Last Friday MSNBC host Martin Bashir spoke a harsh truth about Sarah Palin in response to her remarks comparing the national debt to slavery. It’s well-known Sara Palin is just one small thump to the head from being institutionalized, and Bashir took the bait.

True to his word, Rafael Correa, Ecuador’s newly re-elected President, apologized to the LGBT community for using homophobic language a second time during his victory speech.
It all started last year, July 28th, when Correa read a reader’s comment on El Commercio’s Facebook page repeatedly calling the president a fag: “The fag thought that faggotry was part of the Olympic games and thought he could bring a gold medal in homosexuality – which is his strength… Degenerate fag.” (As you can tell, this reader was quite articulate.)
Correa later responded to the comment in kind: “If anyone knows this gentleman let me know. And I’ll invite him and only him to tell me these vicious things face to face. To see who’s the real fag.”
