ANN ALTHOUSE: Why does Markos Moulitsas think oral sex is some kind of vice? “Shouldn’t a liberal be more accepting of various sexual practices?” I, on the other hand, am on the record as being proudly pro-sodomy. (Which makes me pretty unusual, judging from Google. Who knew?) [LATER: From the comments: “See, the vice? Not so bad. But a vise? Yes, painful painful.”]

Plus, What the hell’s wrong with Pat Robertson?

UPDATE: Robertson video. Plus this: “He may be a crank, but he’s consistent in his crankery. Anywhere there’s human misery — after 9/11, after Katrina, even after Ariel Sharon’s stroke — Reverend Pat will be there to explain to the victims why they deserved it. . . . According to the Harry Reid standard, shouldn’t Robertson’s charitable works absolve him from any and all offensive utterances?”


It seems that Robertson has learned nothing from the outcry generated by his 2001 comments endorsing Jerry Falwell’s claim that the 9/11 attacks were a punishment that God inflicted on America because of “the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, [and] People For the American Way.” . . . As a fellow Yale Law School graduate, I’d have to say that the Reverend Robertson isn’t one of our alma mater’s more impressive products.
