Not unlike a "flash / bang" lobbed in order to obtain or re-obtain the initiative, the right-wing has learned that if, on occasion, they shout, "Gay Republican! Look out!" the Left will be momentarily off-guard, as they are required to consult their Inner Political Correctness gauge, and this sends them into a brief recursive loop, based on Cognitive Dissonance, because of trying to hold in their minds both the mercy towards gays and the frustration with Republicans.

That goes both ways, Noumenon, when gay-hating republicans find a gay republican in their midst, it therefore becomes a golden opportunity for the democrats to expose the hypocracy of the christian right-wing conservatives. As a result you have frustrated republicans with the option of acknowledging that the democrats are right about the republican hypocracy, or defending said gay republican and providing more ammo for the democrat bead. In the latter option, you have a situation where republicans state something along the lines of "What does him being gay have to do with it?". A truly metrosexual moment for the baccy spittin', truck drivin', ball game watchin' tough guys.

Of course, secretly the republicans initiate talks with said gay republican on the correct procedure to have him cured of his "faggotry".

Here's the scary thing folks, there are far more gay Republicans than we will ever know about. They keep their "abnormal" proclivities hidden from the public's eye while pushing their moralist agenda down the throats of the many. They get in YOUR face and tell YOU how YOU should behave and then crawl off to engage in their own destructive behaviors secretly. THAT is what I see as being dangerous, if not downright creepy. The moralist/stealth gay. There is something wrong there. There's nothing creepy about someone who says they're gay, or gay Republican or gay Democrat. There is something terribly wrong, though, with someone bashing it while hiding it. And that is what these folks are. J. EDGAR HOOVER, anyone?

Awhile back I posted what was then the latest in the unfolding Gannon/Guckert drama. Here it is:

Bless the Beasts and the Children

Photographer for White House child sex ring arrested after Thompson suicide

by Tom Flocco

WASHINGTON -- March 13, 2005 -- -- Photographer Russell E. "Rusty" Nelson was recently arrested two days after journalist Hunter Thompson reportedly committed suicide four weeks ago on February 10, according to two phone interviews with attorney John DeCamp last week.

This is very important! After giving this whole new twist considerable thought, I could only come to one conclusion. The above article linking Gannon to Johnny Gosch and the Franklin Cover-up is just too far fetched (altho the Franklin/Gosch thing was true) to embrace. My money sez Rove spun this little gem out there to crush any ounce of credibility in those seeking to get to the bottom of GANNONGATE. If he could tie Gannon to such a highly charged and almost incredibly unbelievabe case (from the past), no one would touch it further, with a ten foot pole, not to mention the fact that the average Joe and Jill would NEVER believe it. It's so utterly dispicable and unbelievably evil, its just too much for most people to get their heads around. And ya know what? I think its working brilliantly. The bait switch strategy has left most people looking at this speechless. That article at tomflocco pretty much brought the steam-building story to a screeching halt.

DON'T BUY IT! Forget about that whole Franklin connection. It's pure T BU#!

See it for the DIVERSION it is!

As long as Dems roll out candidates like Gore and Kerry, I have no choice but to vote for ANY Republican. Gore makes Gerald Ford look like a genius, and Kerry, well, he and Gore ought to find an unknown island somewhere and start a race of idiots. The only problem is they would be too stupid to figure out how to survive.

I am NOT a Republican. I am an Independant, near-Libertarian, and that does not mean I don't have strong beliefs, and it doesn't mean I'm a waffler. I have social and environmental awareness, but I'm sick and tired of the radical left dominating the Democratic Party as I am the radical right dominating the Republican Party. Until the Dems figure out that you cannot throw money at social problems and fix anything, and until they understand that this isn't Scandinavia and part of the reason this country was founded was tax REVOLT, I will not vote for ANY Democrat in a national level election.

If you want to insult me because I don't agree with you, that's your right, and frankly, that's exactly what I expect. If you want to discuss this stuff in a truly analytical fashion, you have my respect and admiration. If you take the typical ultra-liberal tack and insult my intelligence or just sling mud at me because I don't see things as you see them, that's too bad.

