Attorney For Pat Robertson’s Anti-Gay Legal Outfit Fired For Alleged Wide Stance With (Possibly) Under-Age Boys

Oh look, a poorly produced video about some guy named “Jim,” a.k.a “our bitch who got us drunk.” (No, not Jim Newell, although we will make him our bitch and let him get us drunk if he asks nicely.) This video is about Jim Henderson, formerly a senior attorney at the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), who was fired by Pat Robertson’s outfit last week for “maybe” being gay.

Right-Wing Anti-Mexican Arizona Sheriff Has Gay Mexican Lover

Here is the hot American president’s day news for those of you who didn’t spend the weekend searching for “gay wingnut arizona sheriff tries to deport gay mexican lover” on Ask Jeeves: Beloved right-wing anti-Mexican Arizona sheriff Paul Babeu has been caught trying to deport his homosexual Mexican lover, because Paul Babeu is a homosexual with an unquenchable thirst for the semen of illegal Mexican men. It is very common for anti-Mexican Republicans to have undocumented Mexican servants and gardeners and nannies, of course, and it is exceedingly common — almost required by the RNC — for Republican politician men to be self-hating homosexuals, and it is utterly expected that any Republican in Arizona is going to be a comic book villain/idiot. But to get all three in one person (a sheriff, even!) running for Congress is just a bit overboard. Read more on Right-Wing Anti-Mexican Arizona Sheriff Has Gay Mexican Lover…

Michele Bachmann Leaves ‘Gay Marcus’ Out of Family Xmas Video

Oh look, Michele Bachmann doesn’t even know the names of the random “children” she assembled to make this dumb Christmas video to remind everyone that her gay husband Marcus is so gay that he’s not even allowed in the family Christmas video. “Don’t forget the reason for the season,” sez Michele … which is marginalizing any gay family members during the holidays.

Indiana GOP Lawmaker Trolls Craigslist Ads For… (You Can Guess)

Indiana state Rep. Phillip Hinkle has never read the news, or the Internet, or the writing on the wall that overwhelmingly suggests, “If you are a Republican lawmaker picking up gay hookers on Craigslist, you will be caught, naked and ashamed.” Hinkle ran into trouble after soliciting a gay Craigslist prostitute who balked during their encounter when Hinkle oh-so-casually mentioned he was a state legislator. When the hooker tried to leave, Hinkle grabbed him somewhere naughty to prevent him from going out before inexplicably offering the 18-year-old man his personal iPad, Blackberry and $100 (hottt gay mugging fantasy?). “Here are my bank records, my wife’s phone number, a few of my attempts at homoerotic poetry, a cellphone video of the Filipino guy who broke my heart last summer and my favorite photo of the Pope. Feel free to forward all of these things to the first newspaper you find on the way home.” Romantic! And so did Hinkle’s family eventually start to call this BlackBerry, looking for him?

Fox News Refuses to Let Gay Candidate Join Iowa Presidential Debate

There is some other GOP presidential candidate we never actually even heard of named Fred Karger, but he is according to some poll tied with Tim Pawlenty, which feels about right. Karger is also one of the vanishingly rare openly gay Republicans people hear about on quiet days when the wind is still, which means Fox News will not be allowing him to participate in their upcoming Iowa presidential debate. WHY EVER NOT?? Here, let us make a simile: showing a gay on Fox News who might “do something gay” like pull some kind of gay guerrilla move like blowing a kiss to Rick Santorum or mention gays don’t deserve the death penalty or WORSE YET MENTION THAT GAY MARRIAGE IS IRRELEVANT TO THE ECONOMY, on screen, live, is equal to the kind of terror Fox News debate producers feel when they imagine an out-of-left-field Michele Bachmann – Herman Cain french kiss.

Gay Republicans Go Off Message, Embrace Camp

We know that it’s not easy being a gay Republican! We can ignore the fact that the Republican Party, as a policy, would rather that gays not exist, or that, if they do exist, their emotional attachments not be given any recognition by any level of government whatsoever; people will do some crazy stuff for lower taxes! No, the real sad thing about being gay in the Republican Party is that you’d have to spend all your time with people utterly lacking in any sense of whimsy or theatricality, whose idea of a funny joke is a picture of Barack Obama with a bone through his nose and whose idea of drag is dressing up as Patrick Henry. Well, Los Angeles’s gay Republicans are tired of fitting in with this gaggle of squares, and will be “out and proud” this pride weekend by dipping their balls into the mouths of various politicians.

Oh Good, Because It Was Getting To Be Weird That Bo Obama Hadn’t Nabbed A Book Deal Yet

48% of Americans and 0% of Lipton executives feel that American taxes are just fine they way they are. [AMERICAblog] There’s a new book in the works called Bo, America’s Commander-in-Leash. Meghan McCain is not at all involved in its publication but will still probably received a high six-figure advance.

