Filling My Baby Daddy Void w/ le Gran Government Objet A

POV - The Menstrual Angst of the Single Female Voter

A Voice Within.

Io! Io!
Awake, ye damsels; hear my cry,
Calling my Chosen; hearken ye!

A Maiden.

Who speaketh? Oh, what echoes thus?

Another.

A Voice, a Voice, that calleth us!

The Voice.

Be of good cheer! Lo, it is I,
The Child of Zeus and SemelĂȘ.

A Maiden.

O Master, Master, it is Thou!

Another.

O Holy Voice, be with us now!

The Voice.

Spirit of the Chained Earthquake,
Hear my word; awake, awake!

- Euripides "The Bacchae"

from the Baltimore Sun
As if it weren't enough that Lena Dunham, the 26-year-old writing/directing/acting phenom who started a revolution this year with her HBO series "Girls," scored a $3.5-million book deal and has been granted the unofficial but unimpeachable title of "voice of her generation," she also appears to have won the presidential election — or at least to have been one of the driving forces behind the guy who did.

In a much-talked-about campaign video for the president, Ms. Dunham used her signature combination of cheeky irony and shocking forthrightness to compare first-time voting to first-time sex. "Your first time shouldn't be with just anybody," she says to her presumably young, presumably mostly female audience. "You want to do it with a great guy.... Someone who really cares about and understands women."

Though the video, which immediately went viral, sent some conservatives into convulsions, it also appears to have worked. As the exit polls showed, it was women, particularly single women, who were among the most instrumental in putting President Barack Obama over the top: 67 percent of them voted for him, according to an NBC exit poll.

----
From the womb all madness comes
ere it shines like the Sun
burning my skin
Mystery hounds my head into wilds
Where Jealous women Bleed death

Lost limbs!
How you midwife Abortion!
Io Hymenae!

Menstrual Song!
The song bleeds Madness
Through the hymen
Into e'ery hymn it flows
Song's blood severs my Head

Past the hymn, thoughtless, dead
We list in cloudy water

Yep! Blogger finally set their hostages free after the election!

I suppose a chunk of women voted with the wrong 'lady parts.'

Glad you didn't give up blogging FJ. Though I rarely relate very well to most of your musical selections. (Sorry 'bout that!)

Do tell us what "Blogger" did to you? I feel more and more censorshit is coming our way now that the electorate blithely sealed our doom, so please elucidate -- while you still can.

I'm sure The Oligarchs would LOVE to shut us all down and keep us isolated from one another as much as possible.

AOW has my email address. If you ever want to correspond privately I'd be glad to hear from you. I'm sure she'll share the information if you ask.

Again glad your absence was only temporary.

Nothing too egregious, FT. I was simply locked out of my account for a day as they "investigated my suspicious blogging activity" under the assumption I was a "spammer".

I have little doubt that I have likely been "reported" as such by certain "politically motivated" bloggers... but such is to be expected by certain elements within the petty "bore"gouisie. ;)
