an Individual to be a candidate for the office of president of the United States, the candidate must meet the qualifications set forth in the United States Constitution and one of those qualifications is that the Candidate shall be a “natural born citizen” of the United States. As Barack Hussein Obama II is of the “mulatto” race, his status of citizenship is founded upon the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of “Negro” or “mulatto” had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution.

      As the fourteenth amendment is only a grant of “civil rights” and not a grant of “political rights” Barack Hussein Obama II does not have and “political rights” under any provision of the United States Constitution to hold any Public Office of the United States government.

      Send in the blue helmets; I'm calling upon the enforcement of the Geneva Convention, 'cause logic is being tortured, here.

      This whole lawsuit and its filer can be sent to The Hague; no one will have lost any.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

        I'm sorry, dood. Everyone will have GAINED any.

      • Chichikovovich

        I agree in spirit, but I'll suggest a couple of friendly amendments. First of all, let's not send the guy to the Hague, since they are all civilized about capitol punishment and torture and stuff. The Kenyan Usurper should extraordinarily render this moron's ass to Saudi Arabia where he can taste what prison in a real oppressive authoritarian regime feels like. I mean, damn, what's the point of being a despot who has illegally seized power and rules with an iron fist, if you can't make open drooling idiocy punishable by disappearance and daily thrashings?

        And I wouldn't send the complaint to the Hague. Rather, all ten pages of it should be preserved under glass in the Smithsonian, as representing weapons-grade wingnut lunacy refined to its purest crystalline form. (Except that the spelling and grammar is better than I would have expected: only a handful of obvious mistakes. He must have asked the librarian at the law library to proofread it for him. But she did it while absent-mindedly talking on the phone so she missed some.)

        The obsessive repetition of "Barack Hussein Obama" is there. The mind-boggling racism with a mock-legal polish is there: Dred Scott viewed as properly decided and never actually overturned. The misuse of misunderstood legal terminology is there, for example the distinction between a "dicta case" and a "stare decisis" case, as if non-overturned cases could be classed as intrinsically "obiter dicta" in their entirety, rather than merely parts of a decision taken to be incidental to the main result. The official – sounding distinctions extracted from deep in the darkest reaches of his ass, treated as if they were accepted fundamental, defined and meaningful distinctions in Constitutional law are there, for example the distinction in the quote you extract, between "Civil Rights" and "Political Rights", with only the former said to be guaranteed by the fourteenth amendment. The head-scratch prompting allusions to other "burning legal issues" that are no doubt discussed constantly in wingnut posting boards and quite rightly unknown anywhere else, for example the parenthetical "[purported]" inserted in front of "ratification" [of the fourteenth amendment]. And this is just a hint of the museum-quality wingnut "thinking" on display.

        And of course the gross errors in logic are there, as you also note. My favorite was when he gives a one – paragraph quote from the decision in Minor v. Happersett (1874) that very clearly states (in paraphrase): "The question is whether this person is a citizen. Now sometimes there have been issues raised in this connection about people born in the US to only one citizen parent, but we have absolutely no need to resolve those disputes, because the case before us involves two citizen parents, and everybody agrees about that." In our hero's telling, this is transformed into "See! They say it has to be two citizen parents!"

        No, but he's a repeat birther who also wrote to the chief justice (including his family crest) – and has the balls to admonish the chief justice:

        There are rumors that the Clerk of the U.S. Supreme Court intercepts personal mail that is addressed to individual Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Hopefully this rumor is not true for any Public Employee obstructing the Mails of the United States commits a Criminal Act. This letter is not the business of the United States Supreme Court and as such, it is not the concern of the U.S. Supreme Court Clerk. As this rumor widely exist, please acknowledge the receipt of this letter.

      • Fukui-sanYesOta

        He's also one of these fucking morons who believe that your name written in ALL CAPS is some kind of legal strawman which allows the government to borrow in your name and therefore you're not liable for any debts.

        Example here

        Your common-or-garden insane nutjob.

