Well, Lorena needs a nap real bad right now, and Bill just refuses to die, so why not let the drainers at him? Of course, that's not the real reason. The real reason is that Lorena is balanced on the edge of something very high up, and she's painted herself into a corner: She can't kill him, but also she can't go to sleep. She is trapped in there with him, waiting to die and doing everything she can to prolong his life. What she does to herself, that's what she's doing to him. But if she can stand there while the wolves are at him, maybe he'll die for her then, and she won't have pushed herself all the way to the killing blow, which would give her no comfort at all. And if not, at least it's a fresh form of torture, and she can at least sit down for awhile before they start in on each other again, and she'll have lost nothing she hasn't lost already.
"Of course. Suck whatever's left right out of him." First Cooter kicks him, which annoys Debbie who is just trying to eat, and then he settles down on Bill's other side, and they crouch over him like ghouls and get to sucking; as usual, the sounds they make are sexual and deeply disturbing.
Lafayette's old boyfriend, former State Senator and now House Rep (R) Louisiana, 8th District David "Duke" Finch! Well done, show! I can't believe I missed that! Okay, so anyway he's on a Sunday morning program ("taped earlier," so we still don't know what day of the week it is) debating Nan Flanagan about the VRA. He campaigned, if you recall, on your basic MOO platform: No gays, vamps, or weirdos. And I guess it won him the seat! Not to mention his gift for rhetoric -- "you can't hypnotize away the facts" -- which we see as he explains that ratification of the VRA would affect American children negatively by endorsing "deviant vampiric behavior."
In response, Nan Flanagan proves herself a better politician than apparently the entire DNC by making a very simple point: The American people are too smart for fear-mongering. "We have all seen that leaked fundraising presentation which outlines an aggressive strategy that's designed to capitalize on fear and misinformation," she says, and he interrupts to make fun of the "vast right-wing conspiracy" -- which is not a joke, well before Astroturf and this latest Teabagger nonsense, and acting like it's a joke is a fucking joke that puts you right where they want you -- but she points out that by bringing it all back around to children, which nobody but the GOP finds rational, you're verging on grotesque, not to say disingenuous.
