Tap Your Foot Twice If You’re For Marriage…

posted by on June 27 at 12:31 PM

Stole the headline from John Aravosis because it’s just too perfect. Guess who introduced the “Defense of Marriage Act”—a constitutional amendment that ban gay marriage in the United States—in the U.S. Senate today? Those noted defenders of the sanctity of marriage Sen. Larry “Wide Stance” Craig (R-ID), and Sen. David “Vitter the Shitter” Vitter (R-LA).

Craig, of course, is a pathetic closet case who sucks off strangers in toilets; Vitter is a “family values” crusader who frequents prostitutes.

I don’t even know what to say. This is just… literally… shameless.

Indicative of how mindless their "base" is. Sheesh.

His denial is astounding, and I hope that it forever keeps him tethered to his self hate.

The song says Larry Craig is completely heterosexual. Can't argue.

You realize that this is GOOD news? You WANT the "Defense of Marriage" kooks to be forced into a corner with scum like Craig and Vitter.

I urge you all to write Sen. Vitter in support of his good work, and mail your letter to him wrapped up in an adult-sized Depends.

Is McCain a co-sponsor of the Craig-Vitter gay marriage ammendment, because it would be just swell if all three of them were together at last.

I love when irony is demonstrated so brazenly by those least-equipped to detect it.

I am absolutely stunned. I guess Christmas came early this year!

Larry Craig isn't a hypocrite, just self-interested. He wants to expand the pool of gay men who are so deeply closeted that they cruise men's rooms.

DOMA and other legislation of that ilk are cries for help from the Larry Craigs of the world. They have no personal control over their urges, so they do everything in their power to validate their "ideal" family image (taken, apparently, from "Leave it to Beaver" reruns).

When they claim that legalized gay marriage would jeopardize the sanctity of heterosexual marriage, they are talking about their marriages. If homosexuality were considered acceptable by the mainstream, Larry Craig would be as out as Truman Capote.

So, instead, he fights (unsuccessfully) his "personal demons", and he wants you to do the same.

Truer words, Mahtli69, were never spoken. Er, typed.

John Aravosis is one of the biggest tools on the Internet. I wish Dan would QUIT thinking that Aravosis is even relevant. It is his blog and haters that is destroying the Democratic party with their constant Hillary Hating. God, I wish Aravosis would just plug it! I cannot even go there anymore because of his stupid hate-filled rants against Hillary supporters. And I am a full-fledged Obama supporter who would very much like the Democratic party to unite, but people like Aravosis obviously does not see it that way.

Say "YES" to War on Iraq by Dan Savage Oct. 2002

"War may be bad for children and other living things, but there are times when peace is worse for children and other living things, and this is one of those times."

"The War on Iraq will make it clear to our friends and enemies in the Middle East (and elsewhere) that we mean business: Free your people, reform your societies, liberalize, and democratize... or we're going to come over there, remove you from power, free your people, and reform your societies for ourselves."
