The Politics Of Hate

Brief political rant here. Then regular programming.

Considering all the issues America faces today, that George Bush would decide it's time again to gay bash from high above just to bring out the homophobe vote for November is beyond reproach. He's started two wars, authorized torture and domestic spying, handed out wealth welfare at the expense of the national budget and yet he's never quite satisifed. I'm amazed anyone still considers this person to be anything which could defined as "moral" in a modern society.

This is waste of taxpayer money and time in order to pull of a PR stunt for the fringe of American religion. It represents a true low in American politics.

While I'm on the soapbox:

* An Inconvenient Truth (
* Hijacking Catastrophe (what F 9/11 should have been)
* Stephen Colbert's White House Correspondent's Dinner (a must see)

Saw it this weekend thanks to Google, a wifi connection and my brother's Mac laptop.

Mainstream said it was unfunny apparently. Hence not nearly enough people have seen it. It's a triump of comedy.

Technology is a wonderful, thankfully.

My favorite line from Colbert is from when he had Jesse Jackson on the show:

"It's like boxing an iceberg. Enjoy that metaphor, by the way, because your grandchildren will have no idea what it means."

Taking on Bush the way he did, in the same room and only 20 feet away, was an incredibly brave thing to do.
