Friday Links! (with extra hypocrisy and work!)

It’s yet another Friday, here’s a yet another collection of news and other things that struck me as worthy of being shared:

Cathy McMorris Rodgers Is A Horrible Lying Assclown in Response to State of the Union.

The U.S. hypocrisy over Russia’s anti-gay laws. On one level, I’ve been saying stuff like this for a while. I do quibble with that fact that in none of the states with similar “don’t say gay laws” are the police going around beating gay people and throwing them in jail en masse.

Coca-Cola’s “It’s Beautiful” Super Bowl Ad Brings Out Some Ugly Americans. You’ve probably already seen this, but I think it’s funny that the wingnuts are so busy being upset about “America the Beautiful” lyrics not in English, that they are failing to get apoplectic about the gay men ice skating with their daughter.

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
