Top Internet Videos 2008

Gab's next selection for Top Internet video of 2008 is The Victory Funds response to Oklahoma state representative Sally Kern's shocking comments comparing gays to terrorists.

"The homosexual agenda is destroying this nation, it's just a fact. I honestly think it is the biggest threat to this nation, a bigger threat than terrorism or Islam," Kern is quoted as saying to a group of 50... she thought no one was listening!

Watch the eloquent response from The Victory Fund:



Gab should note that after Kern's statement was made known many posts appeared on Internet blogs claiming her son, Jesse Kern, was gay. Jesse disputed those reports and told the Tulsa World "I practice celibacy to give to my God."

Watch Ellen DeGeneres call Sally Kern:

Palin Tolerates Gays

SNL took some shots at the vice-presidential candidates this weekend following Sarah Palin and Joe Biden's debate last week.

Queen Latifah playing debate moderator Gwen Ifill asked Tina Fey (Sarah Palin) and Jason Sudeikis (Joe Biden) a series of questions. Hitting on Palin's gay "tolerance" comment from the actual debate, Fey's SNL take went like this:

"...Don't think I don't tolerate gay people. Because I do, I tolerate them with all my heart. And I know quite a few, too. Not personally, but I know of them. I've seen Ellen. Oh and there was this one girl on my basketball team, she wasn't officially a gay, but you know, we were pretty sure."

Watch the SNL clip:



Both vice-presidential hopefuls agreed they do not support same-sex marriage during last week's debate.
