Casual Friday VI

How Are We Feeling? ImPeachy, Thanks! Via Wonkette, TPM Cafe highlights an opinion poll showing that roughly half of America favors impeachment proceedings against Bush and Cheney. Among all adults, 45% favor impeachment proceedings against the President, and a full 54% favor proceedings against the Vice President. Maybe we’ll get our first woman president sooner than we thought. Pelosi ’07!

Law Law Law, I Can’t Heeeear Yooou! A man is seeking damages after failing the Massachusetts bar exam because it included “a ‘morally repugnant and patently offensive’ question addressing the rights of two married lesbians, their children and their property. He said he refused to answer the question because he believed it legitimized same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting, which is contrary to his moral beliefs.” Sorry dude, but if it seems like the question legitimizes same-sex marriage, it might be because it is, in fact, legit in the state in which you chose to take the bar exam.

If We Institute Universal Healthcare, The Terrorists Win. Think Progress has a hilarious screen capture from Fox News with the headline “NATIONAL HEALTHCARE: BREEDING GROUND FOR TERROR?” If this idiotic chicanery is their best argument against universal healthcare, I think we’re in good shape.

This Blog Is Not Appropriate For Minors. I don’t make much use of curse words on this blog, partly because my mom reads it and partly because it’s more fun to use phrases like “idiotic chicanery” instead of “total bullshit.” And yet, if this blog was a film it would be rated NC-17, according to this ratings website. Why? “This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words: gay (5x) gays (2x) drugs (1x).” Oh come on. Really? Gays and drugs are barely PG these days. The site’s algorithm is clearly fucked up. Oops! For a fascinating and unvarnished law review article on obscenity, go here. Hat tip to the Federalist Society of Mercer University School of Law; they may be a part of the VRWC, but they have a sense of humor.

Below the jump, the latest Toast:
