"I’m very, very disappointed. I am disappointed that my campaign manager forwarded an e-mail that would include any member of my family in policy discussions."
Representative Marsha Looper • Commenting on campaign manager Lana Fore-Warkocz’s decision to include her son in a recent email praising Looper for voting against a civil unions bill in Colorado. The message pointed to Looper’s decision to vote against the bill, even though her son was homosexual, as proof of her commitment to her ideals. Unfortunately, the email also outed Looper’s son, who had not previously discussed his sexuality publicly. Yikes. source(via • follow)
Family Values: You’re doing it wrong.
Sometimes I’m reminded that Texas does have redeeming qualities, even if few and far between.
"It was almost as if he drew a line in the sand saying, you know, I don’t want your support. Go vote for this other guy because there’s no place for you in my, you know, in my presidency, there’s no place for you almost in a sense, you know, as an American. What do gay Americans do if Newt Gingrich was president?"

What a jackal. He is beneath.
Make that two members of the GOP who have not responded to this issue in a manner befitting a decent human being. At least Herman Cain pretended, in my opinion, that he was sorry for not sticking up for the soldier. So Romney’s defense is he shouldn’t condemn them their actions because they were expressing their views?
Well how about you condemn their fucking bigoted views then.
"These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.
They go on and on with all this bullshit about ‘sanctity’ — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want."
Clint Eastwood being a BAMF while discussing same-sex marriage in GQ’s October edition. He boils down the arguments for marriage equality to a beautiful simplicity - Why not?
He really means this:
I dare anyone to disagree with Clint Eastwood. For fuck’s sake, he was Dirty Harry! He makes Chuck Norris look like Justin Bieber. I don’t know about you all, but his quote literally made my day better.
