"If There Were a Woman President, There Would Never Be Any Wars, Never! Just Every 28 Days, Some Severe Negotiations"

News Item: Sally Field censored on Emmy telecast for stating that "if the mothers ruled the world, there would be no goddamned wars in the first place."

I refuse to touch this one, except to say that a mother (Hillary Clinton) may very well be our next president, and I'm virtually certain there'll be at least one war during her administration.

The title of this post, by the way, comes from a mid-1980s standup special by Robin Williams. My lord, has any comedian fallen further faster than him? I saw his movie, "Man of the Year," over the weekend, which was a thriller disguised as a liberal fantasy about Jon Stewart running for president- that is, if Stewart replaced his biting satire with old, stupid, and obvious jokes that everyone in the movie laughs at for no apparent reason. And in the last scene, there's even a joke that's lifted wholesale from... that very same Williams routine, from circa 1985.
