kronicfeld: BravadoGT: He's NINETY.

And we still let him serve in Congress. Pathetic.

I told him you said that and he's coming for you.
 Could you please stay still for the next week and a half.

He's NINETY.  They didn't have gays back in his time.  They were just "fops" or "dandies"

"And before I went into that wrong door I inadvertently dressed myself in a darkened room, which is why I am wearing chaps, pink pixie wings, body glitter and have the words 'SPERM DUMP' blearily lipsticked on my cheeks. Nothing to see here!"

Apparently, he entered the wrong door.  I guess during his entire lifetime he's been playing it off as accidentally entering the wrong door.

All anti-gay Conservatives are homosexual to their very core.  They just hate themselves.  Worse than other US conservatives, who hate the entire country.

Ralph Hall Lets His Hair Down," Hall noted: "I would just say that while I do have a good head of hair for a 90-year-old, I do not have the quantity of hair, nor the inclination, to let it down.

This is actually really funny for Conservative, and not mean spirited at all.

MisterRonbo: BMulligan: Oh FFS, get over yourself. "The struggles of today's youth?" Seriously? Do you really think you and your little friends are a different breed than all the generations before?

No you idiot - the costs have spiraled out of control.

I attended UC Berkeley from 1981 to 1986.  When I started, my fees as an in-state resident were about $1,050 a year. Minimum wage was $3.35 (although I don't remember any job paying less that $5 an hour). So my fees were 313 hours of work (pre-tax).  I worked about 30 hours a week, I could pay my fees with less than three months wages

Today that same school is $13,200 plus a $1,300 "health insurance fee".  So, $14,500. Minimum wage is $8.00. So that's 1,812 hours of work. To pay your fees for one year at that same 30 hours a week takes 14 months of work.

Yes, it really is different for this generation. It isn't that they have changed, its that the costs have gone through the roof.

Well, SOMEONE has to pay for Bush's war in Iraq. Why shouldn't it be the generation that will benefit the most from the peace and security?

/if we can't have term limits, can we at least have a freaking mandatory retirement age?

Hey, being 90-years old doesn't disqualify him. It's not like being a Republican in the House of Representatives is particularly demanding, although I imagine it's a lot like Groundhog Day for him with all those attempts to repeal Obamacare.

Many of the shocked attendees at the LGBT event seemed uncertain as to whether Hall had intentionally come to support their cause or if he was just lost.

The shock of the attendees regarding Hall's presence was evidenced on Twitter, as many wondered whether or not he was there on purpose or if he actually was just lost.

Okay, there's still one more way you could write that.

Sure. He wants them to think he's just old, and not really looking to get gang banged by a line of young black men.

the longtime conservative quickly left the premises - that is, as quickly as a 90-year-old can physically leave a premises

He probably ran straight to his doctor for a checkup to make sure he hadn't caught the gay.
