  1. since the GOPeunuchs aren't allowed into CPAC, i'll help 'em out by sharing Romney's speech for them, here:

    *ahem*

    "Hey, other white people. I'm a rich son who inherited millions, and I believe in a business owner's right to run their business any way he pleases, and not so much about the rights of his workers. Notice i said "his" - i don't believe women have any place in the business world, unless they're in a kitchen or in one of my many binders. Now, aint it great those gays aren't here? WHOOEEE, I just can't stand them. Now, I know you may think a man with 18 grandkids shouldn't say anti-gay things because the law of numbers are against me, and I probably have a gay grandchild or four, but as I learned from Elohim from His star-planet kingdom of Kolob - if you wear magical underpants you can convince yourself of anything. Also, Jesus didnt' care about feeding or clothing the poor because He didn't like losers. I'm Mitt Romney"

  2. Once again, Ke$hit aims for "shocking", lands on "disgusting".

  3. I'm Canadian and my opinions are SO important to those of you in the USA.

    Maybe someday I'll get out of my mom's basement and wash the fake makup bruises off my face and get some sun...

    But for now, get sued to my tedious and self righteous banter !

  4. @ Little Kiwi, thanks for the laugh. It probably won't be far off from this in reality...

  5. Nothing is more relevant or insightful than a failed presidential candidate. @.@

  6. Re: Ender's Game, I certainly won't be paying to see it.

    However, in some fanboy circles, it's still cool to be a homophobic a-hole. The only question is whether there's enough to return a profit on a film. Possibly...

  7. Shia LaDouche is insufferable. And so are those fawning over him in the leaked emails.

  8. Sen. Grassley must be unaware that most of the males in this country had something done to their bodies without their permission.

  9. Also, a constitutional right to privacy (in the form of physical autonomy) was not established in Roe v. Wade, but was first implied in Skinner v. Oklahoma in 1942, when forced sterilization of "habitual criminals" was outlawed and was first discussed in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965. The fundamental right to privacy is older than Roe v. Wade.

  10. John Perez might be a good choice for Sec of Labor, but he's an outstanding Speaker of the California State Assembly. I would hate to see him leave that key leadership post. He is making a more of a difference working in that position than he would being a "symbol" in the Cabinet.

  11. Can you imagine the impact if one tenth of what was spent in Iraq and Afghanistan was devoted to research on cancer and/or HIV?

  12. Orson Scott Card is a certified and certifiable homophobic piece of sh*t, cuckoo-nutso on the topic of gays, and he's one of the PRODUCERS of the Ender's Game movie. So there is NO WAY to divorce this movie from Card's very current political positions and activities.

    To me, encouraging a boycott of the film is very worthy project for our community. Gays and our allies shouldn't see it, and that includes film reviewers.

  13. LITTLEKIWI- I don't think Mormons believe in Jesus Christ.

  14. I laughed and laughed and laughed at that penguin.

    Was there something else worth commenting on?
