This came across my Facebook feed today, reposted by George Takei.
” I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn’t born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialogue.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I paid attention.
Now, I’m being called on to be tolerant.

In the latest round of the saga of poor Carrie Prejean, a sex tape of the former Miss California USA has been introduced into the plot. As you’ll recall, Miss Prejean became a darling of the right wing after coming in second in the Miss USA contest. Her response to a question on same-sex marriage, not noted for it’s intelligence or delivery, even if a dearly held belief of Miss Prejean’s, became instant fodder for the judge who asked the question, on-line gossip Perez Hilton. Quickly taken up by the religious right, who echoed her claims that she lost the Miss USA crown due to her “moral” stand on same-sex marriage, her cause became a national sensation, portrayed as an attack on her personal “family values” beliefs. The latest chapter in this never-ending saga now includes reports of a video of Miss Prejean in a solo performance of a sexual nature.
