"Haul Ass, Mike!"

Watch as President Trump keeps Vice President Pence on a string, which stretches all the way from Pennsylvania to Indiana.

Give Me That Old-Time Dissonance

At the Values Voter Summit, the annual gathering of Christian conservatives at which President Trump spoke today, attendees received a swag bag that included a flier promoting a book called "Hazards of Homosexuality."

Among other things, the book claims homosexuality is a mental disorder.  It seems to me a mental disorder is when you succeed in convincing yourself that a man who's broken most of the Ten Commandments is suddenly an upstanding Christian leader.

Leader Theater

This morning I realized that I start every day hoping to hear that Donald Trump has resigned. I also realized that when that day comes, I'll have to write something like this:  The king is dead. But now we're stuck with Pope Pence.

Terrible News Friday, Regroup Saturday

From The Associated Press today:  "In a one-two punch elating religious conservatives, President Donald Trump’s administration is allowing more employers to opt out of no-cost birth control for workers and issuing sweeping religious-freedom directions that could override many anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people and others."

Well. My wife and I were already signed up to attend a fundraiser tomorrow evening for a women's rights organization here in Seattle. Legal Voice has a distinguished track record of fighting for reproductive and LGBT rights. After today's announcements out of the other Washington, I expect the speeches tomorrow to be impassioned, the crowd outraged and the booze barely adequate.

Today Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Justice Department asked a federal court to dismiss a legal challenge to President Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the military.  Also today, Sessions rolled back Justice Department policy that protected transgender workers from discrimination.

Sessions may look like Ernie the Keebler Elf, but today he turned into Punchy, spokes-batterer for Hawaiian Punch, as he laid out transgender folks with a joyful one-two punch.

Germany 23rd Country to Legalize Gay Marriage

On Sunday Karl Kreile and Bodo Mende became the first same-sex couple to marry in Germany.  Because I'm half German, I'd like to say to the Berlin couple, "Ich gratuliere!"  If you can't guess, that means, "I bet you're registered at Amazon."

'Bama Bros.

We know how homophobic Attorney General Jeff Sessions is.  Roy Moore, who this week won the Republican primary runoff in Alabama for Sessions' Senate seat, is even more homophobic.

What is it with these 'Bama Lama Ding Dongs?

Frog in Your Throat?

Infamous conspiracy theorist Alex Jones likes to say that the government puts chemicals in the water to turn people gay, and that gay frogs are the proof.  Last week on his "InfoWars" show Jones said it's becoming clear "that the majority of frogs in most areas of the United States are now gay."

That's why, on any Friday evening, you'll see female frogs gathered at their local lily pad, absorbing martinis through their skin and whining that all the good ones are gay.
