And Dan Savage wants it every day. In his latest edition of “Savage Love,” the syndicated sex columnist who gave new meaning to the word “santorum” has asked Americans to treat every day between now and November 2nd — midterm election day, of course — as “Masturbate to Christine O’Donnell Day.”
His declaration came in response to a reader named Hiding At The Elusive Fuzz Under Christine’s Knockers (figure out the acronym at your own peril), who wanted Savage to designate a single day in either Delaware or all of the United States as “Masturbate to Christine O’Donnell Day.”
Savage did his reader one (or 41) better:
I’m all for masturbating to Christine O’Donnell… but why limit it to one day? I hereby declare every day between now and November 2 — when O’Donnell’s nomination costs the GOP a Senate seat — to be Masturbate to Christine O’Donnell Day. Rub one out for freedom, people!
And, just in case anyone was unsure, the columnist also made clear his stance on Delaware’s Republican candidate for Senate:
She is famous for three things: getting her loony ass endorsed by Sarah Palin, viciously gay-baiting her straight primary opponent, and opposing masturbation because it makes the baby Jesus cry.
It seems that Savage’s missive was written before the recent Witchgate media controversy. Nonetheless, his message is clear and will likely be popular with liberals and left-ish moderates, who will have to schedule their daily “celebration” of O’Donnell around Jon Stewart‘s Rally to Restore Sanity (which also seeks to “activate the youth,” but in a different way) and Stephen Colbert‘s March to Keep Fear Alive.
