Deja Vu All Over Again24 June, 2009
This story has gotten old. An asshat who has declared that gays enjoying the same rights as other humans will destroy the sanctity of marriage. An asshat who has played the morality card multiple times. An asshat who wants to turn down most of the stimulus money heading for his state to make political points in the hopes of being the GOP candidate in 2012. An asshat who then gets caught with his pants down. No, not McCain. No, not Gingrich, either. No, not Ensign. Not Foley. Damn, there have been a lot of them.
I’ll narrow it down. He told his wife, aides and security detail that he was going hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Then he went to Venezuela to drive along the seashore. Sorry, to meet his mistress. He admitted it today.
And, of course, Faux News was all over it (from Crooks & Liars):
Note down at the bottom. I’m sure it is an oversight. Just like when they labeled John McCain as a Democrat, Arlen Spector as a Democrat (when he was still a Republican!) and Mark Foley as a Democrat. Just to be fair, they also listed a Democratic strategist as Bush’s head of FEMA, which is understandable as his name happened to be Michael Brown, and Brown is such an unusual name. They also announced Rep. William Jefferson’s indictment using footage of Congressman John Conyers. So I guess this is par for the course.
We all know, though, who is really to blame: Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Vermont. They allowed those gays to get married. Which is destroying the sanctity of marriage. Which is why Gingrich Ensign Reagan McCain Sanford hooked up with his Argentine mistress about eight years ago.
It’s okay, though. He’s a Christian so he’ll be forgiven.
