Say, Mr. Graham! Is this one of those “double standards” you’re talking about?!

Richard Cohen, of the Washington Post has decided that Michael Jackson’s tragic demise wasn’t a problem of political over-exposure for Governor Sanford. Within four weeks, two Republicans have been apologizing for failing to keeping their trousers zipped up in the sense of “Holy Sanctity of Marriage” and an additional Republican governor is stepping down with her own two-week notice complete with hip-waders and fish-nets.  Thankfully, super-star King of Pop-Legend, Michael Jackson has croaked.  This funeral has  over-shadowed the entire train-wreck of a political party in less than a month.

But Dick Cohen is quite comfortable with the situation.  He points to the recent “Quiting Becuase I’m Not a Quiter Governor Sara Palin (R-AK) resignation as trivial.  Governor Mark Sanford:  “Oh phhhhphphp…Big Deal… Get over it already!!

Almost as interesting as Palin is South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford. Never mind his affair. These things happen. Concentrate instead on how he hid his affair — by disappearing and calling attention to himself. Note also that even before he somehow took the Appalachian Trail to Buenos Aires, he was renowned for rejecting federal stimulus money. Before that, as a congressman, he claimed to have forsaken a housing allowance — and a cot — and said, “I sleep on the floor of my office.” Most of us would consider this weird behavior. In the GOP, it was seen as presidential timber.

Okay, can you guess what’s wrong with this picture?

If you’re AWOL from your post as Governor,  and lie to the good folks of your state by telling them you’ve gone on a hiking trip, meanwhile you spend tax-payer dollars to fly to Argentina to boff your Argentinian Lolita…so what? These things happen. Additionally, if you sleep on a cot, and claim publicly that you really slept on the floor: Some folks might think you’re weird — But the GOP will think you’re Presidential Timber!

Insert a lame “I got a woodie” joke here.

Tim Graham, the director of media analysts over at the conservative Media Research Center is expressing relief over the recent tragic death of Michael Jackson on behalf of Governor Mark Sanford (R-SC).

You see, according to Graham; if it hadn’t been for the overwhelming media attention on Michael Jackson’s demise, poor Governor Sanford would have suffered a lot more needless media scrutiny than he already has received and doesn’t deserve at all, whatsoever.

How pedestrian can the GOP’s propaganda machine continue to be?

Graham laments his grief for Sanford’s unfortunate zipper-problem:

“If you took a Democratic Sanford, a Democratic governor having one mistress, they would all yawn over that,” he contends. “They would really not find that very interesting at all, and yet these people will find Republican mayors cheating as an interesting national story.”

Mayors?  There are Republican mayors out there skanking on their wives in addition to the boat loads of US Senators, Governors and Congress-Creatures?!  There are mayors that we don’t know about, Mr. Graham?!?

Here’s the martyrdom line-up for the public consumption: “It’s those horrible infidels over on the Left who are so willing to crucify those of us Righteous Righties. If those Liberal Lefties are caught…Well, nobody would care!  But if we’re caught.. “Oh horror…! Oh poor us!  Why do you persecute us so?!!”

Graham continues (weeping bitterly):

“They know that people like you and me are disgusted by a Mark Sanford — and they know that that guy will be toast. And they know that adultery is not going to hurt a liberal,” he adds. “When we discuss how the media behaves, we understand that the same people who are all making an enormous, big deal out of Mark Sanford thought that there was absolutely nothing wrong with what Bill Clinton did [while in office].

Graham says; “It’s a clear double-standard.”

How much lying are these conservatives allowed to get away with before they’re called on it? Furthermore, how much stupidity can the American public take from these jack-asses.

Even Rush Limbaugh admitted that “Mark Sanford couldn’t keep his trousers zipped up because it was Obama’s fault!”

Now they’re weeping because Michael Jackson didn’t croak soon enough to protect Sanford’s “Great Trouser Snake Escape”?!