        A result of the federal bankruptcy was the creation of the "UNITED STATES," which was made a part of the legal reorganization. The name of each STATE was also converted to its respective, all-caps legal person, e.g. STATE OF DELAWARE. These new legal persons were then used to create more legal persons, such as corporations, with all-capital letters names, as well. Once this was accomplished, the con began to pick up speed. All areas of government and all alleged "courts of law," are de facto, "color of law and right" institutions. The "CIRCUIT COURT OF WAYNE COUNTY" and the "U.S. DISTRICT COURT" can recognize and deal only with other legal persons. This is why a lawful name is never entered in their records. The all-caps legal person is used instead. Jurisdiction in such sham courts covers only other artificial persons.

        The proper jurisdiction for a lawful being is a Constitutionally sanctioned, common-law-venue court. Unfortunately, such jurisdiction was "shelved" in 1938 and is no longer available. The only courts today are statutory commercial tribunals collecting tribute (plunder) from the alleged Creditors who think they have conquered the country on their way to ruling the world.

    I've been trying to figure out why they are laughing so riotously, and I think I got it: when you fuck up so utterly, so completely, as a legislative body, and you finally get that you have, what else are you going to do? This is the very definition of nervous laughter.

    Do they finally realize that they morally collapsed so thoroughly that even hell won't have them; that even the prince of air winced; that even the ghost of Bob Novak is telling them to "back the fuck up"? Could this be the tea party's Rick Perry "oops" moment?

    You know, I don't usually read too many comments on articles, but I checked a full page of comments on a story about this on Yahoo. Even the baggers are saying "too far." Every. single. comment.

    So, enjoy your laugh while you can, because, maybe, America's just not that in to you, anymore. Maybe, they've come to realize that you're the type that will kill their pet rabbit and make it into stew than for no other reason than that you can.

    Meanwhile, across the river and in a large part of America, the nation is trying to get on with the rest of its life the best it can having to live next to this riff raff. Across the river they are working on letting people live honest and open and dignified lives, and not only not sticking unwarranted stuff in other humans, but getting out of the bedroom, entirely. Across the river, life is moving on, and tomorrow will come, and when it does, it'll be just that much better.

        One of my favorite bits from Bill Cosby because my parents would say almost the same things to me:

        • tessiee

          Can't remember where I read this, but when the author was a kid, his mother was on his case to do… something or other… that he didn't feel like doing; and she said, "Do I ever ask you for anything?"
          The kid said, "Yes, of course. You ask me for things *all the time*."

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

        Someone actually comes in to the office and tells stories about their sex life? That's totally a sexual harassment case in the making, dood.

        Our Corporate Overlords put us through a three-day training hell to make it clear to us that NOTHING about our personal lives was EVER to be discussed in the workplace. EVER. Telling someone your kid was sick might be OK if it was your immediate supervisor/dept head or HR, but telling anyone outside that chain of command was considered "inappropriate use of company time." Telling someone your wife wouldn't schtup you? They'd send two guys with boxes to your desk and walk you off campus within the hour.

        • tessiee

          The assmarmot in question was a divorced man in his 40s who drove a corvette, so he could pick up high school girls. The story wasn't a sex story per se, it was about how he had rolled over his car the past weekend, and walked away without a scratch. The take-away he got from this was not that he was incredibly lucky, or that god protects fools, but that rolling your car over was no big deal.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            I presume he has since lost his job, or his life. Geez. People like that don't last long in a job unless they're the tech genius in the company.

            OTOH, WTF do I know, I once worked with a guy I shall only refer to as SkunkMan (he had LONG black hair with short white edges) who had degrees in CS and chemistry and had published a shitload and held patents of various kinds and still taught and flew his own plane, and was the most obnoxious lecher I ever met. Fortunately, he saved his lechery for women of Eastern European extraction with significant mileage on them, if not their boobs.

          • tessiee

            How gross was this porker with the corvette?
            He was cheating on his wife with a married co-worker, AND cheating on the co-worker with her 17 year old daughter.

  • OneDollarJuana

    My proposal is to require a body cavity search when applying for concealed-carry permit, or purchasing any firearm. It is already illegal to do so if you are a felon, intoxicated, or engaged in criminal activity. So it's not unreasonable to require an aggressive body cavity search just to make sure the applicant is not carrying illegal drugs.

