Election Night 2012: Latino Gay Contraception
I do not have cable TV, so I spent Election Night following the election news and chatter on Twitter. There was lots of foolishness, and lots and lots of humbug, on there, but this, readers, may be the best tweet of the night, maybe even the best tweet of 2012.
From junior bulldog Luke Russert (who, by his own admission, has “[b]een sweating it out in the streets of a runaway American dream since 1985”), I offer you this bit of Internet political comedy gold, readers:
Who stands up in the #GOP and says #Latino Gay contraception okay? Jeb Bush? It’s not a profile in courage now it’s common sense.

Thanks are due to Alex Pareene, who has the presence of mind and the perspicacity to recognize genius when he sees it.
