Jon Stewart almost nailed it last night when he ended his segment on the right wing double standard for women by saying

“It’s alright to be a pussy as long as you’ve got a dick.”

But he left off the last four words that would have made that statement 100% correct:

“if you’re a Republican.”

Susie Madrak of Crooks & Liars sent me this clip to discuss when she joined in during the first hour of the show today….

Their double standard really is astounding. They demean Dianne Feinstein and Hillary Clinton as “too emotional” – yet applaud the crying John Boehner and Mitch McConnell for being “manly” enough to let their tears flow freely.

This is nothing new from the party that believes IOKIYAR. I think it needs to be updated to AIOKIYAR (anything is ok if you’re a republican). Ugh.

I thought it was time for some music to help us de-stress, so thankfully, Jill Sobule has a new album!

“Dottie’s Charms” will be officially released on May 6, by Harpers magazine (though you’ll also be able to get it via Jill’s website and the other usual sources).

It was already written about in the NY Times  And we debuted a few of the songs on the show this morning.

Jill has a new deadline to deliver us a new theme song for the show. Her new deadline is May 16. Feel free to tweet her to remind her!

Back tomorrow to put a fork in this week….
