Tony Perkins Has The USS Harvey Milk Sadz

A few days ago we learned that the US Navy will name a new ship after Harvey Milk. Last night hate group leader Tony Perkins issued a wailing press release which concludes with a call for his followers to deluge Congress with complaints. Here’s the full thing:

While the rest of the world was focused on the terrorist attacks in France, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus was busy putting another politically correct stamp on the military. On July 14, outlets are now reporting, the political appointee (and one of the staunchest activists for special LGBT privileges) inked his name to a notice that he planned on naming a new ship in honor of the late gay icon and San Francisco politician Harvey Milk. The news should be astounding to anyone familiar with Milk and his less-than-honorable life story. Although he served briefly in the Navy, nothing he did merits the kind of tribute Mabus is giving him.

As FRC’s Peter Sprigg said when Milk was awarded a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom, “Milk is famous only for winning one election, being murdered — and having sex with men.” Now, the Navy seems intent on following in the administration’s ridiculous footsteps and bestowing a great honor on someone primarily on the basis of his sex life. While the LGBT community has long idolized Milk for his decision to live openly, his Navy career is hardly the stuff of legend.

In fact, one of the defining biographies on the man (written by a self-described “gay journalist”) insists that Harvey “continued to engage in homosexual conduct while serving in the U.S. Navy” against the law. According to Peter, author Randy Shilts reports that Milk, who had his own apartment off base, would pick up hitchhiking sailors by offering them a bed to sleep in. What he didn’t tell them is that it was his bed. “The guests often would not know that Milk’s apartment had only one bed until they walked in the door.”

“Milk later exploited his time in the Navy during his political career,” Peter explains, “by lying about it, claiming falsely that he had received a dishonorable discharge for his homosexuality. Milk ‘knew the story would make good copy,’ according to Shilts. ‘Maybe people will read it, feel sorry for me and then vote for me,’ Milk told one campaign manager.”

A life marred by promotion of illegal drug use, sexual exploits, and lies doesn’t deserve one of the greatest military distinctions — especially not with so many genuine heroes to choose from. “Since Harvey Milk died from an assassin’s bullet,” Peter pointed out, “over a quarter million American men have died of AIDS, which they contracted because they had sex with other men. [It’s madness] that someone whose only claim to fame is that they promoted such deadly behavior should be honored…”

If you’re as disturbed by Mabus’s plans as we are, bring this up to your House and Senate leaders while they’re home campaigning and hosting townhalls. Let them know that the Navy’s idea is an outrageous one when there are so many other deserving men and women, whose courage mattered — not in the bedroom — but on the battlefield.

    Tony Perkins is the zoo monkey that throws its feces at passers by.

  • Mark

    Gees Tony. Comparatively speaking, Milk scored a battle ship. You?? Not even a milk carton?

    So, uh, who’s life was “less-than-honorable”?

    • Rebecca Gardner

      Actually, I think it would be lovely to see Tony on a milk carton. πŸ˜‰

      • Mark

        I believe he is on occasion. Just slam the carton down hard on a cockroach…then look at the bottom…..there he is!

        • Rebecca Gardner

          That’s truly insulting to cockroaches everywhere. LOL.

      • Duh-David

        No matter how nicely you ask, I am not wiping my butt with a milk carton.

      • RobynWatts

        As long as they are both in the garbage with a way-past expiration date stamp.

    • Oh’behr

      Hmm, if I were younger and had lots of friends who drank milk out of paper cartons, we could do a USS Perkins and probably watch it go bust on the Aquatennial’s Milk Carton Boat race. I don’t even know if they have it anymore. Used to be fun to see what would float. Hmm, speaking of floating, I wonder if Tony would float or swim, like in the 1600s witch’s trials. Hee hee. Here Tony. Quack or not to Quack. Is he a witch or not a witch, that is the question.

      • Acronym Jim

        I’m sure he can float. Perkins appears to be Pennywise out of his clown drag. They all float down there in the sewers.

        • Jim Foy

          Shit floats …

    • chris james

      I’m sure if Tony complains enough that the Navy will name a garbage scow after him.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      And who is going to be remembered 50-100 years from now? Not you, Tonette.

  • Karl Dubhe

    So, I take it Tony Perkins won all of the military medals he was eligible for when he served in the military, right?

  • Oikos
    • Larry in Oklahoma

      It should read “levee.” πŸ™‚

      • Oh’behr

        That’s true, if the Levy was dry, Bristol wouldn’t been in the news. Ugh. Bad one. I know.