I'm not sure who you're addressing specifically; but, I'm neither Democrat, nor Liberal.

As for your post, I'm not sure how it relates to the subject being discussed throughout this thread. All comments pertaining to it are welcome, though.

More from the how you were suckered file..

Be careful of the bumper stickers you put on your vehicles. If they're anti-Bush and spotted, it could keep you from attending one of the president's staged privatization events. Don't wear t-shirts to that effect, either.

There will be NO disagreeAnce here! Now smile for the camera.

Suppressing free speech: Follow Up To Colorado Secret Service Removal of Three F
Posted on Tuesday, March 29 @ 15:45:43 EST by Drew

In Unusual "Signaling" Move, Secret Service Admits White House is Suppressing Free Speech at Bush Events Financed by Taxpayers. This Would be Impeachable if Republicans Cared About Our Constitution. And It Happens Again and Again.
This is incredible: Very rarely does the everyday public get a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes in a normally-secret Bush Administration

Here's a great addition to this awful compendium of propaganda. It's a new Bush-era devil's dictionary. N'joy!
It's all so funny and horrible...

Entries for a Devil's Dictionary of the Bush Era
By Tom Engelhardt
Tom Dispatch

Monday 28 March 2005

For the last few years we have been ruled by lexicographers. Never has an administration spent so much time creating, defining, or redefining terms, perhaps because no one (since George Orwell) has grasped the power and possibility that lay hidden in plain sight in the naming and renaming of words. In a sense, our post-9/11 moment began with two definitions: The Bush administration named our global enemy "terrorism" and called the acts that followed a "war," which was soon given the moniker "the global war on terror" (later reduced to the acronym GWOT, also known as World War IV), which was then given an instant future - being defined as a "generational struggle" that was still to come. All this, along with "war" itself, was simply announced rather than officially "declared."

This is ridiculous. The National Press Club is hosting an event on blogs and journalism and will feature disgraced journalist poseur Gannon/Guckert.
I'm not sure if its an attempt to gain notice on the part of the press club or what. They're trying to get it covered on CSPAN. It's a shame - giving Gannon any attention other than before a grand jury.

The National Press Club Welcomes ... Jeff Gannon?

By Joe Strupp

Published: March 29, 2005 updated Tuesday 11:00 AM ET

NEW YORK Jeff Gannon is back -- at the National Press Club?

Yes, the same day that the prestigious Washington, D.C., journalism organization plans to present a lunch talk by former Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee, it will also allow the former White House reporter/escort to be on a panel discussing bloggers and online journalism.

Here's some questions I'd like to ask Gannon..

Who's your boyfriend in the White House?

Who gave you a two-year day pass?

Who allowed you to see info. on Valerie Plame; and why?

Are you still doing someone in the White House? Would that be Rove?

Just an aside, but I just thot of something. Karl Rove looks like Rush Limbaugh's freakishly ugly younger brother.
Sorry - I couldn't help myself.

Just read a great article by Frank Rich discussing the shenanigans going on with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

They're doing their very best now to stamp out the liberal voices and to promote all Bush all the time.

I'm a Republican, but I swear these people are wackjobs. Who in their right mind would be threatened by the Lehrer News Hour? I don't care what their bent is, its the best American news hour on television. Cable and network news can't hold a candle to it. (Nightline excluded)

The Armstrong Williams NewsHour
By Frank Rich

Sunday 26 June 2005

Here's the difference between this year's battle over public broadcasting and the one that blew up in Newt Gingrich's face a decade ago: this one isn't really about the survival of public broadcasting. So don't be distracted by any premature obituaries for Big Bird. Far from being an endangered species, he's the ornithological equivalent of a red herring.

Let's not forget that Laura Bush has made a fetish of glomming onto popular "Sesame Street" characters in photo-ops. Polls consistently attest to the popular support for public broadcasting, while Congress is in a race to the bottom with Michael Jackson. Big Bird will once again smite the politicians - as long as he isn't caught consorting with lesbians
