Gay Wedding Tips From a Straight Republican


SOUNDBITES — “Look, I’m Republican and I know the majority in my party don’t share this view, but as it relates to the government, marriage is a contract, and as citizens, every citizen should have every right that every other citizen has, period. If marriage is legal for Ted & Mary, it should be legal for everyone else. The only gay person I have a problem with is Barney Frank and not because he’s gay, but because he voted to spend 787 billion. I want to see same sex couples getting licensed, and taxed like every other couple. Let everyone experience the ‘joys’ of a wedding. Here’s some highlights from mine that some people may want to use as a cautionary tale. When you’re asked what the wedding colors should be, don’t say ‘whatever.’ Make sure the caterer is out of earshot before you call him ‘Satan’s spawn,’ and most importantly when your partner is freaking out, never, ever say ‘Calm down, it’s just a wedding.’ Straight or gay, that’s just a recipe for disaster.” —Political comedian Jim Mendrinos who, yes, is making jokes [Team Washington]

    that’s pretty funny.

  • CelebLulz

    what a fat fugly freak

  • Richard in DC

    I dunno, I think that’s pretty hysterical. (Though I personally love Barney Frank, who is equally funny)

  • Nick

    Humor: one great way to diffuse anti gay marriage sentiment and bring about full acceptance. This is a signal from conservatives that gay marriage is inevitable and will not bring about the end of the world as we know it.

    If more men looked like him, I would seriously reconsider my aversion to pussy.

    “I want to see same sex couples getting licensed, and taxed like every other couple.”

    Like we are presently excluded from paying taxes???

  • schlukitz

    That statement would have been more accurate had he said…

    “I want to see same-sex couples getting licensed, and enjoying the same tax benefits like every other couple.”

  • Bitch, please!

    @ Celeblulz and Fitz: See if you can stop being such superficial, air-headed, sterotypical queens for a second. There is more to a person than just their looks–learn to appreciate that too! If only attractive people were allowed then you two would be pitch-forked and burnt to extra-crispy, whenever you dared to step out the door, bitches!

  • TANK

    Wow, this is just hilarious…soooo funny. What is a political comedian, anyway? Broke. Yeah…unsuccessful? Sure. Does he play an instrument or wear a diaper on stage? Comedy: it’s supposed to be funny.

  • TANK

    @Bitch, please!:

    That’s ugly people talk.

  • Bitch, please!

    TANK, you really shouldn’t talk down to us, seeing that you are the PRESIDENT of the same club!

  • Fitz

    @Bitch, please!: Are you fat and ugly because you are mean, or are you mean because you are fat and ugly?

  • Bitch, please!

    @ “fizz”: “Shit-for-brain” should never be heard, heck they shouldn’t be seen either!