        • Larry in Oklahoma

          Oh that is a great one. Can I use that one? Please? πŸ˜€

      • Robincho

        To see “levy” misused is so taxing…

        • RoFaWh

          You should be deeply ashamed of coming out with a pun that bad. And in public too!

          What did you say your mother’s phone number is? I want to complain!

        • Acronym Jim

          True. It annoys me all the way down to my last pair of genes.

        • BlueberriesForMe

          I’ve spoken to the IRS. This year, you get an extra special deduction.

  • Christopher

    “Although he served briefly in the Navy, nothing he did merits the kind of tribute Mabus is giving him.”

    Fuck you PerKKKins! Harvey did more meaningful shit on a Tuesday, then you’ve done in your entire existence!

  • Philly Mike

    Sounds as if Perkins wanted a life of man sex and illegal drugs and now is upset he did not have one.

    • Charles Almon

      That we know of.

  • Today is a day that ends with “Y”, so of course this pathetic dolt is pissed about something.

    • Herald

      pissed and lying

  • Rebecca Gardner

    How dare he! Harvey Milk did more good for the world, for people, for his community than Tony PerKKKins could do in 100 of his lifetimes.

    Just go away Tony, nobody is buying what you’re selling anymore.

    • KCMC

      jealous longing. Big ship, seaman.

      • Kruhn

        Well hello to you too Commander sir! Permission to service you, sir!

        • KCMC

          permission to enter, crewman.
          gently, yet firmly.

  • Oikos

    ..

    • anonymous cat

      I can only muster up a quarter of an F to give to Tony at this point.

    He is just jealous that Harvey Milk did more to advance his country and will get more recognition for his last year of life than he will for his pathetic 53 years on this Earth P:

  • bkmn

    Not one word from Tony about Rev. Barber calling out all the Xtain frauds at the DNC Convention. I’m shocked.

  • Reginald Thorkinson

    Mat Barber’s WND article is much worse, and the comments on it are astounding.

  • Hue-Man

      YES, You can sail the seven seas <3 !

    I’m just saying, Tony clearly thinks about Harvey’s sex life….. a lot.

      “You have sacrificed nothing.”

      I think we need to use that line every time one of these assholes speaks.

      • Snarkaholic

        B-b-but that’s NOT true! Don’t forget those thousands of hours he sacrificed, watching gay porn and hanging around bath house back doors (interpret that however you like)…all in the name of research!!!

        • RoFaWh

          And what about all that time he’s spent on his knees praying?

          • olandp

            Not to mention all those hours typing out money begs…

          • Snarkaholic

            …and preying!

        • abel

          Actually, that was Porno Pete, from which we’ve heard nothing in a long, long time. He was the one obsessed with “assless chaps” and the chaps wearing them. I wish we had some “dirt” on Miss Tonette, but at this point it’s all conjecture. Of course, he remains a cross between a leech and a cockroach in any case.

        • BudClark

          …and the fortune Porno Pete spent on his leather kit so he could “pass” when he spied on the Castro Street, Folsom Street, and Dore Alley Fairs in San FranCrisco and the Stonewall Inn Festival.

          If David Duke wins the Louisiana Senate seat, what will it be like to have a refined Southern “lady” as his hostess/mistress? I wonder if he looks good in blue?

      Perhaps his pride and humanity, if he ever had them.

      • Zeldacat

        That’s an awfully large assumption, I have to say. I admire your optimism.

    • DaveMiller135

      To be fair, Tony served in the Marines,

      • And to be further fair, like everyone else who served in the Marines he collected a monthly check for doing so.

        • DaveMiller135

          I just mean, in the area of those who have served or sacrificed, Tony is not as much of a waste of time as certain billionaires, whose “bad” feet kept them from any such service.

    • Paula

      Yes, he has!!! With the donations down this year he could only afford the Lexus and not the Mercedes. That is so unfair!!!! /s

      I don’t know, sounds like a money beg to me.

  • marshlc

    As I understand it, the John Lewis class of ships are all to be named for civil rights leaders.

    Since Tony does not recognize the concept of civil rights, it’s no wonder that he would think that Harvey Milk did nothing but win one election, sleep with men, oh, and get murdered. I strongly suspect Tony doesn’t think John Lewis deserves any honours, either.

