Episode 9: Bad Arguments with Suburbanaut, Momus and new contributor Skeeve.
This week’s ShoppeCast finds our staff recovering from a night of roller derby and booze-fueled shenanigans. Obama’s pro gay-marriage announcement was fresh on our minds, but we found shockingly little to debate on the subject. It’s a simple matter of equal rights, and we can’t see any reason to deny those rights because of someone’s sexual orientation. In our humble opinion, it’s a stupid argument.
One stupid argument led to another, and we manage to solve a good portion of the world’s problems in 30 minutes or less. Homophobic politicians, anti-vaccination hoaxes, anti-birth control propaganda, anti-abortion rhetoric and George Lucas all get their turn in this episode.
