!! OMG, one or two Republicans don’t completely hate gays !!

A few Republicans support gay marriage! No really! What does this mean? Well who the f*ck knows, really, because what the Republican party is so fractured and weird that who even knows what it means to be a conservative anymore? Does it mean you’re a greedy pig who doesn’t want to pay taxes or does it mean you’re a lunatic who spends all day hoping for a firebreathing Jesus Christ to descend from the heavens and kill everyone? I mean, both, kind of! But it appears that a few Republicans are starting to understand that classic conservative principles of small government don’t really square with the current Republican policy of being the party of judgey theocratic bitchery.
And these few people are coming out in support of gay marriage! Herbert Hoover’s granddaughter Margaret just wrote an op-ed for the Fox News website (!!!) floating the crazy notion that everyone should be kind of equal. I know, right!?
Margaret Hoover writes:

Gays and lesbians are our friends, neighbors, doctors, colleagues, sisters and brothers. Does it sit well with you that because of their sexual orientation, a factor outside one’s control, that they should have less rights and protections in the eyes of the law? While increasing acceptance of gays marks my generational experience–Ellen DeGeneres is welcomed into the living rooms of millions of Americans daily, an impossibility in even my childhood– many who are older than me fear that if gays and lesbians can marry, what’s next? They worry that homosexual marriage degrades the integrity of heterosexual marriage. They fear that their children might be exposed to alternative lifestyles that will impact them negatively, or argue that the purpose of marriage is procreation. If you are uncomfortable with gay marriage, I encourage you to pay attention to this trial, the plaintiffs, the defense and the spectrum of experts, historians, psychologists, economists, political scientists, who will testify as to the effects and detriment of Proposition 8. In the words of NAACP chairman Julian Bond, “The humanity of all Americans is diminished when any group is denied rights granted to others.”

It’s almost enough to make me change my voter registration. Oh, except for the fact that conservative Dick Cheney also (sort of) supports gay marriage and is nonetheless one of the biggest villains of all time. Never mind!

!! OMG, Mo’Nique for the win !!


Did you watch the Golden Globes AKA the Retarded Oscars? I did! And guess what!? I haven’t been so bored since high school when they decided to institute two-hour calculus. Why is this televised, and more importantly, why do people insist on watching it? Why did I watch it? Who knows!
The one and only good part (besides Chloe Sevigny’s Big Love win, which was much-deserved and a bit unexpected but still not actually interesting) was Mo’Nique’s acceptance speech, which was graceful, funny and kinda moving without making you totally want to puke.
Unfortunately I still puked an hour later when Precious herself got shafted in favor of Sandra Bullock for her role of Precious’s boyfriend’s mom. Chalk up another one for beautiful white lady saviors! Oh well.

In the market for fine art featuring cartoon characters of your youth? Hey, here’s a whole page devoted to He-Man art, including a giant gallery installation of Castle Grayskull. If anyone wants to buy me a print of the Sorceress, I do have a birthday coming up!