    • Chichikovovich

      That is a truly great idea! Every time one of these abortion-obstacle bills comes up, this should be proposed as an amendment. Also we should make anyone wanting to buy a gun watch a 3 hour video of people with parts of their bodies blown off, parents weeping at the funerals of their children who have died in gun accidents or as victims of intentional shootings, etc. We want to make sure that people buying guns have "all the available information" to give "informed consent" to having a gun around the house.

      People would be required to attend a full screening of the video for each gun they want to purchase. Now of course, we would be reasonable: people would be allowed to look away from the screen and put fingers in their ears if they chose.

          There's a play by Aristophanes (the guy who also wrote Lysistrata) called "the Birds", where the birds plan to team up with the humans for world domination.
          Bird 1: But why would the humans want to team up with us?
          Bird 2: Maybe we have something they want?
          Bird 3: As far as I can tell, all the humans care about is money.
          Bird 2: So, we advise them on their investments.
          Bird 1: But what do we know about investments?

        Santorum has brought in VERY LITTLE MONEY. TPM has a chart showing how much each candidate has raised from individualand corp. donors.

Sooner or later the lack of funds will surely force him from the race.

        And Karen Santorum really needs to wash her hair. I have never seen such a greasy-looking woman on a public stage. Can't someone get her a decent haircut-and-wash and some clothes in her size?

  • swordfis

    Contrarian opinion: Yes, this guy is a dick by definition, but his ironically self-deprecating presentation (he knows what he looks like, after all) puts him a large number of notches about the other Vaginal Probers for Probity. Can you imagine Santorum doing this? (I assume you are cringing already.)

    • Chichikovovich

      I think that makes him worse. The cutesy-pie "I was a baaaad wittow boy, you caught me wif my hand in the cookie jar" levity suggests someone who gets out of jams by using this faux-self-depreciation as a tactic, rather than admitting fault. And, though he's playing it for (ahem) laughs, he's blaming the demise of the bill on two people:

      a) an opponent of the bill having the poor taste to actually talk on TV about what the bill actually meant. The clear suggestion is that he presented things in a way that those emotional women would just get carried away and not see how rational the men were being.

      b) "The Old Ball and Chain – you know, you can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em, know what I'm saying people? – oh, yeah – this guy up front knows what I'm talkin' about – amirite? What's your name — Bill? OK, people let's have a big hand for Bill, he gets it! [scattered applause] Now last night, I was settling in with She Who Must Be Obeyed – there you go, Bill's laughing again – what did I tell ya? He's been there – So I was settling in with She Who Must Be Obeyed – and I mean "settling in" [exaggerated meaningful look to audience] – that's right, the settling in kind of settling in, knowwhatimsaying, and then she's all "do know know what you're forcing women to do with this bill?" — no, not you, Bill, the law-type bill – and then she's all "I am so angry at you, I don't want you to touch me tonight." Now I'm not saying she gets emotional, but I put on a bullet proof vest when I hear that tone. But you know me – dutiful husband – so I troop down to the guest room for the night. And that's why I'm here today [Makes cute baby face – Audience: Aaaawwwww.]….

      Given the choice I'll take a straight-up theocrat like Santorum any time, over someone who wants the same goals, and will work equally assiduously to achieve them, but masks it with lame, responsibility denying frat-nerd humor.

        I had an ex who used to do this when he fucked up, as if he were asking me for *permission to be naughty*. In certain very limited private settings, that can be a turn-on, but outside the bedroom, it gets really old, really fast.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            I've enjoyed reading the analysis and comments, but now must put in my two cents. You are correct, I believe. What this person ^^ is saying is not one whit less offensive than what Rick Santorum has been saying. The presentation is designed to reduce the perception of the offensiveness by invoking all those "in-group" social cues that we know so well. The sharing of laughter (that is aimed at reinforcing the perception that the group IS an in-group, that these powerful men who are making these decisions that will affect other people are all in the same boat, and correct about their decisions, etc.), the invoking of the underlying assumptions that then pass unquestioned into the bases of the discussion (women are emotional; they manipulate men by withholding sex; they are incapable of deciding what is to be done about the V-word).

