BIG UPDATE: 22 Submariners go out to sea…

…and eleven couples return. But that’s OK with Grandpa Walnuts, as long as everyone lies about it. Walnuts has successfully filibustered repeal of DADT.

UPDATE 1 – Georgia’s Senators Offices say all faggots must die

UPDATE 2: McCain gets hysterical (someone should slap him):

UPDATE 3: Saxby Chambliss admits that the All Fags Must Die comment came from his office. Please note that he does not take any responsibility for it, though; he was busy in the Senate voting against DADT. GOP Big Tent my ass. When are the Log Cabin Uncle Tom’s Club going to break away from that group of bigots?

“We have seen the allegations and are moving quickly to understand the facts. This office has not and will not tolerate any activity of the sort alleged,” Chambliss spokeswoman Bronwyn Lance Chester said. “Once we have ascertained whether these claims are true, we will take the appropriate steps.” The comment was posted on Joe.My.God., a blog dedicated to gay and lesbian issues. “All [gays] must die,” wrote a commenter identifying himself as “Jimmy.” Blog author Joseph Jervis of New York City used the Internet Protocol address attached to the comment to trace the slur to “the neighborhood” of Chambliss’ office in Atlanta. Readers quickly helped. “Among the fields in which gay people are over-represented is the IT field,” Jervis said. The office of U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson is in the same area. But a spokeswoman for Isakson said his staff quickly ascertained that the message did not originate with them.

    Ever since he ran dry Grandpa Walnuts just doesn’t want to hear anything about semen.

    Even a broken record is right twice a day… oh wait, never mind.

    I have not seen so many scared representatives in the Senate before. Scared shit Senators blocking everything that might seem controversial. We already know that over 50% of Republicans are in favor of repeal of DADT.
    So what the F are the arguments made against repeal? Tea Baggers. Scum sucking mindless Tea Baggers spook the Senate to vote against the bill.
    Good job hate mongers. I hope you get your ass handed to you on a platter come November.
    I am voting with a vengeance.

    He is a disgrace. I am sorry to even admit I worked in a place where such pitifully small minded, spitful people allegedly run the country.

      They are using the rights of the minority argument – the minority being the GOP in this case. Seriously, they are. They are saying because they were not allowed to amend the hell out of it, as they claim is their right (including amendments that gutted it as well as pork), they wouldn’t vote for it.

      Shameless, really truly shameless.

      Of course, the Dims didn’t fight hard for it either. The thing is – if it was a priority, it would have happened. Obama could still issue and executive order and desegregate it, but he won’t. It is only grandstanding.

    Incredible, the level of denial. McCain simply will not face facts, even when the person who experienced them is sitting right in front of him. What is wrong with Americans, when the vast majority of the rest of the world’s military has no problem with gay men and lesbians serving? Why does the US military try to deny the thousands upon thousand of gay men and lesbians who have served in the past and are serving now? Utter stupidity. What a broken culture, an empire in dismal decline.


  6. What do you think, Senator?

    I think women and seamen don’t mix.
