Hey notspelledbrain, I feel ya. There are no real ties in his “argument”, it just seems like he’s spewing out stuff that will appeal to “family values” assholes who hate that their hegemonic culture is losing its power. So he’s throwing around garbage that narrow-minded people think in their homes. Surprised he didn’t say something about abortion in the ad.

HOWEVER, just putting them in the same thought tacitly creates a connotation in people’s brains (our brains are trained to do this). So people hear this ad and think “gays in the military are keeping my kid from being Jesus in the Christmas pageant. Those gay faggot soldiers.” So whether or not Rick Perry means to, he is promoting hatred towards gay people.

An upvote for Rara AND an upvote for R2D2′s fantastic setup. Excellent teamwork, kids! Now go grab yourself some orange slices!

“You know Snape’s just sitting up in the tower, listening to Joy Division all day long, mixing potions because the only person who understood him left him for a rich Quiddich jock and is dead. Poor Snape.”

So I am super late to the party here and only expected to come by and help clean up, but I signed in just so I could say: badideajeans, if I could give you all my upvotes for the month, I would. Take them. (Take them….to the paahnts-sive…)

I don’t know if things are different in Pawnee, but I think it would be an equally bad image for an Assistant City Manager to suddenly have a relationship with a City Councilor – because if she wins, Leslie will basically be Ben’s boss.

Then again, Councilor Dexhart has been having threesomes with everything that moves and he still manages to survive.

Loved the (subconscious) choice of a Monica Lewinsky-esque polka dot dress for the rendezvous…

ohmylanta, there is a weekly gif roundup. You monsters have yet again shifted my paradigm.

I did notice this cute gif of your TV boyfriend wasn’t there, though.

“Just rent a limo, ask her to the prom, I’m sure she’ll say yes…”

Thought of concert_addict a lot last night…..give us whatcha got, CA. It’s showtime, Synergy!

There were so many funny lines last night, but the most underrated line of P&R last night?
Chris’ ironic “There’s literally nothing the two of you can’t do.” Leslie’s reaction face to that was priceless.

“I don’t even gamble, but that’s a lot of yarn”

I am going to try supersupersuper hard to work this into a regular conversation tomorrow.
Week’s Best Sentence.
srsly, wettrew, can a guest-guest-post be considered for Editor’s Choice?

HEY WAIT THAT’S ME!!!! HOW’D YOU GET MY PHOTO? I CALL PRIVACY INVASION!

Excellently told, too! Hotspur, this memoir was David Sedaris good.

Seriously – look at all the monsters waiting for Hotspur at the next pizza party….

kingmaker, sadly McDs and Starbucks have come to symbolize the American Dream so it actually IS pretty fitting.

WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THE DREAM ISLAND.

My thoughts exactly

I just can’t get past how similar this film is to Sweet November. People always be rippin’ off Keanu….

B-FAB. Tell your friends.

Remember the insanely reassuring Step Up 2 crew continuity return, but without any mention of what the heck happened to Lead Guy and Lead Girl from that movie? Ya burnt, Chase and Andie!

But THE BEST things to remember were the Dance Dance Revolution kids who were obvs eligible to compete in the epic dance battle that old Asian men gamble tons of money on. It’s World Jam Competition time…. do you know where your awesome children are??

I just showed this to my mother (who takes care of my increasingly senile grandmother) and she agrees with me that this woman is not only pretty darn with it in this moment but obviously enjoying herself. Two thumbs up from the gumlover family!

The little girl? Isn’t she from Look Who’s Talking 4000 or something? The one where little Bruce Willis has Roseanne Barr for a sister.
