  1. Why is it when days are as hot as today, everything seems to move as slow as a Dali painting?

    Those are fabulous cartoons. I love the expression on the elephant with the “mission accomplished” banner all ready for the party that never happens.

    For DAK — your nutjob Governor opened his mouth again — trying to be the dumbest to Mittens dumber:

      I saw that earlier … he’s screwing us over for his national political career. Our state really needs that program. We have some really poor people down here; including me.

  6. dakinikat says:

    Well, I just know we can blame all this bad weather on Obama … or maybe it’s Gay marriage pissing off gawd again … check with Pat Robertson

  7. Beata says:

    Great cartoons, JJ. I like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide.

    It’s been about 105 degrees here the past few days. I’m dreaming of winter.

  8. bostonboomer says:

    Rape victim can sue after being arrested and denied contraception.

    The victim, who is only identified as R.W. in court records, visited Tampa’s Rape Crisis Center on Jan. 27, 2007 where a “rape kit” procedure was performed and she was given two contraception pills. The doctor instructed her to take one pill immediately and the second one 12 hours later.

    R.W. then reported her rape to Tampa police and was arrested after it was discovered she was wanted for failure to appear and failure to pay restitution on a previous charge.

    When R.W. requested her second contraception pill the next morning, Hillsborough County Jail employee Michele Spinelli refused on religious grounds.

    “Spinelli told the Plaintiff that she would not give R.W. the pill because it was against Spinelli’s religious beliefs,” a complaint (PDF) filed in United States District Court Tampa Division states.

    • dakinikat says:

      Yes … violating some one else’s religious views because of yours should be actionable!

    • These stories about “religious beliefs” are really pissing me off.

      All the moves and excuses to force the right’s beliefs on everyone should be seen in a historical perspective. After seeing women used in so many historic items of propaganda while at those history museums in DC it makes me want to scream. You know, Hitler was in every woman’s uterus too…I know it is an extreme leap…but I am just saying.

      • northwestrain says:

        No that isn’t a leap at all.

        Totalitarian governments and churches will do what ever it takes to control women — this seems to be a patriarchal thing. Hitler’s Germany — the Fatherland.

        Isn’t it ironic – a woman gets raped and then put in jail where the probability is high that she will be assaulted while in jail. And she was assaulted — but a religious nutjob.
