Ellen DeGeneres Calls GOP Rep Who Said Gays Are "Bigger Threat" Than Terrorism [VIDEO]

Too bad she didn't get through since Sally's voicemail is full. (PageOneQ):

"I feel like there's some misinformation going on here," Ellen said after playing clips of the speech, "and--I think I need to call her."
The automated voice mail system indicated that Kern's inbox was full.
"I bet!" Ellen responds out loud, before opting instead to leave a message for the legislator via television broadcast.
"Hi! It's Ellen DeGeneres," she opens. "The gay one."
The video is to your right.


Also, while on Kern's nonsense, folks have been talking about this Queerty post: Sally Kern Scrubs Gay Son? I have no idea whether her son is gay - absent him coming forward and saying something, there's no way to know. If that's the case, no wonder this fundnut bigot is going buckwild with the bigotry. She's another Alan Keyes. pam ::
