Just a Preview
Okay, I may be tired of Democratic candidates smothering Texas with their bullshit extravaganza, but I realize as a red-blooded lesbian Texas liberal I still have an obligation to fuck with McCain and his phony family values.
Look at this photo.
There's the Totally White Family portrait, all blonde and sunny and orthodontized and Botoxed. And look who they left out. Bridget, the stumpy, chunky, cleft palleted, darky-dark adopted daughter.
Cindy McCain publicly admitted that she couldn't protect Bridget during McCain's '04 run because she was too busy with her Percoset addiction at the time.
Her solution now is to hide Bridget from public view.
I'm soooo sure it has nothing to do with Bridget's unfortunate adolescent appearance.
We Americans dealt just fine with a homely young Chelsea Clinton.
Jimmy Carter's kids were downright hideous, but we were okay with them, too.
But they were the children of Democrats.
Republicans like to sell the fantasy of Leave it to Beaver- their kids are fine young Christian youth- well-scrubbed, white and...did I mention white?
For the McCains to intentionally leave Bridget out of this family portrait has nothing to do with "protecting her." Plain and simple, it shows us that a shame-based family decision indicates deep dysfunction with the parents.
It was cold and heartless.
And utterlty inexcusable.
