He gives the term " common sense " a bad name ; so we'll have to start rooting for un-common sense instead ; but that's the privilege of un-common people .. only .. so there's not much hope it'll be soon adopted .

He should be thankful the shoe's not on the other foot. Imagine how long he'd be sent to prison for if making bigoted comments was punishable with prison time.

I agree with Committeeman Dave Agema. The Russian law is in place to protect society (especially children) from homosexual propaganda which is common sense!

Homosexual propaganda is common sense? That's a surprising thing, coming from you.

I bet it really aggravates your menstrual cramps that so many of his fellow Republicans in Michigan, including House Speaker Jace Bolger and Majority Leader Randy Richardville, have distanced themselves from Smegma's vitriol. Poor little Gussy-wussy.

Oh, is this the guy they all don't want to touch with a ten-foot pole?

It's important to be just as vocal as he is; I am glad when I see you guys telling it like it is. If he is going to be nasty, he can get slammed back, and that's that.

Are you talking about Guy aka Franz aka Our Little Trollhouse Cookie, etc., etc.?

If so, don't worry ... he's harmless, one of our more pathetic little mascots. You remember that tacky term that people used to have for straight women who hang around gay men because they don't have a man in their life, or any close female friends?

Well, he's the male counterpart of a fack hack. He's supposedly heterosexual (but in practice is asexual), doesn't have a love relationship, and doesn't have any friends in the straight community. So he hangs around us, trying to get some attention, even though it's the negative kind. You'll notice that he's usually the first to comment on any story, that he changes his name and location frequently, and that he often "talks to himself" by answering his own posts.

Just ignore him as much as possible and remember: as long as he's chained to his computer, and refreshing the Topix site every 20 seconds, we know he's not out in the real world actually doing anything destructive to stop our momentum.

You couldn't imagine a more stark and clueless negation of the First Amendment. Our mullahs rarely show their theocratic yearnings so blatantly.

Well to any RNC members who support this, if you don't like the freedoms and equality of your country, and prefer Russia's, then move. If the gay equality and marriage is the number one issue for these bigot's they should leave.

Has anyone else noticed that the Republican Party has moved so far right that now they agree with Communists?

Coming from a Republican, his comments are no suprise.
