  1. couldn't you run one of the countless videos of the Australian PM doing a swan dive off her high heels? I intend to lobby a local Chinoiserie to take down her photo.

  2. I loathe Julia Gillard. What a pathetic excuse for a leader.

  3. Scott Lively links gay man's death from meningitis to divine judgment.

    Of course one can't but wonder what he thinks Newtown was.

  4. People like Gillard aren't leaders...they're ostriches (except she has nothing that could adorn antyhing).

  6. If only Australians would vote for the Greens next election we could get rid of the gay-hating Labor and Liberal parties. The swing voters who keep putting these parties in power are the problem here. If you got rid of the party last time what makes you think if you vote them back in they do a better job this time?

  7. Gillard 'couldn't care less' that Australia's marriage laws designate a segment of the population as second class citizens. This is you place in history Ms Gillard.

    A young gay mans death to meningitis, a vanished life, a love lost ... and religious right zealot Scott Lively uses it to proclaim his knowledge of God's mind ... it's divine judgement. How very proud of yourself you must be Mr Lively.

  8. Gillard will, no doubt, be as hated as Thatcher...and with good reason.

  9. On a purient note: I took a celebrity "ass quiz" a few years back, where some website posted a bunch of naked male butts and you had to match the owner's name to their cheeks. Out of some 20 contenders, hands down the best ass was--surprisingly?--Ian Zierling's. The Chippendales are in for a treat, as are their audiences.

    On a realistic note: rough day politically--the gun vote was seriously depressing.
