Guidelines for Identifying Gays!

Malaysia's Education Ministry had endorsed “guidelines” to help parents to identify gay and lesbian “symptoms” in their children so they can take early corrective measurements.

Symptoms of gays:
  • Have a muscular body and like to show their body by wearing V-neck and sleeveless clothes (I didn't know about the v-necks or sleeveless thing);
  • Prefer tight and light-coloured clothes (I'm thinking.... Pastels! - Regent Virini);
  • Attracted to men (Duh-uh); and
  • Like to bring big handbags, similar to those used by women, when hanging out. (Pay attention TCW!)

Newspaper editorial boards react to Romneys idiocy on Libya

WM Romney R-Douchebag
Thanks to John Aravosis for this list:

NYT: "An extraordinary lack of presidential character"
Washington Post: "A discredit to his campaign"
Los Angeles Times: "An outrageous exercise in opportunism."
Boston Globe: “His statement was offensive on many other levels…Romney’s actions raise more doubts about himself than Obama.”
Philadelphia Inquirer: “Mitt Romney didn't wait for expert assessments to use the four diplomats' deaths to launch his own verbal assault.”
Miami Herald: “Profoundly inappropriate”
Tampa Bay Times: “The Republican nominee continued to exploit the situation”
Sarasota Herald-Tribune: “Prematurely lobbed off-base criticism”
Cleveland Plain Dealer: “Mitt Romney's trigger finger was so quick that he didn't even get it right”
Akron Beacon Journal: “Unfortunately, Mitt Romney chose to ignore the distinction.”
Boulder Daily Camera: “For someone whose campaign has been studded with tone-deafness abroad, this was stunning, undiplomatic and undemocratic rhetoric.”
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “Yes, it was sad and pathetic to see such callous and uninformed statements from politicians who couldn't wait until they had the facts to use an international incident for political gain.”

Republican lies and the liars that tell, repeat, and defend them

In the midst of an ongoing and developing foreign policy crisis, Republican presidential candidate (and complete douchebag), Mitt Romney stepped up to a podium and lied, misled and proved himself completely unsuitable to lead this country. John Aravosis of Americablog has a terrific column today on the defense of Romney by Republican hacks and liars in the aftermath of his unseemly, opportunistic and completely disgraceful display of intemperance. Money quote:

At that moment in time, when American lives were on the line in Libya and Egypt, no one in America gave a damn about what Mitt Romney was thinking.  But there he was, smirking like an idiotgetting his facts wrong, and treating the death of an American diplomat as "an opportunity."

Not very presidential.  But oh so Republican. 

Is there any doubt that this lying fool would be a disaster as President? To me the answer is a resounding "NO"!

If your site or email is hosted on one of GoDaddy's Windows-based servers you are experiencing the outage. Sites hosted on GoDaddy's Linux servers seem to be unaffected. 

Please stand by...
