News: Impeachment, Jared Leto, Gay World Cup, Robbie Williams

road.jpg Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) raises possibility of Bush impeachment: "The president says, 'I don’t care.' He’s not accountable anymore,' Hagel says, measuring his words by the syllable and his syllables almost by the letter. 'He’s not accountable anymore, which isn’t totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don’t know. It depends how this goes. The conversation beaches itself for a moment on that word — impeachment — spoken by a conservative Republican from a safe Senate seat in a reddish state. It’s barely even whispered among the serious set in Washington, and it rings like a gong in the middle of the sentence, even though it flowed quite naturally out of the conversation he was having about how everybody had abandoned their responsibility to the country, and now there was a war going bad because of it."

Caroline Flint: "It is obviously a great concern that there is a persistently high number of HIV transmissions among gay men in the UK - at least 2,400 diagnoses in 2005. The challenge for the NHS and for others promoting gay men's health is how to address the diverse needs of those who have become sexually active in an age of effective HIV treatments, and since the AIDS campaigns of the 1980s."

Patients share a room with two others and get a 7am wake-up call before a day of detoxing, group therapy sessions and one-on-one counselling. He checked into the rehab clinic on February 13 -his 33rd birthday. Previously he has spoken about his continuing battle with depression and his reliance on anti-depressants."

  1. Wow, it is wonderful to have a republican calling for the idiot Bush to be impeached. I have been waiting for this since the mit-term elections.

  2. Hagel is one of the decent Republicans ... he wasn't afraid to stand up to Bush - before it was popular to do so. He even conveniently disappeared during the vote for the constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, even though in Nebraska it has huge support (last I heard, Nebraska had the toughest anti-gay laws in the country). I could actually see myself voting for him for President if the Dems put up some clunker.

  3. I am glad to hear the word "Impeachment" coming up. I hope that it is taken under serious consideration; that it is persued with the same veracity as the blue dress and blow job in the last administration.

    I just hope to Hell the Democrats have the balls to persue it, even after Pelosi said it was not to be considered.

    It's time to call this kettle what it is.

  4. We don't have prime minister in the US and impeachment is a poor substitute for parlimentary government.

  5. Lance writing a book? Somewhere, Reichen just totally lost all bladder control and will spend the next several months biting his nails even more than he bites the pillow.

    "Like everyone else, I had heard the stories of his sexual compulsion and inability to be faithful to his endless succession of 'husbands', but, like fools for skin deep beauty since the dawn of time, I thought I could be the one to change him, and believed every lie he told me. Even after I found out that the place he took me on our first official 'date'—the Hotel Bel-Air—had been the scene of his and Chip's wedding. In retrospect, instead of thinking about what a talented bottom he was, I should have listened to that little voice inside that said, 'There's something creepy about this'."

  6. WoW! no wonder leto has been acting so crazy...bodies are not designed to gain and then lose that much weight! It messes up you mind as well as the metabolism.

    Oh, and drugs might be a part of it too!

  7. Hell, don't stop at impeachment—Bush should be tried as a war criminal. BUT the former is no more likely to happen than the first. Hagel can drop the I-word all he wants, but he has no more chance of effecting it than the naive legions periodically waving "Impeach Bush" signs in our streets.

    If, after an election that even Bush, more or less, agreed was a repudiation of his war policy, there still aren't enough votes in Congress to STOP it—why would anyone imagine there are enough votes to even move toward impeachment, let alone pass it, based on that same policy?

    Hagel is admirable for criticizing Bush and calling bullshit on Condosleazy to her face in Senate hearings, but he's more libertarian than liberal Republican and has had a 100% rating from the Christian Coalition, and has voted against adding gays to hate crime classes. Yes, he's likely to oppose a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage but wouldn't mind at all if every state banned it [seems anti-libertarian, but homophobia turns all philosophies inside out].

    Nebraska is not particularly worse than most red states vis-a-vis gay rights. They repealed their sodomy law way back in 1978. "Worst state" has to be Utah which, in addition to prohibiting gay couples from adopting, just refused to repeal their sodomy law even though the Supreme Court said it, as all others [outside of the military], was unconstitutional. While unlikely to happen, the interpretation is that, regardless of the probable outcome of an appeal should you be arrested and convicted there, you still could be. And, yes, boys and girls, you have religion to thank for that.

