Oh no he didn’t! … Oh, wait, he actually didn’t
On today’s table: Watching Splice, which looks interesting, and reading a brand new book. Oh, I love slow weekends.
Spartanburg, South Carolina Mayor Junie White marked yesterday, June 19, as LGBT Pride Day. Councilwoman Linda Dogan responds by launching into one of the most astonishingly revolting anti-gay rants you’ll have ever heard; not so much for being explicit (it’s not), but for its breathtaking amounts of stupidity, arrogance and hypocrisy.

Bad to worse: Faux News and Fox Nation website both falsely claim that President Obama has given a huge slot of land over to Mexico [pictured].