These Republicans are cheating around on their spouses (breaking God’s “Holy Sanctity of Marriage”), and the Conservatives  will complain that it’s everybody else’s fault.  Or, they’ll whip out with: “We’ve got a Double-Standard Here, people!”   (They don’t want hate crimes legislation to protect the gays…But they’ll jump at the chance for a “don’t pick on a Republican” legislation in a New York Minute!

It’s pathetic!

It’s Weak!

Let’s try this one step at a time. Because Tim Graham is just out right lying to his readership with this whole “double-standard idea”.

Double Standard #1:

John Edwards (D) v. Sarah Palin (R)

When it was discovered that John Edwards had been having an affair on his wife, the entire GOP Propaganda Machine (a.k.a. Mainstream Media) gasped: “His career is over with! His career is finished!!! Oh, his dear poor wife!”

The story was originally spilled by none other than The National Enquirer.

Fox’s Hannity and Colmes did not hesitate to have Chris Kofinas, Edwards’ campaign manager on their show to drill him on the “horror”.

But, the National Enquirer also published a story about Sarah Palin who had skanked on her husband and cheated on him in an affair.

The GOP gasped in horror – but not at the fact that Palin’s career was as was apparently Edwards’.  They gasped that the National Enquirer would even print such an alleged malicious lie!

In fact, the GOP threatened lawsuits against the Enquirer for even considering publishing the idea that they’re Political Lolita from Alaska would be a skank in the first place.

Governor Palin’s political career wasn’t over like Edwards’ career was “over”. Quite the contrary! The GOP loves Sarah Palin! We don’t know why, we think she’s dumber than a pail of nails! But, then that only means Sarah Palin’s Fan Club is grouped together by some very stupid pails.

Say, Mr. Graham! Is this one of those “double standards” you’re talking about?!

Double Standard #2:

Jim McGreevey (D-NJ) v Larry Craig (R-ID)

When Governor McGreevey came out of the closet, he came flying out. He came out flying with a closet-full of boas; admitted to having an affair with another man. Governor McGreevey was gay. He immediately resigned.

Republican Media gasped in horror:  Not another Democrat with an infidelity problem?!

Yet, Senator Larry Craig was arrested for soliciting sex in the Mens Room restroom at the Twin Cities International Airport. Senator Craig bullied the police officer with his Senator ID badge, trying to intimidate the officer, but it didn’t work. A few months later, the Senator plead guilty to the charge.

But, what happened to the Senator for Not-Coming-Out?

Nothing!  He’s happily back at his office doing whatever it is that he does for his good citizens of Idaho!  It’s embarrassing for them.  But, there’s no consequences for his actions?  He plead guilty for soliciting sex in a men’s restroom and there’s nothing wrong with that?  What kind of GOPervert party is this anyway?

Say, Mr. Graham! Is this one of those “double standards” you’re talking about?!

Double Standard #3:

Eliot Spritzer (D-NY) v. David Vitter (R-LA)

Governor Spitzer (D-NY) was caught in a prostitution ring. He was kicked out of office immediately.   Boom! Out of a job!  Go away!

Senator David Vitter (R-LA) was caught in a prostitution ring and this is what he did.

He drags his wife Wendy out wearing a tight leopard-print dress and shouts into the microphone

I’M SORRY!!

…And he goes back to work.  Not a care in the world…  Nothing about the fact that he was getting wrapped in a diaper while tens of thousands of his fellow Louisianans were floating dead in the drink.

So, the Democrat bangs some prostitutes, he’s sent home with a report card full of F’s.  But if a Republican bangs a brothel full of prostitutes, he drags his wench-looking wife in front of the cameras and apologizes and he gets to go back to work?!

Say, Mr. Graham! Is this one of those “double standards” you’re talking about?!

Double Standard #4:

Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) v. Ted Stevens (R-AK)

This Governor of Illinois was arrested and charged with a wide-variety of corruption charges, including an attempt to acution off the US Senate seat that was vacated by then President-Elect Barack Obama.  Within weeks, the Illinois Legislature impeached the governor who went later to stand trial and eventually convicted.