    • Marides48

      Tonette is frustrated because he can’t find a man to sleep with. Perhaps he has less money$ to spend on that now?

    • Steverino

      You know he would like to smear MLK, Jr. similarly, if he could get away with it: “a serial adulterer and communist sympathizer famous only for a few good speeches and getting shot.”

  • Took him long enough.

    Somehow, I doubt that Mabus was personally involved in this. And I seem to recall reading that this class of vessels are named for civil rights leaders.

    And unlike Perkins, most people, including people in the armed forces, are capable of multi-tasking.

    • Gustav2

      Yes, the class is named for civil rights leaders, but you have to remember we don’t have any civil rights.

      Somewhere I read in a believable source that first aid for depression is to have sex. And plenty of it. It’s no exaggeration to say that good mental health depends on having a good sex life, among other things.

    My feelings:

  • You lost another one douche-bag. Now, Tony Perkins,
    it’s time to turn to your sucker list of reliable morons
    to raise money for you next fight against POnography.

    Since your suckers never learn that should keep you
    in business for the next four or five years

    • Gustav2

      They should start with Utah and Mississippi.

  • Jude Newton

    “nothing he did”

  • Jesus Was a Slut

    What Tony can’t bring himself to acknowledge is the considerable historical record that Jesus was a long-haired, dress-wearing, fudge-packing, cum-sucking, pansexual, versatile/power bottom with a daddy complex, who shared lodging with 12 guys, liked to refer to himself as a ‘fisher of men’ with a sly wink, and died in S&M play with Roman soldiers gone bad. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of that.

    • Poon Peen

      “Not that there’s anything wrong with any of that.”

      Indeed not. Sounds like my kind of guy, in fact. I think Christianity might even begin to see a resurgence if so-called believers would place greater emphasis on highlighting Jesus’ extensively documented and diverse sexual experiences.

      Instead, religious leaders like Tony Perkins try to control and limit the sex lives of believers and non-believers alike, all the while hypocritically fucking women, children, men and sheep. They actually lie and suggest that Jesus was an asexual virgin, when the historical record is clear that Jeeebie enjoyed both the poon and the peen, beginning at an early age with temple elders, and continuing throughout his brief life. And the song “Jesus Loves the Little Children” ain’t fer nothin’.

    • JDS

      You mean this?

      • Jesus Was a Slut

        Didn’t you know? No, this is not what gets taught in “Sunday School”. You actually have to be an ancient languages scholar with access to original texts. But it’s there, if you know where to look, and get the opportunity.

    It’s just a ship, Tony. It’s not like they are renaming the QE2 or something else. I’m not putting down the ship or the ceremony but Tony’s acting like it’s a big sinful crime. Here’s the difference Tony should realize that Harvey Milk was important enough to get a stamp commissioned after him and now a ship is about to be. Neither of those accomplishments are going to happen for Tony!

  • Oh’behr

    Hmm, Tony is sadz that no ship will be named after him as the navy wouldn’t do the USS KKK.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      “The USS Tonette”.

        Answer: a truly crazy fraction of “straight” men are secretly desperate for cock and anal dilation.

  • Bad Tom

    Actually, Tony, Harvey Milk was famous for being an advocate for Gay Rights, for which he was murdered. Which makes him an authentic martyr.

    Exactly NONE of your group, Tony has paid the ultimate price for their beliefs, not a single one. Not one cake baker, not one photographer, not one wedding venue provider, has been murdered for their vicious, anti-human actions (not beliefs.) A few have even gotten rich from GoFundiMe scams.

    If anyone were to examine your life, Tony, we’d find rather a lot of sordid things. Among them a great pile of dead gay kids that you and your garbage have murdered. You know, Tony, I wish someday someone decides you should have that bright light shown on your life. Then your capacity for ugliness would be greatly diminished.

    • Acronym Jim

      “GoFundiMe”

      I don’t know if that was intentional or not, but I’m totally stealing it.

        Intentional, and please do!

    • abel

      If I won a nice big lottery jackpot, I would hire people to dig up the dirt on this monster. So little is known about Miss Tonette, and you know that what’s hidden away cannot be pretty, I believe Miss Tonette is a terrific example of reaction formation (look it up) and will one day come screaming out of the closet, at which point we’ll have to put him out of his misery. Exactly how, I’m unsure.

      • Joseph Miceli

        I know for a fact Bobby Jindal appointed him to one of our “police boards” which are state positions that do absolutely nothing. How much he actually is paid for doing nothing I don’t know.

