…when she can write stuff like this:

(6) Are gay rights part and parcel with basic conservatism? If so, why are so many elected Republicans so skittish/unsupportive about the subject? If not, tell me why.

No, we don’t generally care for identity politics of any sort, much less hearing about people’s sex lives, even Nino Scalia’s. (And judging by the number of children he has, it’s pretty active.) Conservatives believe in individual rights, low tax rates, fighting terrorism and punishing criminals — so do gays! They also happen to believe Judy Garland was the most underappreciated and misunderstood person in the history of show business. I don’t think most gays care about gay marriage; they like going to the gay marriage meeting because it’s a good way to meet other gays.

I wish I wrote that

This is what you would call a serious geek alert:

What if Charles Dickens were a Trekkie? The answer runs an hour and 20 minutes and includes three fight scenes, 17 actors with latex ridges glued to their foreheads and a performance delivered entirely in Klingon

Yes this is real!

…you don’t have to go far on the internet to find one of my hats on a young lady’s head.

And speaking of this young lady’s head it is definitely screwed on right because she tells us this:

Bob (Belvedere) makes the great point that we don’t just need to mathematically get more votes than the Democrats; we need to win by enough so that they can’t steal elections from us. (If you heard the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the 2000 election, just consider that it was the frustration of Democrats who were dying to steal that election and were furious – furious! – that the rule of law intervened.)

Now, just a thought: beyond campaigning our butts off for the next 26 days, why don’t we all be poll-watchers on Election Day? Candidates have a legal right to send representatives to examine the ballot boxes before polling commences (ensuring that the boxes are empty and set to zero) and check each voter against a list of registered voters. It’s easy, low-key, and very helpful to both candidates and the integrity of the system.

Lyndon Johnson used to say if you do everything you will win. Now he was referring to tactics beyond the legal but the principle is correct, the moment you relax that’s when the race can be lost, and if we blow this chance it will be our own fault.

Great minds think alike.

This November is going to look like the Fireworks scene from Police Squad

That will be the media on Election night “Nothing to see here!”
