Live from New York: GOP applauds homosexuality!

In a surprise turn of events Monday night, the entire Republican convention came out of the closet on national TV! My jaw just dropped.

"Thank God that George Bush is President," said Rudy Guiliani -- and the crowd went wild!

Republicans? Supporting the man who is supporting sodomy? How can this be?

George Bush has gone on record in strong support of -- not gay marriage -- that's too tame. He is in full support of US policies that would make even a Harley-driving leather-bar "girly-man" biker boy blush.

For example, the Bush group has spent billions on aid to Afghan warlords whose henchmen rape and sell young boys. And EVERYONE knows what goes on at Abu Ghraib. We are talking ABOMINATION here! Definitely.

Yet when the man who put the Sodom in Sodom and Gomorrah got his name touted onstage Monday night, all these supposedly anti-gay Republicans applauded like crazy. "Four more years! Four more years!" I was totally surprised. Do they not realize that if Bush policies continue at their present rate, by 2008 the entire US Army and half the Middle East will be playing "Drop the soap" bigtime!

Usually I always carry a book with me to read whenever I'm waiting in supermarket lines or something. In New York, the book I'm carrying to read on the subway and while waiting to monitor marches is Azar Nafisi's "Reading Lolita in Tehran". On page 47, Nafisi stated, "Every fairy tale offers the potential to surpass present limits so in a sense the fairy tale offers you freedoms that reality denies." That explains everything! The neo-cons are offering America fairy tales -- in order to deny the grubby little reality offered by the Bush gang: Lies, fraud, corruption, perversity, murder, bankruptcy. It is their "Once upon a time..." approach to our post-Bush reality. And the Repubs in New York simply couldn't get enough of it on Monday.

I would like to suggest that, instead of hiding their heads in fairy tales that sound wonderful but mean nothing, Americans need to look truth in the eye and deal with it constructively and creatively. Why? Because it is always a good idea to remember that ostriches in neo-con leather bars are not in a good position to ignore reality!
