They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I've never been a sports fan but if this is what happens at basketball games then point me to a box office where I can buy season tickets! But things are not always as they seem. The two University of Louisville basketball players shown in the photo above captured by Sam Upshaw Jr. of The Courier-Journal has caused "great discomfort" for Courier readers and they've demanded an apology and or explanation. Out of 90 photos taken the photographer felt this shot conveyed the emotion of the game.
It's very unlikely that the two players are gay and if they were I doubt that they would choose the middle of a game to be affectionate. So what is the big deal? I think the folks in Kentucky should just get over it. But I do love this picture!
As if 8 years of George W. Bush wasn't enough, this idiot wants to pick up where he left off. If this isn't enough to make progressives and young voters run to the polls then I don't know what it will take.
Huckabee told supporters that he favored Constitutional amendments banning abortions and gay marriage because, "it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God. What we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than trying to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family."
Huckabee gives new meaning to pandering for the evangelical vote. And all this time I thought we were electing a new leader for our country and not the Southern Baptist Convention. What was I thinking?
The Invisible Daytime Lesbian aka Ellen Degeneres
I really have nothing bad to say about Ellen. I like her a lot actually. But I can't help but wonder if Americans have forgotten that she's a lesbian. Or better yet, has Ellen forgotten during the hour she's on the air everyday. Is it in her contract to stay away from gay issues or even the word? It's been almost impossible to escape the headlines about her popularity surging past Oprah's. She's courageous,groundbreaking, out, and she dances...I get it. But Ellen definitely makes me go hmmmmmm.
Feel free to file this one under "Say What"? . As a new Barack Obama supporter(yes I've forgiven him for the Donnie McClurkin misstep)I'm quite offended by the above video clip. But I'm not sure if the Honorable James David Manning should be taken seriously, especially since his disdain for Obama is based upon him being bi-racial. Listen to it for yourself. This definitely makes me go hmmmmm.
