Speaking of the Throwdown at the Hoedown, now the Right is accusing the homeowner of sexually assaulting Bristol Palin.

So it is now the day after audio and pictures of the brawl have been released by the Anchorage Police, and media outlets on the Right have finally decided on their plan of attack in covering it.

Essentially, Bristol's been victimized. Perhaps even sexually.

Take a look at this from the Daily Caller:  

When news trickled out about the Palins being involved in a drunken brawl, I was mildly amused. The narrative was that this band of rich hillbillies was at it again. Then I saw this disturbing quote from Bristol Palin (being questioned about the incident): 

“I walk back up. “Did you push my sister?” And some guy gets up, pushes me down on the grass, drags me across the grass. “You slut, you fucking cunt, you fucking this.” I get back up, he pushes me down on the grass again. And I have my five year old, they took my $300 sunglasses, they took my fucking shoes, and I’m just left here?

“A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, in my dress—in my thong dress, in front of everybody—”Come on you cunt, get the fuck out of here, come on you slut, get the fuck out of here.” I don’t know this guy.” 

IF this is true (and we may never know for sure, but she sounds sincere), then Bristol Palin was physically, verbally — and possibly even sexually – assaulted by a man.

The reporter, Matt K. Lewis, then goes on to suggest that Bristol's victimization should be the lead story, and that the media's refusal to recognize that demonstrates bias on their part.

What Lewis fails to recognize, and I think purposefully, is that the key part of his article was "if this is true."

But it's not true, and proven by the testimony of everybody who is NOT a Palin family member.

However that is unimportant as the Right now has their meme and they are going to run with it.

And this Right Scoop article drives that point home: 

CNN host Carol Costello can barely contain her excitement over hearing the new audio of the ‘brawl’ in Alaska that involved Bristol Palin a few weeks back. 

After the audio concluded, Costello said “I think that long beep was my favorite part,” referring to the beep that replaced a long string of expletives from Bristol Palin. 

Costello then quoted Sarah Palin’s Facebook post where she had remarked how proud she was that Palin defended the family, noting that it made her heart soar. Costello ended it by saying smugly “You can thank me later.” 

What’s so disturbing about Costello’s smug excitement over this audio is the actual content of the audio, in which Bristol Palin is incredibly upset as she describes to police how she and her sister were assaulted by someone at the party. I’m not sure how something like that can excite someone so much. Costello clearly has such contempt for the Palins that she apparently gets off on harm coming to the Palins. 

I suspect if these were Barack Obama’s girls in the same situation, Costello would be defending them instead of laughing at them. 

Yeah, you know what? The Obama girls are NEVER going to be in this kind of situation. They are far to well parented for that.

I know that playing the victim is the favorite Palin tradition, but that is simply not going to work in this case.

Those audio tapes reveal the Palin family as the foul mouthed bullies that we all know them to be.

They can try to shape this story any way they want, but in the end there is no escaping the fact that the party was completely drama free until the Palins arrived, and after that at least three fights broke out and every one of them involved at least one member of their family.

Sarah Palin attempting to distract from the brawl on Hannity last night. Nice try lady.

I actually almost did not cover this as I think it the far less important or interesting story about Sarah Palin today. (For that just go down a few posts.)

However it is kind of my thing to talk about her Fox appearances so here goes.

First off she is once again dressed in that hideous yellow pleather jacket, which looks like part of an ensemble from the "Streetwalker Barbie" collection.

Then she starts off with this dismissive tone as she addresses a quote about President Obama by Tina Brown:

"How ironic, Because that little lady, Tina Brown, she is such a big part of the problem. She with her, and her ilk, so uber-uppity, so cocksure of their untouchable elitism."

Say what?

Damn somebody is particularly venomous today.

Palin then goes on to blame liberals for keeping women down by making them dependent on social programs.

About Tina Brown she says, "Chick you're a day late and a dollar short." 

Yes because REAL pro-women women usually refer to other women as "chicks."

For somebody whose entire family was just outed as a bunch of drunken trouble makers, Palin is oddly arrogant and seemingly pleased with herself as she makes statements like this:

 "Because these maladroit fake feminist women, They have such a double standard, so hypocritical as they would support anyone who would have sympathy for Muslims who do treat women so poorly. So inhumanely and not do all they can to stop the rise of radical Islam that would adversely affect America's interests.

(I bet you did not know that not stopping the spread of radical Islam was a failing by feminists now did you?)

