Michael Savage Can't Stop Thinking, Talking About Gay Sex Acts

(Via Towleroad.)

I really wish I could leave my sex life where it belongs: in the bedroom. But Michael Savage simply won't let me. He really just can't stop thinking all day and all night about the sex acts I engage in behind closed doors. If this lunatic could place a camera in my room and record every intimate detail, I have no doubt that he would. And then he'd go on the radio and describe it all to his listeners.

There's really no question that Savage spends far more time thinking about the various ways in which mouths, penises, and anuses can fit together than I do. But he tries to cover up his obsessive voyeurism by loudly proclaiming how gross it all is--even though he can't bring himself to look away. What a pervert.

Bill O'Reilly Is Obsessed With Hot Young Men Kissing Each Other

"On the Internet, there are embarrassing pictures of Mr. Lambert. These pictures, that hint that he is gay, will they have an effect on this program which is a cultural phenomenon in America?" - Bill O'Reilly

(Via Towleroad.)

Embarrassing pictures? Really? They're only embarrassing if one has a problem with men kissing each other.

But, if this really is such repellent behavior, then why is O'Reilly showing the pictures on his TV program? Perhaps he's just a ratings whore like most television personalities. But maybe he secretly gets off on such "naughty" pictures. Just listen to the excitement in his voice as he discusses this issue. It's hard not to think that he's getting "all hot and bothered," as Andy Towle put it on his blog. And from what I can tell he was getting a lot more hot than bothered.

By no means do I begrudge O'Reilly his apparent enjoyment in watching hot young gay men make out. I'm happy to admit that I have plenty of videos of exactly that on the computer I'm using to write this blog entry. But what I don't do is go on national television and drool over such images while decrying them as embarrassing. Because he can't admit that he gets off on such things, O'Reilly is left to pant excitedly under his breath as he wonders aloud whether those naughty, naughty pictures will harm Adam Lambert's career. And that's what makes him a pervert.

Marriage Equality Defended In The Daily Iowan

Here's the editorial board's resounding statement in favor of the Iowa Supreme Court's recent ruling:
As the argument over gay marriage will no doubt continue in other parts of our nation, Iowa has taken a triumphant step away from most other states, a step away from the inequality of the past and toward a slowly evolving America focused on “with liberty and justice for all.”

This is not to say that the April 3 decision allowing gay marriage in the state of Iowa won’t be debated or questioned or that those who oppose the court’s ruling won’t redouble their efforts to impose their beliefs and overturn the latest precedent. However, the monumental finding that greeted news readers across the nation on websites April 3 and in newspapers over the weekend has set a defining tone that — hopefully — will ring throughout the rest of the nation in the months and years to come.

And here's Dean Treftz's brilliantly sarcastic column on the horrors that ruling will soon bring down upon the state:
It started quietly enough.

Instead of the usual cummerbund-cufflink-bowtie man and dress-veil-girdle woman, state parks and Unitarian churches started also wedding pairs of two men — both in tuxedos — and two women — both in tuxedos.

They had love, rice, flowers (and for all I know girdles) — the works — and people forgot the danger. The newspapers, of course, loved it, and while they were snapping front-page tear-jerkers and slowly substituting “controversial decision” with “civil-rights progress,” the lawyers that had descended like so many queer locusts moved on to the next states.
