Before they can take on issues that really matter, right wingers need to get passed a number of issues: gay marriages, crèches on public property, banning of the saying “Happy Holidays,” and now flag burning.

So those of us in the reality-based world have to make some concessions and attack these issues one at a time. So here’s my draft of a proposed constitutional amendment:

Any woman who has given birth to one son MUST abort all subsequent pregnancies.

This way we get the wingers to accept abortion. I’m sorry, my gay friends, but look at it this way: If we reduce the number of men being born, we reduce the number of homophobes. Just a thought.
