Wow! Eight exclamation points and four words in all-caps. She must really know what she's talking about.
Wasn't it Jack Nicholson's character, Melvin Udall, in "As Good as It Gets," who said, in response to how did he understand women as well as he did: "I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability." That seems to be what feminists are saying: Men need to act reasonably and take accountability, but women are incapable of either.
I teach at a university and I would be very interested in you giving me directions to the place where I can find all these "thoughtful, educated young people." They listen to "The Daily Show" as if it were news and will accept a dozen hate-filled snarks (like your "Little Man Kurt" reference) before they will analyze even the most blatant data-based contradictions between Washington-speak and reality.
Item 1: Akin was not a first-time politician, so not being ready for the inevitable leftist media question and answering it the way he did indicates he's too stupid to serve competently in the Senate. We're already above quota on Senate nincompoops, no matter their ideological purity. Item 2: It quickly became obvious Akin could not win, but several other Missouri Republicans had an excellent chance against the unpopular Democrat incumbent. Akin had ample time to withdraw from the race and let a viable candidate take his place, yet he refused to do so. This indicates he is just one more politician who places himself above the good of the country. We're already full up on that type of Senator, also.

Modern Feminism: A Teenage Boy’s Dream

What Mr. Hunter "doesn't understand," as the teenage girl alleges, is that it takes hard work and time to do something noteworthy in normal society. When sexual promiscuity is equated with feminine empowerment it is now within the reach of anyone, especially clueless high school girls.
I don't believe there is a loophole -- the Constitution is explicit, not that that ever matters to Democrats. I think this (strategy) is what happens when your team is heavily invested in recreational drug use. The 97-0 vote on Kyoto told them where they stand, they're trying to come up with some story to tell themselves (and at fundraisers) that avoids the hard truth that they're total losers.

There may be differences in culture between Salt Lake City, UT, and Ferguson, MO. In Salt Lake City they may feel looting stores, destroying private property, and assaulting innocent bystanders is not a valid form of political protest.

I think most Obama voters felt the same way: Finance and economics are just so boring -- oh, look, a squirrel -- I think I'll just vote for hope and change.

If not one single Democrat senator would vote to impeach Clinton, what possible chance do you think you're going to have removing "The First Black President" from office with the evidence we now have? Perhaps Palin is being paid under the counter to give the Democrats a rallying point.

Branch Rickey was wise in hiring a black player of indisputable talent (Jackie Robinson). When a player of marginal talent proclaims they are breaking some barrier, you can bet that talent will have little to do with the course of his or her career.
Like many papers, the St. Louis PD will often deliver stacks of papers to college campuses, free for the taking, and at the end of the day the stacks aren't even half gone: A paper of such quality you can't even give it away.
