Bryan Fischer, the face (for want of a better word) of the American Family Association, is so obsessed with homosexuality that he sees it where it doesn’t exist. Latest case in point: Fischer has determined that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be our first lesbian president.
How does Fischer know? Funny you should ask. It’s because he think it’s entirely possible that Hillary is having an affair with Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner’s wife. Also, speculation from Gennifer Flowers, who has made an industry out of allegations that she had a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton.
“The bottom line is that if Hillary Clinton becomes president in 2016 she will not only be our first female president she could be our first lesbian president,” Fischer said on his radio show.
Abedin was an aide to Clinton in the State Department and is considered part of her inner circle. If being part of a politician’s inner circle makes you a lesbian, then Washington, D.C. is the ultimate Dinah Shore Golf Tournament.
As for the Flowers, Fischer quotes her as saying that Bill once told her that Hillary is bisexual, which clearly is the same as having it printed in the Encylopedia Britannica.
We have gotten a glimpse of the 2016 presidential campaign. It’s not going to be pretty.
@jwrappaport: Exactly. I’m amazed how many people fall for this “libertarian” gimmick which is just a lame cover for Ayn Rand’s long-discredited “greed is good” and “selfishness is virtue” philosphy that sounds seductive when you’re an immature teenager, but which you should know is BS when you’re a mature adult.
Putting aside the fact that Rand Paul is not President-material given that he was an eye doctor just two years ago, he is just another objectivist/libertarian who doesn’t understand that government exists not just protect one’s own selfish desires but to protect the vulnerable. Hence his imaature, headscratching comments about how the Civil Rights Act went too far in not allowing businesses to discriminate in their public accomodations. Just what America needs: a President who thinks Jim Crow was okay because selfishness is a virtue. Except not.
@jeff4justice: This is all talk, less filling akin to ranting that “the 405 sucks, and so surface strees”. Okay, and? It is well known from long ago that the major parties are imperfect, but ranting how “the two party system sucks” is not a policy idea. Whining and complaining is easy — you have presented nothing in way of policies and ideas that indicate where third parties are less beholden to monied interests or more ready to govern palatably based on their patforms. Where’s the beef?
@BJ McFrisky: Spoken like washed-up gay dude who’s never met a straight woman. If you think straight women don’t put up with womanizing, your obvious social isolation issues are probably a bigger deal that your obvious problems with false heteronormative stereotyping.
@jeff4justice: I’ve offered no evidence that a society functioning under a peaceful, anarchist non-agression principle would be any better or worse than the clearly dysfunctional 2-party system charade for the same reasons I’ve offered no evidence that buying everybody a teddy bear and a pony would make everybody happier. I actually do think a peacful non-aggressive society would function better than any other system. I also think world peace would be a nice thing to have — so what?
The Green Party does not take corporate donations for the same reasons the Party in my Pants doesn’t. Last time I checked, lobbyists weren’t into throwing their money into a giant hole and setting it on fire LOL.
I’m too busy holding the Democratic Party’s feet to the fire to dream pipe dreams — I do hope others continue to flog their favored horses though, as it is a free country.
@jeff4justice: If by different result you mean urging Democrats into ending the Bush tax cuts for the rich, allowing gays to serve openly in the military, and enacting healthcare reform — yeah, I’m going to keep pressuring Democrats into making forward progress.
Meanwhile, you keep on doing the same thing over and over with empty platitudes about third parties. I’m sure you’ll continue to acccomplish a fat lot of nothing.
The political progress women, gays, and racial minorities have made have all been due to third parties. Whoops, except not. All hail talking loud and doing nothing!
@jeff4justice: How could a black man or woman ever do it? By working within the two-party system, of course. Thank you for pointing out yet another thing the Democratic Party has accomplished that a third party never could.
Way to go on the nonexistent third party accomplishment — I’ll take the imperfect, incremental changes accomplished in real life over the __________________________ accomplished by third parties any day. You can save the conspiracy theorist “fact sheets” for the Lyndon LaRouche crowd.
