6a00d8341c730253ef0162febb20e3970d-800wi ABC's cross-dressing "comedy" Work It, already being protested by gay groups GLAAD and HRC, is getting predictably bad reviews: "The show’s comedy is predicated on the fact that none of Lee’s female co-workers seem able to discern the obvious (she’s a man, baby), probably because they are too busy living down to every lame stereotype associated with office women, up to and including the itty-bitty salads they nibble at lunch."

  1. Koch needs to shut his putrid piehole forever. He has forfeited any right to be relevant forever.
    Jacobs looks healthy and happy with Martone. Come on boys, kiss and make up already.

  2. Rick Santorum's daughter lacks self-awareness.

  3. Dear Elizabeth Santorum:

    Yes. Exactly. That's the point. You don't get to "project" your values and say they're best for everyone in the entire country.

  4. I'd put it more gently than "Cranky1". Mr. "How am I doing?" ex-mayor needs to plotz off to a nice warm Jewish care home with Sadie and Rose where he can complain about the food, and stop helping to elect Repugs only slightly less dangerous than Paul.

  5. The guy from CBS News is so on target. This silly system has to change.

  6. No, Andrew. Not "officially enacted this week." They were enacted last year and go into effect now.

  10. The HuffPo article that profiles Elizabeth Santorum says that she also opposes marriage equality. She also has a twitter account. Why don't we all let her know what we think of her position by tweeting @esantorum2012.

  11. I loved the article in the guardian UK about the planned LGBT retirement community outside Madrid. What an awesome idea! I loved reading the municipal council loves the project, would love some of these here in the US!

  12. I'd like to see Santorum or his daughter define their "values." "One man, one woman" is a formula, not a value. How about equality under the law, fairness, respect? Those are the values I recognize. I am repeatedly struck by the distressingly rudimentary understanding of morality expressed by bigots like Santorum -- it seems to be all about plumbing, not about people.

    And enshrining your sectarian religious biases in the Constitution? You're fighting 230 years of history there.

  13. I wonder what the Santorums would say to hetero couples who marry and choose not to procreate or can't? The latter really debunks the procreation nonsense regarding the reasonh for marriage, both religoius and civil. Why is it these religious bigots believe their beliefs should have a say in civil marriage which has absolutely nothing to do with religion? Civil marriage is an invention of the state, not of some supernatrual deity they can't prove even exists. Religious cults in America do NOT issue marriage licenses and as such, religious marriages are not valid without the issuance of civil license, the sole domain of secular state governments.
