Comment of the Day: Michael Berry's Bashing of Gay-Bashing
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We wrote about KTRH host Michael Berry finally commenting on his alleged hit-and-run outside a gay bar. Berry, a rightwinger, blasted gay-bashers and said he had never been one on his show.
At least one reader wasn't buying all of that.
He doesn't have to call it bashing if he wants, I guess, but he frequently cracks jokes about gay people using gerbils for sex. He was relentless when Barney Frank visited Houston. He also makes statements like, "If you pick a truck on gas mileage, you are gay."
I've never been to TC's, but I have heard from several that it has a bad reputation in the gay community for being a sleazy place.
