And no, that’s not a joke.

Update: From Mnemosyne in comments:

Since I’ve been complaining about nutty websites, let me today point out that TalkLeft has returned to sanity and both Jeralyn and Big Tent Democrat have posted that they will support Obama wholeheartedly now that Clinton has officially suspended her campaign.

Exactly as Jeralyn said they would, and good for them.

The Feminist Survival Guide To Book Salons

By Amanda Marcotte

At 5PM EST, 4PM Central, Firedoglake will be hosting a book salon for my book It’s a Jungle Out There: The Feminist Survival Guide to Politically Inhospitable Environments. Sara Robinson from Group News Blog and Orcinus will be hosting. Both Sara and I will be on hand to answer questions, spur discussion, and just feminist up the joint. Should be fun. I’d be much obliged if Pandagon readers could come by and ask some questions/join…

National Screw On Contraception Day

By Amanda Marcotte

Mighty Ponygirl has declared it National Screw While On Contraception Day. Yes, even if you’re “trying”. Or you’re in a committed and tested relationship that’s not running the risk of the big knock-up because you’re gay or sterilized or pregnant or post-menopausal or whatever. You don’t even need a partner.…


The Plural Of Anecdote Is Conservatism

By Jesse Taylor

Patterico’s Pontifications notices that unemployment rates for those ages 16-24 have risen much faster than those for other age groups, and that said rise probably has a lot to do with that age group entering the market for summer work. For that bit of correctitude, the author gets a cookie.…


The Internet Has Been Won

By Jesse Taylor

The McCain campaign sends out “The McCain Update” every Friday night, a source of bemusement to me for no other reason than that in politics, Friday nights are when you do things you don’t want anybody to see. This week’s update is headed by a “strategy briefing” from their campaign…


Funny ladies write funny books

A couple of book reviews tonight for some short, funny books. First of all, Jen Sorensen’s cartoon collection Slowpoke: One Nation, Oh My God!. I met Jen at the WAM! conference, and I have to say that the arch humor she showcases in her comics is exactly how she acts…


Last Day at the LA Times

By Amanda Marcotte

That was fun! The last day, Katha and I talk about movies about child-bearing and how boring it is to cram women into such traditional roles.…


Luckily, brothels are “just for guys”

By Amanda Marcotte

There’s a new magazine out that’s pretending to be a general interest teenage magazine, but is actually an abstinence-only propaganda rag. Guess what it’s called? That’s right. Abstinence: It’s just for girls. I know the law makes them say otherwise when they’re peddling this shit in the classroom, but it’s…
