Media + pregnancy = INSANITY

Perhaps I should not be allowed to watch television these days (though with my delicate [read: NAUSEATED] condition, I can't seem to do much else). I cannot be trusted to watch or read ANYTHING right now without becoming weepy, enraged, terrified or all three at once.

The Let California Ring commercial? Big sloppy wet tears. May we all know true love and commitment.

Oprah- If she isn't covering child predators (F you very much for the new insomnia fodder, Oprah), she's covering "dry drowning". Zoe will never swim or play in or near a pool EVER AGAIN.

I'm a crazy person lately about political coverage and have to stop reading it all. Smallest deal but the one that's sticking in my hormonal craw: mention of Gov. Palin as"anti-abortion". WE ARE ALL ANTI-ABORTION, PEOPLE. Do you really think pro-choice people sit around like "yay for abortion!"?!?! Abortion is a choice that women feel compelled to make for many reasons and we all should work together to make them safe, legal and rare. The difference between those of us who are for and against the RIGHT to an abortion is just how safe and legal it should be. Can we all just agree that rare is every one's goal? And that maybe reasonably appropriate sex education can help us meet that goal?? (Oy. Don't get me started. Please excuse me while I wipe the foam from my mouth.)

And then Catherine Newman has to go and make me sob, like only she can. Apparently it's not even safe for me to read blogs at the moment.

But it's a good kind of insanity though, right? Enjoy it as much as you can.

I can't STAND Palin. Every time I see one of the few McCain signs out in the yards around here, I want to put up another sign next to it that says, 'Want a Baby? Rape my daughter! She'll have one for you!' It's mean-spirited, I know, but it sickens me. I realize she's 'only' the veep nominee, but look what kind of trouble Cheney's gotten us into, and McCain's been a little... weak-minded lately in the influence camp. PLUS, it's not like he's gonna live forever... sigh.
