Well, it remains true, truth as they say, is stranger than fiction, and Merika is just the gol durned funniest place! I kid you not, and other such terms. Oh boy have we got the dishiest stuff today!
I guess one must conclude that the religious right is just the location where we can find the closeted gay community these days. There seems a never-ending list of homophobic bible thumping “ministers” all doin’ the nasty behind not so closed doors.
Anyway, one George Alan Rekers, co-founder with our good homophobe Lou Dobson, of the Family Research Council, was caught with his baggage hanging out in a Miami airport.
Seems Mr. Rekers, or Pastor Rekers, I should say, was accompanied by a lad hired from Rentboy.com a rather salacious site, noted for pairing youngish “men” with, well who ever is willing to pay. Said “Lucian” accompanied said minister through a two-week vacation in Europe.
Now, Mr. Rekers denies any hanky panky, in mock shock we are told, declaring that although he did hire the boy from Rentboy, he had no idea that it was THAT kind of site. (Odd since the description of said lad was to say the least, rather descriptive of his, err, nether parts.)
In any case, Mr. Rekers, swears to God, that said Lucian was only there to “carry his baggage” made difficult for Mr. Rekers to do since a surgery hampered his ability in that way. Which all led to this lovely quip over at Unreasonable Faith:
He needed help “lifting his luggage,” if you know what I mean. It replaces “hiking the Appalachian Trail” and “wide stance” as the newest euphemism created by a sex scandal.
I mean, it’s a wacky world out there folks. I can imagine the activity going on at the FRC. Oh to be a fly on the wall!
There was a reversal of poles the other day. Don’t know if you noticed or not, but it sure happened. This is near enough to make one’s head implode, and dear, wouldn’t that be messy?
Speaking of gays in the closet–Lindsey Graham (no we did not say that!) and his stooge friends Johnny and Joey, are at it again, pretending to be grownups and messin’ around in adult conversation.
Johnny and Joey have been arguing that, why heck, American citizens, if suspected of terrorist behavior should be denied their rights. Yep, you heard that right–they should not be Mirandized, but should be turned over the military immediately, for, shall we say, more “serious” interrogation?
Now, we know why Johnny is spouting like a horses ass, since of course his precious door label of S E N A T O R is in jeopardy, but Joey? Have we forgotten the life and times of average Jews in Berlin in the 30’s and 40’s? HUH? And, well, Lindsey, I guess we KNOW what your issue is, we just don’t know which one of them is your man–unless both.
The cold day in hell when something Glenn Beck said would be sane? Well, it’s that day folks. He DISAGREED with said three simpletons.
Well, didn’t ya just know this would happen. The nutso Rethugs have NO idea where the idea came about that THEY were associated with such a blatantly wrong-headed chant of drill baby drill. Nope, no idea. Um…maybe some candidate or other, some minor local election might have used it, but nope, nope, not a REPUBLICAN phrase, of that you can be sure.
Was bound to happen ya know. Short memories, or more likely short minds. But happily, the good editors of the HuffPo, do recall, and do have the footage and do have the transcripts. Ain’t modern technology just grand?
It might just be that the Rethugs won’t find all that mid term election business quite as a much a walk in the park as they had assumed. And worse, we hear tell that the Prez is interested in pushing immigration reform THIS year, and that can hardly make any Rethug begging for a Latino bump feel very happy.
Michael Brown oozed out from under his rock to attempt to resurrect himself (meaning he has a book he is trying to sell). While out, he tried to put off his general irrelevance to anything in the world by ‘splainin’ to us that he has the real lowdown on the gulf catastrophe.
According to Brownie, who knows all about bein’ a douche, the president deliberately waited to step in on the tragedy of the oil spill. As the waste product sees it,
. . . . I am hellishly angry; I think so-and-so is a swine; I am tortured by worry about this or that; I am pretty certain that I have missed my chances in life; this or that has left me feeling terribly depressed. But nonetheless here I am like this, feeling both bloody and bloody-minded, and I am going to stay here for ten minutes. You are most unlikely to give me anything. I know that. But I am going to stay here for ten minutes nonetheless. Amen.
