While much of the 2010 election is focused on the economy, there’s another issue quietly simmering which underscores a shift in the Republican Party: abortion. Specifically, an increasing number of GOP candidates — especially ones receiving heavy support from the Tea Party movement — not only oppose abortion, but want to bar women who have been victims of rape or incest from having access to the procedure.

C&T: I’m speechless.  Bar women who have been victims of rape or incest from having an abortion?  Have they finally lost their collective mind?  Yes, “mind”.  Singular.  And I think I might be exaggerating.  Truly ugly misogyny, approved by the GOP.  WTF. 

“I’m a ‘Christian’ sez one…’God will intercede.’ 

I say: “Go fuck yourself.  Tell that to someone who’s poor, desperate and at the end of their emotional rope.  Or someone the victim of rape or incest.  Why didn’t your God intercede when THAT was going on?  Not gonna get into the “free will” debate.  But I would like to point out it does work both ways.  Either God “intercedes” or he doesn’t.  Can’t have God intercede only when it’s convenient for YOU. P.S. You’re an idiot.”

C&T:  Hey, idiot “birthers”: take note!

Its hard enough to make a good movie or TV show, but apparently some of the stuff you watch or listen to also contains secret hidden messages that only close examination will reveal. Or, at least, that’s what countless conspiracy theorists around the internet would have us believe.The strange thing is, sometimes they’ll produce a piece of evidence so eerily convincing, its like they’ve waved their hands and made your sanity disappear. Here are five of pop culture conspiracy theorists most convincing nuggets, and a look behind the curtain at how they get you …

C&T:  My personal favorite is “The Simpsons Predict 9/11″.  Man, some folks have too much time on their hands.

C&T:  I can’t help but think “what the fuck?” I mean, why do people care what she wears and why does it make news?  Apparently the fashionistas are whipped into a lather.  How will I sleep tonight with this knowledge?  Like a Ambien addict, Gentle Reader.

Hell, no one wants to know what I’m wearin’.  (Usually a sailor hat tipped jauntily over one eye, or a derby, coonskin cap or fez, high heels, an “overnight” Depends…and nothing else….)  Anyway, got this in a hilarious an email from mansonsturtle:
