Capital V Rhymes With P and that Stands for Penis...

Hopefully you've seen The Music Man, or that title makes no sense whatsoever. The Revealer has a link up to an article at the Washington Post, Delivering the Conservative Line on Monologues. The following paragraph alone is enough to mark you as looney in my system:
Stuart grew up in a liberal Connecticut family, but in her sophomore year, she attended a debate that included conservative commentator Ann Coulter and came away enthralled. Soon she had joined the College Republicans.
But then she goes here:
During winter break of her senior year, she retyped "The Vagina Monologues,"
replacing every use of the word "vagina" with "penis," and called the result
"The Penis Monologues."
...and you know there's something deeply wrong with her that has nothing to do with needing a conservative message in her life. I don't think this is an issue of a liberal girl hearing the conservative call and being moved to a new way of thinking. I think this is just a story about a troubled college girl who isn't spending enough time with her books to actually understand the world and who found safety in hooking up with people who think for her.
"If you had an understanding of the play, the vagina becomes the least significant thing," Ensler says.
