Rep. Jay Love and Perez Hilton are today's recipients of the "I Wish Stupid Hurt' Award

From the Montgomery Advertiser

State Rep. Jay Love, R-Mont­gomery, has drafted a resolution supporting Miss California USA, who was criticized for say­ing she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Miss California Carrie Prejean was asked during the Miss USA 2009 Pageant on Sunday if she supported legalizing gay marriage. Celebrity gossip blog­ger Perez Hilton, who is gay and was a judge at the competition, asked the question.

"I think it's great Americans are able to choose one or the oth­er," Prejean said. "We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite mar­riage. And you know what, in my country, in my family I think that I believe that a mar­riage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to any­body there, but that's how I was raised, and that's how I think it should be, between a man and a woman."

A few things

1. Miss California hasn't a clue what she is talking about. Gay marriage is not legal in the United States. It is legal in some states, which make up the United States, but not the entire country.

2. Although I disagree with Miss California on gay marriage I feel she shouldn't be criticized for expressing her opinion. I often tell people if you don't want my opinion then don't ask for it. Perez Hilton asked for it.

3. That was a really stupid question for Perez Hilton to ask. What was the point? I think he and Rep. Jay Love should share in the "I Wish Stupid Hurt" award.

4. Rep. Jay Love must have been beaten with a stupid stick when he was a kid....a really, really big stupid stick. Apparently it didn't hurt enough, huh? Here he is wasting Alabama taxpayer time and money while everything is falling down around every citizen in the state. Not to mention embarrassing the absolute hell out of us once again. Thanks Jay!

We have far, far more important issues in this state to worry about than a spat between an inarticulate, misinformed, bimbo, beauty queen and a gay entertainment blogger. Who really gives a fuck what either of them say about anything? And why the hell have 52 members of the Alabama House signed on in support of this trivial nonsense?

You know what? I think every member who has signed on in support is worthy of today's award. That includes a few that I know and like very much. Here's the list. I hope you will make it known to them what you think of their silliness.

3 By Representatives Love, Clouse, Williams, Bridges, Gipson,
4 Hammon, Johnson, McMillan, Hubbard, Boothe, Faust, Beck,
5 Shiver, Bentley, Galliher, Thomas (E), Greeson, McClendon,
6 Baker (A), Canfield, Allen, Collier, McCutcheon, Ward, Hill,
7 Morrow, Drake, Moore (P), Treadaway, Sanderford, Payne, Wood,
8 DeMarco, Lewis, Barton, Oden, Ison, Mask, Laird, Ball, Gaston,
9 Fincher, Davis, Grimes, Vance, Wren, Martin, Moore (M),
10 Robinson (O), Sherer, Fite and Letson

And for clarification...a few people have pointed out that 'stupid' does indeed hurt...unfortunately it often isn't the stupid people that are hurt by their own stupidity...its others. My wish for stupid to hurt means I wish that it caused physical discomfort to the person/persons being stupid...X10 for those who are willfully stupid (see those mentioned above).

I think it just goes to show what our Representatives are really concerned with.

I just wish that Jay Love was the only clown in the multi-ring circus we know as the Alabama Legislature.

Do you know what the final count was? Did everyone in the house vote for it?

Loretta Nall said...

The only count I saw yesterday was 51, mostly Republicans with a few Democrats thrown in for good measure.

Sadly it passed the House today on a voice vote which means there is no record of who voted which way. I'm beginning to think voice votes shouldn't be allowed. We have a right to know about every vote cast by every member of the House and Senate.

Perez Hilton made an awfully quick transition from respectable pageant judge to vindictive media beast

In my experience, the religious right has an unholy interest in how other people choose to employ their plumbing. Don't they know the difference between righteous and self-righteous???
