I just saw it!
My head hurts!
No homosexuals in it!
There were lots of homosexuals in it--just no homosexual sex.
H Lee Pace
Lee had his own craft services table set up where he would give cast and crew stress relieving blowjobs to any cast and crew who wanted. And we ALL wanted.
Lee Pace was the prettiest of all the men.
The movie had every white male actor currently working in it. Including the odd-ball boyfriend from "Girls".
It seemed like every hit TV show was represented....justified, deadwood, alphas, breaking bad.
Did I miss something? Who was in it from Breaking Bad?
[quote] No homosexuals in it!
Excuse me, ABRAHAM LINCOLN was a homosexual. Didn't you read my book?
That homosexual who wrote the screenplay, Tony Kushner, certainly did.
And we all know about Mr. Spielberg's proclivities - just ask that stalker who's in jail now...
There seemed to be something going on between Lincoln and two different men in his lifetime. I thought it would at least be alluded too. Did I spell that wrong?
I love Lee Pace and I wish he was in more films.

You did fine with "alluded," but "to" proved beyond your capabilities.
Lincoln slept with men (documented evidence with three men and one of them as President in a 34 room mansion -- no need to share a bed here)
1) Billy Green, slept with him on a narrow cot,
2) Joshua Speed, slept with him for four years,
3) David Derrickson, an Army Officer, slept with him at the Presidential Retreat in 1862--together went to church services, theater and became a bro-mance, daughter of a Supreme Court Justice gossips about this
Lincoln got married at 34.
Very unusual for his day.
There are lots of eldergays drive Lincoln. What do you mean you saw a Lincoln with no homosexual in it?
Is it possible your headache was from seeing a Hyundai?
Gale Boetticher (played by David Costabile) was the chemist hired by Gus Fring that Jessie killed.
Constabile played a senator.
Oh, funny. R13. I remembered him from THE WIRE. I forgot that he was in BREAKING BAD, too. Thanks!
I agree with you but he's gay anyway.
Lincoln slept with men BUT wasn't gay. It was common for friends to sleep together back i those days.I also say this in hopes of throwing the Log Cabin queens under the bus!Sick and tired of hearing about Lincoln and his bedmates.
It was also common "NOT GAY" practice for young males to engage in frontage with each other. Thus the " Abe has beautiful thighs" quote from Joshua Speed. Again of course Abe wasn't "GAY" he just liked Josh to pump his dick between his "beautiful thighs" until he shot a load. Again just so " NOT GAY." Rinse. Repeat.
Log Cabin Republican fact checker.
Men who slept in a single bed with another man were having sex, stupid R16. Human nature hasn't changed since that day. Lincoln shared his little bed with Speed for FOUR YEARS. He was offered a bed he wouldn't have to share in another house and refused it.
Lincoln also made room in his government for that open over the top queen Walt Whitman.
Like Hamilton. and Washington was bi.
I remembered him from THE WIRE. I forgot that he was in BREAKING BAD, too. Thanks!
I recall Constabile as the bearded killer in the first two seasons of DAMAGES.
I found it interesting to see David Strathairn and John Hawkes together. Hawkes reminds me of a young Strathairn (though not as good-looking). Both of then have this idiosyncratic thing going.
R18, frontage? Maybe frottage would be sexier.
I meant r17.
Former pretty boy James Spader and current pretty boy Lee Pace made the movie for me. The whole scene at the House of Rep. was a bit of homoerotica if ask me.
More recently, I've wondered if James Spader is gay? What? Is he married?
I think Spader will be nominated and Pace was excellent and extremely good looking. I hope he works more.
I love John Hawkes in just about anything but The Sessions, I don't know if I could watch it.
What about the young man Lincoln sits with - on his bed - in the middle of the night?
"Do you need company, Mr. President?"
At 3 a.m.?
"Lincoln slept with men (documented evidence with three men and one of them as President in a 34 room mansion -- no need to share a bed here)"
Yes, he shared a bed with a man. But there's no proof or indication that he sucked the cocks or plowed the asses of any of them. And that's not my opinion, that's the view of Lincoln scholars who have have actually been asked the question "was Lincoln gay?" Attempts to portray Lincoln as a queen have no basis in fact; it's just wishful thinking.
I did not have sex with that man!
Abraham Jefferson Clinton Lincoln
It would make me feel good...him being gay.
You must realize that poor people did sleep wherever there was room for them, two men sleeping together was not strange for poor people. But two men in a bed in a 34 room mansion? Sorry that makes no sense at all. They wanted to sleep together and they probably wanted to sleep together because they were in love.
But in all seriousness, I think the scene to which R28 refers may--MAY--have been intended to suggest a more intimate relationship between Lincoln and a male colleague. Maybe a wink, wink to the right kind of viewer without making the whole film about it.
After all, look at how half of DL exploded in fake outrage over the new Bond villain's sexuality.
[quote]What about the young man Lincoln sits with - on his bed - in the middle of the night?
"Do you need company, Mr. President?"

Well, I thought that this was the implication of this scene, too. Given that Tony Kushner wrote the damn screenplay, I was really disappointed that this seemed to be the only gay reference in the entire movie.
Kushner did what he had to do to get an invite to Barry Diller's pool party.
I thought Buchanan was gay? Wasn't he the President who was single and had a niece act as his hostess? Buchanan preceeded Lincoln.
It was not at all unusual for women to share beds with women, and men with men in those days. It was even possible they did this with no thought given to sex. Possible.
It's possible it could snow in Florida in the middle of July, too.
"Men who slept in a single bed with another man were having sex, stupid"
Were you there? Were you there on every occasion where a man shared a bed with another man? Of course not. So shut the fuck up, stupid.
"But two men in a bed in a 34 room mansion? Sorry that makes no sense at all. They wanted to sleep together and they probably wanted to sleep together because they were in love."
I doubt that Lincoln was ever "in love" with another man. Maybe he just wanted a night away from his mad, shrewish wife: "I think I'll bunk with so-and-so tonight, Mary. We have a lot to talk about and it might take all night." He probably used that as an excuse to get away from her and get some peace. If he'd just said "I want to sleep in one of the other bedrooms" she might not have bought that. He need a better excuse that that to appease crazy Mary.
Theres no proof he had sex in bed, but theres no proof that he didnt.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
