Oh, The Irony!

Is freeping unbelievable! How they ever managed to paint John Kerry as a flipflopper when these guys change positions faster than Bush changes his rationale for invading Iraq.
Apparently, the Left hates gays and believes that private sexual preferences belong on the front page.
Excuse me? Did I read that right? From the party that was so fixated on a blue dress and a cigar?

I know nothing about the alleged incidents of which Senator Craig (R-ID) is purported to be a participant. That is not the issue. The issue is the fluid attachment to truth and reality that the right seems to enjoy. For the last two elections "prevent the gays from getting married or have any rights whatsoever" has been front and center in the battle to control the country. Now, when it is obvious that some members of the Republican party prefer outies instead of innies, the righties are going to squeal foul?

These are the same people who wanted a President impeached for lying about having consensual sex with a woman over 21, which was a matter between him and his wife. Period. As long as she didn't kill him, it was none of the country's business. But that didn't stop the "moral" Republicans from investigating the minutiae of Clinton's life. Nope, not at all. Now they find it unseemly that someone might find it interesting, that a Senator who is alleged to swing both ways and then deliberately votes against his conscience, is hiding it from the public? Of course it's interesting. Heck, it's titillating.
Once again, the Left shows its obsession with sexuality, but it's really more than that. The Left obsesses over identity politics in all forms, and that obsession comes out in pathological terms. Rogers reveals this in his blog post, demanding that gay staffers on the Hill identify their orientation publicly, or else he will do it for them. Sexual identity is everything to him, and the concept of sexual privacy has no value to him at all. He wants to humiliate gays who prefer to keep their sexual activity private, forcing them to wear the virtual pink triangle against their will to experience obloquy and castigation.
Pink triangle for you, blue dress for us. Obloquy? Surely you jest. Did America really need to know about the details of a blowjob? The story was shoved down our throats and you guys salivated for more. As Gary Hart found out, you can't play footsie with someone who isn't your spouse and not expect to get caught. Eventually.

Suck it up, relax. It goes down easier that way.

  1. I personally can't believe that anyone cares who anyone is sleeping with, except maybe that person's significant other. Not my business; don't much care.
