    Welcome back Tacie!!! Great podcast as usual!

  2. Renee Says:

    Wow, I can’t believe there aren’t more comments on this one because as I was listening, I wanted to argue back many times!

    But I don’t have a lot of computer time right now, so I can only contribute this vitally important correction:

    Justin Bieber is not dating Zack Ephron’s girlfriend: that’s Vanessa Hudgens. Justin is dating Selena Gomez, of the feature film Ramona and Beezus and the classic television series The Wizards of Waverly Place.

    I’ll be back with lots more petty, womanly thoughts tomorrow or the next day.

    (By the way, great job, Tacie! And love you, Eric, even if you’re wrong, wrong, wrong!)

    Goodness. Ya’ll do sure keep your fact checker hard at work! πŸ˜‰

    First of all, the whole “Santorum” thing … it’s a neologism. Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santorum_%28neologism%29

    In short (and this is from the article linked above): “To demonstrate opposition to Rick Santorum in particular and anti-gay politics in general, [American advice columnist Dan] Savage requested that his readers suggest a new definition for ‘santorum’ in his column Savage Love, and announced the winning definition to be ‘the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex’.”

    Interesting (and clever!), but not exactly on the same page as our dear friends Merriam and Webster, yes?

    THANK YOU, Eric, for saying what I’ve been telling my husband for a LONG ASS TIME NOW, about how Fox is expert at finding attractive “experts.” THEY SO ARE. And the use of air quotes is SO RIGHT.

    Here’s the poop (so to speak) on milquetoast: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milquetoast (And Merriam and Webster back ’em up: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/milquetoast) It is, for those who don’t want to follow links, “a timid, meek, or unassertive person” (courtesy of the latter link).

    I had totally forgotten about Milquetoast the Cockroach, though, so in accordance with Tacie’s experience in LA, I mention it and include the Wikipedia link for reference. πŸ™‚

    For Tacie, about registering for the draft: http://www.militarydraftregistration.com/?gclid=CMDY5IGwsakCFQHsKgodVnS6MA

    Basically, Eric was right on that one.

    Hmm, what else? Oh, “women and children first” … apparently, a saying popularized some years prior to the Titanic sinking, but thereafter strongly associated with the sinking of the Titanic and loss of life there. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_and_children_first_%28saying%29).

    Biologically speaking, you need fewer males than females to maintain diversity of a group. A male can more easily diversify the spread of his genes … okay, to avoid sounding like a textbook, lemme put it this way: man can go screw 20 women in 20 days, if he so chooses, and if the timing’s right, he’ll end up with 20 kids nine months later. But a woman, no matter how many men she has sex with in 20 days, is going to end up with just one kid (yeah, yeah, multiple births, but the man can count those, too). So, there’s my non-backed-up input on why “women and children first” makes some sense.

    As for women past childbearing age, well. You want to tell Joe the Plumber you didn’t think his mama was worth saving ’cause her uterus wasn’t “all that” anymore? I didn’t think so.

    (I know. Whatever. Bear with me. It’s all I’ve got for a sense of humor.)

    OH OH OH. People DO go off on Hillary, are you kidding me? Rush Limbaugh was the LEAST of conservatives to rip her a hole and a half (and he’s probably still doing it). That poor woman couldn’t catch a break to save her life, whether you think she’s attractive or not!

    As for women candidates being unelectable by women, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I don’t give a shit if the woman is a fucking beauty queen, is she honest? Intelligent? Willing to hold her own religious beliefs apart from her politics? Basically, give me a good candidate. PLEASE. I don’t care what gender, religion, creed, HOW MANY TATTOOS, how much weed they smoked when they were younger, etc … just give me a GOOD. CANDIDATE.

    (Problem is, I tend to believe that the people who would be the best elected officials? Those people are too damn smart to run for office in the first place.)

    But I digress.

    Meh. This is long enough … maybe I’ll catch you later, after RenΓ©e runs you through the wringer. πŸ˜‰

    Great podcast! The second half especially, you guys were ON A ROLL!

    Love from Lipstick Lady

    I must agree with Lipstick on this one, first off, this podcast SUCKED the first half. I was going to turn it off, but my loyalty to Eric kept me going, and I’m glad I did. FUCK YOU Eric and your views about women! Women aren’t petty, at least I’m not (other women certainly can be especially when a woman is attractive and smart, which your girl Sarah Palin certainly is not). Tacie has a bright future in being Joanna’s replacement, but not just yet. Joanna takes Eric’s jabs with far more shock than Tacie does. Good job, and I hope that joanna gets better. I miss her!

  5. Renee Says:

    Okay! I’m back!

    I’m a democrat and during the last election I voted for Obama in the primaries. Someone asked me who I was voting for and when I said Obama, they said, “I thought you were a feminist! Why aren’t you voting for Hilary?” I said, “It’s because I’m a feminist that I can vote for who I think will do the best job. It has nothing to do with whether they are male or female.”

    As for Sarah Palin, I disagree with her politically, so that’s why I wouldn’t vote for her. Her persona irritates me because I think it’s a big part of what’s wrong with American politics today. Too much shallow rah, rah go U.S.A. and an almost disdain for thoughtful discourse and trying to compromise and work together with the other side. She says so many dumb things, and really doesn’t seem to be up to the task. It’s not that she’s pretty and looks like Tina Fey. It’s that she has her own reality show and doesn’t know the basic details of Paul Revere’s ride! http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504943_162-20069360-10391715.html

    I can’t believe more people haven’t commented on this podcast! First off, Love Tacie, Joanna and Jeremy. Second, RIGHT THE FUCK ON Eric! Why DO men have to achieve a higher standard NOW in 2011?! And all you women out there hate Palin because she’s hot, don’t mess with the player girls, I know! Eric you sounded a little gay in this podcast, your gay twang has returned!!! LOLOLOLOL! FIght on for MEN!

  7. wyo Says:

    Okay, the DTs from Eric withdrawal are getting pretty awful, I just wanted you to know.

    (I feel guilty complaining, because my own blog is sadly neglected, but then I thought, fuck it, *I* don’t have the following Eric does, and besides, I don’t have his MELODIOUS VOICE!)

    Anyway, FTR, I’m listening to old podcasts because I CAN’T TAKE ANOTHER DAY WITHOUT YOU, ERIC!

    (Just sayin’.)
