THE DINNER PARTY: There are so many people we’ll get to maybe see or be close to this weekend at the National Equality March — President Obama, Lady Gaga, each other — that the Westboro Baptist Church is really the icing on the cake. Albeit icing culled from the blood of unborn pterodactyl babies:
You stupid fags think Obama gives a darn about you? No, he hates you. He is going to use your money and your resources and then when he shows himself for what he is, he will merely destroy you along with the rest of this nation of self-loathing hypocrites.
As Gawker points out, although the tone and intent is totally different, the message is quite similar to what Andrew Sullivan (our token gay republican pundit) is saying over at The Atlantic:
“There is nothing Obama can say at this self-satisfied, well-heeled Rotary Club dinner that he hasn’t said before. And the idea that simply showing up is something we should all be ecstatic over and grateful for is another sign of the low self-esteem and lack of self-respect [among HRC leaders].”
CAN WE TALK ABOUT HEALTH CARE AND HOW MUCH THAT WOULD HELP THE GAY PEOPLE INSTEAD OF YELLING AT OBAMA ABOUT GIVING A SPEECH TO JOE “I WANT TO EMAIL YOU EVERY F*CKING DAY” SOLOMNESE?
Anyhow! Politico wonders if it’s “more than just a show.” Yeah, so do we. I mean, Lady Gaga is gonna be there. She puts on quite a show though, so.
Oh have you seen this yet?… I know Slicey is going to yell at me, but wtf Log Cabin Republicans with this “PSA.” This is very preemptively manipulative. You can’t act like that unless it’s a reaction to the event you are criticizing, not a conjecture of a human being’s future actions:
GAY IN IRAQ: Meanwhile in Iraq, since February “a wave of gay hysteria” has hit the country, and Sunni and Shia forces have wound down their aggression towards each other and towards Americans and redirected it upon homosexuals as “agents of moral enforcement.” New York Magazine’s story opens with a story of “sexual deviants” who had their rectums glued shut and were force-fed laxatives and water until their insides exploded: THE HUNTED: From Baghdad — frightening reports of gay pogroms, where homosexual men are targeted, tortured, slayed. From new York — a scurry to find those same men before they are killed, and shepherd them to safety.
DADT: Anderson Cooper tries really, really, really hard to get Elaine Donnelly to make a good point against the repeal of DADT. MEANWHILE MY EARS ARE BLEEDING. Dan Choi is my favorite star of YouTube, BTW. I’m gonna stop this daily fix here so you can watch this video.
“You can go to senior citizens centers and collect all the signatures you want!”
JK: Okay one more thing, Mary Cheney’s having another baby.
