"My oldest daughter takes a shining to my Sig Sauer .380 automatic..." Automatic? Say it ain't so, Doug. LOL. That's a mistake I never thought you'd make.
"About publicly sharing your body, having to prove yourself in a meeting full of 50 year old men..." Not sure what Miss Dunham means by "publicly sharing [her] body" -- is she referring to exhibitionism? -- but that seems a far cry from "having to prove yourself in a meeting full of 50 year old men." That's something sales people, advocates, and account executives do every day. Pretty unremarkable. And why the drive-by reference to sex and age? Rather than employing innuendo, she would have been better served by a direct assertion. Miss Dunham will not be appearing in our church.
Condescension (or even misplaced pity) can create shame in its target, but since shame is a very painful emotion, most people turn it into anger, which feels powerful. Is it any wonder we have a stratum in our society that sees little need to compete and would rather demand free stuff to which they feel entitled. It's a toxic formula destined to destroy our country.
"However, some parents prohibit all guns as toys..." So if "some parents" prohibit figurines of black people, would they be removed? How about Minnie Mouse, clearly an offense to feminists?

I wonder: does Davidson College block campus cable access to Turner Classic Movies when it runs "The Gay Divorcée," that wonderful Academy Award-winning film from 1934 with Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire?

Being an energetic conservative who's always up for one of Mike's challenges, I actually clicked on that link he included in his lede. Unfortunately, it led nowhere ("page not available"). But being a resourceful conservative, I just typed the URL into my browser and voilà! Now excuse me for a moment while I go back to clinging to my God and my guns.
Cogent and persuasive presentation. What a shame a solid, sane, personable conservative didn't emerge and rise to the top this time around. I think the best of the lot concluded they wanted to wait for 2016, miscalculating that there would still be a recoverable republic after eight years of Obama. The Republicans missed a golden opportunity, but we'll have to make do with Romney as a workable place-holder. Presumably, at the very least, we won't get another couple of Leftists on the SCOTUS and the worst of the budget bloodletting will be stemmed. We need to hold the House and get a conservative majority in the Senate, and pray that Romney picks right-thinking men and women to staff the Executive branch.
