Republicans and gay people. They're quite the odd bedfellows. On the one hand, the Republican Party seems opposed to granting homosexual Americans anything other than some halfhearted lip service while they pound away at their rights. And, on the other, double entendre double entendre double entendre.
Now, with a Massachusetts Republican gubernatorial candidate choosing an openly gay homosexual as his running mate, we are tempted to consider whether this is the dawning of a new day in their relationship. Or is it just another one-off evening in an airport bathroom stall?
To better understand their long history together, let's take a look back over the past few years with The Daily Show…

I just wrote a really long essay about how much I disagree with this list of The Hottest (Lady) Elephants in the GOP Room that Jessica Strul put together for The Frisky, and not one of the points I made was that the very idea of the list was idiotic.
I'm too embarrassed to publish the entirety of what I wrote, so lemme just give you the Cliff's Notes version…
* Was "Hottest (Lady) Elephants" really the most appropriate or clever title they could come up with? And can we expect "Hottest Democrat (Lady) Asses" as a follow-up?
* Totally agree with Strul on Sarah Palin (#1) and Michelle Malkin (#7), despite how much I dislike their ideologies.
* Ann Coulter (#2) looks like a foot wearing a wig; that fact alone should have kept her off the list.
MaryLiz Cheney (#8) what? How? Why? Really? (Update: My mistake. It's Liz Cheney. Accidentally wrote the wrong name; my confusion still applies.)
* Michele Bachmann and Fox News' Megyn Kelly were robbed by Cheney and Coulter.
Well, that part of my life is over now, thankfully. And I'm only 13 percent stupider than when I started.
