Enough with the sorry, Alec. Do something, something aside from revealing you have a gay hairdresser.


Rick Santorum’s “I didn’t say THAT” Tour

By: Saturday January 7, 2012 1:00 pm

Faced with long-standing agreement about what he said about same-sex unions being like “man-on-dog” as well as clear video evidence that he said he didn’t want to give “black people” more government money, Rick Santorum has taken the best GOP refuge: he’s denying that’s what he said. It’s the best refuge because it’s worked for others in his party.

Late Night FDL: Dan Savage Threatens to Redefine “Rick” if Santorum Doesn’t Behave

By: Wednesday July 27, 2011 8:00 pm

That’s right folks, if Rick Santorum goes after Dan Savage and gay people to raise money for what is surely going to be a losing campaign, Savage is going to redefine his first name as well. Now most of the time I’d take a threat like that with a big grain of salt, but this is the guy that made it so that all the little Santorum rugrats will never be able to cyber-slack by Goggling themselves.

Thirty two years ago today at 10:55 AM, openly gay city supervisor Harvey Milk was shot and killed in his office at City Hall in San Francisco. The message of hope that he preached, however, continues on, and his strategy of building coalitions and rejecting life in the Veal Pen is one progressives need to remember and repeat — that’s how you give hope.

Thanks, Harvey.

Late Night FDL: One More Cool Thing About the Internets

By: Friday October 8, 2010 8:00 pm

When our political leaders find it entirely acceptable to invoke homophobia and old stereotypes about predation to protect our children and our military from LGBT people, and those are the messages American children hear every single day — you’ve got to give them hope.

Kids are dying. It’s got to stop. We’ve all got to give them hope.
