Oh, I take birth control, and other civil rights, quite seriously, Sandy. It's Rick Santorum I have a hard time taking seriously. The fact that he and his idiocy are still in the race scares the hell out of me. The fact that after 8 years of George Bush and the McCain/Palin ticket the Republican Party remains so clueless disheartens me. But, then, I hope for a complete Democratic sweep, so I must be a lunatic, too.
