Another Closeted Republican.........

From something called the "Columbian".

The police report contains an account of how Curtis allegedly donned women’s clothing, red stockings and a black sequined lingerie top before engaging in a sex act at the store. He continued to wear them throughout the night under his clothing.

Governor Ahnold says Marijuana not a Drug

That probably won't go over too well with some of his fellow Republicans. Of course they may be too busy putting nipple clamps on one another and talking about family values to notice.

Insomnia Film Festival: Score

In its student film competition, Apple gave students nationwide 24 hours to complete a 3-minute short. This entry, entitled Score, chronicles a man's calculation of how much he does for "the man," versus how much he actually lives his life

Sure it's corny, but come on. Actors in boxer briefs and "damn whale suits" are funny.

Rumsfeld in Paris, Hit with Torture Charges

and so it begins.........

From Andy Sullivan and his outstanding website.

Weird Ass Obituary of the Day

From the Telegraph.

This guy was a terrorist and a drag performer. Those wacky Irish.

Sammy Duddy, who died on October 17 aged 62, had a rather unusual curriculum vitae for a member of the Loyalist paramilitary Ulster Defence Association in having been a drag artiste who went by the stage name of Samantha.

Sammy Duddy
Duddy: one of the Ulster Defence Association’s founding members

During the 1970s the self-styled "Dolly Parton of Belfast" became well known on Belfast's cabaret circuit, presenting a risqué act in Loyalist pubs and clubs, dressed in fishnet tights, wig and heavy make-up. Once he even performed for British troops on tour.

Tom Tunney: Alderbeast, American, Freedom Fighter

The Tribune carries a story about outdoor sex in Uptown and Alderbeast Tunney criticizes the police. Last week he criticized them for giving him a ticket for driving while using a cellphone. This week it is public sex.

We seem to be building to something. I am not looking forward to next week. Sheep fucking perhaps. Now I come from a long line of sheep rapists and mud farmers, but we don't openly condone sneaking into Lincoln Park Zoo and having our way with Betsy the sheep. We like to keep our perverse sex acts private. Remember sex is only dirty if you are doing it right. You can be nasty and filthy and dirty and nasty and more nasty, but be considerate enough to do it P R I V A T E L Y. If I want to watch sex I will look at some porn or turn on the Nature Channel.

This is not as some people want to suggest a question of "gay rights". I don't give a rat's ass if you are gay and engage in sex. I don't give a rat's ass if you are straight and engage in sex. Just do it in P R I V A T E. It is a question of human rights. The right of other humans not to have to watch sex in public.

It ain't all about you Tommy boy. I already knew you were a hack politician. That is not a small group in this town. I already knew you were an embarrassment to the South Side Irish because of your hackatood. Now you are an embarrassment to the gay community. There are tens of thousands of decent gay folks in this town who don't engage in or condone public sex. I wish I could say you were one of them.

I'm not gay, although I have had my offers, but like you my family is from Ireland and you are a fucking tool and embarrassment. I hope one of the members of your large extended family has the courage to tell you what an idiotic position you have taken.

"Historically, these charges have been used as discrimination against homosexuals," said Jon Erickson, a Chicago lawyer who has defended cruising suspects. "I've never seen a straight couple charged with public indecency in Branch 29 court."

Ald. Tom Tunney (44th), the city's first openly gay alderman, said police are wasting time by trying to combat an activity "that has been going on a hundred years."

Several of his constituents in the heavily gay ward have complained about entrapment during police stings, he said. He called those people "victims."

Police "are playing a game," said Tunney, whose ward includes the Town Hall police district. "Is this really a priority when we've got violent crime on the street?"


That article is sadly funny. The "position" Tunney takes and the "position" the freelance writer takes are silly, silly silly.

Yasmin Nair, a freelance writer who has defended cruising in the Windy City Times, a Chicago gay newspaper, said public sex allows "one to negotiate sexuality outside the domestic and restrictive normative ideas of sex."

Offended birders should simply look the other way, she said.

"I would say just move your binoculars -- look for the red-breasted robin," she said. It's not as if they do it in the open where someone has to step over them."

