Casual Friday V


There Are Republicans in DC? Invoking Lincoln, the District of Columbia Republican Committee urged GOP Senators to back the District of Columbia House Voting Rights Act of 2007. Supporters have indicated that they do not yet have 60 votes to guard against a filibuster. If need be, DC Vote should feel free to use the adorable LOLdistrict graphic above. Who can resist this meme? Nobody. SRSLY!

Fun With Romney and Family! From the Boston Globe: “As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ‘Dad!’ he yelled. ‘Gross!’ A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who’d been riding on the roof in the wind for hours.” Mitt Romney’s response to this situation is supposed to exemplify his crisis management skills. I’m not sure what it says about his crisis prevention skills.

Betroth Me, Baby. Via Andrew Sullivan, some Catholic theologians are reconsidering the premarital sex ban in light of Catholic practices from the 13th and 14th centuries, when a betrothal was enough. But lest you think they’re okaying sex after a mere marriage proposal, they propose “a modern-day betrothal, marked by a public ceremony in which the man and woman agree to marry in the future.” The wedding industrial complex should pounce on this idea!
