Also, Amanda’s got some links up about voter fraud and directs us to Voter Video, in which those with video cameras are urged to catch Republicans challenging others’ rights to vote at polling stations. She’s also got up some thoughts on women, food, and anxiety, as does Hugo. I might post later about this one.
I also recommend: In My Arms, a web gallery of pulp magazine covers/comics, video clips, et al of men, monsters, and robots carrying women (there’s even a shot of supergirl carrying a woman). A fascinating cultural image.
And here’s a very good article about Bush’s bizarre Dred Scott statement in the Kerry/Bush debates. Yea, it was code for Roe vs. Wade (Bush intends to erode it), but if you take the pres. at his word, that the judges in the Dred Scott case were acting on matters of “personal opinion” and weren’t “strict constructionists” – you’d be wrong. The Constitution of the United States of America allows slavery. Slaves weren’t real people. These guys were about as strict on the constructionism as they could be. Check it out.
