I Didn't Say It ...

Cameron Hawthorn, up-and-coming country singer, debuted a new video, “Dancing in the Living Room”, a tribute to love and Hawthorn’s coming out:

“I remember always thinking how special it was to dance freely with my boyfriend in the living room of our apartment—being gay, it’s not as easy to dance as a couple in public together as it is for a straight couple. I wanted to express how special that moment is for a couple, when it’s just the two of you in the privacy of your own four walls.”

It’s sweet, and he’s hot.
So, welcome out Cameron, and please accept as our gift, from HOMO HQ, the Official Coming Out Toaster Oven—perfect for an after-dance snack—and a copy of The Gay Agenda.
Welcome out.
Beto O’Rourke, on running for president:

“You can probably tell that I want to run. I do. I think I’d be good at it. This is the fight of our lives, not the fight-of-my-political-life kind of crap. But, like, this is the fight of our lives as Americans, and as humans, I’d argue. I want to be in it. Man, I’m just born to be in it, and want to do everything I humanly can for this country at this moment.”

You can’t deny his passion, and you can’t deny his charisma, but I don’t think this is his year.
Pete Davidson, responding to people who are somehow upset that his new girlfriend, Kate Beckinsale, is twenty years older than he:

“Apparently people have a crazy fascination with our age difference. It doesn’t really bother us, but then again, I’m new to this. So, if you have questions about a relationship with a big age difference, just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Disick, Dane Cook, Derek Jeter, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn and whoever the president of France is. Mel Gibson, Billy Joel, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy, Kelsey Grammer, Larry King, Larry King, Larry King, Rod Stewart and Donald _____.”

True dat. If the man is decades older than the woman, people say almost nothing. But a younger man and an older woman?
Quelle horror.
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana and future presidential candidate, slamming Michael Elizabeth Pence for supporting _____:

"How could he allow himself to become the cheerleader of the porn star presidency? Is it that he stopped believing in scripture when he started believing in Donald _____? I don’t know. [How] could he get on board with this presidency? My understanding of scripture it’s about protecting the stranger and the prisoner and the poor person and that idea. That’s what I get in the gospel when I’m in church. And his has a lot more to do with sexuality and a certain view of rectitude. And we saw that in Indiana when he really embarrassed our state with policies that both Democrats and Republicans, in not just the political world but the business community, stepped up and said, ‘Hey, you’re making us look like a backwards place in just the moment we’re trying to advance.’ And unfortunately, he now has a national stage for some of those fanatical social ideas.” 

I like Pete. Pete speaks his mind. I don’t think Pete has a shot at being president in 2020, but maybe sometime. But, think on this …
What if whomever gets the Democratic nomination chooses Pete to be their Veep, and then Pete will be able to debate Michael Elizabeth Pence … and he will mop the floor with him.
That I’d love to see.
John Oliver, on _____’s visit with tornado victims in Alabama, where he signed Bibles:

“I am not remotely surprised that _____ did that. I’m just slightly confused as to why anyone would want him to, because seeing _____’s autograph on a Bible should be like seeing a picture of your own Mom on the cover of a Penthouse magazine. It should render the whole thing useless, and if you keep reading after discovering it, you’re going directly to Hell. [But] look, some people there clearly wanted his autograph and presidents have signed Bibles before, but Trump didn’t just sign the book. He signed the cover! And it is weird to sign the cover of any book, and weirder still to sign the cover of the Bible with [that] signature. Because I don’t care what your name is, that is not how you sign something. That’s how you test if your Sharpie still has ink left before you sign something.”

Also of note is that_____’s signature looks like a row of Klan hats, which is quite telling.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, on her detractors:

“I find it revealing when people mock where I came from, saying they’re going to ‘send me back to waitressing,’ as if that is embarrassing or shameful. It’s as though they think being a member of Congress makes you intrinsically ‘better’ than a waitress. But our job is to serve, not rule.”

Sad that most in Congress don’t realize they are the servers and we are the served.
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, on impeaching _____:

“I’m not for impeachment. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Keep that in mind, until, and unless, the GOP acquires a spine, impeachment will be a waste of time and will divide this country further.
Bets bet? Vote that fat lying adulterous, traitorous, conman, misogynistic, racist, anti-Semitic, white supremacist, homophobic ass out of office.

Oooo! I like the idea of Buttigieg as VP
candidate and debating the current VP.

Deedles said...

Oooh, look at those gay cuties! Such a waste (ducks head, and runs)! Don't mind me. I'm having a feisty Friday, yippee!

Helen Lashbrook said...

As long as two people are happy together what does age, religion, sex or colour matter? That should be between the happy couple and no-one else. Perhaps those that object should concentrate more on their own lives than poking sticks or throwing stones at other people?

As for Buttigieg and O'Rourke; I think both of them should get more experience before eying the job as head of the world's biggest (for now) economy. Figure out what you are going to do about China before jumping into the shark-infested waters.

Pete or Beto would make fantastic Vice Presidents. Really.
Alexandria is a smart cookie. Nancy is dog walking Cheeto and I couldn’t be happier.
John Oliver is right. And you know one of those bibles ended up on eBay and some idiot payed three hundred bucks for it.

Some good quotations today!

Sadie J said...

A good collection today. I'm not a country music fan, but I'll have to give Cameron a listen.

anne marie in philly said...

pete AND beto in the same post? (swoons)

Dave R said...

Nancy's 6 last words say it all: He's just not worth it." I'll bet that gave him the hot shits.

You can be those big haired country girls will never listen to Cameron, they like songs about breaking up, and divorce, and getting cheated on cause those songs are about 'real life.'

You;re right, it's not Beto's year.
