 roadMinnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty goes off on anti-LGBT discrimination, crossdressing teachers and more: "My general view on all of this is that marriage is to be defined as being a union of a man and a woman.

Early on we decided as a country and as a state that there was value in a man and a woman being married in terms of impact on children and the like, and we want to encourage that."

  3. Neil Patrick Harris shines as bright as his tree, a great role model for any gay kid, especially on coming out and being able to work in Hollywood.

  4. No Mo Mo, No Me. I will not be watching any longer.

  5. A couple of thoughts on looking at links associated with this article.

    I find people who can bring themselves to say "menstruation" to be suspect.

    The age of the son forced to have sex with a prostitute is relevant. 14 is a crime. 35 is a joke.

  6. It's sad when gays have ugly Christmas decor.

  7. If I want to know how to sexually harass a teenage boy whose parents have entrusted to my care - or how to have sex with a prostitute while wearing a diaper - or how to humiliate my wife by behaving like a school girl over my Argentine mistress - or how to pick-up men in an airport restroom - or how to get White House press credentials for a male escort - then. . . then I will look to Republicans -- what I will never do, however, is look to any Republican for the definition of marriage since I prefer not to base my relationships on lazy, pathetic, cowardly lies told to get votes from people too stupid to be allowed into my house to do the floors.

  8. Frankly, Pawlenty's outright bigotry is refreshing. Too many people have spent too much time running around in circles, trying in vain to come up with convoluted reasons for why same-sex marriage is wrong. The ones who come right out and say that they don't like us, or don't think we're equal, well at least they're being forthright. I'm a little tired of hearing from people who talk about respect when they secretly want to imprison us all.

  9. Good by Nurse Jackie. Even Anna Deavere Smith can't save Edie Falco without Mo Mo. Story lines with the kids are boring and Jackie's Brit Dr pal was lame. Doctors and Nurses are rarely friends

  10. Bitch Knoooows she ain't nothin' without the mo mo! If he is not deeeply in the foibles and fables of next season...count me out!!

  11. Tim Ptooey is one of the leading contenders for the GOP nom in '12. Excellent. He can cling to his appratheid beliefs that aren't really cognitively significant...and aren't really beliefs, either. There's this special something that he's unable to name...hmmmm, doesn't sound so special if it can't be described or identified through any other means than his emotional register. But that's a hell of an argument, isn't it? You're wrong because I...want to be that way? Replace that with any of the other appartheid rhetoric and you have the exact same formula...there's something special about aryans, or germans...there's something special about hutus...chimps have very similar in group/out group behavior...but then again, tim ptooey doesn't believe in evolution.

    And he shares that particular belief (worded the same way, too) with Barack Obama. Let's not get carried away thinking we've got...allies in the democrats.

  12. What is missed is Neil Patrick Harris' full 'tweet' (I laughed at his statement (double entendre?), just the wording put visions in my head - NOT sugarplums):

    "Tree trimmed. Balls hung. Good times. Lookie:"

  13. Well, Doug, I'm sure N.P.H. finds scroogey trolls equally repugnant so you're even. Happy holidays!

  14. That just sucks about Momo.

  15. Haaz Sleiman's talent was being wasted on that show as a less-than minor character. This is a blessing in disguise. He deserves better.

    Posted by: Mark | Dec 25, 2009 7:11:05 PM

  16. The thing with writing Mo Mo off the show is that he was the closest character to Jackie who had no idea about any of her secrets. Now they're just avoiding his reaction to learning that she's been keeping her family secret not just from doctors and administrators, but from him.
