    Homeopathic vodka = amazing. And Breasts sounds like a very interesting read; thanks for sharing!

    Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson should be the front man for the Romney campaign.

      If that happened Romney would stand no chance of winning. Its completely outside the American mainstream to even suggest that women shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

    Having read more about Rever End Peterson than I ever, ever wanted to know, I will now have a well earned shot of vodka…the real stuff that is, not that homeopathic swill.

    As an atheist, I’m really interested in those capsules containing powdered dead babies. Makes my daily helping of baby much easier to consume. How do I get my hands on some?

    Holy war on women!

    That guy is a crazy misogynist.

    Goodbye women’s vote assholes.

    Oh come on, Amanda, the Reverend did say that a FEW of us women are logical, but clearly the rest of us should be tied to a bed making babies. I think that’s perfectly reasonable, don’t you?

    (Honestly I think this guy is what Newt Gingrich’s moon colony should be used for).

    I prefer “dead baby pills.”

    Also I saw this on Russia Today first so I was kind of surprised when normal news outlets started covering it.

    The Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson really ought to be ashamed of himself, even through we practically know that he won’t be.

    I think really have to hand to Kirsten Powers through for standing up to him and calling out his misogyny. At least someone, even someone who works for FOX news of all things, to him to task for it. I don’t know much about her, or her political views in general, but I think we have to give her credit in this instance.

    How does that Rev. Peterson guy function as a human being? What sort of fantasy land is he living in?

    Pills with powdered human flesh? Wasn’t there a movie about that that warned “Soylent Green is people!”

    Talk about life imitating art.

    I really liked the bit about potentizing the .pdf’s containing the magical Vodka essence by tapping 10 times on your screen before you print them on the sticky labels.

    Maybe Peterson accidentally made 30C Vodka from 30C Vodka instead of tap water? That might explain his bat shit insanity. … Nah, he’s just a dick.
