Closeted Countdown: Secret Donors, The Hunger Games, and Trump's "Very Impressive" Penis?

I've long believed that the only thing that could motivate someone to dedicate their lives to homophobia is deep self-loathing. So start the countdown timer until these folks get caught with a gay prostitute:
  • I've discussed before how the leading anti-gay marriage organization the National Organization for Marriage has been trying for years to keep the names of their donors secret.  And now we know the name of at least one of those bigots: Mitt Romney.  So tell me again how he's not one of those 'social conservative nuts' like Rick Santorum...
  • So it's not exactly news, but Pat Robertson thinks that homosexuality is caused by "demonic possession." Yawn.
  • The Hunger Games are a series of books (and now movies) about a wealthy elite forcing poor children to fight to the death for their amusement until a literal class war breaks out.  Or if you're Religious Right leader James Robinson, a metaphor for how marriage equality will lead to slavery.
  • Donald Trump disqualified a transgendered woman from the Miss Universe contest (a move that even Bill O'Reilly of all people was disgusted by).  When Gloria Allred held a press conference with a woman and pointed out that no one has ever asked Trump to prove he's a man, he responded by saying, “I think Gloria would be very very impressed with [my penis].”  Now of course the reason this is news is because Romney is proud to have Trump's endorsement, but I'd also just like to say if you feel compelled to go on national television to announce how "very very impressive" your penis is, you're overcompensating for something.
