Freddie Goes to Hollywood: Film on Fred Karger's Openly Gay GOP Presidential Bid Nears
"He is the gay bogeyman of the GOP presidential race," one pundit says of Fred Karger in the flick.

A documentary about a Laguna Beach man's historic campaign as the first openly gay candidate to ever run for president from either major political party gets its Hollywood closeup soon.

In Fred Karger's Presidential Run, GOP Stands for Gay Old Party

Filmmaker John Fitzgerald Keitel spent two years following Fred Karger, who began seeking the Republican Party nomination for president in March 2010. The hour-long Fred, which premiered in New Hampshire in April, has a July 17 screening date in Hollywood, although the actual theater has not yet been announced.

The film follows Laguna Beach's Karger from New Hampshire to Iowa State Fair, and along the way "the onetime Republican hatchet man" (as R. Scott Moxley called him in his excellent Weekly cover story from the campaign trail that is linked above) takes on Fox News and Mitt Romney.

"You'll see exactly how Fred fights for inclusion in the debates, takes on his opponents and campaigns to let lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans know that anything is possible," reads the description on, which is where you should go for updates on the project (including, fingers crossed, an OC screening date).

A super-gay GOP candidate would be super-fun to watch as GOP heads exploded.

Yeah, but it still puzzles me why any gay person would affiliate themselves in any way with the GOP.

Because there was a time when the religious zealots, the American Taliban, did NOT run the party.  A gay candidate could actually save the GOP and return it to fiscal conservatism.

Why don't you simply cry "uncle" and admit that intellectually and philosophically you just don't have the tools to compete.

"knuckle-dragging, misogynist neanderthal" 

Is that how radical feminist loons see anyone who has the audacity to disagree with them (especially males)?

No, I only feel that way about men who display a clear hatred for women and are especially hostile to those who refuse to be treated like doormats. You can go back to banging rocks together now.

From the Fistingblues archive of idiocy and shame:

Fat, stupid, ugly = man-hating bull-dyke.

Fat, stupid and ugly.  The bull-dyke trifecta.

Fat-assed, man-hating bull-dyke DOES NOT equate to "good American.

The mutt is a fat-assed, man-hating bull-dyke

Is that what they taught in bull-dyke school today?

Overbearing, bombastic, big-mouthed, butt-ugly, bull-dyke bitch.

Wow, a fucking cross-dressing she-male and an obese, butt ugly bull-dyke.

So mutt, besides being an obese, lazy, stupid and ugly bull-dyke, 

Stupid fucking bull-dyke.

Sorry fatso, I'm the wrong gender to be "your little tuna-tasting, rug-munching, crack-snacking, muff-diving, bull-dyke diddling bitch.

Why would ANYONE be interested in you?  You can't even get women to touch your tuna.  Skanky bull-dyke that you are.

That bull (dyke) would buck your ass off.

The mutt is a fat-asses,man-hating, muff-diving,rug-munching, tuna tickling, stinky old bull dyke.

The mutt is bitter because she "got ugly early" and then she got fat  and then no male would have her so she turned bull-dyke.

Seriously, any 300 pound, butt ugly, drooling bull-dyke is going to draw attention.

WOW!!!      Delirious, delusional and dumb as fuck.    Rug munching is making you crazy."

The  mutt is too stupid to know she is stupid.... fat, ugly, stupid,  man-hating bull-dyke that she is
