Hey little sister who's your Superman?

SOMETHING I JUST DON’T FATHOM

In a recent post here a reader commented that he was proud of the fact that he had voted for George C Plus Augustus Bush not once, but twice.

OK, I get how a person who was maybe not paying a lot of attention and who was maybe also a conservative republican would get snookered by that whole “compassionate conservative” line of complete and utter bullshit the first time around in 2000.

Or the fact that Bush, a man who was born on third base but who was convinced that he had hit a triple to get there, sold himself as the first MBA president and would run this country like an efficient business {ignoring the fact that Shrub had pretty much bankrupted every business he ever ran}.

But by the election of 2004 it was clear to anyone with just two synapses firing in their fucking brain, and who was paying even the slightest attention, that Bush was an unmitigated disaster and didn’t deserve to be elected as county dog catcher in West Bumfuck Texas — let alone returned to office as President of the United States.

But then! Then after the horror of Katrina in 2005, the total abortion that the Iraq War had obviously become due to administration bungling and incompetence, the failure to finish off the Taliban and kill Bin Laden because Bush/Cheney ginned up a fake reason to invade Iraq and took the eye off the ball, followed by the financial crisis and the Great Recession and the fact that Bush increased the national debt from the $18 billion under Clinton in 2000 to $1.632 TRILLION by the end of his second term . . . .

Well, I just don’t know how an even slightly rational person can be proud of the fact that he voted for Bush TWICE!

AND CROW ABOUT IT ON A LIBERAL GAY BLOG NO LESS!

I thought I had long ago rid this blog of the pestilence of idiot reader/commenters.

Apparently not.

    Hahahahaaaa! I think I’m in love with you. You always seem to say everything I am too exhausted to type. Keep it up!

    In total agreement with you on this one, Scott – there’s just no rational explanation.

    I know he isn’t clever enough to do this on purpose but I like it when these ‘idiot reader/commenters’ get under your skin because I so enjoy reading your responses..

    As Judge Judy says, “You can’t fix Stupid.”

    Ignorance you can cure but stupidity is forever. I have come to the conclusion in my almost eighty years that most Repukes are just plain stupid.

    Scott, I am surprised at you, a very intelligent person, not recognizing Michael’s handicap — if he was fucked in the head enough to be a “Gay republican” and to vote for puppet, GWB, I would expect him to be deluded enough to be proud of it and not see why he ought not say so here.
    Remember, I am the guy who once had an offer from the President of the Los Angeles Log Cabin fools in answer to my ad (he did realize I knew him)– he told me that he was butch in public (not true) but wanted to come over and be “my little maid”.
    Yes, if he had been a 6′ tall cop or fireman, I would have told him to get the apron and cap on, but he weighed about 120 and was balding and wimpy.

    Could this guy have been a paid troll? Someone to crow on about W in a gay blog so he can claim that even gay people on liberal blogs voted for W.

    It’s not impossible.

    And realize there are people (not on this blog) who think Falin’ Palin is intelligent. And she is one of the few people in politics who makes W look smart by comparison

    Please let the record reflect that I was not the “Michael” who said/did something as stupid as vote for GWB.

    Though I did have a prominent Seattle hotel general manager boss who was gay and Jewish vote for the sumbitch, TWICE!

    Boss tried to convince me to vote for him, too. Kept telling me the Bushes “loved the Jews”. I still give him shit over that.
