This week’s Kick Ass Thursday was hosted by FemDems, The University of Michigan College Democrat’s women’s issues committees. We presented information about sex education and had a comprehensive presentation on safe sex practices from a couple of Planned Parenthood certified educators. Whether you missed this week’s meeting, or just want to share with your friends, here are some links to check out for safe sex information:
+ Bad Sex Ed- A Tumblr giving people a forum to expose their bad sex education experiences.
+ Bristol Palin and The Situation talk abstinence and safe sex practices (sort of):
+ Primetime reveals a stark contrast between comprehensive and abstinence-only sex education programs:
+Scarleteen- a grassroots site providing sex education and advice to young adults
+ Dan Savage – America’s leading sex and relationship advice columnist and podcaster
+ University Health Services’ guide to safe sex practices and on campus resources
“I think there are a lot of people in the Republican caucus who are glad to see this action taken without their fingerprints, without their participation,”
~ Senator Arlen Specter quoted in HuffPo.Â Specter describes how several Republicans approached him and thanked him for taking a stand in support of the stimulus package. Specter than asked them if they would stand with him in support – each one told him that they could not… they had a tough primary ahead of them.
Way to be the part of weak wills and irrelevance.
Here is a great video encapsulating the Republican Party’s current lack of leadership:
I do not want to seem like I am stepping on Ariel’s toes with posting this video. I found this on the Kanye West blog. I do not know what the message is. I do not know why it was made. I just know that this embodies many things I love about The World, The United States of America, and Kanye West.
If any of you have been following the Bernie Madoff scandal then you know that he was able to steal billions of dollars from a wide range of businesses and charities. Most prominent in theseÂ were Jewish charities that entrusted their money to Madoff – only to fall victim to his Ponzi scheme.
Well, in response this video was created to remind everyone that Rahm Emanuel is still the great hope.
We showed this video at our rally on the eve of the election. Governor Granholm was in attendance, as well as hundreds of students as we rallied together one last time before the historic day.

Okay, so I don’t usually read any of the three e-mails that Moveon sends me….
But this one at first really freaked me out.Â
Â I tried to change the name in it to U of M students but it wouldn’t e-mail the copy.
But yeah, they sent me a free Obama t-shirt the other day (like seriously, I didn’t even have to pay for shipping and its totally my size) so I decided I’ll read those damn e-mails since I haven’t actually volunteered with them anyways.
You have to wonder if this man is auditioningÂ for a segment on DemTV… although these editing skills remind me of my 11th grade spanish video wherein we made guacamole and made a TV advertisement for it… in bad spanish.
Makes you wonder if they rented their camera from the Library of Congress.
I really like how they tack on a Wayne’s World clip at the end. Adding that to this video doesn’t seem ironic or funny, which I think the McCain was going for, instead it just punctuates that their campaign is simply not worthy.
P.S. ABC News went and counted the number of young, white women featured in this video… four. Flashbacks to Harold Ford.
Update: McCain campaign took down the old video and replaced it with a version that is nearly identical except that they cut out the Wayne’s World homage at the end. Copyright infringement or just trying to cover stupidity tracks?