            I b'leev I'll share a glass of said beverage, we're out of plonk in the old homestead.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            Oh, yes, and in my opinion, the Albos of the world are *worse* than the Santorums. The Santorums are crazy and telegraph it from a sufficient distance that you cannot mistake them for nonhostiles. The Albos, with their hail-fellow-well-met cheer and backslappings, their iPod with their very own bow-chicka-wow-wow seduction music — these people are just as sociopathic as those people, but they disguise it better, and people get fooled by the disguise.

            Let us never forget that we are talking about a man, and a group of his fellows, who decided it would be a good idea to have the government re-enact rape upon victims of said rape, while denying those same services to pregnant women who *want* ultrasounds to determine the health of their fetus.

          • Doktor Zoom

            I respect you greatly, Chichikovovich, but I must express a niggling doubt on one small matter: The chances that this twit would use a Rumpole of the Bailey reference are vanishingly small.

            True to the extent that they guy is not really Rumpole-watcher material, and most of the Rumpole stuff is either too subtle or obvious but too genteel for such members of the Cloddish-American community.

            But unlike most Rumpolania, "She Who Must Be Obeyed", seems to have slipped into circulation – I've heard it on the pre-teen oriented TV shows my daughter watches, for example.

          You don't know the ex. We all used to joke about her Patented Laser Death Glare. When Faridah Peeplez was still alive, and after Madame De Farge and I split up, Faridah got very cavalier about climbing on the dining table all uninvited. Since my idea of "disciplining" animals (and children) involves using extreme sarcasm, to which cats are unfortunately immune, she pretty much owned the fucking thing after a few weeks.

          Well, Madame came home for a visit after a year or two. Faridah was on the table and I was running around getting every last benighted speck of dust vacuumed up, since Madame has very high standards, to which she demands the rest of the world conform. Faridah saw her coming up the stairs some 30 feet away, leapt off the table, shot out of the house and refused to come back down the hill until Madame left, a day later. Madame thinks this is hilariously funny, although the furthest concession she made to actually experiencing this emotion was a small curl of the lip.

          I do love my ex, I always will, but she is one hell of an intimidating woman.

      That's a great article – thanks. Bunch of stuff it makes me want to talk about, but I can't spend all day paying my tributes to the classical gods and goddesses of snark. Actual work to do.

      But I couldn't let slip Paul's remark about post WW II, which I hadn't heard. {I know Paul is no hawk, and so this remark applies more to the other people on stage presumably nodding and the people applauding than it does to him}:

      "You know what the government did? They cut the budget by 60 percent. And everybody went back to work again, you didn't need any special programs.

      Obviously this is dumb along an enormous number of linearly independent dimensions (for example the ignoring of the GI Bill, VA health care, etc. that Taibbi notes.) But the sheer unreality of that number. Yes, they cut the budget by 60 percent. But it was not because Truman was some kind of Thatcherite. They had been running a war that had mobilized, in one way or other, virtually the entire country, and which had lasted (the US part in it, that is) three years. And you know what it tells you that the budget was cut that much? It tells you that wars are f**king expensive! That is what it tells you.

      And unless the Republicans are planning to slash the military budget by an amount comparable to the cuts post-WW II [I joke, da, da. You know how Chichikovovich he is devil with the jokes] the spending cuts have nothing to do with anything.

      God, it's like trying to bail a leaky boat with a thimble. Whatever zombie falsehood you may get out of the vessel is replaced tenfold before you can make another pass.

      Basically, they've spent so much time bulshitting themselves that all problems are caused by brown people or liberals or not-devout-enough Christians, that people are starting to say "mmm, I was going along with that for a few decades, but now… Where's your proof?" Conservatives, it's time to face facts: you're part of the problem, especially the people you elect to office.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

        Since you're so game, old chum, and willing to be called "Dood" in public, yet, I think I should give you an explanation of the origins of "dood." Warning: it's boring. Honest.

