“If you removed all of the homosexuals and homosexual influence from what is generally regarded as American culture, you'd pretty much be left with 'Let's Make a Deal.'”

Quote of the Day
"My friend Anderson Cooper is the scion of one of America's great shipping and railroad families, the Vanderbilts. He's covered the military coup and eventual unseating of the democratically elected (and albeit bat-shit crazy) Hatian president Jean-Betrand Aristide. He's covered the small wars in Africa that use children as slave soldiers. He knows more about the women of The Real Housewives than perhaps even I do. He's covered the seemingly endless large wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. And by 'covered,' I mean he's really gone and covered them--with a security detail and without; embedded with troops and unilaterally--not from the relative safety of the Green Zone in Baghdad or the international zone in Kabul. He's sat down with despots in countries like Somalia, covered the atroclities in the Balkans and Burma. He also happens to be gay.
Funny thing, that...."
