Obama does HMS Pinafore!

Fucking hilarious!

Rangers Head to World Series!

OK, my inner jock just came out.  I am not much of a sports enthusiast, but I do enjoy watching baseball, especially live at the ballpark.  If you have only seen it on TV you are not seeing baseball!  Anyway, our local team, the long suffering Rangers has finally made it to the series.

After beating the New York Yankees 6-1 in game 6 last night they won the AL pennant.  Now hey will go up against either San Francisco or Philadelphia.  I am rooting for SF since I would love to see the Rangers play in San Francisco.  That dream will have to wait, since tickets are sure to be impossible to get. 

Go Rangers!

Christine O'Donnell Claims To Be Constitutional Scholar - Has No Idea What's In The 1st Amendment

In an amazing show of ignorance and complete air-headedness Christine O'Donnell can't recall the First frigging Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America?  In this segment by Anderson Cooper she gets an education.

"Hoot Man" - Scots Support Gay Marriage!

An article in the Harborough Mail shows results of a recent poll in Scotland.  Scots support the rights of same-sex couple to marry.  A majority, 58%, support the idea while only 19% are against.  Read more here.

Gay Bashing Increasing in NYC, too!

I am not sure if the statistics bear this out, but anecdotal it seems that the number of gay bashing s has been on the increase in Dallas.  Now after three separate cases in NYC, one at Stonewall Inn and two more at other local gay bars,  it looks like it might be a nationwide trend.  I have to believe this is due to the increased rhetoric from politicians and talk shows who during an election cycle use LGBT rights as a punching bag. Again, the level of crazt talk has gotten out of hand and I suspect it is having real-world effects.

More reason than ever for the Rally to Restore Sanity.

Carly Fiorina - Can't Name One Spending Cut to Pay For Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich

On FOX News, no less, Carly Fiorina babbled and babbled but refused to give Chris Wallace a single idea for cutting spending that would reduce the $4 trillion deficit and continued to defend the Bush era tax cuts for the rich.

Like most Republicans they can spout rhetoric, but don't really have any ideas.

Watch and be as confused as I am. She was asked 7 times and never answered.

Yankees Fans Sing Hate Lyrics to YMCA - Classy!

At a 2007 Yankees game fans in the stands sing to a Mets fan.  They do a version of YMCA with their own "charming" words.  And we wonder why our kids get bullied at school?  Would these same people sing a song with the "n" word in the lyrics as a joke?  Yea, I guess they probably would.

The point is until we make it unacceptable to use the word "gay" as a put down and synonym for "lame" or "bad" we will have an uphill fight. I hope these bigots see themselves on YouTube and someday realize how ignorant and crass this makes them look.

Then again they are Yankees fans, so I kind of doubt that. How does that joke feel?
