Welcome to the Playpen, our space for ferrety banter and whimsical snippets of things that aren't quite long enough for articles (although they might be) but that caught your eye anyway.
I know I'd be absolutely heartbroken at having some screaming bigot refuse to speak to me ever again. I sure hope more Republicans don't start doing that!
Yeah. Unfortunately, bigots hate each other as much as everyone else does, which is why they're always looking for decent people to hang around.

Oh my god, it's a Republican porn site, isn't it?
I vow never to speak to them again for the rest of my life, or have any communications with them.

The good news is: We should be finished with Episode VI around then, and will be able to move smoothly on to parodying Episode VII. If the new movie sucks, we will redeem it. On the other hand, if the new movie is awesome, it will be awesome. You can't lose.
I can't argue with that.
I knew I was having a disproportionately annoyed response to the framing/consent thing, so it's nice to understand where that's coming from. I hope that with that understanding will come some sort of Zen acceptance, because I don't particularly enjoy feeling annoyed & unable to let the annoyance go! ;-)
