SC: Governor Haley names anti-gay, gun-promoting teabagger black Republican to U.S. Senate seat

By: Tuesday December 18, 2012 7:00 am

RT @msignorile: Another “bachelor” antigay Senator from SC. What’s going on there? I have no idea what’s going on “there,” but any Republican wound this tight from the Palmetto State probably would cause folks to ask the question, given Lindsey Graham’s presence in D.C. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is making some history — sadly [...]

Chick-fil-A’s Cathy: “we support Biblical families”

By: Wednesday October 3, 2012 12:32 pm

ROTFLOL. The Chick-Fil-A COO just steps in it over and over. Dan Cathy spoke with 11Alive’s (WXIA-TV) Matt Pearl at the Cathy family’s ranch in Georgia. This past weekend, Cathy sidestepped questions about the controversy but did reiterate the company’s devotion to families. “Families are very important to our country,” Cathy said. “And they’re very important [...]

Deceptive Romney ad tanking badly on youtube

By: Tuesday July 24, 2012 8:32 pm

The Romney camp has been making a lot of noise about an Obama campaign speech in which the President pointed out that those who succeed in this country get help from different sources. Taking a deceptive view of the President’s speech (i.e. claiming that Obama said that business owners do not in fact create their [...]

For the homophobic win: same-sex scandal-ridden Florida Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll

By: Sunday July 15, 2012 6:36 pm

We’ve seen epic denials from pols that are hall-of-fame worthy when they are caught in a sex scandal with someone of the same sex — think Larry “ I never have been gay“ Craig , or Bob “black gay panic” Allen come to mind — but we’ve got a real winner today. Not only do we have a rare [...]

Pretend to be surprised: Charlie Crist reportedly paid men to hide gay affair

By: Friday June 8, 2012 9:08 pm

All I can muster is a healthy laugh out loud at this news. It was a poorly kept secret in Florida while Charlie Crist was governor, and when the documentary Outrage (featuring my friend Mike Rogers, and directed by Kirby Dick) came out in 2009, he was effectively outed. It included information about Crist that [...]

The hypocrisy of the Larry Craig-defending, closet-glorifying Andrew Breitbart

By: Wednesday February 15, 2012 7:03 am

I really cannot wrap my mind around the level of homophobia that Andrew Breitbart holds in his hypocritical heart. The right-wing activist recently left the board of the gay conservative group GOProud over the not-exactly-outing of a 2012 Clown Car consultant (see “Rick Perry strategist Tony Fabrizio – anti-gay for a payday“) in a Tweet. [...]

CPAC: hate on gays by day…cruising on Craigslist for homosex by night

By: Friday February 10, 2012 8:19 am

We all know it’s true – a gathering of homophobes at a political conference ensures 1) a spike in hotel in-room porn purchases and 2) a lot of homosex. Witness what is going on at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), covered over at This is just one of 10 ads it has collected in [...]

Newt wife #2: he asked me for an open marriage so he could continue boinking Callista

By: Thursday January 19, 2012 10:27 am

Whoa ho-holy sh*t: how’s this for “family values”? Please let me hear Tony Perkins and the rest of the moralists clean up behind this: ABC Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross told WMAL’s Morning Majority program that Marianne Gingrich claims her ex-husband wanted an ‘open marriage.’ “He came to her and said, ‘I want to stay [...]

Tennis legend and ace bigot Margaret Court wants a pass for her homophobia

By: Thursday January 5, 2012 8:33 am

The problem bigots have in 2012 is that they don’t like being labeled bigots, so they engage in public contortions to make it look like they are being victimized for opening their pieholes and saying racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic garbage that is ludicrous. Tennis legend (and now televangelist/pastor of Victory Life Centre) Margaret Court can join the list [...]

American Family Association endorsements soaked in hypocrisy

By: Wednesday December 28, 2011 10:26 am

Friend of the Blend, Joe Murray, a former staff attorney for the American Family Association, has written a sizzling op-ed in the Des Moines Register addressing the Wildmon family hate machine’s participation in the 2012 GOP Clown Car endorsement game. The fundie organization, which focuses “protecting marriage,” has endorsed serial adulterer Newt Gingrich, and as [...]
