Who Made the Dogs Shout?!

michael_vick_1.jpgI have so much to say about Atlanta Falcons’ quarterback Michael Vick and the federal indictment against him, that I can’t say anything right now. It’s going to take some time to figure out how to express my feelings without including countless expletives and my fantasies of slamming him to the ground repeatedly, before electrocuting him while simultaneously hanging him.

I can say that I’m an Atlanta Falcons fan but, as long as Michael Vick is on the roster, I cannot and will not support the team. There is no way I could go down to the Georgia Dome and cheer on a team led by such a piece of shit redneck, then return home to my dogs. Especially since one of them, Delilah, is a pit bull. Oh yeah, she’s dangerous too. Just look at the way she treats her little sister Polly Jean…

Tammy Faye Messner — R.I.P.

If you saw her on Larry King Thursday night — all 65 pounds of her — it probably wasn’t surprising to find out that Tammy Faye Messner died Friday morning, after a lengthy battle with inoperable cancer.

I’m sure some people will make some lame makeup jokes and say that she was just a loony bible thumper who milked millions out of PTL Club followers. But, if you’ve ever seen the documentary ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye,’ you know that there was another side of the story and much more to Tammy Faye. Just check out this clip, which explains how Jerry Falwell manipulated the PTL situation. (Yes, I know it’s hard to believe that Jerry Falwell could ever do something shady).

Something more telling about the character of Tammy Faye was her support of the gay community. While most “Christians” still like to think that homosexuals are brain-damaged sinners, Tammy Faye was far from judgmental. On PTL in 1981, she interviewed a gay man stricken with AIDS. During the interview, she didn’t wag her finger but instead opened her arms. Can you imagine a religious “leader” doing that today, 26 years later? Do you think James Dobson and his Focus on the Family drones would do such a thing? She was not perfect, but I’ll still be pouring out some coffee this morning for Tammy Faye Messner.