Ted Stevens (R-AK) was charged and convicted on seven counts of corruptions charges.  Stevens plead innocent of the charges, he was brought in front of a jury and he was convicted, unanimously on each count. What happened?  He continued to run for US Senate.  In December, following the election, what happened?

You got it, Baby!  The United States Senate stood up and gave this convicted felon a standing ovation!

Governor Blagojevich didn’t get an applause.  He didn’t even get a trial until after he was impeached!  Both plead not-guilty but only the Republican got to go on and receive his homage while the Democrat was shunned and pulled out like a weed from an old lady’s  garden.

Say, Mr. Graham! Is this one of those “double standards” you’re talking about?!

There’s no truth to back-up what these conservatives are saying these days.  Their truth is their demise.  Because each time a Democrat goes down for some unscrupulous practice, they step down and the party becomes more united to try harder.   The Republicans, this isn’t the way they work.  Although they “claim” those “Good American Family Values”, they are values you and I are expected to uphold.  Their values are way off-base to the ones they preach.  And that’s one of the many reasons the GOP is not going to make it in the end.

Oklahoma Senator Calls Minnesota’s New Senator “A Clown”

inhofe-ensignReferencing a environmental bill narrowly passing in the House of Representatives, Oklahoma’s senior Senator James Inhofe feels confident that the bill will fail miserably in the US Senate. Feeling the pinch from the Minnesota Supreme Court ruling that awarded Senator-Elect Al Franken his election certificate and making the 60th Vote for the Democrats in Inhofe’s chamber, the Senator bullied in with:

“I’ll tell you what a lot of people are thinking, and that is it looks like things are going to be over and we are going to get the clown from Minnesota,’’ he said.

“They are not going to get more than 35 votes.’’

Asked if he was referring to Al Franken as the clown from Minnesota, Inhofe confirmed he was.

“I didn’t mean to be disrespectful. I don’t know the guy, but … for a living he is a clown,’’ the senator said.

“That’s what he does for a living.’’

Name-calling is nothing new for Senator Inhofe.  Acting like a grade-schooler is what Inhofe does best.

He’s compared Carol Browning, Obama’s EPA Administrator as a  “Tokyo Rose“, and the EPA has been compared to The Gastapo.  (It’s because he’s so patriotic, you see… It’s obvious that he just loves America that much.)  He also compares those who raise awareness about Global Warming as being members of the Third Reich.  (Because cleaning the planet up is so obviously equivalent to rounding up Jewish and gay people and sending them to concentration camps!)Kicking Republican Nuts has never been so much fun!!

Why am I hearing the bleating sounds of a pup-seal getting beat over the head every time a Republican open his political-douche bag-mouth these days?

Credit Score: lonesomemongoose.com and Bartcop.

Let’s see how Minnesota’s (ehem)  “clown” mops up after an old-goat from Oklahoma like  James Inhofe, shall we?

Tulsa World reports mercury poisoning in Oklahoma’s lakes the highest in the country.

From the Land of Lakes of northern Minnesota; calling the EPA and Global Warming Geeks anything related to Nazi, Third Reich crap is a Doom-Machine for any idiot living in Oklahoma.

Don’t drink the water, Senator Inhofe…There’s blood in the water.

Huckabee Threatens Civilization

Actually, I lied in the title. The real title of today’s Special is:

Huckabee warns gay marriage threatens civilizationSt Huck

Mike Huckabee has already begun to ramp-up the Konservative Kristian Koalition rhetoric with his “Let’s Hate The Gay Families” crap. Now that he’s attracted the attention of the religiously insane, a.k.a. “The Xtians” in his bid for GOP Presidency.

Leave it to the Evangelicals to suck off the scum that settles to the bottom.

Said the Governor:

“You have to have a basic family structure. There’s never been a civilization that has rewritten what marriage and family means and survived.”

