Pray Away the Gay Fail

At first I really thought this was satire.

I wonder if Michele of God's flambé'd husband Marcus Bachmann is this poor delusional soul's spiritual "camp" counselor. Or maybe MB just picked out his outfit as he does Michele's.

Crimes of fashion are just some of the sins displayed here. A pox on all of their houses!

It would be funny if this prayed degayed crap wasn't so harmful to gay youth trying to navigate their way to an integrated acceptance of their sexuality.

Ms Crazy Eyes

Out palsies on the right are all vapors of indignation over this photo of Michele Bachmann and her crazy eyes. Christ, she probably picked out the damn photo herself. Frankly, I beg you, find me a photo or video where she doesn't look batshit insane. Go on, find one.
She looks crazy because she IS a goddamn lunatic. She just can't hide it. And that repressed closet case whackjob she married to probably doesn't help matters (though her own self-delusion about him requires a touch of insanity.) All that Jesus-Juice has diluted her blood or something, so the crazy just oozes out though her eyes.

Scary as shit! She just might get the Republican nomination, and maybe even the presidency.

FSM, have mercy on us all!

That includes you, too, poor world at large. MerKa is going through some kind of Screamin' Mimi's right now, and you know we just gotta share.

Vent, or Risk Explosion

My country has gone bat shit insane.

Republicans are now out of the friggin minds. They hold the world economy hostage, until they can slash and burn away at the very things the middle class needs to survive, so that their corporate overlords can keep their bonuses.

And the Democrats, as the grown-ups in the room, caved surrendered are forced to acquiesce to this blackmail.

And the electorate keeps on voting for the Republicans, even as their way of life evaporates into the pockets of the obscenely rich. They are so afraid that "some lazy, good-for-nothing" brown person is getting more than their share, that the Gays will marry and this all will make the baby Jeebus weep. So on and evermore, they keep supporting these assholes, in direct conflict with their own best interests.

So we have jobs off-shored and outsourced, benefits whittled down to nothing, mass transit gutted, healthcare and education costs spiraling out of control; a nation where only the robber barons bourgeoisie gilded class can afford anything.

Welcome to America, 2011

UPDATE: I hear that a few Dem's called the Repug's out on their terrorist tactics. That's what terrorists do; take hostages. Well I guess this hurt the Republicans' feefees! Asshats to the end.
