Yesterday I reported on President Bush's White House speech in support of the anti-gay marriage scam called the Marriage Protection Amendment, and how the NY Post said that a Bush pal told Newsweek that the president is using this purely as a political ploy, and couldn't "give a shit" about whether gays marry or not. That Bush is politicizing the issue, or that he's lying about it, is surely enough to anger and frustrate. But after an entire day of hearing about the speech, and seeing Bush repeatedly on network and cable news pandering to the right wing Christian conservative freaks, I'm now seething over this criminal, corrupt and ammoral administration.
The hypocrisy is enough to make you gag. Back in the 90's, well-known Repuglican philanderers like Bob Barr, Bob Livingston, Henry Hyde and Newt Gingrich shoved their mistresses to the side just long enough to impeach Bill Clinton over his marital indescretions. Supposedly closeted gays like Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) and RNC chair Ken Mehlman discriminate against gays at every possible political turn. How about "Randy Randy" Cunningham, the Viagra-poppin' geriatric former congressman who cavorted in DC hotel suites with his Repuglican pals and a bevvy of prostitutes courtesy of GOP sycophant Brent Wilkes? And let's not forget male sex whore Jeff Gannon, who somehow managed to cop himself highly coveted White House press credentials, let alone a likely feel from some high-up Bushevik (or maybe the prez himself??). Or the countless congressmen and senators who are cheating on their wives with lobbyists, staffers and pages. Whatever happened to that wise old adage, "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones?"
I am disgusted by this hypocrisy, and by what's happening in our country today. By how the Repuglicans have used hatred and prejudice to divide and conquer and turn American against American for political purposes. I am sick and tired of the Bushevik monarchy's lies. The deception. The arrogance. The self-righteousness. The double-standards. Their do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do mantra. This is a gang that would make the Roman Emperor Tiberius proud.
The GOP had the unmitigated gall to send its press secretary, Tony SnowJob, before reporters Monday to arrogantly declare that those seeking to ban gay marriage are fighting for "civil rights." I thought gays fighting for civil rights was a civil rights issue. Pardon my confusion.
It's time we say to the Bush administration and to the Repuglican party, stop insulting us with this gay-marriage non-issue. Enough. We're mad as hell, and we're not gonna take it anymore. And you're gonna see that in the polls come November. Focus your time and energies on fixing what you broke in this country. End the damn war. Shore up homeland security. Bring down the debt. Get gas prices back to reasonable levels. Stop insulting our intelligence with this asinine campaign to distract voters from the real problems in this country. And stop using gays as your political pinatas. They are some of the brightest, most creative, caring and endearing people I've met in my life. You could learn from them. They are not the problem. You are. If you're so worried about the sanctity and preservation of your precious marriages, keep your roving dicks in your pants. This may come as a shock to you, but cheating on your wife will cause a lot more damage to your marriage than two gay dudes tying the knot up in Massachusettes.
