Phyllis Schlafly: Social Security Sponge

According to actuarial tables, we may have to put up with this dessicated crone for another 8.76 years.  If we're lucky, much of that time will be spent mute and in piss-soaked diapers like her idol Ronald Reagan.

With apologies to Irving Berlin

"We’re quick on the trigger with targets not much bigger
Than a pen point, we’re number one.
But our score with the liberals is lower than a cellar-
Oh you can't disguise ignorant 

mean-spirited bigotry with a gun."

Vatican issues new sex abuse norms after crisis

VATICAN CITY – The Vatican issued a new set of norms Thursday to respond to the worldwide clerical abuse scandal, cracking down on priests who rape and molest minors and the mentally disabled.  The norms extend from 10 to 20 years the statute of limitations on priestly abuse and also codify for the first time that possessing or distributing child pornography is a canonical crime.  But the document made no mention of the need for bishops to report abuse to police and doesn't include any "one-strike and you're out" policy as demanded by some victims' groups.  The document also listed the attempted ordination of a woman as a "grave crime" to be handled by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, just as sex abuse is. Critics have complained that including both in the same document implied equating them.

"Wait, wait 'til you hear what she says next."

The Arizona governor, seemingly determined to repel every last tourist dollar from her pariah state, has sounded a new alarm about border violence. "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded," she announced on local television.

*Not even blogged--"Facebooked"  
Considering the intellectual content, it could have been Tweeted.

In her PJs perhaps?
