Whoa. When Redd pointed me to That Newsweek cover, I thought it was a P’shop.

Nope.

Obama may (or may not) have picked up a few votes by declaring his (nonbinding, verbal) support for gay marriage. But being declared the first gay president? Yeah, probably not helpful.

So the question is, did Andrew Sullivan (who is, let us remember, bugfuck crazy) call Obama gay because he just couldn’t contain his excitement (“…when I watched the interview, the tears came flooding down…), even if it might be politically damaging in 2012? Or does he think that the culture wars are finally won — in his favor? Or is he — eh, I dunno — bugfuck crazy?

I was a bit taken aback by that graphic, too…couldn’t believe it was the actual cover, but evidently it is.

Bugfuck crazy.

I laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed…I wonder if we aren’t witnessing in real time some sort of mass psychological event involving Obama supporters (Newsweak editors), and their repressed rage at things like his humiliating habit of making Obama voters look silly when he, you know, says or does something.

Well, I was going to go with “if you don’t buy this magazine we’ll kill this dog“…but I thought I might get some unwelcome attention from the US embassy. Man, are Time and Newsweek getting desperate to attract attention.

The days are long gone when the likes of Time or Newsweek have anything other than marginal influence. This really is the same dynamic as the shark-jumping sitcoms undergo when they’ve run out of ideas. They are forced to take successively more outré positions, which of course marginalises them even further. Newsweek is in a death spiral.

I saw a great line: everyone assumed James Buchanan was America’s first gay President. Obama is just its gayest.

Well, that magazine cover IS a Photoshop, or whatever graphics software they use to set it up. It’s just not a sarcastic Pshop. Which is the mind boggling aspect of it — the loons are dead serious.

But don’t forget, Newsweek sold for $1. And it’s worth every penny.

As for Andrew Sullivan — before he stopped pretending to be a conservative, he was just a nut. But 8 years under Dubya’s personal fascist regime, followed by excessive exposure to Sarah Palin’s uterus, added to his condition.

And now he is bugfuck crazy.

I thought it was a PS too, until I had it confirmed that it was the NEWSWEEK cover. My response was to make a T-Shirt with the magazine cover on it, with the Sullivan title circled in red. And a note in red below that “It’s Now OFFICIAL”. Y’all may have heard the sounds of Leftist heads exploding from the Rocky Mountains.

It seemed that the owners/editor of NEWSWEEK had scored an “own goal” of monumental proportions. I took it as a single episode and wanted to take advantage of it.

It is not. The NEW YORKER magazine has joined in. Here is the cover of the new issue:

http://www.newyorker.com/images/covers/2012/2012_05_21_p154.jpg

The theme of the magazine is the inevitability of the success of the gay agenda, and praise for “Teh Lightworker” for bringing about the great new pan-sexual age.

It seems that either the Leftist Elites judge that they have won, and that the American electorate [which has a pretty strong record of voting it down when given a chance] has “evolved”, or they believe that the electorate is not going to have a chance to weigh in. The first is an opportunity, the second is a warning.

The cover reminds me of the Obama “art” from some of his supporters, which often includes such features as rainbows, unicorns, open shirts with his(?) manly chest, etc. It betrays the lack of an internal editor, an inability to recognize absurdity.

Well the scrotum huggers in the gay wing of the Democrap party have finally taken over the asylum from their betters, judging by this. And it is only going to get going even faster from here on out. All the way to November, and after, regardless of potential winner.

5% of the population, tops, is running the gears of half the country. Go figure. Talk about the vocal minority.

If I remember correctly, the deportation of Andrew Sullivan was threatened because he got caught smoking dope in a Federal Park [literally in front of a Federal officer]. Thus the stricter Federal laws were invoked at a felony level. Under his visa, a felony conviction meant deportation. It would also in his case mean fairly quick death as his survival is based on regular dosages of anti-retroviral drugs not available under the Brit National Health Service.

Due to his political utility, and the intervention of someone high up in the DOJ; charges were dropped.

I wish the site would proofread before they post; it’d look a lot more legit. That said, nothing would surprise me about the POTUS…or, as we we fondly call him ’round these parts, the SCOAMF.

I’m going with BFC for Obama; Sullivan’s condition is beyond words. O is on the downlow, racked with gay rage and guilt, confounded by his communist failures, filled with black hatred for whites and America after 20 years being a bottom for Michelle and J.Wright, and still trying to be a good Jew-hating subversive Mohammedan. Yep, BFC.

Well its what you expect from a 1 dollar news operation, a cover story from old “milky loads.”

This is killing him in battleground states, and Ace has a piece up that suggests he meant for it to be a throwaway statement, something to get those sweet “gay dollars” rolling in, but nothing that was supposed to be paid much attention to. He really loses overall from this. I cannot see this guy winning in November at this point.

I don’t speak for America OR the world, and I don’t want to. I have no right. But that doesn’t stop the racist right. Somewhere in their delusional hypocritical minds, someone made them speakers of the world and this country. No one did. No one ever win. But like I said, it doesn’t stop them from spreading the wide-spread lie of hate. That EVERY SINGLE BEING in the United States of America and the Whole World of existence hates Barack Obama.

No that is not true. It’s obvious they don’t pay attention to how the world thinks. just how faux news and hate radio tells them how the world thinks, But the cold-hard fact is not EVERY single being in the world is an uneducated, racist, bigoted right-winger who hates that a black couple represents the United States. Week by Week, I keep saying how the racist right have lost their sense of reality (If they ever had one!)

Ever heard that retarded saying “SCOAMF” Can’t tell you what it means, look it up. I said people if they are tired of hearing this crap. Turns out they aren’t, because they never heard. One a certain group of people never head the disrespectful trope. Classy, Respectful, Intelligent People. Ob’s such a Miserable Failure he grad Harvard Law and passed his bars and practiced law and beat the “war hero,” John McCain & Simple Sarah. Got Bin Laden. The white supremacists of the GOP Base reek of envy and desperation.

Why does he need to release his school records? President Johnson didn’t even learn how to read until he was an adult, and he was taught how by his wife, not a school. There have been 7 presidents who never went to college at all, 2 that attended but never graduated, and one who in his entire life had a total of 1 year formal learning and everything else was self-taught. And please look up the definitions of Socialist, Communist, and Capitalist. I don’t think those words mean what you think they mean, and Socialist and Communist are not interchangeable.

Why go through all this crap? Because of Mitt Romney. He is the only respectful man in the cesspool of racism known as the GOP. He takes the high road so much, they should just re-name it “The Romney Road” But his followers CAN’T create reasons other than he’s not black for the majority to vote for him in November.

They don’t like him because he;s not the spitting image of their god, Ray-gun. As we more toward the November election Romney will increasing get more and more ludicrous in his attempts to find talking points to use, as the economic conditions slowly and surely get better. This in spite of all the efforts of the republicans in Congress to flush this country down the toilet just to make Obama a single term president. Mitt is the most out of touch politically and socially tone-deaf individual, in my lifetime, to run for President, and that goes back to the 1952 election.

So lies and slander is ALL the racist right have left. Not to mention character Assassination. Think about this. Obama said he’s a Christian, He’s a liar. But If he said he snorted cocaine, he’s telling the truth Obama said he respects religions, he’s a liar, But if he said that he used to bully people all the time, he’s telling the truth. These hateful slime balls believes ANYTHING bad about Obama, even if he said it. He even said he was a Christian, but he’s lying. Bet you if he, out of nowhere, said he used to kill for fun. The a-holes who believe it.

This is gonna be the most possibly racist election in history. As told by this man:
