While I'm at it, I might as well just divert all (!) my traffic today over to Digby's place. She has two more posts up that I'd like to draw your attention to:
First, this one from David Atkins, part of which includes this:
This is a man who is absolutely terrified that someone, somewhere, might be having more fun and staying truer to themselves than he is. And he's bound and determined to stop it. He desperately needs a good psychiatrist to talk through whatever repressed, latent urges he's feeling and bring them out in a more healthy way.And this, from Digby herself.
On a broader note, it's mind-boggling that the same people who are obsessed over what two or more people might be doing consensually and harmless in their bedrooms or at a music concert, hurting no one and enjoying themselves, are utterly unconcerned with the horrific damage done by billionaire greedheads who pollute and impoverish entire nations simply to buy a few more yachts and private jets. It's repulsive moral perversion of the highest order, and sane observers shouldn't be afraid to call it that for fear of offending their delicate sensibilities.
Something is really, really wrong with these people. Not just the politicians, but their supporters, too.
So, yeah, Thank You Dan Savage!