Hannity then gets sneaky and tricks Palin, who as we know is always throwing her support behind these far right challengers to Republican incumbents, into admitting that voting for the Republican candidate, even if he is not as ideological pure as she might like, would be better than allowing the Democrats to take that seat.

At the end Palin manages to again make her pitch that Obama's recent remarks that many Democrats currently in tight races voted with him, essentially dooms Mark Begich. (Who she disrespectfully refers to as "Marky-Mark.)

"GOP establishment you better not blow it. You better take this gift as gold and capitalize on it."

You know that's actually good advice.

And that is why I will be using the newly released information about that drunken brawl for weeks to come.

Hey if you want somebody to talk about "bull sex" and blame suicide on the victim's friends and family. Then Alaska's Rep. Don Young is your man.

"And that's how gay sex works. Buncha perverts."
Courtesy of TPM:  

The Alaska Dispatch News reported that students and staff at Wasilla High School said U.S. Rep. Don Young (R-AK) "acted in a disrespectful and sometimes offensive manner to some students, used profanity and started talking about bull sex when confronted with a question about same-sex marriage" during his 60-minute appearance. 

When one student asked Young why he thought same-sex marriage was so bad, the congressman responded: “You can’t have marriage with two men. What do you get with two bulls?” according to Wasilla Principal Amy Spargo.  (Apparently Young answered "bullshit" to that last question.)

Witnesses told the Dispatch News that Young's comments on suicide also stunned the assembly, as students and staff were mourning the loss of a Wasilla student who took his own life last week. Young mentioned alcohol and depression and said that suicide shows a lack of support from friends and family, according to the witnesses. 

"When I heard 'a lack of support from family' and I heard 'a lack of support from friends,' I felt the oxygen go out of the room, but I gasped as well," Spargo told the newspaper. "It just isn't true in these situations. It's just such a hurtful thing to say."

Apparently Young's office realized that the fossil had once again made a giant fool of himself so they issued a half assed apology:

 “Congressman Young was very serious and forthright when discussing the issue of suicide, in part because of the high number of tragedies that affect Alaskan youth. He discussed what he believes are leading causes of youth suicide in our state and shared some suggestions for helping family members and friends who are dealing with suicidal thoughts,” spokesman Matt Shuckerow wrote in an email. “In no way did Congressman Young mean to upset anyone with his well-intentioned message. In light of the tragic events affecting the Wasilla High School community, he should have taken a much more sensitive approach.”

According to the Dispatch Young also said that one of the students who challenged him in the discussion needed "to learn some respect."

I imagine that when that young man is in the presence of somebody deserving respect he will do just that.

"How does it feel to get robbed with your own gun?" There is one Washington resident who can answer that question.

Courtesy of KOMO News:

A local man was robbed by an acquaintance with his own gun while trying to sell it to a friend of the acquaintance earlier this month in Mukilteo, according to the Mukilteo Police Department. 

According to police, the victim took a ferry to Mukilteo with a 21-year-old acquaintance from Oak Harbor, who happens to be a convicted felon, in order to sell a gun to a friend of the acquaintance. 

The victim and acquaintance met the buyer, a 23-year-old Everett resident, in a parking lot near the ferry, and the buyer agreed to purchase the gun for $1,000, according to police. 

All three men decided to go to the buyer's apartment so the victim could show him how to clean and reassemble the gun. On the way, the acquaintance reportedly put a live round into the gun's chamber and pointed it at the victim's head. 

According to police, the acquaintance asked the victim, "How does it feel to get robbed with your own gun?"

The other two men then took the victim's cell phone and kicked him out of the car before warning him not to call the cops.  

Damn if only the good guy with the gun had not sold the gun to the bad guy, making him a bad guy with a gun, who then used it to rob the good guy, now without a gun, of all of his stuff.

You know it is almost as if guns place too much power in the hands of people who should not have such power, and allows them to then victimize others who would usually feel safe from such aggression.

But hey, we're the greatest country on earth and according to the NRA the 2nd Amendment keeps it that way, so that's just silly talk. Right?

Right?

Alaska Dispatch has all of the audio from the drunken brawl. No bleeping here folks.

"I love my Bristol!"
So I spent quite a lot of my night last night listening to the audio over at TPM. They have pretty much all of it, so it took quite some time.

I was going to transcribe it but there is just too much.

