Now can we say “so long” to the non-journalist slime that is James O’Keefe?

UPDATE: O’Keefe prank partner tries to defend themselves in this Esquire piece:

ESQ: People are accusing you of misogyny and worse. What did you hope to achieve?

[Ben Wetmore]: It was humor. There was a joke to it — James isn’t a lothario of sexual conquest at all. It was going to be awkward, not sexually aggressive. It was meant to be outlandish and ridiculous. When you dissect and sterilize a joke, it’s not funny anymore — when you read the transcript of an SNL skit, you’re not going to laugh, but you do when it’s performed. It seems one way in print, but the video would’ve looked very different….

Uh, The reason why you wouldn’t laugh at a transcript of SNL is because.. well… Ben, SNL has not been very funny in many years.

ESQ: But your work is political. Was there an ideological point to this? Are you trying to be a Daily Show of the right?

BW: It was a comment on CNN’s methods — how they get stories versus how those stories turn out….

That makes absolutely no sense. How exactly is luring a female reporter under false pretenses onto a boat filled with dildos and a dildo   “commentary”… Oh, I get it…  No, wait, no I don’t.

…In the grander scheme, the overall story that’s unfolding is somewhat ironic. And there isn’t an antecedent we’re trying to replicate. James is doing his own thing. … I may give him some ideas from time to time, but he’s his own man and mind.

Guys, learn to quit while you’re ahead!… Or, in this case, less behind.

A Very Sad Story.

A closeted gay student at Rutgers committed suicide after his dorm-mate secretly video’d him having sex and broadcasting it live over the web. This brings back some of the pains of my own struggles against myself. It wasn’t until I was out of college that I could even utter the words “I’m gay” out loud. And even then, it felt strange to say it. I can remember more than once resiting the urge to look over my shoulder to see who might have overheard. Some of the comments posted below the story makes me want to puke. And you wonder why many young gay people still find it so gut-wrenchingly difficult to accept who they are and what they feel.

Makes this project all the more important.

PS. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s response to this hits all the right notes. God, I hope this guy is as genuine as he appears.

Well, this is a bazaar story. A Michigan assistant attorney general, Andrew Shirvell, is stalking a gay student at University of Michigan for…. ???????? You try and figure it out!

Just watch.

When watching the “Christian” Shirvell, if your gay-dar needle doesn’t whip around and break the glass out of the casing, you need to have that thing repaired! And yes, why isn’t this guy fired? (hint, boss is also a devout “Christian”)

PS. Shirvell’s boss’s last name is Cox!

Hat Tip: Sully.

RIP, Tony Curtis.
