When Newt made the analogy, he also referred to himself and his conservative cronies as "slaves" in the midst of an "uprising" or a "revolt". They regularly use slavery references with little consideration, though I was unfazed by this one.

Peace... "Promiscuous women should be praised Randy Woock There is a plethora of pejorative words used to derogatorily refer to a sexually uninhibited woman. Why are there so many negative synonyms for a woman whose sexual mores aren't in line with the Judeo-Christian ideal?
