A Message from Christine O'Donnell, Senatorial Candidate from That Place on the Expressway Kinda Near Philly
Now, more than ever it's important that we all — whether you're a Tea Party Republican or a Leftjihadistcrat or whatever — to question our ideologies. And then fall in line with a very narrow and claustrophobic set of impossible to maintain moralistic principles that expunge any vestige of joy from life. Come on, America…

How did anybody ever understand anything that was happening in the world before the advent of Taiwanese computer animation?
In case you were wondering whether or not these Next Action Media videos are the best things ever, please allow me to point you to exhibit A: That one kid that O'Donnell ran over to yell at, he was literally choking a chicken.
These are the best. Case closed.

Finally! We can all stop wondering what issues really matter to a bunch of Ohio teabaggers! Man, so much speculation. So much money on the line. But now that The Freedom Institute of Erie County has officially released its litmus test survey of questions that "will be put into [its] voter guide and allow [it] to rate, recommend, and endorse candidates," we can all take a breather.
Obviously, there was the obligatory anti-choice, anti-Obamacare, anti-Fed, pro-gun rights sentiments. But mixed in with those were a few that — while not particularly surprising — were somewhat jarring to see stated so plainly. Such as…
* The regulation of Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere should be left to God and not government and I oppose all measures of Cap and Trade as well as the teaching of global warming theory in our schools.
Yep. Educated people about global warming is an affront to Jehovah's authority as Supreme Carbon Dioxide Regulator. You know, because how's he supposed to do his job with a bunch of whiny liberals complaining about dead polar bears every two minutes. Best that people should just direct their energies elsewhere. Like pro wrestling.
* Parental consent should be required for sex education that teaches more than direct abstinence.
Again, education is the problem here. It's a well-known scientific fact that if people don't learn about something, it simply cannot happen. Children who are not taught about where a penis goes, will not figure it out on their own.
Demonizing science and education is all well and good, but what about some genuine irrational hatred? What about the gays? Don't they deserve a little attention from all the closeted teabaggers [original definition applies here] of Ohio?
* Marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman, any other type of Union is not marriage.
* Children should not be placed into foster homes where the parents are homosexual, bisexual, or transgender.
* I oppose the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy of the military and believe that all same sex partners should be banned from combat duty in the military because of the propensity to transmit blood-borne diseases in the theatre of battle.
"The theatre of battle?" Really, Freedom Institute? That's the phrasing and spelling you're gonna go with for the anti-gay soldier issue? Hey, don't get me wrong, that's a rhetorical question. I'm not asking. I'm not asking anything.

Bristol Palin's Three-Episode Stint on "Dancing with the Stars" Will Double the Population of Wasilla
With all due disgust to every media outlet falling over each other to throw piles of money at the Wasilla Hillbillies, I'm not sure I'm on board with the call to blame Bristol Palin's obnoxious "celebrity" status for a supposed rise in teen pregnancies in her home town…
They’re going to look at this as, Bristol Palin got pregnant as a teen, and now she is famous! They will see her being offered multiple opportunities, being cast on a sitcom, joining the cast of “Dancing with the Stars”, all while making hundreds of thousands of dollars. For many teens it will appear that the road to success is through unprotected sex…
And many other extremely disturbing and jaw dropping messages. I think that having Bristol on television dancing along with those other so-called celebrities is just going to reinforce the idea in the minds of many teens that having a baby can make you glamorous and famous, and you will get tons of attention. Which of course is absolutely ridiculous! Yet many of these girls are just screaming for attention and believe this is a way to get it.
"All I need to do to make it onto the cover of People is get Justin to put a baby into my belly. But, first, I've got to get my mom to run for vice-president of the United States. How do I go about making that happen?"
I'm quite well aware that 14-year-olds aren't known for their critical reasoning skills, but if they're going out in droves and getting knocked up to follow in the footsteps of their hero Bristol Palin, shouldn't the blame really fall on the parents of those little girls and not the beleaguered TV producer who desperately brought Sarah Palin's daughter's name up in a pitch meeting in a last ditch effort to not get fired. I'm not sure in whose hands we're placing our children's future, but I hope it's not the guy who's trying to score a bunch of coke for Friday night's premiere party.
