on all the u.s. news this week, satirically

some satire for you. political commentary a tad tongue in cheek. because, really, where else would your tongue be?

1. far more interesting than the gay marriage story is the lesbian marriage story.

5. hillary clinton gracefully unclenches her hold on the most exciting race for democratic presidential nominee in memory. from a fist to a high-five, clinton pivots to endorse obama. hillary fans assure the national press: “we don’t feel left out in the cold…”

One thought on “on all the u.s. news this week, satirically

  1. Aja says:

    GLAAD was on their game about the Cali gay marriage situation. They emailed the member list immediately with a very kind request that, basically, everyone not run out and be to ‘gay’ at their gay weddings. It’s clearly to present the most comfortable images for mainstream America; it’s gotten mixed reactions from the community.

    Secondly, please read Tim Wise’s hilarious take on the Clinton diehard Middle-America crowd: http://www.thefighting44s.com/archives/2008/06/08/open-letter-to-clinton-supporters-your-whiteness-is-showing/
