Same-Sex Couple Suing Organization For Using Their Photo In Anti-Gay Political Ad!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikSad Sad

This is so awful and we totally hope this couple is granted justice!

Brian Edwards and Tom Privitere are suing an anti-gay group called Public Advocate of the United States because their private photo — featuring them kissing at their engagement party — was used in the hateful organization's homophobic political ad!

Public Advocate lifted the image from the New Jersey couple's website and featured it in an advertisement (above) attacking Republican Colorado State Senator Jean White for supporting gay unions.

The couple's lawyer calls the despicable act "nothing short of theft" and we can't help but agree!

Not only did the backwards organization not ask for permission to use the picture, but they didn't pay for it either.

Although we're sure the couple wouldn't accept ANY amount of money for their image to be used in such a derogatory manner, we bet they wish the photograph wasn't a tainted reminder of the intolerance that still pollutes this great country.

When commenting on the case, Edwards referred to the picture as a "defiled image" and explained:

Watch Kirk Cameron Weigh In On Todd Akin And 'Legitimate Rape'

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePolitik

If you haven't been living under a rock…or a place with no access to the internet, newspapers or television, then you already know all about Rep. Todd Akin's views on "legitimate rape" and abortion.

In case you're just tuning in, the Congressman is currently running for Missouri's Senate seat and went on television to declare that — from what he understands "from doctors" — it's really rare for a woman to get pregnant after being raped.

Ya see, as long as it's "legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

While it sounds like he watched the movie Teeth a few too many times or maybe thinks the female uterus is armed with booby traps that eliminate any trespassing sperm, it turns out he simply "misspoke."

But now, it's someone else's turn to put their two cents in on the issue. Check out the video (above) to watch Kirk Cameron shared with CNN his DEFENSE of the controversial politician.

It's nice to know that Kirk Cameron doesn't believe there is "any kind of okay rape," but a little disappointing that he couldn't take the subject anywhere past his theologically-inspired views on abortion. At least he didn't bash the gays this time!

Rielle Hunter Wants To Get Banged Hired By Donald Trump

Filed under: TV NewsDonald TrumpJohn EdwardsReality TV

Rielle Hunter wants to go on celebrity apprentice

Rielle Hunter's dreams of becoming the J.K. Rowling of non-fiction didn't really pan out after her book, What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me, only sold somewhere around 6,000 copies.

After facing criticism during every major media appearance for bashing John Edwards' deceased wife in the memoir, the infamous mistress wants to turn her reputation around.

Although it seems like the public's mind has been made up, Rielle wants to turn to Donald Trump for help!

Sources are saying that the controversial blond wants to appear on Celebrity Apprentice and explained:

"Rielle admires Donald Trump and says that if he could turn villains like Real HousewivesNeNe Leaks and Teresa Giudice into lovable TV personalities, then maybe he could do the same for her. Rielle’s reputation is pretty much mud in the public eye, but she’s delusional enough to think she can turn that around. And the truth is that if anyone can make Rielle Hunter likable, it’s Donald Trump.”

If Trump doesn't want Mz. Hunter, she'll settle for Dancing with the Stars or The Bachelorette too. We're not so sure those shows will settle for her though.

Did Rick Santorum Almost Call Barack Obama The N-Word!?

Filed under: Oops!PolitikBarack Obama

Wow. Just…wow.

During a speech in Wisconsin on Tuesday, Rick Santorum stumbled over a few words while casually bashing Barack Obama and it SOUNDS like he almost let a very, very, VERY bad word slip out!

Becoming a little tongue tied, the Republican presidential candidate stuttered out:

"We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like. The anti-war government ni, uh, the, uh, America was a source for."

We won't say he WAS about to call the President of the United States a racial slur, but it sounds AWFULLY suspect!

Check out the video clip above to hear his words for yourself and let us know if U think Santorum almost dropped the N-bomb!

Greg Walden Facebook Protection Block

Seriously???

Republicans just put a STOP to an amendment that would essentially block employers from forcing Facebook passwords from employees!

Democratic Senators Blumenthal and Schumer as well as other Dems have been trying to offer a legislation to prevent our privacy from being invaded.

Even Facebook ITSELF thinks the practice is against their privacy policy!

Democratic Representative Ed Perlmutter argues:

Former Marine Wants To Adopt Her Retired Military Dog

Filed under: InspirationDogAmazing

Megan Levy is a former marine with two tours of Iraq under her belt.

She became a handler for bomb sniffing dogs.

But when she retired, her dog, Rex, didn't.

After serving some more, Rex eventually came down with a condition that would lead to him having to be put to sleep if he couldn't be adopted.

So Megan has been fighting through the bureaucracy and red tape to try and get her dog to her.

Due to the power of this story (and the fact she received a purple heart) a senator, the owner of the Yankees and many others have stepped in to try and get her dog to her.

So amazing!
