!! OMG, Busted: Saxby Chambliss staffer is homophobic internet crank !!

Newsflash to readers and commenters: you have an IP address! I know it’s hard to wrap your head around, but it’s a special little number that sort of vaguely identifies your point of origin when you visit a website. When you comment, your IP address is saved with the comment, and the website’s administrator (hey, that’s me!) can get a general idea of where the comment came from. If you happen to be writing from the office of a US Senator, it might say something like: “ISP: US Senate.” Uh-oh, Senate staffers… that means you!
Here’s the exchange that happened yesterday on gay blog Joe.My.God., in the comments of a post about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. :

Well, well, well– it seems that a Saxby Chambliss (R – GA, shocker!) staffer is not only an evil homophobe but a stupid idiot who doesn’t know how the internet works. And it’s your beautiful tax dollars who pay his(?) salary, (American) readers!

!! OMG, She Tells It: Lady Gaga !!


Hey, you can feel free to either love or hate Lady Gaga. It’s your opinion. A quick perusal through the comments here at OMG Blog highlights the usual complaints against her: her music suxxx, her costumes are dumb, she just steals everything from Madonna, she just steals everything from everyone. My personal opinion is as follows: I think her music is okay, her costumes are great, and who cares if she’s stealing everything? Finally, you have to admit that when it comes to gay stuff, particularly Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, her aggressive and outspoken activism is kind of amazing.
She’s been accused of pandering to her gay fans, but how many other celebrities of Gaga’s stature have gone so out of her way to support the gay cause? Most celebrities who want to pander to their gay fans just appear on the cover of out magazine, give a couple of platitudinous quotes and call it a day. And seriously, what has Madonna done for us lately?

!! OMG, It’s German: Obama, the Musical !!


Unglaublich! Hope! – Das Obama Musical looks to be the most exciting theatrical event since Starlight Express answered yes to rollerskates on stage! The German musical extravaganza about the 2008 US presidential campaign features a gospel singing Barack and Michelle Obama, a pantsuited and belting Hillary, and a bunch of pimps and ho’s for no explicable reason! I guess you have to be German to get it– though it’s in English and will be touring the US before you can say terrorist fist-bump! I can’t wait!

!! OMG, How Extravagant: Edwina Rogers’s giftwrapping secret !!


Being a greedy, rich Republican pig sure must be fun! Example: DC super-lobbyist Edwina Rogers has so much money that she likes to cut up real bills and use them wrap gifts and other bribes for public officials!
The sometimes-friend of the despicable Real Housewives of DC lives in an 18,000 square foot temple to ostentation that she refers to as Republican Shangri-la, and although it doesn’t say whether she has a swimming pool full of gold coins anywhere on the grounds, I think it’s safe to say that no Republican Shangri-la would be complete without one!

!! OMG, She’s Mad: Shirley Phelps-Roper pouts about publicity woes !!

roper.jpg
Poor Shirley Phelps-Roper! The Liza Minelli of homophobes is mad that her own God Hates Fags Baptist Church’s endless and shameless string of publicity grabs isn’t getting, well, the publicity it used to. In fact, you may have read lately about the Florida preacher who wants to burn a bunch of Korans at Ground Zero? Well that has absolutely nothing to do with Miss Shirley. But she would like you to know that her church has been burning Korans for years. And no one cared at all!

Her irritation Wednesday was not that the Rev. Terry Jones and his Dove World Outreach Center’s planned bonfire would offend Muslims worldwide and probably increase the danger to American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.
It’s that in 2008 she and her father’s Topeka flock set fire to a Quran in plain view on a Washington, D.C., street and nobody seemed to care.
“We did it a long time before this guy,” Phelps-Roper said by telephone from a street corner in downtown Chicago, scene of the latest Westboro picket — against Jews this time, not gays.
The difference could be that in 2008 many news media outlets had decided to ignore the group’s routine of spewing hatred at funerals of fallen American soldiers.
So when Fred Phelps, calling Muhammad a “pedophilic gigolo,” went online and invited people to attend the burning, most stayed away.

You kind of have to take pity on Shirley. Without her clever signs and her famous church, she’s just another crazy old lady with a really long braid.
