Congratulations, Trepidations, and Joculations

CONGRATU-FRIGGIN-LATIONS go to Washington, D.C. whose law - that was passed last year - allowing same-sex couples to marry went into effect as of this morning. Maybe, just maybe, with all the laughing, happy, loving couples that will surely turn out in droves throughout the next few weeks and months to take advantage of this basic human right, lawmakers in D.C. will get over their prejudices and give rights to the rest of us around the country.

Dare to dream...

Elsewhere, Joe Lieberman, the same exact guy who's been responsible for helping Republicans hold up healthcare reform, introduced the Military Readiness Act of 2010. This law would effectively end Don't Ask Don't Tell, and allow thousands of men and women to continue serving our country as capable soldiers. Joe Solmonese, President of the Human Rights Campaign, called this new legislation "a bold, patriotic move that will long be remembered as key to removing the stain of the discriminatory ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ law from the U.S. code." Unsurprisingly, John McCain - who has flip-flopped enough times on this issue that he should be a very well-done pancake by now - is expressing that, "At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services, we should not be seeking to overturn the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy."

Yeah, because with our military shortage, we couldn't use the over 13,000 trained, viable, eager men and women who have been fired from the armed services because of what they do in their bedroom. That wouldn't help out hardships at alllllllllllll.

Also, Sarah Palin is adding stand-up comic to her already glowing resume. Yeah... She went on the Jay Leno show and did a really cheesy comedy routine, laughing about Botox and her love of guns. She also poked fun at both herself and President Obama when laughing about teleprompters. Isn't this woman trying to become some sort of viable political candidate? Or, at least, get as far away from the idea that she's not intellectually fit to run a bake sale, let alone a country, as she can? I'm not too sure that a stand-up routine was the best thing for her to do.

That being said, I hope she runs in 2012! I cannot WAIT to see Obama eviscerate her in the debates. And, yes, before you go hunting for video, I have conveniently put the routine below for your stomach-churning pleasure!

Love and Lyte,

I am going to laugh...and laugh again...Sarah Palin is an idiot..hahahaha...ok i'm fine now..maybe -_-....She is only good for her stupidity..not her brains...she HAS NONE....Yeah I am a bit mean but it is just TRUE...I am jsut thinking what would it be like if she was Vice President and John Miccain took over? hahaha it would just be...Ok I am not saying it I am not going to start a conflict with others here but she ignites my inner rioter!!! Tina Fey would make a better vice president, at least she has brains =) Obama will SO beat her to the 2012 elections. I will see her fall then laugh then laugh again..oh yeah and laugh again. She has no humor, the joke is only ON her...Oh wait she is a huge joke.

    Joe Lieberman needs to stop holding off the healthcare reform its not helping ANYONE. We need the Change NOW!!!
