New record for most utterances of words 'Barney Frank' to be set this weekend in Seattle

by Jeremy Hooper

  This weekend in Seattle, around 200 gay and lesbian national and world leaders are expected to gather at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel and Towers to discuss policy issues, strategize, and just generally enjoy a weekend of political gay nuttiness. Additionally, conference attendees will get their first taste of a "Coming-Out Tool Kit (view trailer)," a video project which will encourage closeted gay officials to be more open about their sexuality.

   While that is all happening indoors, Fred Phelps and his "fag-hating" brethren of Westboro Baptist have announced that they'll be outside the convention, or as they call it, "Leadership conference of the sodomite damned," with their patented blend of unbelievable signs and white-hot antipathy for homos, America, churches, elected officials, soldier's funerals, religious leaders, oxygen, the computer on which you are reading this, that table over there, the urine that I just released from my bladder -- basically the totality of existence outside the confines of their Kansas compound. In a "news release" decrying the weekend soiree (which you can find on their website), the Phelpseseseseseses say, and we quote, "You have allowed filthy fags & dykes led by such moral degenerates as Reps. Barney Frank & Tammy Baldwin to seize absolute control of America, as it was in the days of Lot."

And suddenly, our weekend plans of PS2, beer, and catching up on an arsleoad of Tivoed crap TV just seems lazy. Good luck, Victory Funders; break a leg, Westboro.
