What's a little perjury, voter fraud and theft among friends?

Nothing to see here... just keep moving...

Indiana (Republican) Secretary of State Indicted on Charges of Voter Fraud, Perjury and Theft. 

Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White (R) indicted on seven felony counts including voter fraud, perjury and theft. 

The heart of the case stems not from any ballot stuffing scheme but from White's allegedly lying about his current place of residence, both for his voting but also, allegedly, to hold on to his town council seat. White was elected last November. The theory of the case, if I understand it correctly, is that for his Secretary of State campaign, White needed to hold on to his city council seat. And he couldn't do that because he'd moved out of the jurisdiction. So he used a fraudulent address to make the whole thing work. 

Worth noting that the Secretary of State is the state's top election official. So being indicted on perjury and voter fraud charges creates an awkward situation.

Stinkin' Hosers!

John Boner (R-Scum)
It really galls me when the Christian Conservatives call out with moral outrage about the gays and how their lifestyle goes against Christian teaching. Coming in at #9 (or 8 if you're Roman Catholic or Lutheran) on the Top 10 (or the Ten Commandments or Decalogue... the basis of the Judeo-Christian heritage,  is "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor". The Christianists seem to have no problem lying when it suits their reprehensible goals. I guess that since they can do anything they want to anyone they choose and simply ask God for instant forgiveness then they will go on lying, cheating and misrepresenting what people are doing or saying in the name of equality. 

Case in point: Speaker of the House John Boner went on the Greta van Sustren show last night and lied with such ease about President Obama's decision not to defend the odious "Defense of Marriage Act" in the courts. The Christianists keep saying that Obama isn't going to "enforce" the law of the land! Horrors! Except that he has said quite loudly that as long as the DOMA law is on the books it will be enforced. But that's not good enough for them. They will continue to whip their stupid. slack-jawed, gap-toothed half-witted followers into a Jesus-fueled frenzy by telling these lies over and over again until these fools are convinced that it is true. 

These people are such scum!

Just a reminder, in case you've forgotten...

Newt Gingrich would like to remind everybody that that marriage is between one man and one woman,  whom you abandon riddled with cancer on her hospital bed while you fuck the shit out of your mistress whom you later marry, and cheat on with a third woman, while screaming with Godly moral outrage about the infidelities of the president.


Diamonds are very nice but I think that colored stones are so much more beautiful. 

Today: Emeralds.

Anti-Gay Indiana State Rep (GOP Of course) hates gays but loves dildos in his butt


Indiana State Rep. Judson "Jud" McMillan might be against gays, legislatively speaking, but he sure loves to put things up his ass. Allegedly!

After making a public call for gossip about the state's anti-gay politicos, the website Bilerico finds a doozy of an example in McMillin, whose rectum has been reportedly photographed with a dildo inside it while a person who looks very, very similar to him is masturbating.
The young freshmen legislator, who represents a southern Indiana district on the Ohio border, grew up in the area and when he's not climbing on his moral high horse to vilify gay and lesbian relationships, he represents businesses at his family law practice – a firm that has more than once helped hide his many brushes with the law.
Not only have we learned about McMillan playing a game of "leapfrog" (where you and a friend race your cars against each other in oncoming traffic) that cost one driver his life and the life of his now-widow's still-born baby, but that during his career as a prosecutor he began an inappropriate relationship with a female victim. Though the two did date, you could say it was under duress — and she ended up suing him. But not before …
According to two sources close to the case, the photos were incredibly graphic. One photo reportedly shows McMillin masturbating and using a dildo on himself while others were simply of McMillin's genitalia. In one exchange, McMillin is alleged to have texted Stapleton that he was heartsick being separated from her and sent photos of himself masturbating with a string tied tightly from his testicles to the wheels of a rolling office chair to illustrate his pain.

[...] Stapleton and McMillin ended their relationship soon after her affidavit was filed (with the pornographic text messages and photos submitted as evidence) in Gonzalez's criminal case. A year later – and after Gonzalez's court case had been resolved – Stapleton sued McMillin in civil court for $25,000 [pdf] for legal legal1.jpgmalpractice, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and breach of fiduciary duty. In papers filed with the suit, her attorney alleged that "McMillin repeatedly contacted Stapleton in the guise of his role as prosecutor, while, in fact, pursuing a romantic relationship." "McMillin made inappropriate personal contact with Stapleton which culminated in a sexual relationship," the filing continued. "McMillin exploited his position as prosecutor in connection with Stapleton's as a victim and unwilling witness in a prosecution."
Since then, McMillan has used his legislative seat to approve a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions. Which was to be expected: On his website, he writes, "I will protect the integrity of the institution of marriage. I believe that a marriage is a union of a man and a woman before their peers, government, and most importantly, God. In southeastern Indiana the family has always been the foundation of our strength of community. Our relationships with our wives, husbands, parents, children, siblings and other loved ones provides the glue that binds our common purpose. In these times of turmoil the rest of the country could learn something from our example."

