It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

Producers will try to fit person to part in 'Vagina Monologues'

The ASUO Women's Center is reworking the casting process for this year's production of "The Vagina Monologues" in response to protests that last year's production underrepresented various communities of women.

Instead of holding auditions, the producers will solicit nominations from several student groups, as well as the Women's and Gender Studies Program, to assemble a potential cast. The final casting decision will be made by a volunteer selection committee.

"The queer community, the women of color community and the plus-size community did not feel represented last year," producer Nicole Pete said.

If it gets any better than that, I'd be surprised. I mean seriously, the Queer Community, The Plus Sized Community, The Women of Color Community??

It's not that Liberals should be banned and breeding programs created to reduce their numbers. It's not that at all. But they should be rounded up, put into reservations and given government grants to keep the humor alive.
Duct Tape! Duct Tape!

Why I Don't Miss Cable

Activists Denounce Fox's Upcoming 'Who's Your Daddy?'

Child rights and adoption advocates have reacted angrily to the upcoming Fox reality series Who's Your Daddy?, in which adopted children must select their real parent from a group of eight men, seven of whom are pretending to be the father. Adam Pertman, author of Adoption Nation, told BBC News: "This isn't just offensive, it's destructive. ... How can anyone think to turn such a personal, involved and poignant experience into a game show?" But co-exec producer Kevin Healey commented: "I can understand the reservations. ... But the people came to it with great excitement and a willingness to play the game. It's a fun and healthy way to get to know this person that they've never met." The series is set to debut with a 90-minute special on Jan. 3.

When asked about Western Civilization, Mahatma Ghandi is reported to have said, "I think it would be a good idea."
Teevee Announcer: "Next on Fox, 'World's Deadliest Executions!'"
Homer: "Awww. They only show crucifixions during the sweeps."

Happy birthday, Brian.
Way to go avoiding crucifixion.

Crackpot Theory

There are a number of states that do not require electors to vote as the state's popular vote went.

Electors of Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, and West Virginia! I call upon you to vote for Kerry! There is no legal nor moral reason for you to not do so. Note that Bush clearly lied about Iraq, the economy, and Social Security!

The fate of the world is in your hands and this is the very reason we have an Electoral College.
Republicans and Democrats can both agree that George W. Bush is a central figure in the apocolypse.
