Actually, that’s not fair. Amos and Andy were offensive caricatures, no doubt, but were not vain, shallow, materialistic, melodramatic, backstabbing gossips like the offensive caricatures on MTVGay’s “The A List.”
Yet the Petty Queer Establishment is silent. They must be busy searching for offensive language in the DVD release of a Ron Howard movie no one saw.
A movement hasn’t matured until it feels comfortable calling out its own. Ours remains sadly juvenile, just like the miserable bitches on Gaymos and Dandy. By the way, they’ve added a new cast member: a former pageant winner who describes herself as a “fierce diva.”
I guess she’s playing the mascot role filled by gays on the Real Housewives shows. I suppose we’re equal now.
A recent Arbitron ratings report showed the ratings for Rusty Limbo and Helmethead dipped dramatically from the previous year.
The reason, according to an unnamed “industry leader” quoted by WingNutDaily: “Liberals,” working in consort with the Antichrist Administration, “are falsifying numbers … to kill talk radio.”
I thought that was the Fairness Doctrine’s job. It’s easy to confuse all the conspiracy theories coming from the right.
This tweet was sent by a tea partier to Rep. Phil Gingrey after the Gang of Six plan was unveiled:
PLEASE run against Saxby Chambliss! Pragmatism is killing the Republic!
I understand the Atlanta streetcar is part of a broader transportation plan including the Beltline. Hopefully it all comes together. But I remain skeptical of the city’s promises, and its priorities.
The streetcar, which links Centennial Olympic Park to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, is, like most everything else downtown, aimed at tourists. Remember when Shirley cracked down on panhandlers in the “tourist triangle?” Those who actually lived and worked downtown were left to fend for themselves in favor of conventioneers and SEC football fans.
PolitiFact recently debunked the claim a streetcar will create “more than 5,600 jobs over the next 20 years.” We’ll have to wait and see whether it revitalizes struggling downtown neighborhoods (though Edgewood is rebounding quite nicely without it).
That’s what they said when the new Olympic stadium was built. Fifteen years later, Summerhill is in worse shape than ever, though it does have a nice miniature golf course gathering dust, at taxpayer’s expense.
If only it was located in the tourist triangle.
Again, I hope I’m wrong. Unlike Fanplex, the streetcar project has some merit. How much remains to be seen.
A member of the Royal Australian Air Force was seriously burnt when a portable toilet exploded in central Queensland this morning.
“It’s believed he was lighting a cigarette at the time,” said a spokeswoman.