        See, in many North Indian languages, "doodh" is the word for "milk." As you probably already know, most Norteamericanos have difficulty with the soft dental d, which doesn't exist in the English language, and the *aspirated* dental h, well, we won't even go into that. The little Indian-born scalawags in language classes had the best time in the world making up sentences that included the word "doodh" just to torment their American-born compatriots who couldn't help "dood"-ing every time.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            HAHAHA! Sorry to do this to ya, Chet, but aforesaid Indian language classes were taking place here in the USA. You don't think little Indian-born Indian kids go to classes to learn their OWN language, do ya? No, this was to teach the little American-born kids their native tongue and the little Indian kids got dragged in there because their parents were terrified that they would forget how to speak to the grandparents and other relatives.

            I grew up speaking five languages, at least two of which are Indian languages, and one, obviously, is English. I know that doesn't make it any easier for you, dood, but think of it this way: We're BOTH having so much fun! Oh, and I learned to speak and write English mainly from books, since, in my native land, we speak a creole that most native English speakers are hard put indeed to understand. Just about the first thing native speakers say to me (which really makes me want to slap the shit out of them) is, "You speak English SO WELL." As if it were any kind of effort. I'd like to see them speak any Asian language as well as I speak English. (No, not you fuckers here at Wonketz who seem to speak every known language under the sun. And yes, I'm looking at you, User-of-Owls.)

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

            This IS fun, isn't it? I have a whole slew of books on the Indians in the West Indies. So many of them have intermarried with the native people and with those of African descent who were brought there. But if you ask your Fijian or Trinidadian Indian friends if they have African relatives, they will deny it. Even while showing you family pictures that include some DEFINITELY African-looking relatives.

            I have lots of relatives who could pass for Chinese or European, and many many dark-skinned rellies. But no, not the Caribbean.

    • LetUsBray

    • Negropolis

      The problem with this being seen as a victory for us is that it was so far too the right, than even the "compromise" isn't really a compromise. We're still getting medically unnecessary ultrasounds out of this, the only difference is that they've cut out the most invasive part. This is still very much an extreme law, one that may be par for the course in the anti-abortion movement, but one that is still scary.

      He may have did a complete 180 on a particular procedure in the bill, but it's still a net gain for the crazies. This may not be a three pointer, but it's still at least a free throw. I guess this is what you get with a governor, though, that told you he hated women. His college papers weren't a secret.

      • Gainsbourg69

        I see this as only a temporary victory for the crazies. For one thing, the amount of outrage this bill caused will discourage republicans in moderate states from adopting measures as insane as these and it may also encourage the democratic party to fight back on an issue which they've always thought was a loser for them. Further, McDonell is pretty much done as far as national politics are concerned. This is a huge blow for the republicans since he is right up there with Marco Rubio as one of their movement's rising stars and their bench continues to get thinner by the week.

        • RadioSBJ

          Well, what's highly unusual about the Virgin state is that it has Northern
          Virginia to deal with. A highly educated, affluent, multi-cultural force that pays a largely disproportionate share of the revenues for the state. Throw in Richmond and the Tidewater region and the hicks and teabaggers are always a simple majority away from being put in their place.

            I'm well familiar with northern Virginia. I visit friends there often.

        • Negropolis

          Politically, that may be the case, but policy-wise, we still lose. This stuff doesn't ever get overturned, even when we get elected. So, Dems may benefit from its, politically, but we the people don't ever benefit from social policy reversals. I'm very close to the point of being tired of winning the battle, but forever losing the war.

          What good is it for Dems to "win" on this issue, if women as still having to get unnecessary ultrasounds even when they are in office? Same thing on gun restrictions. Republicans come in an loosen them, Dems run against the loosening restrictions, win, and then nothing happens. We could go on and on and on on a whole host of issues.

          This isn't to pretend that the GOP isn't bat-shit crazy, but I don't see how the other side always winning 2/3 of an argument, while we're constantly left defending a third can be considered progress. We're not even able to draw them to a tie on a lot of things.

          • Gainsbourg69

            It's too early to say that this will not be overturned, isn't it? Personally, I remain optimistic.

          • Negropolis

            No, it really isn't too early. Tell me of aanother state that has repealed pre-abortion ultrasounds. Honestly, name me one. I'm really not sure why you're trying so hard. I'm just talking empirical evidence, here.

            There is optimism, and then there is willful delusion.

