Yesterday, President Obama spoke out against Russia's anti-gay legislation and, at the same time, rejected calls for an Olympics boycott by cheering on gay and lesbian athletes to defeat the homophobia via superior sportsmanship: “One thing I’m really looking forward to is maybe some gay and lesbian athletes bringing home the gold or silver or bronze, which i think would go a long way in rejecting the kind of attitudes were seeing there.

Jones would have a PhD in propaganda, if that were possible. But he has absolutely no ability to employ it- If anything, he just sounds dumber by the second when he tries actually using it.

Seriously… I felt it was time to start pointing that out.
