I Didn't Say It ...

Ted Cruz, on this election and the Baby Jeebus:

“Nothing is more important in the next 18 months than that the body of Christ rise up and that Christians stand up, that pastors stand up and lead. In this last election, 54 million evangelical Christians stayed home. If we can simply bring Christians to the polls – is it any wonder we have the government we have – we have the leaders we have if believers stay home and leave electing our leaders to unbelievers. We get exactly what we deserve and nothing is more important that having people of faith stand up and just vote our values, vote biblical values and that’s how we turn the country around.”

Vote our values?
Like sending out a fraudulent mailer trying to get votes through fear tactics?
Like calling people, evangelicals, and lying to them about Ben Carson leaving the race and urging them to vote Ted Cruz?
Like taking money from an openly gay man—albeit a Homocon—while promising to roll back same-sex marriage and LGBT rights?
The values of lying and pandering? Those values?
James David Manning, the Harlem Hate Pastor, on the idea that the Ali Forney Center might buy his bankrupt church:

“This is the lord’s house! This ain’t no damn bathhouse! It ain’t no fag house! And before you can ever own this property – hook or crook – men who are fags with testicles will be carrying babies in their testicles and giving birth to them through their anus. That’s how impossible it is for you to get this house. When you start carrying a baby in your bags and birthing that baby through your ass, THEN you can own this house! But until I see you pull a baby out your ass, you ain’t gonna pull this church out from underneath us. And boom shaka-laka goes right there! And all you fags can go to hell! I’m James David Manning, everybody. I’m the LORD’S servant!” 

Yes, he says he’s a man of God.
God, however, begs to differ.
Carl Siciliano, Ali Forney Center founder, in response:

“I imagine we are going to hear a lot of ranting and raving from Rev. Manning until the auction. And he has good cause to be ranting. The Ali Forney Center has been overwhelmed with support since we announced our bid to site a housing program for LGBT youth,  thus far raising $130K, well over $30K a day, in our quest to win his foreclosed building at auction. I have no interest in birthing babies, only in providing safety for New York City’s homeless LGBT youth.”

Out of the ashes of hate, perhaps something good can come.
Plus, it’s fun to see Manning go even more nuts … I never thought that was possible.
Kato Kaelin, on his part in American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson :

“I have often said that the media made me out to be a bigger player in this drama than I ever was, and American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson couldn’t pass up on that either. Whether it be for comedic relief or getting the most bang out their buck for that god-awful wig, (anyone remember Dana Carvey playing Garth from Wayne’s World?) there’s too much Kato Kaelin in this series — even for Kato Kaelin’s taste!”

You were, and still are, a huge embarrassment, and a hypocrite, since you are live-Tweeting each episode and giving reviews to the Daily Mail.
You should take your own advice and sit down.
Donald [t]Rump, on whether or not a [t]Rump presidency would mean more forward motion on equality for the LGBT community:

“Well, you can. And look, again, we’re going to bring people together, and that’s your thing and other people have their thing. We have to bring all people together and if we don’t we’re not going to have a country anymore. It’s gonna be a total mess. It’s a mess right now, it’s gonna be worse…I’m gonna bring people together.”

Funny, because just the other day he said he’d consider appointing justices to the Supreme Court who would vote to overturn marriage equality.
Doesn’t sound like forward motion at all; it sounds like [t]Rump is a lying, pandering, playing to the crows GOP asshat.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, on her real beauty:

“You don’t have to be a beauty queen to be an actress. The roles that are coming my way are different and more interesting. But I’m not anti-plastic surgery at all. Contrary to public opinion, I have not been under the knife…yet, is what I say! If I feel like it, I’m going to go ahead and do it! If (surgery) makes you feel better, who am I to tell someone that it’s wrong?”

Sure, maybe she has had any surgeries, but clearly this woman never met an injectible  or a filler that she didn’t love.

T. Cruz (not to be confused with one T. Cruise) plus the anally-fixated Manning - plus Trump? - probably. If the the end of the world is coming, this 'Holy Trinity' are surely the portents - so Gawd help us all!

Surreal moment from the OJ trial. I was working at the bookfair when the verdict came in and the office announced it over the intercom. First, and I expect, last time something like that ever happened.

Manning is a potty-mouth. Not enough soap in the world to wash that one out!

kato looks like he just cut the stinky cheese there. or had an orgasm.

I cannot wait to see manning lose his shit in court and get thrown in jail!

I don't know that I'd call Michael Douglas an 'injectable or filler', but I'm not sure that is 'love' either.

James Manning sounds insane

Er, is Ted Cruz saying that Jesus will rise from the dead within 18 months? Sounds like the rapture to me; Michelle Bachman will be over the moon!
