Dear Miss Wendy,
I am a big fan of Big Love,
the HBO series about a Utah polygamist family.
In one of the scenes, a cult leader is writing to
the head of the Republican National Committee to
commend the Committee for opposing gay marriage
but strongly urging the committee not to use the
words "one man and one woman" in their
proposed Constitutional Amendment - The Defense
of Marriage Act. What is going on?
Miss Wendy has herself been perplexed
by the carryings-on in the Republican party about
this gay marriage business (they do seem
to talk about it quite a bit) and wonder why when
staunch Republican leaders have themselves been
married numerous times (Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani
three times apiece; Fred Thompson and John McCain
twice) they would not support the polygamist position
and oppose an amendment that defined marriage as
“a union of one man and one woman.”
At the very least they need to revise the phrasing
of the Defense of Marriage Act to add the words
"at any one time” and thus legitimize
their own practice of sequential polygamy.
Dear Miss Wendy,
Have you seen those commercials
where the nice looking black man takes Cialis so
he can “get it on” with his wife of
thirty years (who has obviously been working as
a model the entire time) only to have unexpected
visitors arrive? He then graciously entertains this
"company", knowing that he is good-to-go-for-up-to-twenty-four-hours
and "when the time is right, he will be...."
I find those commercials higly
annoying, especially the part where after their
unexpected visitors leave and before they actually
have sex, THEY GET INTO ANTIQUE BATH TUBS IN THE
MIDDLE OF A FIELD. Those bathtubs don’t look
sexy to me, they look cold. And if any woman can
be talked into having sex after putting up with
unwanted company all afternoon long and then freezing
to death in an unheated tub in the middle of a field,
that Cialis must be one powerful drug and that good
looking black man must be one silver-tongued devil.
