Creeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeppppyyyyy: Thompson Edition

I don't use a diaphragm, and I never have. So I can't say with any certainty. But, what in the hell is that girl chewing on? I did some checking and it seems that the larger sizes can be about 4" in diameter. Could it really be?

Let's just say that even if it's not, would you put your child on tv with some household object in her mouth? Like a turkey baster or swiffer sweeper? No, you would not.

My guess is that it is not her mommy's diaphragm. My guess is it is a 'one size fits all' diaphragm daddy keeps in his jacket pocket just in case the barrista at the Foggy Bottom Starbucks is particularly hot today. My 2 centivos.

I confess to not watching this entire video. I stopped right where Hannity asks Mrs. Thompson if she is going to get involved in the campaign like other candidates' wives and she says 'to what? attack Hillary?' d. u. m.

juss wondering?

well. i actually did watch. the entire thing. now that i am done puking, having cleaned myself (and keyboard)up, drank a little ginger ale and so forth, let me comment.

first of all, being my age, i can tell you that i have used a diaphragm. as i was but 20 at the time (and dating the future mr he is no less!)mine was, um... smaller. considerably smaller. say espresso sized cup as opposed that venti the kid was sucking on.

shit. i puked again. sorry. i better go down to the genius bar to get this mac worked on after all this hurl.

i digress. so the whole thing was very disturbing at many levels, which was clear from the big rubbery beginning.

also i am concerned because hannity is such a good f*cking catholic- how can he allow birth control devices on his show?!

i am obsessed with jeri's very bad hairdo's and color jobs. i may need to do a photo blog post about this. it is awful. they gots cash money- and dc is awash in hairdressers. (just ask larry craig) wtf?

she went off on some crazy ass tangents about burkas and so forth.

he tells us that he is "right with the good lord" or something like that.

these people are crazy. can't wait to see fred and rudy "masterdebating" tonight.

oh no, i shouldn't have had that ginger a...........

too late.

FranIAm said...

for the record, as a good f*cking catholic myself (read the change of tone)i have used various birth control methods over the years. i feel like i am "right with the good lord" just like fred.

of course, if i was already in trouble with jesus for f*cking, then the use of birth control was just icing on the sin cake. buttercream icing.

at 49 my favorite new birth control is called "i am finally getting too old to have a baby! yippee!!"

Wow, I'm just glad I can't view video on my work computer. I'm feeling queasy just reading about this. But Fran's comments (esp the hair-related ones) pepped me right up!

Whiskeymarie said...

Fred creeped me out on Law & Order and he creeps me out here.
I can't think about the "diaphragm" because that would mean I have to think about the Fredster gettin' down & dirty.
Eew, I think I have to join Fran on this one...puke.

Jess Wundrun said...

Imagine how badly Fred wants to knock boots with the lights on and how badly Jeri needs to keep the lights off.

Mein Gott! It's no frisbee.

While I have no personal personal experience of a diaphragm, I can confirm that they are available in various sizes and if one falls far from average, a special order is in order. I learned that when a friend told me she needed an extra small; I presume larger sizes are similarly available.

FranIAm said...

I am wondering if the iSplotchy will replace the diaphragm as a birth control device?

Just wondering...

That iSplotchy is incredible. Wonder if this will be the next Jobs presentation on it.

BAC said...

The diaphragm comment is certainly appropriate, and did make me laugh. I watched the entire video, and was actually struck by Jeri's comments. Instead of going the route that Hannity wanted her to -- to bash Hillary -- she chose instead to stand up for women in Iraq and Iran. I thought it was very good!


Dr. Zaius said...

It sure looks like a diaphram to me. I think that despite the fact that Thompson is the last to enter the race, he will probably be one of the first to drop out. He is about as exciting as cold oatmeal.

Jess Wundrun said...

bac Actually, I was a little bothered by her comments. Not that they aren't true, but there is a certain meme going around in conservative women's circles about how one of the reasons we need to be hatin' on the Iraqis and the Iranians (and all muslims) is their treatment of women. It is subtle but it is indeed another of the drumbeats of war. Yes, religious fundamentalists of all stripes have a horrendous record on women's issues. I doubt Jeri wanted to talk about the reintroduction of the burkha in Iraq. If pressed I am most certain she would not want to discuss how badly women's rights have eroded in Iraq since the freedoms women had under Saddam. (Glad we got rid of those rape rooms, eh?) Had she wanted to discuss American women's issues - children's healthcare, domestic abuse, job training, breast cancer research, anything! I'd have thought she was more sincere.

Remember when Bush brought up Dred Scott when talking about abortion? To me her comments were creepy like that. Like she opened her mouth and a trope fell out.

Last year there was a lot of criticism of NOW by these rightie women for not doing enough for muslim women. There was an author who was a protege of Theodore Van Gogh and NOW didn't promote her book. This was the flap, for real. As if, thanks to the neocons in power, NOW doesn't have its hands full with our own issues. In many ways it was exactly like the cartoon dust-up. These societies repress women and free speech. But what exactly are we supposed to do? Sanctions? Excellent, let's start with Saudi Arabia, shall we?

Dinglebert Humperdumper said...

I think the most impressive thing about this guy who farts dust and feeds his great-grand-daughter elephant contraceptives is that he's married to a woman who wasn't born until after he'd grown his third chin.

He's lookin' pretty Presidential, non?

BAC said...

Jess, I think that anytime anyone talks about women's issues it's a good thing -- because women are so invisible to most of the world.

As for NOW, it's suffered from a crisis in leadership for more than a decade now. And this comment is coming from someone who has been a loyal NOW member for 20 years. I sometimes wonder if the organization will recover.

One would think that under a Bush administration, and all the Supreme Court appointments, NOW's membership would be flourishing ... but it has dropped considerably (and consistently) over the past 10 years. The sad part is, the membership doesn't seem to realize the problem -- and it drives away much of the talent it has.

And as for attacks from conservative women, what have THEY done to help women in Iraq? They need to look in the mirror before pointing a finger at anyone else.