  • Cherry

    Served briefly in the military? Per Wikipedia, he was in the Navy for 4 years during the Korean War. That doesn’t sound brief to me.

    Also, according to Tony’s Wikipedia page, he was “born and reared” in Oklahoma. Yeah, I just bet he was. LOL

    • abel

      That can’t be right, he’s way too young for the Korean War. I’m sure he was reared many times in Oklahoma, however.

    • TrollopeReader

      yeah, he was a US MARINE!! (MP, I think)

  • as always they push the absurd notion that we can only be focused on one thing and that anything that supports gay people is somehow taking away from fighting terror threats.

    secondly he pushes the absurd notion that the naming is because of his sex life. of course he would say this becasue to them there is no difference between the sex life and the sexual orientation but in fact there is a difference and it is the fight for equality that makes Harvey Milk worthy of having a ship named after him, not his sex life.

    • RoFaWh

      Another absurd notion: a person’s faults in one aspect of their life negate the good they’ve done in other aspects. Of course, as we know from the regular news reports of right wing fundies turning a little queer, they come nowhere near this standard themselves.

  • RobynWatts

    We’ll, if it make Tony feel any better, we can name this fine water vessel in his honor:

    • Treant

      The USS Balls Deep. Somehow that’s singularly appropriate for Tony.

    • I.Smith

      USS Liberty Council.

  • Lakeview Bob

      I hope she shit her goddamn Depends when she heard this news.

    sounds like little Tony is jealous.

    Dear Tony Perkins,
    I write this in the hope that you may see this, as sometimes you or one of he dwindling number of minions that you employ (times getting tough, Dear?) may see this.
    I want to tell you how much I appreciate you. I appreciate the way you’ve made money off of making people like me miserable. You’ve been very good at it over the years. You’ve done your best to create an environment where gay kids and adults are made to feel like the leprous abominations that you think they are. You personally have contributed to child abandonment and teen homelessness, child killings, murder and suicide and with your mad skills at Olympic level mental gymnastics, you managed to blame it all on GAY people! I applaud you, Sir!
    Now, as if that weren’t enough, you managed to get paid to do what you love. What a dream job! People around the world who hate LGBT folks send you money and you use it to spread your pestilence throughout the world. Talk about a win/win for you!
    Sadly, it seems your revenue is drying up. That well of hate is getting shallower and shallower. Uh oh! Looks like you might have to get a job someday…one where you make something besides the corpses of children.
    I hope you enjoy this new age, one where a good man and an activist like Harvey Milk gets a ship named after him by the U.S. Navy. Don’t worry, you have nothing to be envious of. Try not to cry when you are on your deathbed. Most people’s lives never touch as many as yours has. Why, you are responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people at the very least! I’m sure you and Dick Cheney have a special place already picked out by the Lord for your eternal reward!
    Just remember, dearest Tony, no one will ever forget you. You will always be there, a footnote in history as we record how we finally won against evil, evil like…You.
    Yours,
    Joseph Miceli

      Thank you. I do hope he gets it.

      Totes brill!

    • Kruhn

      That note was perfect. Perhaps JMG could send it to Tony as they’re always sparring.

      • Joseph Miceli

        Thanks. If there’s any way I can blight that man’s life I would take it.

  • Barry S G

    Tony is just jealous because no one has offered to name anything after him. I have a suggestion. Let’s name a “honey dew” truck after him. For those not familiar with the term a honey dew truck sucks shit, just like Tony.

  • 2patricius2

    Well I heard that Putin is naming two vessels after Donald Trump and Tony Perkins. They will be two little vessels. The Donald Trump is a towboat that will help tow the Vladimir Putin battleship into port. The Tony Perkins is a canoe that will be used by the captain of the Donald Trump towboat when he goes fishing on a creek near his dacha.

    I would have loved to have been stationed on the Harvey Milk πŸ™‚ Such a different military now than the one I knew.

    I was stationed on a ship home-ported out of Alameda, CA, when the NAS was still there. I was in the SF Bay area for work a few weeks ago, and drove through Alameda, my old stomping grounds, where I’d been based more than 30 years ago, and I thought I’d drive out to the docks, hearing the base was gone and everything was open now.

