And that's not the only issue. Cain is competing with Perry, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum for social conservatives, and that means he needs to do respectably in Iowa, where they make up a major chunk of the GOP electorate. But Cain has little organization in the state… and some his staff in the state quit because they didn't think the campaign was putting in a serious effort."

    Hmm, lets see. Chris Brown. Says homophobic things, then denies them. Has hot girlfriend, and beats her. No i would never have guessed he has had sex with men… 😉

  2. Michael Bedwell says

    In convincing the 9th Circuit to kill the ruling by the District Court, Barack Obama—contradicting the eloquent legal reasoning in his reversal on defending DOMA—asserted that the Constitution stops at the door to the Pentagaon—that discharges of tens of thousands of patriotic gay and lesbian service members was justified because they were a threat to their nation’s security. It also empowers the Pentagon’s refusal to give equal treatment to gay troops serving NOW by denying them the protections against harassment and discrimination blacks, women, et al., have under the Military Equal Opportunity Program, as well as deny legally married gay military couples benefits NOT banned by DOMA. Finally, it gives on a legal civil platter a Santorum, Perry, Bachmann or Whomever Whenever the power to bring back some form of the ban itself. Thus, it is an indefensible, conscious betrayal of historic proportions in the name of “deference” to the military which it’s really nothing more but deference to the homohating dinosaurs still prowling the Pentagon’s Jurassic Park.

    On mushrooms: ecstasy does the same thing if it’s made properly. Course, long-term abuse can also lead to depression and memory problems.

    On Chris Christie: yes his weight will be an issue. Today’s Americans expect their presidents to be reasonably fit, even if many voters are not. Christie is morbidly obese, which poses health risks and reflects a lack of self-control or a health condition, neither of which is optimal in a leader. Oh, and he seems like a jerk.

    On Chris Brown: I hope it’s not true, because he’s a jerk. But the wording in those seems like it was written by someone trying to imagine how gays talk (“I let you f*ck the sh*t out of me” does not sound like something a closeted guy would say, especially in an email/private tweet.)

  4. Wayne says

    I agree with Paul about Christies weight. It’s not a factor because he’s fat, it’s because he’s obese and that’s a major health issue. And anyone who says you can be obese and healthy is probably obese themselves.

  5. Bill Cooney says

    Someone needs to remind Christie that even Mike Huckabee had the good sense to drop a few pounds! Plus, what kind of image does he present to his children when he’s so FAT?

  6. bobbyjoe says

    Saying Chris Christie’s weight is not an issue reminds me of those who tried to argue that John McCain’s age was not an issue. OF COURSE it’s an issue, particularly since most GOP nominees tend to choose a rabidly insane tea-party type as their running mate. One burger too many, Christie’s heart finally goes ka-flooey, and we’re left with President Bachmann. Remember, had something happened to the guy at the top ticket of the last two GOP candidates, we’d have had President Cheney or President Palin. So, yeah, it’s a major issue.

  7. Inside says

    I’m old enough to remember when the gay community had a boycott against Target for donating to conservative causes. I guess all is forgiven now. And who alerted the AP that Michelle was going shopping?

    WARNING: If you see and eat mushrooms that look like those pictured – reddish caps with white markings or bumps – they will not improve your personality, unless being really ill or dead makes you more congenial.

    The mushroom pictured is Amanita muscaria, a dangerous mushroom if not carefully prepared and used correctly. If you do not know exactly what you are doing, do not consume Amanita muscaria. Check out the Wikipedia article, and other sources, but do not take this mushroom lightly.

    A puppy sandwiched in a hot dog bun . . . I know it’s supposed to be humorous, but it just rubs me the wrong way. There’s too much abuse of animals out there to be posting these kinds of images. In my area, a group of pervs once tried to barbecue a housecat.
