SSDP's Aaron Houston does a great job infusing some sanity into the conversation, but Allen's wild ranting and bizarre closing remarks completely stole the show.

When our opposition begins putting people like this on stage, you start to get the feeling that it's just a matter of time before they get swept up in some grand fiasco of their own making. The leaders of the anti-gay movement keep getting caught in awesome gay situations, and I can only imagine what some of these anti-drug zealots are up to when they're not busy trying to scare the crap out of everyone.

Although, I suppose it would be pretty hard to top this.
