Ahh, family values.
Hi, and welcome to RepHoJudgeNo. I just love the Republican ideal for America. Mom cleans the house, cooks the meals, raises the children, pumps out babies on demand, while Daddy goes to work, brings home the bacon, plays ball with the boys, ignores the girls, and picks up hookers in public restrooms.
Wait a minute...picks up hookers in public restrooms?
That's right folks, the party that believes that allowing gays to marry would sully the sanctity of their oh-so-fragile God-endorsed marriages brings us yet another of their members(hee hee)busted soliciting sex in the potty. Florida State Representative Bob Allen was convicted on Friday of soliciting sex from a prostitute in a public park restroom, a second-degree misdemeanor. When sentenced he could face up to 60 days incarceration and a $500 fine. Where are your family values now, you sanctimonious party of hypocrites?
Don't get me wrong. I am not a Democrat looking to ridicule the Republicans at any opportunity. I tend to side with the Dems more out of the 'lesser of two evils' doctrine than any ideological similarity. In fact, I would love to give Washington and enema and flush all of those bloated, pampered parasites out and start fresh. But since that is not really an option we are stuck with what we've got. If the GOP actually practiced what they preach: smaller government, lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, I'd be all for them. But over the last two decades it seems that while the Democrats merely talk a lot and do relatively little, the Republicans have adopted a de facto F-You attitude toward the American people...wait, strike that...toward the rest of the world. It's almost as if they believe that they can do whatever they want with impunity, and how dare we question them. It still boggles my mind when I think of the millions of taxpayer dollars spent to impeach President Clinton over a hummer in the oval office, while Bush has committed acts just verging on treason, and his fellow Republicans are regularly getting busted for sexual exploits that make Clinton look like Mother-frikken-Theresa. And these pompous pricks have the nerve to say that it's the gay population that is destroying the American family! GHAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHH!!!!!
[ahem]Um, sorry. Got a little carried away there. To my non-US readers I apologize for this digression that probably means little to you. However, you might take a bit of comfort in the knowledge that there are many of us here in the States who dislike our Buffoon-In-Chief just as much, if not more, than you do. I never thought I would long for the Reagan/Thatcher days, but even though I didn't like what they were doing, at least it made a lick of sense.
Ok, need more coffee.
Love and kittens,
