Iowa was almost overcome by a wave of frothy, racist, homophobic, womb-controlling Santorum last night, but in the end (which came finally around 2:30 AM ET) 8 votes materialized for Mittens to claim he held back the surge. After a long night, Romney won the caucuses — by eight votes. But Santorum was hardly a [...]

Rick Perry’s ad and campaign are oh-so-gay: music by gay Jewish composer

By: Sunday December 11, 2011 10:08 am

The homophobic governor of Texas, Rick Perry, who is one of the more colorful clowns in the GOP Clown Car, is getting unexpected mileage out of his “Strong” [on Bigotry] ad, which attacks gays.

Rick Perry’s Pilitory Playfulness

By: Thursday December 8, 2011 10:17 pm

Something besides raw anti-gay animus, disdain for American soldiers and religious chauvinism became apparent to me in Rick Perry’s “Strong on Bigotry” t.v. ad: Rick Perry’s hair is his palette. Here’s Mr. Perry sporting the granitic Brokeback gray he modeled in the “Strong on Bigotry” ad on Wednesday. But in his Thursday interview with Wolf [...]

I wonder who wasn’t welcome at Rick Perry’s ‘N*ggerhead’ family hunting camp?

By: Monday October 3, 2011 9:03 am

In the early years of his political career, Rick Perry began hosting fellow lawmakers, friends and supporters at his family’s secluded West Texas hunting camp, a place known by the name painted in block letters across a large, flat rock standing upright at its gated entrance. “Niggerhead,” it read.

Fundie anti-gay womb-controller Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas endorses Rick Perry

By: Friday September 23, 2011 8:08 pm

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback made national news a few years ago, mostly for his heavy-handed, pious, bizarre womb-controlling. I guess it’s no surprise he’d support Texas Governor Rick Perry for President. As far as his anti-gay, fringe cred, it’s hard to top Brownback. Zack Ford at Think Progress LGBT has a rundown of his batsh*ttery. [...]
