It’s Tuesday, the day before the day before Thanksgiving, and today I’m very thankful that I won’t be traveling very far. The weather is lousy, flights are being cancelled left and right, the roads will be a mess. Yes, for once I’m thankful that I’ll be here in FloriDUH.
Actually, I will be on the road for about an hour in each direction tomorrow afternoon, heading up to West Palm Beach to Randi Rhodes’ studio to guest host her show, but more about that tomorrow…
This morning, I spent the first hour of the show talking about some news stories I found fascinating…
For instance, the Catholic League needs a sense of humor. Apparently Dan Savage’s appearance Friday night on Real Time with Bill Maher was the final straw for the Catholic League’s Bill Donahue, who wrote a letter to HBO’s parent company demanding that they cancel the program!
The board of directors at Time Warner cannot distance themselves from Bill Maher any longer. On Friday night, Maher teed up Dan Savage, another anti-Catholic bigot. What happened was particularly vicious.
Maher commented on gay couples who adopt children, alleging that a Hawaiian bishop said these kids had a greater chance of committing suicide. Here is how Savage responded: “That’s total bulls***. He’s confusing children of gay parents with children who are raped by Catholic priests. Sorry, I am just done being lectured about children and their safety by Catholic-f***ing bishops, priests, cardinals.” Shortly thereafter, Savage again remarked about “kiddie-f***ing Catholic priests.”
