Someone needs to tell me how I can become a political commentator. Because it seems like a lot of fun. You just take the big topic of the day and provide your ridiculous and over-the-top commentary. It’s pretty much what I do in this blog every day. Except whereas I’m joking around, political commentators have to keep a straight face and pretend the country is in crisis mode, even though none of them actually give a shit.
Which bring us to our quote of the day. This is from right-wing pundit Tony Perkins (via the Huffington Post):
"The month of June is Gay Pride Month," Perkins declares. He went on to note, "Now, I have not yet seen where they have declared Adultery Pride Month, I have not seen where they have declared the Drunkenness Pride Month," before adding that "we’re not celebrating those other forms as a society, we’re not promoting [them] and teaching [them] as normal in our schools."
He’s right. There’s no such thing as Drunkenness Pride or Adultery Pride. It’s unfortunate, cause those sound pretty awesome. Especially if we were able to combine them into one parade. Imagine every September heading down to Manhattan for the Macy’s Drunken Adultery Day Parade. Everyone would carry a 40 of King Cobra and dress like a skank. It’d be the illicit bastard child of St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween. I don’t know about you, but I am 100% down for this. Craigslist can be a sponsor, Charlie Sheen can be the Grand Marshall and we’ll get a giant blow-up balloon of Frank Sinatra. It’ll be the greatest party of the year. Thanks for the idea, Tony Perkins! You are a true American hero!