    Was strange driving right out to the pier. Our battlegroup was docked here in the 1980’s – the USS Enterprise (CVN-65 I think) was the command aircraft carrier. I was stationed on the USS California (CGN-36). They’ve let the place go quite a bit, and now the USS Hornet is docked as a museum, but that great view of the SF skyline we all enjoyed is till there. Brought back some strange memories.

        Dammit, beaten to the punch. Although the line is Admiral… he had not been demoted.

        • Friday

          Of course. I suppose I just was focused on trying to do a bad Chekhov in text. πŸ™‚

  • Clive Johnson

    Perhaps Tony would be satisfied by a ship named the USS Jesus H.

    • Acronym Jim

      I think the problem is that Perkins wants to be satisfied by the USS Captain Fellatio Hornblower.

    • Richard B

      naming a ship after a ancient myth?
      At least Harvey Milk was a hero to many and has a California holiday (May 22) and a park named for him.

  • gothambear

    Apparently Perkins is secretly lobbying to have the ship named the USS Josh Duggar in honor of his close and admired friend who lives his life the way Tony can only dream about…

    • Marides48

      No, the USS Josh will be a torpedo.

        oh my lurid, I love that

  • Actually my first thought when I hear anything issue from Tonette’s piehole is that immortal line from Torch Song Trilogy: “I swear that queen gives me gas!”

    (I’ve searched and searched for a clip of that scene online and it’s nowhere to be found. C’mon people, get with it!)

  • karmanot

    Well, it’s only fair that the Armed Service branches name all their toilets Perkins Pots or Dtrumpf Devices.

  • BudClark

    For the christening of the USS Harvey Milk, they should wrap Tony in raw meat and keelhaul him. Otherwise, the taste will be too unpalatable to the sharks.

    • abel

      I like the way you think!

    • Kruhn

      While The Village People sing “In The Navy”.

  • Mister Don

    Tony, I understand the USN will name a garbage scow after you.

    • ChrisMorley

      I hear it has already sunk.

    • Friday

      It should be one of those target-pulling tugs so the crew can pretend everyone’s out to destroy them. πŸ™‚

  • Princess Lardass

    You know, reading through that…

    ..it just amazes me how Perkins can’t see how hateful he really is. Maybe he does and doesn’t care.

  • Friday

    Uh, Tony, the whole class of ships is named after civil rights leaders, not war heroes. And I’m pretty sure complaining ‘It was illegal to be gay in the Navy then’ isn’t the best way of trying to throw smears around as if this was all about ‘promoting sex’ or about your attempts to blame gay people for the AIDS you right-wingers were cheering on when you mistakenly thought it was a ‘gay disease.’ …because gay people were that ghettoized and the like.

    Since you’re a pathological liar, wondering if anyone here has this biography you’re claiming to be quoting in the first place.

  • greenmanTN

    He’s just pissed because SS Jeebus went down during Pearl Harbor.

    I only mean that half facetiously.

  • Paige Turner

    Good grief they are the most deplorable and sick human beings.

  • MoeLarryAndJesus

    Tony Perkins always looks like he just got caught finger banging a ferret.

  • Secure

    No one has homosexuality on the brain as much as Tony Perkins. Jesus Christ dude, go find something to do outside. It’s fucking summer.

    • Robert Conner

      It’s monomania. A sad condition.

  • Robert Conner

    It’s clear Mr. Perkins enjoys having a stick up a his ass, metaphorically speaking. His political career has been one long, continuous, hissy fit about sex and Christianity, about like any alumnus of Liberty “university.”

  • WIGuy

    What would this man do if he could not bitch and moan about everything gay. Hell, is is more consumed with the gay world than I have ever been.

  • NO MORE GOP!

    What’s interesting here is that in death, Harvey Milk is remembered, and remembered for the kinds of things he’d want. People 100 years from now will know who Harvey Milk was. When Tony finally pushes up stinkweeds and thistles, nobody is going to remember him. He will simply cease to exist in the mind of humanity. I’d love to point this out to him.

  • SilasMarner

    Oh Tony, we don’t care what you think. And here’s a tissue to wipe away the tears. Ignore the snot on it, I had to use it earlier to blow my nose.

  • bbayliss

    “…And then I started jerkin’, just like Tony Perkins…” Bob Dylan

  • Richard Rush

    Ironically, the only reason that the vast majority of people, including Perkins, have ever heard of Harvey Milk is because he had the courage to stand up to the vicious anti-gay bigotry that permeated virtually all of American society at the time ~ an era that Perkins desperately seeks to return to. Other aspects of Harvey’s life would have been much different if he had not lived under those conditions, but of course, Perkins will never acknowledge that.

