Why bother?

If these are the best "celebrities" that the homophobes can come up with to bolster their popularity, why do they even bother:

WHO:
• Senator Rick Santorum
• Darrell Green (Green played for the Washington Redskins for twenty years, earning seven trips to the Pro-• Bowl. Once the fastest man in the NFL, he retired as the oldest defensive back ever in the NFL)
• Dean Jones (Jones was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 1971, and is known chiefly as one of Disney ' s top stars in the 1960s and 1970s. He is also known for his leading role in " Herbie the Love Bug. ")
• Marvin Winans (Marvin is a member of the gospel group The Winans, who are Grammy, Dove and Stellar award-winners. He is also pastor of a church in Detroit, Michigan.)
• Pat Boone (Boone was the second most-popular singer in the United States in the 1950s - second only to Elvis Presley. He's recognized by Billboard Magazine as the #10 rock recording artist in history.)


A Senator doesn't count, duh. The next three couldn't even get a spot on "The Surreal Life". And Pat Boone!
There's no nice way to say this. Pat Boone built his career on racism--he made rock music for white kids whose parents wouldn't let them buy albums from black artists. I guess now that's not really an issue anymore, he's hoping to perk his career up with an injection of the fashionable bigotry of the new century: homophobia.

And did you see the sportscoat Boone was wearing? I guess this means that Santorum is officially against Man-On-Shaggy-D.A.-action.

That picture is definitely getting a caption from me later on...
