Accuracy in Media calls for Congress to investigate Obama admin for ‘un-American activities’

Gun up the DeLorean and let’s take a ride in the time machine to the 1950s, courtesy of Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid.

Kincaid suggests establishing in the new Congress a “House Internal Security Committee,” which sounds curiously like the (House Un-American Activities Committee). Yes, the fringe right has officially called for the raising of Zombie Senator Joseph McCarthy to take care of Nazi Muslim Socialist Humanist Black Panther influences that have taken over our government. (via Right Wing Watch):

Some conservatives have belatedly discovered that Obama has socialist and anti-colonial views. But that is not even half the story. The most important part of the story remains to be investigated by the FBI and, hopefully, by a new House Internal Security Committee. Re-establishment of this committee will demonstrate that the new Congress means business and that it won’t resort to politics as usual and compromise.

All of this requires that the new Congress takes its responsibilities seriously, not only on fiscal issues, but on matters involving the national security and moral integrity of the United States. The liberals will raise a hue and cry, and some conservatives may balk, but it is mandatory and necessary to begin addressing what an old congressional committee used to call “un-American activities” at the highest levels of the U.S. Government.

Perhaps while they are at it, they can call in McCarthy’s gay self-loathing BFF Zombie Roy Cohn to complete the deal.

So who will take on the McCarthy and Cohn roles in the new Congress if Kincaid’s idea takes flight?

Will gay bird study lead to better gaydar?

Gay ibises

Of all the gay-related stories I’ve seen recently, this one is my favorite.

Increased exposure to mercury may cause homosexuality in ibises, according to a new study done at the University of Florida, in Gainesville, not South Beach. The study was published in Nature.

Male ibises that consumed toxic methylmercury were more likely to mate with other males. As the amount of mercury exposure increased, so did the same-sex pairings.

The researcher made clear no assumptions should be made about people.

Peter Frederick, a University of Florida ecologist involved in the study, said, “People will read this and immediately jump to the conclusion that humans eating mercury are going to be gay. I want to be very explicit that this study has nothing to say about that.”

But I wonder. Mercury is the substance in thermometers. I’ve always thought of gaydar as a sort of thermometer and I wonder if those of us with more mercury can just take the temperature of those around us with just a little more accuracy than those with less. I think it’s worth studying.
