The Real Reason Mitt Romney Is Losing and Will Lose

If he were a better man, Mitt Romney would have one of those dark mornings of the soul. He would wake up after a bender on virgin appletinis (known as "apple juice in a fancy glass" to the rest of us), unshaven, viciously moussed hair disheveled, and stagger into the bathroom in only his magic underwear. He'd tiredly root around for his penis and take a sputtering leak, as befits a man of his years.

This time Bryan Fischer has gone too far

This time Bryan Fischer has gone too far | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

I couldn't believe it when I first heard him say it. It was Tuesday afternoon and I was monitoring Bryan Fischer's American Family Radio show, a chore I begrudingly take on far more frequently than any LGBT people should have to. There, after hearing the AFA's most visible figure opine about Chick-fil-A for the umpteenth time and dream up new ways to verbally bully anyone who doesn't shun equality, Fischer dropped one of the most culturally insensitive attack lines I've heard from anyone on the other side of this debate.
