NEW YORK CLERK: SAME-SEX MARRIAGE COULD LEAD TO BESTIALITY

Focus on the Family’s Citizen Link recently caught up with Ledyard, NY town clerk Rose Marie Belforti, who has said she will not sign same-sex marriage licenses because it would “grieve the Holy Spirit that resides in my heart.” She told Citizen Link that she has gay friends, but she’s worried that when people do genealogical research, they won’t know the sex (or species) of the couple: “We know what a bride is, we know what a groom is—but if we choose to be a “spouse,” does that even limit (marriage) to a human being? Do you know what I’m saying?”

10 Unusual Things You Didn’t Know About Steve Jobs

Steve JobsI don’t care about Apple stock. (Well, I do think it will be the first trillion dollar company). Or about his business successes. That’s boring. The only thing that matters to me is how Steve Jobs became the greatest artist that ever lived. You only get to be an artist like that by turning everything in your life upside down, by making horrible, ugly, mistakes, by doing things so differently that people will never be able to figure you out. By failing, cheating, lying, having everyone hate you, and coming out the other side with a little bit more wisdom than the rest.

Tim Gunn: Hillary Clinton Dresses Like “She’s Confused About Her Gender”

by Accidental Bear

You tell it how it is Tim! And hey, what are you hiding under those turtle necks you are always wearing? It just got me thinking. AB

Apparently, it never gets old to mock Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “cankles” and pantsuits, at least if you’re Tim Gunn and George Lopez, who took the sexist trash-talking to the next level on Lopez’s show last night.

Gunn referred bitingly to her “Jersey Shorestyle,” and Lopez compared her prints to No Bugs M’Lady. It got worse.

Bin Laden Was Plotting a 9/11/11 Attack When We Offed Him The Wall Street Journal has new details on what intelligence, exactly, we got from the Abbottabad compound Osama bin Laden was living in when he was hunted down and killed by Navy SEALs.

The planning hadn’t advanced beyond recruiting attackers, the Journalsays, a process that didn’t get too far because “bin Laden repeatedly reject[ed] names that Mr. Rahman suggested.” He was a picky plotter.

Judge Rejects Sarah Palin On Global Warming, Keeps Polar Bears On Threatened List

by Accidental Bear

Sarah Palin hates Polar Bears, so sad.

In 2008, the U.S. government placed the polar bear on thethreatened species list because of the rapid decline in Arctic sea ice, becoming “the first to be designated as threatened because of global warming.”

But in 2008, media mega-star Sarah Palin was still the governor of Alaska. Fearing that protecting the polar bear would “cripple oil and gas development” off Alaska’s coasts, Palin — a well-worn climate science denier — sued the government to remove the species from the list. Palin pointed to the high population of polar bears in 2008 and dismissed climate models that predict continued loss of sea ice as “unreliable,” “uncertain,” and “unproven.”

Fox News uses Tina Fey Photo for Sarah Palin Report: Don’t Hate, Congratulate! |Video

by Accidental Bear

How amazing is this. I say cut them some slack and instead congratulate Tina Fey for an excellent performance. Don’t hate, congratulate!

It appears that the Fox News graphic department doesn’t know what their own employees look like.

During a segment reporting that Sarah Palin was undecided on whether or not to jump into the 2012 presidential race, the news channel showed a photo of Tina Fey imitating the former Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008.

In 2009, Fox News management sent out a memo to employees saying that on-screen errors would no longer be tolerated.

“Effective immediately, there is zero tolerance for on-screen errors,” the memo said. “Mistakes by any member of the show team that end up on air may result in immediate disciplinary action against those who played significant roles in the ‘mistake chain,’ and those who supervise them. That may include warning letters to personnel files, suspensions, and other possible actions up to and including termination, and this will all obviously play a role in performance reviews.” via videocafe.crooksandliars.com

Palin Say’s some fighting words about kathy Griffin

by Accidental Bear

If it came down to a claws scratching fist throwing street fight I think Palin would tear apart Kathy. Kathy sharp like a knife with a tongue would have to call on her enormous (love that word) gay Bear following to steam roll her. As far as Palin calling Kathy a has been, although she may be a ripe ole age of 50 “our”  Kathy (I claim the good ones) is just peaking!!

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro asked Sarah Palin how she feels about comedienne Kathy Griffin playing a “Tea Party candidate,” one some say resembles Palin, on an upcoming episode of Glee.

Clearly Palin’s not too pleased about the casting, or Griffin, whom she calls a “50-year old bully” and a “has-been.”

You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she’s kind of this – she’s a 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is…

She’s kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far.

Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.

If Griffin were indeed to fly up to Alaska, and the two women came to blows, my money would be on Mama Grizzly Palin. Something tells me she knows how to handle herself in such a situation.
