Sniffles and PETA
I still have an awful cold. Ava and C.I. flew out to DC today. They're slightly better. But I'm not. So I'm just going to hang around here for the week. I've got a shallow cough now so hopefully that means that I'm getting better.
You know that cough that's tiny and sounds like a fake one? That's me now. My nose isn't dripping anymore at least. And my fever's gone down. But I think I'll just stay home all week watching soap operas from the couch.
Meanwhile, as I recover, Jay Carney remains stupid.
The White House press secretary can't stop putting his stinky foot in his mouth. POLITICO quotes PETA sharing their outrage over Monday's press briefing:
“In watching last night's news briefing, we were upset to note that you flippantly addressed the recently approved repeal of the military ban on bestiality,” the group wrote in the letter to Carney. “With respect, this is no laughing matter. Our office has been flooded with calls from Americans who are upset that this ban has been repealed—and for good reason. As we outlined in the attached letter sent yesterday to the secretary of defense, animal abuse does not affect animals only—it is also a matter of public safety, as people who abuse animals very often go on to abuse human beings.”
