SOTU: Freedom For All, Unless You're Gay
I compliment the president on his remarks regarding Saudi Arabia and Egypt. We trumpet freedom and spill blood in its cause, while we break bread with despots providing that they dance to our tune.
Bob Dole and Rumsfelf have both enjoyed a good drink with the tyrant of Iraq.
Yet again the president plays lip service to the Federal Marriage Amendment which denies marriage rights to the countries gay citizens. The president is a bigot and his administration is bigoted.
The new Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings, wasn't even officially in office yet, when she found the time to decry the adventures of a cartoon rabbit, Buster. She said,
"Many parents would not want their young children exposed to the lifestyles portrayed in this episode."
She wrote that to Pat Mitchell, the C.E.O. of PBS, in a clear effort produce a chilling effect on her and P.B.S. as a whole. It worked.
If Miss Spellings is concerned about parents being exposed to Lesbians, I suggest that she insist that the vice president's daughter, Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe, no longer appear in any public Republican Convention, public forum or meeting. After all, young children could be watching.
