This entry is part 7 of 26 in the series Daily Douche-Bag

We’re going to give Tony Perkins our Daily Douche award two days in a row. On Sunday, he appeared on the usually friendly Faux News Sunday to discuss the evils of marriage equality. Unfortunately, Ms. Perkins brought her pen knife intellect to a gun fight with a constitutional law heavy weight, Ted Olson, a Republican lawyer and gay marriage advocate. Hilarity ensues.

Heck, Perkins even got taken the wood shed by Fox News’ host Chris Wallace. Perkins starts with his usual, think of the children meme with “Marriage is not to affirm adults, it’s for the protection of children, and if love is the only factor, where do you draw the boundaries?”

Perkins continued to harp on the “natural established boundaries for marriage.”

“What are you suggesting? That there’s going to by polygamy, that people are going to be marrying their aunt, their pets?” Wallace asked.

“I didn’t say that,” Perkins responded, again bringing up “boundaries.”

“Alright, you and your wife live happily in this house.There’s a same-sex couple living here. What’s the damage to you?” Wallace then asked.

Perkins replied by bringing up wedding vendors put out of business by refusing to serve gay couples.

“It’s a different issue,” Wallace retorted. Watch the Video below: Continue reading »

“Glenn Beck is a logical thinker.”

up-with-teabaggingThese are interviews with the 60,00 to 70,000 people who turned out for the big Tea Bagger March in Washington. Apparently, you don’t have to really know anything about what you’re protesting. It’s all just bad because it is Obama, and some industry or media flak like Glenn Beck told you to be mad and scared.

The Tea Bagger protests were against, well, a lot of things, including health insurance reform, the IRS, abortion, global warming, and our “socialist/communist/fascist/Nazi/Muslim ” president, Barack Obama. Some of them called for a return to McCarthyism, while others called for Glenn Beck to run for office–indeed, it seemed the only thing that everyone agreed on was Fox News.

I find it strange how these are the Americans who were in support of spending close to $700 Billion on the War in Iraq killing their civilians but they are? against providing equal government regulated universal health-care to every American citizen that is similar to those who are in the military get

And even more surreal is this that these same anti-nazi/socialism/facism villagers aren’t willing to give anyone else a voice if it dissents from their own. So let’s see, what is one of the characteristics of socialism…oh yeah, that would be the idea of forceably quelling dissent.

Joe McCarthy, I would like to introduce you to someone who shares your viewpoint. Glenn Beck, this is Joe McCarthy, Joe, Glenn.

I can only hope that the day will come when Americans of all beliefs realize that Glenn Beck is either an incredible idiot who should not be on the air, or genius especially adept at raising false fears just to make a name for himself. Either way, it has truly gone beyond the pale.

Fox News Pundit Says McCain Has to Bash Gays to Win

 Election, Gay Issues, Politics, Religion, Right Wingnuts, Society  Comments Off on Fox News Pundit Says McCain Has to Bash Gays to Win

From the “comes as no surprise” category, Fox News Pundit Fred Barnes said Sunday that McCain would have to run a center/right (not sure what that actually looks like myself) in order to win the election. This would mean appealing to the far right wingnuts of the party by using the “gays in the military” and “gay marriage” issues. Barnes explicitly cites these issues.

First, on a point of clarification, Barnes is wrong is when he says about gays in the military, “This is not a popular issue.” A recent CNN poll finds that 79% of Americans believe that gays and lesbians should be allowed to serve openly, and Zogby poll from 2006 finds that 73% of service members are comfortable with gays and lesbians. (These and other related poll results here.)

The left side of the blogosphere is all in an uproar over the comments. I don’t like that this happens to be a true statement, but it is true that McCain will win friends from the krazy kristian kooks by bashing gays. This has been a winning issue for Republicans for a while now (there’s yet no real price to pay for homophobia), and the recent California ruling can certainly be used to inflame that important Republican base. So the fact is, (while I don’t like it) it’s going to happen, and it’s just a matter of time.

On the other hand, Juan Williams makes a good point as he keeps asking, “who else are they going to vote for?” The fact is, McCain doesn’t have to play the GLBT card, as the krazy kristians certainly are not going to vote for Obama, and unlike what Barnes says, they are not going to sit home and allow a black man to move into the White House. They will come out and vote for McCain just because he’s already said once that he supports Arizona anti-gay marriage amendment…that’s all it takes.

JetBlue sponsored, among many other things, YearlyKos. This is a grass roots convention of progressive bloggers and activists. JetBlue shows Fox News in flight, Their new CEO contributed $2,100 to Mitt Romney’s campaign, and they advertise on Fox.

Yet when Bill O’Reilly finds they sponsored a progressive convention, he attacks…so JetBlue. And instead of standing up for their sponsorship, and pointing out how much they support Fox, they cave in and have their logo removed from the YearKos website.

I like JetBlue, and wrote them a letter supporting them for their sponsorship. Now that I’ve seen this example of corporate cowardice, I don’t expect to be flying them any time soon.

Media Plays Fast and Loose With Party Affiliations

Since the beginning of October, Fox News and the Associated Press have incorrectly identified former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) as a Democrat while reporting on the scandal surrounding allegations that he engaged in sexually explicit electronic communications with underage former congressional pages. Other media outlets have identified as Democrats former Rep. Daniel Crane (R-IL), who was censured by Congress in 1983 for having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female page, and Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-RI), during coverage of a poll showing Chafee trailing his Democratic challenger Sheldon Whitehouse by 11 points. Whitehouse was also misidentified as a Republican.

Most of these errors have since been corrected, though several news shows, including Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, have not made an explicit on-air or in-print correction.

O’Reilly Factor executive producer David Tabacoff told Editor & Publisher on October 5 that the mislabeling was “an honest mistake.” The magazine also reported that Tabacoff said the show, in the magazine’s words, “didn’t feel it was necessary to run a specific on-air correction” the next day because ” ‘everyone knows’ Foley … is a Republican.”

Now if “everyone knows Foley… is a Republican,” why couldn’t the O’Reilly factor get it right. And you all wonder why I so often pull out my tinfoil hat.
