Anti-gay evangelicals met with protest at Syracuse University: "Pesto, a junior from Westchester County, said he saw the Deferios’
signs earlier in the day. It made him uncomfortable, he said, so he
made his own sign. 'Corduroy skirts are a sin,' it said, referring to
what Michelle Deferio was wearing. 'I was just making a gay joke,' he said. But friends saw him and joined in, standing with him and making signs of their own. Other students came and, by 6:30, there were about 70 people at the scene, holding signs, cheering and challenging the Deferios."

    Are Mary Cheney and her partner attending some sort of Hillary Clinton look-a-like costume parade?

    Fighting with evangelicals at college sounds a lot more fun today than it was 20 years ago.

    “Sarah Lynne Cheney was born Wednesday morning at Sibley Hospital in Washington, in a manner that shocked doctors, by gnawing its way through its mother’s womb. Covered in blood and placenta, the horned infant began feasting on hospital staff, while terrified nurses and patients ran screaming for hospital exits.”

  3. says

    crispy: great to hear by an obvious eye witness!

    the entire cheney family is vile, contemptuous and not worth the spit needed to swallow their lies. each one of them makes me want to puke, eat it, and then puke again on top of them.

    This is the work of GLAD, one of those gradualist, state-by-state, out-of-date organizations some people complain about. The brief makes a great read. For details that you won’t get from an AP story, use

  5. JR says

    Two things:

    Is it me or does Mary Cheney bear a striking resemblance to Dana Carvey?

    Whomever is responsible for Adam Lambert’s hair should be shot! It’s one thing to be a gay pop star, but its WAY something else to walk around in a Liza Minnelli’s hair (unless you ARE Liza) WTF?

  6. Marco says

    Poor Sarah Lynne. One of your mommies is an asshole.

    Has’ Memoirs’ flopping driven Mariah over the edge – again?

    Fuck David Vitter and the diaper he rode in on.

  7. AlexInBoston says

    What you mean is that Dick Cheney now has two Bastard Grandchildren since they have no Married Straight parents and VA does not recognize any form or GAY relationship!! How sad for Dick to have to bear the burden of having two bastard children, reminds me GHWB when he introduced his “Brown Babies” the ones from his sons’ marriage to “That Mexican Woman”!!!!

  8. Robert In WeHo says

    As a person who depends on a guide dog, I hope they catch the son of a bitch who set his Pit Bull onto that woman’s Guide Dog. When they catch him, they should force him to live blind for a month so he can see just exactly why what he did was unforgivable…

  9. Paul R says

    @Mark: Please don’t make fun of Elvira. Oh wait, is that joke becoming stale?

    I think it’s worth noting that Lambert and Cheney are wearing very similar outfits here. Too bad she’s not wearing his makeup.

  10. Mark says

    @ Paul R
    As spokes-dykes for Humorless Lesbians of America Poe and Cheney are forbidden from smiling, laughing, wearing normal clothes, makeup or having a pulse. They are however contractually bound to look and behave like eastern European farm women, Soviet appartchiks or the models in this 80s Wendy’s commercial:

  11. Paul R says

    I’d doubt I’d be laughing much either if I were Dick Cheney’s lesbian daughter! Sure, she gets money and plum jobs, but still.

    I’m surprised she gave the baby her mother’s name (Lynne), even as a middle name. Lynne really gives Dick a run for the money in the Who Is More Evil game, and Mary is much closer to her father than her mother.
