“I get sick of listening to straight people complain about, “Well, hey, we don’t have a heterosexual-pride day, why do you need a gay-pride day?” I remember when I was a kid I’d always ask my mom: “Why don’t we have a Kid’s Day? We have a Mother’s Day and a Father’s Day, but why don’t we have a Kid’s Day?” My mom would always say, “Every day is Kid’s Day.” To all those heterosexuals that bitch about gay pride, I say the same thing: Every day is heterosexual-pride day! Can’t you people enjoy your banquet and not piss on those of us enjoying our crumbs over here in the corner?” – Rob Nash

James Carville on Barack Obama: "If Hillary gave up one of her balls and gave it to Obama, he’d have two."- VIDEO
In what had to be one the most truthful comments ever James Carville, prominent liberal pundit and political stratagist said what most of us have been thinking for almost the past two years.
Carville who was discussing Obama’s stances on taxes and the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy is sticking by the harsh assessment. “If I offended anybody, I am not sorry and I do not apologize,” Carville told CNN’s John King on Thursday, although he said the comment was meant as a joke.
I TOTALLY AGREE with you James/ But I’m NOT joking.
Journailst Sean Bugg Hits The Ken Mehlman Nail Right On The Head
“We all bear responsibility for the choices we make, especially when one chooses to improve one’s own life at the expense of others. Mehlman’s plea for understanding that it was ‘very hard, personally,’ rings hollow when compared to the lives of those who chose to live their lives honestly, even when that choice ended careers or divided families.
“Choices have consequences. The consequences of Mehlman’s choices are enshrined in the constitutions of multiple states — including my own home state of Kentucky — a web of treachery that will take decades to undo (absent a Supreme Court decision for marriage equality, which no one should hold their breath for).
“Where some may see in Mehlman a pragmatic tool for the hardball political arena, I see a political blood diamond, a commodity so tainted by its past that it’s odious to employ in the present. The fight for LGBT equality has to be about more than political warfare, more than collecting checks from rich benefactors. Pragmatism has its place, yet so does principle. Mehlman may someday find redemption enough to cleanse the taint of his past, but that redemption should be earned, not bought.”
