Palm Springs No on Prop 8 Protest turns UGLY

Ok, for everyone that is going to go out and protest tomorrow, lets not fight hate with hate. Below is a video of the protest in Palm Springs earlier this week where things got a bit ugly.  I can’t stand that Proposition 8 passes, but I’m sorry, these guys need to hold back a little.  The footage in this newscast  doesn’t make us look too good an will probably give the opposition some ammunition to use against us.

Dan Savage vs. Tony Perkins

One of my modern heroes, Dan Savage, writer of Savage Love and the book, the Commitment, appeared  on 360 with Anderson Cooper to debate with Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, about the influence of the Mormon Church to pass Prop 8 here in California.   

This is a great discussion.

Don’t forget to protest Prop 8 this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in San Francisco!

Awkward McCain moment and a pathetic McCain aide moment

Its one thing that Joe the Plumber wasn’t where he was supposed to be at a McCain rally, as in the first video.  Awkward, but not horrible.

 

But in this second clip, a McCain aide is being interviewed on CNN, makes harsh comments and accusations about Barack Obama and then has absolutely nothing to back it up.  ITs hard to watch.

McCain’s Brother Calls 911 to Complain About Traffic

From Towlerload

Anger management issues apparently run in the family. John McCain’s brother Joe placed a call to 911 earlier this week because he was stuck in traffic in Alexandria, Virginia:

Operator: 911 state your emergency

Caller: It’s not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way?

Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)

Caller: “Fuck you.” (caller hangs up)

The operator called back and received this message: “Hi this is Joe McCain I can’t take this message now because I’m involved in a very (inaudible) important political project… I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John.”

Tell McCain to End the Politics of Hate

Hey Sarah Palin!

Watch this. If only this girl could talk to Palin face to face, I wonder how the pit bull would talk her way out of this one.

And here is a video first posted on PerezHilton that needs to be seen by everyone. This is a video of McCain supporters at a Palin rally. Listening to these ignorant people its hard to believe this is not the 1950’s. One guys uses the “N-word” and the others are just stupid, calling Obama a terrorist and racist. These are the people McCain said he was very proud of last night at the debate. Enjoy.

MILK

Here is the long awaited trailer for the Gus Van Sant movie in which Sean Penn plays San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official in the US who was gunned down by fellow supervisor Dan White.

By the looks of this trailer, this film is going to be a amazing. I can’t wait to see it.

Sarah and Katie

This is Katie Couric interviewing Sarah Palin. Notice that she does not really answer any questions. She just has phrases that she repeats and she refers to what McCain says, but she has not opinion or stance on issues of her own. She’s just blowing hot air up McCain’s ass.

Palin’s Banned book list

I guess a lot happened while I as away meditating in the woods. Oh, how wonderful it was to be cut off from the world and from this sort of ridiculousness. I guess in 1996 tried to get a bunch of books banned from a public library and was even going to fire the librarian for not supporting her!

Here is the list. It is full classics! With her viewpoints I guess I could understand her reasonings behind some of the books, but why the hell would she want to ban The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn? Or any Judy Blume book?

And the tears keep rolling….

I am such a vagina.

I watch all of these speeches of change and opportunity and it makes me so happy to see so many people impassioned.

I get chill after chill.

So here are more inspiring speeches.

Barack’s acceptance speech, truly moving.

Joe Biden

Al Gore

Bill Clinton

Hillary Clinton…

….Fighting for an America that is defined by a deep and meaningful equality. From civil rights to labor rights, from women’s rights to gay rights.

Michelle Obama for President!

Barack Obama needs to be our next president if only because Michell Obama would be the first lady, the first first lady, besides Hilary, that is as impassioned as her husband and that is an example of what an American woman should be.

Can you imagine either Laura Bush or Cindy McCain making this speech? Me neither.

Fox News Attacks Michelle Obama

You’re not going to believe what FOX is up to now—we could hardly believe it ourselves. Not only are they smearing Michelle Obama with racist stereotypes, but then they offer a feeble apology that they believe gives them the right to slander her again. That’s what happened when FOX called Michelle and Barack Obama’s fist bump a “terrorist fist jab,” apologized, and then less than a week later referred to Michelle Obama as Barack’s “Baby Mama.”

FOX’s long history of racism is nothing new, but it has been particularly egregious when it comes to their coverage of the Obamas. Racism and fearmongering have no place in our country or its politics, despite what FOX would have you believe. That’s why we put together this video, FOX Attacks Michelle Obama.

We cannot allow FOX’s heinous smears and scare tactics to continue. Sign our petition and stop FOX from injecting racism, prejudice, and fear into our political dialogue. Then, send it to all your friends and family members for them to sign as well. And spread it on sites like Digg to create an uproar.

We cannot allow FOX to make politics about stereotypes, misinformation, and flat-out dishonesty. Not now. Not ever.

Democratic Convention: Obama ’08

Barack is scheduled to give his acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination next month at the Democratic Convention in Denver next month. Instead of giving his speech inside, he plans to give it in a free, open air field with 75,000 of his supporters cheering him on.

Not only that, he is also offering 10 people the opportunity to be flown into the convention with all accommodations for two days paid for and the chance to meet him backstage, just for donating $5 or more.
