nature in the debate

The health care clash, like American politics, remains rooted in our mommy and daddy political parties.

Our political parties are ‘maternal’ and ‘paternal’?

See, the Democrat Party is the Mommy Party because it projects “warmth.” And the Republican Party is the Daddy Party because it leaves work early to have anonymous sex, drives home blind drunk, knocks over the neighbors’ mailboxes, yells at the kids for dressing like sluts and fags, kicks the dog, sexually harasses the undocumented Guatemalan housekeeper, and spends the rest of the night blogging on the Decline of Civility.

I’m exaggerating, of course. In reality, the Daddy Party just wants to keep us safe from immigrants and taxes and Mohammedanism and socialized medicine and gay sex and Hollywood and stuff like that.
