Okay, here‘s the most giggle-inducing editorial in recent memory, on the Department of Health and Human Service’s recent laughable abstinence-only program for…

…wait for it…

…all adults under the age of 30. I’ll give you a minute to stop laughing and wipe the coffee off your monitor.

But here’s the thing — wasn’t abstinence a major theme in Orwell’s 1984? Ah, yes, here we go…from the Wikipedia entry on 1984:

“The Party imposes anti-eroticism on its members (sponsoring the Junior Anti-Sex League, etc.), since sexual attachments might diminish exclusive loyalty to the Party.”

Well, there you have it. The Republican Party is hereby officially dubbed the Big Brother Party of No Fun. Of course, we’ve suspected as much along, but it’s always nice to have official confirmation of these things.
