I want to know why every straight parent at the elementary school comes up to me and says, I really love Rachel Maddow

I want to know why a man can stick a vacuum on his penis at a car wash- like no one would notice?

I want to know why men will always always always explain their mistakes by blaming you

I want to know why we need ads to convince people that McCain is a fucking nightmare- we could use all those dollars for gosh, I dunno, education instead

"I want to know why people feel comfortable denying gays marriage rights but think taking the right to marry away from interracial couples is beyond their imagination."

No - they just want you to think that they think that. The reality is that most of them think that Loving v. Virginia is the same type of evil, lib-rul 'judicial activism' that they think Bush v. Gore wasn't.

Because...........

My Dear,

I would like to know why people pick their noses while driving and think no one sees them.

I would like to know why I had a pimple for a year that came up in the same place during junior high.

I would like to know why you expect Ben "the deep voice" to be more less stable than, oh, a woman at 13.

Not all women are smarter, more complete and capable, unless you are voting for Gov Palin.

Firstly, young people are undeservedly beautiful by societal imposed standards. They are also ungrateful for it. Come and look at my pretty spare tire while sleeping and you will fall in love. :)

Save the bread ends for last to keep the bread fresher in the middle and then wrap them around hot dogs.

I want to know why a man can stick a vacuum on his penis at a car wash- like no one would notice?

I want to know more about that. You've got to provide a link for that one.
