FOX News has it’s panties all in a twist and is calling Broadway legend and diva Patti LuPone “homophobic” over a tweet she made against the self-proclaimed “straight” Senator and Donald Trump’s butt-boy Lindsey Graham.
Ms. Graham who has been defending Donald Trump in recent days amid the ongoing controversy over his racist comments, as well as the “Send her back” chants at one of his rallies on Wednesday night.
“Lindsey Graham you are a disgrace,” Ms. LuPone tweeted. “On a personal note, why don’t you just bite the bullet and come out. You might just come to your senses.”
Now we all know that Lindsey-belle is straight. After all he says so. But this tweet send the Republi-CONS and Fox News into a tailspin frenzy and stated the false accusations that the one and only Evita herself is “homophobic” .
Now remember everyone. Lindsey Graham is straight. (To the nearest dick that is.)
I guess like Patti I am a homophobe also. Who knew?
After Roseanne Barr tried to explain away her now infamous racist remarks on Twitter because of “Ambien tweeting”
The makers of the sleep aid Ambien, responded to her blaming of the drug as follows.
“People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world,” the company, Sanofi U.S., said on Twitter. “While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.”
A tweet made by the patron saint of gay men, The Divine Miss M. herself about Rand Paul and his arduous 7 hour delay of the U.S. Senate voting on a two-year budget deal meant to avert a government shutdown has Fox News and some very overly sensitive CON-servatives in a tizzy.
Via FAUX News:
Bette Midler shocked the Twitterverse on Thursday with a post suggesting Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., should be physically attacked for his stance on the spending budget in the Senate.
Midler tweeted Thursday evening, “Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?”
Midler’s tweet was referencing a violent November incident during which Paul was assaulted by his neighbor and suffered several injuries.
Rene A. Boucher, 58, admitted to attacking an unsuspecting Paul in his yard and is facing 21 months in prison. Paul suffered bruises to his lungs and broken ribs, and contracted pneumonia following the attack.
One of Paul’s aides, Sergio Gor, called out Midler for a tweet that crossed the line.
“This is disgusting @BetteMidler calling for violence. She should be ashamed,” Gor tweeted.
Shocking and disgusting? They obviously don’t know Better Midler at all.
(Bette Midler imitation) Those dirty motherfuckers.
You go guuuuuurl!
Needless to say that Brietbart.com and Michelle Malkins Twitchy is none too pleased.
But as the Divine Miss M has said in the past. “Fuck em if they can’t take a joke and joke em if they can’t take a FUCK!”
Last night during the Obama v. Romney Presidential debates. KitchenAid posted a nasty and poorly spelled comment on its Twitter feed about President Obama’s grandmother, who died shortly before he took office.
It read: “Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! ‘She died 3 days b4 he became president,’ “ along with the #nbcpolitics hashtag.
The post which was quickly deleted did not go undetected and has created a firestorm of critisim against the giant appliance brand.
Cynthia Soledad, senior director at KitchenAid, told AdFreak.com in a statement:
“During the debate last night, a member of our Twitter team mistakenly posted an offensive tweet from the KitchenAid handle instead of a personal handle. This tasteless joke in no way represents our values at KitchenAid. This person will no longer be tweeting for us and appropriate actions are being taken. That said, I lead the KitchenAid brand, and I take responsibility for the whole team. I am deeply sorry to President Obama, his family, and our consumers for this careless error.”
Kitchen Aid has not released the name of the person responible or eleaborated extactly what “the appropriate actions” are.
Of course NBC will cut to commercial or run a human interest history story instead.

Right on Dan!
Interestingly I have read on may people saying that there is a “split witin the gay community” over the “compromise” . But EVERY blog and comment board I’ve read is overwhelmingly of the belief that this compromise is not a full repeal and that it does nothing to end the discriminatory policy. The split is between the LGBT community, and those organizations within the beltway that have completely lost touch with their constituencies.
Dan Choi will be on the Joy Behar Show tonight to discuss the DADT “compromise”.
