The Bush Platform

When asked about various programs his administration has advanced, Bush has his answers at the ready.

WMD's not found in Iraq?
It's because gays want to marry.
Halliburton gouging on government contracts in Iraq?
Gays want to be more like Adam and Eve than Adam and Steve.
Trillion dollar deficits?
Gays wanting equal rights caused the economic turmoil.
Can't find Bin Laden?
Gays are distracting from the search.
Dubya's Mission to Mars plan rejected by public?
Gays would just want to redecorate Mars anyway.
High prescription costs?
Gays' fault.
Social Security in peril?
Gays are aging and taking all the money.
Rampant unemployment?
Gays wanting to marry caused businesses to panic and fail.
Outsourcing American jobs to third world countries?
Gays sent these jobs away by being so damn gay.
Unwanted pregnancies, too many abortions?
Gays cause straight people to want to fuck to prove they aren't gay.
The environment is being ruined?
Gays suck up all the clean air and pollute waters with their fancy colognes and hair care products.

Folks, I have said it before and I am saying it again. Bush wants the country to focus on the gay issue and connect it to his reelection. He wants people to think he'll save them from the plague of turning gay.
He wants the Christian right, the hard-boiled conservatives, the NASCAR set and the rest of dumb America to forget his many fuck-ups and just focus on fear and homophobia.
He can't justify or explain the miserable shape he's put America into, so he's found a topic he's banking on to be so repugnant that the idiot voters of the country will ignore his conniving greed and stupidity.
Mark my words-
His campaign won't be FOR anything, it'll just be centered against gays.
He's using us like adult diapers. We catch all the shit, because to him we are disposable.
If he's reelected, after four more years of financial devastation and war, the morons who fed on his homophobic hate rhetoric and fear tactics will have a hell of a lot more to worry about than the dykes down the street getting married.

Remember the Martin Niemoeller piece:
First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Let them come for the gays first, then one day...
