Warm Greetings To Debbie Schlussel

Codemorse would like to welcome conservative commentator Debbie Schlussel to our humble corner of the internet.

ISP UUNET Technologies
Continent: North America
United States (Facts)
State: Michigan
City: Detroit

We invite Ms. Schlussel to take advantage of our comments section and attempt a defense of her opinions on AIDS and gays. Despite our obviously snarky tone in prior posts, Codemorse stands by its commitment to open, intelligent debate.

Should you choose to comment, Ms. Schlussel, your remarks will not be altered or deleted. Your opinion - prejudiced as it appears - will be tolerated and preserved, even if (or, more accurately, especially when) it's an opinion that our contributors disagree with.

The floor is yours, Ms. Schlussel. Explain yourself, if you feel so motivated. What is it that bothers you so much about gay people? Why would you eliminate hard data from your comments section that contradicts your opinions - without explanation or serious provocation?


Ms. Schlussel continues to amuse. Her recent musings on weddings:

Yet another development in the blurring of the sexes and the feminization of America's men. It used to be that a wedding was the bride's domain. She planned everything (or is lazy and hires a planner), and the groom just showed up in his tux. No more.

Today's USA Today reports that more grooms are getting involved in planing weddings. There are even books for grooms in how to plan a wedding: "The Knot Guide for the Groom" and "Well Groomed: A Wedding Planner for What's-His-Name(and His Bride)."

Guys picking dresses and bridesmaid outfits, flowers, and cake flavors. Come on. What is this--"Brokeback Wedding"?

Get it? "Brokeback Wedding!" Because being involved in planning your wedding is GAY!

Also "Gay":
- Artsy types
- Kids with long hair
- Caring about things
- Compassion
- Puppies
- Gouda Cheese
- People who are different from you
Since many bachelorette parties are trending toward the antics and behavior of bachelor parties, it's hard to tell, these days, whether it's the groom or the bride who wears the pants in the relationship.

Would that we could return to those halcyon days of yore; when the question of just who wore the figurative-pants around here was perfectly clear.

Where are the Real Men? The ones who leave the entirety of an absurdly-overswollen event to their fiances? The ones who'd rather play golf than participate in what is, assuredly, the most anticipated day of their fiance's life?

I agree with her. Gender roles have gotten completely out of hand.

So, why doesn't she get back in the kitchen and fix us a chicken pot pie and leave the man talk to THE MEN?

Wow...I'm no fan of Ms. Schlussel's inability to deal with dissent, but perhaps "debbie schlussels aborted foetus" is a bit...much?

Still, dsaf brings up a good point- why isn't Ms. Schlussel at home birthin' babies, as per her notions of feminism, as opposed to doing "butch" stuff like going undercover as a blonde Muslim(!)?

The obvious answer to code's question is that she's a hypocrite and a fraud. Another shining example of her overwhelming ineptitude at logical debate.

Logic, sadly, has never been a prerequisite for punditry.

In fact, were pundits (Left or Right) required to be logical, they most likely couldn't do their jobs "effectively."

Jill, we'd love to hear your thoughts elsewhere on our blog whenever you care to share them. We're always looking for strong opinions, preferably girded with reason.

It's the use of the less-traditional "foetus" that really pounds it home...

This chick is hilariously mocked by Stern & Co. on a regular basis. Good to know she's really that dumb 24/7. It's entertaining.

...and now I'm hungry for Chicken Pot Pie...oh, Little Debbie...?!?!?

I've heard that Stern enjoys roasting her. Would that he still resided at KRock, and not Sirius.

I'd love to hear him take her down, Stern-style.

What's funny is she seems oblivious to it. Cause you now how subtle Howard and Artie are.
