Why would someone on Limbaugh's show make that comment?

While I agree that being a Republican is a flaw, what exactly would you expect a character who is a lyricist for a musical to say?

Seems to fall perfectly in line with the character.

Hollywood portrays people as they are most of the time. If Republicans weren't by and large such total farktards, they wouldn't be portrayed as such.

Oh for fark's sake. I've never seen a bigger group of whiny, candy-ass-complainers in my life.

Shocker. Hey remember in Independence Day when the one guy says "I'm not Jewish" and Ian Malcolm's dad says "Nobody's perfect"? Remember the uproar that caused?

Neither do I.

Registering as a Republican is perfectly fine. It's voting for Republicans that's sick.

The "flaw" in question is being gay Republican. Not a general Republican, per se.

Please, at least get your manufactured outrage right.

I will concede your point, as you are an authority on things gay, but I would add that it is far better to be gay than to be a Republican.

Being both is right out!

I've voted for Republicans. I voted for both Tom Kean and Christie Whitman for NJ Gov. I've met both of them. And not once did they express their disgust of me or want to relegate me to second class citizen status. Funny how that works, no? ;-)

Gee, it's hard to see why a gay man and a woman might consider being a Republican a character flaw, given the GOP's war on both groups.

I worked with her on preserving the NJ Governor's School program. Not that I was beholden to her for that, but she's really a decent person. And consider her challengers were Florio and McGreevey.

It is a fictional character's remark concerning another fictional character. Surely a man is desperate who has so lowered his criteria for straw men.

That is not necessarily the case. It is funnier if the "Republican" part is the flaw. Not everything a character utters is intended to be serious.

Yes, yes, bunch of crybabies! It is just that said criticism seems to only go one direction and is, often, so transparent. Prime example is Mad Men writing in an aside on a phone call where Henry Francis says "Romney is a clown!" Of course he was speaking of Mitt Romney's father but it is just so obvious, jarring, and unnecessary. Have Francis pick up the phone and say "Obama? Son of a Kenyan economist? No way!" (which, granted, would make no sense) and see if it still fits the narrative.

Kean especially. Whitman got caught up with the Bush admin and had to take the fall for 9/11 sickness. So even though the admin threw her under the bus, that's going to be part of her legacy people will most remember.

name another state level pol from the time frame of mad men which would have an immediate name recognition tie in to modern audiences that would have been of the right general position to make sense in the context of the show.

Lolwut? The loudest voices in the Republican Party are indisputably a bunch of whining douchebags, but let's not go off the deep end and start believing in Hollywood portrayals of anything or anyone. Rejecting the Fox News version of reality in favor of Hollywood's is the equivalent of pulling your head out of one person's ass just so you can bury it colon-deep in someone else's. Either way you're still getting a narrow viewpoint that's full of sh*t.
 
2012-04-05 02:29:26 PM
These farknuts lack all nuance and understanding. The pill-popping and adultery are all being portrayed as negative, bad behavior. The gay Republican character has been portrayed very positively and is actually one of the few "good" guys on the show. He's funny, understanding, intelligent, caring, etc...in fact, the scene where the comment is made is really demonstrating a moment of clarity, that Tom is being judgmental and he's wrong. He ends up going to the fundraiser and nothing bad happens...but whatever.

Dear Professor Stupid,

There was a whole episode of Mad Men where they criticized JFK (the setting was the Nixon/Kennedy) election, up to and including calling out his "mob ties" and using dead voters in Chicago. Which is exceptionally cutting, especially when compared to tame comments like "Romney is a Clown."

Of course, you would know this if you had ever actually watched the show instead of repeating easily debunked talking points fed to you by your partisan overlords.

Love,
Everyone

NBC's "Smash," which revolves around the making of a musical, thinks being Republican is a weakness. At least that's what Julia, the adulteress who is the lyricist on the show, has to say when the musical's composer, Tom, mentions that his gay lover is a Republican.

A character who happens to be gay has issues with Republicans. Seems pretty fair to me.
 
2012-04-05 02:59:08 PM
I do, in fact, consider "being Republican" to be a serious character flaw.
 
2012-04-05 03:00:40 PM
Why can't Republicans be like the Republicans from the Old Republic in Star Wars? Instead of wasting all our time debating gay marriage and birth control, I bet we would all have lightsaber cheese knives by now.

It's okay to be gay and a Republican if you are very, very wealthy. That kind of wealth would insulate you from Republican anti-gay policies, and Republicans have devoted themselves to not only protecting the very, very wealthy, but to increasing their wealth at the expense of other Americans.

If you are gay and merely wealthy, or if you really are a fiscal conservative, there is no reason for you to be a Republican unless you are self-loathing or insane. By the way, the same goes for women. I get it if you are stinking rich (and a few hundred thousand a year is merely rich), but if you aren't and you vote Republican, there is something wrong with you. I am not buying the religion excuse. I am certainly not buying the farcical claim of fiscal conservatism. Maybe if you hate America, but then I wouldn't care for you anyway.

This was not always true, by the way. It was certainly not true of the party I grew up in, but it is reality now. And it will only get worse because the Republican Party is getting so crazy even W. will soon be considered a libby-libby-commie-atheist-lib.

I wouldn't call Republicanism a "flaw". I'd call it a deformity, or a disfigurement, or a retardation or something, but never a flaw. A flaw is a tiny snag in a sweater.

Mearen: mitchcumstein1: Oh for fark's sake. I've never seen a bigger group of whiny, candy-ass-complainers in my life.

No, we mean republicans.

Example, today republicans are jumping out of their chairs in shock and outrage over Obama's comments about activist judges. The president's implied threats are an attack on the seperation of powers and clearly part of his socialist, anti-democratic agenda.

Except every republican on all levels of state and federal government has been ranting on activist judges for the last decade, including actual threats of removing judges.

The only reason republicans have any issue with what Obama said, is he said it. The same words coming from Romney or Santorum would get praised.

So in what way are republicans not whiny, candy-assed complainers?

Sorry...all of your suggestions assume a malady that is mostly outside of the Republican's control. Unlike the debate over nature/nurture when it comes to homosexuality, it's been proven pretty conclusively that Republicans are assholes on purpose.

If you are gay and Republican, you have a flaw somewhere. Brain damage or some cognitive deficit at the very least.

Too true. That is why I voted for Sanatorum in the primaries, because I hate America and want to see it burn. It is really sad that the craziest candidate is not going to win.
