My Weekend Entertainment

So what had me laughing my ass off all weekend, you say? Well, I'm glad you asked. It began during my ride home Friday and hasn't let up since.

Regarding the Mark Foley "scandal," I've heard this response:

"His sexual orientation doesn't matter," or, "It doesn't matter if he's gay," because the Democrats are just trying to smear him.

This, from conservatives. Suddenly, sexual orientation isn't on the table.

And here's the best part... the first person that I heard saying this? Michael Savage.

Yeah, that Michael Savage.

Mister "Bareback Mounting."

Mister "radical homosexuals and radical Islamists are the same thing."

Mister ""When you hear 'human rights,' think gays. ... [T]hink only one thing: someone who wants to rape your son."

Mister "Gays are fighting for perversion" and "Lesbians are jealous of AIDS."

Suddenly, when it's a Republican in trouble, Michael "Get AIDS and die, you pig" is saying sexual orientation is off limits! It doesn't matter! Stop talking about it! Stop being mean with your... your... gay smears, you mean meanies!

When just a few days earlier, he was saying this:
SAVAGE: Washington Times employee arrested in sting, just popped up. Metropolitan police today charged the director of human resources [chuckle] at The Washington Times with one count of trying to entice a minor on the Internet. Randall Casseday, 53, was arrested at 9:45 p.m. yesterday with where police said he had arranged to meet a 13-year-old girl. He had actually exchanged Internet messages and photographs with a male police officer posing as a girl. Well, OK, great. I actually think he should get a reward that it wasn't with a boy. I actually was thrilled to see it was only a girl. I'm not saying it was good that he did it. But don't get me wrong, I was stunned that it was with a girl. I mean, there is still a normal pervert out there. It's hard to believe. There are still normal perverts? It's shocking.


SAVAGE: That's how I see it. [Caller], I honestly do see it that way, and I've decided to not use the word "gay" anymore. Instead I'm using the word "hedonist" because I think it more aptly describes what I'm trying to say because the lifestyle of the homosexual and the lifestyle of a heterosexual hedonist is almost the same. So therefore, I would say the hedonist and hedonism is a better description of what I'm trying to get at with regard to why I'm hated in the media.

Ohhhh... that's why he's hated in the media. And here, I thought it was because he was a vicious, racist, hatemongering, raving lunatic.

Just remember... when a Republican is caught in skeezy activities with a young man, his sexual orientation doesn't matter. If it's anyone else, ALL GAYS ARE CHILD MOLESTERS OMFG!!!!!!11!!!

Oh, oh my goodness. I haven't laughed this hard in a long, long time.

Wait, what's that? Newt Gingrich is whining about "overly aggressive reaction" to the Foley story?
Discussing the recent resignation of former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) with host Chris Wallace on the October 1 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.'s Fox News Sunday, Fox News political analyst and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) claimed that House Republicans would have "been accused of gay bashing" if they had "overly aggressively reacted" to Foley's allegedly inappropriate email communications with a 16-year-old male congressional page when House Republicans reportedly first learned of Foley's actions in late 2005.

Stop it, you guys... you're killing me!
