K Lo goes small on the big day

I was disappointed with Kathryn Lopez’ response to the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Clicking through NRO, I fully expected to come across some spirited wailing and tears. We should have had rending of garments and raining of digital sod upon illuminated heads. I was really hoping for a tale of some Danish martyr murmuring something in Latin while dancing The Ephemera on the slobber-gobbed Lopez’ ceiling (“. . est homicidium K-Lo . . “). OH Saint Geert of Erøskøboing! Come baaack!

Are you, dear reader, sick of abortion? Sick of the poverty of the discourse? Sick of the hands of politics on the issue? Sick that it has put evil, tempting thoughts into your head? Sick of where it has left you? This moment is for you.

Promises. But sigh. Here was the highlight of the pro-life throw down:

People are looking for something more. People are looking for an invitation to something better. Women aren’t looking for judgment. Many of them also are not happy with the expectations we have for them to manage their fertility away and pretend to be men with more wardrobe options in the workplace and on the social scene . .

Preaching to her friends. Not very edgy. She couldn’t come up with any reason to get out of her comfort zone on the big day, after all. ‘It’s their bodies and our selves, people.’ Wouldn’t that fit nicely on a bumper sticker? Yes but Kathryn Jean wouldn’t want to brook their complaining. They’re all very insensitive you see (you).

Anyway, I’d bet my bottom dollar women are thrilled to have the same options as men, sexually speaking. Not getting pregnant last weekend. Not getting pregnant next weekend. I’ll say God bless The Pill and you can take that as insultingly as you like, Catholics. The same goes for abortion too. I would not want to live in a world without that last-ditch option.

Whenever Kathryn writes something as clay-footed and Victorian as this I am immediately reminded she’s in her mid-30s and a virgin. If she’d had any experience with actual hot and heavy romance, I might take these tracts a little more seriously.

To that end, it hit me that she might never have even dated. I wondered if she’d ever been spotted with, I don’t know, a Newsmax editor at Elaine’s or something. I thought I might look at her Wikipedia entry:

So there. The life of a token Vatican hire is lonely. We can look forward to the same post from the same person 10 years from now, at the 50 year be-laboring. That’s 3,645 pills from now, unless you’re the type to huck the placebos.

Shorter (barely) Kathryn Jean Lopez:

“There’s no reason to intimidate people by calling the pre-abortive ultrasound a transvalgye–, er, transvehee–, uh, cootie stick procedure. I’ll have you know this technique is absolutely normal and routine. Doctors do that to our vagooeh–, heh, vagleenas all the time. Grow up, already.”


Kathryn Jean Lopez: Nobody from New Jersey wants fellatio

Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review’s The Corner:

Who’s Really Obsessed with Sex?

Slate deserves some kind of award for interpretive stretch in reporting that Chris Christie was talking fellatio on the campaign trail Sunday . .

I suspect he would have reacted the same way to a male protester. Call him a bully, guilty of Garden State chauvinism. But this is ridiculous.

“This is ridiculous. A New Jersey governor may tell anyone ‘You know – something may go down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, sweetheart,’ and it would hardly be a invitation to fellate him. It would be a playful jape, as in ‘You’re going down to defeat, my worthy friend, in this battle of wits.’ The gentleman would then expect a reply from you, sir. You’d say ‘I don’t swing that way, Bruce Vilanch,’ adding ‘Didn’t they try to land something like you at Lakehurst? Didn’t 97 people die?'”


First: Kathryn Lopez talks sex. Next: Dung beetles on cuisine.

Contraception is Not the Solution
Kathryn Lopez | Feb 25, 2011

Why are Republicans waging war on contraception?

Idiocy? Fear of sexuality? Anger with a few, wanted children? Take your pick.

It’s not the first time the question has been asked, and it won’t be the last. Truth be told, Republicans aren’t engaging in battle on that front — but the phrase gets close to a legitimate fight.