  • James

    Perkins is famous only because

    – he is president of a known hate group, which was classified as such under his leadership
    – he makes his living spreading anti-LGBT hate
    – he has ties with the KKK
    – in his time in the Louisiana House he passed laws restricting divorce and abortion

  • Cuberly

    So in Toni’s quest for “reasonableness” he spends multiple paragraphs yelling, “buttseks, AIDS, FAGGOT, buttseks, AIDS, FAGGOT.”…etc…

    Where’s the differing viewpoint Toni? Why I’m shocked at your brazen disregard for reasonable discourse. How uncivil.

    I’m so disappointed in you Toni. Tsk tsk….

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    β€œcontinued to engage in homosexual conduct while serving in the U.S. Navy” against the law.”

    Like pretty much every gay and lesbian member of the military.

    As for Randy Shilts, I have trouble trusting him since he introduced the false idea of a patient 0 in And the Band Played On. Of course he says it was his editor’s idea, but that is still no excuse. He smeared the memory of someone that didn’t deserve it.

    Frankly, I’m really surprised Perkins didn’t try to claim that Milk was a pedophile.

  • The blood of assaulted, tortured, and murdered LGBT people in America and all around the globe soaks Tony Perkins’ hands.

  • StraightGrandmother

    Forgive me but I just love it when Tony Perkins is outraged.
    It makes me happy.

    • abel

      Nothing so sweet as Miss Tonette’s Bitter Tears of Blighted Bigotry.

  • “A life marred by promotion of illegal drug use, sexual exploits, and lies …” add war crimes, and at least the entire second term trying to hide Alzheimer’s and the same can be said of Ronald Reagan – yet they cursed our newest aircraft carrier with that pestilent name anyway.

    • Kruhn

      It’s not the newest, the George H.W. Bush has been commissioned, however the rest of your argument is correct.

  • Mike__in_Houston

    Ah, the good old days of offering hitchhikers a bed to sleep in. I’d be afraid to do that now; I was too young and foolish to be afraid to do it back then…

  • Robert Conner

    Perkins is working on getting into the DSM 5. Now that homosexuality is no longer listed.

  • Cboulder

    Wasn’t Milk an officer in the Navy? And an elected official? If so,The distinction seems perfectly appropriate

  • Richard B

    Tony is going to have a terminal case of the SADZ in about a hundred days. His evangelical army tied themselves to Trump who is reportedly down 15 POINTS in the polls as of today.

  • Joe: you didn’t include the usual money bet that went along with this silly letter.

  • 1Truth1

    The USS Tony Perkins… Going down in flames.

  • Rex

    What will you be remembered for Tony? Bitching and moaning and begging for money. I’ll name a toilet after you and remember you every time I use it.

  • Hank

    β€œMilk is famous only for winning one election, being murdered β€” and having sex with men.”
    NO! he was famous for showing us HOW to be a POLITICAL FORCE and to CLAIM our Civil Rights and that it was OK to come out of the Closet!!!

  • BeaverTales

    Oh, whatever Tony….I get that a blog post about what this stupid bitch thinks is kind of obligatory on JMG and is only clickworthy for the “gawk-block” factor of reading the kind of disturbing brain rot emitted by these religion damaged human beings.

    I really just could not care less at this point what he believes. He lives in a very sad, dark and pathetic universe, and the sad deranged book he claims he believes in no longer determines how people want to live their lives anymore.

    Nobody who matters anymore actually cares. He’s not worth even a fraction of the attention I’d give either the poorest, the most demoralized and/or the most mentally or physically damaged homeless person I’ve ever met.

  • BudClark

    Poor Tony! He’s been out of sorts ever since he found out that his parents have arranged his next marriage…to Caitlyn Jenner!

      I’m so glad I keep a plastic cover on my keyboard now. The spat coffee just rolls right off! Thanks for the laugh!

    I have the sadz that Tony Perkins is eating food, drinking water, and breathing air that people and animals need far more than him.

      The only cure for those sadz is Miss Tonette’s Bitter Tears of Blighted Bigotry. They’re delicious, too.

    “A life marred by promotion of illegal drug use, sexual exploits, and lies doesn’t deserve one of the greatest military distinctions β€” especially not with so many genuine heroes to choose from…”

    Is it just me, or does that sound like any number of GOP politicians?
