Doing My Part

I'm pregnant with baby #3 and apparently that is doing my part to oppress the liberals.

You people are all alike.

Well, you know conservatives breed like rabbits because we aren't smart enough or sophisticated enough to know about birth control.

It's certainly my excuse.

You go, girl! Well, not just YOU, of course, no matter what femi-Nazis wish for... ;-)

The liberals don't seem to have a problem aborting their future voters!

Oddly, Angie, they don't seem to have made the connection between the two.

And certain segments of Orthodox Jewry fit the fertility curve as well. Between my four married cousins (all to the right of me on the religious scale) they have 20 kids. And if you head back to my hometown of Brooklyn, NY, it's relatively easy to find families with 8 and more kids.

James Taranto over at calls this the Rowe effect.

Proud to do my part also with bringing up these 8 or ours too. Hey, forget the birth control...maybe conservatives are just more, uh, appealing to one another?!??!

Melissa, shaving and bathing do tend to be appealling qualities that some on the Left eschew, but of course, I know plenty on that side who do still know how to bathe -- and I have a liberal friend with four kids, so it doesn't always work.