Kathryn Jean Lopez. Ugh. What an intellect.

“Here’s a question — why do we do this stupid stuff? Aw, heck, we DON’T! Nope! NOT US! I was kidding around, throwing you a bone, having a little fun. Incidentally, I call this essay . . ‘IT’S BETTER TO BE STUPID.’

While women may want love and marriage, they don’t expect it. Justice Sandra O’Connor wrote in the Planned Parenthood v. Casey opinion that women had “organized intimate relationships, and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society, in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail.” And why wouldn’t they? Who, nowadays, encourages them to want more?

K-Lo, pictured here . .

. . the Catholic prude, will turn 35 in a couple weeks. And she’s a virgin. Well, we can assume she’s a virgin because she’s so Catholic. Given the way she carries her faith and scolds everybody, she’d BETTER be chaste.

But sexual inexperience doesn’t cause stupidity. Kathryn, people who are sexually active are the most expectant of love and marriage. That’s how human relationships operate: they increase in intensity and intimacy as they progress. Call it “wanting more.”

We’ve come to expect less for and from ourselves, and for and from one another. In part, it’s the fruit of the contraceptive pill. New York magazine recently observed in a cover feature: “The pill is so ingrained in BLAH BLAH BLAH . . .

No. Enough of the rookie bullshit. No coaching from spectators.


What Ed Ruscha made says everything about Obama’s mind. What Conservatives make says nothing about them at all.

The ‘serious’ people and their penchant for ‘serious’ discourse continue. Amazing how crystal clear the essential nature and motivations of the President are while they remain utterly opaque to themselves.

Obama’s Revealing Taste in Art
By Nick Schulz

The Times has a big front-page story today about President Obama’s continued indecision on an Afghan force buildup. In an unintentionally ironic twist, the Times also carries a big story, this one on p. A13, about the art borrowed from the National Gallery by Obama to hang on the White House walls.

It includes the following painting:


As the Times puts it:

Another contemporary work chosen by the Obamas is a word painting by the California artist Ed Ruscha. Called “I Think I’ll … ” it deals with the subject of indecision.

Indecision and Obama. You don’t say.

These people are so intelligent. And reeeeaalllll deep.

This, Apparently, Is Not a Joke
[Kathryn Jean Lopez]

Barack Obama has this hanging in the White House:

Obama's Indecisive Artwork

Well, now we gotta impeach him. Or shoot him. Meanwhile, the sort of stuff that they themselves create with their own hands and minds has absolutely nothing to do with them, or anything else, ever. So shut up:

“I genuinely regret the decision I made in passing this e-mail message along. Directly to President Obama, I sincerely apologize for offending him. This was, in no way whatsoever, my intention. The image has nothing to do with my feelings or thoughts on any race or culture. I recognize that this image is offensive and hope that the nation refocuses on assuring all Americans have access to high-quality, affordable health care with no party interfering in the patient-physician relationship…”said [Dr. David] McKalip

In an interview yesterday with the St. Petersburg Times, which picked up the story, he declared: “I am not a racist. I am simply a person speaking up to make sure patients don’t get hurt by the government and by insurance companies.”

As a defense against the racism charge, he noted, in the paper’s words, that he had “helped organize a career counseling day several years ago for African-American Boy Scouts.” And he blamed liberal activists for touting the email, which he called a “satire.”

And then this guy

Some [e-mails] compared Obama to O.J. Simpson while others suggested that “nigger rigs” should now be called “presidential solutions.”

Perhaps the most overboard e-mail was sent on Jan. 15. It read: “Breaking News Playboy just offered Sarah Palin $1 million to pose nude in the January issue. Michelle Obama got the same offer from National Geographic.”

[Atwater City Councilman Gary] Frago admitted sending the e-mails, but showed no regret. “If they’re from me, then I sent them,” he said. “I have no disrespect for the president or anybody, they weren’t meant in any bad way or harm.”

Well, that’s a relief.
