Well, I think we can cut an unpaid intern some slack on the Sunday of a Pride weekend.

You know what a great pride present be? The presidential candidates standing up without appologies for gays and lesbians. Until they do I just can not see giving any of them much support or money.

Appears to be the Bellevue School District that's gone homo-curriculum, not Seattle. Or at least not yet.

The Dan Savage/George Bush war on the people in Iraq continues. More suffering, more destruction, more maimed bodies, more dead children, women and men, soldier and civilian. Ahhhhhhhhh, Dan Savage will tell you, but what a glorious war it is. Freedom is on the march. We're fighting them over there so we don't have to fight 'em over here. Dan has blood on his hands as much as the most die-hard evangelical supporter of George W. bush does.

@5: Your rant is amateurish, contorted, stupid, and above all BORING!

@6, I second your motion!!!!

6 & 7 GO FUCK YOURSELF!People are being maimed and killed and Dan Savage, America's favorite cocksucker, helped Bush make it happen and you find it boring!

This isn't about Iraq, LIG, because a lot of good people and Democrats supported removing Saddam. That includes Hillary, John Kerry, Al Gore, Maria Cantwell and others. Positions change as facts come to light.

No, this is about that you are jealous of Dan Savage and thought you found an angle to elevate yourself and have folks marvel over your revelations which is really nothing more that warped hyperbole.

You know, Abraham Lincoln was at first not for freeing the slaves, he initially just wanted to stop the expansions of slavery. Why arenít you ranting against him? It makes just as much sense, from your flawed perspective.
