Worst host ever, but they loved her in the fly over states.
Dumb ass, even if we all never fuck again the religious right will still hate us and try to repress us. What an awful silly man.

Former soldier and gay rights campaigner James Wharton has said that gay saunas are standing in the way of equality and should be shut down.
Writing in Winq magazine, which launched in the UK last month, the soldier, who served alongside Prince Harry in the Household Cavalry, said that saunas were “thorns in our side that mark our community as different for the wrong reasons”.
He said: “If we don’t, we feed the haters and we hand the bigots who remain a vocal minority ammunition with which to attack us”
“For me as a gay man, the notion that there exist within our communities a series of places that actively promote the convening of gay men for participation in sex of shades various and in groups of all sizes rather revolts me – and I’ve been round the block a few times, believe me.
“I’m no prude, not even close, but the days when we gathered in clandestine fashion for the want of a network or a sexual outlet are surely long gone.”
Campaigner Peter Tatchell told the Independent: “It would be very wrong if the gay community became proscriptive and moralistic over consenting adult behaviour.
“Plenty of gay and bisexual men use saunas without resorting to drugs or unsafe sex. A small minority may act recklessly and that should be challenged but it would be wrong to penalise the majority attitudes.”
