  1. Re the 3rd degee at Ben Gurion: what's their definition of "reasonable limits"? Israel is second to none in their airport and airline security, which involves closely watching the way people behave under unusual circumstances (i.e. weird and invasive questions).

  2. Re: Tel Aviv. They look through my personal items too, but I never turn it into an international gay incident. They look at *everyone's* personal items. They ask *everyone* personal questions. That's why airplanes in/out of Israel are not hijacked.

    "The embassy told the Foreign Ministry about the complaint, saying that the security check had damaged Israeli public relations efforts."

    That was the whole point, wasn't it? This smells like a set-up. Sorry, but I just don't buy the anti-Israel BS.

  3. WTF is Choi doing at a Muslim scarf protest? This is getting ridiculous. On another note, it's also ridiculous that Hollywood could not create some sort of museum for all of the memorabilia from its past. Instead the pieces are being dispersed around the world, and a chance to preserve history is gone forever.

  4. I watched the Obama impersonator and was completely confused. I don't think he was that racial or anti-gay, but he was very often anti-Republican. It was a very bizarre performance in front of a crowd of Republicans.

  5. The headline for the Obama impersonator is not accurate.It should read. Obama impersonator loudly applauded while telling racist and homophobic jokes but pulled offstage when he tells jokes about Republican politicians.

  6. The prices for the auction items are rather disgusting. No item of clothing is worth nearly $6 million, and anyone who would pay that---no matter how rich---needs to assess their priorities in life.

    If they're not making similar donations to reduce US and global poverty, they are horrendous.

  7. The Obama impersonator was cheered and applauded for making racial jokes about President Obama, he was yanked off stage for making jokes about the republican candidates . Someone at towleroad should fix that.

  8. The Obama impersonator merely showed how spineless and petty Republicans can be. His jokes struck a nerve.

  9. Dan Choi is getting to be an annoying attention whore.

  11. I love Raja. I've loved Sutan since the first time I saw him on ANTM.

    But that is one of the worst songs I have ever heard in my entire life.