      • RadioSBJ

        N, I think you could easily extrapolate your argument to the whole political scene of the last 25-30 years. The political discourse in this country has been pushed so far to the right , that any "progressive" thought is a pathetic, embarrassing compromise.
        1. A 3-4% marginal tax rate on the rich? i.e. getting rid of the Bush/Obama tax cuts, instead becomes a petty bribe with this payroll tax cut crap that comes out of Social Security.
        2. Obamacare, fuck that. It pushes us farther away from a single payer system, it only adds more bureaucracy to the system, and entrenches the health insurance AND health care systems. There is a reason that we pay three times what Canada pays for our mediocre results, and this piss poor compromise does nothing to improve that.
        3. Defense. The budget is double what it was in 2000, and Obama makes a modest cut, and, of course, he is hollowing out the military, and weak on defense and blah, blah, blah. All the while the whole thing is never seen for what it is: SOCIALISM.

    OT: Anyone want to take bets on how many new jaw-dropping revelations will come out about Sen. Mix this weekend? He hit the jackpot on Friday:

    1. No one should send their kids to college, or even contribute to secular higher ed, because it's where the young are forced to lose their faith. (Just for the record, I lost mine in sixth grade and I went to a rather conservative school.)

    2. The Dutch are euthanizing 10% of their elderly, and half of the 10% didn't want to die. (Love the touch about the "don't kill me bracelets.")

    3. Mrs. Frothy told Glenn Beck that the passage of "Obamacare" was what inspired her to join Rick in his quest for the presidency. "Because we have as you know a little angel, little Bella, special needs little girl, and when Obamacare passed, that was it, that put the fire in my belly.” As if her idea that "Obamacare" will endanger little Bella wasn't enough, Rick just had to chime in with the charge that the health care law is designed to ration care based on the "usefulness" of an individual. Their comments were so outrageous even Forbes magazine published an opinion piece refuting the statements. http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/02/25/

    4. His campaign is sponsoring a "Rick Santorum for President 2012" car, to be driven by Tony Raines in the Daytona 500.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

        My late mother lived in a country with socialized medicine (a mix of government- and private- health insurance, with the government setting basic rates for medical services of the most-utilized types, e.g., well-baby care, prenatal care, regular screenings, etc. Her last illness was a flu-type respiratory ailment that was exacerbated by the fact that multiple small strokes had caused her to lose all mobility (this is what kills the elderly and bedridden, most often: pneumonia as a result of aspirating food/liquid). They sent her to the nearest geriatric hospital (there are several that specialize in geriatric care, as befits an aging population) the minute she registered a rise in temperature and evidence of an illness. The doctors put her in a private room, hooked up to the most modern equipment money can buy. They cured her in a week, but decided to hold her for an additional week, to be SURE that she wouldn't face problems as a result of a lengthy period of immobility (enrolled her in physical therapy, had her exercised against her will, etc.). She died peacefully in her sleep after polishing off a very impressive breakfast. The bill ran into six figures, and when it arrived I just about died right where I was standing, trying to figure out how I was going to pay it. Then I got to the last page. It stated: Paid by insurance: (entire amount).

        I am so grateful to socialized medicine for taking care of my mother her entire life and not costing me a single penny for the amazing care they gave her.

            My partner brought it home from his trip to DC in early Feb. He went to a showing of "Albert Nobbs" in a theater where half the people attending were coughing up pieces of their lungs.
            But it seems to be going around in our neighborhood. I usually visit my favorite corner market everyday. Two different girls working this weekend were coughing their heads off.
            It's not the flu, though. No fever & I haven't felt achy. Just a nasty cold. I usually get one every winter but this one is the nastiest I've had in awhile.
            Can you believe that I've never had the flu? I joke that it's thanks to my freaky genes. Never even caught it as a kid when my dad got it & nearly died (he was so sick that I had to go out, in over a foot of snow, to feed the animals because he couldn't–my father was someone who worked no matter what, so if he couldn't do it, you knew he was seriously sick).