Radical Oral Roberts Lawsuit Implies… Hypocrisy!

Oral Roberts University is like one of those super-Christian schools, so whenever there’s even a vague rumor or allegation about sexual misconduct among its leadership, we’re obligated to spread it, spread it more and continue spreading it forever and always long past its expiration date. And then if it turns out we missed a certain corner, we will add a second coat of spreading it. Onward! Read more on Radical Oral Roberts Lawsuit Implies… Hypocrisy!…
 

Daily Briefing: ‘The guy is doing pro bono work and helping gay activists?’

• Following news of Roberts‘ involvement in 1996 gay rights case, the White House “immediately sought to reassure [his] conservative backers. . . but it appeared that not all of them had been convinced.” Limbaugh: “There’s no question the people on the right are going to say: ‘Wait a minute. Wait a minute! The guy is doing pro bono work and helping gay activists?'” [NYT, LAT] • Roberts‘ private practice work did not always jibe with conservative agenda, yet “some activists on both sides remain secure in their conviction that he is an emphatic conservative who will move the high court to the right.” Kristol: “I don’t think this is serious. Most conservatives are very pleased.” [WP] • Bush and company plan major push for Roberts during dead of August. [WT] • Novak told by CNN to “take some time off” after on-air scuffle with Carville. [WP, NYT] • Deficit forecast worsens: “legislation passed by Congress this year will add $35 billion to next year’s budget deficit and $115 billion through 2010.” [USAT] • Rehnquist briefly hospitalized for fever. [WP, NYT] • Death toll rises in Iraq: 18 U.S. troops died on Wednesday. Bush: “We will stay on the offense against these people.” [WP, WT] Read more on Daily Briefing: ‘The guy is doing pro bono work and helping gay activists?’…
 

Judge Roberts and Insidious Implication

We’re sure Hotline didn’t mean anything by it, but we know the first thing that came to mind this morning upon reading these two items in a row: • SCOTUS nominee John Roberts “conceded” he should have said he was registered to lobby on behalf of the cosmetics industry in the questionnaire he submitted to the Senate (Newsday).

Gleefully Exploiting the Plame Investigation

The Advocate today drew attention to the testimony of Karl Rove aide Israel Hernandez before the Plame investigation grand jury on Friday. Naturally, the buzz is about the ever-tightening noose around Rove and what that means for the president who promised to “restore honor and integrity to the office.” And The Advocate would like us to know that Hernandez is a big gay.

In Which Wonkette Is Accused of Terrorism

We’re going to have to take issue with this: It is JUST like the one time when That Wonkete accused Our President George W. Bush of being a homosexual because of the way he was holding his hand in a “nelly” way…what if Our Soldiers who are fighting so bravely out there find out what Wonkette is saying and think that is true!!? Well what if they believed her and stopped following orders from Our President because he is a gay!? If even one service man (or woman just so you know I’m not so called SEXIST!!) dies because of those things that Wonkette and dems have been saying then that is ONE TOO MANY. First of all, we think the brave men (and women!) of the armed forces would probably still fight even if the President were gay. (Some of them might even fight a little harder.) Second: We didn’t accuse George Bush of being gay because he holds his hand in a “nelly way.” Read more on In Which Wonkette Is Accused of Terrorism…
 

Roberts Probably Straight (Not That There’s Anything Wrong with That)

We’re sort of thrilled that our joking about John Roberts being gay has been officially elevated to a “whisper campaign” intended to bring him down. Does that mean we can take credit for ruining the Kerry-Edwards ticket, too? We’re sure John Kerry would appreciate some help in shouldering the blame.

Rush Limbaugh Bends Over, Grabs Inappropriate Cliche

Rush Limbaugh, showing his usual tact and bringing back his favorite image, comments on Ken Mehlman’s speech to the NAACP: He’s going to go down there and basically apologize for what has come to be known as the Southern Strategy, popularized in the Nixon administration. He’s going to go down there and apologize for it. In the midst of all of this, in the midst of all that’s going on, once again, Republicans are going to go bend over and grab the ankles. This might be the first time that we’ve ever heard an apology for exploitative racism compared to ass-fucking, but we hope it’s not the last. Next on the Rush Limbaugh show: Affirmative action is like a rim job! Read more on Rush Limbaugh Bends Over, Grabs Inappropriate Cliche…
 

The Man Who Spreads (the Word of) Santorum

Raw Story is reporting that the director of communications for vocal homophobe Senator Rick Santorum is a big gay. A big black gay. And sort of hot-looking! Again, we are confused by the strategy of outing gay Republicans. Given the Senator’s reputation as a priggish thug, this is the best thing to happen to him since his strong anti-bestiality stance got him the entire Pennsylvania goat vote. It’s not like hiring a homosexual makes Santorum a hypocrite, either. He’s never demanded they be banned from the workplace, he just thinks they’re going to hell.
