The Stink of Pink

Looks like another Republican congressman enjoys a nibble from the other side of the loaf. Mark Foley, Bob Allen, Larry Craig...how many gay GOP congressmen are there? Geez Louise...I'm beginning to think that I could find most of the Republican caucus in Woody's on Saturday nights. Here's what the good senator had to say about it:
"At the time of this incident, I complained to the police that they were misconstruing my actions," he said. "I should have had the advice of counsel in resolving this matter. In hindsight, I should not have pled guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously."

Yeah, right...a member of the US Senate had no idea that pleading guilty to lewd behavior in a men's restroom might come back to haunt him later on. At least he didn't claim fears of a "stocky black man."

Hey, Bush and I agree!

I've been saying for years that Iraq is this generation's Vietnam, and now I hear that The Decider thinks so too. I'm so pleased we agree.

You've heard of Matt Sanchez, right? The conservative Iraq vet darling of the right-wing set who turned out to be equally well known as gay porn star Rod Majors? Well, I found his blog, and I share it with those who may be interested. Oh, and here's Michelle Malkin's defense of him. Malkin is googly-eyed crazy, so it's worth a read. Between Sanchez and Jeff Gannon, I'm beginning to think that conservatives are trying to recruit gay porn stars.

By the way, if I am getting annoying in conversation with snappy comebacks, blame the stand-up comedy instruction I've been taking. I spend a good deal of each day coming up with material, and as a result I tend to think in terms of rim-shots.**

**That's the drum-thing done after a punchline. I realize with a post about Matt Sanchez it could mean something...very different. But it doesn't.

New favorite lyric:

"There's nothing like poverty to get you into heaven
They've got alot of wine and fish up there and the bread's unleavened
They got alot of ears that heard a whip go crack
Lots of missing toes and fingers and scars upon their backs"