Then I found that Alaska Dispatch had the audio as well, and made it accessible to be embedded so I have done that below with a few of the most provocative parts. (To listen to them all just head on over to the Dispatch.)
Here is how the Dispatch described this one:

Through sobs, Bristol Palin, described as "heavily intoxicated" in the police report, tells police she was pushed to the ground and dragged across the grass while Klingenmeyer called her names. “They took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f**king shoes and I’m f**king just left here?” 

The officer asks where she’s injured. “My f**king knees, my face, where’s my sh*t? I have a 5-year-old in the car,” she replies. 

Steve Lebida, identified in the police report as being involved in the fight on the sidewalk in front of the home, is interviewed as he leaves the party. “I think I tripped and fell,” he initially tells police, but later says he was beat up. His driver says she is taking him to the hospital, and police allow him to leave. 

After police interview several other people who are leaving the party, the Palins begin arguing with the officer about why he allowed others to leave. Willow Palin tells the officer, “Seriously, (Bristol) got beat to the ground and you are just going to let him go away?”

Funny how Willow describes Bristol as "mentally hurt" after the fight. I also wish the police had more carefully questioned this Steve Lebida guy, as he is clearly afraid to speak on the record.

And Bristol keeps talking about her "five year old in the car," is very reminiscent of her mother hiding behind Trig to deflect criticism or to keep from answering probing questions.

The second part of the interview is with Mark McKenna who parrots the Palin's version of events, but absolutely throws Bristol under the bus and does not back up her story of being dragged around by her legs.

Here is how the Dispatch describes this portion:

At minute 6:49, homeowner Klingenmeyer recounts his version of events: A fight broke out in the front of the house, after which Klingenmeyer was approached by Bristol Palin, looking to start a fight with another woman. When Klingenmeyer stopped her, Palin hit him in the face, he tells police. 

Matthew McKenna is interviewed after Klingenmeyer, explaining that the fight involving Todd and Track Palin was fueled by alcohol. “(Steve Lebida) was mouthing off to another drunk guy,” McKenna said. 

At 20:21, Todd Palin interjects and confronts Klingenmeyer. “Did you call Bristol a slut, or what’s up man?” Todd Palin says. 

"Todd, really?" Klingenmeyer replies. 

Klingenmeyer tells Palin, “You need to go on another reality show.” 

As the situation escalates, an officer says, “Let’s break this up.” In the background, others tell Track Palin to back off and stay out of the confrontation.

That interaction between Todd and Korey is very interesting and clearly demonstrates why he is called the enforcer. I also find it interesting that Todd seems to be prompting McKenna as to what version of the fight that happened with Todd and Track he needs to tell.

Here is how the Dispatch describes this portion:

Willow Palin can be heard reiterating that Klingenmeyer was calling her sister expletives and says that Bristol never landed a punch on Klingenmeyer. 

At the mention of a possible video of the event, an unidentified man tells police, “These are friends of mine and (the video) ain’t going out to anybody. 

The video don’t exist.” “I don’t have to owe you video because you’re a cop,” the man says.

You can clearly hear Willow in the background claiming that Bristol missed every punch she through at Klingenmeyer, and also that weird "I swear to God on my Down syndrome brother's life" phrase.

And I love hearing Todd telling Willow to shut up.

As for the guy telling the police that he does not "owe the video to you" that is clearly Mark McKenna. And if Klingenmeyer decides to press charge, then despite his protests to the contrary he WOULD have to produce that video.

You can hear Eric Thompson giving his account of events as well. Sounds EXACTLY like what he told the press later.

And the rest of the witnesses on the audio back up Klingenmeyer's version of events.

Here is how the Dispatch describes this portion:

A chaotic scene unfolds in which a child can be heard crying and the Palin family is heard yelling in the background. 

A police officer speaks with Track and Todd Palin, who give a convoluted version of events. Track Palin believes they are in Eagle River at a party that was “kosher” until some men started insulting his sister. 

Todd Palin said a “father-and-son team” came down from the house and “cold-clocked” their friend Steve Lebida. “When that happened it just escalated,” Palin said. 

Witness Brian Horschel tells police that he didn’t see the fights but that Track Palin was picking a fight with Todd inside the house before the altercation began. 

This is the portion where you can clearly hear a child crying. And I am about 99% sure that is Tripp.

Track clearly comes off as an arrogant asshole. And Todd's attempts to control what he says is fails miserably.  (I love the part where Track claims to know Jiu Jitsu. I call bullshit on that buddy.)

At the end you can hear Bristol claiming that she has "no clue" if she hit Korey or not. Clearly extremely drunk.

