Maybe no "open" LGBT senators... But we did have Larry Craig (Mr. "Wide Stance"). And if Lindsay Graham, one of South Carolina's senators, isn't gay then I must not be either!

Demarcates have no problem saying they are gay. but we seem to hear from cops, pages, rent-a-boys about the Republicans, and the gay Repub-O-Gays out number the Dem-O-Gays by at least 10 to one.

By your math, that suggests "at least" 40 gay Republicans. Care to give any hints as to who they are? And substantiation as to how you determined that they were gay? My guess is that if there were *really* 40+ gay Republicans, somebody would have already had a field day outing them, given the hatred of Republicans by those unable or unwilling to think.

And the hatred of Republicans by those of us who are totally willing and able to think and can see what hypocrites most of them can be.

the Catholic church destroyed Rome. Do a little research, Rome didn't fall until the church made it fall.

BS. If you were able to actually think, you wouyldn't be so proud of your porejudice and bigotry toward half of your fellow Americans who, by the way, defeated your beloved Democrats in their most humiliating defeat in the past seventy years. Only you and Nancy Pelosi can claim that your humiolation was none of your own doing.

Juat how stupid and clearly NON-thinking can you possibly be?

How ironic... YOU'RE the one full of BS. I NEVER said I was a Democrat nor that they were "beloved". You lie by putting words into other peoples' mouth. You take a statement and add all sorts of BS to it in your own feeble mind. I also NEVER said anything about "all" Republicans either so your statement about porejudice (sic) against half my fellow Americans is BS as well.
Your "BS Detector" is going off like a geiger counter in a nuclear reactor because it's too close to your head.

It's practically useless to banter with the delusional, totally negative trolls. These people get their jollies out of bullying other people semi-anonymously ... calling them liars, stupid, and all sorts of other things without any good reason. You cannot win and you just keep them going if you acknowledge them. Of course, sometimes you just have to reply but it's like pi$$ing in the wind.

Lets consider the term, "blackmale". And I was including the house and the Senate.

Look at the low rent charged to many of them by supporters and lobbyists. Every wondered what they get out of it? Wives stay at home with the family. How may sleep alone?

Now Can you prove there is less than 40 more Gays in the legislature.

Anytime someone points at another rether than themselves it is to keep you attention on someone other than you.

Magicians are good at it but politisions who are gay even better.

I do not car if anyone is gay, Lesbian or inbetween, how someone self identifies is up to them and them only.

I didn't make the silly claim, thus I have nothing to prove. You made the claim. Back it up with fact or retract it.

But since you are always negative and rarely have anything either factual or reasonable, isn't it you who are the real troll? You, too, are semi-anonymous which now shows you to be a hypocrite. And since it is so easy to substantiate your stupidity (making ridiculous claims you cannot back up and clearly being a hypocrite), does that not suggest some huge measure of stupidity on your part since the only people you deign really engage are those who already agree with your nonsense in the first place? The FACT is, I have excellent reason for my observations that you are stupid, a liar, and a hypocrite. You are the bully lamely trying to intimidate anybody who dares disagree with your dishonstry to not comment and point out your stupidity, dishonesty and hypocrisy in *your* forum. Clearly, your dishonesty is all you have. Being stupid in trying to shift the bnlame from your own dishonesty and hypocrisy is a tactic that clearly does not work and is also clearly shown to be bullsh!t every time you try that bullsh!t with me. That, again, indicates your stupidity.

Hint: If you don't want to always appear stupid, and if you don't want to be called on your dishoinesty, don't be so stupid, and don't be dishonest. Okay, so you'd lose the BS self-righteousness, and you might be left with only a reasonable disagreement.

But you're clearly too stupid to do that. We will know that by your stupid and dishonest response.
