HOLY FUCK! GOD'S DICK KNOCKED IN THE DIRT!

It wasn't a good day for the defenders of all that is good, right and pure on this here nation under God, increasingly beset by corrupt values such as tolerance, fairness, and liberty. Not only did Biblefucker extraordinaire Roy Moore receive a sound thumping at the polls -- which would have been a difficult feat for an old-school godster in Alabama had the other guy not been cut from the same cloth -- but the U.S. Senate failed by 18 votes (out of 97) to pass a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage and legal same-sex unions. All this just when Ann Coulter, perhaps realizing fully for the first time that she's old, not sexy even by the standards of blind fetishists, and a thoroughgoing piece of shit, is even managing to alienate many right-wingers with her bizarre comments about the alleged whininess and gold-digging of 9/11 widows. The Good Lord must have been enjoying one hell of a blowjob up Heaven way for all of this shit to simultaneously befall His most loyal supplicants.

Having been fed a shit sandwich at the federal level, wingers like these are already scrambling to insist that gay marriage be treated strictly as a states' rights issue, since "the will of the people" should be allowed to decide the matter. Here's the reality, ya cuntbumpers: If "the will of the people" were allowed to determine laws without some constraints, the speed limit on interstate highways would either not exist or would be 100 miles an hour, no one attending public schools would have to take math after sixth grade, and most taxes would quickly disappear. In fact, if the will of the people were all that really mattered, why would we even bother electing politicians? This is civics-for-shitbrains stuff, innit? But a lot of people seem to be looking pretty far up at "shitbrain" nowadays.

If taken to the state level, even worse things would happen: States like Georgia might re-institute school segregation if not lynchings, while Texas might castrate youths with no interest in either Jesus or football, especially those who enjoyed reading science journals. The people of Tennessee elected Eric Watson to the State House of Representatives, and look at what they got: an anti-abortion homophobic gun nut without either the decency or the restraint to keep from publicly declaring, "It’ll be a sad day when queers and lesbians are allowed to get married ... and kiss in front of the courthouse." Worse than that, though, is that Watson -- who is also fat, bald and ugly -- not only invokes hollow buzzphrases, but deploys them even more inanely than most. In response to the ACLU's challenge to a proposed Tennessee amendment that would ban gay marriage and unions there, Watson said, "We must continue fighting to ensure the Constitution is amended by the will of the people rather than by judicial activism."

Well, here's the thing, Eric my man: Both the U.S> House and the U.S. Senate failed to pass the same amendment at the federal level. Is Congress now a member of the judicial branch of government? How dare they legislate from the...never mind.

"The will of the people" can all too often be used to rob folks one of the only things guaranteed them by the Constitution: basic rights. Unless people are all keen on legalizing (or mandating) the teaching of creation fucktardery in American schools and the abolition of every religion except Christianity, it makes perfect sense to let the courts decide on the legality if issues when people's rights are at stake. Visceral redneck opinions don't count for twat-all in these scenarios.

Ten million points for using the phrase "shit sandwich," and another 10 billion if it's in reference to a certain favorite movie of mine... Oui ou non?

The movie I best remember the phrase from walked a fine line between stupid and clever. But then again...it should

I was thinking of this bit from This Is Spinal Tap:

[reading a review of the album "Shark Sandwich"]
Marty DiBergi: The review for "Shark Sandwich" was merely a two word review which simply read "Shit Sandwich".

Indeed -- "fine line between stupid and clever" also came from This is Spinal Tap, which I'm now going to have to watch again (thanks, CR and Netflix).
