Apologies For Linking To A Questionable And Perverted Website
« on: August 22, 2012, 02:38:47 AM »
Of course, I'm talking about FOX News.  This is one of the funniest interviews I've seen in a while.  This man is soooo gay.  He was the other Designing Woman that wasn't on the show much, because he went to live with the Golden Girls.  But, he spouts off about differences he has with Obama and Christian values.  I have no doubt he's talking about the "gay agenda," but he can't bring himself to actually say that.  I'm sure that was due to the obvious reaction that would have to his own gayness.  All the while, he smacks his lips all through the interview.  I'm sure he came up with the bakery store name with his "wife." 

I suppose I should explain more.  I happened to catch an interview on FOX with a bakery owner from Virginia.  He says VP Biden's advance team came to his store and asked if Biden could stop in for a visit.  He says he declined based on his differences in religious views, but also due to President Obama saying business owners didn't build their businesses.  Ok, while President Obama could have said that better, he did not say they didn't build their businesses.  He said they didn't build the roads, bridges, and other infrastructures they rely on.  And, Greta knew very well that was taken out of context, but she lets her 70 year-old, anti-everyone not white, straight, and Christian viewers continue to believe the narrative.

But, this guy is hilarious.  If he's not gay, then I'm not gay.  I would bet money there are guys in his town who know him inside and out.  You can watch below.

Hey TNL!

I get him in a different way. His southern accent and manners,which include much efffort so as not to be disrespectful to any customers or anyone else, could be misinterpretted.

I think this is WYSAHIWYG. (What you see AND HEAR is what you get)

Despite being a Republican, and likely not thrilled about gay marriage, he otherwise strikes me as being sweet as a cupcake and not in a closet except one filled with flour, sugar and eggs.

My gaydar didn't go off the scale.

He's not very articulate though, is he.  Could't answer Greta's pretty simple questions to explain his refusal. 

Sweet, but maybe rather dumb.

I didn't notice any overt characteristics that would indicate he's closeted.  Being from KY, I'm surprised you don't know many men who have that delicate, educated manner of behavior and speaking.

I found him to be very articulate and avoiding questions doesn't suggest otherwise.  He obviously did not want to address specifics, as is his right.

How many on this site would allow Romney a photo-op at their privately owned businesses?  Right, because they view his policies different than their own!

Agreed. When I lived for a short time in the South, I learned one doesn't often know when "southern charm" is being applied.

Also, regarding his intelligence, you cannot run a bakery business and be dumb. It's quite a complicated business actually requiring considerable fortitude as well.

wow! the VP of the USA wants to visit YOUR store and you say no. What disrepect** and what a missed opportunity to voice your opinions.

**The President himself claims to be Christian, so was this once again concerning the false belief about who and what the President is? Especially since Joe Biden is Catholic. Besides the government is supposed to have no "religious faith" - although last I checked it seems pretty "Christian" for most people's tastes.

While I might not let any ol' candidate have a photo op in my store, I would never say no to whoever was the current President, VP, etc. What a historical event!

Hell I would have let Ronald Reagan in my pet store back in the day - just so I could have given him a piece of my mind and had him say the word "AIDS" a lot sooner than he did.

Oh, Lord.  I thought my gaydar needed to be recalibrated.

Business owners would typically never turn down such an opportunity because it's generally great for business to have a sitting P or VP stop by and have a look or a taste.

In this instance, this guy probably got more PR than normal. He didn't offend any of his local clients and it reads as if he's got a lot of them in his corner already (politically, that is). After the visiting dignitary leaves, that's where his bread is sold and buttered, so I gotta applaud him.

Intentional or not, it was tactically brilliant and newsworthy for its blend of sweet and savory.

Yes -- Virginians are almost as crazy as Texans -- ALMOST.

Kind of interesting that UVA, which sits in, arguably, the most liberal spot in VA (Charlottesville) would be opposed to a sitting Democratic President's visit.

Crazies managed a coup at UVA awhile ago.  I like the theory that its a Goldman Sachs plot:
http://thebillfold.com/2012/06/the-case-of-the-coup-at-uva/

Will the desperate right be content when every grand institution in the USA is wrecked?  Maybe Chick-fil.A can also be a community college, to take up the slack.  It will be for profit, but easily accessible.  Get a worthless diploma, student loan debt, a tasty and unhealthy meal, and Christian brainwash, all in one stop.

Amercia the beuwiful.