This last audio is where Klingenmeyer is highly agitated and wants the police to do something, and get the Palins off his property.

Here is how the Dispatch describes this one: 

A highly agitated Korey Klingenmeyer approaches and asks police to take control of the scene. “These Palins running up here on my property acting like they own it is not gonna fly with me. … I don’t give a f*ck if their name’s Palin or f*cking Obama, cause they don’t mean sh*t to me,” he says.

It is pretty clear that Klingenmeyer really wanted to press charges against Bristol, but sadly he was apparently talked out of that. "I want to press charges against Bristol fucking Palin."

There is literally SO much on these audio tapes that there is simply no way to type it all out. So absolutely feel free to share in the comments section anything that the Dispatch and I missed.

Like I said I have listened to this quite a lot, and at this point if I do not have to hear Bristol crying, Willow yelling obscenities, to Track acting the bad ass it will be too soon.

Man they certainly do put the "fun" in dysfunctional.

(P.S. Please make sure to visit the Alaska Dispatch and give them some hits as we owe them for their hard work.)

Wanna a really scare your neighbors this Halloween? Dress up like a Palin family member.

So Raw Story decided to list possible ideas for Christian or hypocrisy meme themed Halloween costumes.

Among others they list science deniers, gay marriage, the Marxist-Nazi-Anti-Christ version of President Obama, and of course the Abstinence Spokesperson.

Under that last one they use the following description:  

ABSTINENCE ONLY 

What You’ll Need: Long brown hair or a wig; a suit (skirt and jacket) or a professional dancer outfit; name tags; a sharpie; a pillow; a real life or toy baby or toddler; a bottle of Mountain Dew or a bottle of Bleach; condoms; a hole-puncher. 

Instructions: Put on a suit or a Dancing with the stars outfit and shove a pillow in it so you look pregnant. Also wear a long brown hair wig. Write Bristol Palin on a name tag and put it on yourself. Write Tripp Palin on a name tag and put it on real or doll baby. Take the condoms out of the wrapper and hole punch through each one in a few places. Then put the condoms in your pocket. Carry around the baby in one hand all night. In the other hand carry the bottle of bleach or Mountain Dew. Offer people sips and explain that abstinence only is the best policy but that if they’re in a jam, they should drink some Mountain Dew so they don’t get pregnant. Take out the hole-punched condoms and explain that those never work.

Now where do we think they got the idea for a Dancing with the Stars outfit with a pillow shoved up into it?

 Boy THAT would certainly frighten the neighbors into giving up their candy.

Gee it's almost as if not everybody was fooled by this explanation for Bristol's DWTS weight gain from her book:


 "This show actually took my activity level down a notch."

I guess the Palins simply think that EVERYBODY is as stupid as they are.

Very accurate depiction of how this works in America.

Just one of the reasons that I support Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers' bill to remove the tax exempt status from churches.

If they won't stay out of our politics and public education then they can damn sure pay for the privilege of participating.

Meghan McCain regrets comparing Michele Bachmann to Sarah Palin. Insulting Sarah Palin, not so much.

Courtesy of Politico:  

Meghan McCain, always outspoken, says she’s got one big regret — calling Rep. Michele Bachmann a “poor man’s Sarah Palin.” 

“That’s the one if I could take it back I would, because I just think it’s so linear and so nasty,” McCain said in an interview with POLITICO. “And I’m not a big fan of attacking another woman anymore.” 

But McCain said she doesn’t regret the comments she’s made about Sarah Palin herself. McCain’s lamented the fact that she’s still connected to her father’s former running mate and recently referred to her as a kind of “crazy aunt.” In her book “Dirty Sexy Politics,” McCain slammed Palin for bringing so much drama and stress to the campaign, noting she may have been one of the reasons her father lost. 

“You know Sarah Palin, some of the stuff I said, again I would maybe term differently,” McCain told POLITICO. “But I think the criticism I have said of her is fair. I’m surprised how much attention it still gets, just because people still talk about her all the time and I understand the curiosity, but at a certain point I wish it wouldn’t make as much news as it does, but I guess people will always love to hear about it.” 

Yeah I have NO idea why McCain would regret insulting Bachmann (I guess they're friends now or something.), but I totally agree that the best use of Sarah Palin's name these days is to be used to  as a measuring tool to determine the ignorance or incompetence of other people in the world.

And yes people will never tire of hearing people say negative things about Sarah Palin.

Why do you think IM is as popular as it is?

