Republican Faygeleh Follies

Forget the loss of life in Iraq, the war conducted under false pretenses, the incompetence and corruption in the face of Katrina, the unconstitutionality of the Bush administration's handling of "enemy combatants", the fact that Dick Cheney is Satan, etc. What may help bring the assholes down is none other than a gay congressman with a soft spot for tender male flesh. This is what constitutes an outrage in this country.
What is an outrage is not that Foley is gay, but that he belongs to a party that has done everything in its power to demonize and discriminate against homosexuals, which should be against the law. I have never understood gay Republicans. Like black Republicans, it's beyond me.
And in a most cheap, whiny and unconvincing way, Foley now claims he was abused by a clergyman when he was a child. As if this is the sole reason for him being gay, God forbid he was born that way. A tenth circle of hell needs to be invented for these people.

What is outrageous is that when it comes to American politics, sexual brouhahas are more damaging than actual criminal, irresponsible behavior that kills people. (See above list).
Getting a blowjob at the Oval Office cannot be cause for impeachment while every disaster Bush has unleashed upon the world is not. I wish Bush, Cheney and Rummy and Condi were judged with the same holier-than-thou stick, and with the same hunger for hysterical scandal for their reckless behavior, which is far more dangerous and damaging to the whole country than sending love letters to underage pages via email.
So while they are all running like headless chickens, let's enjoy the show and call for impeachment once more.
