  1. God! Watching those idiots is soooo painful. Thank goodness for John Stewart; he's the spoonful of sugar to help that crap go down.

  2. Newt is the perfect GOP candidate. Make people so scared that they will vote for you. It has worked for decades, I guess he is hoping it will work again.

  5. I only watched the debate long enough for them to talk about Iran. They are INSANE!!! The lot of them! (Well, Paul isn't insane on Iran, he's just insane.)

    It's amazing that they want to get our country in a war with a country that's significantly larger than Afghanistan and Iraq... COMBINED!

    It's a country with more resources and a more in-control government than Iraq and certainly Afghanistan, when we entered into wars with them. Pretty much the only way to go in there with men on the ground would be to re-institute the draft. Our volunteer army, just getting over being on two fronts, simply doesn't have the manpower.

    God help us all if one of those nuts gets into power. May Santorum be nominated so he can tank so badly that we take back the House and keep the Senate from his lack of coattails.

  6. Santorum's one word for himself is: fabulous!

  7. It would be nice if you'd post video links that could be watched outside of the US. More and more of your links have a message "sorry this video is not available in your location".

  9. @Tim He wasn't asking for your "help" and I'm sure he could find the video elsewhere if he wanted to. No need to be such an ass about it. It IS annoying when the videos won't play.

  10. "Their behavior has as much to do with the stagnation of our movement and the stirring of strong opposition to it as anything else does."

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with being an effiminate guy. The stigma and vilification of obviously gay men is just another excuse to marginalize "The Other" among an already minimized group. The problem comes from within the people who ostensibly blame the victim. The attitude is exactly analogous to blaming rape victims for wearing provacative clothing or mugging victims for being vulnerable. It is exactly the same as Santorum's lunacy that women must be controlled, they must be denied birth control to keep them from doing other than what *he* thinks it's supposed to be. The immorality springs from those who denigrate gays, or women, for any reason, anytime, to any degree, simply for who they are or how they move and talk. The judgement comes from social stereotypes, gender roles and arbitrary pressures about "the way things are supposed to be." The anagonism experienced by those who have a problem with gay men in general, or effeminate gay men in particular, stems from the mindset of those very people who have a problem with people who are different. Strict control, arbitrary regimentation, stifling order, rigid conformity, anachronistic and archaic tradition, immature, stunted or nonexistant critical thinking skills, diminished empathy, straw man/non sequitur & false equivalence logical fallacies. (That's the Republican candidate field in a nutshell, especially Santorum and Gingrich.) They are the ones with the problem, not the men they target for derision, though they would have the subjects of their animus pay for their problem. Apologizing for people who have a problem with gay people only gives them more power to marginalize all LGBT people. Rick, you're essentially giving permission to our oppressors. You're not making things better but are contributing to the problem. That's as unacceptable as any other anti-gay prejudice.
