  1. That video about Charlie and Brandon is disgusting, next you'll be showing some same-sex couple sitting down paying their bills together. HA HA!! They're adorable!

  2. I don't think I can bring myself to watch that weightlifting video. I've seen a couple of still photos of the incident, and the description, and they sufficiently traumatized me.

  3. ERICW,

    don't watch it.

  4. Expect to see more of these attacks in the coming months. Right wing radio spews hate all day long, convincing listeners that everything wrong with America today is the fault of liberals and that the rise of Democrats to power will be nothing less than an apocalypse.

  5. That was graphic. BTW, has anyone seen that really graphic weight lifting video of the guy who had his poopshoot turn inside out when he tried to lift too much? Ugh.

  6. First someone shot up a Unitarian church in Tenn with a liberal reputation, then someone shoots up the Democratic HQ in Arkansas. What's next? Stevo is right. Right wing radio has been preaching extreme hate and demonizing liberals for years now.

  7. OMG, is there a video of charlie and brandon doing and folding laundry? That would be much hotter than making breakfast!!!

  8. Oh, fucking please! Grow up! They may be cute, and, STOP THE PRESSES, one of them HAS HIS SHIRT OFF but, save for the CONTENT of what the one on the left says, his toy box for brains boyfriend drags the ad down to embarrassing triviality.

    I'm sure going to find out if any of the money I've donated is being wasted on crap like this which wouldn't win a single straight vote to defeat Prop 8!

  9. DAVEFROMTAMPA - give us the link!

    Posted by: Dan B | Aug 13, 2008 5:39:13 PM

  10. Hey Dan, I can't find the video anymore, I am sure it is out there, but here is the link regarding what happened. It is called prolapsed rectum.;f=109;t=000221;p=1

  11. cnn reports that gwatney is dead... well, the story made it to the national terror alert website so i guess it's being considered american terrorism ... looks like we have more to fear from our own homegrown merkun terrorists than muslims...

  12. Prolapsed rectum? I think I've found the name for my new blog!

    Posted by: 24play | Aug 13, 2008 6:12:54 PM

  13. So who are Charlie David and Brandon Rolph?

    Posted by: John | Aug 13, 2008 6:19:53 PM

  14. The office I work at is in downtown Little Rock about 300 feet from where this happened. I walk by the Party headquarters where this occurred every time I go to pick up lunch from the nearby lunch café I frequent. This is kind of scary in a way and it's part of the reason why we keep our doors locked.

    We don't know what the motivation was. It could have been a former employee and we heard a rumor that he asked for a paycheck from the secretary at the office before storming back to Mr. Gwatney's office and murdering him. The suspect has also been killed after a 30-mile high speed chase ending with him firing on the police and the police returning fire.

  15. Good god Leland, lighten up Francis.

    Posted by: Tralfaz | Aug 13, 2008 8:02:31 PM

  16. yes leland frances (farmer), GOOD GOD!!! my boyfriend and i ALWAYS have sex after he does and i fold the laundry. that's really what gay marriage is all about for me, finally being able to do the banal that my mom and dad have done for 50 years.

    Posted by: bading | Aug 13, 2008 8:59:15 PM

  17. i'm with leland - that ad is embarrassing

    Posted by: parker | Aug 13, 2008 9:10:17 PM

  18. that ad is just a joke, right?

    Posted by: jamesf | Aug 13, 2008 10:00:34 PM

  19. Barely a week after the church got shot up, there were letters to the editor in our local paper once again blaming "the liberals" for all our problems, and barely a whisper from our so-called press. Now this thing in Arkansas, and if it turns out to be another right-winger who hates liberals, it'll still get swept under the rug under a "disgruntled former employee" handle or somesuch. I'm seriously wondering if the Bush years weren't an aberration--our country really is this small, this frightened and frightening, this intolerant.

  20. @ DBACK: "I'm seriously wondering if the Bush years weren't an aberration--our country really is this small, this frightened and frightening, this intolerant."

    Yeah, that's the reason my husband and I have been talking about giving up on the ol' US of A for a few years now. If things go badly in November, we're going to have lots more of those discussions.

  21. Andy,

    It's great you picked up the Love Honor Cherish video with Charlie David and Brandon Rolph! However, the link should be to: (the No on Prop 8 site)

    not (a commercial site). Thanks for the post!

  22. Re: the ad.

    If it is "for real," it sucks. If it is to mock the ideal of marriage as a serious commitment, it's perfect. Show vacuous gym bunnies as the ultimate barometer (as opposed to a complex, real-life, responsibility-based relationship) of why gays should be allowed to marry. Like, maybe we should show Britney Spears and that Federline douche as an example of ideal parenthood and marriage? Thumbs up!

  23. Gay marriage ad:
    Big mistake. They are to good looking. Girls will envy that all good looking are gay and will vote against gay marriage in revenge.
    Why not making an ugly couple sitting on the couch. Nobody would envy them, maybe they'll get pity bonus.
    BTW, why does gay equals shirtless. If you want the people to vote for you ...

    ACTION ALERT: Tell the Right-Wing Consultants NO to Prop 8!

    Posted by: Chino Blanco | Aug 14, 2008 11:54:59 AM

  25. The ad is terrible. It neither a serious nor satirical justification for marriage rights.

    What does it show? Two cute guys in a kitchen showing their muscles. That's what people wil take away from the ad. Yeah, there's the comparison of interracial marriage but that's lost.

    This ad represets the worst part about gay culture's obsession with sexy bodies over substance.
