Michigan Just Cannot Get Enough Vaginas

News

Michigan just cannot stop being ridiculous. State Rep. Lesia Liss, the only female Democrat to vote for the recent package of anti-abortion bills you may have heard about, wasso overcome with the vapors following the utterance of the word vagina, her husband had to speak on her behalf. What does Mark Liss’ wife, the actual elected official, think about Eve Ensler and the ladies of the Michigan Legislature (2013 calendars available in time for the holidays!) performing The Vagina Monologues at the Michigan Capitol tonight?


Mark Liss, husband of state Rep. Lesia Liss, D-Warren, said both he and his wife objected to some of the language in this week's abortion debates. Lesia Liss was unavailable to comment.

"The irony is, Lesia loves the play," Mark Liss said. "We've actually been to see it, and I said, 'When are we going to the Penis Monologues?' "

Very "penetrating" insight, Mark Liss!

Oh wait, no it isn't.

You know why, Mark Liss? Because no one is trying to legislate wangs.

Time was, modern men and women had a kind of unspoken arrangement about these things. When women wanted to discuss their changing bodies, men went to the bar. To watch a game. With a plate of buffalo wings and a cold beer. It was a really good system. Also, women and their gynecologists were allowed to privately make vagina-related medical decisions.

Sadly, the Michigan legislature screwed up this arrangement with that no more filthy vagina talk you stupid whores policy.

So, thanks Michigan House Republicans. You’ve ruined everything. Because of your dumb speech codes if men ever want to get laid again, instead of watching a game, they'll have to pretend this Vagina Monologues spectacle is moving and inspiring. Some of us were really looking forward to tonight’s Yankees-Braves match-up on ESPN.

And, yes, it’s absurd and vulgar to equate the curtailing of reproductive rights to a televised baseball game. However, since Lansing doesn’t care about the former, maybe the latter will get their attention. [Detroit Free Press]

Fellow Wonkers, this last week of horror has been wearing on us all, because here we are in a world where the "president" of the United States has ordered that migrant children be taken away from their parents at the border, and is simultaneously proud of it (for his base) and cravenly blaming it on Democrats because even he knows it's morally reprehensible. But what the hell can we do about it, we are all keening, beyond calling our senators and representatives and posting sadness on Twitter, the latter of which is of dubious utility to anyone, and mostly depressing?

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee's playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out!
