The RP’s Weekly Web Gems: The Politics of Love

The Politics of Love

You know, dear readers, that the American Experiment has been in cultural decline for many, many years—especially if you’ve paid any attention to some on the lunatic fringe over the last few decades. Remember (way back in 1992) when Pat Robertson declared that a state Equal Rights Amendment for women in Iowa was part of a “socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians”? You’ve gotta love this guy. Capitalism seems to still be hanging around, but he really does have a problem with lesbians. [Salon

Michael Scott, you will be missed. Love, Michael Scott style. [The Proposal

And if you’ve never seen the original UK version of The Office with Ricky Gervais as the half-witted, self-absorbed git of a boss, check out Free Love on the Free Love Freeway. Absolutely barmy! [David’s Song

And, finally, by the time you read this the pomp, paparazzi and millions of pounds will be fizzled, flashed, and spent on this morning’s Royal Wedding between William and Kate. So what better time to examine Royal Divorces through the ages—starting with Henry VIII on none other than the Official Website of the British Monarchy. Enjoy! []
