    His anti-gay record is no surprise.

    And the gods of political irony strike again.

    They must have a great fucking time up there.

    Must suck being part of a political party that essentially kicks you out as soon as someone thinks you're bi or gay.

    Repression is a bitch, but hypocrisy more so. Tough mistresses for a gay man in politics. Enough with don't ask, don't tell, in any form.

    Ideological purity. What more can you ask for? He should be cast out of Eden.

    ^Yep... It's more Orwellian addition by subtraction, from the same people who brought us the 'revenue generating tax cut' and discretionary spending deficits that are 'good'.

    Well, in all fairness it WAS Miss Latina night (drag beauty show) at Faces in Sacramento. And who can resist the wiles of an aesthetically divine Latina -- even one with a penis. For the record, Ashburn's "passenger" was a rather handsome young Latino who was not held or charged. Personally, I would have loved to have at least held him (a little bit).

    ^Sounds like he was searching for his own Argentinian 'soul mate', ala his Republican cohort Mark Sanford...

    Well, I can speak from personal experience that Argentines -- especially porteños, the citizens of Buenos Aires -- tend to be a rather handsome bunch. Lots of green eyes, natural blonde hair, and silky smooth light brown skin.

    Surprised? No. Still, as much as I've encountered this syndrome, I never cease to be amazed.

    What level of denial and self-loathing can people sink to? And inflict on others?

    Why are they Republicans? His voting record is appalling. I just don't get it.

    And he's from Bakersfield?? Arguably the ugliest, most redneck town in the state.

    I just don't get it.

    Picked out a perfectly-named protagonist for their drama.

    Hypocrits are born that way, and they usually don't change. I hope his need to walk a tightrope of truth and lies earns him a lifetime of consequences. Don't bite the dick that fucks you! LoL

    Mark Foley was an awesome hypocrite for the right... He was the point man in Congress for sexual predator legislation, and he himself was a sexual predator!

    Although the thought of another buff, muscular man on our side of the fence is always appreciated, on behalf of "the gays" we will politely decline Big_e's application. However, if you ever decided to experiment with your 10%, please give us a call. :biggrin1:

    Both of you either totally missed my point or you got my point and that was the best comeback you could come up with. As for the lifting suit thats required competetion gear. I took second in the worlds this past year.
