Another Wheel Flies Off?
The GOP, led by Gay Basher in Chief George W. Bush, failed in their attempt yesterday to create a Constitutional amendment that specifically discriminates against gays and lesbians.
I quote from a July 15 New York Times article:
"It's a net loss for Republicans politically," said one prominent Republican in Washington who works closely with the White House. "It does nothing for our base, because they're grumpy about not having it, and it energized a significant portion of their base. I guarantee you that the gay community will give twice as much money and work harder for Kerry now, not so much because they care about marriage per se, but because this effort plays to their fears that we're homophobic."
Gays and lesbians don't fear that most Republicans are homophobic, most ARE homophobic.
But the Repugnican quoted in this excerpt is right about one thing, the gay community is giving twice as much money and working twice as hard for John Kerry.
Now that Bush has snubbed the NAACP by refusing to speak at their convention, people of color will be doing the same.
So will environmentalists.
So will people who watched Michael Moore's movie Fahrenheit-911.
So will those who hate being lied to.
So will anyone with half a heart.
So will anyone with half a brain.
Dick Cheney told Senator Leahy to go fuck himself.
Dick said he felt better afterwards.
George W. Bush doesn't need to be told to go fuck himself. He already has.
