Setting the stage for his entry into the presidential race, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., gave a radio interview to be broadcast today with Focus on the Family’s James Dobson, in which Gingrich for the first time publicly acknowledged cheating on his first and second wives.
What was that about family values again? Huh? Oh, right — it means 1) being married twice, and 2) cheating on both wives. But this is typical Republican behavior, I suppose. I mean, they can’t even admit when they’re gay so they have to get married and pump out some kids. I think they thrive on living a lie, don’t you?
Oh, and why is it that I’m having so much trouble finding this news story on ABC.com’s website? And when I search on Google News I can find plenty of stories about Newt which mention the affair, but the word “affair” isn’t in any of their headlines anymore? I guess nobody really cares.
If this douchenozzle ends up being President, I may have to start looking at leaving the country because, frankly, all hope will have been lost.
This is despicable: a child-abusing priest wasn’t defrocked for his crimes…simply because he didn’t want the punishment. This non-action was even blessed by the man who is now Pope. What the what??
So a nun in Phoenix can be excommunicated because she approved an abortion which saved the life of the mother, but this pedophile creep is able to roam free just because he wants to. The abuse of power (and hatred of women) here is staggering. The Church is out of control!
The future Pope Benedict XVI refused to defrock an American priest who confessed to molesting numerous children and even served prison time for it, simply because the cleric wouldn’t agree to the discipline. The case provides the latest evidence of how changes in church law under Pope John Paul II frustrated and hamstrung U.S. bishops struggling with an abuse crisis that would eventually explode.
Documents obtained by The Associated Press from court filings in the case of the late Rev. Alvin Campbell of Illinois show Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, following church law at the time, turned down a bishop’s plea to remove the priest for no other reason than the abuser’s refusal to go along with it.
They’re Republicans and Democrats, and they were all caught with their pants down. Sometimes literally.
From white supremacist to right-wing politicians, we have watched an impressive number of vehemently and vocally anti-gay folks get caught up in gay sexscapades. Homophobia is in itself insanity. But being homophobic and gay, and building your career around that homophobia, well that seems like a bit more than just your run-of-the-mill self-hatred.
The RNC was caught wasting $2000 on a bondage-themed stripper club romp, so they’re firing the staffer who helped organize it. Wow, can they possibly pass the buck any further? How about suing the limo driver that took them to the club, or the strippers who performed lesbianic grindings while they watched? These people may claim to have the “moral high ground” but we all know they’re full of shit.
Also worthy of note: if you look at the story URL you’ll see that the Seattle Times has this story filed under “Entertainment.” Ho-ho!
The Republican National Committee has fired a staffer who helped organize a $1,946 visit last month to a sex-themed Hollywood club, and the GOP says it will recoup the money from a donor who also participated.
The episode is the latest in a string of questionable spending by the RNC as Republicans prepare for a costly election season in which they hope to take dozens of House and Senate seats from Democrats.
An RNC memo says the Jan. 31 outing to Voyeur West Hollywood involved several members of the “Young Eagles” GOP group who had been in Los Angeles for a meeting. An unnamed staffer, who had been warned that such activities did not qualify for reimbursement, has been fired, said the memo from RNC chief of staff Ken McKay.
In Arkansas, another creepo “minister” who’s been holed up in a compound and marrying himself to several women and girls was raided on child porn/abuse charges. The Tony Alamo Christian Ministries prison church is “in a single-story building that looks like a strip mall.” Holy shit. And yet, it’s perfect — strip mall design fits people like this perfectly.
Shortly after the raid, he was arrested in Flagstaff, AZ while staying at the Little America Hotel (oddly enough, I know exactly where that is). This asshole is in his 70’s, too, which adds yet another grotesque layer to the whole thing. His defense: “Why were they after Jesus? It’s the same reason. Jesus is living within me.” Uh-huh. Whatever you say, Grandpa Pervo. Meet your new cell-mate Bubba…and prepare to do a lot more kneeling than you’re used to.
Meanwhile in Wales, another “man of God” was arrested for having 56,800 child porn photos in his possession and confessed to “12 charges of making indecent images of children, four of taking indecent images and five of possessing images on his computer.” Jesus! And just look at him…he’s got those crazy eyes, like Mel Gibson’s. Crazy-freaky-creepy shit. And guess how long he’s been a vicar? Over 20 years! God, how horrifying.
Why are these types attracted to the clergy? What makes these sickos say to themselves, “I’ve got a thing for kids. I think I’ll join the church!” Sure, it’s possible the two desires aren’t directly connected, but the frequency of these incidents makes me wonder. Maybe we’ll never know…
If anyone out there still has any doubt as to how much Bush has fucked our country into a broken, bleeding mess, all you have to do is read this painful and damning summary of the BushCheney Legacy. I’ve never seen these facts and figures arranged in such a comprehensive way…it’s good for getting the Big Picture but bad for your peace of mind. If you’re in a good mood now, you can kiss it goodbye if you choose to read it! (I still highly suggest you give it a look.)
See, this is one of many reasons why I have little hope that things will ever get better in this country. I think that America is going to elect another Republican pigfucker who will continue to wage war on the rest of the world and sink us further into debt and cultural ruin. But hey, that’s just me.
(Speaking of pigfuckers, how about those T.V. “military analysts” who are actually the Pentagon’s regurgitators? Not too surprising, hmmm? Lying and manipulation: more hallmarks of Bush & Dick’s legacy of crapulence.)
A post on C|net’s blog predicts that Blockbuster is about to go buh-bye. God I hope this is true. It’s about time, and what an appropriate fate for this company — flushed down the toilet like the stinky turd it is. After years of shady rental fees, movie censorship, limitation of choice (no NC17 for you!), and a shameful, failed attempt to create its own Netflix clone, this company needs to just give up and go away already. It’s amazing anyone out there even gives them money anymore…Netflix is a vastly superior service, and without all the bullshit fees besides. What do y’all think?
