Jon Stewart: The vagina ideologues

Jon Stewart reports on Michigan Democrat Lisa Brown's response to proposed Republican legislation on abortion. Brown remarks: "I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no." Stewart noted it was a good vagina zinger, which "by the way is my favorite Celestial tea." In response the tight-assed, repressed Republicans barred her from speaking on the floor. Stewart asks what are they afraid of. "Vaginas aren't like Voldemort or Beetlejuice. Invoking the name 'vagina' doesn't make them suddenly appear. Believe me, if it did, high school would have been very different for me.... I don't know what MI is so uptight about; it's a State that is basically fisting the Great Lakes."

In response Lisa Brown performed The Vagina Monologues on the Statehouse steps yesterday. The play was billed as "Vaginas Take Back the Capitol!" Eve Ensler, creator of the play, was in attendance and helped with the performance. Ensler said: "If we ever knew deep in our hearts that the issue about abortion ... was not really about fetuses and babies, but really men's terror of women's sexuality and power, I think it's fully evidenced here. We're talking about the silencing of women, we're talking about censoring people for saying a body part. Half of these people who are trying to regulate vaginas, they can't even say the word."

Yes, these repressed (old, fat, ugly) white men are afraid of vaginas, and hence their latent homosexuality and need to legislate gays too.
