To Nobody's Surprise

A few things which ought to surprise nobody:

First, there is the New York Times' coverage of Sen. Mary Landrieu's great  and beneficent leadership the Keystone pipeline's rejection by the senate. They wrote two stories before the vote, one which would praise her for successfully getting the pipeline approved, and one which would praise her in the event that the bill failed. The first praises her leadership and tenacity which enabled her to get things done, the second her leadership and tenacity to fight the good fight even against insurmountable odds. No, really. Landrieu is the current (Democratic) senator from Louisiana, and is facing a probable loss in the run-off elections to the Republican challenger.

Second, there is a recent sex-ed conference for middle-school and high-school kids which took place in Oregon:
"Even the mainstream media is jumping on the news that children being sent by schools to a sexuality conference in Oregon encourages all kinds of obscene sexual behavior, taking meth-amphetamines, simulated sex acts and even instructions on how to have sex over the internet... 
Diller says she came away from the conference deeply scarred. “I monitor Planned Parenthood sex education on a regular basis and I have seen some unbelievably horrifying situations that young people are put in because of the abortion giant’s fixation with sexualizing children, but never have I seen so many adults work so hard to defile young people than at this conference,” she said. 
She also said that she grieves for the students “who spent two long days with adults who relentlessly threw the most vile, deceptive, sexually soaked garbage in their faces in an apparently successful attempt to numb them to sin, to turn them against Christianity, and to tempt them with the embrace of debauchery in some of its most vile apparitions.”"
In addition to encouraging these kids to engage in all sorts of "obscene sexual behavior," this conference is encouraging the taking of meth-amphetamines? This seems like an outrage, a shock, a horror: but it would not really surprise me if true. Horrifying, yes, but surprising, no.
