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.
