HomoQuotable – Brian Paddick

“One right-wing newspaper is, I think, delving away hoping he is going to turn out to be a 19-year-old rent boy.

NY Post Endorses Obama

NYC’s conservative tabloid, the NY Post, has endorsed Barack Obama for the Democratic primary.

HomoQuotable – Bruce Bawer

“Not very long ago, Oslo was an icy Shangri-la of Scandinavian self-discipline, governability, and respect for the law. But in recent years, there have been grim changes, including a rise in gay-bashings. The summer of 2006 saw an unprecedented wave of them.

Daily Grumble

OK, the TV ads for U.S. Window Factory have got to stop. The manic hairpieced Australian pitchman vowing to move to America just so he can save on windows was bad enough. But their female shillster with her Queens accent, ratty hair extensions, eyebrows like McDonald’s arches, and lips blown up so fat they’d embarrass Amanda Lepore? Make. It. Stop.
