Jon Stewart on “Good ole Slippery Sodomy Slope Scalia” and his bff Miss Lindsey Graham

South Carolina (figures) Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, while sitting with Joe Lieberman and John McCain for a CNN interview, asked, in his gayest voice possible, why permitting gay marriage wouldn’t lead to polygamy too:

LINDSEY GRAHAM: I’ve been waiting to ask you this question.  If it’s based on love, can three people love each other… is it possible for three people to genuinely love each other and want to share their lives together?


Jon Stewart had an appropriate response:

JON STEWART: Oh my God.  Oh… oh my God!  No. No way. No way! Is Lindsey Graham about to propose to McCain and Lieberman?


Graham has denied rumors that he’s clearly a closet case.  NYT in 2010:

Less tame are the blogosphere monikers, like “Miss Lindsey,” that play off of Graham’s never-married status. During a South Carolina Tea Party rally this spring, one speaker created an uproar by postulating that Graham supported a guest-worker program out of fear that the Democrats might otherwise expose his homosexuality. (Graham smirked when I brought this up. “Like maybe I’m having a clandestine affair with Ricky Martin,” he said. “I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ’em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.”)

Yeah, nothing gay about that answer.

Here’s Jon Stewart on this, and Republican Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s latest anti-gay hate speech, who recently equated being gay with murder.  (I also reported, yesterday, that Scalia’s son, Paul, works for a Catholic “we can cure gays!” outfit.)

    Slippery Slope is one of the easiest attacks to refute. And ironically, Scalia has unwittingly provided the argument in his famous dissent. I have a feeling he is going to hear it too.

  2. Sweetie says:

    There are masculine gay men, like Ian Roberts. There are feminine hetero men.

    And, people overestimate their ability to pick out gay men, according to research.

    I will henceforth refer to LG as Huckleberry Closetcase. I stole that from someone at joemygod. (I only wish I were that clever!) Seriously, who does she think she’s kidding?

    Hello karmanot,

    I hope that Scalia gets the POINT!

  6. karmanot says:

    Come to think of it, ‘slippery slope’ bring up a rather disgusting image of Scalia and Graham.

  7. Butch1 says:

    I was thinking that they should have asked Mitt Romney to join in; he would have been a plethora of information considering his family tree is full of “loving polygamous relationships.”

  8. karmanot says:

    Lindsey O’Scarlett: “is it possible for three people to genuinely love each other and want to share their lives together?” Is this a trick Mormon question?

  9. karmanot says:

    God bless his lil’ cotton pick’un heart.

  10. karmanot says:

    And maybe a lace fan to stave off the vapors!

  11. FLL says:

    Throughout his question, Lindsey Graham’s head is tilted up (at an angle, God help us), and he gives us the hint of an affected smile, which I believe is called a “simper” in the South. But it gets better. After he finishes his question, he leaves his head lifted up at that angle… and then slowly closes his eyes. Will someone please get this man a hoop skirt and a parasol?

  12. tember2 says:

    I’m just astounded that that mincing queen of a senator is so shameless. Does he really think ANYONE thinks he’s straight?

  13. Mike_in_Houston says:

    And note the way Miss Graham coyly closes her eyes at the end of her BS question, as if she had just made the most clever legal argument ever…
    And it’s not just the “religious organization that doesn’t let its clergy marry or have families.” It’s also that organization that teaches boys to grow up to be men, and that doesn’t allow gays in any echelon of its membership.

  14. BeccaM says:

    Back in the 50s and 60s, they said that allowing interracial marriage was a slippery slope that would lead to legalized polygamy, bestiality, pedophilia and all kinds of other nasty things.

    Half a century later, we’re still waiting to see these happen. And so far, the only organized pedophilia racket seems to be a religious organization that doesn’t let its clergy marry or have families.
