SNL Was Right!

I knew it!

On the November 14 edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, in reference to actions by individual protesters of Proposition 8, the recently passed California ballot initiative amending the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich stated: “I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion.” Gingrich also stated: “[W]hen the radicals lost the vote in California, they are determined to impose their will on this country no matter what the popular opinion, no matter what the law of the land.”

Because the gays in this country are incredibly powerful and always get their way. Plus there’s that alarming tendency towards authoritarianism…

Good Luck With That, Dude.

Apparently this is conservatives’ idea of minority outreach:

While discussing potential Republican outreach efforts toward African-Americans during the November 14 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, guest host Jason Lewis stated: “[T]his whole notion of taxing — taxing America’s labor — you know, I don’t know how else you describe what this sordid experience of slavery was when you take away somebody’s ability to engage in the marketplace with the fruits of their labor.” Lewis later added: “We need to go into the African-American community there on cultural issues. And they should be there on taxes, because they know what it’s like to have to work for free. And during the times of slavery, we targeted black folks. Well, now I guess it’s OK to target wealthy folks. Either way, you’re taking something that doesn’t belong to you.

Yep, taxing the rich is exactly like slavery.  Who knew that rich people and black people had so much in common?

Please, please let the GOP actually try this.

Oh, the tragedy:

Focus on the Family is poised to announce major employee layoffs today from its Colorado Springs-based ministry and media empire. The cutbacks come just weeks after the group pumped more than half a million dollars into the successful effort to pass a gay marriage ban in California.

Critics are holding up the layoffs, which come just two months after the last round of dismissals in the organization, as a sad commentary on the priorities of the families on which the ministry is truly focusing.

I’m sure they were all happy to sacrifice their jobs to prevent gay people from getting married.

Eli’s Obsession With The Google

Proof that my taste in movies is impeccable, I am on the first page of search results for super awesome movies.

In this case, it’s a post about a movie called Zombie Strippers, which is as super awesome as it gets.

UPDATE: Multi Medium 1.0 is the #1 search result for stinky plants of the rainforest.

Someone actually paid money to produce and air this…

If you ain’t gettin’ it from Ace, you just ain’t gettin’ it!

There’s a whole bunch of these, and they’re pretty much all like this – including one with their, uh, spokesman in drag.