Now I'm pro sex. S E X. There I said it. That will cause the religious right to shiver and go all atwitter.

The freelance writers assertion is stupid. It is political correctness taken to a level of absurdity seldom seen outside academia.

Here is a solution for this situation.


People should be able to birdwatch, walk, bike. or have a picnic without having to worry about seeing folks getting it on or being hit on.

Like Steve Martin I believe sex is one of the most beautiful and natural things that money can buy, but it needs to be done privately.

Harry Potter Character is Gay! GOP candidates call for him to be deported.

From CNN.

Ok, I really know little about Harry Potter. Didn't read the books or see the movies.

But having a gay character strikes me as wrong. What is next?

Batman and Robin as gay?

Fred and Barney?

Bert and Ernie?

Senator Craig and a Bathroom Divider?

Lucy and Ethel?

Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz? I'd pay to see that hot action!

Gilligan and the Skipper?

Rosie O'Donnell and Ellen DeGeneres?

Mariel Hemingway and my mom?


Cagney and Lacey?

Peppermint Patty and Velma of Scooby Doo?

The Pink Panther? Oh yeah.

Feeling Existential. Ponderous Quote for a Saturday

I found this at the site of one Andrew Sullivan. I could link to it, but you can search this mess of a page and find it. I am feeling small right now. As if my life has little or no meaning. What's it all about? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH

"When the story of humankind and its intellect has gone to its end, nothing will have happened. For this intellect has no additional mission which would lead it beyond human life. Rather, it is human, and only its possessor and begetter takes it seriously–as though the world’s axis turned in its midst. But if we could communicate with the gnat, we would learn that he likewise flies through the air with the same solemnity, that he feels the flying center of the universe within himself. There is nothing so reprehensible and unimportant in nature that it would not immediately swell up like a balloon at the slightest puff of this power of knowing. And just as every porter wants to have an admirer, so even the proudest of men, the philosopher, supposes that he sees on all sides the eyes of the universe telescopically focused upon his action and thought," - Friedrich Nietzsche.

Questions for the Republican Candidates

From Balloon Juice.

1.) “Would you have sex with a man to stop a terrorist attack?”

2.) “If lowering taxes results in increased revenues then would lowering taxes to zero result in infinite revenues?”

3.) “If you had a time machine, would you travel back in time and abort Bin Laden?”

4.) “Would you torture and kill Jesus to ensure mankind’s salvation? And how does that work?”

Keep ‘em coming, as we have a solid mission.

*** Update ***

5.) “If Russia entered Turkey from the rear would Greece help?”

6.) For Rudy specifically: “How many alimony checks does the sanctity of marriage cost?”

Lotsa great videos and audio.

It is amazing that this shit goes on week after week. The city is "trying" to get the club closed. Try harder. Makes me wonder who may have clout here. A club like that is a goldmine and a horror for the neighborhood. I would be interested to see who really owns the bar.

Makes some of our problems here seem relatively minor.

Night of the Living Republicans!

Higher Taxes Won't Buy Class

A great column by Carol Marin at the Sun Times. Click and read the entire thing and become a better person.

I'm a little worried about Chicago being a world-class city. Rome is a world-class city, plagued by world-class congestion.

Rio's world-class, and according to the Guardian newspaper, it has about 6,000 murders a year, and in the last six months, 50 cops have been killed.

London is both a world-class and Olympic city, set to host the 2012 games. But just this Sunday, the Times of London reported, "Senior executives responsible for building London's 2012 Olympic venues have accepted junkets and expensive hospitality from companies to whom they have awarded contracts worth millions of pounds." Oh, and their Olympic stadium is already $440 million over budget.

See what fun it is being a world-class city?

Cops Let Alderbeast Tunney Skip License Hassle

From the Times that is Sunny.

Ald. Tom Tunney, like thousands of other motorists, got caught talking on his cell phone while he was driving last week.

What he also got -- which most drivers don't -- was a visit from a Chicago Police officer who returned Tunney's driver's license to him at the alderman's 44th Ward office.

The license was returned Friday after Tunney called Town Hall District Cmdr. Gary Yamashiroya to tell him about the ticketing earlier in the day -- which Tunney said he didn't dispute.
