The other night Carlos and I were watching the Critic’s Choice Awards because, well, we’re gay and we love awards shows ... okay, because I love awards shows, and Ryan Reynolds .... lord is he hot and funny and hot .... won an award for Deadpool. As he was accepting the award, this was the conversation in our house ...
Carlos: Who is that?
Bob: Ryan Reynolds. God he’s hot.
Carlos: Is he Debbie Reynolds' son?
Bob: No. What? No! Debbie Reynolds is her stage name, so if he was her son he’d have a different last name; like, Carrie Fisher is Debbie Reynolds’ daughter but she has the last name of her father, Eddie Fisher.
Carlos: I just thought since they had the same last name ...
Bob: Well, Reynolds Wrap is her cousin.
Carlos: I don't even know who that is.
Bob: It’s aluminum foil?
Carlos: I thought you meant Reynolds Rap, like a rapper.
‘Memba when _____ blasted Ted Cruz for his associations with Wall Street and Goldman Sachs?
‘Memba when _____ blasted Hillary Clinton for her associations with Wall Street and Goldman Sachs?
Well, _____ just named Goldman Sachs President and COO Gary Cohn to be his National Economic Council Director.
Drain the Swamp, my ass.
I don’t usually go for the Beefy Mens, but ... John Cena. Wrestler, and now actor, and, well, he’s kinda funny. Plus, in Trainwreck he dared to give us a glimpse, on more than one occasion, of his glorious backside.
So, beefy hot and funny ... a winning combination but ...
He also appeared in this PSA so ...
Beefy hot and funny and smart and compassionate ....
I really would love to scale that man. Just sayin’.
Poor Rudy ... he shoved his head far up the _____ rump to get the Secretary of State position and as soon as it became clear that he wasn’t gonna get it, he started saying he turned the job down.
Sit down, Rudy, no one believes a word that comes out of your mouth.
Oh, and since you won’t be _____’s right-hand ass-kisser, go away.
So North Carolina’s governor, Pat McCrory—who was one of those rabid proponents of the so-called “bathroom bills” stoking the fires of hate in his state with ludicrous statements about men in dresses in the ladies room raping children—was finally flushed last week, proving that resistance works, hate does not win, transphobia is unacceptable.
And that’s all well and good, but what makes it great is that, in light of McCrory being flushed out of office, Kentucky's Republican Governor Matt Bevin has announced that he will not use the state's new GOP majority to push through a bill restricting transgender bathroom use even though earlier this year, Bevin joined a lawsuit challenging the federal government's directive that public schools allow students to use the bathroom of their gender identity.
Matty did the flip-flop, saying Kentucky has no need to pass a law restricting transgender bathroom use because it is not an issue here. Or maybe it’s not an issue worth getting yourself flushed out of office?
In another step towards GOP dictatorship, the Republican Party has given control of state-run radio to President-elect _____.
An amendment quietly inserted into the annual National Defense Authorization Act by Republican House leaders would abolish the broadcasting board and place Voice of America [VOA], Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty [RFE/RL] and other international news and information operations under the direct control of a chief executive appointed by the president.
President _____ is really angling to be Putin’s bitch.
Sitting at one of our local bars the other night after work, enjoying a glass of wine, I overheard the conversation of two Republican gentlemen sitting nearby. A news channel on one of the televisions had a report on climate change and this is what the two men were saying ....
Gentleman #1: I don’t believe in global warming. It’s all just a myth. I mean, look how cold it’s been lately.
Gentleman #2: Yeah, it’s all fake, but I do think there’s some truth to this climate change stuff.
I wanted to shout ‘Global warming and climate change are the same thing you two asshats’ but, well, I had a second glass of wine instead.
Still, with fools like these men calling themselves Republicans, how did they manage to get _____ elected?