            You know the best way to deal with this (you should, you're a scientist). Start with the blandest diet you can think of – plain boiled or steamed white rice and boiled or grilled chicken thigh. Eat that for three or four days and then SLOWLY begin adding things to this basic recipe. No frying, no fried foods, no additives whatsoever. Add things back one at a time, and give each new item added two or three days before adding the next.

            Sooner or later, this elementary sleuthing will discover whatever's ailing ya.

            Thanks for the concern, (gulp) Frothy. Trust me, I've been doing this off and on for years. Mainly the issue is anxiety. Paxil (for depression/anxiety) is the best thing I've ever taken for my intestinal tract ails.

            Aww! (Don't worry, sweetie, being loved by gay people won't turn you gay.) What can we do about your anxiety, sweetie? Have you tried yoga/meditation/all-that-New-Agey-shit? I'm as cynical as they come, but there's plenty of hard evidence in favour of those. Also you might want to consider acupressure/massage. I'm sure you could do with a massage. And I bet there's some pretty ladies out there who would be happy to, um, help. Eh?

    OT: Oh, yes:

    Washington— The United Auto Workers will fly a banner over the Daytona 500 NASCAR race on Sunday, reminding voters of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's opposition to the auto bailout.

    The Detroit-based union will pay to fly a plane and banner from 10:30-11:30 a.m. that will read "Mitt Romney: Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" — a reference to a headline on a November 2008 New York Times op-ed that Romney wrote opposing a U.S. bailout of General Motors and Chrysler. The union also protested Romney's appearance on Friday at Ford Field in Detroit.

    In the Daytona 500, 31 of 43 cars racing are made by one of Detroit's Big Three automakers.

    GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who has criticized Romney for supporting the Wall Street bailout but opposing the auto bailout, is sponsoring a car at the race — Front Row Motorsports Car #26, a Ford Fusion driven by Tony Raines.

    Tone deaf bastard is tone deaf.

    You know, I can't wait until spring comes and the Occupy camps are born, anew. Romney has not even seen the beginning of this, yet. I can tell you that in my city, the Occupiers have simply been hibernating having vowed to return when the weather gets better. The UAW is also planning a very active spring when they will formally join with Occupy…

    • Chichikovovich

      American and other NATO soldiers are distributed throughout that country, in some parts thinly distributed. The country has a long history of making life unpleasant for occupiers – witness the last super-power that decided to vacation there. Since American troops are nominally allied with Afghan government forces, they are constantly exposed to people who would be in a good position to kill them if they chose to. The populace is armed to the teeth. The opponents have religious ties to our nominal "allies" and to the unaligned parts of the population, if there are any at this point, while we do not. They border a large, militant country with whom they have had chilly relations because they practice different brands of Islam, but these are differences that could be transcended if Islam itself were perceived to be under attack. There are also many western aid workers in the country. If a sequence of events that started small were to be fanned and grow out of control, with the result that a huge majority of the population, (including many of the Afghan policemen and soldiers officially on "our side") were to rise up aggressively against the US and NATO, the immediate loss of life to us and our allies – both civilian and military – would be immense, whether or not our firepower would allow us to "win" in the end.

      It's reassuring to know that in these circumstances, a President Romney's or a President Santorum's official response would be: "Look, I said it was a goddamned accident! If you can't accept that, go fuck yourself, moon-god worshipers."

    Man's wife refuses to sleep with him because he ordered a mass rape; is that so surprising? I guess I suppose it's surprising that it's happening now, rather than in 1940's Germany.

    (PS – For all those 'is rape a bad metaphor?' people; where I come from non-consensual vaginal penetration is rape under the law. So I'm talking literally here).

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

      When you hear some ancient doddering godbag whining on about how he is being "spiritually raped" by being forced to permit abortions for the filthy sluts who lost the aspirins between their knees, then you realize that the rape metaphor has already been raped and sodomized to death by these morons. And, as you so aptly point out, this is actual, literal rape we're discussing here: the penetration of a woman's vagina without her consent and against her will. I can't wait to hear how the inability to actually physically rape these poor women a second time somehow constitutes spiritual rape upon the men attempting to force this pain and humiliation upon them.

