What the Hell is Wrong with These Guys?

Gay conservative group reaches out to Bachmann  

As gay-issue advocacy groups increase pressure on Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann over her views about homosexuality, the gay conservative group GOProud is requesting a meeting with the Republican presidential candidate to possibly lend a hand. 
We're considering supporting Colonel Sanders!

In an interview with Politico, GOProud chairman Christopher Barron said he was "concerned" and "troubled" by Bachmann's record and past statements about gay issues, but would not "be part of any 'war against Michele Bachmann.'"

GOProud officials generally stress that sending a Republican to the White House trumps a candidate's view on one issue. 
Sure, she's a cat, but she's gonna cut our taxes!

You know, I could see taking that position if the one issue where you disagree with a candidate was, say, monetary policy, or drug enforcement, or anything other than whether you personally deserve to be treated as a second-class citizen. How is that not a deal-breaker? It's like saying "my wife and I agree on almost everything except for the matter of her fucking other men. I'm certainly not going to let one little difference spoil our otherwise perfect marriage."
**NOTE** The preceding example has absolutely NOTHING to do with my marriage. My wife is awesome like you wouldn't believe. I was just using that as an example of an equally pathetic thing that someone, not me, could theoretically say.

GOProud's website lists 10 legislative priorities, and only one--the opposition to a federal marriage amendment--concerns gay rights.  The other nine focus on issues that could appear on any conservative group's website, such as lower taxes, support for Second Amendment rights and repealing the 2010 health care law.

Wow! It's so important to these guys to prevent people from having medical care that they would make common cause with someone who views them as undeserving of equal rights. They would rather have discrimination against them enshrined into law than have insurance companies not be able to screw people out of coverage based on pre-existing conditions. Unbelievable! What the hell is wrong with these guys? 

And the winner for most ironically named organization is. . .

Did You Know That There Are Some People Who Actually Take Dick Morris Seriously?

So apparently, Dick Morris took the hooker's toes out of his mouth long enough to talk to Sean Hannity about the debt limit.

Nothing like two guys who know nothing about economics discussing economics in the guise of experts.

Dick Morris says there is no chance of going into default. Forget the fact that everyone who actually does know anything, from academic economists to Wall Street assholes, say that the US will absolutely default if the debt ceiling is not raised. No, let's take the word of the guy who wrote THIS:

Yeah, how did that pan out again? I can't seem to remember which one of them ended up winning the presidency. Was it the one who lost her party's primary or the one who chose not to run at all?

Seriously, has Dick Morris ever been right about anything?
