KK’s Temptations Debate Airs on Channel 5

From Fox Channel 5:

Kim Skokan, co-owner of KK’s Temptations and Steve Thomas, a Manassas resident who opposes the store, joined the FOX 5 News at 10 to debate this sex shop battle.

The debate has been ongoing for about a month.  Tonight one of the leaders against KK Temptations, Manassas City resident Steve Thomas, squared off  against co-owner Kim Skokan.  Evaluate the debate for yourself.  Was there a clear winner or did both ‘sides’ make their point? 


As most people know, Moonhowlings has been supportive of KK’s Temptations.   I was glad to see Mr. Thomas narrow his objections to the store to being only against adult  videos rather than trying to condemn the entire shop.  Having a specific objection makes a lot more sense than some of the other people I have talked to and those  I heard making preposterous statements.   Mr. Thomas also resisted calling their store a ‘porn shop.’

However, tomorrow KK”s Temptations opens officially.  Stop by and tell the ladies hello. 

UPDATE:  The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held this morning.  It is my understanding that none of the Manassas Council attended.  Shame on them. 


The  Red Hat Society ladies were cute.  Beth Parker sure pointed out the hypocrisy about the Candy Factory.  Kiddie plays and Last of the Red Hot Lovers.  Too funny. 

I am totally sick of hearing the kid card dropped.  What a bunch of bull crap.  It has nothing to do with it.  The woman who spoke up  and said something to the effect that the husbands would all want the wives to do things they didn’t want to do spoke volumes.  That’s what’s behind all of this.  Some of the good women of Manassas don’t want to be asked to ……nahhhh Moon Howler.  Don’t go there.  It was obvious. 

Maybe some of the good women just need to say no if something is suggested in the marital bedroom that they don’t want to do.  Surely these ‘weaker vessels’ have heard of NO and realize that they aren’t owned by their husbands?  Tell me it isn’t this basic. 


Leave it alone, Ginni Thomas–No more crank calls

In 1991,  Anita Hill testified against Supreme Court Associate  Justice Clarence Thomas during his confirmation hearing.  Hill had worked  for Thomas at the Department of Education and at EEOC.  Under oath, she testified that Thomas had made sexual remarks to her during the time they were both at DoEd and EEOC. Thomas was confirmed 52-48 but the hearings were extremely contentious and almost everyone had an opinion on Anita Hill.  The support and condemnation usually ran along party lines.  


According to the New York Times:

In a voice mail left at 7:31 a.m. on Oct. 9 — the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend — Virginia Thomas asked her husband’s former aide-turned-adversary to make amends. Ms. Hill played the recording, from her voice mail at Brandeis University, for The Times.

“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” it said. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometimes and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”

Ms. Thomas went on: “So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. OK, have a good day.”

Ms. Hill, in an interview, said she kept the message for nearly a week trying to decide whether the caller really was Ms. Thomas or a prankster. Unsure, she said, she decided to turn it over to the Brandeis campus police with a request to convey it the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

“I though it was certainly inappropriate,” Ms. Hill said. “It came in at 7:30 a.m. on my office phone from somebody I didn’t know, and she is asking for an apology. It was not invited. There was no background for it.”

In a statement conveyed through a publicist, Ms. Thomas confirmed leaving the message, which she portrayed as a peacemaking gesture. She did not explain its timing.

“I did place a call to Ms. Hill at her office extending an olive branch to her after all these years, in hopes that we could ultimately get passed what happened so long ago,” she said. “That offer still stands. I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended.”

The olive branch seems to come with a very accusatory tone attached to it.  Ms. Hill feels she told the truth which she was required to so and she owes no one an apology. 

What is Virginia Thomas thinking? Why dredge up the past after nearly 20 years.  To call someones office at that hour of the morning, on a weekend when the likelihood of the person being there is fairly remote,  is nothing short of harassment.  Mrs. Thomas is already under fire for being too much of an activist with her husband sitting on the Supreme Court.   Most spouses of Justices keep a very low profile politically, much like a General’s spouse must do. 

It now seems that Anita Hill is the one who should receive an apology.  I hope she gets it. 

Racist Jokes Electrocute another Elephant

Well, jumping jackasses.  Another one bites the dust.  It seems that the chairman of the Virginia Beach Republican Committee has been forwarding email that is less than politically correct.  It even happened before Paladino forwarded that famous picture of Trigger. 

Lowell over at Blue Virginia Blog is who busted the entire situation.  I can’t figure out who shot John in the whole thing because I am not a party person and don’t know all the operatives.  Best I can tell, Scott Rigell( R) is the candidate who is running against Glenn Nye (D).  David Bartholomew is the chairman, well, ex-chairman.   He has been replaced by Ken Longo.  I haven’t figured out who all the players are but I can link real well.

The Updated Update  from Tuesday (aka Top Rigell Endorser Recommends Racist “Barack the Angry Negro” video)


It looks like the walls came tumbling down there for a minute.  Now…the eternal question…why are people stupid?

If you are running a campaign, running for office, anything like that..why forward stupid email, tell dirty jokes, show any interest in bestiality, fool around with women, men, or anyone else.  Christine O’Donnell can be forgiven.  She made stupid statements long before she ran for office or was involved in a campaign.  Kristall Ball, the same thing.  But these people should know better.  I don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican or what.  Don’t be stupid.
