Capitol-ism

If it were a man accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, Mitch McConnell would be walking around saying, "Kavanaugh?  Kavanaugh Who?"

Low-Key Celebration

Since I know lesbians from around the country read this blog, I must not exult over the fact that my beloved hometown team won the WNBA championship last night.  I will be restrained, and just casually mention that the SEATTLE STORM stomped that other team, and SUE, NATASHA, BREANNA, JEWELL, ALYSHA, SAMI, KALEENA, CRYSTAL, JORDIN, NOELLE, COURTNEY and MERCEDES are goddesses on earth, and every other team in the league should bow down to THEM.

See?  I'm the model of reserve.

Spreading the News

Last week was a busy one in American news, what with that anonymous New York Times op-ed, Bob Woodward's book, the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and Barack Obama's return to the political stage.  Owing to all this red, white and blue hubbub, you might've missed important news from the wider world.

And I can't have that.

Last week India's Supreme Court unanimously struck down the country's colonial-era law banning gay sex.  Chief Justice Dipak Misra declared the law, known as Section 377, was "irrational, indefensible and manifestly arbitrary."

It gets even better.  Beyond decriminalizing consensual gay sex, the justices ruled that gays are to be accorded all the protections of the Indian Constitution.

If Queen Victoria were alive, this would kill her.

Naturally there was rainbow-hued joy all over the world's second most populous nation.  Predictably there was also religious indignation.  Conservative Hindus, Muslims and Christians pledged to fight the ruling.

There we gays go again, bringing age-old enemies together, whether in Mumbai or Jerusalem or Atlanta.  We just have that gift.

Now Trump’s saying Democrats are going to be “violent” if they win big in November? What are we going to do? Throw our PBS tote bags at them?

Raising Cane

USA Today reports that two Malaysian women were caned in public yesterday, their punishment under strict Islamic law for "trying to have sex."

In addition to the physical pain, the humiliation, the degradation and the shame, the two women apparently didn't even succeed in having sex.

That should've been punishment enough.

Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.

Magic Moment

Two fellows named Nick and John married at Prestonfield House in Edinburgh yesterday, and who should crash their photo shoot but J.K. Rowling.

Apparently she was having lunch there, but I prefer to believe she apparated specially for the occasion.

Threats

Donald Trump said if he were impeached the stock market would crash, and Rudy Guiliani said Americans "would revolt" against impeachment.

Pish tush.  If they wanted to terrify me over the prospect of impeachment, all they had to say was two words:  President Pence.
