  1. All my mixed feelings about Obama were reaffirmed this week. I agree with Bill O'Reilly's praising of him, but I also agree with Savage that he's a lying Chicago politician.

  2. Dear Jack Mackenroth,

    This HIV positive guy wants to marry you. If you are interested, get back to me, 'kay?

  3. The NY Post has been printing a lot of gay stuff in their Page Six column recently and with little abandon or "blind items."

    They printed not too long ago that the NYC Prep kid PC was seen making out with Paris Hilton's little brother, Barron.

    Could this be a sign of the times?

  4. Dan Savage, like many others, has figured a truly lazy way to get readers.

  5. Pratt needs to pull her ugly head out of her big ass and start learning to live with other people in the world. What a fucking stupid bitch she is. Good luck Australia.

    I don't usually agree with Dan Savage but regarding Obama he couldn't be more correct.

    Regarding those "drunk straight men" in Australia. We'll see how they handle the 1,400 gay men joining them for Mardi Gras on the first Atlantis cruise to Australia/New Zealand? They might just get their asses kicked or maybe even fucked depending on how stupid/drunk or desperate they are for attention. Those crazy drunk straight guys....

  6. Still peddling Think Progress paranoid ravings, Andy?

    But then who cares if the GOP is encouraging anti-socialist medicine displays at town halls? The Dems and their friends accussed the Repubs of wanting to throw seniors out on to the street back in the 90s.

    Turn about is fair play, isn't it?

  7. Thank you, Derek.

    I said it before and I will say it again:

    Fuck Dan Savage.

  8. David C

    I hope u refuse medicare when your retired. That government run socialized medicine thingy that medicare is

    On throwing seniors into the streets. Reagan much earlier than the 90's did in fact close many fed mental institutions and fed retirement hospitals throwing many mentally disturbed people = majority vietnam vets who couldn't adapt and many elderly people out into the streets creating the homeless people on city streets problem that first blossomed in the 80's.

  9. Jimmyboyo, you should totally report David C to Our Dear Leader. I understand that all good citizens are expected to report dissenters to the government now.

    Who knew his definition of "Change" was to take all of Bush's fucked up policies and intensify them?

    Nixon and Hitler would be jealous of the advances in totalitarian control that Obama is introducing.

  10. Any regular Roadie knows of my criticism of the President regarding LGBT issues, but, while I do have concerns in other areas, anyone assuming that I feel the same way about him generally would be mistaken.

    Proving gays are, in fact, "everywhere," here we're seeing lavender members of the lunatic fringe robotically reciting their brainwashing about so-called "socialist medicine" [from the same fanatics who would rather see a teenage girl pregnant or someone die of AIDS than have access to condoms] ...and, Mary [Cheney] PUHLEEZE, "totalitarian control"!

    Ya wanna talk Hitleresque? Nothing in the U.S. currently echoes him more than the pre-organized, premediated mobs masquerading as spontaneous synergy being sent to disrupt public discussions of health care reform just as it was supposedly only the humble, simple "Volk" "spontaneously" protesting Jews. What shall we call this 2009 Americanized version...a townhall putsch? At least they could bring everyone beer!

    Of course, this isn't the first time the Repugs have used such tactics...which have nothing to do with simply exercising dissenting free speech and everything to do with preventing the free speech of those with whom the cyber-assembled mob dissents. Recall their success in stopping the 2000 recount in Miami as reported then by "Time" magazine:

    "Marjorie Strayer insisted she was just a Virginian on vacation in Miami. She had come to the downtown Stephen P. Clark Government Center to watch the Dade County vote recount -- something to do before the trip to the Seaquarium. But Strayer, it turns out, is a top aide to New Mexico's Republican Congresswoman, Heather Wilson, and was one of hundreds of paid G.O.P. crusaders who descended on South Florida last Wednesday to protest the state's recounts.

    In a Winnebago outside, G.O.P. operatives orchestrated the ranks up to the 19th floor, hoping to halt the tally of the largest potential lode of Gore votes. Republicans, not usually known for takin' it to the streets, got what they wanted. Just two hours after a near riot outside the counting room, the Miami-Dade canvassing board voted to shut down the count.

    Yet the way the Republicans went after it, by intimidating the three-member board or by providing the excuse it was looking for, gave Americans the first TV view of strong-arm tactics in what was supposed to be a showcase of democracy in action.

    ...the screaming, the pounding on doors and the alleged physical assaults on Democrats suddenly made a bemused public queasy."

    But "alleged" was a misnomer as "The New York Times" would report:

    "Moments later, several angry Republicans, many of whom had acted as observers during the recount, surrounded the local Democratic Party chief, Joe Geller, in the lobby of the building and accused him of slipping a ballot in his back pocket in the tabulation room. Soon, about a dozen sheriff's deputies surrounded Mr. Geller, as the crowd, which had quickly grown to more than 100 people, yelled ''cuff him'' and ''busted.'' Mr. Geller, as it turned out, did not have an actual ballot in his pocket but rather a sample voter card which board of elections officials said he had asked for to demonstrate how ballots were being counted. As the deputies hastily led him to safety, the crowd surged forward, knocking two television cameramen to the ground and nearly trampling them.

    In another altercation, several Republican demonstrators shoved Luis Rosero, a Democratic spokesman as he was conducting a news conference. ''I was punched twice in the back and kicked once,'' Mr. Rosero said."

    One can only hope that their homegrown fascism today so enrages those members of the House and Senate they're trying to terrorize that they vote for the health plan they might otherwise have been prone to oppose.

  11. Dan Savage hits it on the head, as usual.

    And this health care provider says that anyone bitching about "socialized medicine" can suck it. Unless you're willing to forego your Medicare and Social Security benefits for the rest of your life, shut the fuck up.
