RoadDavid Mixner on Ted Cruz's extortion plot: "This craziness must stop now and this is a 'line drawn in the sand' that is worth fighting for with all our strength. If we bend to the crazies then there will be no end to their extortion. In fact, what will end is democracy itself as a tiny extremist minority representing less than 20% of Americans have their way."

RoadFormer Georgia legislator Roger Hines attacks Kennessaw State University's decision to celebrate 'Gay Pride month' in October: "For that matter, KSU’s celebration of Gay Pride is an affront to the entire state since the university, the state’s third largest, receives tax money generated by citizens across Georgia. No one who has lived in Georgia for six months could be in doubt about the state’s predominant culture. We aren’t Washington State, and Atlanta isn’t San Francisco either, or not yet."

I’m committing right now to stop flying. It’s not worth the climate...We have to do everything we can, every day to reverse CO2 emissions. There is no other way that makes sense.”

RoadGay Republican Peter Thiel and Ted Cruz are tight: "t's an odd marriage of interests, the sort Cruz otherwise opposes as a matter of principle: Peter Thiel is a pot-smoking gay man, which makes him the kind of person Cruz supporters would like to launch into some sort of Martian exile. But Thiel is also, crucially, a massively rich bussinessman, which is enough for Cruz to shelve his Tea Party druthers and accept hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Silicon Valley luminary."

  1. Ok, finally, a great example. THAT homophobic tweet WAS homophobic, it was ALSO said in anger, but not in the moment! So it suggests he IS homophobic.

    Contrast is someone in a fight yelling the F word, that's an insult it's purpose is to make you feel bad. It doesn't REALLY say anything to their greater character.

  2. Peter Thiel should ESAD. What a Quisling.

  3. Republican Rep Steve King is at the WWII Memorial telling the Veterans that the White House shut the memorial and is responsible for the government shutdown.

    TP asshat Cruz election was facilitated by major money from a GAY REPUBLICAN, Peter Thiel. Thanks again to Citizens United. Another one of the reasons why I'll never use Facebook or PayPal again.

  4. Sometimes that James Franco can take some great photographs--not all the time, but sometimes. That GQ cover is fierce.

  5. Fraser Mullen's tweet was a mistake? Yes--a big one.

  6. I dunno. I'm not a Cooperpooper, but let's be real. The greatest privilege in his life was being born a Vanderbilt.

  7. the media has failed us. The Tea Party is not filled with Libertarians...they are Teavangelicals...and Mr Theil should be smart enough to realize this.

    Sen Cruz is a Christiianist, who believes in a Calvinistic Select who go to heaven and should rule the country...ask the senator's daddy.

  8. I don't know what it is about James Franco pictures, but he always looks like he needs a shower to me.

  9. The Republican party leaders better wake up and take control of their party again. Are they running scared because of the Tea Party radicals? Cruz is just awful as a "leader" of the country. NO one should support him or those of his ilk as they will ruin this country.

  10. No tea, no shade, but choosing between Ellen's ex Alexandra and Portia's ex Francesca...

    Such a choice.

  11. Bjorn Borg has run his clothing shops in Europe for years now. I don't see anything big about opening a new store elsewhere.
