Of the two suicide cults America confronts, liberalism is by far the more lethal."

Life’s full of surprises. Here’s one from Time contributor and White House correspondent Nina Burleigh on the eminent myscoginst Bill Clinton:
“I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”
So what’s the big deal about feminists scurrying around in a burka ?
