Josh Barro on Bill Maher

He's hot. What do we know about him? Gay?

by Anonymousreply 4709/15/2013

Yup. Gay Harvard Man. Conservative, but not one of the crazy ones.

by Anonymousreply 102/08/2013

While he was at Harvard, he was a staffer for then Governor Romney. He is quite hot to look at. He looks like Jeremy Scahill another hottie.

This week is a little boring. The scientist guy is a little obnoxious.

But gay conservatives at Harvard and across the nation see no contradiction—they believe that sexual orientation should not define political philosophy. “I always thought it was sort of odd that gay and lesbian people are perceived as being quite liberal,” says Joshua A. Barro ’05, a gay Republican who now works for a New York City bank. “I don’t think there’s any reason being gay should lead you to support bigger government and high taxes. These are issues that have nothing to do with being gay.”

He does/did like Nasty Pig on Facebook, so he's probably a kinky boy.

by Anonymousreply 602/08/2013

Hmmmmm - surprised that he failed to learn at harvard about the sexual/political orientation connections - heck, I learned about all that real clearly and real early on at the state universities in Kansas.

by Anonymousreply 702/08/2013

And yet you didn't learn much about grammar, did you, Kansas boy?

Adverbs modify adverbs, please.

by Anonymousreply 802/08/2013

R8, apparently can't see the forest for the adverbs.

[quote]they believe that sexual orientation should not define political philosophy.

It's all about values like greed, ambition, and need for acceptance trumping values like self worth, pride, and dignity. If you want to keep your dignity you define yourself as what conservatives call a damn socialist liberal.

by Anonymousreply 1002/08/2013

He looks like quite the piggy bottom.

The state of emergency is still in effect in Boston.

No one is supposed to be on the streets, except for authorized emergency personnel.

Over 100 have been reported dead and thousands are without heat and electricity.

[R8] With any luck you will get run over by a car today.

A dimwitted whore for money, like so many.

by Anonymousreply 1402/09/2013

He's got that trashy look just perfect for bareback and water sports porn.

by Anonymousreply 1502/09/2013

He's fugly.

by Anonymousreply 1602/09/2013

I agree, he's a fugly cunt.

by Anonymousreply 1702/09/2013

He's a fistpig. Milky Loads Jr.

by Anonymousreply 1802/09/2013

He's on 'Up With Chris Hayes' all the time.

by Anonymousreply 1902/09/2013

He has this piggish mouth breather expression on his face which may look great, sexy, and naughty in sexual situations, but in day to day life it looks kind of creepy and retarded.

But did like his argument that the White House deliberately released the picture of Obama shooting a rifle (or whatever the type of gun is called) in order to fanthe flames of those crazy right wing conspiracy loonies.

by Anonymousreply 2002/09/2013

I though he was hottish too, but at the end, Maher was bashing some republican policy and you could see from Josh's face that he was getting a little pissy and wanted to defend the repubs.

by Anonymousreply 2102/09/2013

You can tell by his haircut that he's into leather sex. Why are gay conservatives always into kinky sex?

by Anonymousreply 2202/09/2013

He reminds me of that Euro porn model Felix Barca.

by Anonymousreply 2302/09/2013

He looks great in profile but not so much straight on.

by Anonymousreply 2402/09/2013

He's on Steve Kornacki's show right now. Are they doing it? He and Andrew Sullivan have some weird beef... It could be a fight over who gets the biggest poz load.

I support R25 in going there.

guilt for being willfully ignorant and selfish.

Clean-shaved Josh Barro on All In with Chris Hayes 06/14/13.

Josh starts at 7:45.

10 years and twenty pounds lighter. His leather wrists restraint will need to be taken in. In MY mind.

He's wrong of course.

But that was what, seven or eight years ago? He's clearly realizing lately that the Republican party is fucking nuts, and has been attacking them quite a bit lately.

It's utterly stupid for ANYONE who is gay, regardless of political ideology, to vote for Republicans. I think he's waking up to that a bit.

by Anonymousreply 3006/15/2013

Wasn't his Father a Repuke? You know he has those republican Daddy issues!

by Anonymousreply 3109/07/2013

He's gay and out.

As far as his political leanings go, he reminds me of Silicon Valley libertarians circa '99 not a "get the gob'mint off my back" libertarian à la the Tea Party. He's actually pretty smart and the kind of conservative I can imagine having a productive policy conversation with ... the kind of conversation that gives rise to ideas such as cap-and-trade as an alternative to traditional regulation.

All of which is not to say that I still don't count anyone who votes republican as part of the problem. I'm just saying that Josh doesn't seem *all* bad.

[quote]Wasn't his Father a Repuke? You know he has those republican Daddy issues![/quote]

Wow! I just just discovered that his dad is Robert Barro (a bigwig in the field of economics), so doing something like questioning austerity must count as real hell raising for Josh.

Also, just remembered one of the reasons why I like him (even if I do disagree with his politics) - he took a stand against a nut-job opinion piece that John Derbyshire authored about "the talk" he gives his (white) kids about how they should be scared of black people and called for the National Review to fire him (see link below). I thought that was a pretty stand-up thing to do for a republican.

Grooming tips for Barro:

Josh Barro needs to trim his chest/neck hair. His neck hair shows growing out of his collar even when Josh has a buttoned shirt and wearing a tie. I'm surprised no one at MSNBC has told him that his hair is like ivy coming out of shirt collar.

by Anonymousreply 3409/07/2013

R34, I think it's hot that his hair does that.

by Anonymousreply 3509/07/2013

He seems to have a fondness for the sexy, swarthy, musclebear type.

by Anonymousreply 3609/07/2013

Joah Barro needs to leave his chest neck hair alone. His neck hair shows growing out of his collar when when Josh has a buttoned shirt and wearing a tie. I am surprised no one at MSNBC had told him how hot that it.

by Anonymousreply 3709/08/2013

Josh was indeed chunky a few years ago (see link). But he's definitely improved his appearance in the past few years. Good for him!

by Anonymousreply 3809/12/2013

[quote]Wow! I just just discovered that his dad is Robert Barro (a bigwig in the field of economics),

Yet another Conservative who was born on 3rd but thinks helping anyone else is socialism.

by Anonymousreply 3909/12/2013

R37. Josh needs to trim his neck hair that grows out over his collar even wearing a tie and bottoned-collared shirt.

His chest/neck hair will not change simply by trimming a half inch that pops out over his collar. He'll still be the cub/bear that turns you on, but the neck hair over the tie and shirt looks creepy and unkempt.

by Anonymousreply 4009/12/2013

He was MUCH sexier with the beard. Without it, he doesn't stand out quite so much. Still, I'd suck the socks off him in a minute.

by Anonymousreply 4109/12/2013

he is not even attractive without the beard. plus, that whole conservative thing smells of self-loathing, so i doubt i'd touch him even if he had a 10 foot pole.

by Anonymousreply 4209/12/2013

A fat, fugly right-wing cunt. Of course he'd be a DL sex symbol.

by Anonymousreply 4309/12/2013

DEFINITELY needs the facial hair and a strong key light...he's one of those guys that has well-proportioned features,a strong jaw,a straight nose and masculine head shape yet is STILL not particularly good-looking.

by Anonymousreply 4409/12/2013

Why, he was a little chubby tubby.

by Anonymousreply 4509/12/2013

His devotion to the same party that views queers as "less than" really turns me off to him. He's really just average looking. I think hetero Chris Hayes is way cuter, and I agree with him on most issues.

by Anonymousreply 4609/15/2013

I think Steve Kornaki is cute.
