Nude protesters — demonstrating against federal budget cuts to efforts at fighting HIV/AIDS — pushed their way in House Speaker John Boehner's office today, waving body parts around and generally being naked.
The scene, as reported by Buzzfeed's Chris Geidner via Twitter, was completely nuts! And also boobs. Plus, quite a few asses and vajayjays. And one thing that, as of time of press, remains unidentified.
Three protesters were arrested. Coincidentally, all of them were women.

Newt Gingrich in response to a question about AIDS for which he said he was not qualified to answer…
"One of the real changes that comes when you start running for president — as opposed to being an analyst on Fox — is I have to actually know what I’m talking about. It's a severe limitation."
Uh oh. I better watch myself or I'm gonna wake up one day and find myself being charmed by Newt Gingrich.
You know what? I'll bet that's the exact same thing Callista said to herself about 20 years ago.

Take a (very short) break from forcing your friends and family to create twitter accounts to follow @TheIndecider in the name of the Indy5000 and check out what these other tweetstars have to say about the week in news.
Now if they just lift that ban on 16-year-old openly gay doctors, Doogie Howser will finally make sense.
Hold on, so let's get this straight– I don't get what I want, and you don't get what you want? Compromise is so confusing!

Teabagger Christine O'Donnell, the Delaware Republican nominee for Senate, hates many awesome things, including masturbation and porn. Guess what else she hates?
Haha, oh, just the distribution of condoms. Why? Because she thinks it won't stop the spread of AIDS. Talking Points Memo unearthed a hilarious C-Span video of this actual senatorial candidate from back in 1997…
After complaining that "there is a gross disproportionate allocation of funds" going to AIDS treatment and prevention in comparison to resources designated to combat heart disease, O'Donnell compared living healthier to changing the "lifestyle" that she said lead to AIDS.
"When somebody finds out that they're at high risk for heart disease, they cut out the fatty foods, they start exercising, they quit smoking. However, our approach to AIDS, when you're in a high risk behavior, is to eliminate the consequences so that you can continue in your lifestyle which brings about this disease," O'Donnell said.
Referring to people who get AIDS as victims, O'Donnell said, was "the kind of spinning with words and manipulating words that empowers the bias when it comes to AIDS."
Please, for the love of God, let there be a Palin/O'Donnell ticket in 2012. Real America needs an anti-gay, anti-orgasm, anti-condom, anti-choice duo of stupid, attractive brunettes to lead this nation to true greatness.

I've been meaning to write about this whole American Christian politicians getting Uganda to jail its homosexual citizens and murder its HIV-positive citizens thing for a while now, but somehow I just couldn't find the funny side of a bunch of U.S. congresspeople speaking for America while trying to use an African country as a testing ground for their Christian wonderland fantasies.
At any rate, Rachel Maddow has been covering this on here show, and last night she had a nice long conversation with the "formerly" gay inspiration for hate and murder in the name of Jesus. And it is a terrible thing to witness.
