What’s up with Tweety? He almost seems to have a soul on occasion and then he goes and swills some cocktail weenies with Sally Quinn and declares that the only reason Hillary got elected to the Senate was because people felt sorry for her, unlike Scott Brown who is a braintrust. Jeez, it still pisses me off whenever I remember that but that’s not the subject of this post.
This post is about how Tweety and Barney Frank took on Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, the kind of guy some in my family adore like he is a dreamy uber-Christian demigod, striding the marbled halls of justice with the wind in his fists and the stars round his wrists. Anyway, someone must have spiked Tweety’s tea because he went after Tony relentlessly going as far as showing instant replays. It’s a thing of beauty. Why can’t we see the conservatives get swirlied like this on a regular basis? I might even reinvest in cable to see that.
But the best part (or worst part, depending on you perspective) is when Tony Perkins goes all psycho on special needs children. Apparently, they’re not worthy of loving parents and no one wants to adopt them anyway. Well, well, well, we can now see what Tony really thinks of children born to the wrong parents. Nice white, asian and south american infants are peachy keen for intact heterosexual families but an older kid or a kid with the wrong skin color or HIV status or disability doesn’t deserve parents at all no matter what kind they are. Anyway, check it out.
Yeah! Give’im hell, Tweety. Ask him to explain that whole ugly business with Lot’s daughters and the bear that ate the kids who made fun of Elisha’s hair. Why stop with Abraham?
Also, there’s this little bit on Fox where the hosts are discussing Obama’s drug use. I guess it’s a tit for yesterday’s tat on Romney’s stupid and mean haircutting escapade. If I were the Obama campaign, I wouldn’t have gone there because now, Fox is going to feel justified bringing out all of the drug stuff and even if they tip towards the racist side (and how could they not, they’re Fox), nobody is going to care when the Obama campaign cries “wolf!”. The crocodile tears and faux outrage over racism is going to backfire this year. Fox goes as far as accusing Obama of selling drugs- and then apologizes for getting that wrong.
What’s that saying about a lie making it halfway around the world before the truth gets its shoes on?
