Spongeworthy, Cont'd

Day 2 thoughts on the most shocking public outing of a celebrity since McGreevey:

- Experts have weighed in: Sponges of Bob’s persuasion reproduce asexually, making questions of their sexual orientation moot.

- Meanwhile, Bill O’Reilly continued his slide into irrelevance tonight, referring to the beloved cartoon sponge as "Squarepants Puffbob.” He did this while interviewing new Essence Magazine editor Michaela Angela Davis (who, despite being an editor of Essence, being presumably named after Angela Davis, and having an enormous Afro, looks very much like a white person.)

- Andrew Sullivan, inexplicably, has yet to address the situation. The world waits with baited breath. But one thing Andrew has been writing about lately is this controversy involving a new book claiming Abraham Lincoln was gay. Sully specifically took issue with a Weekly Standard cover depicting the 16th president of the United States in a stereotypically gay fashion.

In response to this Dan Savage- who has said that he and Sullivan are friends- is at it again, once again naming embarrassing sexual terms after Republicans. In this week’s column Savage- in the midst of gloating that “Santorum” winning an award from the American Dialect Society- answered a little from a reader asking about a certain gay sex act known as “femoral intercourse” that Honest Abe was alleged to have engaged in. Asked if the act is still performed today, Dan answered thusly:

Some other names for femoral intercourse: college-style, dry humping, English method, and my favorite, the Weekly Standard.
Then again, the Standard did once run this cover image…

Why does the world wait with baited breath? Is this a sponge fishing joke?

Some of today's rap music


It’s all about money. It’s like lyrical dope. Some of the lyrics are negatively influential and all races are bombarded with degrading images of African-Americans. Based on their own logic, if dope was legal BET would provide to the people as long as there was a demand for dope. BET is not alone. Most of US have sold our people out in order to make a buck...and these are the people that we strongly depend on for community and political representation. Our society is degrading at a much faster rate than other societies. Being distanced from the political process and lack of significant economic opportunities has contributing to this degradation. If people with brown hair were economically oppressed, then they would be the ones compromising the moral fabric and image of their own culture just to make a buck. I am tired of writing questions on index cards and hoping that someone on the panel does not feel challenged by its content. I’m ready to write laws. We continue to be sold out by the people we most depend on. Lastly, will someone please tell Hillary to run for President?
