  1. Ugh, semen cocktail book? I'll get mine from the tap, thanks. Mitch McConnell is a sack of sh*t but we already knew that. And the Vatican downloading porn, it just keeps getting better and better, they will sink their own ship.

  4. @ Onnyjay:

    I'm sure Simon Cowell doesn't give 2 s**ts what some uppity queen who leaves bitchy comments on towleroad thinks of him and his opinions. Besides,he made it clear that he doesn't have a problem with gays and doesn't see being gay as something to be ashamed of. He's on our side. Stifle yourself!

  5. Just what Massachusetts needs, an "individual" running for Kerry's seat who is running on fumes. Marriage is legal in Massachusetts or isn't he aware of that (some representative!). He's running for Massachusetts senator not some other state and he wouldn't be a Federal employee until after he's *cough* elected. Besides aren't there enough GOProuders who might be offended by his request who could be possible donors? I thought Republicans took the money and ran.

  8. Seeing that photo of The Anvil brought a flood of memories of some very fun nights and some fantastic drag shows. What I wouldn't give to see Chico Starr introducing The Amazing Uba just one more time.