  8. Why didn't Leto aim the gun at his gut? Pop the ooze out of that thing.

  9. Rosie O'Donnell is leading the charge in impeaching the President. Fantastic!

    Stop risking your LIVES, folks, when having sex. God you've been told a thousand times. Practice safe sex.

    It's good to hear that the Canadian radio station is taking those anti-gay remarks seriously and is suspending host Louis Champagne.

    Argentina is showing it's one of the progressive countries in South America. The only thing I wonder is when is a gay soccer player on one of these teams going to make it in the regular league? There seems to be no drive from the players to excel at the sport and is more for fun. That's what it's like in most gay leagues unfortunately.

  10. Ew, who wants to read about Lance Bass??? I do hope for some spoilers about Reichen, though!

  11. This whole rehab thing is silly: these celebs don't want to be "normal"--they are running away from "normal", and partying all the time and using drugs is just part of their attempt to escape ennui and "normal" reality, because, you know, they are all so "special". Depression and boredom go hand-in-hand for celebs, at least in their own minds. If they have to wait 5 extra seconds to get on an elevator they are having a "major crisis".

  12. Jack!,

    Your comment on safe(r) sex is a perfect example of the problem the UK study is designed to study and combat.

    "Just say no" doesn't work. The HIV prevention messages that were so effective at reducing transmission among gay men in the late ’80s and early ’90s are increasingly useless in a world where people aren't seeing tens or hundreds of friends and acquaintances wither away before their eyes.

    Like it or not, HIV is viewed by many,if not most, young gay men as a manageable chronic disease. In fact, a report on a recent scientific study equated—in no uncertain terms—HIV infection with diabetes, with regard to disease management, health consequences, and life expectancy.

    To be effective, prevention messages need to be recalibrated to match the reality on the ground now. Fortunately, the UK health minister realizes this and is putting governemnt money behind re-thinking prevention messages.

  13. This questions seems shallow compared to all the relevant political conversation, but who's in the picture with Robbie?

    I likey.

  14. Leland on Lance: LOL

    And, re: Jared: jeez, gaining and losing that weight CAN'T be good for your body. He's not just a little tubby--he got way fat. And then ripped again. God knows what he ate to gain that much weight--but even more curious is how he lost it all!

    Posted by: martin | Mar 7, 2007 4:40:23 PM


  15. I wouldn't really say he got ripped...maybe holocausted? (Yes, I acknowledge that was offensive) Nonetheless, I would imagine his weight gain/weight loss technique is extremely unhealthy and probably involves drug use/anorexia in some way. Poor guy's got no ass!

  16. In an interview, he said he's on a diet of lemon, cayenne pepper and water. I kid you not.

  17. Why anyone with "abs of death" would voluntarily go-tubby...and then experience near-death to regain those abs is beyond-me. Comparing the abs flashing in his "Crouching Dragon" music-video with the Telly-Tubby above is beyond obscene...there must be something going-on. That goes WAY BEYOND the heavy mascara and eyeliner of-late.

    Come out, already!!!! yeesh.....

  19. Jack!,

    Why worry about that responsible stuff when it's so much easier to continue reckless, selfish behavior and then blame everyone else for the consequences.

    Btw, when is the next Alegria? I hooked up with the hottest guy at the last one...

    Posted by: jay | Mar 7, 2007 9:15:31 PM


  20. Just finished Reichen's book. Pretty intriguing, actually. In the back he thanks Lance (before Lance was out). I'm interested to see what Lance really has to say, Leland's imagination notwithstanding. Unless, of course, Leland IS Reichen.

  21. André Boisclair is the hottest politician around.

  22. This blurb sums it up on Leto...pretty crazy:

    Jared Leto piled on so much weight to play John Lennon's killer Mark David Chapman in a new film doctors were seriously worried about his cholesterol. The star guzzled two pints of microwaved Häagen-Dazs ice-cream daily to play the chubby assassin in Chapter 27, and gained a speedy 65 pounds in the process.

    As a result, Leto suffered from gout and his cholesterol levels shot up. He says, "My cholesterol was so high they (doctors) wanted to put me on Lipitor (prescription cholesterol medication). I took a wheelchair to set every morning because I couldn't walk more than a few feet without excruciating pain."
