Gay Dads Get Hateful Birthday RSVP For Their Daughter

Gay Birthday Invitation w398h263

Laffy Note: This turned out to be a hoax by some DJs. Here's the scoop via Joe My God.

So you're two proud gay dads and can't wait to throw your daughter the best birthday party imaginable. You send out invitations and you expect, out of respect for your daughter, you'll get mostly positive responses. That's not really too much to expect.
Let me repeat, two GAY dads.

So above is the RSVP response they got from the mother of an invitee via HuffPo:

Tommy will NOT attend. I do not believe in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your "lifestyle." I'm sorry Sophia has to grow up this way. If you have an issue or need to speak to me: [number erased]

Ignorance does really start at home, but it's not started by the young. It's started by the old. It's the parents, not the innocent kids. Now there's so much wrong with that short response, but really, is this 2014 or the dark ages? What does Tommy's mother think is going to happen to her son if he attends? Is he going to be molested? Is he going to be sold into slavery? Is he going to be "indoctrinated?"

Obviously this mom thinks any or all of those will happen. What's her giveaway -- She highlights "lifestyle" as if it's a choice for these two men. They evidently missed out on getting into Marcus Bachmann's (Rep. Michele's husband) program of conversion therapy.

How awful to be brought up in a heterosexual household by ignorant adults rather than being the child of two same-sex, loving people who want to teach their child that there's more to life than news, weather, sports -- oh, and bigotry.

I wonder if the rack where they hang their house and car keys has the reminder, "Hate, don't leave home without it."

A Birthday Gift For Our Late Best Friend, Paddy

Today would have been our beloved Paddy's birthday. Since her untimely passing about two weeks ago, life has changed for all of us over here at The Political Carnival.

One thing I believe is that Paddy would have loved to celebrate this occasion. She loved life and birthdays are supposed to be fun. So in my personal way, and in honor of this being her day, I found a video that I think she'd have loved and demanded we share with all of our readers. It skewers so much of what's going on with politics today. And I KNOW that anything that shows up bully Bill O'Reilly for what he really is, would be something Paddy would be jumping up and down saying we had to put up there.

So here it is. A birthday present for Paddy from all of us here at TPC. She'd consider it a pleasure to give all of you an entertaining gift to help her celebrate. So, as you watch this, please remember the spirit of the woman who gave her all for this site.

Thanks to the Gregory Brothers, we have another installment of Songify -- the musical fantasm of song, news and snark.

From YouTube:

Congresswoman Jackie Speier debates diplomatic spending with Nice Peter & Kassem G while a variety of pundits & politicians bemoan the biggest dangers of 2014 - zoo closures, marijuana legalization, and texting.

Happy Birthday sweet Angel.

Laffy Note: Thank you David, this was perfect. Just perfect. Paddy would have loved it, and there is nothing left to add except for my deepest wishes that she could have been here to share her birthday with us. I-- we-- miss her beyond words, we ache inside, we will always love and remember her, and we will always celebrate her life and legacy on this day and every day.

i love you so much

Too sweet. Via Gawker.

We're long overdue for our quarterly fundraiser, mainly because we are so reluctant to have our hands out, but, as Nickelodeon used to say, "A kid's gotta do what a kid's gotta do."

So if you are able, if you are so inclined, please donate. I'm currently using a just barely hanging on 10 y/o CRT monitor that is about to keel over. Gotta have the monitor to get the posts up! Site maintenance, and every day expenses add up and we can't do this without your help.

Thank you ahead of time for your consistent kindness and generosity. Without you, there would be no us.
