Today we’ll have a soundtrack:

The following sent from blog.influences Liz and Sarah:

Devastating News – The Pursuit of Harpyness.

Cristina Page: The Murder of Dr. Tiller, a Foreshadowing.

Ten Things I’d Love to Tell My Younger Self – DivineCaroline.

Goodbye, GM | CommonDreams.org. By Michael Moore, who like him or not called it over a decade ago.

t r u t h o u t | Empathy, Sotomayor, and Democracy: The Conservative Stealth Strategy. By the great George Lakoff. [read more by him!]

t r u t h o u t | Everyone Should See “Torturing Democracy”. By Bill Moyers

During his speech to the conservative American Enterprise Institute last week – immediately on the heels of President Obama’s address at the National Archives – former Vice President Dick Cheney used the euphemism “enhanced interrogation” a full dozen times.

Smothering the reality of torture in euphemism, of course, has a political value, enabling its defenders to diminish the horror and possible illegality. It also gives partisans the opening they need to divert our attention by turning the future of the prison at Guantanamo Bay into a “wedge issue,” as noted on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times.

Jezebel – On George Tiller And The Profound Power of Language – George tiller assassination.

Jezebel – Playboy On Conservative Women: “Castration Has Begun To Look Appealing” – Playboy conservative women.

Because it’s not as if Cimbalo does anything in his piece but slag on these women for having the audacity to be attractive, conservative, opinionated and loud about those opinions. In other words, if he didn’t agree with us mouthy liberal broads, he wouldn’t want to fuck us either, and apparently prefers his women quiet and agreeable. And that – no matter what your politics are – is just gross.

Jezebel – What Is Happiness Anyway? – Happiness.

Observations from a Baby Shower – Feministing.Community. I think this about babies, weddings, dating, television, films, advertising, politics…does that mean I’m not ready for any of it?
