The various campaigns to strike a re-definition of rape from HR3 have had their first success: the wording has been taken out, but it's still a heinous bill. Laugh at twitter, but it can get fiery. Keep calling and writing your senators and don't stop thinking about people who have less than you-- be that money, privilege, access or power-- and how this affects them. Here's some Kristen Schaal on The Daily Show to remind us all how effing stupid and mean people can really be. J just declared this video "semi-epic". I agree:

Tiger Beatdown's latest post has the list of the shitty Dems who decided to vote yes on HR3, one of which is, of course, from Arkansas. Hello Mike Ross! So, I went to his website to see if I could shoot off a "You sir, are a douchebag" letter, and lo and behold, even if you type in a zipcode that applies to his district, you still can't send an email. The contact form just loops back to the same spot, and the code is messed up. So, if you can hear this, MIKE ROSS, YOU SIR, ARE A DOUCHEBAG. I spare no eloquence in these matters.
Going back to work tomorrow, just in time to start dreaming about the weekend. Thanks snow!
