Gays: 1, Politicians: 0.

I'm going to need an extra dosage of pills to get through this political season, I think, because we are DROWNING IN IT right now. Yes, I know, it's probably bad where you live, too, but remember, I live in Iowa, and we're kind of a big deal, you know, because we have the first caucus and it's in January and OH GOD IT CANNOT BE OVER SOON ENOUGH.

I even got a message on OK Cupid from some dude wanting to know if I was voting for Ron Paul, and if not, then who? To which I was like, I am a registered Democrat and therefore I cannot participate in the caucus. Which was code for "leave me alone." AND THEN! Then he sent me an IM that was all "Ron Paul! Ron Paul!" and I was like, when the fuck did dating sites become avenues for political campaigns? And then I promptly closed out of it and went on my merry way because fuck online dating anyway.

ANYWAY. My point is that I am not going to blog about politics unless I have something awesomely snarky to say, because the state of the world makes my blood pressure rise and will inevitably result in the actual explosion of my head, so.

I do have something awesome (and snarky!) for you today. Which is why we are here. Or at least it's why I'm here. I don't know why you're here.

Someone tweeted this and I thought it was awesome: the gay community in Minnesota sent a formal apology to MN Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch for ruining her marriage and causing her to cheat on her husband.

"On behalf of all gays and lesbians living in Minnesota, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for our community's successful efforts to threaten your traditional marriage...We apologize that our selfish requests to marry those we love has cheapened and degraded traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy union for something more cheap and tawdry."

Say it with me: bahahahahahahaha.

yesssssss. I'm still confuzzled as to why MN doesn't allow gay marriage. They seem pretty fucking liberal. Except Michele Bachmann, but apparently she is under the impression she's an Iowan now, or at least that's how she's framing it for her Iowa campaign. fuuuckk

Ron Paul or bust. That's how I feel.

Not that I want to advocate for gays not having equal rights, because I obviously don't, but some of the sarcasm and snarkiness that has come out of pro-LGBT activists recently against politicians in response to their bigoted legislation is just AMAZING.
