The party that purports to be the watchdog for morality and family values here in the USA never fails to deliver when it comes to hypocrisy. And I never tire of hearing about the repressed and repressive dudes whose fragile egos and rigid super-egos implode while their angry ids run wild. Sometimes it’s laughable and sometimes it’s really, really disgusting and tragic because of the suffering they cause.
There’s the drug-addled pundit so aptly named Rush … and the self-righteous Lothario, Mr. Sanford. That anti-gay preacher whose name escapes me … but who had his fun on the side. The list goes on and on and on in very predictable fashion. Furious, self-righteous, controlling, judgmental folks are just usually judging others for what they secretly are doing or want to be doing themselves. There’s no way around it. You see someone getting all red-faced while they are railing against something … just wait and watch the news. It’ll come out, whatever it is.
So, for example, Joe Wilson getting all huffy and calling Obama a liar? Yeah, you got it. Liar, liar pants on fire, Mr. Wilson. Turns out he and his family are all very well taken care of by that evil entity – government-run health care.
But there’s more!
Thanks, AMR, for your introduction of another leading light from the right-wing pantheon, Michael Duvall, from California. He likes to spank (and that’s no lie). As expected, his political profile offers the typical rigid, righteous rhetoric: As legislator, Duvall has “blasted” efforts to promote gay marriage. The conservative Capitol Resource Institute gave him a 100% rating, calling him “a consistent trooper for the conservative causes” who “voted time and time again to protect and preserve family values in California” It’s all so predictable, it’s almost laughable.
Or not. This is a chilling story just coming out of Kentucky … about Steve Nunn, a former GOP lawmaker who was found wandering in a cemetery after a former girlfriend was found dead. Not laughable. Not at all. But how many of the folks who scream about how pro-life they are would also deny the reality of domestic violence (or think it’s a husband’s prerogative)?
So anyway … I’ve had it with the self-righteous, raging, hypocrisy. What the ailing GOP needs is some kind of intervention. Or exorcism.
Oh, and next time you hear someone call Obama a liar .. or, say, a Nazi … check for the secret drawer with the swastika-embroidered ladies’ underwear and the whip.
Trust me, it’s there!
