I love Dan Savage. I knew I was not the only one outraged at the stink bomb Francis threw back at us.


Dan Savage Was on MSNBC Last Night Talking About Kim Davis

If you haven't yet read Dan's takedown of Kim Davis—the Rowan County clerk who's refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples "under God's authority"—stop everything you're doing right now and read it.
Dan was on MSNBC last night, elaborating on Davis and her desire to be a martyr, and what would happen if we allowed people to violate the rights of their fellow citizens based on religious beliefs: "It would be utter chaos if everyone was empowered to cite God's authority to violate the law or break the law."


And Dan hit something I have been saying: Kim is in this for the money, and she will soon be a millionairess on the basis of her bigotry. The American Way!

I still hope this is another hoax by Kim Davis



Mat Staver, Davis’s attorney and the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told the New York Times that photos of the meeting were expected soon from the Vatican. When asked why he delayed the announcement until now, Staver said: “We didn’t want the pope’s visit to be focused on Kim Davis.”

IF THIS IS TRUE, FRANCIS WAS INTERFERING WITH OUR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT AND I WILL NOT INVITE HIM BACK.

The Middle Kingdom Feeling More Like Itself





No, Gary Legum, the least dumb Bush brother is Neil, sad as that is.



Jeb Bush, as dumb as his idiot brother: His latest nonsense should have you running scared

This is the "smart" Bush? Please

Thanks for Interfering, Pope Francis--If only Pope Pius XII in 1940-45 Had Said This Over and Over

He just had to chime in about Kim Davis.

Francis: "Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right, a human right. Otherwise we would end up in a situation where we select what is a right, saying, 'this right that has merit, this one does not.'"
Asked if this principle applied to government officials carrying out their duties, he replied: "It is a human right and if a government official is a human person, he has that right. It is a human right."

DOES FRANCIS THINK THAT PIUS XII OUGHT TO HAVE ENCOURAGED ORDINARY GERMAN AND AUSTRIAN OFFICIALS TO REFUSE TO ROUND UP AND MURDER JEWS AND GYPSIES AND OTHERS? Now, resistors to Hitler would have been displaying their human rights, and might have suffered for it.

Kim Davis is denying other human beings their rights. She will end up a millionairess and a high-office politician, chances are.

My hackles rise at this interference with American politics and the American constitution. Don't hurry back, Francis.

Father Coughlin is too much on my mind as I brood back on the 1930s. I liked it better when Baptists believed in Original Sin and Separation of the Church and State, before the Bushes and Faith-Based Initiatives.

End of rant.

The Lengths One Will Go to Prepare to Stop Smoking: Boehner to Resign


What would be the point of a smoking-cessation class if you had to huddle with fellow Republicans every day? Good thing he has no plans to stop drinking.

Old Headline says: “Obama Taps Openly Gay Man to Lead Army”

Obama to nominate Centerville grad Eric Fanning to lead Army

Now, this is a great headline, stressing what's important!

Memories of the Checkers Speech, 63 Years Later



Thursday, September 20, 2012

I posted this three years ago:

Memories of the Checkers Speech, 60 Years Later


Early in 1952 I learned American Morse code and after I finished the 11th grade I signed on as a telegraph apprentice on the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad at Red Rock, up near Kansas.  I was sixteen.  After hours I helped put up television antennas.  60 feet high got you Oklahoma City, and, if you were lucky, Coffeeville, Kansas.  In late September we had a rush order for an antenna on an isolated farmhouse over in Kansas, a tall gaunt house occupied by darkly dressed people with tall gaunt dogs.  When we finished, the owners invited us to stay for something so important that they had bought a television set and hired us to install the antenna. There among snarling dogs and rabid Republicans I got to sit silent and watch the slimiest politician of that generation damn himself, I was confident, by his transparently manipulative Checkers speech.  Keeping silent was easier because I was sure the more or less straight-shooting Eisenhower would drop him from the slate.  
Today I learn that a politician who had previously trashed 47% of the country really loves 100% of the country. 
 
That was 2012. So now we have 12 or 14 candidates for the slimiest Republican man or woman of this generation and you have no more or less straight-shooting Eisenhower. And we have Huckabee embracing Kim Davis and a staffer blocking Cruz who desperately wanted to be out there on the stage hugging Kim Davis. And Cruz reminds me every day of Joe McCarthy. I am retreating, right now, to the American Revolution. 

What did I tell you? I just thought Kim was going to be in a porn movie with the Affleck nanny


There is now an erotic lesbian novel about Kim Davis, the anti-LGBT county clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky who’s been making national headlines for the past few weeks.
Written by Lilith St. Augustine, Kim Goes to Jail: An Erotic Story is available as a Kindle Edition ebook on Amazon for the fair price of $0.99. The official blurb describes the small novella as a 13,500-word “timely tale of faith, prejudice, incarceration, danger and sexual discovery.”

SOMETHING ABOUT KIM'S HAIRDO AND MAKEUP AND FOURTH KNOWN CHOICE OF MATE ALERTED ME TO UNDERLYING APOSTOLIC PORN. YOU DON'T OBSESS THIS MUCH ABOUT SAME-SEX SEX AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE UNLESS YOU ARE TRANSCENDING MULTIPLE SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT SEX MARRIAGES AND ADULTERY AND ILLEGITIMACY AND INCEST AND RELIGIOSE PSYCHOSIS AND HALITOSIS AND HUCKABEE AND MONEY CASH DOLLARS LOOT FAME.

And Linda Tripp's plastic surgeon. Lilith St. Augustine sees it all.
