On ex-altar boys, marriage, blah blah blah


From the Youngstown Vindicator, via the Plain Dealer:

"(I am) saddened that the work that I have done to feed the poor, clothe the naked, help cure the sick and to bring an end to the death penalty has fallen on deaf ears.  I guess being an altar boy for six years didn't qualify me for dispensation." - State Rep.  Robert Hagan (D-Youngstown),  after learning that his invitation to be the commencement speaker  at a Catholic  nursing school had been rescinded by Bishop  George V. Murry because Hagan supports abortion rights.

"We've arrived at a point where the president of the United States is going to lead a war on traditional marriage" - Traditional marriage authority Rush Limbaugh, having been married four times himself.

"I'm sorry, I made a mistake and it won't happen again." - King Juan Carlos of Spain, recovering from a fractured hip suffered when he  fell off an elephant  while  hunting in Botswana.

"This is the first time that George Clooney has ever been photo-shopped out of a picture.  Never happened before, never happen again." - President Obama at a Hollywood fund-raiser with Clooney at his side, quipping that Clooney had been  taken out of the Hope poster used by the Obama campaign in 2008.

Leave it to good ol' Rush to remind us again of the hypocrisy of right-wing blabbermouths.
