Demolishing the arguments against marriage equality in down home gospel style

From the video:

With marriage equality on the move, right-wing bigots disapprove, defending homophobia with religion-based myopia

"Don't rail against same sex at us till you observe each word of Exodus."

Only Pat Robertson -- and his Flock -- Would Denigrate Robin Williams

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

This is so far past Ick that new adjectives need forming and disseminating.

But then again, Pat Robertson's middle name is Ick.

Robertson brings it back to liberal sin and excess every time, but targeting the revered and only recently passed Robin Williams was a Christian Slime move of the first water.

Don't you just want to move next-door to that?

Here are a couple of Robertson doozies:

'There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. It is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore.'

'The flooding of New Orleans is a sign that God is tired of seeing his creation mocked by the Mardi Gras and its perverted display of debauchery and exposed breasts.'

Robertson has a catalogue of incidents (or perhaps a roomful of binders) that should have had him certified years and years and years and years and years ago. He's stuck somewhere between 1776 and 1945.

Sad, really … until you think about how many millions (perhaps billions) Robertson and his ilk of Ick have put the tithing squeeze on their subscribers/bank-roll/churchgoers to attain.

She Doubled Dowd

dowd
Maureen Dowd's poison pen is firmly fixated on President Obama again as she adds another coat of resentment onto her 'great disappointment' … she expected what, JFK and Nelson Mandela combined to sit in the Oval Office with nary a visibly difficult domestic or global challenge ahead of them?

The Dowd must have given cannabis gummy bears a whirl. Excerpts below and find the entire column here at The NY Times.

WASHINGTON — As he has grown weary of Washington, Barack Obama has shed parts of his presidency, like drying petals falling off a rose.

He left the explaining and selling of his signature health care legislation to Bill Clinton. He outsourced Congress to Rahm Emanuel in the first term, and now doesn’t bother to source it at all. He left schmoozing, as well as a spiraling Iraq, to Joe Biden. Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, comes across as more than a messagemeister. As the president floats in the empyrean, Rhodes seems to make foreign policy even as he’s spinning it.

Now why Dowd eviscerated the Dowd's bitterness toward Rev. Al Sharpton takes a bit more probing. Apart from Maureen's MO is frequently being petty, condescending, dismissive and almost personally insulting. Still from the Times.

Once civil rights leaders drew their power from their unimpeachable moral authority. Now, being a civil rights leader can be just another career move, a good brand … the one thing it was impossible to imagine, back in the giddy days of the 2009 inauguration, as Americans basked in their open-mindedness and pluralism, was that the first African-American president would outsource race.

When The Dowd is openly hating on the Democrat sitting president … buckle up, it's going to be a wild ride.

Eric Cantor Pulls Off a semi-Palin, K Street Needs Him STAT

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Cantor

Cantor, I hope there's a spot open at Liberty College … those who turn out not to be the RWNJ's cup o'tea tend to zoom right down there, and it IS in Virginia … but the lobbyist alternative is WAY more income friendly - and K Street loves 'em some ex-Congressionals. And they pay accordingly.

Cantor has also had the extremist balls to demand  a costly special election from Virginia Governor Terry McCauliffe, the unexpected new Governor of olde Virginia.

Something tells me that Guv'nah McAuliffe isn't heartbroken to wave him off to the private sector.

I quit

From MSNBC's Ed Shultz:

Ralph Nader and Doug Heye,former spokesperson for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), a Cantor ex-staffer now, was the non-wonky but deeply funny GOP guest on Bill Maher Friday night. Great material! From Realtime HBO/Raw Story/Mediate.

And some Overtime with Ralph Nader and Doug Heye, former spokesperson for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA).

Cantor coverage at The Carnival's archives, here at this link.

One of the best articles about Quitter Cantor (did he conference call La Palin for quitter tutoring?) came from The Federalist, of all places:

Eric Cantor just announced that he is quitting his House seat on August 18. Why did Cantor quit? There are three reasons.

1) He’s given up on the lame duck session. The last week of this legislative session has been no fun whatsoever for House Republicans, and there’s no sign the lame duck session is going to be any better.

2) Cantor has checked out. For at least the past ten years.

3) To start the lobbying ban clock five months early. The House bars former members from lobbying for one whole year. So by quitting early, Cantor can move into his new K Street digs in August of 2015 instead of January 2016. So on behalf of the 7th District, let me bid Eric Cantor goodbye—and good riddance.

Smells-Like-Bullshit_o_99704

Eric Cantor needs a whopper of a Farewell Party from Fvx Nation … at least he was an Idjit of long standing, a couple Congressional decades (from hell) will scamper off and merrily retire with him.

When The Federalist turned on Cantor, they went for the jugular. Like a True Blood maneuver.

Couldn't happen to a better man.
