So Proud of My Buddy Rog

I’ve always known Roger was a terrific painter, but this new composition just blows me away.

You can see Roger’s portfolio here, and below are a few more of my favorites. 

NOMsense, plain and simple (minded)

NOM has filed an amicus brief with the 9th Circuit arguing for Prop 8.  They call it “dynamite.”  I call it a mess.  I’ll leave the legal analysis to the lawyers, but I have to point out some of the worst bits of logic or my head will explode (hey, maybe that’s why it’s “dynamite”).

Andy Shirvell Expands the Circle of Crazy

Crazed, sad, anti-gay Andrew Shirvell is continuing his public emotional meltdown.   Andrew, you’ll recall, is the Michigan assistant attorney general pursuing an insane vendetta against openly gay — gay, I tell you, gay! — University of Michigan student body president Chris Armstrong.  Now Andrew has broadened his rage to include the TV reporter who […]

More on Andrew Shirvell

I just called the Michigan Attorney General’s office about Andrew Shirvell. I asked:
