CNN/YouTube Debate: SexLit report card

You can get the debate online, but you can't get the (bottom) line out of the debate

So, the feedback is unanimous, good questions, predictable answers on the "revolutionary" CNN/YouTube democratic debate.

Well, at least one thing was great about these debates; the fact that i didn't have to watch them!

However, this morning in an attempt to make an informed blog post, i tracked down a few video clips from the debate last night to create this sexual literacy report card.

Dennis Kucinich: Kucinich is a kook and since vegan pot smoking gnomes don't vote, there's no way in hell, he will win. Luckily that allows him to fly his freak flag high and proud. I love this guy! And what he said about gay marriage was right on!
..if our Constitution really means what it says, that all are created equal,,,there should be equality of opportunity before the law, then our brothers and sisters who happen to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender should have the same rights accorded to them as anyone else, and that includes the ability to have a civil marriage ceremony.

I think that if he had answered the sex ed question, he would have mentioned something other than "I teach my kids that bad clowns will touch your no-no spots".

For this: I award him the only "A"

John Edwards: I have to say that I have alot of respect for his answers regarding gay marriage. He showed an amazing capacity for "keeping it real" and that sort of honesty is refreshing to see. This is a tough issue for a lot of people but I feel confident that if elected, he'll keep faith out of the White House and I for one and ready to return to the good old godless heathen times. As for the sex ed question. He's clearly someone who is terrified of sex. I can't help but wonder what his version of teaching his kids "everything they need to know" about sex really means. "So kids than you close your eyes and dream of that happy place with rainbows and teddy bears. Next thing you know the stork brings you a baby sister." Edwards also, gets points deducted for introducing the "sex ed as pedophile defense training" approach.

Grade: B-

Barack Obama: we were really pushing for Obama. especially after his strong stand for comprehensive sex ed for school age children but what a disappointment! Besides following Edward's lead on the sex ed question (see above), he totally fell into the "Mitt Romney trap". However, I admire that he's committed to separation of church and state (that godless, heathen thing again).

So I give him a B-.

Hillary Clinton: I have to wonder if they spared Hillary, the sex ed question because she would have something dignified and substantive to say. This would immediately be jumped on in the blogosphere as the rantings of a crazy, bitter hag who couldn't even keep her own man from straying. That's just a personal theory.

Grade: n/a

Dodd : I've never really heard of this guy and i think i might have actually slept through his answer to the gay marriage question. He's not going to win so I'm really not going to stress about it.

Gravel: see Dodd above

Not too impressed here. What about you?
Who do you think is the most sexually literate candidate?


  • Great post, Anna! It's so unfortunate that voters refuse to allow presidential candidates to lead on sexuality issues. It's like parents with teachers... If we could just relax and let teachers do their jobs, we would be much better off. If we want real leadership, we should vote for it!
