Dumbfuckery du Jour

I just watched a documentary called Fabulous! The Story of Queer Cinema.  And yes, it was fabulous.  It introduced me to a world I didn't know existed, which is what every good documentary should do.

I think it needs to be screened for certain members of the Senate, combined with some of the movies highlighted within it, because they're obviously completely ignorant fucktards when it comes to gay people:
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) spoke to about 300 constituents earlier this week at Dixie State University. His remarks included some advice for conservatives. (thanks to reader J.S.)
He said the Republicans need to organize and pull together just as unions, environmentalists, personal injury lawyers and gay rights activists do for Democrat candidates.
"Gays and lesbians don't pay tithing, their religion is politics," said Hatch.
I'd love to know what that means, exactly. Gay people can't be religious? The LGBT community necessarily cares more politics than the rest of the country?

For a politician with a habit of making bizarre remarks, Hatch's comment was even dumber than usual.

Well, with the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell being nigh, and teh gayz getting horrible things like benefits, not to mention Americans in general getting used to the idea that same-sex sexuality isn't going to bring about the end of civilization, right-wing anti-gay fucktards are probably finding their brains overheating, which is causing an exponential increase in teh stoopid.  Add to that the fact that so many passionate homophobes seem to be so because they're busy denying their own sexuality, and teh stoopid burns just that much hotter.

How hot is teh stoopid getting?  Observe Bill O on the verge of spontaneous combustion:
Last night, culture warrior Bill O’Reilly ran a segment about a new gay-themed McDonald’s ad airing in France. After previewing the ad, which shows a young man talking on the phone with his boyfriend, O’Reilly asked Fox News anchor Jane Skinner, “does that make you want to buy a Big Mac? … Because, you know, straight people are going to watch that, too.” When Skinner explained that the ad was part of a campaign showcasing people from different walks of life, O’Reilly asked if they would cut an ad featuring Al-Qaeda and insisted that the ad would never run in America.
He guarantees it, even.  We need to pin him down on a dollar amount now and get that guarantee in writing so that we may enjoy making the poor douchebag pay up when Mickey Ds decides they're not clogging enough gay arteries in the United States.  Even if we're out of the recession by then, the money'll still be nice.

We can even use some of it to put on a queer film festival for those right wing culture warriors who so desperately need the education.  They'll either come out enlightened, or their brains will explode.  Either way, it's good for the rest of us.
