In this conversation with KNUS last week, Tancredo says it's not what gay people do that bothers him. He says he doesn't care. But he does have a problem with gay people forcing hetero people, like him, to break their religious convictions in order to respect, include, or accommodate gays.

Is it too much to ask book-loving Boyles or gun-loving Antkow to inform someone like Herpin, before he enters the Colorado Senate, about what the Small Arms Treaty would actually do.

Jason Salzman | Posted 04.24.2013 | Denver
Jason Salzman

You'd think KHOW's Peter Boyles, who's probably the leading birther talk-show host in America, would at least stop and say 'thank you' when a state senator tips his hat to Boyles' relentless efforts to expose President Obama's Social Security number as belonging to another man.
