    I have to believe that Michael Steele is going to be removed from his post for “personal reasons” or somesuch within a few months. They certainly won’t be letting him shoot off his ass mouth leading up to the 2010 elections.

    In the Focus on the Family story in the Denver Post it says they have gone from over 1400 to 850 employees since 2002 — a reduction of about 40%! That’s interesting and, I think, good news.

  3. Rooquest says

    That”chupacabra” is a Xoloitzcuintli, or Mexican hairless dog. I guess in Texas if you don’t recognize something you kill it, but that could have been someone’s pet. And CNN, Fox, the L.A. Times and now Towleroad have jumped on the knuckle-dragging bandwagon with OMG! what is it?! Kill it quick!

    Michael Steele is starting to be, as my grandfather would say about people like Sammy Davis Jr., ” a disgrace to the colored race.”

    Men’s Vogue sucked. I love Men’s Fashion and actually subscribe to Details ( I know, don’t start, I hate them too). MV always was trying way too hard to be “straight”. At least at Details everybody knows the only readers are Gays and those who want to be Gay.

    Lady GaGa may just turn out to be hella cool in the long run. snipe all you will about Madge, but, she was (and is) to a certain generation of The Gays, but, it’s nice to see a new chick come up to lead the the new gen of Queer Youth. and yes, I have learned that the is the new lingo the kids are using.

    I’m so damn hip. Tee. Hee.

  5. says

    Glad to hear the news on WA state support of same-sex couple rights. Now the trick will be to make “Approve” the clear choice for those supporters if Ref. 71 makes it to the ballot.

    Approve 71 = Yes for Rights!

  6. Brad says

    Men’s VOGUE deserved to fold, but I liked DOM.

    Chace Crawford makes me wanna puke.

    I know it’s a cliche, but I love Samantha Jones.