Of course enjoying anal pleasure doesn't make McMillan gay, nor a pervert or a deviant. But that's precisely what he'd have you believe all of you people are, when he enjoys many of the same rear sensations.

Filthy creep!

Drunken priest offers blow jobs to police if they will let him out of cell

You just can't make this stuff up!

Police say that Father Ignatius Kury of Holy Ghost Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic Church was drunk when he crashed his car Brimfield Township, Ohio. 

The priest was so unhinged that officers decided to record him in his cell offering them oral sex and promising that Oprah Winfrey would rescue him. At one point, Kury even offered a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

This video is from Fox News, broadcast March 3, 2011.

I hope I don't get sued

But this is too good...

Editorial Cartoon by Clay Bennett, Chattanooga Times Free Press


Two words that make my ears bleed

Mehlman and Matalin

First we have that nasty, self-loathing queen Ken Mehlman, former head of the Republican National Committee who spent the first half of the 2,000's throwing his gay and lesbian sisters and brothers under the bus in the name of power, who now thinks that because she joined GOProud (ridiculous Republican ass-kissers) and is raising money for AIDS centers, that makes everything OK. Ugh! If I had a nickel for every discriminatory, hateful, hurtful thing that creature is responsible for I'd be very well off. 

So now Miss Mehlman goes to a party to raise money for GOProud at the home of The Wicked Witch of Washington, Mary Matalin, former advisor to Dick "Darth" Cheney. Just the sound of that strega's voice is enough to make me cringe. Ugh! Ugh! The way that woman praises Mehlman's "integrity" is revolting. If you have the nerve... listen for yourself.

Warning!!! Cover your keyboards!

And don't ask me about that decor... I beg you!

March Holidays

Sally's yummy Boiled Dinner
March has some great food holidays. Of course, sometimes Easter falls in March so there's all that ham and chocolate to enjoy. I'm also partial to lamb for Easter although it has been years since I roasted lamb for a holiday. I do have a rack in the freezer that may serve the purpose. We'll see. 

Anyway I was speaking mostly of St Patrick's Day (March 17) and St. Joseph's Day (or Il Festa di San Giuseppe... March 19). We have been going to Sally Tomatoes' house lately for Corned Beef and Cabbage on St. Patty's Day and I believe that is "Ground Zero" for that meal again this year. Sally always does a bang-up job on Boiled Dinner so I am really looking forward to it.

Zeppoli di San Giuseppe
Also there are the Zeppoli di San Giuseppe that I have mentioned before in a previous post (here). We still haven't settled on a bakery for purchasing the zeppoli but I am leaning toward the suggestion of Linda, La Reine du Barbecue who suggested Zacaggnini's. So it's "Irish" on the 17th and Italian on the 19th. I can't wait.

But there's more! I forgot that Purim is on the 20th and I believe I have found the perfect item to have fun with on this festive occasion. What do you serve?

Brisket Sandwich with two latkes as buns.

Quelle Surprise!

Oddly enough the Catholic Church is not involved in this one... not yet anyway. 

Anti-Gay Pastor Grant Storms Busted As A Pedophile Pervert

New Orleans' infamous Pastor Grant Storms, who every year can be found shouting hellfire and brimstone at Southern Decadence attendees, has been arrested for masturbating in his van while watching children in a playground.
Storms told deputies that he was merely having lunch at Lafreniere Park, 3000 Downs Blvd., in his van when he decided to relieve himself using a bottle instead of using the restroom, an incident report said. But two witnesses said they saw Storms through the open windows of his van masturbating himself while watching children on the playground, the report said. The two women flagged down a park employee who notified the Sheriff's Office. The employee also detained Storms until deputies arrived. Bond for Storms was set at $5,000. But he was released from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna on Sunday because of overcrowding at the jail. Armed with bullhorns, Bibles and picket signs, Storms and a group of followers in 2003 protested against Southern Decadence, the gay three-day festival held over Labor Day weekend in the French Quarter. Storms' efforts prompted the New Orleans City Council to ban megaphones and other amplification devices.
Storms has actually held anti-gay "purity" parades through the French Quarter during Southern Decadence. But not, we're guessing, this year!

Obscene Ostentation

The Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse. The bag is valued at $3.8 million and has claimed the Guinness World Record as the most valuable handbag in the world.

Let's see... lipstick, cell phone, tampon, and a $1,000 bill for the Ladies Room attendant
The heart-shaped purse is made from 18K gold and is covered with 4,517 diamonds (105 yellow, 56 pink and 4,356 colorless) representing a total weight of 381.92 carats. Creating the bag took 10 craftsmen more than 1,000 hours to complete.

I thought they were supposed to be cutting the deficit...

Speaker Boner... Where are the jobs??!!??

Moody's says the new GOP budget plan would only lead to a mere 700,000 jobs lost.
