"Mommy, what's a dildo?"

Ricky West points to this item from Jesse at Pandagon, allegedly "skewering" Brent Bozell:
Jesse drily observes: "note that Bozell's major problem out of assault, rape, murder by strangulation, and a dildo...is the dildo."
Clever, but willfully obtuse. Jesse knows very well that the battle against violence on the tube is lost just as Brent Bozell and the rest of us do. Dildos are still a bit of a novelty on TV and some of us would like to keep it that way.

You know, for all the fuss we hear about unwed mothers, there's something we could do for them without even getting off the couch. We could insist that TV stations, radio stations and others show some class in what they broadcast so Mom can get a little downtime once in a while while the media does the babysitting. Is that so much to ask? Or must we have low standards on every station lest we should lose the First Amendment?

UPDATE: It's Ricky's blog, but the poster was Oberon. I thought that was a bit out of character for RJW.
