Left-Wing Rags Jump The Shark

In a race to see which publication can garner the fewest readers and, in so winning the contest, go out of business, Time and Newsweek have descended into the world of pulp fiction.

First Time came out with this issue last week, showing a self-absorbed mother subjecting her son to a life of ridicule and torment by forcing him to pose for the cover with his lips attached to her breast:


Now Newsweek, not to be left behind in the race to bankruptcy, has done this:


It's just a matter of time before one or the other goes full-pulp and starts slinging this:


So you know, Spicy Detective went out of business too.

Where once great literary and journalistic minds produced works worthy of the name journal, now they do comics.

It's sad, in a way, to watch the slow - embarrassing -  demise of both publications.

Take a Pill, Sweetheart

I've paid absolutely no attention to Mitt Romney's wife and know little about her life story.  But maybe I should be watching her.  If what has this liberal idiot's thong in a bunch is even half-way true:
MSNBC Guest Calls Ann Romney 'Insufferable', Her Mother's Day Op-Ed 'Creepy'
By Mark Finkelstein, NewsBusters

Snark on, Michelle! On the MSNBC show "Up With Chris Hayes" this morning, feminist author Michelle Goldberg attacked Ann Romney as "insufferable" and derided a phrase in Ann's op-ed on the subject of motherhood as "creepy."

Goldberg's "insufferable" shot drew approving laughter from the all-feminist panel. And surely the attacks on the Romneys for their traditional family values will play well with a certain segment of the electorate. The problem for President Obama: that segment is one that is already almost entirely in his camp. But these sort of mean-spirited attacks are likely to alienate the very voters in the middle that PBO needs to persuade.

MICHELLE GOLDBERG: "I wonder: I mean, it can't only be me that maybe inititally saw Ann Romney as maybe a sympathetic or neutral figure but who is increasingly seeing her as someone who is kind of insufferable because of the way she's milking this thing. And, you know, in a lot of ways the op-ed was totally anodyne, right? You know, yes, motherhood is beautiful. I find that phrase, "the crown of motherhood" really kind of creepy. Not just because of its, like, somewhat, you know, I mean it's kind of usually really authoritarian societies that give out, like, the Cross of Motherhood." [link]
Feminists, for their own reasons, hate motherhood.

So when Ann Romney writes about mothers on Mother's Day the irascible and ├╝ber-sensitive lefties go completely nuts.

I don't get it.

Maybe these feminists need men in their lives to give them that sense of self-worth.

What's Wrong With This Story?

There's a shortage of farm labor in Alabama because the Governor there has instituted a crackdown on illegal immigrants?

A labor shortage going on at a time when we have 14 million Americans looking for - and not finding - work?

Can welfare and unemployment be that enticing that non-illegals feel no need to get their hands dirty working in the fields?

If so, we've got serious problems in this country.

What ever happened to "workfare"?

Deviant Behavior For Me But Not For Thee

If you demand that the law be accepting of one deviant lifestyle, you can't claim outrage when the law recognizes others.  Though some don't see the connection:
Backlash grows at N.Y. ruling on viewing of child porn
By Cheryl Wetzstein, The Washington Times

In the wake of a New York court ruling that says it’s not illegal to “merely” view online child pornography, child advocates are urging Internet-savvy federal prosecutors to take over these kinds of cases as two state lawmakers rush to fix the law.

It is “a singular outrage that the highest court in New York has decriminalized the act of viewing child pornography by computer,” Patrick Trueman, president and chief executive of Morality in Media, said after the May 8 ruling by the New York Court of Appeals.

The high court unanimously agreed to reverse two of the dozens of child-pornography counts against a former college professor, saying there was no evidence the professor did more than look at some images on his computer.

The ruling resulted in a spate of head-spinning headlines like Gawker.com’s “Viewing Child Porn Online Officially A-OK in New York State” and “Looking at Child Porn Is Totally Legal in New York State” by the Atlantic Wire. [link]
What this pervert does in the privacy of his bedroom is his business. Right?

Right?

One's sexual orientation is a civil right. Right?

Right?

Those are your arguments. Live with the consequences.

But ... but ... but ... there's a difference.

No. There's not.