Really?! Is that true? Really? Or is that just another religious jihadist tub thumping stupid rhetoric with a penchant for pretending that he’s an “expert” on something while secretly hoping nobody discovers he’s actually a complete buffoon?

…Ooooo!! Here’s a tidbit of “re-writing” the concept of marriage what the word “family” means; Divorce Rate America!! According to them:

According to enrichment journal on the divorce rate in America:
The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%

Now there’s some re-writing of the definition of “marriage” and “family values”!! I sure hope our civilization survives with all of that “re-writing” of marriage and families in divorce courts everywhere!

Huckleberry continues nonchalantly:Huckleberry Hound

“So there is a sense in which, you know, it’s one thing to say if people want to live a different way, that’s their business. But when you want to redefine what family means or what marriage means, then that’s an issue that should require some serious and significant debate in the public square.”

So, if you want to commit adultery or have children out of wedlock, or even pay your male prostitute extra so he’ll pick up some really high grade methamphetamine for your next visit, you can do so in private. But… if I want to be able to legally marry my life-partner, that requires a “serious” and “significant” debate in the public square?!

You know… What seriously needs to be discussed in the public square with some very significant debate is: Why did Governor Mike Huckabee encourage an Arkansas parole board to release serial rapist Wayne Dumond? …Even after several of his victims urged him to move on and ignore the predator! Because after if ever there was an attempt to destroy civilization, it’s when crazed maniacal politicians let bat-shit crazy people out of jail who run out and kill other peoples’ mommies after violently raping them.

huckleberry hound 2He babbles on by proving that he’s full of shit…

Huckabee scoffed at the claim that gay couples need legal recognition to visit one another in hospitals and nursing homes, saying that was achievable through power of attorney documents.

Gov. Mike Huckabee lives in a clueless world. Let me tellya…he’s an idiot. No really, he’s nothing but an idiot. Seriously, he’s an idiot. I’m not kidding! He’s a big fat idiot!

If he had a brain, he’d take the time out to read HRC’s 2007 Healthcare Equality Index. The PDF discusses at length the problems and the successes of GLBT couples involved with hospitalization. But he won’t. He’s far too busy stumping for votes for spiritually-dead voters who’ve been brainwashed in thinking that God hates “the Gays”. (If you encounter these kinds of people, please don’t draw any attention to their What Would Jesus Do?” bracelet… It only makes them nervous and feel a tiny pin-prick of hypocrisy.)

While he’s out there babbling his hatred for gays, gay marriage and the mythical destruction of institutions such as marriage and family… Check out Huckleberry in Des Moines on Tuesday in a conversation about the newly released NIE report that was released the day before.

Kuhn: I don’t know to what extent you have been briefed or been able to take a look at the NIE report that came out yesterday …

Huckabee: I’m sorry?

Kuhn: The NIE report, the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran. Have you been briefed or been able to take a look at it —

Huckabee: No.

Kuhn: Have you heard of the finding?

Huckabee: No.

Kuhn then summarized the NIE finding that Iran had stopped work on a clandestine nuclear program four years ago.

SheepleYup! There’s one very proud candidate to represent sheeple of our society. They’ll follow after drug addicts, suck on the teat of Jewish homophobes, they’ll even hand their children over to pompous religious zealots who will teach them to huddle around cardboard cutouts of George W. Bush and pray they’ll be chosen to go to war for him. Huckleberry will gladly hate the gays and remain clueless on the most recent current events.

It appears that he’s a perfect candidate for the religiously insane!

So where’s the threat to the American family? Is the threat coming from a gay couple who lives at the other end of your block? Perhaps the threat is coming from that lesbian couple who came to visit your church last Sunday?! Perhaps the true threat to civilization is a religious idiot fromFruitFly 6 Arkansas who’s hoping to be the next President of the United States and so he can prove to you how much God hates all of us because we’re not “perfect like him”.

I’m just sayin’.
