So, a little while? Six hours

I'm over at Kleinheider's making an ass of myself about abortion. I would have thought someone would have called me on the unfairness of claiming personal insult, but so far no one has. My best line?
As for your hysterical outrage about linking abortion, gay rights, and racial discrimination, I can barely bother to reply. If you can't see how those are all issues of bodily autonomy and self-determination, I can't help you. But really, we both know, you don't want my help. You want to win one for your side by putting an uppity liberal woman in her place. I only hope you'll begin to speak in your weird right-wing language like you did in this thread before this winds down. Once you start in with the "Californi-cating" and the "lezbo couples" and the "Helen Degenerate" (Is that a jab at both Ellen Degeneres and Helen Thomas?), it's a bit like watching a possessed man spewing forth in some foreign language.
So, go check it out, if you're bored this afternoon. [Edited to add that you should go check out Exador's comment. Or, shoot, I'll just reproduce it here:
Doesn't that show that just about everybody can agree that abortion is not a first choice for even the most pro-choicer? Can we agree that it's a difficult decision for any woman?
This, my friends, is why I think it's impossible to write off the libertarians. Sure, they swagger around all he-man like, and burb, and drink beer, and shoot things, but sometimes they just say things in a simple, elegant, and beautiful way and it makes me think that they're not as easily discountable as we'd like to believe (and that's not just because I agree with him).]

"Helen Degenerate" (Is that a jab at both Ellen Degeneres and Helen Thomas?)

I'm guessing Helen Reddy, you know, "I am woman", and all that.

Helen Reddy? Hmm. I guess that makes sense.

Still, I feel bad for Helen Thomas then. What's a woman got to do to get a little hate?

If it makes you feel better, I hate Helen Thomas.

She's a little commie troll.

When you spank me, will you call me your little commie troll? I think I'd find that rather hot.

As for Helen Thomas, I met her once--she came to our man-hating feminist lesbian witch coven once--and the weirdest thing about her was that she was dripping in diamonds. I mean every finger full of diamond rings, to the point where all you can do is just stare. She had bling before bling was bling.

No, I like Commie Minx.

I won't let you up until you say you love capitalism.

And the Patriarchy

So, let me get this straight... If I refuse to say I love capitalism and the patriarchy, I get to lay across you while you put your hand on my bottom.

And if I say I love capitalism and the patriarcy, you'll stop touching me.

What's my incentive for converting again?

Commie Minx--Okay, I might get that as a tattoo.

Sometimes people who call themselves Libertarians just turn out to be thoughtful human beings after all. Unaccountably attracted to labeling themselves, but thoughtful human beings nonetheless.

You're all talk and no ink. I tried to get you to go along with matching tattoos when you were in Atlanta and you chickened out.

I'm not getting "Moxie" tattooed on my ass. I don't care how cute you are and how charming your ways. There's not a man alive that can talk me into getting Moxie tattoed on my ass.

Now, "Commie Minx" that's a different story.
