Dhimmied Down Again

Dhimmification continues.

In a review from Newsweek you can find the latest on offer: a sitcom — actually, they term it a “drama” — on HBO about polygamy. Don’t ask why, maybe they just figured it might draw an audience.

Essentially, the plot revolves around a shopkeeper in Utah who has three wives and pops a lot of Viagra. Maybe it’s just an extended Viagra commercial? As one actress who plays a part in his harem puts it:
    “In my career, I’ve pretty much seen it all, but I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything on a polygamous family,” says Tripplehorn. Though she was intrigued by the concept, Tripplehorn wasn’t sure she could handle it. “I had a hard time finding a connection as to why a woman would share her husband. I didn’t think I was up to the task. I didn’t think I could make it real.”
Nothing like having integrity in your work life, lady.

Trippelhorn. What a perfect name for an actress in a show about what is essentially a menage a trois relationship.
