POLYGAMY AND THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY…. HBO’s new comedy series, “Big Love,” has spawned some interesting commentary from John Tierney, which has, in turn, spawned some interesting feedback from the blogosphere. I particularly enjoy this commenter’s take on Tierney:

It’s not like women actually enjoy or seek out sex, ever; so why shouldn’t they spread the misery around to their friends? Although their failure to want sex does allow for girl-girl-boy threesomes at any convenient moment. That goes double if they have gymnastic bodies, which, if they don’t, clearly there’s something wrong with them.

Leaving John ‘Nabokov’ Tierney’s perverse version of Libertarianism out of it for the moment, can either of the two major parties use “Big Love” to their political advantage in November?
