Every Sperm is Sacred {Monty Python's Meaning of Life}

In honor of Susan Orr, recently appointed as acting deputy assistant secretary for population affairs in the Bush Administration despite having said if you use a condom, you are part of the Culture of Death. No word, yet, on whether she supports murder charges for killers of spermatozoa-Americans.

  1. Where are the rock they find these people under? How have they managed to find so many?

    We need more chlorine in the gene pool [I stole that from someone].

  2. ...there are days when I get the sneaking suspicion that they're just phoning it in now...

    No preamble; no sleight of hand; just openly slide a birth control opponent into the position responsible for addressing family planning issues at the federal level. It's enough to make a body go all slacked-jaw (or beak, as the case may be)...

  3. Heh. It's been too long since I've seen that scene. In a comment thread on my site, I wondered if Susan Orr is related to Madame Orr in "Support Your Local Sheriff." But I suppose she's a different kind of Orr, a political Orr.

    I always imagine Bush as a schoolyard bully whose greatest pleasure is sticking it in someone's eye. To date, he has always gotten away with it, and I don't see that changing until he exits the office he stole.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
