The Icky Amendment

On today’s #TWiBRadio, Rick Ross wants women to know that they misunderstood him. He didn’t mean rape, he just meant drugging a woman and having sex with her without her consent. Which is rape.

Then we’re joined by Olivia St. Clair, resident TWiB ‘Ratchet-Ass’ lawyer who bent our brains into logic pretzels while explaining the legal rationale behind DOMA, Prop 8, and the potential outcome of the SCOTUS decisions.

Seriously, we’re just describing rape now.

Leave it to Rapist

The News Director Vlae Kershner at the San Francisco Chronicle thought it would be a good idea to compare Trent Mays, one of the teens who raped a girl in Steubenville last summer, to lovable scamp Eddie Haskell from Leave it to Beaver.

Fans of classic TV will remember Eddie Haskell from “Leave It To Beaver”. Making mischief, getting his friends in trouble, sucking up to their parents as if he were the nicest boy who ever lived.
If the writers had cast Eddie as the bad guy in a crime show instead of a sitcom, he might have resembled Trent Mays. He’s one of two teenagers convicted in juvenile court Sunday of digital penetration (which in Ohio constitutes rape) of an intoxicated 16-year-old girl in Steubenville last August.

So a helpful way to understand how this boy raped a girl, we should consider a late-50s fictional television personality who modeled mischievous boyhood?

And Happy Birthday to the Affordable Care Act! According to Michelle Bachmann, it’s old enough to kill all the women, children, and old people.

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discuss how Republicans continue their #SayAnything2012 campaign, the legacy of Steubenville, and we take our listener feedback.