Pictures of the drunken brawl? Yes please! Updated wtih audio!

Nice try Bristol.
So Talking Points Memo got their hands on the actual police photos of the drunken brawl and is presenting them for public consumption, and to get some help identifying those in the photos.

Here is a portion of the article:

The Anchorage Police Department finally released photos on Tuesday from the bloody, drunken brawl involving members of the Sarah Palin clan. 

The photos, apparently taken by Anchorage cops who were called to investigate, showed mostly bloody flesh and various pieces of evidence from the aftermath of the altercations at a house party in September.

 As you can see the pictures do not show any faces, but I bet you can identify those shoes on the left.

I am not going to sample any more of he photos here, as TPM deserves all of the traffic so definitely go over there and take a look and then come back here to share your opinions.

If you want to of course.

And here's the audio courtesy of Extra TV:  

A clearly distraught Bristol is also seemingly beside herself when her interview begins, saying, “I have a 5-year-old in the car, so if you’re going to question me, question me.” 

The police officer responds, “Do you want to talk to me? Come talk to me away from your family.” 

This is when Bristol goes into explicit detail, claiming she was jumped after trying to defend sister Willow, who had also been attacked. “A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground… takes me by my feet, in my dress… my thong dress in front of everybody. Come on you c**t, get the f**k outta here! Come on you s**t get the f**k outta here.”

Oh this is awesome!

You can hear the Palins spinning their tale, and attempting to destroy the reputation of the homeowner.

And at several points Bristol admits that Tripp is in the car.

Korey Klingenmeyer needs to sue.

Update: They also admit that there is video, and then somebody, I an sure it's Todd, suddenly says "These are friends of mine, the video don't exist." 

In other words whoever took that video was convinced not to share it by the Palins.

Update 2: Radar Online has a much longer audio. (Below the fold.)

Oscar Pistorius receives a five year sentence for murdering his girlfriend in cold blood. And the kicker? This did NOT happen in America.

Courtesy of the BBC:  

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been given five years in jail for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. 

Judge Thokozile Masipa also gave Pistorius a three-year suspended sentence for a firearms charge. 

The parents of Reeva Steenkamp told the BBC they were happy with the sentence and relieved the case was over. The defence said it expected Pistorius to serve about 10 months in prison. 

Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide but cleared of murder. 

Prosecutors had called for a minimum 10-year term, and the defence had argued for community service and house arrest.

This POS fires a gun through a closed bathroom door, when only he and his girlfriend were in the house. How is that NOT murder?

 Witnesses heard arguing and a woman screaming before the gunshots. That does not sound like there is any possibility that Pistorius was asleep and did not know that his girlfriend was awake as well.

And the defense was incredibly weak as there was NO reason for this asshole to believe that there was a home invasion, and every reason to believe that the person behind the locked bathroom door had to be his girlfriend. And yet he can fire through the door killing her and only get a five year sentence?

I'm sorry that just drives me crazy.

Bob Cesca bravely fights for America's right to mock Sarah Palin. And so far he is winning.

Courtesy of The Daily Banter:  

For the last several months or so, I’ve been following the intellectually-impaired grifter antics over at The Sarah Palin Channel — Palin’s recently launched subscription service, which also happens to feature free-to-the-public videos posted on the main page. In the process of covering the Sarah Palin beat, it’s been necessary to excerpt sections of her videos and to subsequently embed the “takeouts” (Antonin Scalia’s word) on The Daily Banter in the context of reviewing her illiterate blather. 

One of the clips in particular went viral. You might recall the video in which Palin lapsed into some sort of aphasia or stupor and began to babble about Elizabeth Warren, fast food and Purgatory. To date, no one’s been able to adequately decipher what she was saying. Accordingly, my excerpted clip and the accompanying article spread throughout the blogosphere and, as of late September, was pushing toward 700,000 views. 

However, the view count was halted and the video was disabled when Sarah Palin’s production company stumbled upon it. 

Cesca goes on to share the forms he had to fill out, and the hoops he had to jump through, in order to get YouTube to listen to his side of the story after TAPP complained that he was essentially stealing content.

Cesca also mentions in this piece that Palin herself has argued for the 1st Amendment rights of those on the Right, often confusing them with the right of an employer to fire an employee for saying controversial things on the air.

After Cesca explained to Yo0u Tube that he was using the snippet under the fair use clause for journalistic purposes, and also pointing out that TAPP did the same by borrowing from Elizabeth Warrren's speech so that Palin could mock her, he got his video back up.

