First, Radley Balko explains why David Vitter and Larry Craig aren’t hypocrites:
Vitter and Craig are clearly victims, here. As National Review’s Stanley Kurtz has warned us, once the gays start marrying, it will set off a tidal wave of temptation, causing even the most robustly heterosexual men to consider cheating on their wives.
Craig and Vitter are clearly victims of Massachusetts legalizing gay marriage several years ago. We can’t expect them to take personal responsibility for what they did. Society made them do it. In sponsoring this bill, they’re merely trying to spare other straight, conservative politicians from falling victim to the chain-reaction of debauchery set off by allowing, for example, these two sinners to exchange vows. Craig and Vitter are heroes, not hypocrites.
Second, the American Family Association – a right wing nut case organization – has a policy that prohibits the use of the word gay in their news letter. Instead, they have to say homosexual. That is not the funny part. The funny part is the article they published in their news letter about Olympic hopeful Tyson Gay:
Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn’t count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind. Here’s what does matter: Homosexual qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he’s certainly someone to watch in Beijing.
“It means a lot to me,” the 25-year-old Homosexual said. “I’m glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me.” . . .
Wearing a royal blue uniform with red and white diagonal stripes across the front, along with matching shoes, all in a tribute to 1936 Olympic star Jesse Owens, Homosexual dominated the competition. He started well and pulled out to a comfortable lead by the 40-meter mark.This time, he kept pumping those legs all the way through the finish line, extending his lead. In Saturday’s opening heat, Homosexual pulled way up, way too soon, and nearly was caught by the field, before accelerating again and lunging in for fourth place. . . .
Gay’s race came with the wind blowing at 4.1 meters per second; anything above 2.0 is not allowed for record purposes.”I didn’t really care what the wind was,” Homosexual said. . . .
After the race, Homosexual and [2d place finisher Walter] Dix looked at each other and slapped palms, then hugged.
