On its Facebook page, MERC is described as a 'grass roots campaign to educate voters on same sex marriage.' MERC’s website, however, is a deluge of misinformation, confused political analyses, and some truly cringe-worthy writing."

  1. Aww, that's cute. Another gay Republican who thinks that he's in a party that actually supports getting "away from your bedroom," rather than being in one that demonizes us for who we love.

  2. He said, "a live and let live Republican." LOL!

  3. Richard Tisei is a great guy. I'm a Democrat in his district and hope to see that he wins. The best way to change anything (including the GOP) is to change it from within.

  4. Glee's doing a second Sh1tney Spears tribute? No wonder Glee is going down the drain.

  5. "Change it from within" meaning what? gay rights only? cuz Repubs ain't changin' NOTHIN' for the poor & other marginalized groups including women. unless you mean change FOR THE WORSE.

  6. That 'Maine Equal Rights Center' website is nonsensical to the point of being hilarious. The non sequiturs reminded me of the video posted a few days ago, of the woman testifying before the Lincoln City Council.

  8. Trump is a classic buffoon right out of Moliere. He thinks absolutely everybody is a loser compared to him. And I guess that includes various bond investors who have probably lost over a billion on his various failed projects over the years. He declares bankruptcy, screws everybody else, and just moves on.

  9. @GARBAGE, Glee is going down the drain because usually it sucks. Britney Spears is the only episode of Glee I'll be watching..

    And just for the record, the last Britney Spears tribute episode they had was the highest rated episode in the history of the show, so keep hatin' :)

    Donald Trump is the loser.. he makes my blood boil!! Ugh... will he just die already..

  10. Your coverage is misleading. The Indonesian police refused to issue the permit for the Lady Gaga concert, forcing her to cancel. She did not cancel on her own due to pressure.

    "National police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar, responding to the pressure, said Tuesday that the permit for her June 3 "Born This Way Ball" concert had been denied."

  11. I call b.s. on "Actual Bay Stater," who is almost certainly a Republican. Or an idiot (not that there's much difference). If you put Tisei in office, then whatever he claims his personal feelings are, he will vote for and support a Republican leadership who is virulently antigay and will block any and all attempts at legislation such as ENDA, or DOMA repeal. Period.

  12. Glenn...the GOP will retain their majority this November any way. As Victory Fund states, the more openly gay elected officials we have, the more minds we'll change. This guy will be in the GOP caucus room able to denounce the grotesque attacks from the far right and change many more minds that way, than a typical Dem would from across the aisle.

  16. Richard Tisei was the Republican Lieutenant-Governor nominee in the last general election. If Baker, the Republican candidate, had won, Massachusetts would have an openly gay Lieutenant-Governor, and I believe he would have been America's first such openly gay L.G. And the odds would have been quite good he could have gone on to become governor, still could. The fact he's gay wouldn't be an issue in Massachusetts.

  17. "Look my client is a very tall man, weighs about 300 pounds and is also a personal trainer so a private judge could absolutely look at him and wonder how much in damages he really suffered. "

    It's surprising that, in a case against a man whose religion holds an alien warlord brought humans to Earth in a DC-8 like spacecraft, the plaintiff's lawyer comes off as the most deranged.

  18. "This guy will be in the GOP caucus room able to denounce the grotesque attacks from the far right"

    Like he does now? Could you point us to somewhere where he has "denounced" those attacks?

  19. The Tequila Party was drinking the stuff if they call Obama immigrant friendly. First, he put an anti-immigrant bigot like Janet Napolitano in charge of Homeland Security. Second, his administration is deporting people at the fastest rate in US history. His deportations reached over 400,000 last year alone. He is bad on medical marijuana as well. While he wants states' rights on marriage, he violates states' rights on medicinal marijuana with record number of raids.

  20. "This guy will be in the GOP caucus room able to denounce the grotesque attacks from the far right and change many more minds that way"

    Is there any evidence, anywhere, that this has ever happened?

  21. as for the Romney ad espousing the "Obama Economy", ask yourselves, those who allowed themselves to be part of this interview, who the hell do you think fought to keep your benefits flowing like a river, or a health care policy that enables you to get insurance coverage, or the continuation of and extension of food stamps, and other social programs!! You stupid putz, it WASN'T THE GOP!!!! Idiots supporting someone and a party that goes against your own personal self interests!! You are shameful ungrateful ignorant tools!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. This may be a small issue but follow the links to the Cher story and show her some love. The comments are all from atrocious conservatives. Let's encourage Cher to keep speaking her mind.

    Posted by: mike128 | May 15, 2012 11:18:34 PM

  23. And now from shallow hollow: that dress of GaGa's looks so good I forgot about her nose.

    I don't know what's the matter with me but Tom Cruise has gone totally stale ever since he fell off the Burj Khalifa.

    As for the two masseussisesses - or whatever the plural is - John will be spending his money well, but well, what on earth do you say to your wife. Domestic details please.

  24. The problem with Tisei's comments are that they can mean two entirely different things.

    The fact is that he isn't the one who gets to decide whether or not he is "the gay congressman." That's the way he's going to be seen whether he wants to be or not. And as one of the few gay people in congress, he's going to be watched both by the community and our opponents.

    He doesn't have the option of "just being the guy who happens to be gay." What he has is the option of how he deals with being "the gay congressman."

    If what he means is that he will take being gay seriously and be aware that he is one of the few voices for his gay constituents and uniquely placed to make sure that LGBT people are treated equally, while still making sure that the other people he represents are being represented and that their needs are his number one job, fine.

    If on the other hand, he's announcing that he plans to screw over the gay community, which, frankly, is far more likely, then no.

    The biggest indicator will be whether he votes Republican party line on anti-gay issues.

  25. The main reason Tisei is ahead in the polls is that the current congressman (Tierney) is a real slimeball. The Feds raided his illegal gambling operation in the state and then he moved it to Antigua. His wife was in on the ordeal too as his bookkeeper.

    As for Josh Hutchinson, my guess is he plays for our team over the fact that he admitted to watching a TV marathon on lifetime.
