And what’s not to love — she mentioned in a shout-out my much-loved (often-derided) fave band Journey.

By: Saturday June 22, 2013 6:40 pm

Wow – now this is really a “we’re not worthy” moment. Received a call from the Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC on Friday. She is going to do a feature on the close of Pam’s House Blend at the end of the show on Sunday.

Conservatives Finally Realize Straight People F*ck. A Lot.

By: Monday December 10, 2012 3:43 pm

Math is hard, but basically, by cutting $73 million to Planned Parenthood, Texas will now have to spend an additional $200 million underwriting the cost of caring for almost 24,000 unplanned babies. And then there’s the cost of medications for sexually transmitted diseases–Texas has the highest rate of uninsured Americans in the United States (and a woefully weak Medicaid system facing a shortfall), so really what will happen then? Will Texas celebrate the arrival The Great Satan in the form of Obamacare?

PHB Vid Exclusive: LGBT Reception, Student Activist Delivers Letter to President: Sign the ENDA Executive Order

Friend of the Blend activist Jacob Tobia of Duke, who was there with fellow students representing the sentiments of Duke and UNC student bodies, intended to position himself at the front of the room to hand the letter to the President. I spoke with him outside while waiting in line to enter the White House. I asked him about his plan.

I was so fortunate to be able to personally thank NAACP President and CEO Ben Jealous today at Netroots Nation today for his long-time leadership on marriage equality that resulted in the civil rights organization’s recent public statement for marriage equality. Thank you Ben (and the rest of the NAACP board)!

LaBarbera, Wooden Tell Me to Find Jesus – and a Man to Breed With to ‘Rock My World’

By: Sunday February 5, 2012 4:00 pm

These guys are a regular Dear Abby column for the misguided homosexual, aren’t they? Peter LaBarbera has made a career out of playing the pious, family-focused anti-gay activist at the grade Z level, all while trolling going “undercover” to research what he believes is mainstream gay society at events like International Mr. Leather, and S&M culture events that plenty of heterosexuals also attend (his skills of observation must be pretty weak).

Sunday Late Night: Welcome, Pam Spaulding

By: Sunday June 19, 2011 8:01 pm

I am using tonight’s Late Night post for a point of personal privilege, because I have been so patient and so quiet for so long. Some months ago, I pointed Jane Hamsher to a post Pam Spaulding published about issues with her blog (Pam’s House Blend) and asked if she, Jane, thought there was a place for Pam in our bloghouse. Luckily, Jane agreed that this would be a swell fit and deputized me to find out if Pam would be interested in making her home here with us.
