Ann Coulter In West Hollywood

Ann Coulter: On the Gay Circuit in West Hollywood

We had dinner last night at Murano, a new West Hollywood restaurant, owned by gay circuit party promoter Jeffrey Sanker, and lesbian night club owners Robin Gans and Sandy Sachs. It's a visually stunning space, straight lines, whites and reds accented by brilliant Murano glass chandeliers (hence the name of the restaurant). It's right at home within eyeshot of West Hollywood's Pacific Design Center, clearly appealing in a neighborhood of gay clubs, bars and restaurants.

Toward the end of dinner, one of my companions insisted that the painfully thin, emotive, long blond haired thing in a small black dress with nearly exposed bosoms was none other than Ann Coulter. I did not believe him. Why would Ann Coulter, who hates homosexuals, go to dinner at gay ground zero? Why would she spend her hard earned gay-bashing royalties to enrich Jeffrey Sanker and otherwise support gay-owned businesses?

But sure enough, he was right. I could not tell if she was dining with people she hates or just demonstrating that she's a fraud who says whatever she must to sell books so that she can live the gay urban lifestyle. Based on her behavior last night, I am sure it is the latter, although based on her table mates, it could be both.

Remember Ann Coulter on John Edwards and homosexuals?

"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm - so, kind of at an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards, so I think I'll just conclude here and take your questions."

Now, the last I checked, most gay people, including me, do not think the term "faggot" is endearing.


Since it was the weekend before Halloween, my friends and I thought it was just a costume! If only we'd known. Darn. I would have had a few choice words for her.

Obama supporter: 'God delivered me from homosexuality'

COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) — The controversial Gospel singer at the center of a gay and lesbian backlash against Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign struck back at his critics Sunday night, saying that he has been "vilified" and declaring that "God delivered me from homosexuality."

McClurkin has said that homosexuality is a choice and that he overcame homosexual desires through prayer, comments that drew fire from gay and lesbian activists and caught the Obama campaign, which has been using faith to reach out to African-American voters, off guard.

"Don't call me a bigot or anti-gay, when I have been touched by the same feelings," McClurkin went on. "When I have suffered with the same feelings. Don't call me a homophobe, when I love everybody … Don't tell me that I stand up and I say vile words against the gay community because I don't. I don't speak against the homosexual. I tell you that God delivered me from homosexuality."


I'm thinking that about does it for Obama's campaign.

Troy Calendar "The Men of 'Troy'"

I just finished a series of images for a "Troy" calendar for 2008. It's basically a cheesy, hunky-boy calendar along the lines of those beef-cake images from the 50's and 60's. Here's a little preview. It's available online now at the "Troy Store" at http://www.cafepress.com/troycomics












Nick is our boy for Feb.


















Jorge is yours for August.



















And Troy is October!

Troy: The Animated Cartoon


An animated short based on my comic strip. Back in January of '07, I was approached by a production company about doing a series of animated shorts. This was done as a "tease", they wanted to see how the series might look. This is the very first scene from the first episode of a ten part series. The sound is just a "scratch" or rough track. Yes, all the voices are me. I eventually intended to get "real" actors for the rest of the characters. They really liked what they saw, but I had to say no over money issues. There wasn't enough! My baby don't come cheap. But here it is.

I'm currently shopping it around, looking to find a new production company that will do it "right". Hopefully, the rest of the series will get to see the light of day.
