  1. "... shamelessly demonize religion ..."

    Poor Michelle can't set aside her own anti-atheist bigotry for just one sentence.

    Atheists don't believe in demons, and so don't demonize anyone.

  2. Pointing out the appalling bigotry of some religious people is not "demonizing religion". It's the natural social disapproval of behavior motivated by Biblically-justifiable but no longer socially-acceptable biases.

  5. Michelle Malkin, the right wingers' Queen of Screech.

    Now then, about Sean Avery's buttcrack in that photo shoot, more please!

  6. The Tilda Swindon photo reminds more of Tallulah Bankhead that Auntie Mame.

  7. I finally went to the Million Mom Facebook page. I hate to say it but they really pissed me off.

  8. When I read the JCPenny's article last week on Yahoo, I knew that the 40,000 moms were going to take credit for the business decline. The article specifically made a point of the decline being based on the decisions made by the CEO. So much for the veracity of the Liars for Jesus groups.

  9. I doubt Lindsay Lohan's Elizabeth Taylor is nothing but publicity photos. So who is Richard Burton?

    Posted by: MarkUs | May 21, 2012 8:48:31 PM

  10. @ Jay That's likely because it is a photo celebrating transvestitism and drag rather than her role as Auntie Mame. Even so, it is IMO a fantastic photo, of a fantastic artist, and would be a rather interesting take on Auntie Mame. Gods and goddesses, I love Tilda Swinton!

  11. One Millions Moms saved JC Penny from having an even worse loss. Another month of boycotting and they probably would have broke even.

    Sarah Palin...truly the gift that keeps on giving.

  12. @Derek Pearce - Amen to the butt crack comment. It was quite difficult to stop looking at that picture.

  13. I'm sorry, is there something I'm missing about the genius of Terry Richardson? You put on his dirty old man glasses, he takes your picture...is it just the same thing over and over again?

  14. Hmm climbing mount everest - NO! 50 cent is pro gay? Wow and no Lindsay is a mess, poor thing

  15. Nick Jonas,first a cameo on Submissions Only & now AIDS Walk, "evolving"?

  16. Lohan as Elizabeth is ridiculous, an immently total flop. There have been women who looked close, but still so far away. It can't be done.
