Mandates and Candid Hates

Karl or Jeff or now could it be James?
A White House full of fun and games
Tasty Male hookers, Ari Fleischer’s pride
Testy McClellan’s got nowhere to hide

Talon News Talent and Blogger Baby Claws
Maggie Gallagher memos for columnist whores
Press credential cachet for horny male sluts
Presidential cash to purchase ethical cuts

Cum guzzling Armstrong doing business in bed
Teaching the sinful how to get right ahead
Fantasy buttocks, hard on crotch on the mind
Leaving sanctity sacrosanct, leaving no child behind

Pretzel Pig Pansy, Presidential Insight,
Hating man mandate, hotmilitarystud web site
Softball diversions from Solid Rock Cock
From the Unmarried Queer to the Cheerleader Jock

Oscar season sanctimonies as the stories get loud
From the lynching of Churchill to the columns of Dowd
The Summers at Harvard where women woe scores
While the men at the White House get access as whores

Dead media mainstream asleep at the wheel
With Brad and Angelina to keep it all real
Imus in the Morning in malfunctioning cities
Blitzer of the blunderbuss pinching Michael Powell’s titties

Once West Wing blowjobs commanded attention
Now as quaint and as fashionable as a Geneva Convention
Karl Rove and his Filthy Boys Minding the Store
As he squats for his Jesus, and kneels for his whore

We write today to expand on a recent request you received on January 11 from Representative Louise Slaughter and other members of the Democratic Leadership. While that letter asked you to investigate the illegal use of appropriated money to covertly advocate for seven different programs, we ask that you also investigate whether the Administration violated the ban on prepacked news stories by siphoning print stories to James D. Guckert, also known as “Jeff Gannon.

Reps. John Conyers (Ranking Member, House Judiciary Committee) and Louise Slaughter (Ranking Member, House Rules Committee), Government Accountability Office (GAO) Letter, February 23, 2005


I am very impressed with James Guckert, a k a Jeff Gannon.

How often does an enterprising young man, heralded in press reports as both a reporter and a contributor to such sites as Hotmilitarystud.com, Workingboys.net, Militaryescorts.com, MilitaryescortsM4M.com and Meetlocalmen.com, get to question the president of the United States?

Who knew that a hotmilitarystud wanting to meetlocalmen could so easily get to be face2face with the commander in chief?

It's hard to believe the White House could hit rock bottom on credibility again, but it has, in a bizarre maelstrom that plays like a dark comedy. How does it credential a man with a double life and a secret past?

"Jeff Gannon" was waved into the press room nearly every day for two years as the conservative correspondent for two political Web sites operated by a wealthy Texas Republican. Scott McClellan often called on the pseudoreporter for softball questions.

Maureen Dowd, Bush's Barberini Faun, The New York Times, February 17, 2005


Let's all say it again, loud and clear. Jeff's previous job, and apparently current job since the Web sites are still live, is not his private life any more than outing Hotline reporters as, well, Hotline reporters is their private life. Whether they like or not, whether I like it or not, running a prostitution service goes against every family value that this administration and Guckert supposedly stand for.

Where was the high-and-mighty Hotline when George Bush, with the help of buddies like Guckert, tried to write me and 20 million of my friends out of the Constitution last year? Where was Accuracy in Media, the conservative bloggers, and everyone else who is defending Guckert's "private life" when my private life was going to singled out and savaged in our nation's most sacred document simply to get a few votes?

You've got a lot of nerve, Hotline. The entire GOP and its mainstream media sympathizers have a lot of nerve. We're talking about a hooker getting special access to the White House, the president, and intelligence information, and somehow everyone has suddenly discovered a conscience about homosexuals and hookers. Oh how I wish that conscience were real. But it's not. Bash a fag, bash a whore, and the GOP eats it all up. They throw us to their hateful, bigoted religious right buddies for votes with glee, while Mary Cheney cowers in the corner and Ken Mehlman runs for the shelter of the off-the-record quote.

Well newsflash Washington. The GOP is the one that rose gay-bashing and gay-baiting and sex-baiting to an art, and JeffJimGuckertGannon willingly joined the family values parade in print and in passion. They're trying to ban condoms, pornography, AIDS education. They take children away from gays, and want to make our very lives a crime. GOP Senators compare us to kleptomaniacs, alcoholics, and man-dog sex. And they can't even handle a bronze breast on a statue.

And we're the ones picking a fight over sex.

Spare me your sanctimonious bullshit now that those of us in the gay community and on the left have finally - finally - started to fight fire with fire by simply holding you to the very standards you legislate over us. We are simply giving the GOP the sex-less utopia it's always wanted. How does it feel?

John Aravosis, Sanctimonious bullshit for the Hotline, AMERICAblog.com, February 16, 2005


The past few weeks following Summers' blasphemous remarks at an economics conference have been embarrassing for some of us gals. Maybe I spend too much time with men — can there be such a thing? — but I'm finding the fair sex to be most unfair and somewhat short-staffed in the logic and reason departments.

What Summers said, in terms that left a reasonable amount of wiggle room for reasonable people, happens to be factually, biologically, chemically, genetically, anecdotally and historiagraphically true. Even if it makes some tortured academics reach for the fainting couch.

He did not say that women are dumb, as some claimed in the immediate aftermath. He did not say that women are incapable of doing as well as men in math and science. He merely said that, given the many possible explanations for why men as a group actually do perform better than women as a group — consistently testing better in those areas — that biological differences might be worth considering.
