Solomon: Obama Wants to Be a Drag Queen

Stan Solomon, Alan Keyes’ favorite wingnut radio host, had Phyllis Schlafly on his show and launched into a bigoted, misogynist tirade claiming that President Obama is a “wussy guy who throws a ball like a girl,” is gay and wishes he could be a drag queen. Schlafly’s gay son could not be reached for comment.

    I just googled up some pictures of Stan Solomon and he looks pretty f’in macho. Somewhere between Ted Nugent and Chuck Norris (but closer to the Nugent end of the spectrum) – I wonder how good his throwing arm is?

  2. Zinc Avenger (Sarcasm Tags 3.0 Compliant):

    Did he get a cooties shot before he let Phyllis Schlafly into the studio?

  3. lldayo:

    I hope Obama challenges him to a throwing contest and completely destroys him!

  4. voidhawk:

    Yeah, because the measure of a man – particularly a politician – is how physically strong they are…

  5. Modusoperandi:

    YOU KNOW THEYRE RIGHT ED BRAYTON! OBAMAS A GIRLY GIRL MAN. THE ONLY MEN THAT DESERVE RESPECT ARE REAL MANLY MAN MEN, LIKE US!

  6. slc1:

    I find that hilarious. During the run up to the 2008 campaign when Obama went on his world wide tour, he was spotted by a reporter in Germany working out in a gym and doing forearm curls with 75 pound barbells. He is also a pretty good shot on the basketball court as there are youtube videos showing him canning shots from beyond the 3 point line. Sounds pretty manly to me.

  7. Taz:

    All I can say in regards to Stan Solomon and “Chief” Steve Davis is that their matches shirts are simply divine. I wonder if they share a closet?

  8. matty1:

    You have to admit politics would be more entertaining if issues were settled by a throwing contest, although personally I’m holding out for jelly wrestling.

  9. Taz:

    Also, I’d like to see any random female college pitcher whip one at Stan’s head. I’m not really wishing him any harm, right? She’d just be “throwing like a girl”.

  10. Bronze Dog:

    As time goes on, I find it easier and easier to see wingnuts and their pundits as spoiled children trying to play at being grown-up and doing it badly. In their efforts to depict their male opponents as “weak” with assertions about such trivia as throwing style, they expose their inherent weakness of character. The fact that most of these sorts of insults and insinuations were typically performed as schoolyard taunts (and in no other context) when I was growing up doesn’t help their case. My parents and teachers raised me properly.

    I’d suggest a badger-tossing contest, except that the badger couldn’t consent to it.

  12. kemist, Dark Lord of the Sith:

    And he has cooties.

    How old is that guy, 6 ? And what’s next, I wonder? A “yo mama so fat” contest, maybe.

    “I’d suggest a badger-tossing contest, except that the badger couldn’t consent to it.”

    A honey badger would say “bring it on”. And rip apart any puny primate trying to pick it up for a throw. Seriously, those badgers eat cobras!

    @Marcus Ranum #11

    Badgers?

    Well, yeah. That’s why a badger tossing contest is such a good test of machismo. Pretty much anyone who can catch one and toss it back wins.
