William Gheen, head of the conservative, anti-"amnesty," anti-illegal immigration group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), spoke at a Greenville, S.C. Tea Party rally this weekend and called for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to "come out of that log cabin closet."\
According to Gheen, being gay is "a secret that Lindsey Graham has."\
Gheen told the crowd: "I hope this secret it isn''t being used as leverage over Senator Graham, so today I think Senator Graham, you need to come forward and tell people about your alternative lifestyle and your homosexuality."\
"Barney Frank is more honest and brave than you," Gheen continued, referring to the openly-gay Massachusetts congressman.
The freeper right does not like Graham and are hoping he will not be re-elected.
Lindsay has always used his drag name openly, isn''t that enough? He''a admitted he rarely has a camera in one hand while having a cock in the other. What''s he supposed do?
The Freepers are out to completely destroy the Republican Party. Love it!
In a bizarre way doesn''t this make the Tea Party more inclusive? \
The guy is a lunatic but the media has put them in charge of the asylum, so bring it on !!\
This is fascinating stuff.
Truer words were never spoken openhand.\
I would love to stand up for Lindsey here, on principle, but considering all the demagoguery and demonizing he is guilty of, I think I''ll just sit back and watch Karma in action.
I will bet you a million bucks that the tea-partiers tried to blackmail him, threatening to out him if he didn''t play ball.\
Could a Republican have the integrity to say "no"?
The teabaggers are mentally ill and the Republicans are snakes. Let them go at each other. I want more of this.
Looking at you, McHenry and Schock
First Ricky Martin and now Lindsay Graham! Who knew?
This is like watching two dogs in a fight. Let ''em rip and tear each other up!
McHenry is getting married, to a lovely girl I am sure. I know they will be a happy traditional couple, just like Larry Craig and his lovely wife.
Every once in a while Miss Lindsay Graham has been noted to be engaged in pleasant conversation with people of the Democrat persuasion, and for that he must be TAKEN DOWN!
David Drier? You next!!!!
Serve her right!
Miss McConnell and Miss Roberts, meeting Miss Rove for high tea
I wanna see a photo of mchenry''s beard!!
Won''t be nuthin'' left of this nut party except a small group of wacko straight white dudes. They are offending EVERYONE ELSE!!
R11, I didn''t hear that he was getting married. Well, well, well. I can just picture that poor beard trying to get the ring out of McH''s tiny, little fists.
I hope all of them get outed. All across the spectrum.
I think this is his fiance. She looks too smart to be a beard....
OMG. This absolutely made my day. I am loving this.
I think this is the second time in a few days that there have been calls for Graham to come clean. There was a story I read yesterday on Salon.com, and then today, again on Salon, the article said that Graham was "again" being "gay-baited."
R19, she is a beautiful woman. I''m sure that Lindsay is very jealous.
That''s McHenry''s fiance.
Graham has tried to redeem himself as a thoughtful, moderate-right guy in the years since, but his shameful, smug, hypocritical performance as one of the leaders of the "prosecution" during the Clinton impeachment travesty is what I will always remember about the douche.\
Even then there were rumors he was a closet case--and yet he helped his party try to bring down a president over lying about a blowjob.
Plus he''s head over heels in lurve with John McCain he can''t see straight when he''s near him (which is all the damned time).....
True, R25. Whenever I see footage of Capitol Hill on the news, I always seen Graham following along behind McCain.
I was looking for a photo of Lindsay Graham demonstrating gayface, but I quickly realized that it was like looking for a photo of Lindsay Lohan demonstrating fucked-up.\
This one will do.
R24, if you were one who lied about a blowjob to a federal grand jury, your ass would''ve gone to jail. Clinton got off easy.\
That said, Graham is a fucking piece of shit neocon who needs to be sent to jail, not back to the Senate. Hope this gets coverage and forces him out of the closet.
This shit must stop. Now.
Fantastic! So what will it be, Lin:\
I am a fortunate homosexual man?\
I am a gay American?\
I am a closeted, not exactly progressive but also not hopelessly reactionary Republican homo?
r28, I don''t think there have been many perjury prosecutions in federal court for lying about a blow job.\
He''s all man and he is a True American, you perverts!
Cheryl - I''ll vote for him heterosexually
[quote]That said, Graham is a fucking piece of shit neocon who needs to be sent to jail,\
To JAIL??? Because he has different political beliefs than you? Some of you people are just putrid.
Remember r33, it was the dems who set up those WWII internment camps. They''re also quite fond of "re-education camps" (sensitivity training) for PC violators.
Abraham Lincoln, Republican
The Salon article was very much critical of the gay-baiting, but I won''t be able to muster any sympathy for Graham.\
If we couldn''t out him on the left (by say, Mike Rogers), I don''t care if the nutjobs on the right take care of it.
Of course, habeas corpus ain''t worth shit much either.
Abraham Lincoln, Republican
And furthermore, in what UNIVERSE can Mitch McConnell be straight?!
I think there is something going on in the trio of Leiberman, McCain and Lindsey. I think they are fond of each other. Joe and Lindsey probably squabble over who is going to wipe John''s ass.
