I stopped reading Andy Borowitz many months ago. He’s not funny at all.

No mention of Dick Cheney? As a gay Republican I am frankly worn out.

Did anyone read the about the mental breakdown of the singer Michelle Shocked? And, her antigay rant in her concert in San Francisco. It appears she has been become a member of the Westboro Baptist Church.

In a way, considering what Tony P and other anti gay org. reps have said about Portman, they ARE essentially saying that Portman is wrong for accepting his son, over the doctrine of anti gay sentiment. They ARE saying that his son’s behavior might as well be like accepting bank robbery and spreading AIDS.
And even though his son was raised in a home with a mom and dad, in a longtime marriage with hetero siblings and the boy himself is an accomplished law abiding young person, he’s STILL supposed to be unacceptable to his own father for this ONE singular differing feature.
When it doesn’t matter if you’re a good parent, or your gay child is a really good kid, there are factions that think you’re both worse than criminals and terrorists, it’s time to just look at those dissenters for what they are.
And insane, paranoid bunch of hysterics and accept your son over doctrine and use the power of your office to assure your son’s equal responsibility,accomplishments and contributions as a citizen will be assured equal rights and protections under the law.

Personally, regan, I think if they keep this up, they’re gonig to find out how a very angry and powerful father who loves his son and family very much reacts to attacks on his family.

I’ll get a bowl of popcorn.
