Short Bites

Obese Drug Addict with Erectile Dysfunction Criticizes Parkinson’s Patient
Corpulent radio talk show blowhard, Rush Limbaugh (a man who knows something about self-medication) must’ve thought it would be a good idea to take on the “Hollywood elite” when he savaged Michael J. Fox over his support of stem cell research by claiming that he went off his meds as a theatrical stunt. It’s a sign of how out of touch and desperate the Repubs are that their usual schtick isn’t even playing well [in the heartland]. Further bad news for them, Zogby shows in his [latest polling] that Dems are comfortably ahead across the country as we head into the election.

Beating the Gay Drum
The recent NJ Supreme Court decision that requires the legislature in that state to come up with some way to balance the civil rights claims of gay families against those of straights is either [a boon] to the Repubs [or not]. It may be telling that even Slate’s resident [bushy-eyed bigot] — no friend to gay couples — seems to be preparing himself for the inevitability of gay civil unions that are, legally anyway, equivalent to the m-word.

Saw III Rips into America
As a sign of how ass backwards morality has become in Bush Country, while controversy still rages over whether gay couples should be encouraged to form families, not a peep from the conservative moral scolds about the fact that the [number one movie] in the country is a viciously brutal torture porn flick more obscene than anything seen at the most decadent gay pride parade. Some people are, finally, [asking] why the MPAA ratings board keeps giving a pass to these snuff films.
