First things first.....
Yes, we heard you.
In the interviews..in front of the podium...and then again today when your creepy audio police tape was released on CNN. The first words out of your mouth every time you spoke.
"I'm not gay."..."I'm not gay"..."I'm not gay".
Well of course you aren't.
It's so sad, and so obvious what those words mean.
Instead of fessing up, or apoligizing for his lurid behavior, he is so tortured by his lifetime of a closeted sexual orientation, and the fear that it might somehow come out, that he blurts those words out immediately, failing to see what he is being accused of.
Uhm, shouldn't it be an explanation as to what you were doing in a bathroom stall?
Your sexual orientation is not the demon here.
He has dreaded someone knowing the truth for ever...and now it's out there. His world is crashing in around him.
Never mind an explanation as to what happened in the bathroom, this is the first thing that MUST come out of his mouth. Attack what you hate about yourself and fear the most. Not what you did.
And as a product of being in the self-laothing closet his entire life, this is what being gay is to him...sneaking around in public bathrooms. The two are one in the same, and became his form of release. Disgusting.
And now, he will be remembered for what is truly one of the most pathetic and comical things to hit this town in years.
Good Bye you sick old troll.
Shame on you and your legacy of lies and perversion.
Let's talk about the weather!
Two years ago...I remember it well.
I live for hurricane season.
Two years ago I was working round the clock during Hurricane Katrina...at the DOT Crisis Center, and also at FOX 5. It was heaven for me.
Being in the center of everything and watching it unfold.
Watching the destruction was horrible, and even worse, having to witness the apathy of our country's leader for three days afterwards.
Now, I totally put blame on all levels of government when it came to Katrina...state, local, and federal.
BUT...what I can't accept or begin to understand is the apathy that was displayed by our President after the event. For four days, there was nothing..not even an acknowledgement of the seriousness of what was unfolding in New Orleans.
How could anybody, any human being, not be aware of what was going on at the time, or make an effort to let the people know things were happening to help them. That's where I have a problem. Is there not a TV in the White House?
Katrina was not Bush's fault...it was the result of an act of nature and man's engineering shortcomings. But what was Bush's fault was the total apathy afterwards. To this day it boggles my mind. And to have the audacity to go down there a week afterwards and compliment "Heck of a job Brownie" sent shivers down my spine.
Who in their right mind would say such a thing?! Talk about rubbing salt in the wounds of those already suffering.
Wonkette has the funniest piece I've read in a while with regards to the President and Katrina.
I could say more, about the lack of assistance in the "promised" rebuilding of New Orleans, but she does a pretty good job.
As does this fill-in writer "Hilzoy"; she is writing for my buddy Andrew Sullivan, who is in Massachusetts getting married to his long-time partner.
Oh, the irony of his marriage occuring this week.
Think about it.
