  IMAGINE if Ted Cruz was president of the gays

Ted Cruz Would Be Very Bad News For Gays, If He Were President LOL

Not immaculate, but OK
Canadian Ted Cruz declared his candidacy for emperor of the US Americas today, having decided that the best way to run a presidential campaign is to blow your load really early, like a teenage girl trying to be the first say “FIRST!!!” in a Perez Hilton comment thread. He, of course, did his premature ejaculation announcement speech at Dead Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, the only known educational institution to have the distinction of being the safety school you go to if you can’t get into University of Phoenix. Speechifying at Liberty is a surefire dogwhistle, when you want to reassure hateful, stupid idiots that you are just as hateful and stupid as they are. Falwell, after all, famously blamed the gays, the abortionists and the ACLU for 9/11. Read more on Ted Cruz Would Be Very Bad News For Gays, If He Were President LOL…

Arkansas Does Not Need Your Gay Business, Gays!

Oh, we are SNEERING at our home state of Arkansas right now, so hard. You see, we grew up in Little Rock during the days of Bill Clinton, back when Arkansas was Democrat Tuff, in a very blue dog way of course, but never mind. Now it’s been overrun by the same extremist wingnuts who have taken over state legislatures and governors’ mansions all over the South and beyond, with all the stupid that naturally follows those takeovers. Right now, Arkansas is ready to let a horrid, stupid bill become law, SB 202, wherein towns and hamlets and cozy, scenic criks will be banned from passing ordinances protecting LGBT citizens from discrimination. Why this big government intrusion from Little Rock? Because, of course, gays are gross, and we have to protect reg’lar Arkansans from the “chaos” that would ensue if LGBT people were treated equally: Read more on Arkansas Does Not Need Your Gay Business, Gays!…

Saks Fifth Avenue Pretty Sure It’s Still OK To Discriminate Against Trans People

One of the interesting things about the fight for LGBT acceptance and equality over the years is that corporations — even some of the evil, obnoxious ones — were way ahead of the gummint when it came to getting their little heads around the idea that, you know, hey, maybe the gays and the trans people and all the various other whatnots might ACTUALLY be great employees. They might even be humans, and you know, it’s probably a good idea to treat them equally, give them spousal benefits, not call them fags at the water cooler, et cetera.

Laura Bush, Profile In Courage

Former First Lady Laura Bush, do you love gheyz and homosex and done wrote a book where you talked about loving gheyz and homosex and went on Larry King and talked about loving gheyz and homosex? That is very nice of you! You and Dick Cheney, Undead Prince, have that one nice thing in common! And since we are liberalz, we will credit you where due! But did some dirty queers than take your public position and add your face and mouth talking about those things to a commercial about that public position, and did you then insist that they remove your face and mouth from this disgusting list of people (Colin Powell, Dick Cheney, Barack HUSSEIN Nobumer) with this same very common public opinion? Oh, you did that too. Well, we guess you are still an asshole then, surprise. Read more on Laura Bush, Profile In Courage…

Gay Outrage Over ‘Pansy’ Remarks!

Many, many gay homosexuals are angry about North Carolina Governor Mike Easley saying Hillary Clinton made Rocky Balboa look like a pansy. How dare this historic friend of the gays sit idly by while her surrogate throws around these hateful smear words? And how many agujeros de la gloria will Chelsea have to service at The Endup to win back the affections of her mother’s old pals? Read more on Gay Outrage Over ‘Pansy’ Remarks!…
 

Hillary Disses Hubby’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Crapromise

All 14th anniversaries deserve extra special festivities, and the Human Rights Campaign is celebrating the big 1-4 of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for gay soldiers by… asking if candidates will get rid of it! All this week, the organization has been queerying each Democratic candidate, “If you are elected President, what concrete steps would you take to overturn ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?'” Hillary Rodham Clinton, perhaps swayed by her platonic lover Keith Kerr, responded that she will bring her “strength and experience to bear to end this outdated and outmoded policy.” But your husband the President Bill made that policy! Clinton must obey Clinton or all Clintons fail! Read more on Hillary Disses Hubby’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Crapromise…

Senator Brownback Engages in Fruit-ful Dialogue

Last week, controversy erupted after Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), in an interview with Jeff Sharlet of Rolling Stone, made the following remarks: “You look at the social impact of the countries that have engaged in homosexual marriage.” He shakes his head in sorrow, thinking of Sweden, which Christian conservatives believe has been made by “social engineering” into an outer ring of hell. “You’ll know ‘em by their fruits,” Brownback says. He pauses, and an awkward silence fills the room. He was citing scripture — Matthew 7:16 — but he just called gay Swedes “fruits.” Read more on Senator Brownback Engages in Fruit-ful Dialogue…

Roberts Faces Nelly Opposition

Last week, four gay rights groups came out against John Roberts’ nomination to the Supreme Court. Our first thought: Aunt Toms. Our second thought? Hey, look, they have a point, and they’re not even being all gay about it. Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese told the WP: “Judge Roberts has such a narrow view of what the courts can and should do, it’s a wonder he wants the job at all.” Snap! Such criticism is probably the most substantative reason a liberal group has given for opposing Roberts. Certainly it’s better than “He drives anti-abortion bombers to the clinics” or whatever it was that NARAL said. Read more on Roberts Faces Nelly Opposition…