Which you can see here:

(Oh I forgot how awesome that was!)

So this is good news for all of us, for as you know I will not pay to watch Palin make a fool of herself on that crazy ass channel blog  of hers, but I will certainly make fun of any video that others snatch from that sea of desperation and bring out into the light for the amusement of others.

Speaking of desperate and amusing, late last night Palin decided to finally come out for Mark Begich's opponent, and her former Attorney General, Dan Sullivan.

This from her Facebook page: 

Barack Obama, thank you for sealing the deal for the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Alaska, Dan Sullivan! 
-Sarah Palin 

"These are all folks who vote with me!" - Barack Hussein Obama October 20, 2014 (Geez is she still using his middle name as a slam against him? Grow the fuck up.)

This then links to a Breitbart article, big surprise, that contains this statement from the President that he made yesterday:   

"Here's the bottom line: We've got a tough map. A lot of the states that are contested this time are states they didn't win. So some of the candidates there, you know, it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout. The bottom line is, these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in congress. They are on the right side of minimum wage. They are on the right side of fair pay. They are on the right side of rebuilding our infrastructure. They're on the right side of early childhood education. So, this isn't about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. And I tell them, I said, you know what, you do what you need to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn up."

As you can see it does not mention Mark Begich by name, or even which states the President is talking about, but the Republicans have been quick to pounce on it and to start using it against Democrats in red states.

It contains nothing new, and of course reminds the voters who put these individuals in office in the first place why they are the best candidate for 2014, but in Palin's world it "seals the deal" for Dan Sullivan.

And all I can say to that is if she is so determined to help Dan Sullivan win then she needs to get SarahPAC to endorse him and start making appearances with him in the state.

I mean if she is really a king maker with conservatives then this is her opportunity to prove it.

Unless she is afraid that is.

Shooting ranges linked to lead poisoning. Well THIS explains a lot.

Courtesy of The Seattle Times:  

Thousands of people, including workers, shooters and their family members, have been contaminated at shooting ranges due to poor ventilation and contact with lead-coated surfaces, a Seattle Times investigation has found. 

Those most at risk are employees who work around firearms, unknowingly inhaling lead-tinged dust and fumes as they instruct customers and clean shooting ranges of spent ammunition. Lead exposure can cause an array of health problems — from nausea and fatigue to organ damage, mental impairment and even death. 

Even those who’ve never stepped inside a gun range have become sick. Employees have carried lead residue into their homes on their skin, clothes, shoes and work gear, inadvertently contaminating family members, including children, who are the most vulnerable to lead’s debilitating health effects. 

For the public, shooting firearms is the most common way of getting lead poisoning outside of work, according to national statistics.

"Nausea, fatigue, organ damage, mental impairment, death," damn that exercising of your 2nd Amendment rights can really take a toll on a fella.

Kind of makes you wonder if the lunacy of the pro-gun folks is due to their overwhelming fetish for guns, or simply the result of too much lead in their systems. Or maybe a combination of both.

Well I'll tell you one thing, it certainly puts some of these accidental shootings into perspective.

Kind of hard to control a weapon when you have lost the feeling in your arms and hands.

Pat Robertson claims that thanks to the Supreme Court the "onslaught of homosexual behavior" is having "deadly consequences."

Courtesy of Raw Story:  

“This onslaught of homosexual behavior that is being forced on us by the Supreme Court of the United States is having deadly consequences,” Robertson announced on the Monday edition of The 700 Club. “I was afraid it was going to happen. It has happened now in Idaho.” 

“If I were that couple, I’d get ahead of the curve. I’d get on an airplane and leave Idaho or get in your car and drive across the border into Montana,” the TV preacher recommended. “Get out of that state. And if need be, close your chapel down. I mean, just get out ahead of it because this is outrageous.”

You know I am not sure that Robertson clearly understand just how far progress has spread on this issue. Currently there are 31 states where same sex marriage is legal, and only 19 that are still fighting the inevitable.

 That does not leave a whole lot of places that you can drive to from Idaho where these people can get away from "teh gays."

By the way does anybody have a body count as to how many people have been killed thus far by this "deadly" increase in same sex marriage?

I know people do this for Christmas, but Halloween too?

 If this house were in my neighborhood I wouldn't even bother to decorate.

I have a couple of Styrofoam tombstones and a skeleton for the door, but that's about it.

Still I bet they hand out full size candy bars and homemade popcorn balls.

I love homemade popcorn balls.