      These men must never have known any women. Because EVERY SINGLE WOMAN that I know has some kind of story about rape, attempted rape, molestation, sexual assault, groping, or sexual harrassment. Now, it's quite possible that the group of women I know are not typical or representative at all, having been selected without an eye to actual statistical sampling and study. But I've read enough stats about rape from the DoJ and the domestic violence prevention organizations I've worked with to know that it is not an insignificant problem and very severely underreported.

  • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

    Yowza! Former Sen. Frothy Mix did not disappoint me. Here he is on ABC this morning:

    "I don't believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute," [Santorum] told 'This Week' host George Stephanopoulos. "The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country…to say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes me want to throw up."

        It leaves unanswerable such questions. We will never know the exact boundary of cynicism/ignorance which these fuckers straddle. From a purely pragmatic, results-oriented perspective, these fuckin Republican candidates sure know how to manipulate the "journalists".

Journalism (well, and advertising, too) is a far more pressing problem than politics. Politics is as it ever was.

      Suck on this, Santorum:

      "Faced with the election of a Catholic," Peale declared, "our culture is at stake."[7] In a written manifesto Peale and his group also declared JFK would serve the interests of the Catholic church before the interests of the United States: "It is inconceivable that a Roman Catholic president would not be under extreme pressure by the hierarchy of his church to accede to its policies with respect to foreign interests," and that the election of a Catholic might even end free speech in America.

      I think I found this article on my Google Reader last night, so not just reprinting another Wonketeer's link….:

      Christian Dominionists and Foster Friess.
      According to Papantonio, the Republicans' appeal to the dominionists is their last straw because other methods did not work. "They're back to their Ralph Reed, Lee Atwater fundamentalist standby and it's this — it is 'we're more holy than the Democrats. We're more holy than Obama. And Santorum, Ed, has become their pitchman."

      Foster Friess who recently made the "aspirin as a form of contraceptive" remark and is a major backer of Santorum is, according to Papantonio, "is a freak" whose message is "We're holier than you. Public schools are failing institutions so children are better off home schooled where they don't have to talk about things like evolution and global climate change or racism. It's where every part of the bible can be taught in school except the Sermon on the Mount or the Beatitudes where we teach people how to treat people. It's called dominion religion, Ed, you're going to start seeing it a lot more, they use it to exploit everything that brings out the worst of Christianity."

      Referring to Santorum's remarks that Obama's environmental policies are part of a "theology that's not biblical," Papantonio observed, "If you think about what Santorum is saying right now, about Obama being the wrong kind of Christian, he's saying that under dominion religion, we can use and we can exploit everything on earth because the Apocalypse is coming." http://bit.ly/wCHbpn

    Also OT: There's a new email from OfA going around, asking us delinquent 2008 supporters why we haven't donated again yet in 2012. I have actually written to them many times, offering my unsolicited reasons why I haven't given yet (Bradley Manning, unprosecuted banksters, drones, war crimes, lack of Keynesianism, etc, although I still consider myself a "supporter"), but they never responded. Until now.

    This is an opportunity for us to do something constructive with our frustration, now that they are asking why we are not donating.

    Dear [redacted] —

    As you may have noticed, we've asked you for a donation a few times now.

    But according to our records, you haven't yet made an online donation to this
    campaign at this email address. (If our records are wrong, I apologize and thank
    you!)

    I'm not writing to ask you for money again. I'm actually writing to ask your opinion about why you haven't given, and what you think would inspire you or other Obama supporters like you to decide to take the leap and donate.

    We have two quick questions for you. Can you take a minute to answer
    them?
    http://my.barackobama.com/Your-Support-In-2012h

    There's a good reason we're asking for your feedback: The kind of organization we all decided to be a part of only works if people like you pitch in to build it.

    It's also the reason no other candidate has been able to match our level of grassroots support. This isn't the easiest way to run a campaign — but we know it's the right way.

          To put some things into perspective. Here is what each of these two candidates have raised since the beginning of their campaigns:

          Obama: $151.4 million
          Romney: $64 million

          The president probably won't raise what he raised in 2008. At least, not directly. But, I really don't get all of the hand-wringing. Even when Romney is in a one-on-one, he's not going to catch up in the (direct) money race. He's going to have to have the superPACs just to give him a fighting chance.
