Read These Now Because This Faggot, YES I said it, is Pissed

According to Michelangelo Signorile and Mike Rogers of Blogactive, McCain’s Chief of Staff, Mark Buse is gay. I posted at my place yesterday about it. There are so many closet gays in the Republican party, it is downright ridiculous. Tap. Tap. Text. Text. If all the gay Republicans want to live in an idealistic dreamland that is nowhere near what modern conservatism and GOP principles are, let'em. Second-class citizen isn't my choice. I will be damned if McCain's new found love for the ultra-fanatical religious right, a lá Palin, is sending me to the nearest Exodus internment camp. Since there is supposedly a GAY AGENDA, I am evoking the SUPER POWERS in Article 2, section 666 and call forth the locusts. GAY SUPER POWERS better be uniting. Between the hypocrisy and the intolerance of HOMOS in GOP closets, I might have to put on a Larry Kramer cap and shout louder.

In other news:

Well, this isn't other news, but I was wondering if anyone had a copy of Curve's version of "Overground" by Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was released via Curve's website circa 2000 and I need a copy.

Now, other news:

Transgender vet wins suit against Library Of Congress.

Army tried to silence me over sex case, says lesbian soldier. (Telegraph) A delightful soldier asked her to participate in a threesome, claiming, "Look, I might be able to convert you. You don't know what you are missing." A cock converts. And some say romance is dead.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel ain't happy (indirectly) about Bush Economics. (Spiegel)

"Most economists accept that the nation's financial crisis — the worst since the Great Depression — has reached such perilous proportions that an expensive intervention is required. But considerable disagreement centers on how to go about it. The Treasury's proposal for a bailout, now being negotiated with Congress, is being challenged as fundamentally deficient." (NY)

Hmmm... Let's put on our thinking caps. We have a President and a willing Congress who have doubled the national debt over eight years, printed and borrowed money out of thin air, waged futile wars, hidden every aspect of governance in a cloak of signing statements and shredders and now bailout the upper 1%. Wow! Capitalist Socialism works! It only took a Republican President to make it happen! Can I get an amen and directions to the nearest bread line?

Attorneys for Governor Palin (and the McCain Campaign) "broker her cooperation" concerning "Troopergate." (ABC) How would our world exist without attorneys?

"Almost 13,000 Chinese babies are in hospital after consuming tainted baby milk, and a further 40,000-plus have been treated." (Guardian)

OMG! The 9th Circuit ruled that the EPA must develop pollution standards for builders. Whether the EPA does is another matter.

I AM SHOCKED! Sexism pays: Study finds men who hold traditional views of women earn more than men who don't.

NO Prop 8 ads hit the airwaves. California Shakers better vote! Mister Petulant believes in discipline.

Since I am sounding a bit angry today (as I should be) let's take another gander at kittens.

I am feeling Dalida's "Je suis malade."


Since I am compiling the morning readings in the evening, I will now depart and watch Torchwood Series Two until I fall asleep amongst the gentle comfort of my cocoon. The simple comforts retain sanity. Since I am a good capitalist, budding socialist, I will cherish my high thread count, Egyptian (wait, their religion is different, oh well) cotton sheets.

See ya in the big bad world tomorrow kittens.
