Follow Your Own Advice

So the Obama administration has opted against continuing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. It’s a good move, although we’re still a few steps away from stripping DOMA from the books. And naturally, the people who would deny a certain segment of the U.S. population equal rights just because they’re gay aren’t [...]

Oh, You’re SOOOOOOOO Persecuted

Some of you may have heard that the whole sexual abuse scandal has reared its ugly head again for the Catholic Church. It turns out that the current Pope himself, back when he was just a measly cardinal, mishandled a specific case including one priest who abused more than 200 deaf children. “Protect the church [...]

I Heard a Rumor About Health Care Reform

Apparently, Congress passed health care reform last night. Republicans announce the end of freedom and liberty, and Democrats celebrate their self-importance and ability to nearly blow it completely. Okay, so maybe I’m cynical. Yes, this reform is better than nothing, I suppose. Probably. I can talk myself out of that better-than-nothing argument for a while, [...]

By Ironic You Mean…

I can’t say I’m all that surprised to hear that Governor-for-a-Short-Time Palin used to head across the border to Canada to get her grubby paws on some free health care. She said in the interview, “I think now, isn’t that ironic?” Um, no. It’s not ironic. It’s outrageous, perhaps. Hypocritical, obviously. Exploitative, certainly. But nothing [...]

Re: Governor Mark Sanford

At least now we know why the good governor felt he didn’t need any stimulus money. Zang! Zzp-POW! Wocka-wocka-wocka! Ah, nuts. I’m telling this joke about 36 hours too late.

Pat and The Scotsman

Pat Robertson has once again done something offensive. I know! I KNOW! Shocking! In reference to gay marriage, he said that from here it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump to pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, and indoor-plumbiphilia. Equating the LGBTQCI (and any other letters that may or may not encompass what has generally been known [...]

Hate It, Hate It, Don’t Care… LOVE IT!

So the liberal masses are angry at Barack Obama because he chose a gay-bashing bigot to give the invocation at his inauguration. Meanwhile, the bigoted masses are angry at Rick Warren because he’s agreed to do the invocation at the inauguration of an infanticidal queer lover. Everyone in the middle couldn’t care less. Who, then, [...]

That’s a Lot of Stains

Earlier this week, a retired Cardinal (and I don’t mean the St. Louis Cardinals) declared that Madonna (the pop idol, not the Mother of God) is lustful and offensive to God. That this retired Cardinal said these things during a service memorializing the second anniversary of the death of former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet proves [...]

Focus on the Screwing of Families

I’d like to offer my special congratulations (topped with a long, gnarly middle finger) to James Dobson and Focus on the Family. Shortly after spending $500,000 to screw gay families in California (that would be Proposition 8 support), Focus on the Family has announced that they’ll lay off more than 200 people, thereby screwing families [...]

What’s the Matter With Florida?

I gotta tell ya, folks, there’s something strange about Florida. It’s already suspect because of the 2000 election, those weird expansion baseball teams that make it to the playoffs, and the curious retirement communities. Plus, you know… it’s my birth state. But in Florida’s 16th Congressional District, well, frankly, I’m beginning to think the water [...]
