Okay, pack it up, everyone. Satire is dead. It made it all the way through the 2012 election, against the expectations of all its doctors, struggled valiantly for several months, and seemed to be on the road to recovery, but, nope, that’s it, it’s over. I just got word from Texas.
Among the latest updates from the Unwanted Texas Efforts To Pass Stringent Anti-Abortion Legislation came the gem  that the state senate security was confiscating tampons from spectators entering the gallery to watch debate on HB 2. Guns, of course, were still allowed in the gallery for those with concealed carry licenses.
