With liberals, there's no separation of sex and state. Jeffrey Meyer of CNSNews.com found they're trying to be hip with the kids at the University of Maryland, hosting "Sex Week" for education, communication, exploration" at its campus in suburban College Park.

The event features a local D.C. sex shop called "The Garden" whose mission according to its website is "commitment to body safe and eco-friendly products." There's some wild-sounding events on the menu:

Despite all the trouble ObamaCare has been having since health insurance exchanges opened about two weeks ago, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on ABC’s This Week Sunday predictably had nothing but praise for the law.

Fortunately the Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan and former Mitt Romney advisor Dan Senor were present to set the record straight (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Does Candy Crowley work for CNN or the Democratic Party?

It was tough to tell Sunday when after the State of the Union host asked guest Rand Paul (R-Ky.) if recent polling indicated the beginning of the end of the Republican Party, she actually asked him if he’d ever consider becoming a Democrat (video follows with transcript and commentary):

The Washington Post’s campaign against the name “Redskins” continued on Sunday with a column by former Metro section editor Robert McCartney headlined “Ready-made replacements for ‘R’ word.” He never used the word “Redskins.”

McCartney and the Post were pushing their politically correct logo designs, including one for the “Griffins” that looked an awful lot like a chicken. That might be poetic, but it’s sad. McCartney announced he was picked as a judge for a replace-Redskins logo contest:

Over at The Huffington Post, socialist activist Jim Wallis is typically insisting that the Bible’s verses on the poor all underline that socialism is God’s demand in the current shutdown. We're not individually responsible for the poor, we must be collectively, bureaucratically responsible. 

“We're hearing lots of babble at the Capitol, but across the street, we're trying to hear the word of God -- what God says about the people, families, and children who will suffer the most because of Washington's babble,” he wrote. Don’t they know God wanted a statist “War on Poverty”?

Trashing the "excessive secrecy" of the Bush administration, Barack Obama came into office pledging open government, but he has fallen far short of that promise. Former Washington Post editor Leonard Downie released their tough report at the Committee to Protect Journalists on the Obama administration’s tight control and aggressive prosecution of leaks. The first sentence: "In the Obama administration's Washington, government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press."

What sets the Obama administration apart from others, said Downie, is not its attempt to control the media narrative but rather its shameless ability to do so.

A few hours ago Daily Beast editor-at-large Lloyd Grove published a deliciously scathing review of MSNBC's new Up Late that premiered Friday.

From the very first sentence, readers could tell he wasn't impressed: "This is a terrible and surprising question, but is Alec Baldwin really that boring?"

Has President Obama lost David Letterman?

On the CBS Late Show Friday, the host aired a video he called "This Day In Obamacare Enrollment" in which people from different parts of the country were shown destroying their computers (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

The Obama-loving media couldn't wait to report findings from an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll concerning how the public are giving far more blame for the government shutdown to Republicans than the President.

What they chose not to report was that 51 percent of respondents in the very same poll said of Barack Obama, "He is putting his own political agenda ahead of what's good for the country":

People Magazine is known for its sugary boosting of Democratic celebrities, from helping the Clintons show off Chelsea in 1992 to boosting the Obamas in both election years. In the latest edition, readers can see how People handles conservatives.

There it is, in the table of contents: “Meet Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the Canadian-born conservative Republican at the center of the government shutdown fight.” The headline on page 113 is “Shutdown 2013: Cruz Control.” People’s Sharon Cotliar quickly turns to Cruz’s “swift rise to notoriety” and Joe McCarthy comparisons:

A search at Google News on "Anne Packham" (in quotes) returns nine items.

That's an amazingly low number, considering Ms. Packham's aggressive attempts to gain visibility in her job as a lead Obamacare navigator in Florida, and the utterly ridiculous assertion she made earlier this week about the impact of credit scores on healthcare premiums — an assertion she has retracted without anything resembling an acceptable explanation (HT Conservative Intel; video at link; bolds are mine):

"With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70 year old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear."

So oddly said Miley Cyrus in an interview with Hunger TV Wednesday:

If Washington Post writer, Sarah Kliff, of the WonkBlog had been the music director aboard the Titanic, the last tune played on the deck of the sinking ship would probably have been Happy Days Are Here Again. I make that claim because Ms Kliff has taken upon herself the role as pollyannish cheerleader for the "train wreck" known as ObamaCare.

In her latest desperate search for a nonexistent silver lining, Kliff has conjured up what she imagines to be an indication that young people might, could be, maybe, possibly are interested in signing up for ObamaCare. Here is Kliff imagining what she so desperately hopes to be true based on nothing real:

Talk about your government shutdown. Conservatives would have enjoyed watching liberal TV reporters sputter if President Bush had completely skipped the first row of reporters and picked only friendly reporters, even writers for conservative blog sites. But the media elites would have thrown a major tantrum about censorship -- including Jay Carney in his tenure at Time magazine.

Put the shoe on the other foot, and the liberal media is pretty quiet. President Obama failed to call on TV reporters at his Wednesday press conference, even though he came to The Huffington Post for a shoe-shine question. Then Tommy Christopher at Mediaite pointed out White House press briefer Jay Carney aggressively ignored Ed Henry of Fox News twice at Friday’s briefing, so he walked out:

As video games grow ever more violent and realistic, the latest sign "progress" is the arrival of female characters you can take into combat in the latest version of the war game "Call of Duty."

You may watch a hundred commercials selling this product, but no one tells the audience what’s really in it. There’s a reason: You’d be shocked. A panel of young pundits on the gaming website IGN.com recently pondered the question "How does it feel to have a woman get stabbed in the face?"
