ABC Upset that Libertarians Make Better Lovers

Here is E Online’s take on the situation:

The Alphabet Net is calling foul after a rough cut of a sex scene from the upcoming season of Desperate Housewives was leaked on YouTube nearly a month before the steamy footage was slated to air.

“We are looking into the unauthorized clips of Desperate Housewives on YouTube, and will be having them taken down,” an ABC rep said Friday.

The time-stamped, though fully edited, clip runs just over a minute and was made available by two separate YouTube posters–or at least by a YouTube devotee with more than one screen name–last Sunday. As of Friday morning, just one of the posts remained watchable.

The scene features Bree (Marcia Cross) and new boytoy Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) in bed, with the underwear-clad housewife protesting her partner’s attempt to give her oral sex.

“I don’t do that,” she says. “I’m a Republican.”

“I’m a Libertarian,” Orson replies. “I believe in minimizing the role of the state and maximizing individual rights. Trust me, I know what I’m doing.”

The video, while it lasted, was funny as hell. I initially found out about the now banned video here. If anyone gets a link to the footage, please pass it on. Here’s additional background on the story.

It’s absolutely vital that this video remain on YouTube. If Republicans can learn to enjoy oral sex, perhaps they won’t reproduce quite so often.

BTW, the women I’m hanging with today have decided that they clearly aren’t Republicans.

  • Maybe if Libertarians enjoyed it a little less, we might have a shot at that free market in 18 years or so…

    I was wondering how best to apply your statement to some libertarian women I know. They seem to enjoy the same sport Orson does.

  • That one cuts both ways.

    Btw, can I get some experienced libertarian commentary on this:

    Sure it’s just meant to be funny, but the thought of “Freedom is overrated” being read by 4% of the world’s population in over two dozen languages is a bit disconcerting.

    Libertarian women desire freedom in every facet of life- the bedroom is no exception.

  • Graham

    Actually one of the few times I can say I prefer “liberals.”

  • What the fuck does libertarianism have to do with going down on some chick? I hate libertarians.

  • paulie

    If Republicans can learn to enjoy oral sex, perhaps they won’t reproduce quite so often.

    ROTFL. Good one!

  • keith

    I am a republican I love eating pussy, my GF is a republican
    and loves it when I make her toes curl. So all you libertarians and democrats can fuck off or fuck yourselves.
    As a matter of fact you people should stop procreating, we have enough fags, lesbians and school teachers.

  • JVLaB

    All this d*rty s*x talk is making me feel uncomfortable.

  • Kirk Alan

    Well, I have a boner and trust me, I know exactly what to do with it. Ohhhhhhhhhhh Keeeeeeith…..

  • “It’s absolutely vital that this video remain on YouTube. If Republicans can learn to enjoy oral sex, perhaps they won’t reproduce quite so often.”

    So true.

    Keith. You are an admitted sodomite just like any “fag” or “lesbian,” so you I will see you in hell if your hocus pocus sham of a god exists. I won’t hold my breath.

  • Also, I love how Keith advances the theory of homosexualiy being a herediary trait. Yeah. And they need to stop procreating, Keith says, because we have too many of them.

    And god forbid we have anymore educated people like school teachers. Keith’s beloved fascist bloc may be thretened if more people knew how to read and critically think.

  • Michelle Shinghal

    I can’t believe a republican said “pussy”.

  • Michelle Shinghal

    In public, I mean.

  • Graham

    BTW, a lot of the articles I have read leave the whole Libertarian part out of the description.

  • Sandra Kallander

    When does it air? Note to self: stock up on voter registration and LP membership forms.

  • The connection between libertarianism and oral sex should be obvious — it’s all about reciprocity as a means of pursuing rational self interest.

  • Get REal

    Gee, Republicans posting here are really anal! To say the least “keith” is just plain dumb.

  • Richard Evans

    It’s just that a lot of Republicans SEEM to have a hangup on all things sexual, or is it just politicians? This type of thing is one of the major reasons those who support smaller government cannot force themselves to vote for Republicans:
    Conservatives ask FBI to investigate hotel porn.
    A coalition of 13 conservative groups — including the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America — took out full-page ads in some editions of USA Today earlier this month urging the Justice Department and FBI to investigate whether some of the pay-per-view movies widely available in hotels violate federal and state obscenity laws.

  • paulie

    Hotel porn sucks, they cut out the good parts.

  • Sandra Kallander

    As an employee and stockholder of a company that makes TV shows and movies, as well as being a screenwriter, I do believe ABC is well within its rights to pull it. If they find the person that leaked it, they may not work again.

    There’s always TiVo.

  • I’d say it is high time for groups of any kind to get out of my business.

    If I happen to be out of town and want to watch a skin flick I should be able to. Would those “groups” be happier if I was banging a prostitute poking her little cinnamon ring.

    Perhaps they are concerned with the content of the films and they would be happier if penetration was censored. I myself would find that a crime as the act of penetration is kinda the point is it not!?

    Geez what the f*ck! Mind your own lives damn it… I do not forbid you your religion of slaves… do not forbid me my own choices!

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.”
    — C. S. Lew

  • Damn, and here I was attempting to link to…. alas the censors got to that one as well. What a shame.