No, R33, but because as a Senate leader he, Bu$h Sr & Jr, Clinton and now Obama- aided and abetted by an equally supine and complicit Congress- have murdered hundreds of thousands if not millions of innocent people over the last 2 decades.\
Eclectic Anarchist, aka R28
It''s annoying that while a lot of minor urban periodicals have reported the story, I can''t find a single major newspaper with any mention of it at all.\
Except for The Guardian, in the UK.
I want to see this guy getting teabagged, preferably by Leo Giamani.
Whatever happened to Ronald Reagan''s eleventh commandment: " Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican." \
Are the Republicans (Tea Partiers and all) so desperate that they can''t even stop destroying one another?
Glenn Beck spent a great deal of his radio show today playing that guy and talking about Graham maybe being gay....
Are they doing the same to Crist, but are afraid to say why?
Crist is the star of "Outrage." I wonder how much Crist''s boyfriends got paid to leave Florida during the final days of his last campaign. It''s all the the movie.
Graham seems to be unfazed by this.
The George Rekers rentboy scandal embarrased "Family Research Council"\
So, I think we are going to see all these uber-conservative anti-gay groups outing people within their ranks that they know are gay. They don''t want to be surprised with another "Travel Assistant" scandal.\
And I think it''s a good thing. Every one of these outed guys has a chance to do the right thing and admit their evil actions and work for on behalf of their own rights...
r50, they seriously can''t/won''t do that because MOST of them ARE secretly gay.
I''m betting that Reid has quietly let be known that he will out any Republican who at the confirmation hearings asks Kagan if she''s gay.
Lindsay Graham and Mitch McConnell in "Arsenic and Old Lace"
Miss Lindsay Graham and Miss Charlie Crist would make a good couple, if Miss Crist is elected to the Senate.
Lindsay Graham is still in the military, he cannot come out.
Yes, and the fact that he is in the pocket of the fascist military NSA cunts makes him even more execrable.
R56, you know that this thread has been dead for three years, right?
The fact that he is still gay, and supports the NSA because they have evidence that he's gay makes this relevant.
If he turned on them, all they have to do is expose his homosexual dalliances.
Kinda the way Conyers and Pelosi Reid don't want their shit exposed.
DON'T FUCK WITH THE NSA!
He sides with Obama on the Snowden case and suddenly he's a darling of the left wing fascists.
Typical of useful idiots.
He would be perfect as Aunt Pittypat if they ever decided to redo Gone With The Wind.
Is he going to Southern Decadence?
This thread began in April 2010. They'll never drag this guy out of his closet. He's really got it locked up.
[quote]He sides with Obama on the Snowden case and suddenly he's a darling of the left wing fascists.
Really? Please do point us to all of these "left wing [sic] fascists," won't you? Because, see, I think they exist only in your fevered imagination, like much of what you write here.
Does he live alone?
Lindsey is a very strange, weird man. We'd prefer he not be gay.
[quote]Won't be nuthin' left of this nut party except a small group of wacko straight white dudes.
Yeah, that's right! STRAIGHT dudes! I have 7 kids so that means me! Straight dudes who are OBSESSED with predatory gay males! I'm straight!!!!
[quote]Really? Please do point us to all of these "left wing [sic] fascists," won't you? Because, see, I think they exist only in your fevered imagination, like much of what you write here.
The (sic) is placed after the error. Since "Left Wing Fascist" is a complete and true statement, your misplacement of (sic) exposes your ignorance.
Fascism is a left wing ideology, in that it is a parasitic relationship between government and big business at the expense of the bottom 99.9% while enriching the top 0.1% via government legislation.
[quote]The (sic) is placed after the error.
Yes, dear, I know, which is why I placed it where I did. What's hilarious is that you don't even know which error I was referring to!
[quote]Since "Left Wing Fascist" is a complete and true statement, your misplacement of (sic) exposes your ignorance.
ROFL.... Oh, the irony....
[quote]Fascism is a left wing ideology
No, dear, it's not. You see, out here in the real world, words have accepted definitions. You don't get to make shit up and then pretend that we have to take it seriously. If you want to play silly games, all you're going to get is richly deserved mockery.
Oh, and it hasn't escaped anyone's notice that you were not able to name a single "left wing [sic] fascist." Not a single one.
[quote]He sides with Obama on the Snowden case and suddenly he's a darling of the left wing fascists. Typical of useful idiots.
Yes, Graham is just like Obama- a useful idiot figurehead that has one purpose- keep the masses entertained so they don't look for the REAL villains.
He is evil, just like 99.9% of politicians, and deserves out contempt.
Obama, Clinton, Kerry, Bernanke- all "left wing fascists" by any definition of the word.
[quote]They don't want to be surprised with another "Travel Assistant" scandal
Actually, he claimed he was a "baggage handler".
[quote]Obama, Clinton, Kerry, Bernanke- all "left wing fascists" by any definition of the word.
Actually, out here in the real world, none of those people exhibit any characteristics of any so-called "left wing [sic] fascists," by any reasonable definition of the phrase.
Oh, and moron, what you wrote is: "He sides with Obama on the Snowden case and suddenly he's a darling of the left wing fascists."
Lindsay Graham is not the "darling of the left wing [sic] fascists," moron, which is why you can't name a single "left wing [sic] fascist" whom Graham is the darling of. As usual, you were making shit up.
"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...
